BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Trent Boult3169713.1214515110
103.3 to JC Archer, edged, and gone! New Zealand on fire! Just a length ball in the channel outside off, Archer was neither forward nor back fending at it and Southee takes a decent catch in the cordon. The game has flipped on its head in the last 30 minutes. 295/8
Tim Southee3278842.7514712000
81.4 to JL Denly, edged, and gone this time! Wide on the crease from Southee, outswinger on a good length and draws Denly into the shot. Just a little nibble at it, and Watling takes a sharp catch diving to his right. Important breakthrough.... 203/4
100.1 to BA Stokes, gottim - Taylor takes a screamer at slip! Stokes is chiselled out short of his hundred, courtesy of a brilliant one-handed grab! Southee hung the ball out wide, Stokes was looking to bully a shot through the covers and skipped out to meet it, instead a thick edge flew towards regulation first slip... except that Taylor and Latham had been moved a little wide, in order to cover more ground, and he had fractions of a second to react, thrusting up an instinctive right hand and snagging the chance!. 277/5
102.4 to OJ Pope, tempter, floated up and swinging away, Pope takes the bait! Oh dear, he's thrown it away there! Southee gets another, a canny piece of bowling, inviting Pope to have a go - but he was nowhere near the pitch, the ball curling tantalisingly out of reach and grazing the bat through to Watling!. 286/6
102.5 to SM Curran, stone dead first ball! Curran reviews but this is out all week long... Southee has two in two, hooping inswinger and Curran's feet are stuck in treacle, smacked on the front pad and this is only going to end one way. Yep, hitting middle and leg according to Hawk-Eye, and Big Sam has to go. Two big breakthroughs for New Zealand. 286/7
Colin de Grandhomme2354121.781153011
21.4 to DP Sibley, but gone this time! Sibley's maiden Test innings comes to an end. Fullish on fourth stump, textbook nibbly length from CdG which Sibley looks to work through the leg side, but it moves away a touch off the seam and flies into the grateful hands of Ross Taylor at slip!. 52/1
45.1 to RJ Burns, has a nibble at another gentle away-nibbler angled across him, and there's a thin edge on it! Burns departs almost immediately after reaching his half-century, with a non-committal waft at what was a fairly unthreatening delivery from CdG.. 113/2
Neil Wagner3279032.8115313010
52.6 to JE Root, edged, and gone! Loose shot from Root, not a great ball but that's what the mounting scoring pressure does to you. Angled across the right-hander again, and he loses his patience, has a pointless nibble at it, and Tim Southee snaffles the catch in the slips!. 120/3
121.1 to JC Buttler, slapped hard over point, picks out Santner on the rope! Buttler's handy rearguard ends with an overhit swat, trying to cash in on a short, wide delivery. Santner had in fact only just hurdled the boundary boards to get back in play as Wagner delivered the ball, having been signing autographs for the crowd!. 347/9
123.6 to SCJ Broad, dragged on, Wagner finishes things! Pinned back by a series of bouncers, Broad is then unable to get far enough forward to a full one, and ends up deflecting a thick inside edge into his stumps. 353/10

Stuart Broad33136401.931679000
Jofra Archer421510712.542039221
199.6 to BJ Watling, swings hard, feathers an edge - Watling departs at long last! England get their man, after 473 balls of trying, and he will walk off to an impressive ovation at the Bay Oval. Archer gets some relief, though the gods know Watling wouldn't have got out had he not been trying to push on for the team cause. 603/9
Sam Curran35711933.4015314110
7.3 to TWM Latham, fullish, straight, struck on the pad, big shout... and given! Root's early bowling change pays off. No massive swing, maybe a bit of nibble, two noises as it strikes the pad but he decides not to review. And oh, is that a mark on HotSpot? Drama! Hmm, tough to work it out even after a couple of replays. I think the bat hit the pad, then the ball hit the pad, then the ball hit the inside edge... maybe. So a good decision... I think. 18/1
39.4 to KS Williamson, scratch that, he's thrown it away out of nowhere! Curran gets one to bounce up off a length, 78mph/126kph but it fizzes up viciously off the pitch. Williamson is taken by surprise and can only fend it into the hands of Stokes at wide second slip via the glove! Now then.... 127/4
193.3 to MJ Santner, length ball on fourth stump, clubbed up in the air... it couldn't happen, could it? ... got him! Do not adjust your monitors, England have taken a wicket! A magnificent 261-run partnership comes to an end as Pope clings onto a straightforward chance at long-on, and Santner's epic innings of 126 is finally over. 577/7
Jack Leach47715323.2520314500
