Ravi Rampaul23.194421.891176010
114.2 to DG Brownlie, what a reply, there's no swing but a bit of away movement helps, Brownlie pushed at that goodish length ball in the channel from the crease and very loosely, got a thin edge straight to Ramdin. 281/7
129.1 to DAJ Bracewell, Bracewell holes out, was on a good length and Bracewell went downtown, looking to clear long-on but wasn't as well connected, Chanderpaul back-pedalled, kept his eyes on the ball and took a well-judged catch. 351/10
Kemar Roach2385522.391188005
49.6 to BB McCullum, McCullum has to go, pitched up from Roach, was wide and he went after it, it was there to hit but he couldn't keep it down, struck it hard but struck it straight to mid-off where Narsingh Deonarine held on to a sharp chance. 133/2
109.1 to KS Williamson, Williamson goes, he'd looked pretty well set but has got an inside edge back onto the stumps, bowled from wide of the crease from Roach, short of a good length, got on the back foot to defend but played on, may have been a bit of inward movement off the pitch. 273/6
Daren Sammy2677612.9212813000
121.5 to DL Vettori, Vettori goes! Sammy gets a breakthrough, Vettori shaped up for a pull, that was bowled short by Sammy, perhaps the shot was on but he wasn't on the mark to play it, was probably a little late and ended up gifting a catch to midwicket. 308/8
Sunil Narine43913253.0620318301
38.3 to DR Flynn, gone, Narine gets his first Test wicket. The short ball costs Flynn his wicket even though he's been quite comfortable against those so far, short outside off, there was turn and bounce and it was the bounce that did the trick for the bowler, Flynn went for the cut but didn't make good contact, spooned an easy catch to point. 97/1
84.1 to LRPL Taylor, Narine gets his man! Not the delivery he would have expected to dismiss Taylor, short this time, he moved back to jab it towards square leg, struck him on the glove and then rolled back onto the stumps. 223/3
86.3 to MJ Guptill, Guptill is distraught, he had a hundred for the taking there but he's thrown it away. The nerves got to him, the urge to get a century quickly, before stumps, failed him. Tossed up by Narine and he went for the big one, went for the slog-sweep, got a top-edge, was a conventional offspinner, Deonarine made no mistake snapping the skier at mid-on. 228/4
92.1 to N Wagner, Wagner didn't have much of an idea about that, done in by the turn and bounce, shortish on the off and spins away sharply, tries to defend that off the back foot but is surprised by how that ball spat off the pitch, took the glove and second slip made no mistake, four for Narine. 233/5
122.6 to CFK van Wyk, that's gone, five for Narine! Turned in from outside off, he tried to close the face, got an inside edge onto the top of the pad and short leg had a comfortable catch to take. 309/9

Chris Martin30913434.4613122103
101.6 to MN Samuels, bowled'im! Martin strikes, he's had a disappointing time with the ball, goodish length outside off, moved back in a hint, Samuels got forward to defend, played it lazily, got an inside edge onto the stumps. 355/3
103.1 to S Chanderpaul, Chanders goes first ball, Martin gets two in quick time and Chanders is a huge wicket, banged in short outside off and he plays at it, tried to knock it down but got a glove to it and Kruger made no mistake, New Zealand are fighting back. 355/4
151.6 to N Deonarine, Deonarine will be disappointed, pushed at that one loosely, on a good length outside off and he looked to just push it into the off side, the ball did nothing, just took the inside edge and landed on the stumps. 497/7
Doug Bracewell29.359623.2513213100
134.1 to D Ramdin, Ramdin is bowled! A wicket for Bracewell, short outside off, was a loosener from Bracewell, Ramdin went for the pull, dragged it back onto the stumps. 428/6
163.3 to R Rampaul, appeal for lbw, gets it to nip back in, New Zealand have called for a review, short of a good length, gets on the back foot to defend, is struck high on the pads, in line with leg stump. Was it too high? The pitch-map will clear things for us. It's out, Reiffel's decision will have to be overturned, would have taken out leg comfortably tells us the replay. 522/10
Neil Wagner33811213.3915520100
