57.1 to BB McCullum, Jarvis strikes and removes the dangerous McCullum with a ball angling into middle, tried to flick across the line and missed, struck on the pad and given, height was the only possible issue but the replays showed it clipping the top. 195/3
105.5 to DAJ Bracewell, fuller ball alomost a yorker, swings back at the right hander who flicks to the on side, beaten AND bowled. 392/6
34.4 to MJ Guptill, against the run of play Zimbabwe break through, it was a short ball outside off and Guptill tried to force it off the back foot through the covers but there wasn't enough room, ends up getting a thick edge taken up high by Taibu. 124/1
58.6 to DG Brownlie, dreadful stroke from Brownlie, his feet were well and truly cemented to the crease there, waved the bat at a wide one outside off and got a thick edge which was gleefully gobbled up by Taibu, Brownlie comes crashing back to earth with a duck. 196/4
75.5 to DL Vettori, brilliant work from the pocket rocket Tatenda Taibu behind the stumps sends Vettori on his way, the wrong'un from Cremer deceived Vettori and lured him out of the crease, he missed it and dragged his foot out, the Kiwis five down. 278/5
116.6 to TG Southee, tries again, this time gets under it, goes very hiigh but Waller is safe at deep forward square leg. 466/7
