Kyle Mills403228.0082200
2.5 to F Mutizwa, soft way to end your first international appearance on the tour, Forster goes for nought as he just pops a gentle catch to cover coming forward without proper intent. 16/2
14.5 to MN Waller, another slower ball wide of off, Waller waits and pulls but can't get any muscle behind it and Guptill runs in from long-on to take a neat, sliding catch. 106/5
Michael Bates403137.7591200
1.4 to BRM Taylor, big wicket of Zimbabwe's best batsman, he shuffled across to work to leg and it clipped the leg bail, only the slip fielder seemed to be aware to the fact among the New Zealanders. 5/1
19.3 to E Chigumbura, no third time lucky for Elton who falls short of fifty after a perky innings, he could not get this carve past long-off, he was on the back foot and it was slightly slower than the first two deliveries. 156/7
19.5 to P Utseya, walks across and tries to paddle over his shoulder but can't get it over Franklin at fine leg. 157/8
Doug Bracewell4047011.7576201
Nathan McCullum201115.5051000
12.2 to T Taibu, Taibu gave himself some room and mistimes the hoy over cover down to long-off. 88/4
Ronnie Hira402215.5071010
17.4 to SW Masakadza, maiden international wicket for Hira as Shingi misses the slog to leg and watches the middle pole get knocked back. 135/6
Rob Nicol10909.0020100
Kane Williamson10616.0010000
10.2 to H Masakadza, comes down the track and goes for his fourth six but can't clear the fielder on the midwicket boundary. 78/3

1.3 to RJ Nicol, best possible riposte from the bowler as Nicol charged down once more and missed the heave to leg to see the stumps cleaned out. 14/1
1.4 to BB McCullum, not a happy day for the skippers, came down and tried to loft a ball swinging well away from him over the bowler's head and toed it high to mid-off. 15/2
