Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Matthew Bell, 15.3 ov), 2-45 (Stephen Fleming, 16.1 ov), 3-112 (Nathan Astle, 34.3 ov), 4-232 (Roger Twose, 76.6 ov), 5-239 (Matt Horne, 84.4 ov), 6-242 (Craig McMillan, 85.4 ov), 7-275 (Adam Parore, 93.6 ov), 8-345 (Chris Cairns, 110.5 ov), 9-351 (Daniel Vettori, 115.5 ov), 10-358 (Dion Nash, 119.1 ov)
16.1 to SP Fleming, faint nick, Read went a long way.. moved across his stumps nice take by Read. 45/2
34.3 to NJ Astle, gloved down legside and another batsman goes in this fashion. 112/3
85.4 to CD McMillan, outside the off, McMillan is drawn forward and edges to Read who takes an easy catch. 242/6
93.6 to AC Parore, inside edge onto offstump. 275/7
110.5 to CL Cairns, brilliant yorker, straight on the foot, rolls down to off stump and nudges it a bit - enough to dislodge the bail and another well deserved wicket for Caddick. 345/8
15.3 to MD Bell, . 43/1
76.6 to RG Twose, . 232/4
84.4 to MJ Horne, yorker length ball, Horne brings his bat down hard and the outside edge goes to Husssain in the slips who takes a good catch. 239/5
115.5 to DL Vettori, wide of off, Vettori goes for a drive, edges onto Read's gloves and the ball bounces behind Thorpe standing at the slip. Thorpe turns around, moves to the ball and takes a well judged catch. 351/9
119.1 to DJ Nash, as I was saying that, Nash comes down and slashes at the ball, to Mullally, deep on the off at thirdman. 358/10

64.6 to DW Headley, edged and taken well at 1st slip by Fleming, played without moving the feet. 123/5
68.5 to A Habib, played away from the body, edged an easy dolly to Astle at slips. 127/6
101.4 to AR Caddick, edged to Fleming at first slip. you can't rule it but out. 229/9
36.1 to GP Thorpe, guess what, we knew this was going to happen. yorker, stumps and trouble.. slow yorker on the off as Thorpe without his eyes settled just mindlessly comes forward, misses the line and is bowled Habib hasn't done much before. This time he needs to and so much more will be expected of Read as well. 78/3
97.2 to AD Mullally, slightly pitched up while Mullally was expecting a short ball, spoons it to Twose at covers. 216/8
21.3 to MA Butcher, tries to sweep, top edge and Astle runs back a few yards and takes a well judged catch (ran back from first slip) as Duane celebrates. 55/1
35.2 to AJ Stewart, on his knees, goes for a pull, but look what happened? he missed the ball completely as the ball spins from outside the leg stump onto the off stump!. 71/2
94.2 to CMW Read, ball kept low, straight on the stumps and poor Read has to go. sad dismissal and Read couldn't have done much about it. 205/7
47.5 to MR Ramprakash, too wide a ball and Ramprakash falls for this cheap trick, edges to Parore. Koertzen waits for Ramp himself to walk away but seeing that he is still rooted to the crease, nods his head first and then lifts his dreaded finger. 97/4
