New Zealand 101/2   LRPL Taylor 1* (1b)

BMAJ Mendis to Taylor, 1 run, flat delivery on middle and off, played towards long on for a single


BMAJ Mendis to Taylor, no run, defended back to the bowler on the front foot


BMAJ Mendis to Taylor, 2 runs, Taylor pushes the ball off the front foot towards wide long on and has enough time to turn for the second

BAW Mendis to Taylor, 1 run, short ball outside off stump, cut off the back foot past point


BAW Mendis to Taylor, 2 runs, nudged off the pads towards mid-on, the fielder had to run in from the deep so there was time for the second, 24 runs off that over

New Zealand 133/2   LRPL Taylor 7* (6b)

Dananjaya to Taylor, 2 runs, another full toss outside off, Nicol leans towards the off side and paddles towards fine leg


Dananjaya to Taylor, 1 leg bye, Nicol moves towards the off to slog sweep but misses and is hit on the pad, that pitched outside leg stump


Dananjaya to Taylor, 2 runs, Taylor moves forward and towards the off side to work the ball through midwicket, they attempt a risky second


Dananjaya to Taylor, 2 runs, a full toss and Taylor delicately paddles it past Ajantha Mendis at short fine leg, he's probably saving his big hits for the later overs

New Zealand 141/3   LRPL Taylor 13* (10b)

Malinga to Taylor, 1 run, full and straight, played to the fielder at deep square leg, hit all along the ground


Malinga to Taylor, FOUR, too full and too much on leg stump, Taylor glances the ball off the pads with almost no backlift, using the pace to find the fine leg boundary


Malinga to Taylor, 1 run, there's an awful mix-up and the fielding is poor too. Taylor played the ball straight to Mahela at midwicket and ran. Mahela threw the ball too high to Malinga, who failed to catch the ball to run out the batsman. Mahela should have gone for the direct hit, Malinga wasn't in the best position

New Zealand 149/3   LRPL Taylor 19* (13b 1x4)

Kulasekara to Taylor, 1 wide, the slower ball but it is down leg side, too far away to for Taylor to connect with the slog sweep


Kulasekara to Taylor, FOUR, the yorker outside off stump, Taylor jams his bat down on it and squeezes it to the third man boundary


Kulasekara to Taylor, OUT, bowled him with the slower ball! Taylor had finished swinging across the line by the time the ball reached him. He was on the front foot and played much too early, Kulasekara hit leg stump. That slower ball was out of the back of the hand

LRPL Taylor b Kulasekara 23 (26m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

New Zealand 154/4   LRPL Taylor 23 (15b 2x4)
