  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Khawaja b Marsh 31 64 45 4 0 68.88
15.4 caught at deep cover! Guptill came out of his crease and moved towards leg to smash a good length ball from outside off down the ground, the bat turned in his hand as he made contact and he ended up slicing the ball towards the cover boundary, where Khawaja settled under the catch. He judged that well, because the ball seemed to be swirling and it wasn't straightforward 88/2
View dismissal BB McCullum* b Boland 28 18 12 2 3 233.33
4.2 bowled him! What a lift for Boland! McCullum charged him again but this time the length was not full and McCullum's swing connected with nothing, Boland hit the top of off stump. The fans at the Cake Tin rise to give McCullum a cheer as he walks off 35/1
View dismissal KS Williamson c Smith b Zampa 60 100 74 5 1 81.08
29.2 KW can't hit the repeat button, Zampa celebrates his maiden ODI wicket. Nicely lobbed up outside off, KW drives in the air again, this time he picks out Smith at extra-cover. Big, big wicket. KW spins his head away in disappointment 158/4
View dismissal HM Nicholls c †Wade b Marsh 4 9 5 0 0 80.00
17.3 that's a loose ball and a loose shot and a loose dismissal, Marsh is thrilled with his second wicket. He bowled a short and wide ball outside off from around the wicket, with a cross seam so it gripped the pitch a bit. It might have been called wide had Nichollls let it go but he chased it with a half-hearted waft at edged through to Wade. If you're going to slash, slash hard ... 95/3
View dismissal GD Elliott c Maxwell b Zampa 32 53 47 2 1 68.08
31.2 Elliott does a KW. Zampa gives this loads of air, tempts Elliott into an airy stroke. The ball dips, and the batsman drives it in the air.... into the lap of Maxi who takes it calmly despite a little juggle. Two in two for the debutant 164/5
View dismissal CJ Anderson c †Wade b Hazlewood 16 46 28 0 1 57.14
40.2 he comes back and takes down Anderson. Full and swerves away with the angle outside off. Anderson does not want to hold back. He throws his bat at it. He can only settle with a thin tickle behind to Wade. NZ are falling away 205/7
View dismissal L Ronchi c Marsh b Boland 19 20 19 0 1 100.00
36.3 another soft dismissal, another failure for Ronchi. Back of a length, Ronchi may have misjudged the pace on this. The back-of-a-length ball stopped on him as he shaped to flick. He can only chip it to Mitch Marsh at mid-on; chest-high catch 193/6
MJ Santner not out 45 61 39 3 1 115.38
View dismissal AF Milne c Smith b Hazlewood 36 32 27 2 1 133.33
47.4 well, that was simple! Fierecly struck but straight down the throat of the Australian captain. End of a sparky cameo from Milne. He dances out to a length ball and drills it to Smith at cover 266/8
View dismissal MJ Henry b Hazlewood 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
47.6 knocked him over. The middle stump is flattened. Back of a length, straight on middle, Henry clears his front leg. Goes for a wild, dirty slog, and misses. Hazlewood pounds the middle stump 266/9

View dismissal UT Khawaja c & b Santner 50 59 49 7 0 102.04
16.2 fifty and out! Chipped back to the bowler off a leading edge. Drifting into the pads again, Khawaja targets the leg side with a gentle little flick. He can only spoon a return catch to Santner who breaks the rousing opening partnership 122/1
View dismissal DA Warner lbw b Santner 98 120 79 8 4 124.05
30.2 big appeal for lbw, not given by ump Billy. Did the pitch outside leg? Baz, Ronchi, and Santner have a chat. Santner coaxes his captain to review it. Arrowed in from round the wicket, strikes the back pad. No inside edge involved. Pitched in line, the tracker shows that it would smash the middle of middle stump. No century for Warner. Game-changing incision from Santner? 191/5
View dismissal SPD Smith* c †Ronchi b Henry 2 12 12 0 0 16.66
19.3 this wasn't crunched. This was just edged. Cracker of a stop followed by a cracker of a catch. Full and outside off, Smith feels for the ball and outside-edges it towards first slip. But Ronchi dives full-stretch to his right and snaps up the one-handed catch. Ronchi may have lost it with the bat, but he still has it with the gloves 133/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey b Henry 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 double-blow from Henry! He lets out a massive roar. Bailey is gone for a golden duck. He went unsold in the IPL auction as well. This is a gem. Back of a length, snakes back in a long way off the seam. Rips through the gate and hits the top of off 133/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell b Boult 6 13 10 1 0 60.00
22.3 Boult has Maxi chopping on. Boult flashes a smile. Fractionally short, not much room either, Maxi shapes to pull. He gets a thick inside edge that rebounds off pad and hits the furniture 144/4
MR Marsh not out 69 110 72 9 1 95.83
View dismissal MS Wade c Milne b Santner 2 11 9 0 0 22.22
32.3 It soars over for a six Milne pulls off a stunning one-handed catch at the edge of the midwicket boundary (allow me to pick up my jaw from the floor). Milne does a Vettori.Wade can't believe this. He drops to his knees. Pushed through short on middle, Wade skips back and nails a pull. It looks destined to go for a six. But Milne takes flight, times his jump to perfection, and comes out with the ball in his left hand. It took some time for the crowd and Milne himself to realise that he had plucked it! 197/6
