Southee to du Plessis, FOUR runs, four more, New Zealand continue to pay for their leg-stump line, Southee goes full down the pads in search of the yorker, and a fine tickle is all that is needed

4
Southee to du Plessis, FOUR runs, whoah, not something you see often, a misfield on the boundary by a New Zealander, du Plessis charges down the track and thumps the ball towards sweeper cover, Bracewell sprints to his right to try cut that off, he gets there in time but lets it through, two boundaries to end the over
36.5
4
Southee to du Plessis, FOUR runs, shortish ball is pulled towards wide long-on, not the most well-timed of shots, that had enough power and placement to find the rope

Southee to du Plessis, FOUR runs, another boundary to end the over, less than 100 needed now, low full toss flicked off the pads over midwicket
