New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)
27 February 2009 - night match (20-over match)

O'Brien to Sehwag, OUT, Sehwag's fun ends! O'Brien delivers from wide of the crease and pitches it up, Sehwag goes for the bait but his bat turns at the point of contact and as a result he ends up splicing it to Vettori at mid-off, for more description wait for O'Brien's blog later today

V Sehwag c Vettori b O'Brien 24 (15m 11b 5x4 0x6) SR: 218.18

India 29/1   G Gambhir 4* (10b)   IE O'Brien 1.3-0-13-1

Butler to Raina, OUT, another Indian batsman gives away his wicket, Butler bangs it in short and Raina tries to pull it over mid-on, there was a lot of bat speed on that one but the ball hit the top half of the bat and spliced to Southee who jumps and takes it at mid-on, it was a lot like Alastair Cook's dismissal in Kingston

SK Raina c Southee b Butler 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 36/2   G Gambhir 10* (12b 1x6)   IG Butler 0.3-0-6-1

Butler to Gambhir, OUT, oh well another poor shot, Butler pitches it outside off and gets it to move away, Gambhir stays rooted to the crease and tries to dab it away to third man but succeeds in getting a thick edge to the keeper, no foot movement whatsoever, it's New Zealand's evening so far

G Gambhir c †BB McCullum b Butler 10 (29m 13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 76.92

India 47/3   Yuvraj Singh 11* (9b 2x4)   IG Butler 1.1-0-7-2

O'Brien to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Oram pulls it off just before the rope, O'Brien fires it outside off from wide of the crease and Yuvraj plays a front foot scoop over extra cover, Oram's there and he looks back to see it he's safe from the rope

Yuvraj Singh c Oram b O'Brien 50 (33m 34b 3x4 4x6) SR: 147.05

India 92/4   MS Dhoni 6* (14b)   IE O'Brien 3.4-0-29-2

Vettori to YK Pathan, OUT, another one bites the dust, Vettori lands it just outside off and cramps Yusuf for room, he tries to dab it away down to third man but gets a tame inside edge onto his stumps, wrong choice of shot

YK Pathan b Vettori 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 94/5   MS Dhoni 7* (16b)   DL Vettori 3.2-0-20-1

Southee to Jadeja, OUT, Jadeja tries to take him downtown again but the loft it mistimed, he doesn't get the desired elevation and Guptill has a fairly easy take at long-off

RA Jadeja c Guptill b Southee 19 (14m 16b 1x4 1x6) SR: 118.75

India 121/6   MS Dhoni 15* (21b 1x4)   TG Southee 2.5-0-28-1
