12.6 to MR Marsh, strangled down the leg side! Oh no. Santner bets this third in the over. Brilliant catch from Seifert. Drifting down leg, he got his bat out infront of the pad to glance it fine but just got a little tickle and Seifert moved down leg with superb footwork to complete the catch. 113/6
Ish Sodhi3041113.6653320
7.6 to AJ Finch, taken at deep midwicket! Finch's problems continue. He couldn't get going. Dragged down outside off, he rocks back and pulls over the leg side but it didn't come out of the middle. Good catch. 70/2
James Neesham1010210.0041100
19.1 to DR Sams, holes out to deep midwicket! A full toss in the slot, he got a good piece of it but it's one of the longest boundaries and it fell just a metre short, Phillips waited under it and held his nerve inside the rope!. 205/7
19.5 to MP Stoinis, caught at long on! New Zealand survive! It was a length ball in that slot that could have disappeared, but Stoinis tried to go over long on and sliced across it, hit it high in the air to straight long on and Southee took a good catch. 211/8
