Kane Richardson402807.00122120
Billy Stanlake401533.75151000
1.1 to C Munro, strikes first ball! The short one. Munro goes for the pull, onto him too quickly, takes a big top edge and Carey moves around to the short fine-leg position to gather a simple chance. Probably not short enough for the stroke. 11/1
1.2 to MJ Guptill, what a ball! He's on a hat-trick! Good length at off stump, nips off the seam, beats the outside edge and takes the top of off stump. That's a beauty. 11/2
3.2 to TC Bruce, and he has three! Another short ball. Well directed, over middle and off, Bruce can't control his hook, takes a top edge and is very well judged on the long-leg boundary. 16/3
Ashton Agar402215.5090010
15.6 to LRPL Taylor, and he strikes with his last ball! Think it's caught, although Carey has completed the stumping as well. Taylor using his feet, doesn't get to the pitch, aims to play square and gets a thin top edge. 90/6
Andrew Tye402345.75110120
7.2 to KS Williamson, huge wicket! Tye strikes second ball. Short of a length at off stump, Williamson looking to work into the leg side, closes the face and the ball takes a leading edge. Loops over cover, Warner turns and takes it comfortably over his shoulder. 34/4
17.2 to MJ Santner, that's very high, and doesn't get further than deep midwicket...full and straight, Santner trying to go over the leg side, pace off the ball again, can't get anything like enough distance. 92/7
19.2 to TG Southee, shuffling around the crease, it's a low full toss at 135kph, very sweetly flicked but he picks out deep square leg...taken very low by his bootlaces. 114/8
19.6 to IS Sodhi, and cleans him up with the last ball...full at off stump, Sodhi swings across the line. Tye finishes with four. 117/9
Adam Zampa302117.0080210
12.1 to TA Blundell, finds long-off! He's been eager to go down the ground. Didn't have the legs. Held back a fraction by Zampa, Blundell wasn't quite to the pitch so was reaching for it a little as he used his feet. 60/5

Trent Boult301424.66112000
2.1 to DA Warner, bouncer, Warner swings it leg side... and Bruce juggles the catch smartly on the rope! Went right down his schooner but he was off balance, had to step back over the boundary, but had the presence of mind to lob it up and get back inside the playing area to complete the dismissal. Two in two for NZ and this chase has just got interesting. 10/2
10.6 to CA Lynn, banged in, Lynn hooks - and sends it straight to fine leg! Second wicket for Boult, but the job is almost done for Australia. 87/3
Tim Southee2.3027110.8075020
1.5 to DJM Short, picks out midwicket! It's a short showing from Short, latched on again to the pull, seemed to middle the shot but hit it straight to Ross Taylor, who stayed low and snagged it well. 10/1
