    11.2 down the wicket to a short one, there's a top-edge pull and now Hayden's gone 56/2
    3.2 Clarke falls early, Gillespie gets him with a well-directed short ball which Clarke tries to pull and instead skies an edge short in on the off side 16/1

    19.1 a much-deserved wicket for Oram, Hussey lofting the ball straight to extra cover where How takes a straightforward catch. So Australia struggling a touch now, having set off on a decent note 87/3
    38.4 but falls the next ball. That's a huge wicket for New Zealand, Symonds falling across the line and trapped in front, low 201/4
    45.4 outside off, a slower ball just short of a length, Haddin cuts and doesn't get back into his ground, Hopkins tidying up from backward point, and McCullum taking the return shy 246/5
    49.5 wide outside off, driven to cover where there's a tidy return to Gillespie who breaks the stumps and Hopes is well out, no need for a replay, he wasn't even in the frame 280/6

    4.2 a second catch for Braddin, a nick off the toe of the bat, and Sinclair, trying to cut off the back foot, is snapped wide with a tumble to his right 8/2
    2.5 McCullum goes early, a big wicket for Australia, and he will kick himself for that shot, flapping at a wide, slower, swinging ball, Haddin taking the faint edge through tidily 7/1
    11.1 cuts back in from outside off and he strikes immediately! A big beam for Hopes, as there was no foot movement from the batsman 43/3

    32.5 full yorker from the top drawer, Styris backs away and his middle stump is shattered 158/9
    14.5 a swing and a miss, trying to hit through the line, but the ball was too quick and nipped back in trapping him in front of his stumps 60/4
    17.3 the dangerman goes, Oram sending that up and up towards backward square leg where Lee comes in off the rope to take a very good catch, low 72/5
    23.3 and the change has worked, Hopkins flicking up off his legs, Clarke making yards with his dive to take a good, low catch at short backward square 88/6
    23.6 and he's gone. Two wickets in the over for Hogg, a very sorry Vettori walks off after edging through one which was leaving him, so it's another catch for Haddin 88/7

    28.2 yorker cleans him up, not much Mills could have done about that 118/8
    33.6 drags short and swung to Symonds at midwicket and that's all over 168/10
