View dismissal MJ Guptill c Gambhir b Ojha 53 102 79 8 0 67.08
23.3 55.4 mph, Ojha has struck , this man is extremely underrated I tell you, tosses it up again, NZ had to be careful which balls to attack if they were going to be aggressive, Guptill goes after this full one, and ends up mishitting it straight to midwicket, came off the inner part of the bat, probably did not turn 89/3
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Khan 0 4 5 0 0 0.00
1.5 Zaheer Khan strikes, and roars, caught plumb in front is McCullum, good length again, pitching middle, McCullum pushes outside the line for the angle across him, the ball strikes him in front of off and middle, the umpire nods his head immediately 0/1
View dismissal KS Williamson lbw b Ojha 17 74 44 2 0 38.63
18.1 that has got to be close, and umpire Davis upholds the appeal, spin striking after NZ had got through the first hour, tossed up ball sliding in with the angle, KW pushing well outside the line for the straightening one, caught in front, did not seem to be too much doubt with the line, but he was well forward, and was struck on the back thigh pad as he pressed forward, bounce could have been a factor, in hindsight 63/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* lbw b Ojha 113 177 127 16 2 88.97
63.1 54.8 mph, Ojha has got Taylor, after a long imploring appeal, umpire Gould gives it, quite plumb as replays show, went for the sweep to a tossed up fullish one, missed, and was hit in front of middle 246/6
View dismissal DR Flynn lbw b Ashwin 33 74 53 6 0 62.26
42.2 51.2 mph, and he's fallen for the third time this series to the sweep, and to Ashwin, tossed up offbreak. Flynn wants to sweep, misses, the ball straightens on middle and off, and strikes him on the thigh pad, looked like hitting off, credit to Ashwin for flighting the ball 196/4
View dismissal JEC Franklin c Raina b Ojha 8 36 35 1 0 22.85
51.4 51.3 mph, oh dear me, what has Franklin done? he has hit a full toss to midwicket, tossed up delivery, it dipped on leg stump, Franklin leaned to put it away but ended up working it to midwicket's left, where Raina dived and pulled off a sharp catch 215/5
View dismissal CFK van Wyk c Raina b Khan 71 133 100 9 0 71.00
85.6 85.8 mph, Raina takes a sharp diving catch at second slip, and Zaheer roars, van Wyk tried another of those dabs that have worked so well for him, but this time he ended up guiding the back of a length ball close to Raina, who went down to his right to snap up the low take, that delivery came in slightly off the pitch, probably why he ended up guiding it closer to Raina 345/7
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell run out (Khan) 43 101 79 6 0 54.43
87.6 Khan to Southee, oh dear, how unfortunate is that, Bracewell has been run out backing up, the sadder part for him is that Zaheer was not even trying to do that, he was just trying to field a forcing push from Southee, but the ball burst through his fingers and crashed into the stumps, catching Bracewell well short 353/8
View dismissal TG Southee lbw b Ojha 14 20 11 2 1 127.27
90.1 48.9 mph, that is plumb, Ojha gets one to straighten appreciably on the stumps, and picks up his fifth wicket, tossed up, good length, pitches middle and leg, and changes direction alarmingly to strike the back pad flap in front of middle and off even as Southee was pressing forward 365/10
View dismissal JS Patel c Gambhir b Yadav 0 1 2 0 0 0.00

View dismissal G Gambhir b Southee 2 17 12 0 0 16.66
3.4 61.7 mph, there is no doubt about this one, and Gautam Gambhir's poor run in Tests continues, he was probably set up by those deliveries leaving him with the angle outside off, this one was much straighter, straightened in a touch as well, Gautam shouldered arms again, to his horror, it clipped the off bail 5/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Flynn b Bracewell 43 100 60 8 0 71.66
21.4 82.6 mph, they have the big wicket, Sehwag could not keep the flick down, and Flynn snaps up a sharp catch high to his right, full again, into the pads again, Sehwag met the ball early this time, well in front of the pads, and played the shot much in front of square, and Flynn was waiting there, at a square shortish midwicket, they check for the no-ball, but Bracewell is just about okay 67/3
View dismissal CA Pujara c Boult b Southee 9 30 17 1 0 52.94
9.6 61.9 mph, and just as I say it, the hook consumes Pujara, he will learn as he goes on to duck the bouncers at Test level, Southee digs it in around chest height, Pujara falling away a bit as he goes for the hook, the ball sails up for some time, before fine leg runs around to settle under it 27/2

23.3 85.3 mph, wow, Bracewell has gone through the gate, he has been attacking the stumps mostly, pitched up, Sachin leaves gap between bat swing and pad, and Bracewell bursts through to strike middle, he was probably looking to hit it towards mid-on 80/4
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Southee 103 284 193 14 1 53.36
83.3 84.4 mph, that has got to be out, that is a shocker of a misjudgment from Virat, padding up to a good length ball angled in, off you go for that indiscretion, had probably got used to that widish line from Southee, who bends it in this time, also came in a bit after pitching, was ending around off stump, Virat's pad was already thrust outside off and he had shouldered his arms, plumb 301/6
View dismissal SK Raina c †van Wyk b Southee 55 116 90 9 1 61.11
50.3 80.8 mph, you can be strangled down the leg side once, but in consecutive innings? Raina just has, and is walking back in disappointment, Southee angles it down the leg side, Raina tries to tickle it fine, keeper gets in the dive to pouch it, given right away by umpire Gould, off the bat alright 179/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† lbw b Southee 62 170 94 8 2 65.95
85.5 89.7 mph, super stuff from Southee, 50 Test wickets brought up with his fifth strike of the innings, the incoming delivery it is that gets Dhoni, after it got Virat, playing from the crease, trying to work it away, gets an inside edge, but before that the ball has brushed the pad, above the knee roll, looked like hitting leg 312/7
