BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ryan McLaren402716.75135000
6.2 to JEC Franklin, another one goes, short of a length ball, attempted hook edged through to the wicketkeeper, replays show it came off the shoulder, could have brushed the glove, Franklin had a look at his shoulder before departing. 27/4
Dale Steyn301324.33111010
3.6 to PG Fulton, oh well, pitched up, swung, tamely and straight to mid on, who was placed a touch shortish. 19/2
17.1 to RM Hira, pitched up, he gets fron leg away and smashes it, straight to wide mid off. 81/9
Rory Kleinveldt3.211835.40144000
2.1 to RJ Nicol, and Kleinveldt strikes first ball, Nicol looking to step out and have a go for the third time, and Kleinveldt's bounce off a good length defeats him, de Kock snaps up the edge. 9/1
4.5 to BB McCullum, got the big one, a few tight deliveries was all it needed, short of a length once again from Kleinveldt, into the pads, McCullum swivels and swipes hard at it, top edge cannot evade the backpedalling short fine leg. 19/3
18.2 to MJ McClenaghan, this is a proper catch now, and the last NZ wicket falls to a botched pull off a good length delivery as well, straight to midwicket. 86/10
Chris Morris3.401925.18133010
7.3 to CJ Anderson, oh boy, coming apart for New Zealand now, standing in the crease and swatting a bouncing good length delivery straight to mid off, Morris gets his first international wicket, ball hit the bat close to the top. 34/5
11.6 to C Munro, sigh^infinity, they refuse to learn, opens up and swings at a slowish good length ball, vertical top edge comes down to the bowler. 60/8
Robin Peterson40822.00170000
8.5 to NL McCullum, this angled in even more, quite harmlessly and slowly it appeared at first, but Nathan backed away and went for the pull, missed, and was bowled, sigh, in his defence, the ball kept a tad low. 36/6
10.4 to JDS Neesham, chopped on, one of the last things New Zealand needed, made room for the cut, wasn't enough of it in the end, stays a touch low too, and he loses a bail. 54/7

Mitchell McClenaghan312016.66114000
0.5 to RE Levi, edged, and gone, McClenaghan strikes in his first over in international cricket, Levi did not look comfortable, another one angled across, he pushes tentatively at it, away from the body, thick edge carries safely to first slip. 0/1
Doug Bracewell2021010.5063110
Ronnie Hira301515.00102000
5.3 to H Davids, gone this time, Hira bowling it slower, tossing it up, Davids advances out again, trying to go over mid off/extra cover, misses, and is bowled. 45/2
