Tim Southee403829.5082241
19.2 to MR Marsh, cleans him up! Full and straight, Marsh misses and the middle stump goes back. Took Southee a few deliveries to get the radar right but that was the perfect yorker. 139/7
19.6 to JA Richardson, a wicket to finish with! A full delivery at leg stump, Jhye gets underneath it but can't get the distance to clear deep midwicket. 142/8
Mitchell Santner402105.25102000
Trent Boult402626.50102100
2.2 to JR Philippe, full, straight and out! Boult makes the breakthrough, Fired in at the stumps, Philippe looking to whip it through the leg side and that's stone dead. 8/1
14.2 to MS Wade, taken at deep midwicket! Full at off stump, Wade looking to whip it over the leg side, can't get the distance and it's well taken. Came from low down on the bat. That was a knuckle ball from Boult, well bowled. 103/4
Mark Chapman20914.5040000
10.5 to GJ Maxwell, taken at deep backward square! Huge moment. Chapman strikes. A low full toss, Maxwell goes for a powerful sweep and places straight to the fielder. 77/3
Ish Sodhi402436.00112100
9.6 to AJ Finch, taken this time! Short outside off, this time Finch slices it in the air off the back foot and Santner takes a good catch at point. 74/2
17.1 to MP Stoinis, a full toss, straight to long-off! It's not always good balls that get wickets. That was filthy. Stoinis miscues his attempt to go straight down the ground and walks off shaking his head.. 122/5
17.2 to AC Agar, another huge full toss, another wicket! Goodness me. That was an even bigger full toss, Agar aiming over the leg side and Guptill judges it well. 122/6

Ashton Agar402606.5092100
Riley Meredith403929.75106100
11.5 to DP Conway, taken at sweeper cover. Meredith brings a wicket in the middle overs again. Looks like an offcutter. Full and just outside off. Conway looks to drill that through the off side and ends up opening the face too much. Off the thick outside edge and straight to the fielder. 106/1
11.6 to KS Williamson, lbw given and Williamson reviews. Length ball pins him on the flap of the front leg as he looks to turn it into the leg side. Was on a leg stump line with the angle possibly taking that down. Ultra Edge confirms no bat on it. And on wickets it is umpire's call! That is trimming the outside of leg stump.. 106/2
Jhye Richardson301916.3362010
14.1 to MJ Guptill, taken at short fine. Looks to pump this short of a length delivery over deep midwicket but it gets big on him. A top edge is all he can get and Marsh takes a simple one around the corner. Guptill walks off to a standing ovation, he's set New Zealand up for a series win. 124/3
