    4.5 great shot, I'm in awe of its brilliance, it's not often you see class like this. a sort of cramped half pull shot / half drive from short of a length on the off side. whatever it is, it went down the throat of the wide mid on. 13/2
    2 awful defence from a player in awful form, playing the defence down the wrong line, outside edge, easy catch, Astle's world cup horror run continues 2/1
    25.1 and gone, NZ now in a worse position than Bangladesh, trying to flick across the line into the off stump,thin edge travels over the stumps and to the keeper 59/5
    10.3 NZ in anotehr universe compared to their form so far in this tournament, just trying to drive outside the off stump, tiny but clear edge to the keeper 22/3
    16.4 pushing at it, edging, straight to the 1st slip 31/4
    30.5 floating a lovely little catch down to the mid off, how generous, Lara runs around straight, easy catch, Dillon is overjoyed 75/6
    40.3 pulling down the leg side, just gloves it a little down the leg side, Jacobs reaping the rewards behind the stumps today 125/7
    48.1 flicking off the pads, Dillon gets 4, that was another unnecessary dismissal, like most of the lower order ones, harris playing straight to the square leg 156/10
    42.5 clap clap, another great moment in NZ cricket, he flicks off the pads, direct, and I mean direct, to Williams at forward square leg, easy catch off a quick travelling ball 130/8
    47.4 Jacobs' 5th catch of the day, short and wayward down the leg side, Larsen pulling, gloved to the keeper, poor effort 155/9
