4

to Guptill, FOUR, lovely shot! Not a better way to get off the mark than a perfect straight drive. Bhuvi goes full and on off, Guptill leans into the forward push, yes just a push and the timing takes the ball away from the mid-on fielder

4

to Guptill, FOUR, now a leading edge. Have to be careful while facing Bhuvi with the new ball. Good length ball on middle, Guptill closed the bat face to work it into the leg-side, a fat leading edge and goes straight of mid-on, races to the fence

6

to Munro, SIX, wow! That is some shot from Munro. This is the reason New Zealand want him to click. Steps across to off and picks the length delivery superbly, the strong bottom hand takes it over the backward square leg fence, all the way

4

to Guptill, FOUR, edged and four! This would have carried comfortably to second slip, if there was one. There isn't and Guptill survives. Back of a length and the ball straightens, Guptill is on the back foot to force it through the off-side, the outside edge flies away to the right of Dhawan at first slip. He went for the catch with a full stretch dive, but was nowhere close to the ball

4

to Munro, FOUR, dropped! Kedar Jadhav the culprit. Straight to him and out she goes. Munro was backing away and followed him, whipped with a lot of bottom hand to deep backward square, Jadhav was placed expertly by Kohli and he parries it away to the fence. Went with both hands over his head and deflected it for a one bounce four. Don't look at Kohli!

4

to Munro, FOUR, Munro advances and shortens the length, the former still manages to get underneath the ball and pull it over mid-wicket, right off the middle and almost a maximum, just bounced inside the rope

4

to Munro, FOUR, you could almost sense that coming. The leash was on and somebody had to cave in and it is Bhuvi who does, provides width on the short delivery that allows Munro to free his arms, slaps it over cover-point and collects a much needed boundary

W

to Munro, out Caught by Karthik!! Munro does not hurt as Kohli. Remember he was dropped by Jadhav early in the innings, but he's not converted it into a big one like Kohli did. Once India got the measure of Munro and how he plays, they kept it simple - short at the body or no pace to work with. It is the latter that buys the wicket, the ball grips in the surface and deceives Munro, who is ages early into the flick shot and the leading edge skies up towards cover-point. DK tracks back, keeps his eyes on the ball and pouches it calmly. He seems like a relieved man after hanging onto that catch. Understandable as he always has bigger pair of mitts while taking these. Munro c Karthik b 28(35) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Guptill, FOUR, edged and safe. Split Dhoni and Dhawan perfectly. can't believe as he looks up at the sky, turns his back and walks away. Should have been a second wicket with a conventional first slip. Back of a length and around off, Guptill goes for the back foot punch and the ball straightens to take the outside edge. Dhawan is standing wide at slip and he didn't even move

OT

Yadav to Guptill, no run, Guptill was very confident as he signalled for the 'T'. He knew that there was an inside edge and umpire Nandan failed to spot it. The traditional chinaman that spins into the right-hander, Guptill prods forward and gets some wood before the ball thuds into the pad

W

Yadav to Williamson, out Caught by Kedar Jadhav!! Huge moment in the game. The young chinaman has removed New Zealand's best batsman. The googly doing the trick for . Landed in the rough and invited Williamson to go for the drive, he obliged and went for it but unfortunately for him he was not in any sort of control, sliced it towards cover, where Jadhav makes no mistake this time. New Zealand needed Williamson to anchor this chase. Williamson c Kedar Jadhav b Yadav 6(8)

4

Yadav to Guptill, FOUR, once more drops the wrong 'un short, this time he provided room also to the batsman, Guptill went back quickly and slapped the cut in front of square. No one at sweeper to cut that off

4

Yadav to Ross Taylor, FOUR, rank long hop and Taylor punishes . The ball sat up nicely for Taylor, he transfered his weight onto the back foot and smashed the pull to deep mid-wicket. Dhawan put in the dive just for the captain, he was nowhere near the ball

W

Pandya to Guptill, out Caught by Karthik!! That is an excellent running catch from Karthik! It is a huge wicket for the Indians. It is Pandya who strikes but this is a fielder's wicket to be honest. The short ball climbs a bit onto Guptill who tries to pull but gets a top edge that goes towards deep square leg. It didn't seem like it would carry but DK charges in from near the ropes and covers a good amount of space to take a fine diving catch moving forward. He is pumped up and why not! They check for the no-ball, Pandya is fine. Guptill c Karthik b Pandya 32(48) [4s-5]

4

Pandya to Latham, FOUR, fine shot! Elegantly timed by Latham to get his first boundary. Short of a length outside off stump, he stands tall and guides it using the pace with an open bat face through backward point. Too much work for sweeper cover to do despite putting in a desperate dive

4

Yadav to Latham, FOUR, good response from Latham! Brings out the conventional sweep and picks the wrong 'un early to execute the stroke with aplomb. Finds the deep backward square leg fence with ease. Top shot!

