35.4 - Stokes to Williamson, out Caught by Plunkett!! Ohh dear! Williamson has missed out on a hundred by 7 runs. He looks very disappointed as he walks back to the hut.

7.2 - Plunkett to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by Stokes!! Plunkett strikes off his second ball and it's McCullum, who is walking back to the hut. It was a short delivery from Plunkett that cramps McCullum for room, he goes for the pull half-heartedly, didn't have the room to free his arms and hits it high in the air. Stokes from mid-wicket runs back to his right and takes a good catch. Brendon McCullum c Stokes b Plunkett 39(22) [4s-5 6s-2]

45.4 - Finn to Ross Taylor, no run, run-out chance missed! This was angled in on the pads, Taylor clips it straight to backward square leg. Santner was out of his crease in search of a single, Taylor sends him back and the fielder fires a quick throw at the non-striker's end. A direct-hit would have caught him short even though he put in the dive

39.2 - Finn to Ross Taylor, no run, that was close! This was a back of a length delivery around off, Taylor jumps in the crease and drops it in front of cover and sets off, the fielder runs forward and underarms the throw at the striker's end, Taylor turns back quickly and had to put in the dive to get back in

36.3 - Adil Rashid to Ross Taylor, no run, run-out chance missed! Taylor drops it into the off-side and Elliott was out of his crease in search of a single. Billings tries to effect a direct-hit at the non-striker's end, but missed. Elliott would have been gone had there been a direct-hit

23.3 - Plunkett to Williamson, 1 run, well played Williamson, that will be fifty for New Zealand's most trusted batsman, Williamson opens the face of the bat and guides it to third man, not much of a celebration from the youngster as he knows that his job is not over yet

35.2 - McClenaghan to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Elliott!! Morgan's brilliant innings comes to an end. This was the slower ball on a length and outside off, Morgan wanted to go over extra cover, but ended up hitting it squarer, didn't quite get it off the middle of the bat. Elliott at sweeper cover strations himself under it and takes the simplest of catches. Morgan walks back dejected, the Kiwis though are delighted. Eoin Morgan c Elliott b McClenaghan 88(47) [4s-6 6s-6]

32.1 - Boult to Buttler, out Caught by Ronchi!! This is an important wicket for New Zealand, this partnership was threating to run away with the game.

Buttler c Ronchi b Boult 41(38) [4s-4 6s-1]

Stokes c Ronchi b McClenaghan 28(17) [4s-2 6s-1]

16.0 - Mitchell Santner to Hales, out Caught by Boult!! 2 wickets in 3 balls for Santner. Hales makes a disappointed walk back to the hut.

Hales c Boult b Mitchell Santner 54(49) [4s-6 6s-3]

15.4 - Mitchell Santner to J Root, out Caught by Nathan McCullum!! Big wicket for New Zealand as the centurion from the last game is gone. This was floated up and might have bounced extra as Root goes for a slog sweep, he gets a top-edge and it goes high in the air. Nathan McCullum runs back from mid-wicket and takes the catch. J Root c Nathan McCullum b Mitchell Santner 6(10)

12.3 - Nathan McCullum to Jason Roy, out Caught by Ross Taylor!! That's a soft, soft dismissal. Roy once again kneels down and goes for the reverse sweep off this fullish delivery outside off, he hits it in the air and straight to Taylor at short third man. Jason Roy c Ross Taylor b Nathan McCullum 39(37) [4s-6]

41.2 - Southee to Plunkett, 2 runs, dropped! This was a low full toss on the stumps, Plunkett slices it high in the air and Guptill from backward point runs after it, the ball was swirling as Guptill got both hands to it, but can't hold on. The batsmen take two in the meantime

38.1 - Boult to Adil Rashid, no run, dropped! That was a touch chance though. It was short and wide outside off, Rashid looks to cut and gets an outside edge that flies to Taylor at slip, who jumps high and gets his right hand to it, he tries parrying the ball towards Ronchi, but it drops in front of him

27.0 - Southee to Buttler, 1 run, edged and dropped! Taylor is the culprit there. Slip catching from New Zealand has been very poor today. This was a back of a length delivery outside off, Buttler goes for the cut and gets an outside edge that flies to the right of Taylor at slip, he gets both hands to it but can't hold on. The batsmen take a single as the ball rolls away to third man

3.0 - Southee to Jason Roy, no run, edged and dropped! This was a back of a length delivery outside off that shapes away, Roy pushes at that and gets an outside edge that flies straight to second slip, Nathan McCullum can't hold onto it, the ball drops to his left and he tries to take it on the second attempt, takes it with his left hand but as he fell on the ground, the ball slips out of his hand. He will be very disappointed with that effort

10.4 - Nathan McCullum to Jason Roy, 2 runs, looks to work it through the on-side, drags it through mid-wicket off the inside half of the bat. He decides to come back for the second and Santner fires an accurate throw at the striker's end. Roy had to put in a full length dive to make his ground just before Ronchi disturbed the stumps
