    4.3 and out of nowhere, McIntosh departs, inside edges a cut to a delivery which cut back in and kept low, which was the key, Latham took the catch easily as McIntosh stares accusingly at the wicket 20/1
    11 unwiedly stroke brings about Kitchen's downfall, shortish again but wider of off and stuck in the pitch a bit, ended up trying to tennis forehand it through point and got a thin snick which Latham took behind the stumps with the reverse cup 61/2

    17.1 superb one-handed take from Latham diving in front of first slip as the captain's decision to bring himself back on reaps immediate dividends, it was a leg-cutter which moved away from the right-hander after pitching on off and induced a thick edge 95/3
    19.2 Munro departs for a breezy 21 as he tries to deposit Ellis into the Lounge once more, doesn't get hold of it and Henry runs around and takes a good diving catch at long-off 118/4
    20.5 another wicket goes down as Auckland try to finish this in a flurry, de Grandhomme looks to go over long-on, skies a leading edge which swirls down to third man, Bennett clings on 120/5
    22.4 superb catch from Peter Fulton! He is loving his time in Auckland, this was angled across the right-hander outside off, Grobbelaar felt for it and edged, Fulton at first slip got down low to his left and plucked a one-handed slip catch with ease 129/6
    24.2 well well, another wicket and can Canterbury conjure something out of nothing here? It was good length around off, Mills went for a big heave and dragged it onto the base of middle stump 131/7
