Tim Southee1014704.70334120
Trent Boult1006426.40308130
3.6 to JM Bairstow, taken at slip and Bairstow's problems outside the off stump consume him or was he just fretting over the inswinger that would have threatened his stumps?. In any case, he thrusts his hands out at a good length ball angling across him and offers a healthy edge through to Ross Taylor.. 10/1
46.6 to CR Woakes, does him with the slowy! Woakes is looking for the drive over extra cover, because there is width on the ball. Problem is there is no pace, and those shots need pace to time properly. Boult secures the inside edge, and then the catch reaching to his right. 253/7
Mitchell Santner1005425.40277000
18.6 to JJ Roy, through him! Santner sneaks an arm ball through. Roy hasn't moved the front foot again but this time he won't get away. It's an arm ball, and it's cramped him. The lack of feet has created a gap as he looks to push this to long-on to pick up his fifty. Leg stump is tonked. 89/2
28.2 to BA Stokes, teases Stokes and induces the top edge. Crafty from Santner. Gets this to dip after tossing it up from around the wicket. It falls just short of good length. Stokes has already got in position to biff the one that turns in with a slog sweep. The ball sits in the pitch, rises a touch and goes straight through spins marginally. Taylor has a wee jog to his right and takes comfortably. 139/4
Colin de Grandhomme402005.0081000
Ish Sodhi1006326.30302510
21.4 to EJG Morgan, done by the googly again! This time he'll pay with the wicket. Sodhi nails the length on this. It's tossed up and dipping on a middle stump line. The square leg region is vacant and alluring - Morgan goes for the flick in anticipation of the legbreak. He gets a leading edge that goes straight to mid-off. 104/3
41.2 to MM Ali, straight up... and it comes down to snuggle with Martin Guptill! New Zealand gamble with their wristspinner and he loots the house! Moeen, having looked phenomenal, is gone, ruing his charge down the pitch. That allows Sodhi to sneak in a googly, line it up very wide, force him to mistime the shot off the very bottom of his bat and have him caught at cover. 228/6
Colin Munro603115.16191200
34.4 to JE Root, breaches his defences! Munro has induced a whip across the line from Root. It looks like it's a knuckle ball too. Whether he meant it or not is unclear, but Munro is screaming in celebration. It's full and angled in at off stump. Root goes across the line and leaves a big gap as he tries to drill it through midwicket. Munro hits off stump. 181/5

David Willey612614.33244000
8.5 to KS Williamson, edged and gone! Williamson was looking to glide a late cut, but the ball was too tight to his bat, and Buttler scoops a low catch behind the stumps! A massive breakthrough for England, and the off-colour Kane troops back to the pavilion. 27/2
Chris Woakes8.204725.64326210
1.4 to C Munro, wider line, Munro has a charge, can't reach the pitch and snicks a thin edge to the keeper! That's a huge comeback from Woakes, and a disappointing shot from Munro. He'd already creamed one in the over, but was barely in the same postcode as that delivery. 6/1
9.3 to MJ Guptill, this one is gone all right! Width, smashed, but straight to Stokes on the edge of the circle, who plucks a fiercely hit stroke in front of his eyes!. 27/3
Tom Curran1006516.50184120
40.2 to HM Nicholls, slashed straight to backward point! Here come England, given a sniff by that breakthrough and now making it count. The shot was on for Nicholls, short and wide outside off, but the execution was lacking, leaning back in over-excitement, as he picked out Roy's midriff!. 206/5
Ben Stokes804325.37225020
39.5 to TWM Latham, there's the golden arm! A urgent slog-pull from Latham, trying to make something out of a good length ball outside off, but he scuffs his shot, high on the bat and straight to mid-on! England break the stand, and Stokes has his first wicket since September!. 205/4
41.5 to C de Grandhomme, no mistake from Buttler this time! Another slower ball from Stokes, another murderous mow from de Grandhomme. But he almost had time to meet the ball on the second windmill as he snicked the thinnest of edges through to the keeper, and now New Zealand are plummetting fast. 215/6
Moeen Ali503006.0092000
Adil Rashid1005515.50221210
45.5 to LRPL Taylor, dragged down the track and stumped by a mile! Beautiful flight and bite from Rashid, that's the impact the leggie can have at the death. Taylor wanted to keep the hammer down, but that was a wicket-taking delivery that demanded more respect, Buttler gathered way outside off to whip off the bails, and it's an ignominious end to a very very fine innings!. 244/7
