    6.3 Marsh is gone, he chips a length delivery to the two-metre tall Peter Fulton at short cover, Fulton had to jump to hold on to that chance, good reflexes from Fulton, Marsh had looked in good touch during his short stay 20/1
    8.5 Warner's gone, similar dismissal to Marsh's, shortish ball, gave Warner room to free his arms, he cuts it but gives Fulton at short cover a much simple catch, Fulton didn't have to move and that came to him at a nice catchable height, around his chest 23/2
    10.3 Ponting's run out! he turns a full ball towards square leg , Neil Broom is the fielder, he's on to the ball in a flash, the throw is fantastic as well, powerful and accurate, McCullum whips the bails off and Ponting is a couple of feet short of the crease 27/3
    17.5 Another run-out! Clarke's gone, he square drives it past the diving backward point, Guptill does the fielding at the boundary, the throw is wonderful again, one-bounce and on top of the stumps, Clarke's inches short of making it as McCullum takes off the bails 51/4
    19.1 strikes first ball, David Hussey's caught behind down the legside, short and angling down, goes for a paddle-pull, McCullum moves over to the leg side to take the catch, David Hussey's furious with the decision 54/5
    43.1 first ball of the Powerplay gets a wicket, Hussey has to go, he tried to chip a length ball over the infield, mid-off was on the edge of the circle, and it's a simple catch for him, Hussey's innings ends at 49 152/7
    34.6 dragged on! Haddin advances to a full one just outside off stump and goes for a drive but can only succeed in inside-edging back onto his stumps and Mills celebrates 115/6
    43.4 Hopes is gone, both the settled batsmen are dismissed in the same over, he was trying to slam that over the covers, gets a top edge which balloons in the air for a dolly to Vettori to mid-off 153/8

    48.4 and that's the end of the innings, Johnson goes for a big swipe over midwicket, doesn't make contact with the ball, which homes in on the leg bail, Australia fold for 181 181/10
    44.3 Bracken's lbw this time, he was attempting to work that towards midwicket, hit him in front of middle, looked out, though Hawkeye suggests it might have just gone down leg 154/9

    0.2 McCullum's gone lbw this time, stunning start from Tait, that was 145.7 kmh, McCullum went on the backfoot to defend, hits his pads in front, umpire didn't spot a huge inside edge 0/1
    10.2 bowled em! Bracken strikes with a full delivery that pitches on off stump and hurries Guptill into a loose defensive push, but he's very late on the shot and the ball nips back in and draws the faintest of inside edges back onto the stumps 25/2
    13.2 well held, Mitchell! A very scratchy innings comes to an end courtesy a superb reflex catch from Johnson, who pitches it up on off stump and then sticks out his left hand as he tumbles down in his followthrough, plucking the checked off-drive back in the air rather excellently 25/3
    47.3 a fabulous catch by Clarke and we have a twist in the tale here, Bracken pitches it up outside off, he walks across his stumps, reaches forward and slices it on the up to backward point, Clarke flings himself to his left and cups it with both hands 170/7
    22.3 easy catch! Hopes pitches it on a length, Elliott drives on the rise to short cover, where Mike Hussey falls to his right and intercepts the shot, that was like catching practice 64/4
    35.2 Australia claw back, now there's a bit of controversy here, Clarke gets it to skid through on a good length, Broom makes a lot of room to cut but he's beaten for pace, the ball appears to clip the top of the off bail but replays indicate that Haddin had his gloves in front of the stumps before the ball could make contact. Did the ball actually hit the stumps? Did Haddin whip off the bails by mistake? Very inconclusive but no wonder Broom looked perplexed as he walked back 106/5

    46.3 he gets a little too cheeky and loses his wicket, he makes way too much room and exposes all three stumps, Tait fires in a fast yorker and hits the middle stump, now will this wicket change things a bit? 168/6

    49.2 timber! Bracken bowls that deadly off cutter and Southee fails to pick the slower ball, he exposes his leg stump and tries to heave it away over square leg as the ball thuds on to his middle stump 178/8
