Mpofu to Williamson, FOUR, short of a length with width outside off, Williamson stands tall and punches the ball in front of point, he's timed it well enough to beat the fielder's chase

Jarvis to Watling, FOUR, dropped! Watling pokes tentatively at one that pitches on a great length outside off, the edge flies between the keeper and first slip. Both Chakabva and Price don't attempt the catch, Jarvis looks on in anguish. Price was too wide at first slip and moved too slowly

Mpofu to Brownlie, FOUR, short and wide, an appetiser just before lunch, cut away for the first boundary in 15 overs. I guess that's enough time for a regulation Kiwi roof to be painted and dried

New Zealand 327/5   DG Brownlie 27* (78b 3x4)   CB Mpofu 27.2-8-78-1
