22 March 2007 (50-over match)
  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal L Vincent c & b Davison 101 178 117 9 1 86.32
42.6 what a strange dismissal, a loopy offspinner from Davison dips as it arrives at Vincent who tries to work through midwicket - having started to think about the sweep - and got a leading edge which gently lobbed back to Davison 278/5
View dismissal SP Fleming* c Billcliff b Sandher 66 96 67 8 1 98.50
21.3 the breakthrough! Fleming tried to use his feet to get to the pitch and flicked the ball low towards short midwicket, nicely bowled by Sandher and well taken, low down, by Billcliff 142/1
View dismissal PG Fulton lbw b Sandher 47 50 47 4 1 100.00
35.2 Nelson strikes! Well, not specifically Nelson itself, but you know what we mean. That one angles across the righthander and would have gone on to hit leg-and-middle 222/2
View dismissal SB Styris c †Bagai b Samad 28 12 17 6 0 164.70
38.5 Bagai does very well to cling on to that one in the end. He lost it in the sun, despite some big Fly-type sunnies allegedly assisting him, as Styris shot that high and higher, straight up and Bagai had to run forward and, at the last minute, dive forward to - like removing a nice apple soufflé from the oven - cling on with the big gloves 253/3
View dismissal CD McMillan c Samad b Davison 10 4 6 1 0 166.66
40.4 great catch! McMillan opened his front leg to give himself room and launched it high towards deep midwicket, but he was hitting against the breeze and the ball held up in the air...Samad ran in from the fence and held a superbly judged catch, making sure the ball didn't come out as he slid on the turf 266/4
JDP Oram not out 35 36 27 0 3 129.62

  Canada innings (target: 364 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JM Davison* c & b Mason 52 44 31 9 1 167.74
9.4 got him! That's the blow. Mason's face is an absolute picture of delight as Davison's rout comes to an end. A short ball, Davison tried to target the leg side and didn't get the middle of the bat, Mason standing firm to take a solid catch 76/1
View dismissal GEF Barnett c †McCullum b Vettori 40 93 72 5 0 55.55
20.4 slider, quicker ball, spinning in and it went on with the arm. That was a fine edge cut through to McCullum, who clung on this time after dropping a difficult chance of him earlier, and that's the second wicket 110/2
View dismissal A Bagai b Vettori 37 95 64 3 0 57.81
34.6 nicely bowled, again very wide on the crease, varying his pace and spearing in towards the pads...Bagai comes down the track and virtually yorks himself, the ball takes back leg stump 188/3
View dismissal IS Billcliff b Styris 50 57 56 4 0 89.28
37.5 now he's gone, the ball after reaching fifty he goes for a swing and loses his leg stump...there was a much bigger score for the taking but perhaps his concentration just went a fraction and that's all it takes 201/4
View dismissal AM Samad run out (Vincent) 9 18 17 1 0 52.94
39.2 Styris to Dhaniram, forced off the back foot into the covers, and some more brilliant fielding by Lou Vincent brings him another direct-hit run out, at the bowler's end, with Samad trying to dive back but not able to make it...that was outstanding work for Vincent, who's had a fine day 207/6
View dismissal AA Mulla lbw b Vettori 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
38.6 gone this time, planting his front foot down the pitch he's struck in line with middle and off, Billy Doctrove raises the finger as that ball does all the right things 206/5
S Dhaniram retired hurt 17 21 19 1 1 89.47
44.5 from Oram, attempted-yorker-turned-low-full-toss clatters into his right wrist as that was picked up late by Dhaniram 226/6
View dismissal U Bhatti b Patel 10 35 28 1 0 35.71
47.4 horrible - a big heave looking to send that into Row Z, instead it hit middle-and-off and the batsman's on his way 245/7
AC Cummins not out 9 20 8 1 0 112.50
View dismissal KT Sandher b Patel 2 5 6 0 0 33.33
49.1 well bowled and Patel has to hold both hands up in appeal to confirm the wicket. Full delivery and Sandher swooshes at that one, misses, and the ball just clips the off stick on the way through to the keeper 249/8
View dismissal H Osinde b Patel 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 another bowled, that one clattering into the off stick, the No 11 driving with a straight bat and missed that one completely 249/9
