All|Overs 1-50
4

to Warner, FOUR, poor delivery down onto the pads and tickled away fine on the on-side. The radar went awry and put away in style by the dashing opener

6

to Warner, SIX, short, wide, enough invitation for Warner to climb into it. Both his feet went aerial and the horizontally held bat smacks the ball square on the off-side to send it many rows back into the crowd. That's the starting tonic they needed. First maximum of the innings

W

to Warner, out Caught by Ronchi!! Backed away, gave the charge, the ball hardly does anything but it manages to sneak the edge in its way to the mitts. Warner continues his dismal record in England. The pressure got to him. He did manage a release shot in the last over but wanted to do some early denting in this over only to plot his own misery. The bowler on his part dropped his length a wee bit seeing the batsman charge down. and wickets against Australia are eternal constants. Warner c Ronchi b 18(16) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Smith, FOUR, the Smith patented drive. Only hands, no real followthrough, no movement of the feet, just the lovely hands. The ball sped away through the covers for a four

4

to Smith, FOUR, gets the ball to slant across,, but Smith and his balance meet the ball with the full face of the bat, stroking it through the covers. This man continues his purple patch

W

to Finch, out Caught by Ross Taylor!! The ball decks in, jumps a bit on the batsman and Finch clips it softly straight to the man at mid-wicket. A soft dismissal. Not really a wicket taking delivery from but he strikes immediately. Finch looked uncomfortable and his miseries for the day have come to an end. The bat face turned as well on impact forcing the batsman to lose control over the shot. Finch c Ross Taylor b 8(18)

4

to Henriques, FOUR, short ball, close to the body and the batsman trying to fetch the pull shot of a delivery angled across manages to top-edge it. The ball goes ballooning over the keeper for a four

4

to Henriques, FOUR, short arm plumetted pull and the ball races past the man in the deep on the on-side for a four. He controlled it well and the timing on it worked like some delightful garnishing

4

to Henriques, FOUR, he was all aware of the short ball coming at him. Both his feet were firmly planted inside the crease when he met the ball with the pull. Timed and placed it to perfection

4

to Henriques, FOUR, played for the angle into him, ended up playing inside it and got an edge. The ball landed short of the man at slip and burst through his fingers to go away for a four

W

to Henriques, out Caught&Bowled!! Inside edge onto the pads and then a lob back to the bowler for Australia's third wicket to go down. And the heavens open up as well for the players to dive back into the pavilion. That was another darter, the batsman wanted to drive it but managed only a feather on the ball, then off the pads and into the cup of . He grabs it and lets out a huge roar. Australia in huge trouble. Henriques c and b 18(14) [4s-4]

4

to Guptill, FOUR, first four! Overcorrects does and ends up on the legs of Guptill who whips it in the air but over mid-wicket

4

to Guptill, FOUR, offers him the width again and this time the ball is slightly closer to Guptill whose flashing blade connects with the leather and sends it cracking through point. Two boundaries from the over and Guptill is getting in that zone

4

to Ronchi, FOUR, once again off the toe of the bat but in the gap between cover and point. Was in the air but eluded the fielder there. Ronchi went hard on the drive and sliced off the bottom to the shorter part of the ground

OT

to Ronchi, 1 run, let's go upstairs. Warner had one stump to aim at and he hits like it's nothing for him. In fact, umpire Kettleborough has got hawk-like eyes, did not send it up. Ronchi drove to Warner's left and took him on. Was able to beat the direct hit with a stretch in the end

4

to Guptill, FOUR, brilliant timing from Guptill. Just a firm push past the bowler that bisects mid-off and mid-on. Hastings is not interested much but Warner gives it all, dives near the fence but fails to pull that back in

4

to Ronchi, FOUR, only if Warner was few inches taller. An on-the-up drive from Ronchi that comes off the toe and is in the air. Warner leaps at mid-off - one handed - but fails to get fingers to that. Ronchi survives, again. Shaky starter is having his time out there

