TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.20, 91 Mins)184/5
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Martin Guptill, 0.3 ov), 2-11 (Tim Seifert, 2.2 ov), 3-19 (Kane Williamson, 3.6 ov), 4-93 (Glenn Phillips, 12.2 ov), 5-140 (James Neesham, 16.5 ov)
0.3 to MJ Guptill, got him! Guptill's woes continue. Full at off stump, brings the drive this time, it skews off a thick outside half of the part and it's a regulation catch at backward point. 0/1
3.6 to KS Williamson, bottom edge! This start gets better and better for Australia. Another short-of-a-length delivery, Williamson trying a repeat shot, this might have been more of a cutter, takes a thin bottom edge that just carries to Wade. 19/3
2.2 to TL Seifert, through him! That's a beauty. A rapid yorker goes under the bat and takes the base of off stump. Almost as though Seifert played over it. 11/2
16.5 to JDS Neesham, caught behind! This nipped away! 137kph, fuller length wide of off, Neesham leaned back to thrash a drive, it just nipped away and feathered a nick to the keeper Wade. Easy catch. 140/5
12.2 to GD Phillips, skied straight up to cover and Marsh holds on! A slower ball gets him. Cutter angled into leg, he loses his shape trying to launch this over wide long on, he sliced it straight up off a leading edge, it went a long way in the air, Marsh ran in from cover and took a good catch. Never easy when they go that high. 93/4

TOTAL17.3 Ov (RR: 7.48, 87 Mins)131
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Aaron Finch, 0.5 ov), 2-8 (Josh Philippe, 1.5 ov), 3-16 (Matthew Wade, 3.2 ov), 4-19 (Glenn Maxwell, 4.2 ov), 5-56 (Marcus Stoinis, 8.5 ov), 6-98 (Mitchell Marsh, 12.5 ov), 7-99 (Daniel Sams, 13.2 ov), 8-99 (Ashton Agar, 13.4 ov), 9-108 (Kane Richardson, 15.2 ov), 10-131 (Jhye Richardson, 17.3 ov)
0.5 to AJ Finch, taken at point! This came out of the middle from Finch, but didn't keep it down. Driving on the up outside off, nicely taken by the man of the moment Devon Conway. 3/1
4.2 to GJ Maxwell, edged, sharp catch at second slip! Australia falling apart under the Christchurch lights. Pitched up outside off, Maxwell drives on the up away from his body. Nicely taken by Neesham. 19/4
1.5 to JR Philippe, and another...both sides having early problems! It's a brief first innings for Philippe, looking to work this through the leg side and gets a big top edge. Another catch for Conway. 8/2
3.2 to MS Wade, carved into the off side, taken at mid-off! Wade trying to go over the covers, comes off the toe end of the bat and it's a simple catch. 16/3
12.5 to MR Marsh, cut straight to Santner! Sharp chance taken at backward point! Short and wide, he leaned back flayed a cut shot hard and flat but Santner dives to his right and catches it nicely at chest height. 98/6
8.5 to MP Stoinis, short ball, straight back to the bowler! A bit of a long hop, really. Stoinis looked a little rushed as he tried to pull and skews it at chest height to Sodhi. 56/5
13.2 to DR Sams, top edge straight up to short fine! Simple catch for Jamieson. Shorter on leg, it bounced a touch more than he expected, he was trying to pull it over deep square and got a top edge that went straight up, Jamieson moves to his right and takes it easily. 99/7
13.4 to AC Agar, thick edge and a superb catch from the big man Jamieson diving forward at short third man! Leg break tossed up very high outside off, it was a half volley, Agar gives himself room to thrash it through point, gets a thick edge that carries all the way to short third man and Jamieson dives forward. 99/8
15.2 to KW Richardson, lofted straight down long off's throat! Sodhi has four! Tossed up outside off, Kane tries to loft with the spin over long off, he struck ok but not well enough to clear the man in the deep and it's a simple catch. 108/9
17.3 to JA Richardson, stumped by a mile trying to go again! Clever bowling. Jhye jumped out early again, Santner saw it, dragged the length shorter and beat him comprehensively. Easy stumping for Seifert. 131/10
