Over 20.1 Kyle Jamieson bowls a good length delivery to Rohit Sharma, out Caught by Southee! Rohit hasn't quite covered the line. As a result, that's flown off the outside edge of the bat to the right of Southee who dives desperately to his right to cling onto a terrific catch.

Over 24.3 Neil Wagner bowls a good length delivery to Shubman Gill, out Caught by Watling! Deceived by the straightener off the seam, Gill trying to poke outside off, and this one takes the edge of the open face to Watling takes a simple catch behind the stumps.

Over 40.2 Trent Boult bowls a good length delivery to Cheteshwar Pujara, out Lbw!! Pujara on the front foot to defend, but the length ball hit the back leg in line with the middle and leg.  The umpire raises the finger.

Over 73.4 Kyle Jamieson bowls a good length delivery to Rishabh Pant, out Caught by Latham!! Pant throws his bat out, with his feet going nowhere, and with the ball tailing away, taking a thick outside edge and flying quickly to a reverse-cupping second slip.

Over 78.4 Neil Wagner bowls a good length delivery to Ajinkya Rahane, out Caught by Latham!! Rahane got into a great position to play but didn't play a full-fledged pull shot but in the process never bothered to keep it down. Latham positioned himself nicely to reverse cup it at square leg.

Over 85.5 Tim Southee bowls a good length delivery to Ravichandran Ashwin, out Caught by Latham!! Ashwin wanted the cover drive, got a thick outside edge instead and it's gone straight to second slip.

Over 91.4 Kyle Jamieson bowls a good length delivery to Ishant Sharma, out Caught by Ross Taylor! Sharma playing away from the body and  inducing the outside edge, getting it to move just enough to kiss it and that's through to the calmly waiting cups of Taylor at first slip

Over 91.5 Kyle Jamieson bowls a pitched up delivery to Jasprit Bumrah, out Lbw! Bumrah's bat goes across the line and he's been struck absolutely plumb in front and the Umpire raises the finger.

Over 92.1 Trent Boult bowls a good length delivery to Ravindra Jadeja, out Caught by Watling! Jadeja, who should've really deflected it away to the fence, ends up the thick inside edge and Watling takes a good catch behind the stumps.
