    1.4 Gibss's horror tournament comes to an end. He has hit a length ball straight down mid-off's throat. Disappointing shot to top up a disappointing tournament 7/1
    9.6 late-cut straight to short third man, and Mills throws well. He has caught North well short with a direct hit 62/2

    11.1 timber. Katich has shuffled too far. He just keeps going across to a straight delivery, allowing it free passage to clip the leg stump. Just like S Marsh and S Katich the other day, these two are gone in the same breath after slow starts. You can't eat up so many deliveries and then get out. Oh, that hit the thigh pad, and deflected back towards the stumps 67/3
    19.2 nearly a yorker, dug out into the leg side, and he wants a second, and here's a schoolboy error from the man who made a career out of eliminating mistakes. Collingwood takes it easy, doesn't slide the bat in, and his body is over the crease but only in the air when the bails come off. This habit he must have acquired from his former captain at Delhi Daredevils, Virender Sehwag 133/6

    17.1 full, straight, and Beaton swings and misses. The off stump goes for a walk 118/4
    19.1 and here's a wicket. Bates has begun both his last overs with a wicket. Low full toss, Ronchi doesn't get all of it, and holes out to long-on 132/5

    19.4 Bates has bated his way to 50 T20 wickets. Length ball, on the pads, but Mennie manages to reach only as far as Hira at deep midwicket 135/7

    9.1 lovely catch from Ronchi. Guptill is down the wicket, Beer tosses it up wide outside off, out of his reach. Guptill throws his arms at it, gets a thick edge, but Ronchi catches it well despite a big deflection 61/2
    3.5 edged and taken. Wild swing again. Short of a length, just outside off, and he clears the front leg and swings. All he manages is an edge through 12/1
    11.3 that's a huge wicket. This could mean the end of Auckland too. Mahmood jumps out of the crease, Beer bowls short, and he punches it towards extra cover where Gibbs takes a diving catch 71/4
    10.6 full, too full, which means Kitchen gets too close to this and doesn't get the needed elevation on this hit to midwicket. A nice low catch there by Coulter-Nile 68/3

    17.6 surely we are not getting a tie here? A really low-percentage shot here. Munro moves right across to try to slog a full ball over square leg. That's dead plumb as he misses 109/8
    12.3 short of a length, on off, bottom-edged towards the keeper, they want a single, but Luke Ronchi swoops on the ball and takes his time before underarming it to catch de Grandhomme short, who doesn't run in a straight line 75/5
    15.4 Beer is on fire here. Hopkins gives him the charge, and Beer fires in a yorker to squeeze under the bat and knock the off stump back 90/6
    17.2 Hira needed to hand the strike over to Munro, but he has handed it over to Mills. Walks right across the stumps to try and go over short fine leg. Mennie is straight and on a length, and knocks the middle stump over 108/7
