James Franklin10606.0020000
Tim Southee403117.75114001
3.4 to BJ Haddin, taken this time, and what a ball to get a wicket! Southee sends down a full toss, Haddin walks into the shot and hits the ball back over the bowler, who cups it up in the air and then takes it on the second attempt, to his right .. Haddin can't believe he's bunted a full toss back to Southee. 34/1
Iain O'Brien403428.5075000
4.3 to DA Warner, again back of a length outside off stump, and Warner can only thump it to mid-off's lap, its the captain himself who pouches it in his lap. 38/2
18.4 to CL White, up, up, up ... and ... into orbit ... it going, going, and ... oh well held Vettori! White heaves at another length ball on the stumps, sending it miles up into the evening sky, looks to be lost up there but the captain settles under it and takes a great catch just inside the ropes at deep midwicket. 135/6
Ian Butler403017.5061110
6.6 to CJ Ferguson, timber! Butler pitches it up on the stumps, very full and into the block hole, Ferguson walks away and swings, no contact made, and the base of the stumps is shattered. 52/3
Daniel Vettori402315.7560000
17.2 to DJ Hussey, tosses it up on a length, slowing the pace, David sashays down and ends up chipping the ball up in the air, Broom steadies himself under it down the ground on the off side and takes it simply enough. 128/5
Nathan McCullum201407.0021000
Grant Elliott1011111.0010100
14.5 to AC Voges, gets across his stumps and tries to paddle an overpitched delivery, but doesn't manage to get bat on ball and so Elliott traps Voges in front of about leg stump. 104/4

Peter Siddle402426.00113010
0.4 to MJ Guptill, good length on the off stump and angling into the right hander, tried to drive it off the front foot, missed it completely and was struck in line with middle. The umpire had no hesitation there, that looked plumb!. 5/1
2.2 to PG Fulton, short of a good length on middle and off, tries to turn it away off the back foot towards square leg, gets the top edge and Haddin takes a dolly behind the wickets.. 12/2
Nathan Bracken411604.00161100
Ben Hilfenhaus403218.0093110
18.1 to BB McCullum, Superb catch! Could that be the decisive moment?? Full outside off, struck away straight to Voges at long-on, he takes it just inside the ropes but loses his balance, throws the ball up in the air to ensure he doesn't carry it over the boundary, trips on the way forward but retains his composure to pouch it comfortably back again, kept his cool throughout there and has possibly turned the match in Australia's favour here. 131/4
James Hopes4040110.0075100
10.4 to NT Broom, goes for a slog over midwicket despite not being there to the pitch, gets the top-edge, Callum Ferguson runs in from deep midwicket to take a well-judged catch as it took ages to come down. 73/3
