    11.1 poor shot, frustration as the pressure had been building - he thinks he's received a pullable ball but succeeds only in crashing a thick edge right back into middle stump 37/2
    2.6 and then, just like that, Anderson bowls it fullish outside off stump and McCullum thumps it ferociously but finds a leaping Pietersen at mid-off 19/1
    13.5 good delivery here from Broad removes the dangerous Taylor, sneaking through the defences as Taylor looked to play it from outside off, and the full ball nips back and knocks back off stump 42/4
    12.3 gone now, some lift off the deck and Styris shapes to evade but can't get his hands down in time and the ball comes off the gloves and is snapped appreciatively by Ambrose 42/3
    20.6 good grief, he's got a wicket with a full toss! Out slips a gentle full loosener as Anderson slips at delivery point, but would you believe, Flynn's attempted pull simply balloons up and nestles in mid-on's palms 49/5
    48.5 but Anderson strikes at last, banging in a short ball which Elliott goes to hook, Wright sets himself at deep midwicket and then realises he's slightly misjudged it, steps back and clings on as the ball carries him to the ground with the momentum 164/8
    29.3 and there he goes, actually timing the pull shot much better than the last attempt, but not good enough to beat deep fine leg, where the substitute Porterfield steadies himself, runs back and holds an easy catch 75/6
    38.5 soft dismissal, Vettori waits for it to turn away from him and then drives up to mid on where Shah comes round and watches the ball right into his hands, Vettori having reached away from his body and stopped on the shot, neither of which were good ideas 110/7
    49.6 Mills goes on the final ball, going for the hard pull and a top edge deviates up and out to Collingwood at point who takes the catch 182/10
    49.1 slower ball and Southee steps back and carves up high and higher and over towards long on where Pietersen waits and takes a low catch by his knees, tumbling forward at the same time 168/9

    15.6 wide ball outside off, a soft dismissal there and he walks off shaking his head after playing far away from his body and cutting to McCullum who makes no mistake in the covers 62/3
    0.4 edged and taken, Wright feeling for one pitched up outside off stump and swinging away, and the catch is taken low to his right by Styris at second slip 3/1
    4.4 got 'em! Pietersen goes, flicking the full ball across the line straight to Elliott at midwicket, who cups it in front of his face 19/2
    16.5 blinding catch! Bopara goes as the short ball comes in, and he cuts off the back foot hard as you like, How dives to his left and snaps up a superb catch 64/4
    42.5 gone, Southee! Thats his fourth wicket of the day, and what a big one, pitching just outside off stump, swinging it in and rapping Collingwood below the knee roll as he hops and is late on the shot, umpire raises his finger 152/8
    18.2 edged and gone! Shah goes for a duck, driving away from his body and it's snapped at second slip 64/5
    18.6 big edge, the ball moving off the seam and then carrying to first slip where Taylor juggles, parries it up as he snaps at it but takes it on the second grasp 64/6
    35.6 soft dismissal! Styris bowls it on middle and leg and Swann's battling innings ends with a lazy chip to a waiting Taylor at midwicket, much like the way Pietersen went earlier 129/7
    45.5 what a catch down the leg side! Brilliant! Vettori serves it up down the leg side, giving it a bit of a tweak, Broad shapes to work it around the corner but gets the faintest of tickles on it and Hopkins, shuffling to his right, holds the deflection very well 160/9
    46.2 all over and New Zealand have levelled the series! Tremlett plays a true tailender's slog, top-edging it up in the air for Vettori to hold a dolly at cover, and he releases the ball with plenty of emotion as his team-mates converge 160/10
