    2.4 Jimmy Adams is some sort of electric fence at point. Another New Zealand side stays alive through its fielding. This is cut away fiercely, but Adams has dived to his unnatural side to pouch this 22/1
    9.1 and Bates has struck with his first ball back. Trego gives him the charge, makes room, and smashes this cover-drive, smack off the middle of the bat, but straight to Guptill at short extra cover. Lovely catch. Too close for comfort, was Guptill, when batsmen connect with their drives 54/3
    8.1 One of those trademark van der Merwe shots where he is looking at fine leg and hits to third man. Gives this an almighty thwack, and the outside edge lobs to short third. Auckland still alive, only just 52/2
    19.5 low full toss, driven to deep cover, they take risking the new batsman by going for the second here. The throw is not accurate but is quick enough to catch him short. Hildreth has played a good hand, but Somerset needs one more run here 125/6
    9.2 Bates has opened the gates here! Lovely offcutter here. Short of a length, middle and leg, and seams a way a touch. Compton wants to open the face on it, the edge is taken, and Bates is on a hat-trick 54/4
    11.5 Tom Martin strikes too. Auckland's aces are falling right here. Suppiah plays the big pull, this seems to be the slower ball, and the massive top edge is safely pouched in the mid-on region 64/5
