Jarvis to McCullum, OUT, Bowled him! McCullum has played on. The length was short and the line was outside off stump, McCullum wanted to pull it and in trying to drag the ball towards the leg side from wide outside off, he got a bottom edge on to his stumps. He has thrown away an opportunity to score big on a flat batting pitch

BB McCullum b Jarvis 14 (44m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.85

New Zealand 40/1   MJ Guptill 20* (38b 3x4)   KM Jarvis 5.4-1-18-1

Price to Williamson, OUT, that is a freakish run-out. Williamson had come out of his crease to push the ball back at Price who picked up with his left hand and threw the ball back at the batsman's end. Williamson tried to evade the ball at the same time as he took a stride back to make his crease. His stride wasn't long enough and his boot was on the line when Chakabva broke the stumps. What an odd dismissal. Williamson should have tried to slide his bat in instead of taking a long backward step.

KS Williamson run out 49 (101m 92b 6x4 0x6) SR: 53.26

New Zealand 115/2   MJ Guptill 46* (107b 4x4 1x6)   RW Price 9.3-2-28-0

Masakadza to Guptill, OUT, caught at midwicket, would you believe it! Masakadza pitched the ball in the middle of the pitch and it sat up for Guptill to smash anywhere. He went back and pulled it flat but hit it straight to Taibu in the circle. A fortunate wicket for Zimbabwe

MJ Guptill c Taibu b Masakadza 109 (323m 236b 11x4 2x6) SR: 46.18

New Zealand 247/3   LRPL Taylor 65* (136b 8x4)   H Masakadza 5.4-2-9-1

Ncube to Taylor, OUT, what a gift from Taylor. Ncube will take it. It is his maiden Test wicket, and he dives in celebration like a footballer would after scoring a goal. This is a wide half-volley, if he was playing snooker, he would need the "rest cue" to reach it. Taylor, though, goes after it, and the best he manages after reaching out is an edge

LRPL Taylor c †Chakabva b Ncube 76 (227m 165b 9x4 0x6) SR: 46.06

New Zealand 275/4   BJ Watling 16* (32b 3x4)   N Ncube 16.5-2-50-1

Mpofu to Watling, OUT, Lovely delivery, lovely catch. This pitch, a sleeping beauty, stuns you once in a while. Short of a length, outside off, he is shaping to cut at it, but it jumps off and nips back in. The ball hits the bat rather than the bat hit ball. Then Chakabva, who has been wrong-foooted, changes direction and dives to his right to catch him

BJ Watling c †Chakabva b Mpofu 39 (136m 96b 5x4 0x6) SR: 40.62

New Zealand 320/5   DG Brownlie 20* (64b 2x4)   CB Mpofu 26-7-72-1

Price to Brownlie, OUT, Price has frustrated Brownlie into playing this slow-sweep. After three dots, Brownlie clears the front leg to try and hit a length ball over midwicket. He is not close enough to cover the turn, the ball turns sharply, takes a thick edge to Taylor at slip. Price is thrilled

DG Brownlie c Taylor b Price 63 (154m 133b 7x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

New Zealand 401/6   DL Vettori 36* (44b 5x4 1x6)   RW Price 36.4-4-107-1

Mpofu to Vettori, OUT, Vettori is gone. Zimbabwe have broken through both the men who were scoring quick. Another offcutter from Mpofu. length ball outside off, Vettori moves across, then looks to flick this to leg. The movement takes the leading edge, and is taken by Taylor at first slip

DL Vettori c Taylor b Mpofu 40 (89m 58b 5x4 1x6) SR: 68.96

New Zealand 407/7   RA Young 2* (17b)   CB Mpofu 30.5-9-81-2

Mpofu to Bracewell, OUT, Lovely sight for a fast bowler. To break through a defensive shot and send a stump cartwheeling. And that's a duck on debut for Bracewell. He presses forward to defend this, the length ball pitches just outside off, nips back in, and through the gate. Mpofu and Price get into their third heel-to-heel celebration of the day

DAJ Bracewell b Mpofu 0 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 407/8   RA Young 2* (23b)   CB Mpofu 31.1-9-81-3

Mpofu to Patel, OUT, there it is. Get ready for Marto. Patel does the honourable thing by lobbing this slower ball to cover. Just couldn't check the shot well enough after being deceived by the change of pace. Price and Mpofu do The Dance again

JS Patel c Mawoyo b Mpofu 12 (18m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 70.58

New Zealand 425/9   RA Young 8* (34b 1x4)   CB Mpofu 33.5-10-92-4

Price to Martin, OUT, Oh cruelty. Quicker, flatter, doesn't turn much, stays low, and squeezes under the bat of the great man. Martin tucks the bat under his arm and walks off. That's duck No. 30

CS Martin b Price 0 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 426/10   RA Young 9* (35b 1x4)   RW Price 42.3-7-118-2