4

to Guptill, FOUR, 146kph. That would matter against someone, not against Guptill. He does not even lean much, pure hands as he drives past cover. What timing on that. Races away in no time

4

to Guptill, FOUR, is looking for swing from that fuller length but that is helping Guptill who does not let go of such run-milking balls. Drives this time and does well to pierce mid-off and mid-on with surgeon-like precision

W

to Guptill, out Caught by Maxwell!! It's that nagging length and it has earned the wicket. The cross-seamer that held up a bit as Guptill tried to work around the corner and beget a leading edge to backward point. It's funny how the better-looking batsman departs when the one at the other end is doing all the ugly dancing. Guptill c Maxwell b 26(22) [4s-5]

4

Cummins to Williamson, FOUR, first boundary for Williamson who gets a full ball around off and leans into the drive to beat backward point. Might just have opened the bat-face to find the gap

4

Cummins to Ronchi, FOUR, a pick-up whip that goes above mid-wicket. That's how he plays Ronchi. Takes his chances early on. This time it pays and fetches him a four as the ball trickles down to the fence

4

to Williamson, FOUR, as if he saw the length before it came. Was moving across this time and got the ball where he wanted. Was short but did not rise enough. Williamson swivelled on the pull and sent it to the deep backward square leg fence

6

Cummins to Ronchi, SIX, ok, so that is something we don't see often. Ronchi makes room, but it is a short ball. He was shaping for the inside-out drive so why back out. Goes with the shot and times the chip so well that it clears the deep extra cover fence

OT

Cummins to Williamson, 1 run, now that is interesting and awful - both from Starc, the batsmen and then the keeper. Williamson dropped to mid-wicket, wanted the single. Ran and stopped as the partner was not that interested. They decided to go eventually. Starc had attacked the ball and threw a mediocre under-arm volley to Wade, who was rushing towards the stumps. Somehow collected it but failed to hit the stumps with the ball in his hand. Comedy of errors in the end. Third umpire did not need many replays to ascertain that Ronchi was safe in the end. Wade had the ball in his hand but the momentum took him to the stumps and he had broken the stumps with his shoulder. Ronchi, in the meantime, had given up

4

Cummins to Ronchi, FOUR, what a shot! Pretty straight. Does not overhit, just goes with the flow of the willow and lofts over the bowler. Not a bad ball but gets put away for four

4

to Ronchi, FOUR, timed it really well. Got across a bit and then tucked past Starc at short fine leg. The latter gave the chase and slid near the fence, but the ball trickled down the fence

6

Cummins to Ronchi, SIX, Ronchi backs away and cuts. To help his cause, it was a short ball. Ronchi gave it all and slashed over the man at third man. Sailed away into the stands

4

Cummins to Ronchi, FOUR, and now to the other side. Ronchi, smartly, moves across to this short ball and then wafts it over a leaping Wade to his left and into the fine leg fence. Back to back fours for him

4

to Ronchi, FOUR, slices off the edge and flies to the third man fence on the bounce. Fifty for Ronchi. Against a country he was once part of. Anyway, this was a length delivery just outside off and he went hard at it, got a thick edge but then his aggressive batting has forced Australia on the back foot and they do not have a slip for him

4

Cummins to Ronchi, FOUR, that's humiliation of the highest order for a bowler. Ronchi skips down, makes room as well and then cracks the drive between mid-off and extra cover

D

Cummins to Ronchi, no run, Starc is not having the best of days on the field. Drops a catchable effort at mid-on. Got both hands to it, Ronchi dragged the hoick to Starc's right and the latter seemed he had it covered with a reverse cup but grassed in the end. Might cost Australia

4

Cummins to Ronchi, FOUR, similar shot. Has to fetch a short ball from around off. Might have been done in pace for a while but does well to get this one over Starc this time. The ball rolls away to the fence wide of long-on

6

Cummins to Ronchi, SIX, stays leg-side to this back of a length and lofts the length ball over the bowler. Guess what! The timing is so impeccable that it goes all the way

