Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Shaun Marsh, 6.3 ov), 2-23 (David Warner, 8.5 ov), 3-27 (Ricky Ponting, 10.3 ov), 4-51 (Michael Clarke, 17.5 ov), 5-54 (David Hussey, 19.1 ov), 6-115 (Brad Haddin, 34.6 ov), 7-152 (Michael Hussey, 43.1 ov), 8-153 (James Hopes, 43.4 ov), 9-154 (Nathan Bracken, 44.3 ov), 10-181 (Mitchell Johnson, 48.4 ov)
6.3 to SE Marsh, Marsh is gone, he chips a length delivery to the two-metre tall Peter Fulton at short cover, Fulton had to jump to hold on to that chance, good reflexes from Fulton, Marsh had looked in good touch during his short stay. 20/1
8.5 to DA Warner, Warner's gone, similar dismissal to Marsh's, shortish ball, gave Warner room to free his arms, he cuts it but gives Fulton at short cover a much simple catch, Fulton didn't have to move and that came to him at a nice catchable height, around his chest. 23/2
34.6 to BJ Haddin, dragged on! Haddin advances to a full one just outside off stump and goes for a drive but can only succeed in inside-edging back onto his stumps and Mills celebrates. 115/6
48.4 to MG Johnson, and that's the end of the innings, Johnson goes for a big swipe over midwicket, doesn't make contact with the ball, which homes in on the leg bail, Australia fold for 181. 181/10
44.3 to NW Bracken, Bracken's lbw this time, he was attempting to work that towards midwicket, hit him in front of middle, looked out, though Hawkeye suggests it might have just gone down leg. 154/9
43.1 to MEK Hussey, first ball of the Powerplay gets a wicket, Hussey has to go, he tried to chip a length ball over the infield, mid-off was on the edge of the circle, and it's a simple catch for him, Hussey's innings ends at 49. 152/7
43.4 to JR Hopes, Hopes is gone, both the settled batsmen are dismissed in the same over, he was trying to slam that over the covers, gets a top edge which balloons in the air for a dolly to Vettori to mid-off. 153/8
19.1 to DJ Hussey, strikes first ball, David Hussey's caught behind down the legside, short and angling down, goes for a paddle-pull, McCullum moves over to the leg side to take the catch, David Hussey's furious with the decision. 54/5

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Brendon McCullum, 0.2 ov), 2-25 (Martin Guptill, 10.2 ov), 3-25 (Peter Fulton, 13.2 ov), 4-64 (Grant Elliott, 22.3 ov), 5-106 (Neil Broom, 35.2 ov), 6-168 (Kyle Mills, 46.3 ov), 7-170 (Ross Taylor, 47.3 ov), 8-178 (Tim Southee, 49.2 ov)
0.2 to BB McCullum, McCullum's gone lbw this time, stunning start from Tait, that was 145.7 kmh, McCullum went on the backfoot to defend, hits his pads in front, umpire didn't spot a huge inside edge. 0/1
46.3 to KD Mills, he gets a little too cheeky and loses his wicket, he makes way too much room and exposes all three stumps, Tait fires in a fast yorker and hits the middle stump, now will this wicket change things a bit?. 168/6
10.2 to MJ Guptill, bowled em! Bracken strikes with a full delivery that pitches on off stump and hurries Guptill into a loose defensive push, but he's very late on the shot and the ball nips back in and draws the faintest of inside edges back onto the stumps. 25/2
47.3 to LRPL Taylor, a fabulous catch by Clarke and we have a twist in the tale here, Bracken pitches it up outside off, he walks across his stumps, reaches forward and slices it on the up to backward point, Clarke flings himself to his left and cups it with both hands. 170/7
49.2 to TG Southee, timber! Bracken bowls that deadly off cutter and Southee fails to pick the slower ball, he exposes his leg stump and tries to heave it away over square leg as the ball thuds on to his middle stump. 178/8
13.2 to PG Fulton, well held, Mitchell! A very scratchy innings comes to an end courtesy a superb reflex catch from Johnson, who pitches it up on off stump and then sticks out his left hand as he tumbles down in his followthrough, plucking the checked off-drive back in the air rather excellently. 25/3
22.3 to GD Elliott, easy catch! Hopes pitches it on a length, Elliott drives on the rise to short cover, where Mike Hussey falls to his right and intercepts the shot, that was like catching practice. 64/4
35.2 to NT Broom, Australia claw back, now there's a bit of controversy here, Clarke gets it to skid through on a good length, Broom makes a lot of room to cut but he's beaten for pace, the ball appears to clip the top of the off bail but replays indicate that Haddin had his gloves in front of the stumps before the ball could make contact. Did the ball actually hit the stumps? Did Haddin whip off the bails by mistake? Very inconclusive but no wonder Broom looked perplexed as he walked back. 106/5
