14.2 to TH David, Milne returns and bags the big wicket of David! Milne pounds it on a heavy length and just outside off, the ball hits the bat as opposed to bat hitting the ball. Spliced into the hands of Santner at extra-cover. Aus are in danger of being bowled out at Eden Park. 138/7
18.5 to PJ Cummins, Holes out to Ferguson at long-on! Back of a length and wide of off as Milne hides it away from Cummins' swinging arc. Cummins still connects but ends up dragging it to the outfielder. 171/8
2.1 to SPD Smith, huge lbw appeal given not out. New Zealand review very late. This hooped in miles late. Was it pad first? Yes. Then inside edge. Smith is in trouble. Ball tracking has it smashing middle halfway up! He was hit in line with off. It hit the pad first and then inside edge. The umpire might have thought bat first. Unbelievable late swing. Great review. Smith is gone.. 32/1
10.1 to JP Inglis, ...and he bounces Inglis out! Chapman hangs onto this. Chest-high short ball, angling into the body, Ferguson has Inglis splicing the pull. Chapman runs across to his right from deep square leg and settles under this coolly. No mistake from Chapman this time around. 115/5
19.4 to A Zampa, Plinked to Santner at mid-off. Zampa backs away, Ferguson follows him with a hard-length delivery and has him mis-hitting it to the NZ captain. 174/9
19.5 to JR Hazlewood, Caught by Clarkson at deep point. Very full and very wide of off - not quite a yorker - Hazlewood reaches out for the ball and slices it to Clarkson who gives the thumbs-up to his team-mates. 174/10
6.4 to TM Head, chopped on! 143kph, full at off stump, Head clears the front leg to try and heave it across the line over wide long-on, gets an inside edge and it crashes into middle. Big breakthrough. 85/2
8.5 to GJ Maxwell, Boult hangs on at long-on! Full on leg, Maxwell sits back and flushes it to long-on but hits it low and flat, Boult hangs as he crouches low and falls back to take the catch. 104/3
9.1 to MR Marsh, clunked to long-on! Australia in trouble! Full, darted into middle, he sits back and tries to lofts on the up over long-on but miscues and Boult is there again to take a smart catch on the rope and keep his balance. 108/4
11.3 to MS Wade, Make that six down! Wade skies a return catch to Santner. Back of a length and into the pitch from Santner, he finds some extra bounce to mess with Wade's pull. The batter can only splice it back to the bowler. 122/6

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Finn Allen, 0.6 ov), 2-14 (Will Young, 3.1 ov), 3-26 (Mitchell Santner, 5.3 ov), 4-29 (Mark Chapman, 6.3 ov), 5-74 (Josh Clarkson, 11.5 ov), 6-74 (Adam Milne, 11.6 ov), 7-83 (Glenn Phillips, 13.3 ov), 8-100 (Trent Boult, 15.5 ov), 9-102 (Lockie Ferguson, 16.6 ov) • DRS
0.6 to FH Allen, chopped on! Back of a length, fifth stump line, he angles the bat to try and run through gully, gets a thick inside edge onto pad and it runs onto off stump. 6/1
3.1 to WA Young, top edge magnificently caught be Wade! Incredible catch! Short ball outside off, Young takes on the pull shot gets a top edge that flies towards fine leg, Wade runs from his position behind the stumps towards fine leg and takes a spectacular full length diving catch catch just above the ground! He was well outside the circle when he caught it with Ellis coming at him the other way. That was outstanding. 14/2
5.3 to MJ Santner, dragged on! Santner's promotion ends badly. Good short slower ball grips in the surface, Santner doesn't spot, he's through the pull shot and drags it off the bottom edge onto off stump. 26/3
16.6 to LH Ferguson, bowled im! Full and straight. Ferguson swings. Misses. And that's the end of that. Australia take a 2-0 lead and that means they will retain the Chappell-Hadlee series. 102/9
6.3 to MS Chapman, holes out to mid-on! Another miscue off the top edge! Banged in short, outside off, he tries to pull against the angle and gets a thick top edge that floats high to wide mid-on. It's an easy catch for David.. 29/4
11.5 to JA Clarkson, Zampa knocks Clarkson over! Full and fast at 98ks, angling in and dipping to beat Clarkson's massive swing and thud into the stumps. Zampa returns and takes Clarkson out. 74/5
11.6 to AF Milne, Double-blow from Zampa! Milne drags it back onto his own stumps. Suspect this was the wrong'un from Zampa. He lobs it up full and wide of off. Milne reaches out for an ambitious drive and can only play on. Australia's win % has zoomed up to 96, according to ESPNcricinfo's forecaster. 74/6
13.3 to GD Phillips, Phillips holes out to long-on as Zampa strikes once again! Back of a length, into the pitch, Zampa gets some extra bounce and has Phillips dragging it off the top of the stumps to David at long-on. 83/7
15.5 to TA Boult, outside edge and he's gone. Slows it right down. Keeps it tossed up. Boult's eyes light up, seeing he has more opportunities for big hits. The other trick Zampa does here is angle the ball into the right-hander, making him hit against the turn. From there, a little dip, a little grip and money for Smith at backward point. 100/8
