    2.4 gone! Goes for a wild swing over long-on, fraction full on the off stump, is not to the pitch, the ball sails high and Vettori at mid-off takes a well judged catch after waiting for ages for it to get to him 9/1

    4.1 Gone!! Full outside off and moves away, Ponting's fishing for it off the front foot, gets a thin edge straight to the keeper. New Zealand have struck early here 20/2
    5.5 gone, wild swing and pays the price! Full on middle and leg, Hussey makes room to smash it over mid-on, it came back in a a touch and crashed into leg stump. Australia in a spot of bother now at 30 for 3 30/3
    11.1 gone! What an inspired bowling change!! Short on middle and off, there to hit, he pulls it away straight to Diamanti stationed perfectly at deep midwicket. Big wicket for New Zealand 70/4

    0.2 bowled 'im!! Massive blow! Full on middle and leg and swung away, McCullum played down the wrong line there, tried to swing it away over midwicket, missed and the stumps took a beating! 2/1

    3.3 gone! Fulton's thrown away his wicket! Short of a length on the off stump, he makes room to cut that over point, gets the top-edge and Ferguson runs a few steps back to pouch an good catch. Now that changes things 40/2
    4.5 he's gifted his wicket here after a superb shot the previous ball! Good length outside off, tries to swat it over the bowler's head, gets the top-edge and Hussey at cover takes a well-judged catch as it takes forever to come down 56/3
    5.5 edged and gone! Elliot is gone first ball! Fishing for it outside off, short and wide, tried to run it down to third man, got a thin edge straight to Haddin 68/4
    6.1 run out, Guptill's running out of partners here, full on the off stump, defended towards point and they attempt a quick single, Ponting runs in, picks the ball cleanly and throws down the stumps at the striker's end in one motion to find Broom well short of his ground. Could that be the decisive blow? 68/5
    7.6 what a catch!! Good length on the off stump, makes room and chips it lethargically over mid-off, Michael Hussey runs back to his right, leaps and plucks it with one hand to complete a neat catch! 73/6
