Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Calum MacLeod, 1.1 ov), 2-1 (Hamish Gardiner, 1.2 ov), 3-12 (Kyle Coetzer, 4.1 ov), 4-12 (Preston Mommsen, 4.2 ov), 5-109 (Matt Machan, 27.5 ov), 6-117 (Richie Berrington, 29.3 ov), 7-129 (Matthew Cross, 33.2 ov), 8-136 (Rob Taylor, 34.5 ov), 9-142 (Majid Haq, 36.1 ov), 10-142 (Iain Wardlaw, 36.2 ov)
4.1 to KJ Coetzer, full and straying down the pads as Coetzer picks out the short midwicket fielder, who takes it comfortably with a forward dive. Had the whole region to get this away, but finds the man instead. 12/3
4.2 to PL Mommsen, delivers another full delivery which angles in on the pads as this strikes in line, with this hitting the pad before going onto the bat. Looked good as soon as they went up for the appeal, with the umpire confirming the decision. Scotland, however, want to review. No issue with the no-ball, just a matter of this hitting the wickets with the original decision being out, and the replay shows that this indeed is clipping a good chunk of leg stump, so the Scottish captain must go. 12/4
1.1 to CS MacLeod, pitches this one on and around off as this bends back enough to crash into the front pad of MacLeod, who goes for a golden duck as he plays down the wrong line. Looked as plumb as you can get. New Zealand off to a fantastic start. 1/1
1.2 to HJW Gardiner, gropes forward to this fuller length which swings in a mile as Boult gets another, much to the delight of the University Oval. This one struck full on the front pad, and looked as good as out. After some deliberation, the umpire gives this out. Phenomenol start now as Boult is on a hat-trick. The wicket-pair pattern is happening again in this World Cup. 1/2
34.5 to RML Taylor, slides this one through the gate of Taylor as he advanced down the track. Beats him in the flight as he brought down the blade, with Ronchi alert to the situation as he whipped off the bails. Scotland sensing the end here as they slide further to 136 for 8. 136/8
36.1 to RM Haq, Vettori showing his experience as he gets Majid to feather a chance to this one spinning across to Taylor at slip to get NZ just one away from ending this innings prematurely for Scotland. 142/9
36.2 to I Wardlaw, strikes the batsman on the front pad as he lunged forward, with this one looking like it may have hit the pad first as it straightened, but the bat was very close to it. Appeal is denied by the umpire, but NZ want the review. Looks like it may have hit the pad first before going onto bat as there were two sounds there. The verdict has come in, and it shows that this indeed go on to hit the stumps, so it is all over for Scotland as their innings comes to a close at 142 all out. 142/10
27.5 to MW Machan, short on middle and leg as Machan has to go. Was not at all in control of this pull as he looked to go over midwicket, but gets a top-edge which goes straight up to mid-on, where McCullum is able to dive forward to complete the take. Ends a well-compiled 97-run stand for the fifth wicket as Bagpipes signal his exit. 109/5
29.3 to RD Berrington, short ball on middle and leg and Anderson proves he is worthy of the title of "Man with the Golden Arm" as Berrington top-edges this attempted hook high over fine leg, with the fielder in the deep able to get safely under it. 117/6
33.2 to MH Cross, Anderson must be wondering what the fuss is all about when it comes to this plucky Scotland side? McCullum probably regretting not bringing his burly all-rounder early as he succeeds in getting Cross to feather an edge over to Ronchi to this back of a length which just shapes away, with the keeper leaping in joy as he snaffled the chance. 129/7

TOTAL24.5 Ov (RR: 5.87, 103 Mins)146/7
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Martin Guptill, 2.4 ov), 2-48 (Brendon McCullum, 6.6 ov), 3-66 (Ross Taylor, 10.4 ov), 4-106 (Kane Williamson, 17.5 ov), 5-117 (Grant Elliott, 20.6 ov), 6-133 (Corey Anderson, 23.2 ov), 7-137 (Luke Ronchi, 23.4 ov)
2.4 to MJ Guptill, Wardlaw gets one early for Scotland as he persists with a fuller length just outside off which invites Guptill to have a go as he looked to lift over long off, but instead offers up an edge to the keeper behind. 18/1
6.6 to BB McCullum, Wardlaw picks up a big one as McCullum has to go after offering up an edge outside his off stump to the keeper. Looks like he was trying to run that one past the slip, but was late on the shot as the ball went off the outside edge to Cross. Not greeted with a lot of enthusiasm by the University Oval crowd though. 48/2
20.6 to GD Elliott, New Zealand five down now in this chase of 143 as Wardlaw bangs away in the same channel, this time getting the batsman to offer a thick outside edge as he looked to push at the ball, with Cross taking a straightforward catch behind. 117/5
17.5 to KS Williamson, Kane departs from the middle under a cloud of silence as he has a wild swing at this fuller length outside of off, which he ends up getting an inside-edge which carries all the way to Cross, who has to move low to his left to complete the take. Kane was unsure whether this had carried initially, before finally being given his marching orders by the umpire. 106/4
23.2 to CJ Anderson, and Wardlaw redeems himself after his earlier blunder at fine leg to remove the dangerous Corey Anderson, who top-edges this attempted flick through fine leg, with this one going higher than farther. Able to run to his right and take the catch in the end. 133/6
23.4 to L Ronchi, now Ronchi has to go as NZ are really making a shambles of this chase. Looking to get away as many hits as possible now to finish the game, but his aggressiveness spells his demise as he slams a high, straightforward catch to deep midwicket, who is able to take it quite comfortably in the end. 137/7
10.4 to LRPL Taylor, looking to get going after the break with a big heave over cow corner, but ends up going a long way in the air as the man in the deep is able to get under it and catch this safely. Taylor jogs off the park as Scotland claim a vital scalp. 66/3
