    47.4 poor Joe Burns. He has battled and battled to stay not out when the winning runs are scored, but now that they are trying to hit out to finish it before lunch he has gone out slogging. After clearing mid-off earlier, he looks to go over mid-on, misses, and is bowled. Walks off to a big applause 179/3
    12.1 got him first up. Given not-out on the field for a catch to the keeper down the leg side, New Zealand review it, and they have reviewed it well. Warner, who shakes his head, you can tell he is out from the way he is moving the moment this has been reviewed. This is short of a length, into the hip from round the wicket, he looks to work it fine, and has gloved it. The umpire thinks it has come off the hip, but the gloves are far from the hip, and that is the only thing that touches the ball 49/1
    36.3 Southee finally gets a wicket. After eight straight dots at Khawaja. This is a length ball outside off, angling away. Khawaja plays with a bat half-horizontal and half-vertical. And away from the body. There is some extra bounce too to take the edge through to McCullum at first slip 113/2
