Compaq Cup - 2nd match

India v New Zealand

India won by 6 wickets (with 57 balls remaining)

2.3

Nehra to Taylor, no run, around 133 kmph, lands outside off and moves away, left alone

2.4

Nehra to Taylor, 1 run, short in length, on the hips, tucked behind square-leg for a single

New Zealand 5/2   LRPL Taylor 1* (2b)

3.1

Singh to Taylor, FOUR, almost caught at square-leg. It held its line on the leg and middle line, Taylor was getting too much across, fell over a touch, got his bat around the front pad and some how manages to wrist it past the lunging Yusuf Pathan

3.2

Singh to Taylor, no run, fuller, looking for that lbw again, Taylor drives to mid-on

3.3

Singh to Taylor, no run, swings in a touch, moves in to hit the pad but clearly going down the leg side

3.4

Singh to Taylor, no run, in the channel outside off stump, goes past the outside edge and Dhoni, the wicketkeeper, collects

3.5

Singh to Taylor, no run, another one in the zone, Taylor looks initially to play at it before withdrawing his bat inside the line.

3.6

Singh to Taylor, FOUR, edged but it falls short of Sachin at first slip. Another full delivery angling away, Taylor pushes at it and nicks it to the left of the diving SRT who couldn't stop it from running away to the boundary

New Zealand 13/2   LRPL Taylor 9* (8b 2x4)

4.4

Nehra to Taylor, no run, length delivery on the middle, Taylor stabs it to his pad. He has been trying for that lbw, now I reckon one would go across Taylor

4.5

Nehra to Taylor, no run, This one does move away a fraction and Taylor leans across to push it to the covers

4.6

Nehra to Taylor, no run, high bouncer on the leg stump line, Taylor ducks under it

New Zealand 14/2   LRPL Taylor 9* (11b 2x4)

5.2

Singh to Taylor, no run, gets forward to push a length delivery to mid-off

5.3

Singh to Taylor, 2 runs, There is the Taylor swat that we have come to expect from him. He picked the full length delivery from outside off and went for the big across-the-line swing and edges it past square-leg

5.4

Singh to Taylor, no run, short in length, moving outside off stump, guided to backward point where DKarthik makes the stop

5.5

Singh to Taylor, OUT, NZ continue to wobble here. Taylor has been nicked out. It landed short of length and left Taylor who pushed at it; he did try to withdraw his bat at the last minute but it was too late by then. Edge and gone. Dhoni lunged to his right to collect that.

LRPL Taylor c †Dhoni b Singh 11 (15m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

New Zealand 19/3   LRPL Taylor 11 (15b 2x4)