22.4 to JA Raval, goes again, and goes for good! Dirty slog and it's plucked at midwicket! England's eagerness for Leach to get at Raval is proven well-judged, and they pick up their second wicket. Although he connected pretty well with the shot, England had packed the leg-side with catchers and Pope leapt to take a good catch above his head. 72/2
198.6 to TG Southee, gone, chipped back to the bowler! The fun times are brief for Southee - and he won't get any further up this list - as Leach clings on to a firm chance bunted at him in his follow through. 598/8
Ben Stokes2657422.841198041
32.6 to LRPL Taylor, dug in short, Taylor thrashes at a pull... and sends this spiralling to deep midwicket! He had been keen to take on the bumper attack, but wasn't in control of this shot, and it's safely pouched by Pope running in! Vital breakthrough for England from Stokes. 106/3
110.1 to C de Grandhomme, gor blimey, whaddacatch! Sibley has plucked a stunner at gully, Stokes breaks the stand with the first delivery after tea! The Grand Homme has to head straight back to the dressing room... he connected pretty well with a cut, but Sibley flew to his right and grabbed the ball one-handed a couple of inches above the turf!. 316/6
Joe Root1836713.72725140
70.4 to HM Nicholls, sliding on with the arm, past the inside edge - that's lbw! No debate about this one, as Bruce Oxenford raises his finger and Nicholls elects to take his medicine. Looked like it would have cannoned into leg stump, done by the lack of spin, and England have their breakthrough. 197/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tim Southee2046013.00917000
68.4 to BA Stokes, gottim, dragged on to his stumps! That'll do for New Zealand, Stokes conspiring in his own downfall! The ball was wide, no need for him to play at it but down came a crooked bat in an attempt to cut, and the deflection removed his leg bail. Southee strikes, New Zealand five wickets away. 121/5
Trent Boult64601.00331000
Colin de Grandhomme1031511.50542010
42.4 to JE Root, gone - steered tamely to gully! De Grandhomme does the business and it's the big wicket of England's captain. Not sure what he was trying to do there, another short ball, wide of the off stump this time, and he plopped it low into the hands of the diving Latham! Glee unconfined for the New Zealanders as they get their first of the day. 69/4
Mitchell Santner40195331.322169001
21.5 to DP Sibley, got him! Length ball outside off, a good bit of turn and Sibley pushes at it needlessly. Santner draws a thin edge, Watling snaffles it, and the seventh-wicket heroes combine again to give New Zealand the breakthrough!. 48/1
25.1 to RJ Burns, tossed up outside the off stump, Burns premeditates the sweep and top-edges it right up in the air, and it's straight down de Grandhomme's throat at square leg! Terrible shot, especially given the circumstances, and New Zealand have another vital breakthrough before stumps. 53/2
27.4 to MJ Leach, length outside off, Leach pushes forward at it, and Latham takes a screamer at short leg! Leach thinks about reviewing it, but decides against... looked like there was a little bit of glove on it, then it struck the pad and spilled out in front of him, and Latham takes a stunning one-handed grab! And HotSpot and RTS both suggest that there wasn't any bat on it after all! Late drama at Bay Oval. 55/3
Neil Wagner19.264452.271008000
74.3 to JL Denly, huge appeal for caught behind, Dharmasena says no but they review it immediately. Very wide on the crease, back of a length outside off. Denly shoulders arms but there's a small mark on his gloves according to HotSpot, and that's the end of him! That's what DRS is for, a clear mark and New Zealand knew it was an incorrect decision. Denly trudges off after a stoic effort, and England are sliding into some real trouble.... 132/6
76.2 to OJ Pope, slower ball, full toss outside off, and Santner takes an absolute blinder at short cover! Pope didn't pick the change of pace - down at 67mph/108kph and released with the knuckles - and was taken by surprise by the full toss, and looked to carve it through cover, but Santner, who was in very close to the bat, flung himself to his right and the ball lodged into his right mitt... New Zealand are closing in!. 133/7
80.1 to JC Buttler, bowled 'im! The new ball works a treat! Full, yorker-length from round the wicket, Buttler doesn't offer a shot, and it crashes into the base of off stump! My oh my... if that doesn't sum up how England have fared in the past four days, what does? Think Glenn Maxwell's leave against Ryan Duffield in the 2014-15 BBL - it's that hard to fathom. 138/8
96.1 to JC Archer, short ball on leg stump, Archer flicks it away off the hip in the air but straight down deep backward square leg's throat! Henry, on as sub, takes the catch, and Wagner lets out his trademark celebratory roar. New Zealand are one away!. 197/9
96.2 to SCJ Broad, low full toss, smacks Broad flush on the pad, huge appeal, and given! Broad reviews, though it looked stone-dead live. No bat on it, and it's crashing into the base of middle stump. And that will be that!. 197/10
