All|Overs 1-50
4

to Roy, FOUR, Roy and England are underway! Short ball from that sits up nicely for the England opener, who stands tall and pulls it away through mid-wicket. Raced away

4

to Roy, FOUR, this time through the off-side. It was spanked hard by Roy. Short of a length delivery outside off, Roy stays in his crease to crash it wide of cover. Once he found the gap, there was no one to stop that. Eight off the first over

4

to Hales, FOUR, the ball nibbles in the air but the batsman powers the ball away through the heavily manned off-side for a four with a carved hit

W

to Roy, out Caught by Boult!! Strikes first ball. The seam up delivery decks in and the uppish tuck only scales a distance where mid-on was positioned. He takes it with ease. Kiwis strike early and strike big. The ball might have hung onto the wicket slightly there for the batsman not to time it. Roy c Boult b 8(8) [4s-2]

4

to Hales, FOUR, short, wide, asking to be put away and the batsman obliges. Threads the cut past cover and it is four runs added to the tally

4

to Hales, FOUR, fuller length delivery and has been driven down the ground for a four again. The batsman did not really lean into the drive but the power was put into the hit and the man at mid-off could not fetch it back despite a valiant effort

4

to Hales, FOUR, short ball, the batsman hung back and then flayed the ball away with a pull. No one there at deepish long-on and the ball had an easy passage to the fence

6

to Hales, SIX, high, high and bye bye! Short ball, the batsman pivoted back and slammed the pull away with disdain to pepper the deep square leg region. That always looked like a mighty six, the moment it left the bat

4

to Hales, FOUR, the deft side of Hales is on show there. Backed away, held his balance and just laid bat on it to steer the ball between short third man and point for a four. Genius!

6

to Hales, SIX, now the bowler plays into the batsman's zone. Drops the ball short and the batsman cashes in and encashes a sixer with the help of a pull. There was a man at deep square leg but the ball went well over him

4

to Hales, FOUR, slower ball at the sticks, does not matter. The batsman backs away and carves the ball away. He sworded that over the short third fielder. Fifty up in no time for them

4

to Malan, FOUR, short again, the batsman was ready for it. The batsman lent a lot of power into the pull and placed it well to bisect the men in the deep. Deep square leg and deep mid had no chance as the ball thudded into the ad boards

4

Sodhi to Malan, FOUR, another googly and this time picked by the batsman. He dispatches the ball away with a powerful cut. The man at sweeper cover had no chance to his left

6

Sodhi to Hales, SIX, uh oh! That was a tossed up delivery but with in the batsman's range. The batsman knelt down and slog swept the ball over deep mid. 11 of the over. Take that! Harsh on the leggie as he bowled a pretty good over

4

Sodhi to Malan, FOUR, premeditated, but effective. The reverse sweep from Malan against a length ball and how well did he play that. Played upply and in the gap between short third man and backward point

W

Sodhi to Hales, out Caught by de Grandhomme!! Would you believe that? Hales peres to a half-tracker. Picks the man in the deep to perfection. It was a short leg-break that pitched around off and turned further away. Hales saw that, remained on the back foot to put it away. Drags the pull meekly and straight into the bucket hands of CDG at deep mid-wicket. Hales is livid with himself. Hales c de Grandhomme b Sodhi 47(24) [4s-6 6s-3]

6

to James Vince, SIX, lovely shot! Slower ball, was the knuckle ball from . Vince waits for the ball to arrive and chips it over extra cover. Just an extension of the cover drive. Goes all the way. Exquisite timing

4

Grandhomme to Malan, FOUR, superb effort from Santner, who ran across from long-off and flew to his right. Managed to get fingertips on it, but couldn't stop the boundary. Malan slightly moved leg-si, and lofted it over extra cover

