    8.4 taken at long-off! Tossed up at the stumps, Guptill tries to go over cover but can't quite get it wide enough and Agar takes a pretty comfortable catch. That's a big dent in New Zealand's hopes 80/3
    1.6 taken at cover! Meredith has his first wicket. A length ball, Seifert aims to the leg side, slices across the delivery, sends it well into the night sky and Stoinis does very well to settle underneath it 20/1
    4.4 gone, Meredith strikes again! Gets this fuller, Williamson playing across the line, that looked pretty straight. He's having an impact on debut 48/2
    12.3 taken at deep midwicket this time! Length ball turning in from outside off, shuffles and gets a little too close to the incoming delivery. His sweep is off the inside half of the bat and straight to the fielder 109/5
    12.1 holes out at long-on. Length ball tossed up wide outside off, spins away from his slog sweep. He ends up slicing it and it is taken easily 109/4
    12.5 appeal for catch behind and it is given. Neesham not too sure, but he won't take the DRS. This is full and sliding across him. He looks to drive through cover and jams the bat into the pitch. It's also got a thin outisde edge by the sounds of it as this happens. He walks back for a golden duck to close out a bad day. Agar has three wickets in the over! And a ball to come still 110/6
    16.2 a five-for from Agar! And completed by a very good take from Zampa. Length ball outside off, top edge on the slog sweep hangs to Zampa's right at short third. Swerves away from him and after running sideways to his right, he's forced to then dive forward and to his right. Manages to take it inches off the ground 138/8
    14.1 must be great to be Agar. Lobs this loopy length ball outisde off, Southee's feet are down leg side, his bat swishing well outside off. Ends up chipping it to Maxwell at long-off 116/7
    16.6 oh this looks good for a six-for. Umpire's given lbw, Jamieson reviews. It's a straighter one at off and middle. Jamieson steps across to try and ramp it fine. He's caught on the knee flap of his front leg, in front of middle stump. No bat or glove on it. Wickets will be umpire's call. That is six wickets for Agar. Incredible spell! 144/9
    17.1 and that is that. Richardson takes it pitch side off his own bowling. Good length ball at the stumps, Sodhi clears the front leg and gives it a big heave. It's a skier and taken comfortably around hort midwicket 144/10
