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
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
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
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
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
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

Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 2.1 ov), 2-82 (Xavier Marshall, 9.1 ov), 3-109 (Ramnaresh Sarwan, 13.1 ov), 4-114 (Chris Gayle, 14.1 ov), 5-124 (Kieron Pollard, 15.3 ov), 6-130 (Carlton Baugh, 16.2 ov), 7-149 (Shawn Findlay, 19.1 ov), 8-150 (Fidel Edwards, 19.4 ov)
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
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
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
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
