4

to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan edges and gets four. Slashed hard at that and went with a horizontal bat - that's why it flew over the slips. Last game he had attempted the same shot with a semi-horizontal bat and edged it behind. No such problems this time. Gets off the mark with four and gets India going as well

4

to Rohit, FOUR, when you bowl that short, you can't trouble Rohit. He is probably the best player of the pull and the hook in this team. Takes it on and smashes it one bounce over the ropes to the deep backward square leg fence

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, can't bowl there to Dhawan. Even if you are attempting to swing the new ball. This one doesn't and ends up drifting into the pads, flicked emphatically past square leg

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, top shot. Low backlift and a power packed back foot punch. Went back and across and shortened the length even more. Between point and cover. Raced away

W

to Rohit, out Caught by Munro!! What a soft dismissal that is. Rohit's missus's mouth is wide open in bewilderment - watching on. Rohit walks back head bowed. Half-volley on the pads, flicked to Munro who is stationed at a short square leg position. A dolly of a catch and again the Kiwis have an early breakthrough. Rohit c Munro b 7(19) [4s-1]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, just a dug out that was. It was speared in towards off and middle, Kohli got the leg out of the way and then the bat came down to meet the ball. Since mid-on was wide, he had no chance. Kohli is away and running

4

to Dhawan, leg byes, FOUR, poor line and doesn't get away. Brushes the thigh pad after missing the inside edge, beats the diving Latham and runs away

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, nearly all the way. One bounce over the ropes at third man. Dhawan with his feet off the air - a shot that he introduced to the world in the 2013 CT - slashes the shortish delivery and gets four. Third man was too square for Dhawan to be in any danger of getting caught

4

to Kohli, FOUR, while Rohit rarely tries to keep the pull down, Kohli can do that whenever he wants to. This barely raises above waist height and he rolls the wrists to pull past the square leg umpire. Played that into the turf

6

to Dhawan, SIX, is banging it in short and doesn't seem to learn from his mistakes in the previous game. Even though this is rising, Dhawan has hammered this over square leg. Just all the way, but that will do. Unless you get it near the throat, will bleed runs

OT

to Dhawan, no run, huge appeal for caught behind by ; eventually he forces his skipper to take the review after the decision didn't go in his side's favor. Flat line on UltraEdge and Dhawan will survive. Dhawan was early into the pull and the ball missed both the top-edge and the glove. The technology proving the umpire right. was insistent that there was something while the others weren't convinced. After the decision went in Dhawan's favor, has a sheepish smile on his face, with the tongue sticking out. Certainly cost his side a review

6

to Kohli, SIX, looked like a miscue when it went off the bat, but it has landed just beyond the ropes. went round the wicket and banged it in, didn't get the height he wanted, Kohli this time pulled and sort of got it high on the bat, but managed to clear the boundary. Anyway there was no-one patrolling the fence out there

4

to Kohli, FOUR, that has come off the thickish inside half of the bat and look at how it has raced past Southee's dive at mid-on. Credit to Southee too for getting up and chasing that, still can't haul it back in

4

Grandhomme to Dhawan, FOUR, poor livery to Dhawan and he won't miss out. That has been flashed to the ep point fence. Cracking cut and Guptill at backward point didn't even move an inch. That rocketed away off the middle of the bat

W

Grandhomme to Kohli, out Caught by Latham!! Edged and well held by Latham standing up. I can't seem to recollect a similar instance of a dibbly dobbly medium pacer getting Kohli out exactly the same way. Caught behind. Could've happened in the T20 League too. Nothing livery, just a gentle away swinger, Kohli went for a flashy square drive, thin nick and well held by Latham. KW and Grandhomme are elated to bits. That's a big wicket and replays show that it was the cross-seamer from Grandhomme. Kohli c Latham b Grandhomme 29(29) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

Grandhomme to Karthik, FOUR, fine way to get off the mark. Hint of width outsi off, opens the face of the bat and runs it wi of short third man. Once he got it past the man, it was four. Karthik opens his account in style