W

Grandhomme to James Vince, out James Vince Run Out!! A direct hit and James Vince doesn't wait for the umpire's cision. He trudges off. England lose their their third wicket. A very full ball, Vince jams it to the right of extra cover and sets off for a run. He ran a bit lethargically and that led to his downfall. KW moved to his right, picked and flung it at the bowler's end to find the Englishman short. James Vince run out (Williamson) 10(7) [6s-1]

6

Sodhi to Malan, SIX, it's gone out of here! Right off the meat of the bat. Lots of flight on this ball, but the length was too full. Overpitched and Malan took heavy toll of it. Went down on one knee and nailed the slog sweep over deep mid-wicket

4

Sodhi to Malan, FOUR, six and now a four! Premeditated shot, Malan goes for the reverse-sweep against this shortened length ball. Off the top part of the bat, but had enough to go over backward point

W

Sodhi to Buttler, out Caught by Southee!! It's high, but isn't handsome? How much of a factor did wind play here? He struck that pretty well did Buttler. It was flighted around off, the England captain shimmied down to play the lofted off-drive. Got it off the meaty bat, but was played against the direction of the breeze. Southee, at long-off, settled under it and took a safe catch. Isn't easy when the ball is swirling around. A big wicket, this! Southee initially moves to his right and then to his left to gobble that up. Buttler c Southee b Sodhi 2(4)

4

Grandhomme to Malan, FOUR, good looking shot! Wasn't that short, Malan stayed back and slightly moved towards leg and that allowed him to free his arms. Follows it up with a cracking drive on the up through the cover region

4

to Billings, FOUR, follows a backing away batsman with a well-directed short ball. Billings was cramped for room, but he still persisted with the pull shot and made good contact to beat the fine leg fielder to his left

W

to Billings, out Caught by Ish Sodhi!! Gone! This is brave and excellent bowling from . This was nicely tossed up and the line was well wide of off. Billings moves across to play againat the turn. He went for the slog sweep and only managed a top-edge. Balloons up and settles into the hands of his spin twin at short fine leg. Billings c Ish Sodhi b 12(11) [4s-1]

OT

to Malan, 2 runs, darted outside off, Malan dances down and drills it between the non-striker and the stumps at the bowler's end. Superb over that, six runs and a wicket!

6

Sodhi to Willey, SIX, Willey will play his shots. Takes off the mark with a maximum. A googly outside off, Willey moves across, gets low and smacks the slog sweep over deep mid-wicket. Into the stands

6

Sodhi to Willey, SIX, 18 off the over! What has Santner done there? Dropped and then helped it over the ropes for a six. A flighted googly outside off, Willey crouched low to slog it away. Didn't time it as well as he'd liked it to. Santner at wide long-on was a bit lazy as he jumped up

6

to Malan, SIX, England are turning the heat on! Carrom ball from , doesn't matter. Malan came down the track and slogged it deep into the mid-wicket fence

W

to Malan, out Caught by Boult!! is a relieved man. It was fired outside off, Malan goes down on a knee to dispatch it over cow corner. Doesn't middle and holes out to long-on. Boult sports a bright smile after holding onto it. Malan c Boult b 59(40) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

to Jordan, FOUR, bangs one short, Jordan walks down and is up for the task. Muscles the pull over mid-wicket

W

to Jordan, out Bowled!! You miss, I hit. That's a superb nut from . Full, quick and straight. A yorker right in the blockhole, Jordan is a bit late to bring his bat down and the ball goes onto hit the base of off. Jordan b 6(6) [4s-1]

W

to Plunkett, out Bowled!! Two in two for . The plan is simple, bowl yorkers. Another in-searing delivery and Plunkett was dancing down to play across the line. Gets beaten on the inside edge and the ball makes a mess of his sticks. Eight down! Eight runs and two wickets off that over. Plunkett b 0(1)

W

to Adil Rashid, out Willey Run Out!! This top class bowling from New Zealand. Another yorker attacking the stumps. Rashid managed to put some wood on it. An inside edge, onto the boot and then the ball rolls towards the keeper. Seifert attacks the ball and hits the bullseye at the keeper's end. Even a dive can't save Willey. Willey run out (Seifert) 21(10) [6s-2]

4

to Mark Wood, FOUR, streaky! A short ball, Wood moves leg-side to slap it away over covers. Gets a fat edge and the ball flies over the cordon

4

to Adil Rashid, FOUR, a boundary, but NZ won't mind. They've registered their first victory of the series. A full ball on the pads, Rashid gets a tickle on his flick and the ball beats the short fine leg fielder. New Zealand win by 12 runs!

