Lionel Baker403218.00124111
2.6 to BB McCullum, pitched up and McCullum goes for the big shot. He miss-hits the shot and the ball floats to Benn at mid-off. Easy catch.. 21/1
Jerome Taylor403318.25112240
18.3 to LRPL Taylor, fast and straighter ball which Taylor misses and it rips leg-stump out the ground. Good bowling but Taylor's done his damage. 142/6
Fidel Edwards302819.3372200
5.1 to JD Ryder, beautifully bowled. Going away from off-stump but the balls swings in a bit before nipping of the surface and turning in to the top of Jesse Ryder's off-stump. Great delivery and Edwards picks up a wicket first ball. 37/2
Sulieman Benn402015.0081000
14.1 to JDP Oram, sliced away in the air over cover and it's a long boundary out there. Good catch taken on the boundary by Marshall. Oram just didn't quite get that in the middle of the bat. 104/4
Kieron Pollard2025112.5032200
9.2 to SB Styris, tries to manipulated the ball and it bounces off the top edge again this time straight up in to the air and Pollard takes a routine catch. 70/3
Chris Gayle301625.3350010
15.3 to JEC Franklin, fuller ball again and a powerful straight drive but Gayle gets his hands down quick to take a stunning catch. Good reflexes from the West Indies captain. 112/5
19.1 to DR Flynn, shorter slower ball which Flynn get's underneath too much and Fidel Edwards back pedals from extra cover to take a simple catch. 149/7

Kyle Mills402716.75133100
2.1 to S Chanderpaul, superb catch! A straight drive from Chanderpaul and it's going left of Mills but he dives down quick and takes a stunning grab with his left hand. 19/1
Tim Southee403919.75115200
19.1 to SE Findlay, pitched up and going away from the batsmen. He takes a wild swipe at it and the ball just nicks off the toe and McCullum gathers the ball. First blood to the Kiwis. 149/7
Jacob Oram403508.75103200
Jeetan Patel403428.5051200
14.1 to CH Gayle, pitched up from Gayle and he goes for one to many and doesn't get hold of it. Taylor has plenty of time to think about it at long-off and takes a crucial catch. 114/4
16.2 to CS Baugh, slower delivery and pitched up. He gets under it too much and McCullum calls for it early and makes good ground to get underneath it with the gloves. 130/6
Daniel Vettori401634.00141010
9.1 to XM Marshall, first ball! Vettori bowls one which keeps low and escapes under Marshall's defensive drive before going on and clipping his off-stump. 82/2
13.1 to RR Sarwan, Sarwan goes for the heroics but gets underneath it too much. The ball spins away high to Flynn at deep square leg where he takes the catch well. 109/3
15.3 to KA Pollard, slower ball and he gets under it too much. The ball soars high in to the air and Patel takes a simple but important catch at long-off. 124/5
