    2.4 all too easy for Dan the Man, Warner tries to go over the top but fails to get under a pitched-up delivery on the off stump, the ball travels off the splice of the bat and Vettori takes the skier very easily at mid-off, a colleague of mine described the shot perfectly - a beach cricket slog 4/1
    47.4 and Clarke misses out on a century! O'Brien bowls an inswinging yorker down the leg side, Clarke steps down the track and tries to clip it wide of midwicket, the ball hits his pad and deflects on to the stumps 206/5
    9.6 very cheap dismissal there, Southee keeps it slightly wide of the offstump, the ball holds its line after pitching and Haddin tries to cut without really getting beside the line of the ball, he gets a tame edge to McCullum, he tried to steer it down to third man actually 35/2
    17.5 direct hit and David Hussey's got to go! He pushes a good length ball in front of mid-off and takes a chance with a sharp single to Vettori, unfortunately he taps it to Vettori's left and that enables him to gather the ball quickly and fire it on the stumps with his throwing arm, the third umpire takes a look and Hussey's just short of the crease 63/3
    45.6 the slower ball consumes him this time, he goes for a wild flat batted slog but mistimes it completely, Vettori takes it easily at midwicket running backwards slightly 196/4

    27.1 Gone! McCullum departs after an uncharacteristic 43. That was a slower ball outside off, full enough to induce McCullum into playing a drive, he reaches forward and chips it straight to Michael Hussey at short cover 104/3
    4.2 he's gone finally, Clarke will be mightily relieved, much fuller outside off and he attempts a rather lethargic drive with minimum foot movement, gets an outside edge and White snaps a good low catch at first slip 21/1
    15.4 short of a good length outside off, moves away as Fulton tries to push at it off the back foot, produces a thick edge that's gobbled up easily by Haddin. 62/2
    41.3 momentary loss in concentration and Taylor pays the price!! Short outside off and he slashes at it blindly, played away from his body, gets a thin edge and Haddin makes no mistake. There was no need for that shot, and it's cost him his wicket. 176/4