4

Yadav to Ross Taylor, FOUR, the outside edge but it goes past Dhoni who was going the wrong way. The googly and Taylor is in all sorts of trouble as he gets squared up on the push. MS was expecting the leg break and by the time he realized the variation, the edge flew past him. Surprised that Kohli doesn't have a conventional first slip in place

4

Pandya to Ross Taylor, FOUR, releases the pressure does Taylor! Clever batting as mid on was in the ring. Charges down the track and lofts it cleanly down the ground. Goes to the long-on fence on the bounce

4

Yadav to Latham, FOUR, cracking shot! Latham's sweeping has been flawless and this is a top stroke. Nails the shot with a good stride forward and gets it well in front of square on the leg side

OT

to Ross Taylor, 1 run, a touch quicker through the air. Has Taylor hurrying up deep in the crease as he tucks it to leg. And they take Dhoni chasing on..successfully. A direct hit would've helped the Indians. not backing up foesn't help matters too

4

Pandya to Ross Taylor, FOUR, fine leg's in. And Pandya goes pad-lined. Never smart. Taylor meanwhile piles on the angle, rubbing it with his delicate wrists in nudging it very fine. When you get Dhoni animated you know you've messed up

OT

to Ross Taylor, 2 runs, on the move, down to the pitch of it and whips it through mid-wicket. Back for the second, back for a fifty. Number 38 I am told, one of the more special ones

4

Pandya to Latham, FOUR, followed up with a generous overcook. Latham compounds matters with his walk across the line, gets right behind it and whips, as he places it wide of a diving mid-on..and only one way post that. Another over in sync with the required run-rate

4

to Latham, leg byes, FOUR, slipping down, just a touch. Latham does his best with the shuffle to get some wood. The pad is enough, trickles away, fine, very much so

OT

to Latham, 2 runs, there's the fifty- fourth consecutive in a row. Another length ball nipping onto the pads and glanced away behind square

OT

to Latham, 1 run, drops it to the vacant off-side. Kohli gets on it in a flash, but chucks the ball out at the striker's end without getting into any control. A wide throw ensures that Taylor, despite having given up has a life

4

to Latham, FOUR, through Chahal. And the nuts are coming off the wheel. Was meant to be only a checked drive wide of mid-off, who dives all over it

4

to Latham, FOUR, 133kph, dishes width. A little too much of it. Slapped away, fiercely through point. And the pressure scales tilt

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, walks, head-on into the line. Makes the length into one in his slot and his hands go swinging. Downtown. In a hammer making the umpire take guard

4

Yadav to Latham, FOUR, sees the length is short, and so transitions from the reverse-sweep to the reverse-pull, and does it beautifully. He's swatted that past backward point

OT

Yadav to Ross Taylor, 1 run, picks the googly early and skips to the leg-side to scythe it away, but fails to get a hold. Has to settle for the single off the under-edge. Partnership now 150

6

to Latham, SIX, how well has he picked that up?! It's a superb sweep shot. The ball barely lands a couple of feet in front of him, but Latham still manages to sweep it all the way over deep square leg - teasingly over Manish Pandey

4

Yadav to Latham, FOUR, and there's the reverse-sweep again. He's found a way to counter the Indian spinners all evening. Gets right on top of the ball and swats it fine to the third man boundary

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, big hoick from Taylor after jumping out of the crease. He got near enough to the pitch of the ball, and managed to clear mid-wicket

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, short ball, Taylor is in position quickly and he pulls it backward of square. Fine leg dives across, trying his best, but can't prevent the ball from sliding onto the cushions. There's hardly a murmur from the crowd

6

to Latham, SIX, stylishly whips the ball over wide long-on to jump to 99. Gosh, that looked pretty. Picked the slower ball, and dismissed it with his back leg in the air. New Zealand almost there

