Geoff Allott1031531.50501010
6.6 to G Salmond, swinging down the line and into the pads, pitched up, long appeal, Koertzen succumbs to the plead, ball would've hit middle and leg. 11/2
10.1 to MJD Allingham, simply pathetic, the lamest of nudge to the 1st slip, appeared to want to glide it to the 3rd man, but there's 2 slips! got what he deserved anyway. 12/3
26.4 to JE Brinkley, pushing across the line outside the off stump, a reasonable thick edge on it, Parore with an excellent diving catch in front of the 1st slip, very well taken. 68/5
Dion Nash1031611.60471001
3.4 to MJ Smith, woeful drive, chipped up in the air, easy catch for Cairns moving around from the mid on. 2/1
Carl Bulfin603105.16224021
Chris Cairns802613.25340031
27.2 to IM Stanger, ball is swinging in, Stanger with a clanger, playing down the wrong line, ball grabs the outside edge and lands in the delicate underbelly of Astle at 1st slip, woof. 68/6
Nathan Astle511813.60270120
24.4 to GM Hamilton, misplays a poor drive, floats away on the on side, and easily caught at the mid wicket area. 66/4
Chris Harris3.10742.21150010
35.1 to JG Williamson, easy as you like, deceives the batsman with a little pace, pushed back to the bowler, one of the more easier catches you're ever likely to see. 100/7
35.2 to JAR Blain, and another one bites the dust, trying the forward defence, misses, into the leading pad, Robinson rules in favour of the appeal. 100/8
37.2 to Asim Butt, going for another big shot, swipes over the mid wicket from outside the off stump, Twose positions himself well to collect it at deep mid wicket. 110/9
42.1 to AG Davies, trying to loft over the covers, not played well, Vettori gets to make a cameo appearence, New Zealand must chase 122 in 21.2 overs. 121/10

John Blain705337.57235023
0.2 to MN Hart, and so ends the great openign the batting experiment, bowled around his legs, not anywhere near it. 0/1
2.3 to NJ Astle, what a disaster area of a player, swinging outside the off stump, looking for the big heave ho over the extra cover, feathers and edge to the keeper. 19/2
12.6 to SP Fleming, playing for the nudge thru the covers, bottom edge, into the stumps, Fleming stops celebrating. 92/4
Asim Butt503306.60172121
Gavin Hamilton5.503415.82183100
11.5 to CD McMillan, utterly misjudging the pace of it, ball rebounds off the bat and floats to the bowler, McMillan just trying some forward defence. 81/3
