The New Zealand bowlers were a bit of a mixed bag today as they bowled well in patches. Despite picking up early wickets, Adam Voges and George Bailey's partnership in the middle and Glen Maxwell's late onslaught hurt them quite a bit as looking at the amount of runs they gave away they needed to bat well to ensure the results went in their favor. The best highlights of their bowling was Mitchell McClenaghan who picked up 4 wickets.
