    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
