    19.5 Zampa has troubled Guptill today and now he's got him! He drifted the legbreak to pitch outside leg stump and Guptill was always in trouble trying to sweep that without clearing his front foot, he had to reach for that and was in an awkward position - cramped for room - to play it, he ended up top edging tamely to short fine leg, where Hastings took an easy catch 131/3
    9.3 McCullum's final innings is over! And he gets a massive cheer from the Seddon Park crowd, they are rising to their feet to clap off their captain. That went high in the air and Hastings caught it superbly. McCullum had charged and slogged but ended up slicing the ball high in the air over the bowler's head. It was surely Maxwell's catch? He only had to move a little to his right from mid-off. But Hastings had moved quickly to the ball from mid-on and at the last moment he took a look at Maxwell, who was not going for the catch, so Hastings stuck out his large hands and the ball dropped in 84/1
    18.2 bowled him! Williamson has been tied down by the line Australia have been bowling to him, they have been outside off stump on a good length most of the time, cutting off his leg side. Now Williamson gets a slightly wide one but the length is good outside off, he reaches to cut the ball without moving his feet - he usually moves back and across so smoothly - and bottom edges on to his stumps. That ball actually seamed into the right-hander to hit the bottom edge 123/2
    28.4 make that four! Nicholls steps forward and plays a loose drive away from his body at a good length ball outside off, Smith is waiting at first slip. A really loose shot and another soft dismissal. New Zealand in danger of being derailed again after a strong start 171/4
    43.2 two in two for Marsh, what a series he is having! Maxwell runs in from the deep square leg boundary and dives to take the catch. The ball was dipping sharply as he caught it. Elliott had got down on one knee outside off to play a slog-sweep of sorts, he timed it well but hit it in the air and not high or far enough 237/7
    40.3 Anderson has picked out Khawaja at long on! He stepped out to clear the straight boundary and was cramped for room a little by the line angling into him from around the wicket. He timed the shot well because it travelled really quickly to Khawaja, but he did not hit it high enough. Khawaja moved to his left to catch it 223/5
    43.1 Ronchi's struggles continue, he's mis-timed this one straight to long-on, where Boland takes an easy catch. The length was good and the line angling into middle stump, Ronchi swung across the line and mis-timed it completely 237/6
    45.2 bowled him! Bracewell is bowled between bat and pad as he moves forward to drive at a good length slower ball that swings into him a fair bit. Hastings hits middle and leg stump. Australia have got the ball hooping in the last few overs. New Zealand in danger of being bowled out with so many overs to go 246/9
    44.3 an appeal for lbw and he has been given this time! Milne has a word with Bracewell and is walking off. That was missing leg stump surely? The full ball swung sharply into the right-hander and hit the boot before ricocheting on to the bat. He should have reviewed that, it was sliding past leg stump. 246/8

    45.3 and it's all over! Hastings ends the innings with 27 balls to go! He bowls a swinging yorker at the No. 11 Sodhi, who jams his bat down on it. He manages to get some bat on it but not enough to prevent the ball from squeaking through and rolling on to his stumps 246/10

    11.2 caught behind! Khawaja stays on his crease with feet rather stationary and drives loosely away from his body at a length ball that seams away from him, a thick edge and Ronchi dives to his left to take the catch, rather like how Nicholls got out 75/2
    4.6 he's been caught at cover! the ball was nothing special, short of a length and angling into him, Warner was on the back foot to punch over cover but the ball stopped on him a bit and he ended up spooning it straight to Elliott 39/1
    18.4 lbw! Smith does not like the decision and he is going to have a word with Bailey. They are reviewing this one. Smith was a long way on the front foot, down on one knee as he tried to sweep that ball. There was no edge and that ball is going straight on to hit the stumps 94/3

    29.5 bowled him! Marsh has been hitting it like a dream but Bailey pokes tentatively at a short of a length ball that nips into him from outside off and gets an inside edge on to his stumps. Is there life in this New Zealand defence? 50 wickets for Henry at an average of 22. He's got there in his 23rd game, behind only Ajantha Mendis 153/5
    18.6 Sodhi has broken open this game! Maxwell pushes with hard hands away from his body at a legbreak pitched on a good length outside off, thick outside edge caught by McCullum at first slip 94/4

    33.4 Henry thinks that ball has come straight off the boot and back to him, he half appeals for a catch. And that should be enough for an appeal and now the umpires are talking to each other. Henry bowled one right in the blockhole and Marsh jammed his bat down on it. I think that was hit into the ground and the boot. But Henry thought it was right off the boot and after ages the umpires decide to go to the third umpire. And would you believe it, that has gone right off the inside edge right on to the toe of the boot and back to Henry, who got down low in his follow through to take the catch, Marsh is out and Seddon Park explodes in a huge cheer. What a stroke of luck for New Zealand. 164/6
    39.6 short ball, pulled straight at Guptill on the edge of the circle at midwicket! Actually that was not straight at him, he had to take a few quick steps to his left and dive to catch it. Wade hit that firmly but placed it i the vicinity of one of the most agile catchers in the game 184/8
    38.1 the Hairy Javelin has caught it at deep square leg, running in from the boundary! Anderson peppered Hastings with another bouncer, it got big on him as he tried to hook, dragging the ball against the angle across him from over the wicket, the top edge was never going to clear the boundary and Elliott ran it and judged it well enough. New Zealand edge ahead in the chase! 179/7
    40.5 edged and this time McCullum dives forward at first slip to catch it close to the ground! Zampa pushes from his crease away from his body at a good length ball that seams across him, the last time it fell short to McCullum's left, this time he dives forward to catch it before the ball can hit the grass! 184/9

    43.4 that's the game! A direct hit from point has run out Boland and the Kiwis rush towards Nicholls the fielder at point! Boland backed away towards leg to steer the ball towards point and ran, Nicholls moved quickly to his right, fielded cleanly and nailed the stumps with a swift throw, Boland was a couple of feet short 191/10
