Shaun Tait402125.25152100
0.4 to BB McCullum, This one is quick again and McCullum pushes away from his body and it takes the outside edge and Haddin takes a remarkable catch diving full stretch to his right, snaring the ball in one hand. What a start!. 2/1
18.4 to JEC Franklin, full delivery and Franklin drives down the ground in the air, he mistimes it and Smith dives forward to his left at mid off to take a good catch. 113/8
Dirk Nannes402225.50154000
17.1 to JDP Oram, short and angled at the body and Oram pulls to mid wicket where Watson dives full stretch to his right and pulls of a superb one handed grab!. 109/6
17.6 to NL McCullum, good length from Nannes, McCullum tries to pull, it takes him high on the bat and it loops to Hussey at mid on. 111/7
Mitchell Johnson401934.75121010
4.1 to PJ Ingram, 143 kph, great start from Johnson as he bowls back of a length and Ingram plays all around it trying to work it through the leg side and it takes out middle stump. 13/2
6.4 to LRPL Taylor, Taylor walks across to the off side and looks to heave it over mid wicket but he misses and it takes him on his back foot outside the line of off stump and he's given out LBW. The hosts certainly didn't need that and Australia are rampant!. 33/3
10.5 to MJ Guptill, short and Guptill pulls into mid wicket where Watson moves back from mid wicket and takes the catch half-way between the boundary and the 30m circle. 54/4
Steven Smith20904.5050000
David Hussey10606.0010000
Shane Watson402325.75101100
15.6 to GJ Hopkins, advances down the pitch and attempts to play over cover but takes the outside edge through to Haddin. 104/5
19.6 to DR Tuffey, Tuffey moves across to outside off stump and it takes him on the thigh pad and Haddin collects it and half-appeals and umpire Baxter gives it out! Unlucky for Tuffey there. 118/10

Shane Bond403228.00132130
2.6 to DA Warner, he tries to heave it over mid wicket, gets a bottom edge back onto the stumps. New Zealand strike at last. 38/1
4.2 to MG Johnson, Bond strikes again! Good length and Johnson stays crease bound looking to drive, it takes the inside edge and back onto the stumps. The promotion hasn't quite worked.. 39/3
Daryl Tuffey2027013.5025000
Daniel Vettori401313.25130010
3.4 to SR Watson, tossed up and Watson plays down the wrong line, it takes him on the pad and everyone goes up and Baxter agrees that it is fairly adjacent. 38/2
Jacob Oram201507.5052010
Nathan McCullum302117.0073000
14.1 to DJ Hussey, half volley chipped straight to Guptill at cover. Disappointed finish to a good innings from Hussey.. 106/4
