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

The New Zealand openers have made their way out. Nicol and Guptill, and it's Rampaul to bowl. Has a widish slip

0.1

Rampaul to Nicol, 1 run, short of a good length outside off, guides that one down to third man for a single

0.2

Rampaul to Guptill, no run, good length, in the channel outside off stump and it's left alone to the keeper

0.3

Rampaul to Guptill, no run, short outside off, was aiming at cover but ended up mistiming it to the bowler instead

0.4

Rampaul to Guptill, 1 run, there is a long-on in place, drives that one down to the fielder there for a single

0.5

Rampaul to Nicol, 1 run, shortish on the off, pushes that past point into the deep for a single

0.6

Rampaul to Guptill, 1 run, nicely played but there is protection in the deep, pitched up on middle and he's picked it wide of long-on, on the bounce, the fielder collects it and a single is all they'll manage

End of over 1 (4 runs) New Zealand 4/0 (136 runs required from 19 overs, RR: 4.00, RRR: 7.15)
MJ Guptill    2* (4b)      R Rampaul    1-0-4-0

Priyank: "Such a lackluster, dismal, horrible performance from Windies. Been their die hard fan since 1996, have supported them over India, have had countless heart attacks on their losing and still I see no sign of them becoming a consistent team with such talented but not so fruitful players. Every match I feel,even if they are comfortably placed to win, that they can still lose, convincingly."

2.1

Rampaul to Nicol, no run, shortish on the off, gets on the back foot and jabs it to midwicket

2.2

Rampaul to Nicol, OUT, Rampaul strikes early! Nicol had moved well across as he tried to clip that straightish delivery over short fine, missed and I reckon he was trapped in front of middle and leg

2.5

Rampaul to BB McCullum, 1 run, shortish on the off, drops it in front of point and steals a quick single

MJ Guptill    5* (10b)      R Rampaul    2-0-9-1
BB McCullum    5* (3b 1x4)      S Badree    1-0-4-0

Dera: "@Priyank: A WI supporter since 1996, I've been a die hard fan of NZ since 1992, when Martin Crowe impressed me with his batting and captaincy, since then only Stephen Fleming has won me the 2000 ICC Champions Trophy..."

4.1

Rampaul to Guptill, no run, pitched up on middle and it's driven straight back to the bowler

4.3

Rampaul to Guptill, FOUR, connects well this time, short of a length and Guptill latches onto it, gets forward and pulls that smartly over midwicket

4.4

5.5

Narine to BB McCullum, 2 runs, tossed up on middle, drives that through midwicket into the deep, by the time Pollard gets around to it, they have taken two

I get this from Rajeshstats, our stats man: "If NZ win in 19.4 overs or quicker, their NRR will sneak past England's... but if Eng lose by a run or 2 their NRR might again go past NZ's"

5.6

Narine to BB McCullum, 1 run, shortish on middle, gets on the back foot to turn it into the leg side for a single

Professor: "his is a good chance for both teams to prove a point: NZ that they can win without McCullum getting all the runs, and WI that they can win without Gayle getting all the runs. Of course, it means nothing if they don't get through to the semis."

NL McCullum c Charles b Narine 5 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Bracewell is the new man but it's Taylor who will face.

18.4

Narine to Taylor, no run, ooh, a dot ball, the carrom ball, got across and dropped it into the leg side, thought of the single but it just wasn't there

DAJ Bracewell    0* (0b)      R Rampaul    4-0-23-1

14 off the final over, is it too much? Are we going to have another Super Over? The loser of this match goes out of the competition. A conference of sorts out in the middle. Sammy, Samuels, Russell, Gayle are having a talk. Sammy has to decide between Samuels and Russell. He have the ball to Russell initially, but then decided it was Marlon who was going to bowl it. That quicker ball is something New Zealand will have to watch out for. Short fine in place

19.3

Samuels to Taylor, 2 runs, low full toss and it's chipped towards Pollard at long-on for two more, Taylor makes it back in time

9 off 3 needed

19.4

Samuels to Taylor, SIX, plays the scoop and it goes all the way, it's not his favourite shot but he pulls it off superbly, full toss on the pads, bowled at 127kmph and he used the pace to scoop it over the fine-leg boundary for six, what a shot

Taylor's brought it down to 3 off 2. Gayle, Sammy and Marlon have a discussion again. Third man is now inside the circle

Marlon pulls out of his run-up, saw Taylor make an initial movement

Samuels to Taylor, 1 run, ooh fired it quick on middle, got an inside edge onto the pads, just the single, 2 in 1 now

Super Over? We need to see. 2 in 1, and it's Bracewell on strike. The fielders have moved in a little to prevent the two.

19.6

Samuels to Bracewell, 1 run, OUT, full toss and it's flicked towards deep square leg, it's Super Over folks, they pick a single and Bracewell is run out on the second run, a direct hit from the deep

DAJ Bracewell run out 1 (13m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Dwayne Smith was the man, the substitute fielder in for Rampaul. We have a Super Over now, a tie is what we have for now. It had to come down to this. Otis Gibson's having a talk with Pollard and Gayle. New Zealand to bat now.
