    9.6 got him! A reverse sweep from Vincent to a straight, full ball which raps him on the toe and that's bang in front of middle. What an awful, hopeless shot that was 66/4
    2.2 shot! But caught! He absolutely nailed that on the front foot; a crunching, satisfying crack of the bat, but the ball found cover who didn't need to move a muscle, taking an easy catch in front of his nose 14/1
    4.6 gone this time. Poor shot; he tried to smack this over long-on but got a leading edge to mid-off who swallowed a simple skier 34/2
    6.4 fine bowling from Morkel! That's the length on this pitch; it's got plenty of bounce and the taller bowlers are extracting it. It rises on Taylor who fends it straight to first slip 45/3
    16.2 oh, well caught Smith! Styris thumped this on the front foot, timing it very well but Smith, at mid-off, timed his leap to his left perfectly to clutch a fine catch above his head 98/7
    12.3 oh dear. A meaningless shot to a poor, wide delivery outside off. He just patted it to point who scooped it up at ankle height to take an easy catch. A clueless stroke, really; rather like a coach might angle his bat to give the slips catching practice 78/5
    14.3 short, he tries to pull it but gets a top edge to Morkel at mid-on who back-peddles nicely to take a tumbling catch. New Zealand are finished 84/6

    4.6 goddim! Smith's poor run of form continues as he plays a horrid, cross-batted stroke and gets a thick outside edge to McCullum 33/2
    1.4 goddim! A straight bouncer from Gillespie which Kallis hooks straight down fine-leg's throat 6/1
    8.6 gone! Very well bowled from Vettori, beating Duminy in the flight. He came prancing down the pitch, was beaten by the turn and McCullum does the rest. 64/3

    12.3 he's got him! Boucher went for the sweep, was beaten by the turn and up goes the finger. He is decidedly unhappy 89/4
    14.3 gone! Taylor's taken a blinder at deep midwicket, as Pollock tried to pull this but couldn't time it. Taylor, crouching low, took it inches above the turf and a metre inside the rope 103/5
    17.2 gone, beaten by the offie! Morkel mistimes it straight to Vettori at cover. A wasteful stroke, frankly 116/6
    19.2 cut to short third man again who lines up a throw. There's a mix-up between the batsmen and Vincent, at the non-striker's end, collects the ball and shatters the stumps to dismiss Philander! 124/7
