    36.5 good length ball on off stump swinging into Vincent, he tries to flick but the ball beats him and hits the pad before going on to hit the stumps, Tait gets his reward for an outstanding spell, he's bowled at a terrific pace all day and with much more control 188/3
    2.5 Lee strikes! Short of a length ball on off stump, angling away from Fleming who drives on the up, he can't keep the drive along the ground and ends up hitting it straight to Hussey at mid-off 12/1
    31.3 LBW! The sweep does Fulton in. Clarke pitches that just outside off stump, Fulton goes down on one knee and tries to sweep, he misses and the ball hits him just in line of off stump, replays show that the ball would have hit middle and off stump 163/2
    41.3 bowled him! Clarke bowls that fast and a fraction shorter on off stump, Taylor makes a little bit of room and tries to play the slog sweep, he misses and Clarke hits 212/4
    47.6 full toss on middle and leg stump, Styris hits it well off his pads but picks out Hussey at deep midwicket, Hussey takes a relatively simple catch and New Zealand are six down 269/6
    44.3 caught at deep midwicket! Huge huge wicket for Australia, Lee banged it in short and Oram pulled it powerfully, that man Hodge again covers good ground and dives low to his left to take a sharp catch, he's delighted and the Aussies run to mob him, they know the importance of that wicket 233/5
    49.1 outstanding yorker, right up there in the blockhole, McCullum tries to hit it down the ground and the ball squeezes under his bat and rattles leg stump 275/7

    10.6 bowled him! Franklin jumps in joy as Gilchrist misses a heave over midwicket and gets a thick inside edge on to his stumps, rash shot that because he tried to fetch that from outside off stump 56/1
    12.6 dropped a fraction short and Hayden pulls and pulls hard, he hit that flat and straight down Taylor's throat at deep midwicket, he hardly had to move and completes an easy catch 65/2
    46.1 caught in the deep! Ponting slams it down the ground to long-off, he hit that right out of the screws, Vincent sprinted in from the fence, dived forward and took an excellent low catch 266/4
    22.4 caught behind! Clarke reaches out for a very wide ball and tries to cut, he should have left that for it would have most certainly been wide, he gets the toe end of the bat on it and McCullum takes a sharp catch 112/3

    47.4 Hussey is run-out, Hussey drove that into the deep cover region, he called for the second and took off from the non-striker's end, Hodge sent him back, the throw was flat and powerful from Vincent in the deep and Oram broke the stumps with Hussey just short 279/5
