India v New Zealand

India won by an innings and 198 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

6.1

Sreesanth to Guptill, OUT, what a delivery from Sreesanth to make the breakthrough, gets his line right, just outside off, and pitches it back of a length , moving away from Guptill, who has to play at it, he nicks it to the keeper, and it isn't a no-ball either, so Guptill's got to go

MJ Guptill c †Dhoni b Sreesanth 6 (30m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

New Zealand 11/1   TG McIntosh 4* (23b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 3.1-2-4-1

8.4

Sreesanth to McIntosh, OUT, McIntosh is castled, he has a befuddled look after being bowled, seam is upright as Sreesanth fires the ball in, pitched off and middle, close to the off stump, enough movement to take the ball between McIntosh's bat and pad and onto off stump, Sreesanth gets his second, the openers are gone, that was a beauty from Sreesanth

TG McIntosh b Sreesanth 4 (44m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

New Zealand 16/2   LRPL Taylor 5* (6b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 4.4-2-9-2

14.5

Sharma to Taylor, OUT, it seems to have worked, Taylor is gone lbw, Taylor is looking unhappy, not sure why, that looked plumb, the ball jags in after pitching outside off, Taylor is undone by the movement, hit just below the knee roll as he looks to defend, it didn't take long for the umpire to raise his finger

LRPL Taylor lbw b Sharma 20 (48m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

New Zealand 42/3   JD Ryder 9* (20b 2x4)   I Sharma 6.5-1-17-1

15.4

Ojha to Williamson, OUT, a flighted and full delivery from Ojha, Williamson checks his drive, India are celebrating after Williamson the ball spooned towards short cover, Sehwag is pumping his fists, umpire is not sure whether that is a bump ball, third umpire is called for, batsman says he's not sure, replays show the ball was hit after bouncing and went straight to Sehwag, New Zealand are four down and in deep trouble

KS Williamson c Sehwag b Ojha 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 43/4   JD Ryder 9* (22b 2x4)   PP Ojha 2.4-0-11-1

16.6

Sharma to Vettori, OUT, bowled 'im! not a great shot from Vettori, he is distraught after that, it was short and outside off, an innocuous delivery, Vettori went for the pull and contrived to get an under-edge, the ball rattles into middle stump, India can't believe this gift of a wicket

DL Vettori b Sharma 3 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 51/5   JD Ryder 13* (25b 2x4)   I Sharma 8-1-23-2

27.6

Ojha to Hopkins, OUT, lovely from Ojha, he ends Hopkins' resistance, loops it up, turns away from the batsman after pitching on a length, Hopkins looks to defend off the front foot, doesn't bargain for the spin, and it takes the outside edge to second slip, Raina is dleighted, as is Ojha

GJ Hopkins c Raina b Ojha 7 (40m 36b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.44

New Zealand 82/6   JD Ryder 36* (55b 4x4)   PP Ojha 9-1-31-2

47.3

Harbhajan Singh to Ryder, OUT, and there's the breakthrough India were looking for, Ryder is gone, Harbhajan has struck, lovely catch from Raina, he has already taken a smart low catch at second slip, this time he scoops another low catch at extra cover after Ryder rocked back and thumped a ball to him, India celebrate, Ryder walks off, he waits at the edge of the boundary to see whether he'll get a reprieve from the third umpire who was asked to check whether Raina collected that one cleanly. The third umpire is satisfied and Ryder has to go. Superb innings from him, much of it played in agony.

JD Ryder c Raina b Harbhajan Singh 59 (183m 113b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.21

New Zealand 124/7   BB McCullum 18* (60b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 10.3-0-26-1

59.2

Sharma to McCullum, OUT, he doesn't escape this time, in the channel outside off, similar length to the previous one, McCullum again looks to force the ball off the back foot, he gets an edge again, it's a thin one this time, Dhoni gobbles up the chance, and India have struck early on Sunday

BB McCullum c †Dhoni b Sharma 40 (134m 84b 4x4 0x6) SR: 47.61

New Zealand 159/8   TG Southee 12* (47b 1x4)   I Sharma 14.2-2-37-3

63.3

Sharma to McKay, OUT, that's the end of McKay, a shortish ball from Ishant, no feet movement from McKay, he looks for the drives, the ball beats the bat and crashes into middle and off stump, clearing the stage for Chris Martin

AJ McKay b Sharma 5 (19m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

New Zealand 165/9   TG Southee 13* (56b 1x4)   I Sharma 16.3-3-41-4

66.3

Ojha to Southee, OUT, and looks to repeat the stroke, this time he gets too much elevation, and not enough distance, Sehwag waits an eternity for the ball to come down at mid-on, pouches that one and that's the end of Southee and New Zealand.

TG Southee c Sehwag b Ojha 38 (80m 68b 2x4 3x6) SR: 55.88

New Zealand 193/10   CS Martin 2* (6b)   PP Ojha 19.3-2-57-3
