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

New Zealand 1/1   BB McCullum 1* (1b)   A Nehra 0.3-0-1-1

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

New Zealand 4/2   MJ Guptill 0* (3b)   A Nehra 1.2-0-3-2

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   MJ Guptill 4* (9b)   RP Singh 2.5-1-13-1

Yuvraj Singh to Guptill, OUT, Yuvraj strikes in his first over. Fine catch by Rahul at first slip. It was pushed through around off stump, turned a touch and Guptill stabbed it low to left of Rahul who makes a sharp catch look very easy

MJ Guptill c Dravid b Yuvraj Singh 22 (66m 42b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

New Zealand 51/4   GD Elliott 14* (22b)   Yuvraj Singh 1-0-3-1

Yuvraj Singh to Elliott, OUT, quicker one, sliding down the leg side, Elliott misses the flick and Dhoni 'catches' it. Loud appeal and it has been given out. The first replay suggests it was off the pad. Will confirm again after more replays.

GD Elliott c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 22 (66m 39b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.41

New Zealand 66/5   JDP Oram 7* (16b)   Yuvraj Singh 3.3-0-11-2

Sharma to Oram, OUT, Done in by the slower one. It was around 114 kmph, on a length, Oram checked his shot and ended up chipping it straight back to Ishant

JDP Oram c & b Sharma 24 (52m 45b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

New Zealand 101/6   NT Broom 16* (17b)   I Sharma 5.1-2-14-1

Yuvraj Singh to Broom, OUT, and he has struck first up - this is a short innocuous delivery, asking to be hit, which Broom does, but straight and low to Raina at midwicket, who makes no mistake. Dismissals, they don't come softer

NT Broom c Raina b Yuvraj Singh 21 (49m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

New Zealand 116/7   DL Vettori 10* (13b 1x4)   Yuvraj Singh 6.1-0-20-3

Singh to Mills, OUT, No 8. It was a short-of-length delivery moving away from Mills who tried to punch it through the off side but ended up dragging it back to his stumps. It can happen on a slow track such as this. Gary Kirsten applauds from the dressing room.

KD Mills b Singh 6 (22m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

New Zealand 134/8   DL Vettori 21* (28b 1x4)   RP Singh 7-2-19-2

Sharma to Vettori, OUT, Clatter! It landed back of a length around off and middle line and shaped in a touch, Vettori went for an on-the-up drive but pushed his bat outside the line and was beaten as the delivery moved in a touch.

DL Vettori b Sharma 25 (66m 36b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.44

New Zealand 142/9   IG Butler 4* (19b)   I Sharma 8.3-2-21-2

Nehra to Butler, OUT, India need 156 to win. It was the bouncer, Butler tries to upper cut it to third man but succeeds in lobbing a dolly to cover!

IG Butler c Harbhajan Singh b Nehra 6 (41m 31b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.35

New Zealand 155/10   SE Bond 10* (12b 1x4)   A Nehra 8.3-0-24-3
