  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Masakadza b Panyangara 11 16 17 2 0 64.70
3.5 beauty, and that is gone. Goes wide of the crease, angles it in on a fourth-stump line, and gets it to straighten just a touch. Guptill presses forward and pokes at it, away from his body, and Masakadza accepts the simple, waist-high chance at slip gleefully 20/1
View dismissal TWM Latham b Chibhabha 14 37 19 3 0 73.68
8.5 Chibhabha strikes, the short ball does it. Latham went for the pull from outside off, but the lack of pace defeated him, and he ended up bottom-edging it into his stumps 39/2
View dismissal KS Williamson* b Panyangara 97 124 102 11 1 95.09
36.3 and he's bowled! It was a length ball, angling in from outside off. Unwisely, he tried to dab that down to third man, playing with half a bat, and ended up chopping it onto his stumps. WAIT. HANG ON. Is that a no-ball? It's very close, but there's a tiny sliver of Panyangara's heel behind the line, and Williamson has to trudge back to the dressing room 176/3
LRPL Taylor not out 112 168 122 6 3 91.80
View dismissal GD Elliott run out (Williams/†Chakabva) 43 43 32 3 1 134.37
45.6 from Chibhabha, slower ball outside off, and for the third time the ball is slapped towards sweeper cover. This time it was hit closer to the fielder, Williams, and they take his arm on again, go for a second, and that was most unwise. The diving Elliott was a fair way from the crease when Chakabva picked up the throw and disturbed the bails 255/4

View dismissal H Masakadza c †Ronchi b McCullum 84 135 99 10 0 84.84
34.6 gone this time! what an important wicket. Nathan McCullum strikes again. Tosses it up outside off and it drifts on with the arm and a thin outside edge is taken. Good catch by Ronchi too. What a massive strike just before drinks too. 194/2
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha b McCullum 42 56 48 5 0 87.50
14.5 gone this time! Huge wicket. Lots of spin from outside off, and spins back in. Chamu gets on the front foot and tries to hit it through cover, doesn't account for the volume of spin and it beats his inside edge and sneaks through to knock back the stumps. Good stand but good timely wicket for NZ too. 74/1
CR Ervine not out 130 150 108 11 5 120.37
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c Guptill b McCullum 26 45 31 1 1 83.87
44.6 gone this time. Tries to clear long-on again but gets nowhere near the boundary. Guptill runs in and takes a good, low catch. He got too close to the ball and couldn't get enough elevation, in fact hardly any at all. 260/3
