ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group 1

New Zealand v West Indies

Match tied (West Indies won the one-over eliminator)

1.1

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, played gently first up, on a length on the off stump, Gayle gets across and pushes that to mid-on

1.2

Bracewell to Gayle, FOUR, straying on the pads and Gayle's gentle again, but picks the gap nicely, clipped all along the group through square leg, this with a fine leg up, four more

1.3

Bracewell to Gayle, 1 run, held it back a little this time did Bracewell, short of a good length and that is turned wide of midwicket for a single

West Indies 14/0   CH Gayle 5* (3b 1x4)

2.1

Mills to Gayle, no run, short of a good length outside off, Gayle plays half-heartedly at that one and it goes through to the keeper

2.2

Mills to Gayle, SIX, pitched up and that's been dispatched, effortlessly, was in the slot and there was also some width and that was smashed over the bowler's head for a straight six

2.3

Mills to Gayle, 2 runs, shortish on middle and off, turned off the back foot wide of midwicket for a single

2.4

Mills to Gayle, no run, slower one on middle and off, bowled on a good length, defended gently into the leg side

2.5

Mills to Gayle, FOUR, mid-off is up, slower one again from Mills but poor length ultimately, lands in the slot outside off and Gayle just drives that uppishly, through the line, for a one bounce four

2.6

Mills to Gayle, FOUR, lovely timing, just a punch this time, Mills drags it back but Gayle sweetly punches that through cover and cover point, for a boundary

West Indies 30/1   CH Gayle 21* (9b 3x4 1x6)

4.2

Southee to Gayle, 1 run, beautifully timed by Gayle, just a firm push down the pitch, pitched up and he just pushes that through the line, past the bowler for a single

4.4

Southee to Gayle, 1 wide, drops that one short on middle and he ducks under that one, called a wide for height

4.4

Southee to Gayle, 1 run, long-on in place, pitched on a good length and it's cracked hard to Franklin in the deep for a single

West Indies 42/2   CH Gayle 23* (11b 3x4 1x6)

5.1

Oram to Gayle, SIX, what a horrible delivery to bowl for a freehit, a juicy full toss on middle and leg and it's been deservedly smashed over the deep square leg boundary, his 300th six in T20s

5.2

Oram to Gayle, 1 wide, bad over so far, down the leg side and it's been called a wide

5.2

Oram to Gayle, 1 run, slower one bowled full on middle and it's swung away towards deep square leg for a single this time

West Indies 53/2   CH Gayle 30* (13b 3x4 2x6)

6.2

Southee to Gayle, OUT, Gayle goes, Southee gets him with a jaffa, a huge wicket, held it back just a little, slightly short of a good length on the off and it appeared to nip away, gets a faint nick as he plays for it and McCullum makes no mistake

CH Gayle c †BB McCullum b Southee 30 (31m 14b 3x4 2x6) SR: 214.28

West Indies 61/3   CH Gayle 30 (14b 3x4 2x6)
