Compaq Cup - 2nd match

India v New Zealand

India won by 6 wickets (with 57 balls remaining)

0.1

Nehra to McCullum, 1 run, full inswinger to start the proceedings, McCullum gets forward rather hesitantly and pushes it off the inner half of the bat to the on side

0.2

Nehra to Ryder, no run, around the off stump, full, no movement this time, defended to the off side

0.3

Nehra to Ryder, OUT, Umpire Dharmasena has sent Ryder on his way. Lbw. It landed full on the off and middle line and moved in to hit Ryder in front of the middle. Ryder was looking to play across the line and is a dead duck. It would have crashed into the leg stump.

JD Ryder lbw b Nehra 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.4

Nehra to Guptill, no run, full in length, on the off stump line, Guptill pushes it out to the off side

0.5

New Zealand 1/1   A Nehra 1-0-1-1

2.1

Nehra to McCullum, 2 runs, bangs it in short as he sees McCullum charging out and it's swatted past square-leg for couple of runs

2.2

Nehra to McCullum, OUT, That's the 100th ODI wicket for Nehra. It landed on a length on the leg and middle and hit him in right in front of the middle. Plumb. And it appears as if it did hit the pad first too. What a comeback this is proving for Nehra after years in wilderness.

BB McCullum lbw b Nehra 3 (10m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

2.3

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

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
