25 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Kallis to Ryder, 1 run, tight line, back of a length and angling from middle to off, Ryder stays back and guides to third man for one


Kallis to Taylor, no run, slants in from off and middle, Taylor looks to nurdle along to fine leg but it slides off the pad to the keeper


Kallis to Taylor, no run, no width outside off, but Taylor looks to power the cut away. He makes decent contact with it, but can't place it past point


Kallis to Taylor, no run, the Kallis bouncer is the very epitome of a heavy ball. 137 kph, thudded into the turf with that open-chested action, putting the whole body into it. Taylor ducks under safely


Kallis to Taylor, no run, another one on off, Taylor tries to steer away and finds point


Kallis to Taylor, 1 run, Taylor finally gets that hacked back foot chop away, past point for a single

New Zealand 77/2   JH Kallis 1-0-2-0

Kallis to Taylor, no run, back of a length and finishing on Taylor's pads, he taps it to midwicket


Kallis to Taylor, no run, aha, canny offcutter at 129 kph, Taylor doesn't pick it as it nips in and fends from the crease. Inside edge pops between bat and pad, close to leg stump


Kallis to Taylor, 1 run, a touch of width outside off, Taylor waits and dabs it late it down to third man for a single


Kallis to Ryder, 1 run, Ryder has 50. I am backing him for a 100 today. Another offcutter, finishes on middle stump and Ryder quietly pushes into the covers for a single.


Kallis to Taylor, 1 run, Kallis bouncer outside off, Taylor tries in vain to climb over it and pull it into the turf. He manages to get it away for a single into the leg side. 3000 ODI runs for Taylor. One-sixth of a Tendulkar.


Kallis to Ryder, 1 run, oho, Ryder almost undid my prophecy there, going for a compulsive pull to a well-directed bouncer on middle and off. Not quite short enough, and he gets a top edge that balloons alarmingly to the left of the keeper and dribbles away to short third man.

New Zealand 84/2   JH Kallis 2-0-6-0

Kallis to Ryder, no run, short of a length on off stump, Kallis keeps it tight and Ryder politely defends from the crease.


Kallis to Ryder, no run, a half a foot outside off, Ryder opens the face as he punches from the crease and finds cover


Kallis to Ryder, no run, smart and slow bouncer, Ryder didn't see the drop in pace and eventually just weaved away from the line


Kallis to Ryder, no run, another dot ball, Kallis is giving Ryder nothing to drive. He stays back and pushes straight to midwicket


Kallis to Ryder, no run, Kallis, canny as ever. Now he slips in the fullish offcutter, gently angling away and begging for the outside edge. Ryder is stuck in the crease as he forces it off the outside half to point.


Kallis to Ryder, 1 leg bye, maiden from Kallis. Ryder gets a leg bye as he tries to nudge off the pads

New Zealand 88/2   JH Kallis 3-1-6-0
