Shane Bond1007317.302811032
9.5 to GC Smith, Bond gains revenge on Smith, belatedly, digs in a short ball, is rather straight, Smith tries to hoist it over midwicket but then seems to drag the shot squarer, ends up skying it a mile in the air over the keeper's head, McCullum races back and gloves it very well, not an easy catch to take even with the gloves on, McCullum always looked safe underneath it, and New Zealand get a much needed breakthrough after a crashing start by the home team. 60/1
Andre Adams905716.33338140
48.2 to SM Pollock, a high full toss following Pollock down the leg side, gets right under it, too far under it, lofts it very high, drops straight to Oram waiting on the circle edge at midwicket to complete an easy catch. 287/6
Jacob Oram805226.50266131
43.2 to MV Boucher, Boucher tries to match Gibbs but can't quite do so, fullish ball and lofts it a long, long way in the air, too high for his own liking, down to Cairns at long on, who takes it head high and tumbles backwards to the turf, but safely inside the boundary rope. 243/4
45.2 to HH Gibbs, but he holes out this time, shortish ball on off stump, pulls strongly, hard and flat over midwicket, but straight to McMillan on the boundary, walks off to a standing ovation. 260/5
Scott Styris1004414.40364110
23.2 to N Boje, fine bowling! Styris sneaks one straight through Boje, on a good length, straightening off the seam, Boje was well forward looking to drive but plays down the wrong line as a result, through the gate and is clean bowled. 126/2
Daniel Vettori1005815.80254200
38.1 to JH Kallis, and he strikes first ball! Kallis tries to force the pace, advances to a flighted ball on leg stump, giving himself some room but scoops it firmly straight to Vincent at extra cover for a simple catch. 193/3

14.1 to CD McMillan, but this time the breakthough is made and Boucher makes no mistake, very full just outside off stump, drives hard at it but only gets a thin edge straight through to the keeper, and boy is Donald ecstatic about that!. 89/1
