BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Brett Lee1007127.10254233
2.5 to SP Fleming, Lee strikes! Short of a length ball on off stump, angling away from Fleming who drives on the up, he can't keep the drive along the ground and ends up hitting it straight to Hussey at mid-off. 12/1
44.3 to JDP Oram, caught at deep midwicket! Huge huge wicket for Australia, Lee banged it in short and Oram pulled it powerfully, that man Hodge again covers good ground and dives low to his left to take a sharp catch, he's delighted and the Aussies run to mob him, they know the importance of that wicket. 233/5
Shaun Tait1012612.60431000
36.5 to L Vincent, good length ball on off stump swinging into Vincent, he tries to flick but the ball beats him and hits the pad before going on to hit the stumps, Tait gets his reward for an outstanding spell, he's bowled at a terrific pace all day and with much more control. 188/3
Stuart Clark1016126.10325111
47.6 to SB Styris, full toss on middle and leg stump, Styris hits it well off his pads but picks out Hussey at deep midwicket, Hussey takes a relatively simple catch and New Zealand are six down. 269/6
49.1 to BB McCullum, outstanding yorker, right up there in the blockhole, McCullum tries to hit it down the ground and the ball squeezes under his bat and rattles leg stump. 275/7
Mitchell Johnson704806.85144010
Michael Clarke904525.00221020
31.3 to PG Fulton, LBW! The sweep does Fulton in. Clarke pitches that just outside off stump, Fulton goes down on one knee and tries to sweep, he misses and the ball hits him just in line of off stump, replays show that the ball would have hit middle and off stump. 163/2
41.3 to LRPL Taylor, bowled him! Clarke bowls that fast and a fraction shorter on off stump, Taylor makes a little bit of room and tries to play the slog sweep, he misses and Clarke hits. 212/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Franklin1005625.60325102
10.6 to AC Gilchrist, bowled him! Franklin jumps in joy as Gilchrist misses a heave over midwicket and gets a thick inside edge on to his stumps, rash shot that because he tried to fetch that from outside off stump. 56/1
12.6 to ML Hayden, dropped a fraction short and Hayden pulls and pulls hard, he hit that flat and straight down Taylor's throat at deep midwicket, he hardly had to move and completes an easy catch. 65/2
Shane Bond906407.11207012
Mark Gillespie8.204515.40233001
46.1 to RT Ponting, caught in the deep! Ponting slams it down the ground to long-off, he hit that right out of the screws, Vincent sprinted in from the fence, dived forward and took an excellent low catch. 266/4
Jacob Oram504408.8073001
Daniel Vettori1005515.50251122
22.4 to MJ Clarke, caught behind! Clarke reaches out for a very wide ball and tries to cut, he should have left that for it would have most certainly been wide, he gets the toe end of the bat on it and McCullum takes a sharp catch. 112/3