4

Wood to Munro, FOUR, cracking shot! Overpitched from Wood and Munro drives it dead straight past the bowler. Races away down the ground to the fence. Vince gave chase and nearly twisted his hammy in the process

4

Wood to Guptill, FOUR, whipped away! Wood went wide of the crease in a bid to angle this in but lost the radar. Ended up spraying a full ball on the pads and Guptill won't miss out. Whips it through the gap at mid-wicket

4

Wood to Guptill, FOUR, how cheeky is that? Nicely done by Guptill, got cramped to this short ball but had the presence of mind to play the ramp very late. Used all of Wood's pace to get it over Buttler. Another boundary

4

to Guptill, FOUR, Guptill is racing away! Slower ball but it's too straight and he makes room to power this through backward square leg. Strong wrists

4

to Guptill, FOUR, bang, bang! England aren't learning, either losing their line or their length and you cannot do that against Guptill. Overcooked this time and it's been bludgeoned past mid-off. Rockets away

4

to Munro, FOUR, easy pickings! Cannot bowl on leg stump with fine leg up in the ring. It's short as well and Munro merrily swivels to pull it over the man in the circle

4

Wood to Guptill, FOUR, hammered away! This is poor bowling from England, too many boundary balls. Short and wide, Guptill makes room to add to the misery and slaps it easily over point. One bounce to the fence

W

Wood to Munro, out Caught by Billings!! Wood provides the breakthrough! England needed this because these two can take the game away really quickly together. Short ball and probably not as quick as Munro anticipated and miscues the pull straight down fine leg. Billings completes the formalities. Munro c Billings b Wood 11(13) [4s-2]

4

to Williamson, FOUR, top shot! Fuller ball and a bit of width on it as well, Williamson creams the drive through the covers. Lovely shot and it raced away to the fence

6

Rashid to Guptill, SIX, massive hit! For once, Rashid tosses it right into Guptill's arc. He kneels down to employ a huge slog sweep over deep mid-wicket. First maximum of the night

4

to Williamson, FOUR, sloopy by the man at extra cover and it races away to the fence, leaving sweeper cover no chance. Fuller ball, Williamson just backed away and thumped the drive. Was hit hard but these need to be stopped at the international level

4

to Williamson, FOUR, smashed! is now getting predictable with his slower balls on a shortish length. Williamson just waits for it on the back foot and nails the pull behind square. Big over this one. NZ building momentum

6

Rashid to Guptill, SIX, that's gone all the way! Tremendous blow to bring up his fifty! Guptill has looked good from ball one and is on the rampage here. Gets down on one knee to this flighted ball and hammers the slog sweep over cow corner. Brings up the 50-run stand as well

6

Rashid to Guptill, SIX, this is hugeeeeeeeeeee! Goes deep into the crowd. Guptill has decided to step into top gear. Once again the slog sweep on seeing the flight and got enough meat on it to send it for a big six. Such is the swag from Guptill that he didn't bother looking up after finishing the shot. He knew

4

to Guptill, FOUR, such lovely touch! Guptill is motoring along nicely. just got the wide yorker wrong by an inch or so, Guptill waited to open the face late on this low full toss. Rocketed through backward point and third man was a mere spectator

6

to Williamson, SIX, that's a freebie and Williamson doesn't miss out this time. A juicy full toss, a bit high as well and it's dumped over deep backward square leg with a lovely pick up from the NZ skipper

