A lot resting on McCullum's shoulders now. New Zealand do have batting to come but the captain will need to stand up if his side are to have any chance of winning this series.
You know the old 'double your total at 30 overs of you have wickets in hand' theory? Well, New Zealand don't have wickets in hand - but I would expect (hope) they get more than 156.
If you had the 31st over in your 'when will the first Mexican Wave be seen' pool, then you're a winner.
And if you had the 32nd over in your 'when will the first six be hit' pool, you're also in luck. Baz goes boom down the ground off Swann.
Another drinks break as New Zealand edge towards three figures.
Halftime: Hurricanes 13 Blues 11
It's a narrow lead and this match is very much in the balance. Both sides have shown impressive speed out wide and power through the middle. The Hurricanes have dominated at scrumtime and looked to have the best of the early battles. If I had any money it would probably go on the Hurricanes, but my lukewarm hunches are one of the major reasons I have no money.
At the second drinks break, England need 33 from 19 (overs).
Talk to me Kris, is there anyone still at Eden Park?
A surprisingly large portion of the crowd has remained to wait for the inevitable. But it must be said they are finding alternative forms of entertainment. Not too sure how many are actually watching the cricket.
A six from Morgan leaves England needing 19. The end is nigh.
The second half is underway. Hurricanes lead by two points and are under pressure early.
A fine catch from Mills on the fine leg boundary gets ride of Morgan.
Running back, Mills leaps and snaffles the ball high above his head before somehow stopping short of the boundary rope.
Morgan departs for 39 from 24, England are on 168-4.
The Blues have a lineout close to the line and are putting the Hurricanes under a heap of pressure,
But they cough it up. Superb defence from the Hurricanes, they stay strong and compact and wait for the mistake and sure enough the loose pass came.
In Dunedin, the Warriors took a 2-0 lead into halftime of their pre-season match at the Broncos. Sounds enthralling. Highlight of the match was apparently Ruben Wiki tackling a streaker at the break.
Rene Ranger dances through tackles like a young Doug Howlett. Blues on attack..
The Black Caps are adding an element of respectability to this match, with Southee now getting Jos Buttler.
Buttler tried to hook but a top edge sent it straight up and a scrambling BJ Watling took a nice catch,
Weepu, Noakes then Braid all have a pop at the line...
England are on 171-5. They need 15.
Now through the backs and TRY TIME
Charles Piutau touches down and the Blues are back infront.
Weepu with the conversion from wide right, and he just hooks it left. Hurricanes 13 Blues 16 - 50th minute
The Blues have totally dominated the start of the first half. Superior fitness showing through perhaps?
55 mins gone - A few messy phases in midfield, Hurricanes steal the ball and give it the old kick and chase...
Savea is after it and very nearly gets a finger on it in goal. They're going upstairs. Stand by.
