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
401714.25121000
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

402927.25112120
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
401914.75101000
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

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

1.4 to JH Kallis, goddim! A straight bouncer from Gillespie which Kallis hooks straight down fine-leg's throat. 6/1

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

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

17.2 to JA Morkel, gone, beaten by the offie! Morkel mistimes it straight to Vettori at cover. A wasteful stroke, frankly. 116/6