W

Rashid to Guptill, out Caught by Plunkett!! Low full toss on the pads and the best that Guptill does is scoop it to the man at 45 degrees. Bad luck has a definition now. That was a terrible delivery but gets England the big wicket. The big man is gone. England would like they have had a jail break. Guptill c Plunkett b Rashid 65(40) [4s-6 6s-3]

W

Rashid to de Grandhomme, out Caught by Jordan!! One-handed stunner! That was a flighted ball and the batsman just extended his push with his open arms. The ball kept sailing away towards the long-off region before the huge right tentacle of Jordan decided to intercept. He took it mighty close to the ropes, then back stepped as he over balanced but stayed inside the ropes to complete one heck of a catch. The promotion for de Grandhomme lasts only ball. And Jordan should be a trapeze artist? Shouldn't he? de Grandhomme c Jordan b Rashid 0(1)

6

to Williamson, SIX, full ball, wide ball, bad ball. Bye bye ball. That was picked from well outside off and deposited over long-off for a maximum. Hardly lost a sweat while doing that. NZ will bank on him now

6

Wood to Williamson, SIX, thwack!!! KW gets to his 8th T20I fifty with a slog on the on-side. The slog fest overs have started and Williamson celebrates it with a mighty club on the on-side over cow corner

6

Wood to Williamson, SIX, full ball down leg and the batsman crouched down to help the ball over fine leg for back-to-back sixes. The skipper is going berserk

4

Wood to Williamson, FOUR, he has his own chopper! That was a mini helicopter I say. Full ball tailing in and the batsman whipped his wrists on that to bisect the man at long-on and deep mid

6

to Chapman, SIX, uncorks his wrists into it by shuffling across and the ball has been picked away over deep backward square. First of many sixes to come from the bat of Chapman in international cricket

OT

to Chapman, no run, beaten by the lack of pace. Looked to slog it away but the ball decked in a touch slower as compared to what the batsman expected. The ball thuds him into his upper thigh of his front leg. England have reviewed this. No inside edge or is it? Snicko is undecided on it. They can directly see the ball-tracker. It would be missing I am sure. But the trysts with snicko continues. And finally ball-tracker comes out and missing the sticks! Chapman would stay. England lose their only review.

W

to Williamson, out Bowled!! This over has been a tutorial as to how to bowl at death. He has been bull-headed. He has relied on yorkers and sends the death rattle signal to the batsman as well. Yorkerish delivery, the batsman shuffled across completely exposing all the sticks. But the ball thudded onto the pads and off the pads ricocheted into the sticks. 3 runs and a wicket. England will take it with open arms. Williamson b 72(46) [4s-4 6s-4]

6

Wood to Chapman, SIX, short ball, bad bad ball. The batsman hangs back and hands the bowler six runs to his runs column courtesy a pull. He stayed his crease, pivoted on his back leg and smacked the ball over deep mid for a maximum

D

Wood to Chapman, 2 runs, wristed away uppishly and dropped at deep mid! That was a full ball and the batsman whipped the ball away only for the ball to go towards deep mid. The fielder - Billings - came forward and as the ball dipped on him could not get his fingers under the ball

W

Wood to Chapman, out Caught by Billings!! Short ball, decking in with the angle and the batsman cramped for the pull, finds the man at deep mid. Billings makes amends for the drop earlier. He back stepped a bit to take it easily well inside the ropes. That was a good short ball as there pace and was aimed at the body of the batsman. Chapman c Billings b Wood 20(13) [6s-2]

6

to Seifert, SIX, length ball, misses the mark not by much but the batsman got under it and the bat face opened on impact to send it flying well to the left of the man at sweeper cover

6

to Seifert, SIX, again misses the mark, the batsman was hanging back and goes inside out. Goes over cover and flat for another sixer. The pint-sized dynamite is exploding here
