Tim Southee403208.0093100
Trent Boult402726.75113010
9.4 to GJ Maxwell, chipped straight to extra cover. Boult was back for the wicket and he has got it. Full and just outisde off. Wants to get this over the fielder, or perhaps square of him, but this isn't a pitch for the big drive. He's through it early and it comes off the low part of the bat for an easy catch. 68/3
13.6 to AC Agar, into the blockhole and out goes Agar! Boult too good for him. Full, quick and past his front toe to hit the stumps. 97/5
Mitchell Santner401614.00131000
2.3 to MS Wade, steered straight to short third man! Short of a length outside off, looks to use the angle to get the late cut fine of that fielder. Gets it high on the bat and it lobs up easily for Sodhi. 18/1
Kyle Jamieson4049012.2592520
Ish Sodhi403238.0093100
6.6 to JR Philippe, sharply taken running back from short fine. That is good work from Southee on a windy day. This ball was high and it was behind him, so he had to judge this perfectly. It's a short of a length, gripping and rising ball at middle stump. Philippe looks to pull that over square leg. Gets a leading edge and Southee has to track that going back and to his left. It gets away from him a little after he settles under it but he stretches his arms out behind and holds on. 42/2
12.6 to MP Stoinis, Williamson flies to his right to take a screamer! Short of a length and into the pitch again, making them create all the power. Stoinis has it, and he looks to lash another one aerially off the back foot as the ball turns. It's to KW's right but it's not getting past him as he gets parallel to the ground and gets two hands on it. Brilliant stuff. 93/4
16.3 to MR Marsh, taken at short fine. Full, slow, dipping at middle stump. Mitch Marsh in a poor position for a sweep shot, not low enough and is almost reaching out by the end. A top edge lobs nicely for the fielder. 114/6

Ashton Agar401122.75171000
4.2 to MJ Guptill, a plan that works for Australia at long-off. And the right man for the completion too. Maxwell with some strides to his left, a sudden pause of the left ankle as it comes in danger of touching the boundary padding. And then he lobs it up to return to safer territory and seal the wicket. Agar had him positioned wide just for this attempted loft with the turn that Guptill likes. It wasn't full enough outside off and he couldn't complete the shot. 21/1
15.4 to DP Conway, comes down the pitch and aims straight but it doesn't have the legs and it's a simple catch at long-on. 80/8
Riley Meredith302006.6683010
Jhye Richardson201608.0053000
Adam Zampa402426.0082010
11.3 to JDS Neesham, crunched straight to extra cover! Full and wide and inviting a release shot that New Zealand are desperate for at the moment. It's hit well but Finch is on the edge of the circle. Takes it low to his left. 48/5
16.2 to IS Sodhi, taken at extra cover. Length ball pushed wide outside off, steps out and can't reach that. Has a hack, ends up slicing a simple one for Finch. 82/9
Kane Richardson2.501936.7081110
7.5 to TL Seifert, chopped it on! This has been good short bowling from Richardson - it's been at the body every single ball. Seifert in this case does not move around to create room. Is forced to try and runs that to third man as it keeps slanting in, and he can only play it on. 34/2
13.5 to TG Southee, Wade takes a simple one. Short one at an off stump line again, shuffles around a bit too much and loses his shape on the pull. Top edge is grabbed easily by the keeper. 64/7
18.5 to KA Jamieson, taken at long-on! Australia have leveled the series at 2-2. It's a slower length ball outside off, it's in his swinging arc, but he's done by the change in pace and hits it high. Taken comfortably in the deep. 106/10
Glenn Maxwell301424.6681010
8.4 to KS Williamson, backward point runs in and takes the catch to dismiss Williamson! Length ball drifting away from off stump. Not full enough for the sweep. Gets big on him as he attempts it and comes off the back of the bat to hang harmlessly in front of Marsh who gets a reverse cup in even as it dips on him. 36/3
12.6 to MJ Santner, inside edge onto the stumps! The slowness gets him. A nothing ball really, short and at off stump, no turn on it. Santner is looking to pump that over midwicket but is through it early. 57/6
