    24.5 Guptill's been run out! Maxwell scores a direct hit. Nicholls was hit on the pad and the ball rolled off it towards short cover, Guptill ran for the single but Nicholls wasn't responding. It was really too risky. Maxwell swooped on the ball from cover and hit the stumps at the bowler's end. Guptill short by a long way despite a full length dive. Nicholls was a little late in saying no but there was really no run there. 181/3
    10.5 bowled him! McCullum falls after kickstarting New Zealand's innings. Faulkner delivered a perfect yorker from around the wicket, McCullum stayed back and tried to drive it through the off side, instead of defending. He missed and Faulkner hit. Eden Park rises to applaud their captain as he leaves after his final international innings on this ground 79/1
    12.4 Williamson has fallen for a duck, very rarely does one get to type those words! He drove at a good length ball that stopped on him a touch, and ended up hitting it on the up and away from his body, there was a fielder at short cover and Shaun Marsh caught it 81/2
    35.2 that is poor shot selection, the length was not short enough to pull and Nicholls is hurried for time and he top edges the ball high in the air straight to Wade behind the stumps. He tried to drag it from outide off stump too. He's played a fine innings though 231/5
    29.3 he's timed his ball miserably and been caught just outside the inner circle at mid-off by Hastings. Elliott came forward and outside leg to loft inside out over cover. The ball pitched short of a length and he ended up toe-ending it tamely in the air, Hastings only had to move a little to his left to take the simple catch 205/4
    36.5 such a soft dismissal! New Zealand's wheels are coming off. Anderson timed the front foot drive well, hitting it on the up and firmly too, just that he hit it flat, in the air, and straight to Richardson, who barely had to move at cover 234/6
    44.4 bowled him! Ronchi's struggle is over. Hazlewood nails him with a yorker on off and middle stump. Ronchi swiped across the line and missed and his stumps took a beating 263/7

    47.4 that is a stunning reflex catch from Faulkner! Milne cleared his front foot and smashed the full ball hard and to Faulkner's left at shoulder height. Faulkner stuck his left hand out in his follow through and parried the ball up and caught it on the second try. He barely celebrates the dismissal, so nonchalant. Milne actually mis-timed it but it was still struck hard 290/8

    1.5 137km, edged and caught at second slip! Henry pitched on a good length around middle and off and got the ball to move just a little across the left-hander, Marsh prodded from his crease and was squared up as he did so, the outside edge flew quickly to Guptill who took a relatively simple catch to his right 10/1

    6.4 no fireworks! Warner has been given lbw, but will he review? He has a talk with George Bailey and he decides to go! That's too high, surely? Warner was in his crease as he tried to hit across the line and was struck flush on the front pad by a length ball angling into him, rushing him for time. His front foot was off the ground too. I'd love to see replays of that, I reckon it was too high. Both feet were off the ground and it hit him on top of the pad. Yes, replays show it would have missed the stumps. 39/3

    5.2 bowled him, off the inside edge, Henry has struck again! Smith drives off the front foot and away from his body at a good length ball that pitches well outside off, it barely moves in so he had to reach for it, the ball cannons into the stump off the inside edge of the bat. Henry has been New Zealand's best limited-overs bowler this summer 33/2
    7.6 Bailey gives Anderson a chance to make amends and this time he's been caught! That man Henry again, bowling fuller and on a middle stump line, Bailey flicks in the air off the front foot and hits it straight to midwicket, a much easier chance this time. 40/4
    8.1 and Maxwell has gone! Williamson grabs a stunner at extra cover! He lofted the ball towards extra cover with no timing, Williamson moved to his left from mid-off, the ball was almost lobbing over his head when he jumped up with left-hand outstretched above his head and caught it as it began to drop behind him. He was airborne as he caught it 40/5
    8.6 and Australia lose a sixth inside ten overs! Incredible stuff. Boult hits a great length around leg and middle and takes the ball away from the right-hander, Marsh is squared up in his crease as he prods away from his body and he nicks through to McCullum at second slip 41/6
    20.1 #Edenparksotiny, but Wade has holed out in the deep! Anderson pitched short of a length and angled it across the left-hander, Wade got on the front foot and heaved across the line, hitting it more high than far, Nicholls settled under the catch on the cow corner boundary 120/7

    21.1 and he's bowled Faulkner! That was a rash shot, Faulkner stepped out of his crease and swiped across the line at a length ball with a cross bat, Milne hit the top of off stump. Only two more to take for New Zealand. That ball cut into the right-hander just enough to beat the bat 121/8
    24.2 two in two for Santner and it's all done and dusted at Eden Park! Hastings slogs at a slow one and mis-hits it towards long-on, Guptill runs in and slides to take a well-judged catch. Josh Hazlewood is stranded at the other end and is yet to open his account in ODI cricket after playing 15 matches 148/10
    24.1 and he strikes first ball! Richardson backs away towards leg and slogs at a slow one outside off, he lofts it tamely in the air off the bottom of the bat and Williamson runs from mid-off to extra cover to take the catch 148/9
