    7.1 oh, he's holed out - short of a length and Guptil goes on the pull but picks out Maxwell at long-on who runs around the boundary and takes a good, low catch while on the move. Smartly pouched 61/1
    8.2 Kane's gone! Williamson stepped to leg and tried to smash it for six over the top, but miscues a skier to Agar - Agar! - who takes it comfortably 66/2
    13.6 got him! Top, top class from Marsh - he's frustrated Munro for an over and an impetuous, angry, ill-advised front-footed pull picks out deep midwicket who clings on 97/4
    10.2 Maxwell's done it again! Anderson's down the pitch, tries to clear long-off but Agar is hovering. He's skied this miles, and Agar's in position and takes it comfortably...on his knees, hands in front of his face, as though imploring the ball into his palm 76/3
    16.4 he's gone for it again but straight to Marsh at midwicket! Clever bowling from Watson there, actually, as he held it back just a touch 117/5

    18.5 mistimes this completely, trying to hit over midwicket but finds Maxwell coming in from deep midwicket, who's about as safe a pair of hands as you can find, and he takes a smart, athletic take low by his laces 133/6
    19.4 outside off, he carves it out to deep extra cover boundary for...one? Or two. Two, but it's Maxwell patrolling the boundary and sends in a bullet throw - what a throw! And he looks to be short 140/7

    5.2 Watto's fallen, hook, line and sinker - I think that may have been a slower ball, and he's driven it straight to mid-off 44/1
    6.4 superb bowling. He gave this more flight, a tough wider too, luring Smith into dancing down the pitch, it gripped and spun away and the bails were whipped off 51/2
    10.1 he's holed out! Warner's gone for a huge pull and picked out deep midwicket who barely has to move! 66/4
    15.1 Maxwell's on the drive, lofting it, but he's skied it to Williamson at deep extra cover! No chance he'll drop that and he doesn't 100/5
    18.1 outside off but a slower ball, and Marsh has misread it, skying a pull straight down Milne's throat at long-on - and that's a huge, huge wicket! 121/6
    18.5 catch - great catch! Agar understandably goes for a pull on the front foot, attempting to heave it over midwicket for six, but picks out Taylor who - running about 15 or so yards - takes a neat, low catch 123/7
    19.1 goddim! Guptil takes a fine catch in the deep as Faulkner, The Finisher, tries to clobber this across the line into the midwicket stand but picks out Guptil who has huge, safe buckets, scooping it up on the run 124/8
    19.5 bowled him! Inside edge as NCN tries to carve this somewhere, anywhere, but can only find his stumps 132/9
