    8.2 smeared high and handsome, scraping the long white cloud itself, and Mills at mid-on has to back-pedal to take a steepling chance. He does well, and that's the end of an aggressive and impressive innings from Mustard 76/4

    5.5 and that's the end of that! The adrenalin was pumping for Wright, and he couldn't resist swinging at the best delivery of the over. Almost yorker length, straight and angling in. Takes out middle stump to end an entertaining innings 65/1
    6.5 low full toss, raps Pietersen on the pad as he walks across the stumps and that is absolutely plumb! 70/2
    7.3 dabbed into the leg-side, Bell wanted the single but didn't exactly motor for it. Ross Taylor at mid-on hurtled round, picked up well, and pinged down the non-striker's stumps from about ten yards. Billy Bowden calls for the replay, but Bell has already given up the ghost 71/3
    18.5 and he obliges ... short, he shapes to hit over long-on but seriously underclubs and the catch is taken ten yards inside the boundary 178/6
    18.4 and it's a one-ball reprieve as Shah smacks the ball to Taylor at long-off ... he was right back on the boundary and had to check where his feet where after he had caught it 178/5
    19.5 pushed from wide of the off stump to deep cover, Mascarenhas takes on Ryder's arm and loses by a foot. A really good throw as he was off balance and McCullum only had to gather and whip the bails off .. 193/7

    2.5 a bit of width and Ryder is aiming too straight. This one is swung high into the air, three men converge on it in the covers, and Shah it is who clings on with outstretched hands. That's the breakthrough 14/1
    3.6 outside off, a low full-toss, but that's inside-edged onto the stumps, and now New Zealand are in a lot of trouble. They needed their captain to go big, but he's gone now 19/2
    5.5 that's the way to respond. A slower ball, wider as well, Taylor is looking to hit leg-side again, but instead scoops a simple chance to Ian Bell, running back in the covers 42/3

    12.4 he shuffles to the off and loses his leg stump 86/6
    10.2 wide, he slashes but gets a thick edge and Sidebottom at deepish backward point holds a routine catch 72/4
    11.5 another sweep but no real power and it's catching practice for Anderson at deep square leg 79/5
    13.4 driven to deep cover, Wright takes a routine catch at the third attempt and then grins sheepishly 94/7
