    1.3 that is as plumb as they come, Guptill doesn't even bother reviewing. The umpire raised his finger even before the bowler could complete the appeal. This full delivery angles back in from wide of the crease, pitches outside off and comes back in to beat Guptill's inside edge as he plays down the wrong line. 5/1
    11.3 this is an outstanding catch at long-on. Flat hit, so much power on that but he got down low to pull off a stunner as it was descending on him. Munro looked to clear long-on but got a little too close to the pitch of this full and flat delivery. 91/2
    13.4 full, straight and he's beaten his across-the-line slog sweep. That's the end of that. The middle stump takes a walk. Typical Badree wicket. 118/3
    14.2 this is a full toss angling in from wide of the crease, Bruce is through with the swing but this hits him just above the flap on his left pad. The leg stump was visible at the point of contact so the line was never in doubt. The ball was descending on him so height wasn't in question either. Once there was no inside edge on that, he was a dead duck anyway. 120/4
    18.2 this is a full toss and he walks across and mows this straight to deep midwicket. Cramped for room, didn't get the timing either. Easy catch. 153/6
    17.1 the slower delivery has done the trick. He was backing away to swing but this dipping full toss came back in to cramp him for room and deflect off the pad onto the stumps. Kitchen was through with the swing way too early. 149/5

    18.5 has he taken that? Wow, tremendous reflexes. Freak catch. Just how did a 6 feet eight inch man get down so low on his followthrough to take that? Magical. It was hit hard too, so he had to react qucikly and he did so very well. 158/7

    2.5 and that's another one. Two in two for the debutant. Lures Walton into a drive with a full and wide delivery. Shapes away slightly as well and Walton has thrown his hands at it. Can't control his drive. Hits it in the air and Kitchen moves to his right to take a smart catch. The two debutants team up to send back the other opener 19/2
    2.4 oh, catch! What a stunning catch! Glenn Phillips with a stunner behind the stumps. Gayle shapes up for a pull off this short delivery. Has to fetch it from outside off and skews it in the air off the top edge. Phillips sprints back and has to make a dive at the last minute as he realises he isn't under it entirely yet. Those are so difficult to judge but he has made a superb late adjustment. Top stuff 19/1
    9.2 tries to repeat the act and telegraphs a charge down the track. Sodhi drags the length back and gets subtle turn and bounce. Fletcher can't put bat to ball and gets stumped 61/3
    10.5 he's pulled this from outside off and straight into the hands of midwicket. They're comitting hara-kiri, not for the first time on tour. This was a slower delivery, he was through with the stroke and simply got this off the toe-end. Hope's brief but painful stay is over. 67/5
    10.3 he's played this straight to backward point. Touch fuller outside off, he opened the bat face and just sliced it like the fielding coach would while giving catching practice at training. West Indies slide further 66/4
    14.4 they're getting a wicket almost every other delivery now. Again zero effort to get behind the line of the delivery. Stays way outside the line and just hangs the bat loosely looking for a run down to third man. Gets an outside edge that's taken brilliantly by Phillips diving to his right 94/7
    14.2 straight into the hands of long-on. That's the easiest bit of catching practice you could possibly give. He probably just formed the reverse cup and just closed his eyes as the ball sat nicely into his hands. Walks across and swipes horribly across the line. Comes straight down the throat of Bruce who doesn't move any part of his body apart from his hands 93/6

    15.4 another wicket gifted to New Zealand. Blindly comes down the track without sussing out the length. And there seems to be a distinctly strange intent as well as he looks for a gentle push after making all the effort to come down the track. The ball spins past the outside edge and Phillips does the rest. What a game he's having. Half-century and now two catches and two stumpings 103/8
    17.6 and finally he is caught. Southee persists with the short stuff. Just that instead of rushing the batsman for pace, he drags it back with a legcutter. Gets Taylor to drag a pull high in the air. Completely messes up his timing and he can only get it as far as the midwicket fielder 131/9
    18.6 full and straight and rapped on the pad. Badree reviews straightaway. Could have been an inside edge. Otherwise looked dead straight. It's a slower cutter. Pitches really full and sneaks from underneath the bat which hits the pitch and hits him dead in front of middle. Ball-tracking says hitting leg-stump 140/10
