402015.0081000
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

403919.75115200
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
403508.75103200
403428.5051200
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
401634.00141010
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
