    11.4 what a way to go, Nicol was backing up with his bat in the wrong hand and had no chance to get back as Fulton drilled a straight drive into the stumps at the non-striker's end, de Grandhomme managed to get a fingertip on the ball before it cannoned into the stumps. Bowlers will say that is justice 58/2
    12.4 angled across Brownlie, wafts away from his body, Hopkins collects behind the stumps and Auckland go up as one, adamant that he has nicked it, the umpires choose to check upstairs, which they can do themselves in the playing conditions. Replays show a healthy deviation off the bat, Brownlie has to go for a duck as Canterbury lose three international batsmen in the space of seven balls 59/4
    33.3 Auckland have been smoking hot in the field, Hopkins' drop aside, and here Latham's innings is ended as Canterbury's last hope departs, it was full outside off and Latham attempted to go over the top, skied the drive high and looked to have cleared mid-off, de Grandhomme ran backwards and importantly side-on to keep an eye on the ball, dived one-handed behind him and plucked it before retaining control as he fell, an absolute screamer of a catch 131/9
    13.2 another former New Zealand batsman departs for Canterbury! Madness at the Eden Park Outer Oval, it was a half-volley on leg and Stewart fell over as he flicked uppishly, it looked to be going for four until Munro leapt like a salmon to take a stunning two-handed take to his right at square leg 60/5
