Fall of wickets - Australia 1 INN
       Southee to Finch       30/1

Southee to Finch,OUT,Southee draws first blood, the crowd erupts! He took the risk of pitching it up again just outside off, swung it in a bit and the ball went through the drive Finch unleashed. Off stump knocked over, Southee pumps his fists and is mobbed by his team-mates

       Vettori to Watson       80/2

Vettori to Watson,OUT,Watson has holed out! It was a innocuous short ball on the stumps, Watson went back in the crease and pulled it to the leg side where Southee went to his right to complete an easy catch at deep midwicket

       Southee to Warner       80/3

Southee to Warner,OUT,two in two for NZ, Southee gets Warner lbw but he wants a review! This one swung into the batsman to cram him up as the ball probably headed towards middle leg, Warner went on is toes to defend as the ball hit just above the knee roll after pitching on leg. It's hitting the stumps, with umpire's call so Warner has to go!

       Vettori to Smith       95/4

Vettori to Smith,OUT,caught behind, one more for Vettori! It was a bit flatter outside off, Smith pushed at it towards the off side and the ball went straight into Ronchi's gloves after a thick outside edge

       Boult to Maxwell       96/5

Boult to Maxwell,OUT,he's chopped it on, Australia crumbing here! The ball was angling away from Maxwell from outside the off stump, Maxwell looked to force it through the off side without any footwork and get an edge to disturb his stumps

       Boult to Marsh       97/6

Boult to Marsh,OUT,one more, what's going on?! Marsh also drags it on and goes for a duck! This back of length delivery was seaming away from the batsman, he went to the back foot to defend on the off side but played the wrong line and got an edge onto his stumps. The crowd is roaring!

       Boult to Clarke       104/7

Boult to Clarke,OUT,oh my, Clarke has given it away, Boult gets his third! He gave Clarke room on the off side, Clarke swung his arms uppishly and gave a straightforward catch to Williamson at short cover

       Boult to Johnson       106/8

Boult to Johnson,OUT,that's a wonderful catch, one more falls! Johnson made room for the full delivery just outside off, drove it in the air and Williamson was there again, this time to dive to his right to grab it with both hands

       Boult to Starc       106/9

Boult to Starc,OUT,missing - the middle stump's gone missing! What a beaut there from Boult - it pitched right on middle stump on length, looked like it was angling in, which Starc played for, but it held its line after pitching and knocked over only the middle stump. The crowd is loving it

       Anderson to Haddin       151/10

Anderson to Haddin,OUT,goes this time, gives a catch to short third man! Anderson pitched it shorter this time, Haddin went through the shot little early with a drive and got a thick edge for short third man. The last man falls

Fall of wickets - New Zealand 1 INN
       Starc to Guptill       40/1

Starc to Guptill,OUT,taken at mid off, Guptill's gone! It was pitched up again, Guptill merely chipped it down the ground with a drive, maybe looking to clear mid off, but Cummins went to his right to complete a good catch

       Cummins to McCullum       78/2

Cummins to McCullum,OUT,he gets it off the middle but finds the man at mid-off! End of a superb innings by Baz, played, I am sure, with a badly hurting left hand. He gave himself room and looked to clear this over the off side, but just did not get the elevation. Easy catch for the fielder. But yet again, he has set New Zealand on the road to victory with a massive thrust up the order

       Starc to Taylor       79/3

Starc to Taylor,OUT,knocks him over, there goes the off stump! Taylor tried a cross-batted shot for the length delivery just around off, the ball swung in and went right through the gate to rattle the off stump. The players head off for what was supposed to be innings break at this time

       Starc to Elliott       79/4

Starc to Elliott,OUT,middle stump's gone, first ball! Elliott left a big gap between bat and pad for the straight delivery that pitched around off and came in to rattle middle stump, he didn't have much footwork either and pushed only tentatively at the ball. Happens on the first ball

       Maxwell to Anderson       131/5

Maxwell to Anderson,OUT,he slogs and he gives a catch! It was a length delivery just outside off, Anderson went down on a knee for the slog sweep and slammed it straight to mid on where Cummins took a good, low catch. They are checking for the catch now, Anderson waiting at the boundary. Cummins was down on his knees as the ball was dipping on him, replays show a part of the ball was out of his hands and they aren't clear enough to say if the ball hit the ground for sure or not. Given out finally, Anderson walks back again

       Starc to Ronchi       139/6

Starc to Ronchi,OUT,peach of a delivery from Starc and that deserves a wicket! Nasty bouncer around middle stump, it was quick, and by the time Ronchi could sway out of the line by bending back like Keanu Reaves, the ball took some glove on the way

       Cummins to Vettori       145/7

Cummins to Vettori,OUT,wicket off a full toss, chipped straight to mid on! Innocuous and low full toss on the pads, Vettori hangs his head down after handing a straightforward catch to mid on

       Starc to Milne       146/8

Starc to Milne,OUT,Starc pumps the air, he's hit the stumps! Full delivery on middle, Milne exposed his stumps a bit, went for the drive and missed it completely

       Starc to Southee       146/9

Starc to Southee,OUT,GONE, Starc's on fire! He knows how to bowl those yorkers, doesn't he! Targets the off stump, Southee tries to put it away on the leg side but it's too quick at 150kmh and rattles the stumps
