  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RJ Nicol c Sibanda b Ncube 14 26 19 3 0 73.68
5.3 lovely catch by Sibanda to give Ncube a maiden ODI wicket. Not that this is what you can call a fielder's wicket alone. Ncube stays short of a length even as Nicol charges at him, the bounce and the line cramp him up, and he ends up slicing it square on the off side. Sibanda runs back from point - turns around and runs - and takes it over his shoulder 25/2
View dismissal BJ Watling run out (Waller) 0 3 0 0 0 -
0.2 Meth to Nicol, Diamond duck for Watling. Nicol has sold him down the river. Pushes to short midwicket, takes three-four solid strides down the wicket, and then says no. Watling has nowhere to go but to hope that Waller misses. Waller hits the stumps direct 1/1
View dismissal BB McCullum c †Mutizwa b Ncube 18 31 19 3 0 94.73
7.1 that's a ripper, lovely bowling from the debutant. Short of a length outside off, kicks off and holds its line. McCullum is drawn into pushng at it, and is done in by the straightening of the ball. Huge appeal right away, McCullum doesn't walk, but the umpire sends him on his way. A thin edge it seems like 41/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* b Ncube 119 177 126 9 3 94.44
49.4 Taylor is bowled, which also means KW won't get a hundred. Back to Taylor, though. It's a lenght ball, the kind he sometimes hits for sixes blindfolded. But he misses this, and the middle stump goes for a walk 319/5
View dismissal JD Ryder c & b Waller 53 76 68 5 1 77.94
27.4 Leading edge. This seems to be angling into the pads, I don't see much turn, but Ryder has closed the face a touch early, and lobs back an easy return catch. Ryder is slow as Inzi on his walk back 124/4

View dismissal V Sibanda c BB McCullum b NL McCullum 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 this is catching practice really. There is a short midwicket in place, the ball is flighted on middle and off, it is turning, and with the turn he offers a simple catch to B McCullum to make it an all McCullum dismissal. Unlike Watling, though, Sibanda gets a regulation, non-exotic duck 0/1
View dismissal H Masakadza b Oram 36 102 56 3 0 64.28
25.4 Silence. You can hear a chair creek at Queen's. Masakadza slogs across one, Oram stays straight. On a length it pitches, beats the swinging bat, and hits top of middle 159/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c NL McCullum b McKay 75 68 65 7 2 115.38
17.6 What a catch. These McCullums have wings, man. Taylor tries to clear mid-off, and seems like he will do it. Nathan McCullum, though, waits for a second, and then times his jump go perfection to make this catch look easy 100/2
View dismissal T Taibu c BB McCullum b McKay 53 53 39 4 2 135.89
29.6 These McCullum brothers have magnets or what? Poor analogy because the ball is not metal. Anyway, another catch for the McCullums, and what a big wicket. Taibu looks for the inside-out drive, hits it uppishly, and B McCullum dives to his left to take this. That's four catches between the brothers out of the five wickets to fall 183/5
View dismissal F Mutizwa c NL McCullum b Nicol 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
26.4 Boy these McCullums are flying everywhere. This is short, turns a touch extra, hurries him into the an uppish flick, and N McCullum goes parallel to his left to make this catch happen. He even manages to make it look easy 164/4
MN Waller not out 99 108 74 10 1 133.78
View dismissal E Chigumbura b Oram 47 64 43 3 3 109.30
43.6 Oh what have you done Elton? Length ball all right, but he swipes across it, the head falls away, the bat swings down the wrong line, and the middle stump is uprooted. The usually soft-spoken Oram has a lot to say now. Not sure if it is directed at Chigumbura 295/6
View dismissal KO Meth b Woodcock 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
44.3 poor poor cricket from Meth. Charges at him without any purpose. Woodcock bowls a straight length ball, he wafts down the wrong line, and is bowled. Mindless really 296/7
View dismissal N Mushangwe b Woodcock 7 9 10 0 1 70.00
46.5 Stunned silence again. Natsai jumps out of the crease and swings blindly again. Middle stump knocked over. Woodcock is elated, Waller looks on 308/8
View dismissal RW Price c BB McCullum b Oram 2 15 7 0 0 28.57
49.4 the game stays alive, but Price might have done just enough. Short of a length, Price tries to clear the leg-side field. The top edge goes nowhere, but Waller makes sure he moves to the striking end by the time the catch is taken 328/9
