Billy Stanlake403719.2583130
4.3 to MJ Guptill, got him, toe-ended to mid-off! Backed away to try and thrash down the ground, completely mistimed and Warner revs the chainsaw in celebration. Stanlake with the breakthrough, Guptill goes (relatively) cheaply this time. 48/1
Kane Richardson403027.50124100
5.2 to C Munro, straight up this time, and taken at mid-on! Munro holes out, Agar pouching it safely as Richardson gives it the double-fist pump. Maybe a bit of pace off there... NZ momentum well and truly checked now. 59/2
13.4 to TG Southee, slower ball, Southee heaves to leg - picks out deep midwicket! Another dumb slog without the air and it plops into the hands of Maxwell running in, took it low, took it well. 110/8
Andrew Tye403027.5093100
10.2 to MJ Santner, short and leg side, flies through as Santner pulls - was there glove on it? Yes! Tye banged in a fast bumper, Australia celebrated immediately and up went the finger. Oh dear. 93/6
19.4 to IS Sodhi, castled! Sodhi makes room and heaves across the line, Tye hits the top of middle! Sodhi runs straight off, he's done his job. 148/9
Ashton Agar402736.7571100
7.4 to KS Williamson, timber! Tossed up by Agar, gets him trying to come down the ground, nowhere near the pitch and an ugly swipe leaves Williamson stranded, the ball thudding into off stump! Nicely bowled, this wasn't a dart - gave it some air and duped the batsman. 72/3
7.6 to MS Chapman, tossed up and Chapman attempts to sweep, hit on the front pad - and given! After a moment's discussion, he decides to review, however... Looked pretty good to me, but maybe going on with the angle from round the wicket? No bat involved, it pitched in line and ball-tracking says it would have smashed off stump! Good decision from Wayne Knights and Agar has his second. 73/4
9.5 to C de Grandhomme, baits the hook, De Grandhomme bites... picks out cow corner! No great connection and there's a man out there waiting, the safe hands of Glenn Maxwell and Agar has a third wicket! Really not though through, that shot... NZ five down. 91/5
Marcus Stoinis402315.75100110
12.4 to TL Seifert, bowled 'im! Slips in the yorker again, seemed to go under the bat - in fact, Seifert just played the wrong line - and the ball thudded into the base of off stump. Good bowling, Australia applying the chokehold here. 101/7

Ish Sodhi402115.25142100
9.2 to DA Warner, bowled him! That's a timely breakthrough, Warner made room to carve a short ball through the covers, but misjudged the pace and back goes his off stump!. 78/2
Tim Southee2021010.5030200
Mitchell Santner3.402917.9081101
10.3 to AC Agar, a frantic swipe at a wide delivery, and this time the keeper makes no mistake! Reached well, whipped off the bails, and Agar is leaving before the third umpire has confirmed his fate. Now then .... 84/3
Colin Munro201819.0022000
7.6 to DJM Short, in the slot for a slog, but Short gets right underneath his shot, comes off the toe, spirals into the sky, and plops into the hands of long on!. 72/1
