BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Danny Briggs403619.0084100
11.4 to KS Williamson, edged! Touch short from Briggs, Williamson eyed the chance to cut, but the ball skidded through and took the top edge. 67/4
Steven Finn401634.00162010
1.3 to MJ Guptill, pitched up and Guptill gets his feet in a tangle - that's out, lbw! Finn went full, fast and bang on off, the batsman took a half-step across and then couldn't get his bat down, banging into his boot as the ball struck pad. 7/1
3.4 to BB McCullum, and gone, sliced high to third man! McCullum has been snuffed out by Finn, the batsman took him on, couldn't control the shot and it soared high off the edge to Wright, who took a comfortable low catch. Went for the hurry-up but only hastened his demise. 20/2
16.2 to LRPL Taylor, a third for Finn. He's perhaps a touch fortunate because it was short outside off and Taylor picked out his favourite area towards deep midwicket but couldn't clear the man on the boundary. 107/5
Tim Bresnan402907.2571110
Graeme Swann402015.0071000
6.5 to RJ Nicol, Nicol goes for the six-hit to deep square leg that served him so well against Sri Lanka ... but this time he picks out the man on the fence! This pitch is a touch slower, the ball came off the toe of the bat rather than the meat and sailed to deep square, who set himself a few yards in from the boundary. 42/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kyle Mills402315.75143010
16.2 to EJG Morgan, wonderful catch! Morgan picked this up from off stump and connected well, but Bracewell made a lot of ground to his left at long-on and hurled himself under the catch. 127/3
Tim Southee2032016.0023200
Daniel Vettori402015.00101000
3.5 to C Kieswetter, tossed up and bowled him! Kieswetter flailed across the line but the delivery was too full to sweep, it dipped under the swinging blade and spread the stumps like a sunburst. 21/1
Nathan McCullum402215.5080110
6.2 to AD Hales, bowled him - he's now the leading wicket-taker again! This was flat, pushed through and gripping just a touch off the pitch, Hales left a gap as he advanced and swiped across the line and looked round to see leg stump rocking in the wind. 38/2
Rob Nicol302909.6651210
James Franklin1012012.0021100
Doug Bracewell0.50819.6011010
18.2 to LJ Wright, he's struck second ball, Wright slaps this straight to cover as he tried to give himself a touch of room to go through the off side. 142/4
