    4.3 again back of a length outside off stump, and Warner can only thump it to mid-off's lap, its the captain himself who pouches it in his lap 38/2
    3.4 taken this time, and what a ball to get a wicket! Southee sends down a full toss, Haddin walks into the shot and hits the ball back over the bowler, who cups it up in the air and then takes it on the second attempt, to his right .. Haddin can't believe he's bunted a full toss back to Southee 34/1
    6.6 timber! Butler pitches it up on the stumps, very full and into the block hole, Ferguson walks away and swings, no contact made, and the base of the stumps is shattered 52/3
    17.2 tosses it up on a length, slowing the pace, David sashays down and ends up chipping the ball up in the air, Broom steadies himself under it down the ground on the off side and takes it simply enough 128/5

    14.5 gets across his stumps and tries to paddle an overpitched delivery, but doesn't manage to get bat on ball and so Elliott traps Voges in front of about leg stump 104/4
    18.4 up, up, up ... and ... into orbit ... it going, going, and ... oh well held Vettori! White heaves at another length ball on the stumps, sending it miles up into the evening sky, looks to be lost up there but the captain settles under it and takes a great catch just inside the ropes at deep midwicket 135/6

    19 swings at a waist high full toss, gets a faint clip, McCullum dives superbly, injured shoulder and all, and intercepts the top edge brilliantly, then flicks the ball back to Southee, who runs out Henriques for 1 on his Australia debut 138/7

    18.1 Superb catch! Could that be the decisive moment?? Full outside off, struck away straight to Voges at long-on, he takes it just inside the ropes but loses his balance, throws the ball up in the air to ensure he doesn't carry it over the boundary, trips on the way forward but retains his composure to pouch it comfortably back again, kept his cool throughout there and has possibly turned the match in Australia's favour here 131/4
    0.4 good length on the off stump and angling into the right hander, tried to drive it off the front foot, missed it completely and was struck in line with middle. The umpire had no hesitation there, that looked plumb! 5/1
    2.2 short of a good length on middle and off, tries to turn it away off the back foot towards square leg, gets the top edge and Haddin takes a dolly behind the wickets. 12/2
    10.4 goes for a slog over midwicket despite not being there to the pitch, gets the top-edge, Callum Ferguson runs in from deep midwicket to take a well-judged catch as it took ages to come down 73/3

    19.1 run out, slower offcutter bowled on a good length outside off, came forward to slog it over midwicket, runs for the single but Haddin throws down the stumps at the striker's end with an under-arm flick to find the batsman well short 137/5
