View dismissal PG Fulton lbw b McCallan 83 160 110 9 0 75.45
38.1 Goddim! Full, flat, on the middle and off stump line, Fulton goes for a sweep. The bat meets air, the ball meets pad and it would have gone to hit middle. 172/5
View dismissal SP Fleming* c Porterfield b Rankin 10 26 11 1 0 90.90
5.4 Suddenly, against the run of play, Fleming falls. Full and wide, it was there to be hit but Fleming sliced it straight to point. 35/1
View dismissal HJH Marshall c Morgan b Langford-Smith 16 21 21 2 0 76.19
10.6 Morgan takes a beauty. At cover. It was full and outside off, Marshall tries to drive it over cover, mistimes and the ball bobs over Morgan. He backpedals, stretches his hands above his hand and holds on to it. The bowler is ecstatic. He does a little jig. 59/2
View dismissal SB Styris c †NJ O'Brien b Langford-Smith 10 25 15 1 0 66.66
16.3 Styris falls. Done in by the change of pace. Scrambled seam and it floated outside off stump. Styris is bit early into his drive and nicks it behind. Smith does his jig again. Rolls his fist over each other and takes them behind and does a chicken act. At least, that's what it appears to me. Got to ask him in the PC. 83/3
View dismissal CD McMillan c Johnston b McCallan 22 29 29 1 1 75.86
24.4 The salesman sells himself short. Mac gets Mac. Brain explosion. McMillan backed away from the stumps and tried to force a full-length delivery through the off side. No luck. Gets a outside edge and it goes straight to short third man. NZ wobbling here. 118/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c Morgan b White 20 78 48 0 0 41.66
40.4 Another one goes down! Ireland are having a fab day out there. Oram charges down, White fires it in on the middle stump line and Oram can't get under it, ends up drilling it straight to long-on. More naughty leprechaun jigs.. 181/6
View dismissal BB McCullum c Morgan b Johnston 47 49 37 2 1 127.02
49.4 But he is gone now. Done in by the change of pace. He goes for the cow corner, the ball balloons towards deep midwicket and he is caught. 260/8
View dismissal DL Vettori c †NJ O'Brien b White 5 6 7 0 0 71.42
42.3 huge appeal for a catch down leg side. Bucknor is impassive. They shout louder and slowly the fatal finger comes up. It was sliding down the leg side, Vettori attempts to sweep, he must have gloved it. Very good take from O'Brien who moved smartly to his right. New Zealand in trouble. Seven down. Irish fans must be chuffed. 189/7

View dismissal WTS Porterfield c Styris b Bond 11 32 22 0 0 50.00
7.2 Bond picks up his second wicket. Banged in short, it kicks up chest-high, Porterfield goes for a pull, but it was going away from him and climbed more than he expected. The top-edge takes the ball high over slips, Styris turns back from the slip, runs back to take it. 22/2
View dismissal JP Bray c †McCullum b Bond 1 7 5 0 0 20.00
1.6 Bond strikes. Lethal delivery. It pitched on a length, on the middle and off, shaped away off the seam and Bray has to play at it. He does. Pushes at it, inside the line and the ball kisses the outside edge and rushes to McCullum. 5/1
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †McCullum b Oram 15 46 37 2 0 40.54
12.5 Oram prises out Morgan. Probing line outside off stump, slightly short in length, Morgan shapes to cut but nicks it behind. Three down now and struggling. 35/3
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c Oram b Patel 30 109 75 2 0 40.00
32.3 Niall is gone. He can go in and explain to his brother about that run out. Tossed-up, on the middle stump line and Niall tried to slog-sweep it across the line, doesn't get under it and sends it straight to deep midwicket 125/5
View dismissal KJ O'Brien run out (Styris/Marshall) 49 67 45 2 3 108.88
28.4 Styris to NJ O'Brien, oh that's quite a mess. Two brothers involved in a run-out. If this had happened in the backyard ... Niall pushes to the off side and thinks of a single, Kevin responds and is too far down the track as Marshall swoops down to return the ball to Styris, the bowler. The bails are off and Kevin is well short. If mama 'O brien is watching, she wouldn't really be too impressed. Nial sold Kevin the dummy there 110/4
View dismissal DT Johnston* lbw b Patel 13 27 19 1 0 68.42
34.4 Done in by the pace. Patel fires that one in, lands outside off stump, turns in and Johnston is surprised by the pace. The bat comes down late and in an angle at that and he is caught in front. It would have taken out leg stump. 133/7
View dismissal AR White lbw b Vettori 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
33.3 trapped in front. Drifted in the air, from round the stumps, landed on the middle stump and slided in. White goes for a sweep shot, misses and is struck in front of middle and leg. It would have hit the leg. Taufel agrees. Up goes the index finger and White has to make the long walk back to the pavilion. 127/6
View dismissal PG Gillespie lbw b Vettori 2 8 8 0 0 25.00
35.5 Taufel agrees this time. Drifts in the air, lands on the middle stump line and straightens. Gillespie thrusts his left leg across and gets in a tangle as a result. He is unable to bring the bat around his front pad and is struck in front of the middle. Plumb. 133/8
View dismissal WK McCallan b Vettori 0 9 8 0 0 0.00
37.3 castled. McCallan goes down the track and yorks himself as Vettori pushed that one through quick. The ball goes under the bat and he must have heard the death rattle. Although it appeared that he didn't hear it as he was trying to get back into the crease. He saw the damage and walked back to the pavilion 134/9
D Langford-Smith not out 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
View dismissal WB Rankin lbw b Vettori 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
37.4 The bearded Vettori comes up with a yorker to wrap up a big win. Full, quick and on the middle and off stump line. It beat the hurried waft and rammed into the front boot. It would have pegged back the middle stump. NZ win by 129 runs.

Ricky has a query: "will Vettori be on a Hat-trick for the next NZ match, since he did not get to bowl a 3rd ball to get it in this match?"
Nope. It doesn't carry on to the next game.

This is Sriram Veera signing off. Coming up tomorrow: South Africa v West Indies. Hopefully, it will be a cracker of a contest. Join us then. 134/10
