    3.2 carved into the off side, taken at mid-off! Wade trying to go over the covers, comes off the toe end of the bat and it's a simple catch 16/3
    0.5 taken at point! This came out of the middle from Finch, but didn't keep it down. Driving on the up outside off, nicely taken by the man of the moment Devon Conway 3/1
    1.5 and another...both sides having early problems! It's a brief first innings for Philippe, looking to work this through the leg side and gets a big top edge. Another catch for Conway 8/2
    12.5 cut straight to Santner! Sharp chance taken at backward point! Short and wide, he leaned back flayed a cut shot hard and flat but Santner dives to his right and catches it nicely at chest height 98/6
    4.2 edged, sharp catch at second slip! Australia falling apart under the Christchurch lights. Pitched up outside off, Maxwell drives on the up away from his body. Nicely taken by Neesham 19/4
    8.5 short ball, straight back to the bowler! A bit of a long hop, really. Stoinis looked a little rushed as he tried to pull and skews it at chest height to Sodhi 56/5
    13.4 thick edge and a superb catch from the big man Jamieson diving forward at short third man! Leg break tossed up very high outside off, it was a half volley, Agar gives himself room to thrash it through point, gets a thick edge that carries all the way to short third man and Jamieson dives forward 99/8
    13.2 top edge straight up to short fine! Simple catch for Jamieson. Shorter on leg, it bounced a touch more than he expected, he was trying to pull it over deep square and got a top edge that went straight up, Jamieson moves to his right and takes it easily 99/7
    17.3 stumped by a mile trying to go again! Clever bowling. Jhye jumped out early again, Santner saw it, dragged the length shorter and beat him comprehensively. Easy stumping for Seifert 131/10
    15.2 lofted straight down long off's throat! Sodhi has four! Tossed up outside off, Kane tries to loft with the spin over long off, he struck ok but not well enough to clear the man in the deep and it's a simple catch 108/9
