Fall of wickets: 1-124 (David Warner, 24.1 ov), 2-145 (Aaron Finch, 28.4 ov), 3-146 (Steven Smith, 30.4 ov), 4-165 (D'Arcy Short, 34.3 ov), 5-224 (Mitchell Marsh, 45.3 ov), 6-226 (Alex Carey, 45.6 ov), 7-248 (Marnus Labuschagne, 49.1 ov)
24.1 to DA Warner, short, and he looks to pull, but gets the top edge. Taken at mid-on. Ferguson's extra pace makes the difference, as this gets to Warner quicker than he expects. He had played a similar rushed shot in Ferguson's previous over, but was able to get it beyond the infield. This time, the edge carries it in the air, and allows Sodhi to move a couple of steps forward and pouch this catch. 124/1
49.1 to M Labuschagne, sliced to backward point. That's smart bowling. It's a full toss, but it's in the 120s, it's a legcutter. On off stump. Backs into the leg side and looks to slug that, but he's lost his shape. He's a very tired man, had to do a lot of running today. Good innings. 248/7
28.4 to AJ Finch, tossed up, a bit of turn and bite, and Finch looks to drive. Latham catches it, then seems to have it slip out, but grabs it on the rebound. Feather-edge through on this, and Finch walks away disappointed with himself. Good time for New Zealand to remove the other well-set batsman!. 145/2
30.4 to SPD Smith, got 'im! Superb left-arm spin bowling from Santner, as he gets Smith to add to the scalp of Finch. Just accurate, nagging bowling on a length, and turns enough to beat an attempted back foot drive from Smith, and clip the top of off. Is this pitch just holding up a bit? In which case, a great call for New Zealand to have picked the two specialist spinners. 146/3
34.3 to DJM Short, oh, Short, what have you done! It's another drag-down from Sodhi, and Short goes back to pull, but cannot keep it down. Straight down the throat of mid-wicket. 165/4
45.3 to MR Marsh, taken at extra cover! Sodhi takes the cue from Santner, goes full, slow, and wide. Marsh is a tall man, but without a stride at this, even he has to reach out and have a weak flap. Lobs gently for the fielder there. 224/5
45.6 to AT Carey, taken by short fine, running to his right. A full toss, top-edged as he looked to paddle it. On leg stump, down early, so that might have been pre-meditated. Boult takes some long strides to his right and holds on. 226/6

TOTAL41 Ov (RR: 4.56)187
Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Henry Nicholls, 9.4 ov), 2-64 (Kane Williamson, 19.2 ov), 3-69 (Ross Taylor, 20.3 ov), 4-82 (Martin Guptill, 22.2 ov), 5-96 (James Neesham, 24.6 ov), 6-147 (Tom Latham, 32.3 ov), 7-160 (Colin de Grandhomme, 35.3 ov), 8-170 (Mitchell Santner, 37.5 ov), 9-180 (Lockie Ferguson, 39.6 ov), 10-187 (Trent Boult, 40.6 ov)
9.4 to HM Nicholls, there's the breakthrough! Hazlewood bowls one slightly fuller, and just around off. Nicholls looks for the drive, but gets a substantial edge as he does so. Carey goes low to his left and takes a good catch. Important reward for some really disciplined stuff from the Australian seamers. 28/1
32.3 to TWM Latham, oh, the drinks break does the trick! Dug in a touch short, angling in from around the wicket, and Latham tries to swing this away towards deep square leg. D'Arcy Short moves in from the deep, standing about three-quarters of the way to the boundary, and takes it easily. 147/6
22.2 to MJ Guptill, taken at backward point! Goes on the up once more but this time he won't survive. Short of a length, sticking in the pitch again. Smith leaps to his left and grabs on to it. Not at all an easy shot on this pitch. Cummins was brought on for just this. New Zealand sliding big time. 82/4
24.6 to JDS Neesham, taken by the keeper. Another awkward response to a short ball from Neesham, and it's pinged off the shoulder of the bat and gone straight to Carey. Short ball at the ribs. Takes his eyes off and is looking at the floor as he fends at this. Had no chance. 96/5
40.6 to TA Boult, short, off the top edge, and Cummins calls it. And he takes it as well, right by Boult! Fist bump from the batsman, and Cummins completes part of what has been a complete and professional performance. 187/10
20.3 to LRPL Taylor, straight to mid-on! Length ball outside off, steps out and looks to slap that on the rise. He's through it early, it comes off the inside part of the bat and is regulation for the fielder there. Almost a harried innings from Taylor, was looking to take risks almost every ball that it lasted. Marsh is rewarded for his persistent wicket-to-wicket bowling. 69/3
37.5 to MJ Santner, Marsh has another one! Length ball, and just holds up a bit in the pitch. Not a particular change of pace, but he looks to go over long-on, but ends up playing down his throat. Perhaps timed it a bit too well, but with batsmen running out at the other end, Santner perhaps thought he needed to be the one chancing his arm a bit more. 170/8
39.6 to LH Ferguson, Marsh hits the top of off! Length, and the line just enough to hit the stumps, and that sums up how well Australia have bowled to a plan. Not much room, nor enough length to hit through or across the line. Ferguson goes for an almighty heave, and just hears the rattle of the ball brush the bail on its way through. 180/9
19.2 to KS Williamson, wow! Stunning delivery. Zampa bursts through WIlliamson's defences with a googly. Length outside off, draws him a long way forward. Not sure if he picked that or not - he looked to flick but the bat was well away from the body. Through the gap goes Zampa and knocks the stumps. Dip and deception.. 64/2
35.3 to C de Grandhomme, fuller ball, and he whips this away, but straight to Starc at wide long-on! This is good bowling from Zampa again, as he gave this some extra flight and invited the big shot. Colin de Grandhomme took the bait, but also got a bit of the toe end of the bat. Starc takes a good catch, running away and bending to his right. Seems to have hurt a finger in his right hand, and is jogging off for some treatment. 160/7
