  , Southee to Smith, no run, presses forward to defend a full ball towards cover
  , Southee to Smith, FOUR, short of a length with width outside off, Smith is quick to dispatch the loose ball, standing in his crease and driving the ball through covers
  , Southee to Smith, no run, moves into the right-hander this time but strays down leg, Smith moves across his stumps and lets it go
  , Southee to Smith, no run, lets the outswinger go this time outside off, was further away from him
  , Southee to Smith, no run, Smith moves back and across to play a full outswinger as it begins to swing away from him, I have no idea how he middles it with that technique of staying so deep, defended on the leg side with a straight bat
  , Boult to Burns, no run, beaten outside the off stump by one that slants across
  , Boult to Smith, 3 runs, now he gets squared up and the ball goes between the slip cordon and gully towards third man off the outside edge

  , Southee to Smith, no run, that is a stunning ball, did everything but take a wicket. Southee slanted the ball into the right-hander from over the wicket, pitching on a good length around off and middle, and seamed it away from Smith who was squared up and utterly beaten
  , Southee to Burns, 1 run, closer to the batsman this time, angling in, Burns plays it through square for a single

  , Boult to Burns, 1 leg bye, inswinger from Boult, thumps the pads - but not given! NZ consult briefly and decide to review the not-out decision from S Ravi.
