Boult hasn't been good this morning. Comms were talking earlier about the possibility of a leg slip - seriously might be worth a shot for an over or two.
As I say that, Bell plays and misses outside off.
Southee generally just starting everything slightly too wide.
Southee pulling off these one-twos beautifully.
Root having the balls to tell Bell to **** off.
Southee! Looks a different bowler this morning. That almost looked like a hint of reverse - just drifted back in.
Lands one perfectly though and gets it to jag back! Only question was height - reckon if Bell had reviewed it would be just clipping the bails. Will wait and see..
Southee has finally turned up. Bowling superbly.
Boult was saying that the plan was to have them 80/4 and go from there.
65/4 = WIN!
Decided to watch his action closely on the ball that happened to just get that wicket - thought "yep, looks better than Wellington at least on this ball" and boom wicket 2 tenths of a second later.
He is sloppy two balls every over though.
Well I think it's fair to say we are well and truly in the s**** now.
Congrats NZ, outclassed us with bat and ball.