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, this has turned into a century hunt as much as anything. Now Taylor gets into the nineties. Back of length outside off, Taylor slashes at it and sends an outside edge running fine to the boundary

OT

to Latham, 1 run, nice little clip off the pads to bring up a thoroughly impressive hundred. He came in during a New Zealand wobble, and stabilized the innings superbly along with Taylor, never letting the scoreboard stall. The dressing room is on its feet. Off comes the helmet, and up go the arms. Really well done

OT

to Ross Taylor, leg byes, 1 run, Taylor has swung right across one, only to be hit on the pad. There was no appeal from ; instead, there was a demand. He seemed flabbergasted at the decision and signalled the T himself. Kohli obliges too. So here we are.. it's a really close call on 's front foot, but there might just be some part behind the line. No bat involved. The angle though seems to be taking it down leg. Umpire's call, it is, with the ball only clipping leg-stump. Taylor survives, but the prospects of his ton dwindle

OT

to Latham, 1 run, right, here's the single as Latham slaps it to sweeper cover. Even the crowd wakes up. Even they want Taylor to get there

W

to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Chahal!! Ah, these anti-climaxes! Taylor has slapped this straight to Chahal at extra-cover, who takes a really good low catch. Nevertheless, a fine knock from the veteran player. But alas, he misses out on what would have been his first ODI ton in India. Ross Taylor c Chahal b 95(100) [4s-8]

4

to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, good length just outside off, heaved away to the boundary. New Zealand stun India to bring up the highest successful run-chase at the Wankhede

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, smashed. And timed too. A long half-volley by , looking for swing, there's none and it presents Dhawan with a scoring chance, driven through cover and right into the gap. Raced away

W

to Dhawan, out Caught by Latham!! Nicked and gone. Good catch by Latham too. Remember he is just a part-time keeper and the ball was flying off the edge. The pressure of the dots has got to Dhawan and he attempts a flashy back foot punch to a rising delivery outside off and edges it. Since the Wankhede always aids pace and bounce, the keeper had to show good reflexes to glove that which he did with aplomb. Early wicket for New Zealand and KW exults. Dhawan c Latham b 9(12) [4s-1]

6

to Rohit, SIX, bigger ground and another day, Rohit would've found fine leg to perfection. Good short delivery on the head, Rohit top-edges the pull and is lucky to see the ball lob the leaping Adam Milne who was backtracking to catch it one-handed. Just enough to get it over the pacer. The crowd get going with that hit

6

to Rohit, SIX, can't believe it. This is timed much better, another short delivery, slightly down leg and Rohit is in no mood to let that go, pulls and beats Milne's one-handed attempt at fine leg. Too much power and pace on the shot and despite Milne's best effort, he couldn't even get a finger on that. A flat six

W

to Rohit, out Bowled!! Bowled neck and crop. That's what swing and Rohit's lack of patience can do. He was in a mood to hit everything today. Doesn't account for 's late swing or the fact that the left-arm swinger is bowling beautifully at the moment. This is a superb delivery and a horrid shot which compounds matters. Swung in late and beat the ugly slog to peg the off stump back. Looked a poor shot and on replays it only looks worse. is all smiles though. Rohit b 20(18) [6s-2]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, long overpitched delivery outside off and Kohli times it superbly. Had to beat short cover and a man behind him and he does so easily. Pressure-releaser that one

4

to Kedar Jadhav, leg byes, FOUR, taking evasive action was Kedar Jadhav, as the short ball came at his chest, it ricochets off the body and splits keeper and wide slip. A dive from Boult isn't good enough and India will get four extra runs

4

Grandhomme to Kohli, FOUR, ooh! That was mighty close. And it is Guptill at backward point too. But the drive away from the body went wi of him, to his left and raced away beating the third man fielr. Not to the pitch of it was Kohli and the bat face opened on impact. Got lucky

4

Grandhomme to Kohli, FOUR, liberately run down and four more. Saw that third man was wi and used the width to gui it, the dive from the sub Tom Bruce isn't good enough and Kohli gets consecutive fours

4

to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, that is laced with danger. The shot which brings both the stumps and slip into play. But how well has Kedar Jadhav played that. Magnificently I must say. The latest of late cuts, taking it from the nose of off and steering it low and beating Ross's right hand as well. is bewildered as to how the batsman managed such a shot and got four for it

