    4.5 signs of desperation there, Australia have struck early, fullish outside off, tries to slice that over point, gets the elevation but straight to Ferguson at third man 12/1
    21.4 what a catch! Cameron White has pulled off a blinder, good length on the off stump, driven uppishly wide of cover where White dives low to his left to pluck that inches from the ground 96/3
    5.2 he's given him! Good length on middle, and held its line this time. Taylor came forward to defend, missed it completely and was struck in line. Correct decision there, Taylor showed his bat to the umpire immediately upon being struck on the pads, but Bucknor is having none of the nonsense 16/2
    44.2 the end of a great innings, short on middle and leg, he pulls that away, times it a touch too well, straight to Michael Hussey stationed perfectly for that shot at deep midwicket 252/8
    31.4 big wicket! The bowling change works! Tossed up outside off, lands on a full length, Broom is tempted to go for a big one over long-off, gets more elevation than distance and is caught easily by Hilfenhaus in the deep 149/4
    32.3 tame dismissal and New Zealand are sliding here, full on the off stump, chips it lethargically straight to Bracken at mid-off. 152/5
    33.5 gone!! Flighted outside off and that's a googly Vettori fails to pick, tries to turn it off the front foot wide of midwicket, gets a leading edge straight o Clarke at short cover who takes a dolly 157/6
    36.1 short on middle, makes room to pull it away over midwicket, gets a top-edge, Haddin calls, comes forward to pouch a comfortable catch 183/7
    46.2 that's it, almost all over for New Zealand, full toss outside off stump, tries to smash it over the covers, mistimes it straight to Ponting who's standing there at the edge of the circle. The bat slips out of McCullum's hands as he goes for the shot 262/9
