Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Tim Paine, 1.4 ov), 2-40 (Kumar Sangakkara, 3.4 ov), 3-42 (D'Arcy Short, 4.1 ov), 4-62 (George Bailey, 7.1 ov), 5-122 (Jonathan Wells, 13.4 ov), 6-122 (Dan Christian, 13.5 ov), 7-145 (Hamish Kingston, 16.5 ov), 8-153 (Cameron Boyce, 17.6 ov), 9-173 (Stuart Broad, 19.6 ov)
3.4 to KC Sangakkara, given! Sangakkara cannnnnot believe it. Flat delivery on leg, struck Sangakkara on leg. But did that pitch in line? Umpire Wilson thinks so. I don't. Pitched just outside, I reckon, especially because Badree is not a big turner. Definitely no bat. Doesn't matter. Sangakkara trudges off. 40/2
1.4 to TD Paine, fantastic comeback. Adjusts the length and asks Paine to play the toughest shot on a bouncy surface, a drive. Moving away a touch and Paine can't control his drive because his feet are not quite to the pitch. Skews off the outside half and Ross takes a sitter at backward point. 14/1
4.1 to DJM Short, bowled. Straight through. Was that the wisest choice of shot with this score? Full and straight from Steketee, Short gives himself some room and looks to go straight but misses the ball. The zing bails light up and Hurricanes in a bit of trouble. 42/3
13.4 to JW Wells, good change in pace. 114 kph, slower ball outside off, Wells swats the ball straight to Lynn at deep midwicket who fumbles and parries but importantly, holds on. 122/5
13.5 to DT Christian, another one. Two in two. Hurricanes six down. Full and very wide outside off, so wide that Christian had to stretch out to reach it. Chipped the ball straight to the sweeper cover. 122/6
17.6 to CJ Boyce, full and straight this time. Boyce backs away, wants to go over long-on but hits it terribly. Skews off the outside half and hangs in the air for a while. Lynn runs in to mid-on from long-on and takes a good catch. Made it look simpler than it was. 153/8
16.5 to HP Kingston, given! The Flipper. Flat on off, skids on and beats the bat on the inside edge. Struck him in front of off. Plumb in front, good decision. 145/7

TOTAL16.2 Ov (RR: 10.65)174/3
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Jimmy Peirson, 1.1 ov), 2-118 (Brendon McCullum, 9.6 ov), 3-134 (Alex Ross, 13.2 ov)
1.1 to JJ Peirson, taken off the first delivery. Extra bounce. Hits a good length, and with his height, that was always going to be a tough shot. Peirson wanted to ride the bounce and work the ball into the leg side but could only get a thick leading edge which landed in mid-off's hands. Turned his back and went off straightaway. Could have easily crossed over to give Baz strike. Not good from Peirson. 9/1
13.2 to AI Ross, wow, 144 kph swinging delivery and straight. Ross has no idea what has happened? He's undone by pure pace, add swing to that and you get wickets. Ross looks to work the ball into the leg side, but the ball goes past his closed bat face and hits leg stump.. 134/3
9.6 to BB McCullum, great bowling. Sticks with some flight and loop and full on middle, McCullum hits the ball cleanly but straight down long-on's throat. End of a sublime knock from McCullum. Well bowled from Boyce. 118/2
