  West Indies innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal J Charles c Williamson b Bracewell 1 20 16 0 0 6.25
4.5 No half-volleys this time. If this was a shooting competition, Charles might even have scored a perfect 10. He has been bogged down, and is about to play out a second maiden over when he blasts this length ball down the ground. It's timed superbly, but straight to mid-off, and Williamson makes no mistake 17/1
View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Southee 16 28 17 1 1 94.11
6.1 And immediately he has got an lbw decision. After long deliberation, Gayle reviews it. Lovely first delivery from Southee. What a bowling change too. This is a length ball that swings in a little to hit him in front of leg. Umpire Nero has no doubt this is out. Gayle knows he hasn't hit it, he is banking on the ball pitching outside leg when he challenges this call. Replays show it pitched just in. On your bike, Chris 19/2
View dismissal DR Smith c Taylor b Southee 0 12 5 0 0 0.00
6.6 what a bowling change this has been. Southee is on absolute fire. He might even be bowling himself into the Test XI here. Slightly short of a length, just outside off, Smith covers the angle, but this ball leaves him a little, enough to take the edge 20/3
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b NL McCullum 46 93 64 6 1 71.87
26.6 N Mac strikes back. Samuels can't review this. Not that that would have made too much of a difference. Short of a length, pitches middle and leg, skids through, stays slightly low, and turns back in a little to trap him plumb. A good hand from Samuels, but the look on his face said he had done only half the job so far 105/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Boult b Oram 18 47 35 2 0 51.42
17.1 Bravo has succeeded in getting himself out. This is the second time he has tried it. He waits as they check the no-ball, but Oram's foot is well behind as he lands. Short of a length, but Bravo's mind is made up he is going to play that extravagant whip over midwicket that is trademark Bravo. However, the length is not there, and he ends up skying it over mid-on. Enough time for Boult to run back and take it over his shoulder. That ball was closer to a pulling length than driving length 59/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c BB McCullum b Oram 56 111 70 5 1 80.00
42.5 the only loose shot from Pollard perhaps. Well bowled too. Slower-ball bouncer, Pollard makes room, his head falls away as he swings at this, and gets a top edge that is taken comfortably at point. Important innings from Pollard. Mature one too 202/7
View dismissal DC Thomas c Taylor b Nicol 37 59 43 3 1 86.04
40.4 soft dismissal. Low full toss, Thomas has the right idea, looking to chip it cover cover who is in at a short position, but Thomas hits this straight to that man. Anyway, Thomas has done his job. over to Sammy and Russell 190/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Guptill b Boult 26 28 22 1 2 118.18
46.4 full again, driven wide of long-on for twohe has found long-on with this low full toss. Timed really well. It's that half-cock punch that he plays that travels miles. But this time he has failed to get any elevation, and has picked Guptill out at long-on 234/8
View dismissal AD Russell c Guptill b Oram 29 28 16 2 2 181.25
48.4 drilled towards Guptill at long-on again, but this time in the air, and despite the swerve away from him, Guptill takes the catch. Had he missed that, it could have been worth 20 runs in the final equation 258/9
SP Narine not out 6 16 7 0 0 85.71
View dismissal TL Best b Southee 3 6 5 0 0 60.00
49.5 WI are bowled out. Best goes for the big slog sweep, and is cleaned up by a leg-stump yorker 264/10

View dismissal RJ Nicol c Bravo b Sammy 35 48 32 3 2 109.37
10.3 Nicol has had a brain freeze. Sammy has picked up a wicket after coming on to bowl when the heat was on. He goes across the line to play the pick-up shot, but the length - much like Bravo earlier in the day - is a little too short for a front-foot shot. As a result he gets a bit too under it, and finds deep midwicket 63/3
View dismissal MJ Guptill lbw b Best 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
0.6 full, straight, beaten for the pace, and Best has got his wicket. he is down on his knees, looking skyward with arm aloft. What a celebration. Guptill has contributed to the dismissal by playing across the line to a full delivery headed for middle stump. He is a goner as soon as he misses it, but he has also been done in for pace a little 8/1
View dismissal BB McCullum c Sammy b Russell 10 30 18 1 0 55.55
7.2 soft dismissal. There have been quite a few in this series. Slightly short of a lenght, and he goes to pull it, picking the short midwicket with surgical precision. Not the length to pull. And he is not pleased with himself. The PA system at the ground plays, "Hit the road Jack... and don't you come back no more." 50/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* c Sammy b Best 110 185 115 6 5 95.65
48.2 Sammy takes the catch. Taylor perishes. There are people already wanting to invade the pitch. Surely this wins the series for West Indies? Full toss, on off, Taylor wants to hit it for a six over leg, gets a thick edge that is skied to Sammy at point 237/9
View dismissal KS Williamson lbw b Narine 3 13 12 0 0 25.00
13.4 he is gone. Williamson has had a horrid time of it with Narine. He is reviewing this lbw decision, though. Quicker, straighter delivery, no thumb sticking out as Narine goes up for the delivery. Short of a length, but skiddy, and beats Williamson on the pull, which is not quite one. Pitched outside off, hits him in front of off, and that's a review exhausted 75/4
View dismissal TWM Latham c †Thomas b Samuels 32 86 62 1 0 51.61
33.4 Latham has finally succumbed. Three dots in a row draw out a forceful shot to a short-of-a-length delivery just outside off. He is cramped for room, and edges it through to Thomas. This wicket ensures at least one new batsman in the Powerplay 146/5
View dismissal NL McCullum c Sammy b Best 11 23 19 0 0 57.89
38.5 Best can stick his tongue out all he want now. He has got his man. McCullum gets a rare full ball from Best who has bee peppering him with short stuff. He drives, but all he manages is to run it straight to point where Sammy accepts it gleefully 170/6
View dismissal JDP Oram b Best 6 27 18 0 0 33.33
44.5 Best is looking heavenwards again. It's the good old you-miss-I-hit stuff from him. Oram, under pressure from the many dot balls he has faced, makes room, but Best remains full, straight and fast. And he hits the middle stump. Timbahhhh. An underwhelming innings from Oram, who seems to now justify N McCullum's promotion ahead of him 219/7
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell c Pollard b Narine 5 13 9 0 0 55.55
47.1 Bracewell charges at the first ball of Narine's last. Bracewell has made a little too much room as Narine floats this wide outside off, and the mist-hit settles with long-off 234/8
View dismissal TG Southee run out (†Thomas) 3 15 8 0 0 37.50
49.3 from Bravo, West Indies have won their first ODI series against a side other than Bangladesh or Zimbabwe in more than four years. Slower ball, beats the bat, and the keeper completes the run-put after the New Zealand Nos 10 and 11 are confused and both in the middle of the pitch 240/10
