BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson3087922.6314711000
94.4 to KS Williamson, that is the breakthrough, Anderson with the wicket-taking delivery, angled in, fullish length, KW not as forward as he would have liked to be, in fact, he's just half-forwardish, the ball moves away to take the edge through to a diving Prior's right. 260/2
137.4 to DG Brownlie, not the best delivery Anderson's bowled, short, wide, but he's cut it straight and low to backward point. 373/6
Stuart Broad3069403.131398301
Steven Finn37.3812563.3317520000
26.4 to HD Rutherford, he's thrown it away, what a waste with lunch beckoning, widish delivery, but not short enough, Rutherford slashes, and a delighted Cook is in the way of the thick edge at first slip. 79/1
112.3 to PG Fulton, what a ripper from Prior, one-handed leaping take at full stretch down the leg side, Fulton flicking a thin edge, and would have thought it was far enough from the keeper to be safe, wasn't to be, he'd gone nowhere this morning Fulton, and England have done all the running. 297/4
148.2 to TG Southee, wicket for England early after tea, and Southee's important cameo is over, makes room to steer a short ball over slip, finds the keeper. 424/7
150.4 to BP Martin, Finn has one more, his fourth, Martin forward to defend a length ball, some extra bounce, and edge travels decently to second slip. 436/8
152.2 to BJ Watling, Finn has his fifth, appeal for a catch down the leg side, and England review the not-out call from umpire Reiffel, Cook looked especially convinced, Watling tried to flick a length ball that was headed down leg, and Prior was around to collect, HotSpot shows a faint inside edge, and New Zealand are nine down. 443/9
152.3 to TA Boult, that is the end, it has come swiftly after tea, Boult gone first ball, tries to steer it past gully, and Compton takes a diving catch. 443/10
Monty Panesar471712312.6123014500
105.6 to LRPL Taylor, Taylor has given it away with too much eagerness, he was thrusting forward trying to score almost every delivery, tried to turn it to leg and has ended up popping back a leading edge to the bowler, reward for Panesar for flighting it again. 289/3
Jonathan Trott63911.50311000
132.4 to BB McCullum, Trott has his fourth Test wicket, he's sent back the dangerous McCullum, who went to drive a pitched up delivery, but only edged with the slight away swing through to Prior, standing up. 365/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Trent Boult2596862.7212410100
2.1 to AN Cook, uh oh, third batsman to have been strangled down leg today, harmless length ball going down leg, Cook wants to nudge it on its way, and a thin edge is snapped up by Watling, HotSpot confirms the slight connection. 8/1
15.5 to IJL Trott, swings in and hits him on the pad, that looked plumb, and umpire Reiffel gave it immediately, Trott goes for a review, major point is where it pitched, it pitched in line on a length, and then changed direction alarmingly to strike him in front of middle and leg, that was crashing into leg stump. 44/2
36.5 to JM Bairstow, another shout for lbw, they are hitting the pads regularly this morning, umpire Reiffel not convinced this time, New Zealand review, and Bairstow will be on his way, that pitched in line with middle and leg, and straightened enough to be hitting off and middle. 72/5
84.5 to SCJ Broad, gone this time, has another drive at a full away swinging delivery around off, and it flies straight to cover. 200/7
88.2 to ST Finn, edged, and Finn's stay is cut short by Ross Taylor at first slip, pushes forward to defend a length ball with an angled bat, and a tumbling Taylor takes the edge, maiden five-for for Trent Boult. 200/8
88.5 to JM Anderson, Boult is on fire, and he is slicing through England, Anderson pinned on the crease with a short of a length ball that holds its line, and a healthy edge is snapped up by the keeper to his left. 204/9
Tim Southee23.294431.881216010
27.6 to NRD Compton, huge shout for lbw, two sounds, umpire Reiffel says no, New Zealand will have a review, and Compton is in trouble, good length delivery angled in, the question is whether it was pad first, replays show it was, and they also show it is hitting middle and leg midway, the second sound could have been bat hitting pad on the forward defensive, not sure if bat hit ball, but that doesn't matter now, early strike for New Zealand. 61/3
33.3 to IR Bell, there is that incoming delivery, after so many wide ones, that has taken Bell by surprise, and umpire Reiffel has no issues with that, the batsman confer about it, and decide against the review, good length, angled in, nips in after pitching, strikes Bell above the knee roll as he is caught in the crease, you think that could have been worth a review for the height, need replays, which show it is clipping the top of leg, the decision would have stayed. 65/4