W

to Ronchi, out Caught by Maxwell!! Ronchi finally finds a fielder. One of the best in the Australian side. Maxwell at backward point clings on to a shot that was cracked to him. Shakes his hand as soon as he takes it. Was a length ball outside off and Ronchi opened the bat-face to crack it behind. Ended up hitting it straight to the fielder. Nonetheless has provided a rollicking start to the Kiwis. Ronchi c Maxwell b 65(43) [4s-9 6s-3]

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, that's a juicy half-volley and Ross Taylor does not miss out. Needs those early on in the innings. Leans and drives past extra cover

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, won't get away this time. Does not learn from his misake and throws it short and wide again. Ross Taylor, this time, cuts over Maxwell and beats sweeper to his left with ease

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, shapes away a touch from back of a length and that allows Ross Taylor the width there. He goes for the cut and gets it past backward point. Third man's desperate dive to his right is no use in the end

4

to Williamson, FOUR, that should release some pressure off Williamson, goes down on one knee and sweeps a full ball over square leg, it was in the air - but in the gap as well, split the two men in the deep to a nicety

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot, fraction too short from , sat up to be smacked, Taylor swivelled across, used the pace on the ball and paddled it behind square on the on-side, beat the man getting across from fine leg

6

to Williamson, SIX, cracking shot, KW was looking to break free, this was tossed up wider of off, right in the zone for the slog sweep, Williamson went down low and went over mid-wicket - has a lot of power behind the stroke and it sails over the ropes

OT

to Williamson, 1 run, fifty for KW, his 38th in ODIs - gets him on level terms with Martin Crowe. This was a short slower bouncer, helped away behind square on the on-side for a single

4

to Williamson, FOUR, this is poor bowling from , he can't bowl short at his pace. KW swivels across and pulls it in front of square on the on-side, gets it over mid-wicket and into the fence

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, beautifully played, this is turning out to be an expensive over from , length ball on the stumps, Taylor gets inside the line and clips it delightfully over square leg, didn't hit it with power, just found the gap to perfection

4

to Williamson, FOUR, lovely shot, that ruins the over for , on a good length and just outside off, Williamson walks across his stumps and lifts it over mid-off, no need to run for those

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot, came from wide off the crease and angled this one into Taylor's pads, he presses across and flicks it wide of mid-on, the timing is sublime and the ball rolls away towards the fence. Hazlewood gives the chase, slides and pulls the ball back into play - but as he did so, his feet was touching the skirtings, signalled as a boundary

4

to Williamson, FOUR, slower short ball from , but he provided plenty of width on that. KW shuffles across and goes over backward point, no need to run for those

6

to Williamson, SIX, cracking shot, KW is upping the tempo and Smith looks a worried man now. Length delivery on the stumps, Williamson prods across and swipes it high and over mid-wicket, went a long way into the crowd as well

W

to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Henriques!! That's a nothing shot and Ross Taylor has given it away. On a good length and just outside off, the cross-seam delivery from - took all the pace of the delivery. Taylor was looking to slog it over mid-wicket, the slower ball did him in, he horridly mistimes it high towards cover. Henriques runs across to his left and accepts the offering. Australia needed this wicket, this partnership was threatening to take the match away from their grasp. Ross Taylor c Henriques b 46(58) [4s-6]

OT

to Williamson, 1 run, full-toss on Williamson's pads, clipped straight to Warner at mid-wicket for a quick single

4

to Williamson, FOUR, too short from , it was the short slower ball as well. Williamson backed away and pulled him behind square on the on-side, beats the man in the deep with ease

6

to Williamson, SIX, cracking shot, length ball on the stumps, that's easy pickings for a man on 88, Williamson prods across and pulls it high and over deep mid-wicket. Head thought he had a chance - but then simply watches it sail over his head

4

to Neil Broom, FOUR, too short from , Broom stands tall and flat-bats it over mid-wicket. Henriques ran across from long-on, put in the slide but can't haul the ball back in

