Kane Richardson4040210.00104220
18.2 to C de Grandhomme, bowled 'im! De Grandhomme clears the front leg but is done by the slower ball, thick-edges into his back leg and on to the stumps! Another wicket at the death, Richardson snaffles the dangerous Bigman. 222/5
18.5 to KS Williamson, full outside off, Williamson chips it to long-off running in! Completely mistimed, think it was a slower ball again from Richardson, floated up and plopped down the ground, Tye taking it well. 224/6
Billy Stanlake4043110.7584210
17.6 to MS Chapman, oof, that's a blow on the helmet - and it's knocked clean off his head and into the stumps! Very unfortunate for Chapman, he's unhurt but he is out... Reminiscent of Pietersen getting out against WI a decade ago, the helmet slipped straight off his head and bounced into the wicket. Stanlake strikes, closing out a decent over. 220/4
Andrew Tye4064216.0051740
10.4 to C Munro, slogged down the ground... but this is pouched at long-on! Australia finally get their breakthrough, Maxwell running around to bag it safely. Didn't quite get hold of this one, Tye back off the canvas, bloodied but not beaten. 132/1
16.4 to MJ Guptill, got him, slogged into the leg side! Guptill finally plinks one short of the rope, Tye gets another, although it was close to being a no-ball... Swung towards deep midwicket from high on the bat and Maxwell again takes the catch coming in off the rope. 212/3
Marcus Stoinis4050012.5054311
Ashton Agar302418.0050200
12.5 to TL Seifert, Agar baits the trap, and Seifert picks out deep square leg! Hitting towards the longer part of the ground, against the spin and the connection wasn't good, sailed down the throat of Finch, who holds it safely. 155/2

Trent Boult3.5042110.9585120
16.4 to DJM Short, top edge, and taken! A short ball, Short goes for the pull, it goes high in the air and Seifert has plenty of time to get around to short fine leg. 217/4
Ben Wheeler3.1064020.2144532
Tim Southee4048112.0056210
15.2 to GJ Maxwell, chopped on! Southee rolls his fingers across this, Maxwell giving himself some room to open up the off side, into off stump. 199/3
Ish Sodhi403518.7561210
8.3 to DA Warner, done him! Beaten all ends up. Very nicely bowled. A googly, think Warner read it, went back to pull but was through his shot a fraction early and the ball takes the top of off stump. 121/1
Colin de Grandhomme3.5056114.6023430
11.1 to CA Lynn, taken at deep cover this time! Full outside off, jabbed out over the side, it's a skimming shot, reaches Guptill in a hurry and this time he holds on. 143/2
