  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Khan to McCullum, OUT, Zaheer Khan strikes, and roars, caught plumb in front is McCullum, good length again, pitching middle, McCullum pushes outside the line for the angle across him, the ball strikes him in front of off and middle, the umpire nods his head immediately

BB McCullum lbw b Khan 0 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 0/1   MJ Guptill 0* (6b)   Z Khan 0.5-0-0-1

Ojha to Williamson, OUT, that has got to be close, and umpire Davis upholds the appeal, spin striking after NZ had got through the first hour, tossed up ball sliding in with the angle, KW pushing well outside the line for the straightening one, caught in front, did not seem to be too much doubt with the line, but he was well forward, and was struck on the back thigh pad as he pressed forward, bounce could have been a factor, in hindsight

KS Williamson lbw b Ojha 17 (74m 44b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.63

New Zealand 63/2   MJ Guptill 46* (60b 7x4)   PP Ojha 5.1-1-15-1

Ojha to Guptill, OUT, Ojha has struck , this man is extremely underrated I tell you, tosses it up again, NZ had to be careful which balls to attack if they were going to be aggressive, Guptill goes after this full one, and ends up mishitting it straight to midwicket, came off the inner part of the bat, probably did not turn

MJ Guptill c Gambhir b Ojha 53 (102m 79b 8x4 0x6) SR: 67.08

New Zealand 89/3   LRPL Taylor 16* (13b 1x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 7.3-2-17-2

Ashwin to Flynn, OUT, and he's fallen for the third time this series to the sweep, and to Ashwin, tossed up offbreak. Flynn wants to sweep, misses, the ball straightens on middle and off, and strikes him on the thigh pad, looked like hitting off, credit to Ashwin for flighting the ball

DR Flynn lbw b Ashwin 33 (74m 53b 6x4 0x6) SR: 62.26

New Zealand 196/4   LRPL Taylor 87* (73b 14x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 8.2-1-40-1

Ojha to Franklin, OUT, oh dear me, what has Franklin done? he has hit a full toss to midwicket, tossed up delivery, it dipped on leg stump, Franklin leaned to put it away but ended up working it to midwicket's left, where Raina dived and pulled off a sharp catch

JEC Franklin c Raina b Ojha 8 (36m 35b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.85

New Zealand 215/5   LRPL Taylor 95* (94b 15x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 13.4-4-49-3

Ojha to Taylor, OUT, Ojha has got Taylor, after a long imploring appeal, umpire Gould gives it, quite plumb as replays show, went for the sweep to a tossed up fullish one, missed, and was hit in front of middle

LRPL Taylor lbw b Ojha 113 (177m 127b 16x4 2x6) SR: 88.97

New Zealand 246/6   CFK van Wyk 12* (36b 1x4)   PP Ojha 19.1-8-67-4

Khan to van Wyk, OUT, Raina takes a sharp diving catch at second slip, and Zaheer roars, van Wyk tried another of those dabs that have worked so well for him, but this time he ended up guiding the back of a length ball close to Raina, who went down to his right to snap up the low take, that delivery came in slightly off the pitch, probably why he ended up guiding it closer to Raina

CFK van Wyk c Raina b Khan 71 (133m 100b 9x4 0x6) SR: 71.00

New Zealand 345/7   DAJ Bracewell 39* (73b 5x4)   Z Khan 20-2-77-2

Khan to Southee, OUT, oh dear, how unfortunate is that, Bracewell has been run out backing up, the sadder part for him is that Zaheer was not even trying to do that, he was just trying to field a forcing push from Southee, but the ball burst through his fingers and crashed into the stumps, catching Bracewell well short

DAJ Bracewell run out 43 (101m 79b 6x4 0x6) SR: 54.43

New Zealand 353/8   TG Southee 4* (6b 1x4)   Z Khan 21-2-81-2

Yadav to Patel, OUT, another one, Patel does not last too long, he gets another shortish delivery from Umesh, and picks out third man right on the rope with a steer

JS Patel c Gambhir b Yadav 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 353/9   TG Southee 4* (6b 1x4)   UT Yadav 15.2-1-80-1

Ojha to Southee, OUT, that is plumb, Ojha gets one to straighten appreciably on the stumps, and picks up his fifth wicket, tossed up, good length, pitches middle and leg, and changes direction alarmingly to strike the back pad flap in front of middle and off even as Southee was pressing forward

TG Southee lbw b Ojha 14 (20m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 127.27

New Zealand 365/10   TA Boult 2* (6b)   PP Ojha 28.1-10-99-5
