Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Matthew Wade, 1.3 ov), 2-89 (Josh Philippe, 9.6 ov), 3-153 (Aaron Finch, 15.5 ov), 4-194 (Glenn Maxwell, 17.6 ov)
17.6 to GJ Maxwell, good catch diving forward by Seifert. Full and in at the stumps. Backs into the leg side to try and reverse ramp over short third. Inside edge onto pad, lobs up for the keeper who does well to get under that with a lunge. What an innings from Maxwell. Got his last 40 runs in 11 balls. 194/4
1.3 to MS Wade, edged, well caught at slip! Back of a length outside off, Wade playing away from his body looking to drive. Healthy nick and Guptill moves to his right to snaffle it. 6/1
9.6 to JR Philippe, taken at long-on! Doesn't get away with it this time. Came down the pitch, had to reach for the shot, went a long way in the air which gave Guptill time to get across and complete a very good catch. 89/2
15.5 to AJ Finch, taken at short third! Slow and turning away outside off again, makes Finch wait and wait. He can only drag that to the fielder there. Finch's innings ends - and it's one that he'll be relieved by. Got lucky with an lbw early on, and he cashed in. 153/3

TOTAL17.1 Ov (RR: 8.38, 82 Mins)144
Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Tim Seifert, 1.6 ov), 2-48 (Kane Williamson, 4.4 ov), 3-80 (Martin Guptill, 8.4 ov), 4-109 (Glenn Phillips, 12.1 ov), 5-109 (Devon Conway, 12.3 ov), 6-110 (James Neesham, 12.5 ov), 7-116 (Tim Southee, 14.1 ov), 8-138 (Mark Chapman, 16.2 ov), 9-144 (Kyle Jamieson, 16.6 ov), 10-144 (Ish Sodhi, 17.1 ov)
1.6 to TL Seifert, taken at cover! Meredith has his first wicket. A length ball, Seifert aims to the leg side, slices across the delivery, sends it well into the night sky and Stoinis does very well to settle underneath it. 20/1
4.4 to KS Williamson, gone, Meredith strikes again! Gets this fuller, Williamson playing across the line, that looked pretty straight. He's having an impact on debut. 48/2
8.4 to MJ Guptill, taken at long-off! Tossed up at the stumps, Guptill tries to go over cover but can't quite get it wide enough and Agar takes a pretty comfortable catch. That's a big dent in New Zealand's hopes. 80/3
17.1 to IS Sodhi, and that is that. Richardson takes it pitch side off his own bowling. Good length ball at the stumps, Sodhi clears the front leg and gives it a big heave. It's a skier and taken comfortably around hort midwicket. 144/10
12.1 to GD Phillips, holes out at long-on. Length ball tossed up wide outside off, spins away from his slog sweep. He ends up slicing it and it is taken easily. 109/4
12.3 to DP Conway, taken at deep midwicket this time! Length ball turning in from outside off, shuffles and gets a little too close to the incoming delivery. His sweep is off the inside half of the bat and straight to the fielder. 109/5
12.5 to JDS Neesham, appeal for catch behind and it is given. Neesham not too sure, but he won't take the DRS. This is full and sliding across him. He looks to drive through cover and jams the bat into the pitch. It's also got a thin outisde edge by the sounds of it as this happens. He walks back for a golden duck to close out a bad day. Agar has three wickets in the over! And a ball to come still. 110/6
14.1 to TG Southee, must be great to be Agar. Lobs this loopy length ball outisde off, Southee's feet are down leg side, his bat swishing well outside off. Ends up chipping it to Maxwell at long-off. 116/7
16.2 to MS Chapman, a five-for from Agar! And completed by a very good take from Zampa. Length ball outside off, top edge on the slog sweep hangs to Zampa's right at short third. Swerves away from him and after running sideways to his right, he's forced to then dive forward and to his right. Manages to take it inches off the ground. 138/8
16.6 to KA Jamieson, oh this looks good for a six-for. Umpire's given lbw, Jamieson reviews. It's a straighter one at off and middle. Jamieson steps across to try and ramp it fine. He's caught on the knee flap of his front leg, in front of middle stump. No bat or glove on it. Wickets will be umpire's call. That is six wickets for Agar. Incredible spell!. 144/9
