    0.3 slapped straight to cover and if this task was difficult for Bangladesh already, it's got even harder now. A back of a length ball outside off, Tamin didn't move his feet out to it, went to cut and got it off the toe straight to the fielder at shoulder height for an easy catch 0/1
    6.4 big swing across the line and given out lbw. Stood in the crease and tried to swing it to leg but missed completely and got hit in line, only doubt was height but Nigel Long though it wasn't high enough, probably gave it out for the shot, should have done anyway, it was appalling 37/4
    2.5 tries to go off side again but chips it to cover point. Undone by a slower ball from around the wicket, he again gave himself some room outside off but was reaching for the ball angled in towards middle stump, was there too soon and it came off low on the bat and chipped to the fielder diving forward in the covers 19/2
    4.4 big shot into the leg side but not enough on it and caught at deep midwicket by Kane Williamson running back, another smart catch from Williamson, had to judge that carefully, running back and around, held it well. Rahim tried to pick up a length ball from around off stump and didn't get hold of it properly 33/3
    14.2 middle and leg line, slapped straight to long on. Not a bad strike but simply didn't get enough on it and it flies straight to the fielder who claimed it at shoulder height with two hands 87/5
    17.3 good strike down to long and a smart catch from Guptill that was travelling and could nearly have made him skip over the rope but it was very well held, powerfully struck but didn't get it wide of the fielder. Guptill leapt up and took it two handed above his head 115/6
    not out
    18.2 stepped back and then forward and then chips a back of a length ball straight to short third man, didn't get anywhere near the required distance on that, simple catch for Franklin. Tried to ramp it over him but the contact was poor 123/7
    19.1 length ball on off stump, chipped into the covers and extra cover takes it coming to his right, sliding and grabbing with two hands, easy chance well caught and a third wicket for Southee, Sunny trying to go over the off side and failing 128/8
