New Zealand v Zimbabwe

New Zealand won by 90 runs

0.1

Meth to Nicol, 1 wide, starts with a wide well down the leg side which beats Nicol's walk down the wicket

0.1

Meth to Nicol, no run, first legal ball of the match is solidly defended down the pitch on off stump

0.2

Meth to Nicol, no run, swings away a touch and skews the drive out to cover

0.3

Meth to Nicol, no run, nicely times a firm push to a ball on middle stump, mid-on comes round to field and fires a throw at the non-striker's end where Guptill had backed up a touch too far but the throw misses, might have been in anyhow

0.4

Meth to Nicol, no run, again plays firmly down to mid-on, no running dramas on this occasion

0.5

Meth to Nicol, OUT, Zimbabwe strike in the first over! Full outside off and inviting the drive, Nicol eagerly chases it but is fooled by the late swing and gets a healthy edge which carries to the jubilant Zimbabwean skipper at first slip

RJ Nicol c Taylor b Meth 0 (3m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 1/1   RJ Nicol 0 (5b)