W

to Kedar Jadhav, out Caught&Bowled!! That's Kedar Jadhav for you in a nutshell. One moment blinding brilliance followed by the horribly horrible. This is how kids play in their backyard, when they give catches to their mates. Nothing delivery, tossed up and full on the stumps, Kedar Jadhav has gifted a return catch. The tamest way he could get out and he has managed to do so. Even must be surprised at how easily he got that wicket. He won't mind it though and India slump further. Must say Kedar Jadhav was all at sea from ball one today and could've got out at any point. Kedar Jadhav c and b 12(25) [4s-1]

4

to Karthik, FOUR, there's a lot of ground for sweeper to cover to his left and he doesn't get there. Trifle short outside off, Karthik cuts and beats point to his right and the timing on the shot takes it to the boundary

4

Grandhomme to Karthik, FOUR, both mid-off and mid-on are insi and that's a checked drive in the air which has raced off the bat. On a length and Karthik on the walk, timed it very well and found the gap to mid-on's left

D

Grandhomme to Kohli, 2 runs, dropped by Santner at cover. He has a big smile on his face. Wasn't a difficult catch too. Driving on the rise was Kohli and didn't keep it down, probably Santner didn't expect it to come so quickly at him, by the time he put his hands up, it flicked the end and ran away. That is a big miss

4

to Karthik, FOUR, bad ball to start off. Short and wide outside off, cut away hard and into the gap, sweeper had no chance and that's a gift for Karthik who cashed in

6

to Kohli, SIX, the crowd are awoken by that hit and also by the brilliant one-handed take outside the boundary by the young ballkid. Sits down and then wrings his hand. The replays on the big screen give him his share of spotlight. A member of the BlackCaps has a word with him too. Instantly he has become a star. This was a good short delivery and Kohli got inside the line to pull, didn't bother to keep it down and it beat fine leg, but the ballkid took a blinder and lapped up all the applause!

4

to Kohli, FOUR, too full and that's gloriously driven past the bowler. Just a forward push and the ball went right off the middle of the bat. Mid-on was in and it raced away. Steely determined look in Kohli's eyes as he raises the bat to acknowledge the applause of the crowd on him reaching fifty. He is up for it today and that is showing in the way he is batting out there

4

to Karthik, FOUR, short and sat up to be hit, Karthik didn't hold back and smashed it to the deep square fence. Picked the length so quickly there. He looks to be in good touch

W

to Karthik, out Caught by Munro!! Good catch at fine leg. At last a top edge goes to hand. saw Rohit get away twice in a row, but this time DK fails to control the pull. Took it from outside off and the ball was rising as he lay bat on ball, Munro charged forward and reverse-cupped it, a slight fumble but he clutches it onto his tummy and heaves a sigh of relief. That's a wicket at just the wrong time for India when the stand was looking good. Karthik c Munro b 37(47) [4s-4]

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, cut and cut superbly. Short and wide outside off, rare bad ball from , Dhoni whiplashes a square cut over backward point and gives third man running around no chance

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, well-controlled pull. Bisects fine leg and deep square leg. This short delivery didn't rise enough to give Dhoni trouble, he rolls his wrists and punishes it, raced away

4

to Kohli, FOUR, what a shot that is. Not a bad ball at all but Kohli's wrists of dynamite take over. Swipes the off-cutter wide of mid-wicket and deep mid-wicket running around near the fence can only fetch the ball back. That is a stunning blow

W

to Dhoni, out Caught by Guptill!! MS goes. Stunned silence in the crowd. He is disappointed too. Shortish length delivery outside off, Dhoni went for an ambitious on the rise punch, failed to keep it down and Gups at backward point is one of the best in the world in that region. Hangs on and immediately his body language gives out an impression that he almost failed to spot it - it came with the crowd as a backdrop. gets another big wicket. He has been just too good today. Dhoni c Guptill b 25(42) [4s-2]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, lucky, Kohli gets lucky. Went for a big lofted hit to a full delivery on the stumps, thick inside edge misses the stumps and runs away to the fence. and Kohli share wry smiles. Both know how close it was

4

to Kohli, FOUR, consecutive fours and now a top-edge. Beats Latham who was leaping to glove it. Was a very good short ball, Kohli didn't want to pull that so fine, but the pace on that took the edge and ran away to the fine leg fence. Just a hit away now from a 100

