New Zealand v India

New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

0.1

Southee to Gambhir, 1 wide, messes it up completely by spraying it really wide of the off stump, too wide for him to chase

0.1

Southee to Gambhir, no run, pitches it up outside and Gambhir nearly spoons it on the full to short cover

0.2

Southee to Gambhir, no run, driven firmly on the front foot and Nathan McCullum is absolutely brilliant at backward point

0.3

Southee to Gambhir, no run, Gambhir steps down the track and goes for broke but Southee pitches it shorter and the shot only meets thin air

0.4

Southee to Gambhir, no run, fires it full on the off stump and a booming straight drive finds mid-off

0.5

Southee to Gambhir, no run, pace and bounce and excellent carry, clearly the pace was a bit too much for Gambhir as he tried to angle it away to the off side, the outside edge wasn't too far

0.6

Southee to Gambhir, 1 run, taps it in front of the crease and Sehwag hurries him to go for the single, nice end to the over after the wide ball at the start

India 2/0   G Gambhir 1* (6b)

1.1

O'Brien to Gambhir, 1 run, comes round the wicket, he goes for a powerful drive and gets a thick inside edge onto the pads

2.2

Southee to Gambhir, 1 run, tip and run, good thinking by Gambhir as he sets off for a quick single to the off side

India 29/0   G Gambhir 4* (10b)

4.1

Butler to Gambhir, SIX, Gambhir greets Butler with an exquisite pull, bangs it in short on the body and he swivels and gets enough elevation to clear square leg

India 36/1   G Gambhir 10* (12b 1x6)

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   G Gambhir 10 (13b 1x6)