OT

to Dhawan, wide, what has happened here? Loud appeal for caught behind and given by umpire Chettithody Shamsuddin. Immediately Dhawan reviews. As he walks towards Karthik he shakes his head vigorously with a stern expression on his face which suggests there was no edge. Nothing on UltraEdge. So Dhawan should be fine here. The crowd have seen it on the big screen and they are cheering loudly. Not out! Credit to Shamsuddin for not forgetting it was a wide down leg, despite getting the original call wrong. Dhawan went for a vertical bat sweep down leg and superbly held by Latham. He and were up in a loud fashion and that may have forced the umpire's hand. The review saves Dhawan

OT

to Dhawan, 1 run, 50 for Dhawan. Turns it wide of mid-wicket and gets help from Karthik who sprints and dives to make it at the other end. He would want to convert this into a 100

4

Grandhomme to Karthik, FOUR, that should've been stopped by Gups at backward point. Was full and outsi off, Karthik gets a thick outsi edge on the square drive, went to ground and wasn't far from the opener's right-hand, who tumbled but allowed the ball to sneak through. It beats third man as well. Gups wears a disappointed look on his face

6

to Dhawan, SIX, now Dhawan has woken up after that Shirshendu update. He has had enough of the slower deliveries. Saw two of them and this was outside off, picked the cross-seamer and slugs it over wide long-on. Went all the way as the middle of the bat is found. Fine hit

W

to Dhawan, out Caught by Ross Taylor!! Is that an opening for the Kiwis? comes back and gets Dhawan. Dhawan practices the straight loft after he has spooned one to short cover. Gave the bowler the charge and got too close to the pitch of it, there was no room to free his arms as well, so the bat turned, and that robbed Dhawan off all timing. is delighted and just when the game seemed to be meandering hopelessly towards one side, there's a burst of life injected. Dhawan c Ross Taylor b 68(84) [4s-5 6s-2]

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, hacks it over long-on to get the crowd wild. Flighted ball wide of off, Pandya fetches it effortlessly and gives it a mighty tonk

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, 's short deliveries this series have been a total disaster. No pace, no intent, nothing. Hardik Pandya shuffles across and anticipates it to a certain extent. Pulls hard and beats long leg with ease

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, this is a superb shot. High backlift, and he has timed the back foot punch to a fairly goodish length delivery, backward point and cover-point were mere spectators when the ball met bat and went past them

4

Grandhomme to Karthik, FOUR, top shot to get to 50. A step taken in his effort to put his hand up for the No. 4 spot. In my opinion he should be the undisputed occupant of that spot. Oozes so much class than the other contenrs, that it is almost a mismatch when you compare him to the ones fighting for the same place. Short and wi outsi off, smashes the cut between backward point and cover-point. Just a raise of the bat and that's about it

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Milne!! Swept straight to the fielder at short fine leg. Another soft dismissal in this game. Loopy full-toss, Hardik Pandya went for the paddle and top-edged it. But he has done his job. Leaves with disappointment. Hardik Pandya c Milne b 30(31) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, had he missed that, would've been dead. sprayed it on the pads, Dhoni with his shuffle gets across and flicks, past square leg and it races away. Karthik has a hearty smile on his face after that boundary

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, that's a slog. And it has come off the thickish inside half and beats mid-on diving to his right. Southee with a valiant effort. India get closer

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, that's vintage Dhoni. Still reminding people that there is life still left in the old big dog. A low backlift and a terrific back foot punch past a horde of fielders on the off-side. Pierced the packed cordon to a nicety and the crowd get going

4

to Karthik, FOUR, India level the series in style! Probably the shot of the match to end the game. It was on a fullish length outside off, Karthik gets forward and creams the cover-drive to perfection. High elbow and all that other attributes which make him such a joy and a frustration to watch - when he flops. Races away past cover and into the fence. Sheer timing and the fans in Pune break into a cheer after nearly dozing off for the last few minutes when there were dots being played with regularity

4

to Guptill, FOUR, lovely shot! That shot gives you a general idea about the surface. Not much of width on offer, Guptill stood tall to punch the short of length delivery through cover-point. Straight bat and the high elbows - textbook stuff from Guptill

4

to Guptill, FOUR, and again. He pierced the field to perfection. Short and just a bit of width this time, Guptill cracks it on the up square on the off-side. None of the fielders moved

6

to Munro, SIX, this is where Munro is dangerous. He is not afraid to charge the pacers. Does so and gets to the pitch of the ball, once he's done that the rest follows easily, smashed over the bowler for a biggie