4

to Williamson, FOUR, Williamson shows how it's done! Unlike Broom, he doesn't pre-meditate, waits on the length delivery outside off, moves across, uses the pace on the ball and laps it over short fine, moves onto 99 with that boundary

OT

to Williamson, 1 run, 9th ODI hundred for KW, his first against Australia, gets a loud round of applause from this Edgbaston crowd. On a good length and just outside off, drives towards cover for a single

W

Cummins to Williamson, out Williamson Run Out!! Good work from Cummins, this will be mighty close. KW is short, OUT is the call. Williamson falls after a brilliant hundred, how costly will this prove to be for his team? A wide yorker from Cummins, Williamson reached out and squeezed it towards backward point. He hesitated as Broom called him across for a quick single, Henriques was quick onto the ball and threw it towards Cummins, the bowler turned back and broke the stumps with an under-arm throw, KW was always struggling and he's caught short by a yard. Williamson run out (Henriques/ Cummins) 100(97) [4s-8 6s-3]

W

to Neil Broom, out Caught by Maxwell!! Broom never got going and his misery is over! On a good length and on the stumps, right in the hitting zone - but Broom has struggled from the first ball, swipes across the line, doesn't get anywhere near the middle of the bat, gets a lot of height but not the distance. Maxwell settled himself under it at deep mid-wicket, he doesn't drop those. Neil Broom c Maxwell b 14(19) [4s-1]

6

Cummins to Corey Anderson, SIX, top-edge and six, that will not please Cummins one bit, another well-directed short ball, got big on Anderson as he looked to pull. He was in no control, but he was hitting towards the smaller boundary. Hazlewood looked interested, but watches the ball sail over his head

W

Cummins to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Henriques!! New Zealand are losing the plot in the death overs. Australia continue to chip away at the wickets, this was full and wide of off, Anderson backed away on the lofted drive, got too underneath the ball, gets plenty of height but not the distance. Henriques settled under the swirler at backward point, kept his eyes on the ball and holds on - even as he tumbled onto the ground. Corey Anderson c Henriques b Cummins 8(5) [6s-1]

W

to Neesham, out Caught by Warner!! New Zealand are falling away completely! Neesham is the seventh wicket to fall, this was full and wide of off, Neesham was looking to drill it back over the bowler's head. He was playing against the angle, ends up dragging it towards long-on. Warner doesn't need to move, Australia are bossing this phase of the game. Neesham c Warner b 6(10)

4

to Milne, FOUR, cracking shot, a wide half-volley from , Milne gets forward and thumps it through cover, beats the diving fielder and rolls away to the fence

4

to Santner, FOUR, high full-toss from , the line is down the leg-side as well, Santner helps it on its way to the fine-leg boundary

4

to Milne, FOUR, Milne is playing a good hand here, banged in short and on the stumps, Milne swivels across, gets inside the line and pulls it behind square on the on-side, beats the man getting across from long leg

W

to Milne, out Caught by Maxwell!! Catching practice for Maxwell at deep mid-wicket, his fourth of the day. Milne will consider himself unlucky, he belted this back of a length delivery off the middle of the bat - flat and hard - but straight to Maxwell and he ain't dropping those. Takes it right in front of the ropes, fourth wicket for . Milne c Maxwell b 11(7) [4s-2]

W

to Santner, out Caught by Smith!! has got five wickets! This was full and wide of off, Santner was looking to go inside out over cover, doesn't get hold of the shot - more of a slice and it's a simple overhead catch for the Australian captain - at the edge of the ring at extra-cover. finds himself on a hat-trick. Santner c Smith b 8(7) [4s-1]

W

to Boult, out Caught by Wade!! Edged and caught! Six wickets for and New Zealand have been bowled out for 291. Massive comeback from their Trans-Tasman neighbours. Coming to the ball, it was pitched up outside off and nipped away slightly, Boult was prodding across in defence, gets a healthy edge that's gobbled up by Wade - diving to his right. Boult c Wade b 0(2)
