ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 30th match, Group A

Canada v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 97 runs

7.3

Baidwan to BB McCullum, SIX, Blast! McCullum rushes down the track, moves outside leg in the process and whacks this length delivery over long-off

New Zealand 41/0   BB McCullum 27* (26b 4x4 1x6)   HS Baidwan 0.3-0-6-0

22.4

Balaji Rao to BB McCullum, SIX, Baz has tonked Rao out of the ground with a typically cavalier inside out off drive with the spin. He runs out of the crease, gets inside the line and unleashes those tattooed fore-arms through the line. Drilled out of the ground.

New Zealand 125/1   BB McCullum 76* (68b 11x4 2x6)   WD Balaji Rao 3.4-0-16-0

38.1

Baidwan to Taylor, SIX, Whack! It was the bouncer around off stump and Taylor pulls it to deep midwicket where Davison ran in too much, misjudged it and the ball sailed over him. Had he stayed near the ropes, he could have got it

New Zealand 198/3   LRPL Taylor 35* (32b 3x4 1x6)   HS Baidwan 7.1-0-40-2

38.2

Baidwan to Taylor, SIX, Another short ball. Blink. Pull. The ball is thrown back from the wide midwicket boundary

New Zealand 204/3   LRPL Taylor 41* (33b 3x4 2x6)   HS Baidwan 7.2-0-46-2

38.4

Baidwan to Taylor, SIX, The six-orgy (read it again, no typos!) begins. It was a poor short ball and Taylor thrashes it over square-leg boundary

New Zealand 210/3   LRPL Taylor 47* (35b 3x4 3x6)   HS Baidwan 7.4-0-52-2

38.5

Baidwan to Taylor, SIX, Drama! Taylor fetches a slower one and heaves it high towards long-on. Cheema back-pedaled and as he caught the ball, his back foot touched the boundary line. He threw it back in the field of play but the damage was done.

New Zealand 216/3   LRPL Taylor 53* (36b 3x4 4x6)   HS Baidwan 7.5-0-58-2

39.6

Rizwan Cheema to Taylor, SIX, Low full toss on the leg stump line and Taylor cues up and swings it over backward square-leg boundary

New Zealand 236/3   LRPL Taylor 66* (41b 4x4 5x6)   Rizwan Cheema 4-0-36-0

45.1

Hansra to Styris, SIX, Styris goes downtown. He went down his knee, cleared his front foot and swung this full delivery over long-on

New Zealand 280/5   SB Styris 13* (10b 1x6)   AS Hansra 1.1-0-10-0

45.5

Hansra to Styris, SIX, Good bye! Styris unleashes hell on a bent knee. This one is a slog sweep and it flies over midwicket boundary

New Zealand 290/5   SB Styris 20* (12b 2x6)   AS Hansra 1.5-0-20-0

49.2

Rizwan Cheema to Franklin, SIX, Massive! 10th six of the game. Highest in this WC. Franklin clobbers a full pitched delivery into the stands beyond long-on

New Zealand 334/6   JEC Franklin 9* (3b 1x6)   Rizwan Cheema 4.2-0-43-0

49.3

Rizwan Cheema to Franklin, SIX, Huge! Another gentle full delivery, angling in and Franklin lifts this over wide midwicket boundary

New Zealand 340/6   JEC Franklin 15* (4b 2x6)   Rizwan Cheema 4.3-0-49-0

49.5

Rizwan Cheema to Franklin, SIX, This is humongous! Monster hit. In the slot, a length delivery and Franklin has absolutely tonked it over long-on.

New Zealand 350/6   JEC Franklin 25* (6b 1x4 3x6)   Rizwan Cheema 4.5-0-59-0