W

to Guptill, out Caught by Dhoni!! That's a typical Bhuvi wicket. Any swing on offer and he's a master to exploit it. Guptill could have done better though. The outswinger on off-stump, Guptill had to play that, he prods across tentatively and leaves his bat hanging away from the body, the outside edge is found and the ball just about carries to Dhoni. Guptill should have had a bigger stride forward to negate the swing and the bat also closer to the body. Nonetheless, an early breakthrough for India. Guptill c Dhoni b 11(9) [4s-2]

W

to Williamson, out Lbw!! Williamson threw his head back as soon as the finger was raised. He knew it was tough to get away with that one. However, he still went for the review and since it is umpire's call, New Zealand don't lose their review. Excellent bowling from . It seemed like a plan from both pacers to target Williamson on the stumps. got it spot on, back of a length and tailing in, Williamson is beaten on the flick shot and the ball thuds into the front pad. Height might have been an issue, but ball-tracking showed it to be kissing the bails. Early troubles for New Zealand. Williamson lbw b 3(14)

W

to Munro, out Bowled!! This is top class bowling. The perfect set-up from Bhuvi. Softened the batsman by angling a couple of short deliveries from round the wicket and then switched back, slipped in the slower delivery and went through the batsman's defenses. The knuckle ball on back of a length, hits the seam and holds its line, Munro is caught in the crease, the bat comes down early and hence the inside edge is found, deflected off the back pad onto the leg-bail. New Zealand slide further, three down and we are just seven overs into the game. Munro b 10(17) [6s-1]

4

to Latham, FOUR, that's the shot of a man in form. "A run after 13 deliveries," informs Murali Kartik on air. On a length and outside off, Latham drives it on the up and caresses it through extra cover. The timing and placement exquisite

4

Pandya to Ross Taylor, FOUR, wide half volley and Taylor cashes in. He had the width to free his arms and drills the drive past a diving DK at cover, no chance for mid-off to cut that off as well

4

Pandya to Ross Taylor, FOUR, no one at sweeper cover and Taylor takes advantage of that. Provides a bit of width outside off, Taylor takes a step out and punches it crisply through cover. DK gave up the chase very early

W

Pandya to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Dhoni!! The match-winning partnership in Mumbai does not flourish in Pune. Pandya has another wicket with a short ball. He seems to get an awful lot of wickets with that delivery. Short and drifting down leg, Taylor was inside the line and hence decides to take it on, the ball keeps rising and takes the glove on the way to Dhoni. Taylor walked as soon as he saw the catch completed and did not wait for the umpire. Pandya celebrates and India have their fourth. Ross Taylor c Dhoni b Pandya 21(33) [4s-2]

4

Jadhav to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, getting too predictable is Jadhav. Round-armish, not getting great deal of purchase off the pitch, Nicholls jumps back a fraction and that allows him to smash the short delivery wide of cover

4

Pandya to Latham, FOUR, a bad ball and deserved punishment. Short and slipping down leg, Latham doesn't get all of it - on the swivel-pull - but dragged it off the bottom half into the fine leg fence

D

to Latham, no run, dropped! MS huffs and puffs for he knew there was an edge. slowed it up further and landed it on a perfect length, Latham was half-forward and he tried to smother it into the off-side. Got the faintest of edges which MS couldn't cling on. It hits the glove and juggles onto his chest and drops dead

4

to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, pitches it short and Nicholls latches onto it. Is quick to rock and back and nail the cut through covers. Chahal's dive goes in vain

W

to Latham, out Bowled!! As they say: Change of angle has worked wonders. Loops it up in the air, pitches outside leg and knocks the top of middle. Latham got carried away with the sweep shots and he could have gotten away had he covered for the line. Was too far across and since the ball pitched outside leg, sweeping from off or anything far from off would have been too overambitious. Nice change of tactic from . Nothing special about the delivery. Slowed it up and and bowled a perfect slider - from Jaddu's textbook. Latham b 38(62) [4s-2]

4

to de Grandhomme, FOUR, that's the shot Angelo Mathews plays so well. A whip-flick, gets forward slightly and dismisses the overpitched delivery through mid-wicket

4

to de Grandhomme, FOUR, clever batting this from de Grandhomme. There's no-one at deep mid-wicket and what does he do? Comes dancing down the pitch and whiplashes it ala Steve Smith over mid-wicket. Didn't get all of it, but does it matter?

