Kleinveldt to Nicol, OUT, and Kleinveldt strikes first ball, Nicol looking to step out and have a go for the third time, and Kleinveldt's bounce off a good length defeats him, de Kock snaps up the edge

New Zealand 19/2   BB McCullum 6* (6b 1x4)   DW Steyn 2-0-9-1

4.5

Kleinveldt to BB McCullum, OUT, got the big one, a few tight deliveries was all it needed, short of a length once again from Kleinveldt, into the pads, McCullum swivels and swipes hard at it, top edge cannot evade the backpedalling short fine leg

BB McCullum c Steyn b Kleinveldt 6 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

New Zealand 19/3   JEC Franklin 0* (0b)   RK Kleinveldt 1.5-0-5-2

McLaren to Franklin, OUT, another one goes, short of a length ball, attempted hook edged through to the wicketkeeper, replays show it came off the shoulder, could have brushed the glove, Franklin had a look at his shoulder before departing

New Zealand 27/4   C Munro 8* (6b 2x4)   R McLaren 1.2-0-5-1

7.3

Morris to Anderson, OUT, oh boy, coming apart for New Zealand now, standing in the crease and swatting a bouncing good length delivery straight to mid off, Morris gets his first international wicket, ball hit the bat close to the top

CJ Anderson c Levi b Morris 5 (6m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 34/5   C Munro 10* (8b 2x4)   CH Morris 1.3-0-9-1

8.5

Peterson to NL McCullum, OUT, this angled in even more, quite harmlessly and slowly it appeared at first, but Nathan backed away and went for the pull, missed, and was bowled, sigh, in his defence, the ball kept a tad low

NL McCullum b Peterson 1 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

New Zealand 36/6   C Munro 10* (9b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 0.5-0-0-1

10.4

Peterson to Neesham, OUT, chopped on, one of the last things New Zealand needed, made room for the cut, wasn't enough of it in the end, stays a touch low too, and he loses a bail

JDS Neesham b Peterson 10 (8m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

New Zealand 54/7   C Munro 18* (13b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 1.4-0-4-2

11.6

Morris to Munro, OUT, sigh^infinity, they refuse to learn, opens up and swings at a slowish good length ball, vertical top edge comes down to the bowler

C Munro c & b Morris 23 (34m 18b 4x4 0x6) SR: 127.77

New Zealand 60/8   DAJ Bracewell 1* (3b)   CH Morris 3-0-17-2

New Zealand 81/9   DAJ Bracewell 17* (21b 3x4)   DW Steyn 2.1-0-9-2

18.2

Kleinveldt to McClenaghan, OUT, this is a proper catch now, and the last NZ wicket falls to a botched pull off a good length delivery as well, straight to midwicket

MJ McClenaghan c Peterson b Kleinveldt 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 86/10   DAJ Bracewell 21* (25b 3x4)   RK Kleinveldt 3.2-1-18-3