89.2 to JE Root, that'll be the end, Root has hacked awkwardly at a length ball, missed and Southee has disturbed the off stump. 204/10
Neil Wagner1533612.40715010
79.2 to MJ Prior, Prior is gone, he's seen another wide ball and gone after it, only to squirt it straight to point, falls just before the second new ball is due. 173/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1765913.47787200
4.4 to KS Williamson, Williamson's played on, holding its line and bouncing outside off, KW pushing at it from the crease, and chopping it on off the toe end, Anderson breaks into a relieved smile before going back to grimace in the huddle. 5/2
Stuart Broad1755423.17787100
1.3 to HD Rutherford, Broad needs three deliveries to strike, he's squeezed extra bounce out of this pitch with the effort ball, it has arrived chest height at Rutherford, and he's fended it in the air for gully to trot in and take the dolly. 4/1
7.6 to LRPL Taylor, that is plumb, and Broad is on fire, and Taylor is having a review of the lbw decision from umpire Reiffel, good length, coming in, past the defensive push, strikes him in front of middle and would have hit middle and leg, Taylor walks off before official word is in, because he'd seen the replays on the big screen. 8/3
Steven Finn1315714.38516100
52.2 to PG Fulton, the man is finally gone after batting for around twelve hours this game, mistimes a pull and sends it straight to long on. 199/5
Monty Panesar9.245325.67395400
35.3 to DG Brownlie, what an outstanding running catch from Bell, Brownlie stepped out but was not to the pitch, went through with a half-hearted lofted shot, hit it high in the air, looked like it would land safely, but Bell ran back a long distance from mid on, and took it over his shoulder, goes down tumbling with the effort. 82/4
57.2 to BJ Watling, Watling departs, slog-sweeps, gets it high in the air and deep midwicket does very well to judge the take, that stayed in flight for a long time. 241/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Trent Boult29135511.891487001
80.1 to JE Root, Trent Boult, you beauty, on target first delivery with the second new ball, angled across, good length, pitches just around off, swings in big time, and smacks him plumb in front, they discuss a review, and decide against it, with both reviews left, and a 28-over association at stake, Root walks off, it was that plumb, hitting off, say replays. 150/5
Tim Southee3067722.561459000
1.3 to NRD Compton, that is first strike for New Zealand, Southee on a good length, just outside off, straightening again, Compton half forward to push at it, and a thin edge is through to Watling, umpire Tucker asks umpire Reiffel at square leg whether it carried and raises the finger upon receiving confirmation. 2/1
85.5 to JM Bairstow, another edge, and Ross Taylor takes a dolly at first slip, Bairstow pushing at a length ball from the crease, Southee angled it in from wide of the pitch and got it to bounce and straighten a tad, Taylor made sure the bowler's effort did not go waste. 159/6
Bruce Martin39187401.8920411000
Neil Wagner2586122.441237000
23.4 to IJL Trott, huge wicket, Wagner strikes now, from round the stumps, angled in wide, and straightens, Trott decides to reach out and go for the drive, and the edge goes to Watling. 60/2
110.3 to IR Bell, New Zealand have the massive wicket in the last over before tea, Bell gave a chance last over before lunch, but it wasn't taken, this time Southee has plucked a low chance at third slip as easily as he bowls swing, Wagner squeezing out the push from Bell with a pitched up ball angled in, Bell has to go after playing out half a day worth of overs all by himself. 237/7
Kane Williamson2084442.201016000
48.3 to AN Cook, oh dear, Alastair Cook, that slow but sure destroyer of the world's best attacks, has fallen to the part-timer Williamson, he was looking more often than not to play outside off to KW, who floated this one up, Cook could not resist the drive, and the thick edge flew to Brownlie, who did extremely well to hang on to it at second slip. 90/3
52.1 to ST Finn, and another wicket for KW, nightwatchman falls to part-timer, goes reaching out to a widish one angled across, and the thick edge settles low into Southee's hands at gully, he is engulfed by fellow members of the close-in crowd. 90/4
139.3 to SCJ Broad, Kane Williamson brings New Zealand back, tossed up, Broad not as much forward as he would have liked to be, outside edge, straight and low to Taylor at first slip. 304/8
139.5 to JM Anderson, Kane Williamson, you little beauty, what an over this is, angled in, flighted, turns, Anderson pushes, and Taylor plucks another one low to his left at first slip, what a game, what a game. 304/9
