Mitchell McClenaghan402426.00123020
4.4 to Q de Kock, caught by mid off fielder at long on! Wow. de Kock went for the big shot down the ground to this fuller delivery on the off stump line, but got under it too much. That went miles in the air and Corey Anderson runs in from mid-off to slide in take that comfortably around the long-on area. Zooper catch!. 26/2
16.3 to H Davids, caught at deep midwicket! Davids finally finds a fielder. It was a length ball on off and the batsman half-flicks it towards deep midwicket, the timing on that taking it as far as the fielder in deep. 135/4
Ronnie Hira412416.0080100
1.5 to F du Plessis, yorks himself! Faf's disappointed for missing out as he was the batsman in form. It was a flighted delivery on the middle stump line, the batsman took a couple of steps down the pitch, but the ball drifts in and the batsman yorks himself. It hits the pads and then disturbs the stumps.. 2/1
Nathan McCullum302709.0042100
James Franklin3030110.0041200
14.5 to JL Ontong, and he runs out of luck this time. Another slower ball outside off, the batsman tries to send it out of the ground but only gets it as far as extra cover.. 115/3
Doug Bracewell3035211.6655110
19.5 to DA Miller, caught at deep square leg! That is catch No. 4 for Corey James Anderson. It was a short ball going outside off with the angle, but Miller tries to pull it to deep midwicket boundary, gets a top-edge and Anderson settles under is nicely.. 179/5
19.6 to F Behardien, caught at fine leg! short ball on the body, the batsman swivels to play a hook shot that goes straight to the fielder at fine leg, it's not Anderson, it's Mitchell M. Bracewell will be on a hat-trick next time (next year). 179/6

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Rob Nicol, 0.4 ov), 2-53 (Martin Guptill, 6.6 ov), 3-56 (Brendon McCullum, 8.3 ov), 4-60 (Colin Munro, 9.4 ov), 5-84 (James Franklin, 12.3 ov), 6-87 (James Neesham, 13.1 ov), 7-116 (Corey Anderson, 16.4 ov), 8-116 (Nathan McCullum, 16.5 ov), 9-137 (Ronnie Hira, 19.2 ov)
Ryan McLaren402536.25103010
0.4 to RJ Nicol, that is close, and that is gone, McLaren is pumped, Nicol caught on the pad on the forward defensive push, it was a length ball angled in, looked gone on first view, need to wait for replays, he wasn't too far forward when he was hit, in line with the stumps, not much doubt in that. 6/1
9.4 to C Munro, New Zealand falling apart here, nothing shot from Munro, he stepped out this time, McLaren kept it short of a good length, Munro stopped, and was in no position to play an aggressive stroke, cramped for room, and ends up edging it to the keeper. 60/4
16.5 to NL McCullum, another one goes, McCullum standing outside leg as usual, cuts the offcutter over point, sweeper makes ground to his left, and takes a tumbling catch. 116/8
Robin Peterson302418.0093100
13.1 to JDS Neesham, what a take, Morne Morkel, big man, throws himself to his left at short third man to pouch what was a quite cleanly struck reverse sweep, it was travelling but Morne pounced on it. 87/6
Morne Morkel403709.2596010
Rory Kleinveldt402516.25103010
19.2 to RM Hira, that will be the end of the fun for Hira, swats a full toss straight to long on, they check for the no-ball, Kleinveldt is safe, by an inch or so. 137/9
Aaron Phangiso402536.25102100
6.6 to MJ Guptill, oh dear me, what a waste of a wicket, it was angled in and was headed comfortably down the leg side, till Guptill decided he wanted to help it to the fine leg rope, but his paddle ends up as a tame edge in midwicket's hands, hit the toe end, Phangiso has his first international wicket after being expensive in the previous game. 53/2
8.3 to BB McCullum, New Zealand's chances slipping away now, McCullum jumps out again, and drills the ball flat and straight to the man at wide long off, Phangiso has got two huge wickets in four balls. 56/3
12.3 to JEC Franklin, third for Phangiso as Franklin comes down, has a swing and picks out long on. 84/5