88.4 to KOA Powell, Wagner gets his first Test wicket, slipped in a wide delivery with a bit of away movement, Powell got a bit carried away there, went after that one, seeking to repeat what he'd done off the first three balls, got a faint nick through to the keeper. 304/2
Daniel Vettori511412412.4324811500
158.3 to DJG Sammy, Vettori gets his first wicket in his 49th over, tried a slog-sweep this time, got a top-edge and Vettori called, running back and then to his right, keeping his eyes on the ball and diving to complete the catch. 516/9
Kane Williamson2024722.35850200
75.2 to CH Gayle, Gayle goes, New Zealand have struck, finally. Not sure if the previous ball was playing on his mind, that one was fuller, Gayle got forward and tried to clear long-off but could not, didn't strike it well enough and found a cal McCullum in the deep. 254/1
127.5 to AB Fudadin, Fudadin goes! McCullum back-pedalled and took a well-judged catch, tossed up, there was a deepish mid-off in place, Fudadin wanted to clear that fielder but didn't strike it well, McCullum kept his eyes on that one and fell behind after snapping it. 410/5

Ravi Rampaul1735223.058310000
91.4 to DG Brownlie, Rampaul joins the party, Brownlie joins the procession, pitched on off side and forced the batsman to play, Brownlie decides unwisely to play it from the crease, doesn't get forward enough, he nicks it through to Gayle at slip, who for a moment seemed like shelling that, but he hangs on, Rampaul punches the air. 225/7
99.4 to DL Vettori, terrific delivery from Rampaul, West Indies take another stride towards a rare Test victory, back of length ball and Vettori looks to push that to the off side, pokes at it and edges through to the keeper, New Zealand eight down. 251/8
Kemar Roach23.246052.571086004
57.5 to BB McCullum, Roach has struck, a crucial blow, nothing in this pitch for the fast men but he's dragged it on, short of a good length, McCullum looked to cut it but got an inside edge onto the stumps. He's played that shot well, was visibly upset as he walked back, knew he should have stuck and taken his side to safety on this track. 194/3
74.3 to LRPL Taylor, Roach has done it, gets Taylor lbw, hang on, it is being reviewed, a short of length ball that pitched outside off and angled in, Taylor is struck low on the pads as he misses that one, was that going to miss leg stump? stick with the umpire's call, says the replay, Bye bye Taylor. 217/4
76.1 to KS Williamson, Roach is on fire here, Williamson gone for a duck, no reprise of his Wellington heroics, short of length ball that straightens a touch, Williamson expects it to be on middle stump line, he looks to defend down the track, the ball was seeking off stump and finds it, this match has come alive. 217/5
90.3 to N Wagner, takes only three deliveries for the new ball and Roach to strike, Wagner's long vigil is over, length ball just outside off, Wagner was looking to drive, thin outside edge and through to Ramdin, 103 deliveries Wagner faced, he's done his job but NZ still in big trouble. 225/6
105.2 to CFK van Wyk, five for Roach, what a year he is having in Test cricket, he has cleaned up van Wyk, the batsman skipped down the track and look to chop the ball towards cover, he misses and that rattles the stumps, a double-fist pump from Roach before he sticks his hand up with his fingersoutstretched to signal the five-for. 272/10
Sunil Narine42139132.162008000
10.4 to DR Flynn, that should be out! Narine pushed him back, bowling it on a good length, and got it to turn away just a hint, was still the offspinner, rocked back, missed and was struck in line with middle and leg, no doubt about that one at all, plumb! Played back to a delivery he could have played forward to. No need to go for the review there. 47/1
48.6 to MJ Guptill, Guptill goes, finally, the round the wicket angle worked, angled in towards middle, turned, bounced, caught the glove as he tried to close the face and Fudadin took it well at short leg, in front of his face. 170/2
100.5 to DAJ Bracewell, lasts only two balls against Narine, he's lbw, Bracewell wonders whether to review, decides against it, it was a quicker one from Narine, it fizzed straight on, Bracewell was stuck in the crease, he misses and the umpire had an easy decision to make, no doubt at all about that one. 258/9
