ICC World Cup, 1999 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 10th match, Group B

Australia v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)


Dale to Horne, OUT, pitching just outside off stump, seaming in a little, thru the gate at waist height, thru to the keeper, appeal, and Shep says "yes, it brushed the glove"

MJ Horne c †Gilchrist b Dale 5 (5m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

New Zealand 5/1   NJ Astle 0* (0b)   AC Dale 0.2-0-0-1


Fleming to Astle, OUT, driving at it on the stumps, thick edge travels straight to Ponting at point, Astle's run of garbage scores in the WCs continues

NJ Astle c Ponting b Fleming 4 (25m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 21/2   CD McMillan 10* (21b 1x4)   DW Fleming 3.1-0-14-1


McGrath to Fleming, OUT, a beautiful delivery, cast that one in stone, an outswinger to the left hander, Fleming couldn't adjust quick enough, yorker length, cleans up the leg stump, fantastic stuff

SP Fleming b McGrath 9 (34m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

New Zealand 47/3   CD McMillan 27* (52b 3x4)   GD McGrath 2.4-0-8-1


Warne to McMillan, OUT, not the shot to play when you have a busted hamstring, trying to sweep, then aborted it short, turns into an awful shot, mistimed into the air, Fleming dives forward with an excellent catch at mid on

CD McMillan c Fleming b Warne 29 (59m 55b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.72

New Zealand 49/4   RG Twose 0* (2b)   SK Warne 0.3-0-2-1


Fleming to Cairns, OUT, going for another huge six, definitely after a net run rate improvement, skies it very high, Dale takes a top backward running catch from mid off

CL Cairns c Dale b Fleming 60 (111m 77b 5x4 3x6) SR: 77.92

New Zealand 197/5   RG Twose 74* (94b 9x4)   DW Fleming 7.1-1-34-2
