Shaun Pollock402837.00121210
2.2 to BB McCullum, shot! But caught! He absolutely nailed that on the front foot; a crunching, satisfying crack of the bat, but the ball found cover who didn't need to move a muscle, taking an easy catch in front of his nose. 14/1
4.6 to JM How, gone this time. Poor shot; he tried to smack this over long-on but got a leading edge to mid-off who swallowed a simple skier. 34/2
14.3 to DL Vettori, short, he tries to pull it but gets a top edge to Morkel at mid-on who back-peddles nicely to take a tumbling catch. New Zealand are finished. 84/6
Dale Steyn401714.25121000
16.2 to SB Styris, oh, well caught Smith! Styris thumped this on the front foot, timing it very well but Smith, at mid-off, timed his leap to his left perfectly to clutch a fine catch above his head. 98/7
Charl Langeveldt403308.2591230
Albie Morkel402927.25112120
6.4 to LRPL Taylor, fine bowling from Morkel! That's the length on this pitch; it's got plenty of bounce and the taller bowlers are extracting it. It rises on Taylor who fends it straight to first slip. 45/3
12.3 to GJ Hopkins, oh dear. A meaningless shot to a poor, wide delivery outside off. He just patted it to point who scooped it up at ankle height to take an easy catch. A clueless stroke, really; rather like a coach might angle his bat to give the slips catching practice. 78/5
Johan Botha401914.75101000
9.6 to L Vincent, got him! A reverse sweep from Vincent to a straight, full ball which raps him on the toe and that's bang in front of middle. What an awful, hopeless shot that was. 66/4

Kyle Mills3.503418.86105100
4.6 to GC Smith, goddim! Smith's poor run of form continues as he plays a horrid, cross-batted stroke and gets a thick outside edge to McCullum. 33/2
Mark Gillespie402215.50153020
1.4 to JH Kallis, goddim! A straight bouncer from Gillespie which Kallis hooks straight down fine-leg's throat. 6/1
Daniel Vettori402416.00101100
8.6 to JP Duminy, gone! Very well bowled from Vettori, beating Duminy in the flight. He came prancing down the pitch, was beaten by the turn and McCullum does the rest.. 64/3
Michael Mason302809.3331101
Jeetan Patel401724.25120100
12.3 to MV Boucher, he's got him! Boucher went for the sweep, was beaten by the turn and up goes the finger. He is decidedly unhappy. 89/4
14.3 to SM Pollock, gone! Taylor's taken a blinder at deep midwicket, as Pollock tried to pull this but couldn't time it. Taylor, crouching low, took it inches above the turf and a metre inside the rope. 103/5
Scott Styris10414.0030000
17.2 to JA Morkel, gone, beaten by the offie! Morkel mistimes it straight to Vettori at cover. A wasteful stroke, frankly. 116/6
