    6.5 another one. Very full delivery outside off, Ravindra goes for an exuberant drive but gets a thick outside edge which is well taken by second slip in front of his face. NZ tottering now 5/3
    2.1 gone! Lovely bowling. Really good catch. Fullish delivery, zoning in on that off bail. Swerves away just a touch to take the outside edge of a prodding Phillips. The keeper is wrong-footed but moves smartly to his right to hold onto the catch. Great start for India 4/1
    6.4 and there it is. The pressure has released in the form of another wicket. Short delivery on off, Clarkson comes down to try and swipe over the leg side but the ball hustles onto him and he can only spoon it up for the keeper to take. Not very clever batting, but great bowling from Avesh 4/2
    10.2 another one goes. Avesh takes another. Short delivery on off, Finnie pokes and prods only for the ball to take the outside edge. Second slip takes another as NZ sink further. 16/4

    17.4 bowled im this time. This one skids on and goes on with the arm to take the off stump. Poor shot, played for a bit of turn but he hasn't spun one throughout the over. Goes through bat and pad to clatter into the stumps 65/5

    21.2 massive slog and Leopard goes. Surely, with that the hopes of NZ. Flat delivery on middle, a massive slog from Leopard goes nowhere and clatters into the stumps. No spin again 80/7
    18.5 bowled im, another one goes. The googly this time, flat delivery down leg. The batsman walks across the crease too much and the leg stump is disturbed. Not great batting of spin this. 72/6
    29.5 tossed up outside off, seems to get caught in two minds between driving along the ground and trying to loft over cover, and ends up offering him the simplest of catches 133/9
    23.3 that was out. Looked plumb. Flat on middle, the ball spins a touch and beats the outside edge only to hit the back pad right in front of off and middle. Out on all counts and NZ are eight down 88/8
    31.3 down the track, and that is that. Lomror holds this back a bit, and he's nowhere near the pitch of it as he looks to blast that out of the ground. Gets a lot of height on it but not much distance as it skews up off the outside half of the bat, and the bowler calls for it, runs back towards the mid-off region, and takes it over his head while falling backwards. Finishes with a five-for to go with his 45 138/10