4

to de Grandhomme, FOUR, short and angled in, de Grandhomme opened the bat face, and the key was he timed it to perfection which ensured it raced off to the fence in a giffy

4

to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, makes plenty of room outside off and clobbers the ball from off-stump. Smart use of the crease

6

to de Grandhomme, SIX, when de Grandhomme hits, it stays hit. Sheer muscle power. Didn't seemed to have timed it well, but all those fitness sessions showing up some great results now. A loft from the crease and way she goes into the stands over long-on. Replays show it came off the cue end of the bat

4

Jadhav to de Grandhomme, FOUR, that's a golf-hit. Saw the ball dip and hacked it over mid-wicket with a flick of the wrists

4

to de Grandhomme, FOUR, four more for de Grandhomme. He's built up some really good momentum for NZ ever since his arrival. Excellent batting. Full ball angled in at the stumps, de Grandhomme flicks it crisply through mid-wicket. What timing

OT

to Henry Nicholls, 1 run, horribly judged single from these two and de Grandhomme would have been out by a mile with a direct-hit. Maybe they took Jadhav for granted at point, but he was quickly onto the ball, much quicker than either of them anticipated. The problem was he had just one stump to aim at

W

to Henry Nicholls, out Bowled!! Ducks it back in, right through Nicholls's gate and this is as comprehensive as you get from Kumar. Maybe a hint of reverse-swing from round the wicket, the ball tails in late and there's an appreciable gap between bat and pad as Nicholls looks to go down the ground. The leg-stump is sent flying. Henry Nicholls b 42(62) [4s-3]

4

to Santner, FOUR, it's a short ball outside off, and it runs away off the edge down to the third man boundary. Santner went really hard at the cut, and there was no one at slip. Not sure if that would have helped

6

to Santner, SIX, clears the ropes! A mighty slog-sweep from Santner after finding the ball right in his slot. He didn't have to reach out either, it was right in his zone on off-stump. Dhoni goes up to to have a word

W

to de Grandhomme, out Caught by Bumrah!! is so, so good at this. There's a reason why he's successful in the death overs. He's able to identify the batsman's preferred hitting areas, and then has the control to bowl it where he wants. Tosses the ball up generously, but the key is the line. It's pretty wide outside off, making de Grandhomme reach out for the lofted extra-cover drive. It turns further away to take a thick outside edge and nestles in short third man's hands. de Grandhomme c Bumrah b 41(40) [4s-5 6s-1]

W

to Milne, out Lbw!! Milne reviews after being given LBW first ball, but I doubt he's getting away from this. He went up to Santner to think over it, which means there shouldn't be an inside edge. No inside edge. The line seemed fairly adjacent in real time, and it's no different on replays. So it's two in two for . Nicely drifting the ball in past the inside edge, and then getting it to straighten on middle and leg. It was pushed through quicker, and the lower-order player wasn't able to adapt. Milne lbw b 0(1)

D

to Santner, no run, the full toss is hit back hard towards who uses his hands as much to protect himself, as much he did to catch it

4

to Southee, FOUR, he has no clue what he's doing, but will still get the boundary. Back of length delivery, Southee walked out slightly in an effort to heave it away, but he's clearly in no control. Thick inside edge past leg-stump, into the fine leg boundary

4

to Santner, FOUR, wants to heave a back of length delivery through mid-wicket, but these are short, skiddy Indian bowlers. It doesn't get up too high, and runs away off a thick under-edge past leg-stump

6

to Southee, SIX, he's got hold of this one.. all the way! Another slower ball, Southee seemed to have picked it before launching it over deep mid-wicket. Handy

W

to Santner, out Caught by Kohli!! Full at the stumps, Santner clears his front leg probably in a bid to loft it much wider - over extra-cover - but ends up hitting it straight down Kohli's throat at long-off. This was probably the one ball that he could have gotten under nicely, and he missed out. Santner c Kohli b 29(38) [4s-2 6s-1]

OT

to Southee, leg byes, 1 run, full and fast on leg-stump, whizzes past Southee's flick to thud the pad and deflects to fine leg. India go for the review, but it's missing leg-stump
