Zimbabwe in New Zealand ODI Series - 1st ODI

New Zealand v Zimbabwe

New Zealand won by 90 runs

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   MJ Guptill 0* (0b)   KO Meth 0.5-0-1-1

1.2

Jarvis to BB McCullum, OUT, well well well! Zimbabwe strike again, McCullum left one that pitched outside off but it nipped back sharply, given out immediately, he reviews it but it is clipping the top of the stumps, good decision and Baz is on his way

BB McCullum lbw b Jarvis 3 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 4/2   MJ Guptill 0* (0b)   KM Jarvis 0.2-0-0-1

16.3

SW Masakadza to Williamson, OUT, and against the run of play Zimbabwe strike! The drinks break works a treat for the visitors, Williamson walked down and across, tried to work to leg, got a leading edge and Shinig dived forward nicely as it was dying on him to snaffle it

KS Williamson c & b SW Masakadza 35 (67m 53b 4x4 0x6) SR: 66.03

New Zealand 92/3   MJ Guptill 47* (38b 7x4)   SW Masakadza 3.3-0-17-1

24.4

Chigumbura to Guptill, OUT, cleaned him out! Chigumbura fired this in with a bit more shoulder behind it, it pitched on off and moved back in past the attempted drive while also keeping a bit low, clatters into the stumps and that's the big wicket

MJ Guptill b Chigumbura 70 (105m 66b 9x4 0x6) SR: 106.06

New Zealand 130/4   TWM Latham 14* (21b 2x4)   E Chigumbura 2.4-0-12-1

28.6

Chigumbura to Latham, OUT, Elton gets his second wicket with a full ball outside off, lures Latham into the drive and he gets a healthy edge which carries low to Taibu's left

TWM Latham c †Taibu b Chigumbura 24 (43m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

New Zealand 147/5   DG Brownlie 6* (14b)   E Chigumbura 5-0-16-2

32.6

Chigumbura to NL McCullum, 1 run, OUT, short outside off and rises on him a bit, gets on top of the bounce and plays it past point

DG Brownlie run out 19 (30m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.85

New Zealand 166/5   NL McCullum 6* (10b 1x4)   E Chigumbura 7-0-23-2

33.1

H Masakadza to NL McCullum, OUT, wicket with the first ball of the spell but that was all the fielder's doing! Dabbed to Chakabva at backward point, who rushes in and flings an underarm throw at the keeper's end and hits direct with Brownlie's valiant dive in vain

DG Brownlie run out 19 (30m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.85

New Zealand 166/6   NL McCullum 6* (10b 1x4)   H Masakadza 0.1-0-0-0

42.4

SW Masakadza to Ellis, OUT, big wicket for Zimbabwe just as this pair were looking to make the jump from accumulation to acceleration, slower ball on off beat the attempted push and rattled the bails

AM Ellis b SW Masakadza 33 (40m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

New Zealand 223/7   NL McCullum 28* (38b 2x4)   SW Masakadza 6.4-0-37-2

44.3

SW Masakadza to NL McCullum, OUT, another big hooey at a full ball on the stumps and he's not so lucky this time, the ball crashes into the base of the stumps and New Zealand are in danger of being bowled out with overs to spare

NL McCullum b SW Masakadza 30 (65m 42b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

New Zealand 230/8   DAJ Bracewell 3* (7b)   SW Masakadza 7.3-0-38-3

Jarvis to Mills, OUT, clean bowled, backs away and tries to smash it through the off side and has his stumps rearranged

KD Mills b Jarvis 7 (12m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

New Zealand 241/9   DAJ Bracewell 6* (13b)   KM Jarvis 8.3-1-38-2

48.3

SW Masakadza to Southee, OUT, goes for a big heave, misses, thuds into the pad on middle and given immediately, New Zealand bowled out

TG Southee lbw b SW Masakadza 3 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

New Zealand 248/10   DAJ Bracewell 8* (15b)   SW Masakadza 9.3-0-47-4
