Alfonso Thomas402125.25101010
2.5 to RJ Quiney, and another left-hand batsman is gone lbw to the round-the-stumps angle. This is short of a length, Quiney pulls across its line, the ball seems to have stayed a touch low. Pitched just outside off, hits him in front of middle and off, and would have taken top of middle. 14/2
17.3 to RM Hira, Hira comes down the track and drives well, but unfortunately straight down mid-off's throat. Well done, Thomas for having the mid-off in the circle in the first place. 104/7
Peter Trego402626.50112100
1.6 to JHK Adams, Adams is not pegged in the crease, and flicks across the line of a straight delivery. The umpire's finger shoot sup immediately. Adams doesn't look pleased. Height didn't seem an issue to me. The line is good too. Pitches outside off, hits him in front of middle, would have taken out leg. 8/1
3.1 to MJ Guptill, Smart thinking from Somerset, not that smart by Guptill. They saw him drive well in the last over, brought the third man up and sent long-on back. Trego bowled straight, Guptill couldn't stop himself going for the lofted drive, and found out the long-on to perfection. Guptill is stunned, but he should have known better. 14/3
Roelof van der Merwe402516.25102100
16.3 to KD Mills, yorker on the base of leg, and van der Merwe has squeezed through this time. Mills has been looking to give himself room, but van der Merwe has provided him neither space nor length. 97/6
Murali Kartik402406.0082000
Max Waller401814.50101000
11.6 to C Munro, Gone. Not a big surprise really. He has moved around all over the place, Waller has stayed straight, and this time Munro pushes forward, then rocks back and misses a length ball. Off stump gone. Was a matter of sooner or later. 70/5

Kyle Mills403619.0076000
2.4 to CR Jones, Jimmy Adams is some sort of electric fence at point. Another New Zealand side stays alive through its fielding. This is cut away fiercely, but Adams has dived to his unnatural side to pouch this. 22/1
Chris Martin403117.75104000
11.5 to AV Suppiah, Tom Martin strikes too. Auckland's aces are falling right here. Suppiah plays the big pull, this seems to be the slower ball, and the massive top edge is safely pouched in the mid-on region. 64/5
Michael Bates411323.25141000
9.1 to PD Trego, and Bates has struck with his first ball back. Trego gives him the charge, makes room, and smashes this cover-drive, smack off the middle of the bat, but straight to Guptill at short extra cover. Lovely catch. Too close for comfort, was Guptill, when batsmen connect with their drives. 54/3
9.2 to NRD Compton, Bates has opened the gates here! Lovely offcutter here. Short of a length, middle and leg, and seams a way a touch. Compton wants to open the face on it, the edge is taken, and Bates is on a hat-trick. 54/4
Andre Adams403007.5052000
Ronnie Hira401513.75100000
8.1 to RE van der Merwe, One of those trademark van der Merwe shots where he is looking at fine leg and hits to third man. Gives this an almighty thwack, and the outside edge lobs to short third. Auckland still alive, only just. 52/2
