Tim Southee402025.0080010
4.3 to MDKJ Perera, full toss outside off and would you believe it, he's it hit it straight down mid-off's throat. Went deep in his crease but got it off the bottom of the bat, couldn't quite get the elevation and he picks out CDG. 41/1
16.1 to BKG Mendis, superb catch in the deep from Guptill. The slower ball was in the slot for Mendis, he picked it up and lofted it high on leg, but Guptill judged it very well to stay inside the deep midwicket boundary and even dive backwards to grab it with both hands. 131/3
Seth Rance4058014.5044400
Scott Kuggeleijn201708.5032010
Mitchell Santner402215.5081000
9.1 to WIA Fernando, this was on the cards and Santner, after toying with Fernando last over, gets his man! He gave his intention away early as he danced down the wicket, Santner cleverly shortened his length and fired it outside off, Fernando missed and the keeper did the rest. 68/2

Lasith Malinga402325.75130110
0.4 to C Munro, vintage Malinga and the stumps knocked out! He pushed those fielders back on the leg side and let the old yorker rip, swinging back in from around off, and crashes into middle. 1/1
13.3 to C de Grandhomme, right through him, bowled with a yorker! Malinga has done it, the breakthrough ends this rapid stand. De Grandhomme was looking to work the ball to leg but it dipped, swung late and hit the base of middle and leg stumps. 118/4
Akila Dananjaya3030110.0051210
3.2 to MJ Guptill, full around off, it was nicely tossed up, Guptill picked the right ball for the slog sweep but top edged it as it bounced a little extra, it nearly popped out of the hands of the fielder in the deep but he held on on the second attempt. 18/2

Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402125.25102000
7.2 to TL Seifert, wicket second ball for the debutant! Not the best delivery he'll bowl, it was short outside off, but he probably meant to push it wide with Seifert looking for the sweep first ball, went for the cut this time but only managed an edge to the keeper. The mounting required rate was always going to bring the spinner into play. 39/3
16.5 to LRPL Taylor, swipes completely across the line, he's been given lbw, Taylor reviews! The ball turned after pitching for sure and struck him right in front of the stumps. The question is if it pitched in line because there's no edge. Here's ball-tracking: pitches in line, hitting in line and rattling middle stump. 144/5
