    26.6 two in two as Cook plays all round a straight one and has his middle stump pegged back ... a jubilant Ryder is mobbed as well he might be as he's removed both openers in his first over 158/2
    26.5 driven to Oram ten yards in from the long-on boundary, the fielder never had to move 158/1
    39.1 the breakthrough at last, and O'Brien has his maiden scalp. Short, but a touch quicker than England have been used to in recent overs. A steepling top-edge, well pouched in the deep by Kyle Mills. Timely for New Zealand, but a handy innings nonetheless 232/3
    43.5 cunning stuff ... Vettori holds one back, Pietersen is way too early as he aims to thump the ball over midwicket and the ball ever-so-gently clomps into the stumps 277/4

    45.4 another wicket for Vettori but they are coming at a cost ... tossed up, Shah goes for the straight six but gets too much elevation and Fulton has time to come five yards in from the boundary to take a good catch at long-off 291/5
    49.6 low full toss hit high towards long-on, Fulton sprints in, makes a lot of ground, dives, and holds the ball a foot above the turf. An excellent catch for the big man gets the crowd excited but it's all rather late ... 340/6

    10.1 a wider and slower ball, swung high from outside off stump, it climbs miles into the sky, three men converge at deepish straight midwicket and it's Anderson who holds a superb catch running flat out to his left 70/1
    24.3 beaten outside the off stump, Mustard whips off the bails and McCullum turns and starts to head off before the umpire beckons him to stay and wait for the third umpire. It's a short reprieve ... he dragged a long way out and while his foot was back it wasn't grounded 161/2

    49.5 full toss hit hard to mid-off, Anderson picks up and throws down the bowler's end stumps with the batsman yards short 339/7
    37.3 redemption for Anderson, and a vital life-line for England. Outside off, hard-handed swish, clear edge, simple catch. Well bowled, and a window of opportunity 253/3
    43.4 he goes for the big hit over long-on, doesn't quite get hold of it and Anderson takes the catch two yards inside the rope 301/4
    44.4 chipped short of mid-on, Pietersen picks up on the half volley and underarms off balance as he is falling and hits the bowler's end stumps with Fulton a foot short 304/5
    45.5 wide, driven hard with no footwork but straight at Pietersen at extra cover who holds a sharp catch at thigh height 315/6