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, monster hit. Right in the hitting zone, on the stumps, Hardik Pandya clears his feet and launches a booming hit into the long-on stands. That came right off the screws

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, 100 for King Kohli in his 200th ODI! Is too exhausted to even celebrate in his own exuberant way. Is relieved more than anything else. A raised fist and a raise of the arms to soak in all the applause. This man has a sense for the occasion, isn't it? On the big day, in inhuman conditions, he has played a most unlike innings to bring up a 100, battling the odds, weather, heat, opposition and what not. No praise is too high for this man. The smile from Ravi Shaz and the how did he do it look from Dhawan convey the true worth of the innings. Do check that out. Got there with a pull to deep fine leg and managed to keep it down. Then came the subdued celebration!

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, that is an agricultural blow, but that is Hardik Pandya. Came the slower delivery and Pandya had to wait for it for an age, then somehow swatted it like a fly, like how you shoo away mosquitoes with a bat, beats the despairing dive of Milne at long-on. Too much power and the ball went under the body

4

to Kohli, FOUR, now he will show off. On a length and outside off, lifted beautifully over cover. All timing and into the deep cover fence

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Williamson!! That is a stunner from KW. Running back from cover I think. Hardik Pandya skied that miles, KW called for it as there were two others converging on it, but it is the captain who does the catching and what a catch it is too. Kept his eyes on the ball all the way and then as the ball was falling over his shoulder, he managed to cup it. Two hands to it and a big wicket for Pandya can do some serious damage. picks up his fourth. But this is more of KW's wicket than 's for the sheer brilliance of the catch. Hardik Pandya c Williamson b 16(16) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, look at Kohli's reaction. He seems to say "oh what a shot". Was the slower delivery and sat up for Bhuvneshwar, who backed away and thrashed it over cover, nearly went all the way, Bhuvneshwar looks a confident man with the bat

4

to Kohli, FOUR, right in the flicking zone of Kohli, and he goes aerial, uncorks the wrists and lifts it, elevation was there, one bounce over the ropes at deep mid-wicket. can't expect to bowl overpitched deliveries and hope to get away at this stage

D

to Kohli, 1 run, de Grandhomme does well to put his body, face on the line to attempt to catch that. Short and pulled in the air, he went for the catch, it bounced in front of his dive, ricocheted into his chin, a glancing blow and he is up right away

6

to Bhuvneshwar, SIX, when he hit that, looked like he may have holed out to long-on, but the ball carries all the way. A muscled hit that one too, back of a length and rising on the stumps, Bhuvneshwar backs away and gives it his everything. Kohli acknowledges the hit by bowing down to his partner - done in good humor!

6

to Kohli, SIX, can't overpitch and hope to get away. Right in his teeing off zone, Kohli goes dead straight and the windows in the media box take a hammering. That came off the middle of the bat and soared a long way. missed his mark, Kohli didn't

W

to Kohli, out Caught by Boult!! End of Kohli. Should be one of his best hundreds in any format. Considering everything. If ever there was an innings which deserved a standing ovation, then this one deserves every inch of everyone standing up to applaud him. He walks off too tired to even say anything. Found long-on with a flat hit, another length ball, Kohli's bottom hand took over, but picked out Boult. Good reverse-cup catch. Not a soul sitting at the Wankhede as Kohli makes his way back. Kohli c Boult b 121(125) [4s-9 6s-2]

4

to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR, top-edge and four. Over short fine, keeps going for the short one and if the top-edge is found, then it always will run away especially when the fielder is inside the ring

6

to Bhuvneshwar, SIX, six more. This is brilliant hitting from Bhuvneshwar. Waits on the crease. Waits for the ball to arrive and swings it way back into the deep square leg stands. Connected that meatily and the fielder was just a spectator there. The crowd going mental at the Wankhede

W

to Bhuvneshwar, out Caught by Henry Nicholls!! Has that carried? Looks like it. Bhuvneshwar went for the pull, was a flat hit, and it needed a forward dive from deep mid-wicket, who took it inches from the ground. Excellent catch from Nicholls. ends an expensive spell with a wicket to round off things. Bhuvneshwar c Henry Nicholls b 26(15) [4s-2 6s-2]
