Chris Martin30311513.8313416003
38.5 to MEK Hussey, finds the outside edge again as Hussey looks to drive through the off side, this time the ball flies between second and third slip and Watling takes a sharp catch going to his right. Another sharp piece of fielding from Watling. 115/3
Tim Southee1946803.57849001
Brent Arnel2648923.4212213010
5.5 to PJ Hughes, length ball outside off has Hughes playing a loose shot and finds the edge, Taylor takes a simple catch at first slip. 25/1
61.5 to SM Katich, around the wicket does the trick this time for Arnell as he beats the bat of Katich and hits him below the knee roll in front of middle and off, looking likely to hit leg stump. Huge celebrations from the New Zealanders. 176/4
Daryl Tuffey2274902.221086010
Daniel Vettori33511113.361438501
123.3 to MJ Clarke, leg-side stumping, smart stuff from Vettori, he knew Clarke would attack him, gave it some air and got it to drift down the leg side, Clarke gave him the charge and couldn't get his bat to it as it slipped down past his pads, McCullum collected well and clipped the bails to find him well short, a fine knock that put Australia in control ends, Clarke departs for his highest Test score. 429/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Doug Bollinger1342852.15672013
0.5 to BJ Watling, gone first ball, trapped in front, some swing there for Bollinger, swung in to land on middle and moved down to strike him on the pads in front of middle and leg, Watling was half-forward and tried to drive that through the leg side, missed and was caught plumb. 3/1
26.1 to LRPL Taylor, edged and superbly taken by North at third slip! Bolly comes back strikes with his first ball of a new spell, short of a length, surprised Taylor a bit with the extent of bounce on that one, played at it off the back foot, got a thick edge and Marcus North dived full length to his right to pluck a sharp one. 43/4
56.1 to BB McCullum, back of a length and McCullum is quick onto the pull shot but swings it into the air off the toe of the bat down to fine leg, Harris takes a very well judged catch running and diving forward at fine leg. Very nicely taken from Harris but a rash shot from McCullum. 148/6
56.3 to MJ Guptill, a rising delivery back of a length from Bollinger, Guptill looks tentative outside the off stump as he looks to defend but gets a feather of an edge and Haddin does the rest to his right. Good aggression from Bollinger who is straight into his work. 148/7
58.4 to BJ Arnel, first ball batting in test cricket for Arnell, back of a length from Bollinger angling across the right hander and Arnell gets a feather on the ball to the safe hands of Ponting at second slip who takes a good catch leaning forward. 156/9
Ryan Harris1744222.47834012
17.4 to TG McIntosh, gone, McIntosh's torture ends, Harris gets his maiden Test wicket, he's been leaving those deliveries until now but fell for one that pitched on a good length and left him a touch, drove at it hard, got a thick outside edge to Hussey who hangs on to a sharp catch at gully. 31/3
47.5 to DL Vettori, similar ball from Harris but a touch shorter and Vettori looks to drive again but doesn't get to the pitch and only manages to get an edge to the right of second slip, a sharp catch taken by Ponting. 112/5
Mitchell Johnson11.153813.40546100
59.1 to TG Southee, length ball and Southee who has no faith in Martin as he swings to mid wicket, big noise as the ball passes the bat. The Australians are confident and Southee is given out but he refers the decision instantly. Clearly a noise as the ball passes the bat but nothing from hot spot. The replay suggests there is no contact with the bat but no concrete evidence to reverse the decision. Unlucky for Southee but great news for this Australian side who has come out this morning and done the business with some good aggressive bowling. 157/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Doug Bollinger2738022.9612712012
34.2 to BJ Watling, full and straight and Watling looks to play the ball square on the leg side but cannot get any bat on it. Huge appeal and umpire Gould has no hesitation in raising the finger. After discussion with McIntosh, Watling asks for the decision to be reviewed. Has it pitched in line with the leg stump......just. That's out. 70/1
38.3 to PJ Ingram, back of a length angling across Ingram who pushes at a ball well wide of the off stump and manages only to get a feather on it through to Haddin who takes the simpliest of catches. 78/2
Ryan Harris2437743.2010810000
58.6 to MJ Guptill, full again and Guptill looks to drive but doesn't quite get his weight forward and meekly chips it to short extra cover where North makes no mistake. A rather soft dismissal that will disappoint Guptill. 136/4
127.5 to BB McCullum, disaster for New Zealand as Harris hits a good channel back of a length and McCullum meekly fends at the ball off the back foot and finds a juicy outside edge to the right of Clarke at first slip. 388/7
129.1 to TG Southee, full ball wide of the off stump from Harris has Southee chasing the ball and can only managed a healthy edge that flies to Clarke at first slip who takes a comfotable catch just to his right. Not what was needed from Southee as he exposes Arnell to a king pair. 392/8
131.6 to BJ Arnel, full and straight and Arnel looks to hit the ball off the front foot through mid wicket but cannot get any bat on it. The umpire has no hesitation in saying that is out as the ball crashes into the front pad. Tuffey suggests Arnell refer that but the signs are not good as the ball would have clipped the bails in front of middle and leg to confirm the umpires decision. 396/9
Mitchell Johnson29.5710713.5813113101
134.5 to CS Martin, full and straight and too good for Martin who looks to defend but finds only air as the ball crashes into middle stump to bring the New Zealand innings to a close. 407/10
Nathan Hauritz491611932.422358308
47.3 to LRPL Taylor, back of a length ball well outside the off stump hits the foot marks and turns sharply and keeps low. Taylor doesn't offer a shot as the ball crashes into the pads at shin height. Big appeal but not given, the Australians refer the decision and whilst the ball is hitting Taylor outside the line of the off stump, it is going on to hit middle with no shot played, that's out and a huge disappointment for New Zealand. Hauritz has won the battle this time. 115/3
69.5 to TG McIntosh, full ball angling into the stumps has McIntosh pushing forward, good drift and no turn as the ball finds the inside edge and Katich takes a good sharp catch under the helmet. That brings to an end a fine and disciplined innings from McIntosh. 183/5
105.6 to DL Vettori, full ball well down the leg side has Vettori sweeping but can only manage a thin under edge as the ball turns and crashes into the leg stump. 309/6
