    4.3 good catch and England have another! Slower ball - offcutter from Curran, fullish on leg stump, but he doesn't pick it trying to hack it over square leg... outside edge skews up in the air and Saqib Mahmood snaffles the catch diving forward at third man 42/2
    3.5 great catch running back by Tom Curran! Knuckleball from Brown, length outside off, Guptill looks to smash him over the top but doesn't get much on it... it skews up, and looks like it's running away from Curran, but he takes a sharp catch sprinting back from wide mid-off and Brown gets his Worcestershire team-mate! 40/1
    7.5 oh wow, horrendous shot from Seifert and Parkinson has a wicket in his first over! Reverse-slog-sweep from Seifert, a la Stokes at Headingley, but he gets nowhere near it and it somehow manages to nutmeg him and trim leg stump. That's a dreadful bit of batting, but Parkinson won't mind at all 69/3
    14.5 holes out to long-on! De Grandhomme's fun is over, slower ball that he doesn't pick, tries to muscle it over long-on but doesn't strike it cleanly and Banton takes a simple catch on the fence 135/4
    17.4 big appeal, and gone! Length ball, fairly straight and Taylor doesn't get any bat on it and is struck on the back thigh pad. Mahmood goes up, and it's given. Neesham seemed to want him to review, but Taylor wasn't interested. 162/5
    18.6 bowled 'im! Little hint of reverse from Curran, shapes in from off stump, tails in and smashes into leg stump! Not quite a yorker, but a bit of nibble to deceive Neesham and New Zealand lose their sixth 171/6
    19.6 slower ball to finish, throws everything at it but can't connect. Santner tries to scamper through for a bye (which should happen every single time on the final ball of the first innings, but more on that another time) and Billings throws down the stumps 180/7

    2.5 cutter on the stumps, Banton attempts to ramp it... misses and is bowled! Tickner punches the air, New Zealand have the breakthrough! Just the right length to clip the leg bail as Banton went too far across, and that's the end of the England debutant 27/1
    10.2 full toss from Sodhi, swung away into the deep... but he's picked the man running in! Filthy ball, filthy shot and Malan is filthy with himself there, knowing he's gifted his wicket. Mistimed his slap out towards the midwicket boundary and Guptill wasn't going to miss that chance 90/2
    16.6 fullish, tries to go up and over... but picks out mid-off! Vince throws his head back in disgust, a soft dismissal just when England needed him to be the man to take them home. Flogged hard but it went at around head height straight to the NZ captain, giving Tickner a second wicket and leaving England in trouble 147/5
    14.6 goes again, slogged towards cow corner... but this time he picks out the man! Couldn't get underneath this one, fired in fuller and outside off and Munro took the catch smartly 139/3
    15.4 back of a length, squirting off the thigh pad as Billings comes down... but he's sent back and Munro hits directly with one-and-a-bit stumps to aim at! He put in the dive but Billings wasn't getting back there, left half a yard short by the underarm throw - nicely done to lift New Zealand further! 142/4
    17.5 dug in, slower delivery and Curran can't manufacture the power - spooned out to deep point! Another one bites Lockie's dust and this is looking grim for England now. New Zealand holding their nerve superbly at the death 149/7
    17.3 bowled 'im! Cranks it up to 144 clicks and beats an impetuous mow across the line... Two-ball duck for Gregory and England are really feeling the heat. Ferguson strikes just when his team needed him 148/6
