View dismissal V Sehwag c Taylor b Vettori 77 79 56 11 1 137.50
18.2 stunning catch! Well held, Taylor! Sehwag skips down and absolutely smacks the ball hard and flat but Taylor dives to his left, superbly balanced, and plucks off a two-handed blinder at extra cover, you are not going to see much better than that in terms of reflex and composure 121/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †McCullum b Butler 20 43 23 2 0 86.95
9.4 edged and taken! A nothing shot from Tendulkar, looking to steer that away behind square on the off side but the length ball sits up a touch more than anticipated and he feathers a regulation edge through to McCullum, and thats immediate success for Butler on ODI comeback 69/1
MS Dhoni*† not out 84 120 89 6 0 94.38
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh run out (Vettori/Guptill) 2 17 13 0 0 15.38
22.4 Vettori to Dhoni, the hesitation does him in! Dhoni skips down and collects on the full, clipping past midwicket, there is hesitation on the second run and Yuvraj cannot make it back, beaten by a terrific flat throw on the bounce from Guptill to Vettori 131/3
View dismissal SK Raina c O'Brien b Elliott 66 49 39 5 4 169.23
34.6 he's gone now, but what a contribution! Raina clears the front leg and gets underneath the ball, slogging it up into the evening sky and O'Brien settles underneath it on the off side 241/4

View dismissal JD Ryder c Sehwag b Kumar 11 31 25 1 0 44.00
7.4 poor shot, just throwing the bat at a hint of width and scooping it up miles into the air, Sehwag calls for it and pouches the skier with ease on the off side, India are all over New Zealand 23/2
View dismissal BB McCullum c Harbhajan Singh b Kumar 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
1.5 gone! Praveen strikes in his first over, McCullum gets underneath the ball as it slides down the stumps, top-edging a poor attempt at a pull, its up into the evening sky a long time and settles in Harbhajan's palms down at deep fine leg, a massive wicket that 0/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 64 90 70 5 0 91.42
23.3 tossed up on middle, goes for a slog sweep in an attempt to clear the ropes, gets the top-edge and Gambhir, running in from deep midwicket, takes a well-judged catch after a juggling it a couple of times 132/6
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Tendulkar b Pathan 31 31 24 3 0 129.16
15.5 gone! Tossed up on middle and leg, gets down on one knee and tries to sweep it away behind square, gets the top edge and the ball lobs up to Tendulkar at short fine where it pouches it comfortably. India are chipping away here, and the asking rate has climbed to almost 9 81/3
View dismissal GD Elliott run out (†Dhoni/Sehwag) 11 20 11 0 0 100.00
20.5 from Yuvraj Singh, short of a length outside off, pushed off the back foot to deep cover, Raina rockets in an accurate throw at the striker's end, Dhoni collects it on the half-volley and takes off the bails to find Elliot just short of his ground while coming back for the second 111/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
20.6 gone first ball!! A bizzare dismissal really, tossed up on middle, tries to sweep it square, gets the top edge that lobs up to Dhoni, who the flicks the ball onto the bails to find Oram short of his crease. There was plenty of bat involved in that one, so he's given out caught, no doubts there 111/5
View dismissal NT Broom st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 2 14 7 0 0 28.57
23.4 on a hat-trick now! Failed to pick the doosra, pitched on a good length outside off, Broom came down the track and played inside the line, expecting it to spin into him, he missed and Dhoni made no mistake 132/7
View dismissal IG Butler c Patel b Khan 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
24.1 disaster for the home team! Banged in short on middle, he tries to hook that behind square, gets the top-edge and Munaf at fine leg dives forward to complete an excellent catch, it was dying on him but he got under it nicely 132/9
View dismissal KD Mills c Sehwag b Harbhajan Singh 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
23.6 A dream over for Harbhajan! Thrown up on the off stump, lands on a good length, he pushes at it off the front foot, gets a thick edge and Sehwag at slip stretches well to his right to snap a sharp chance, all but over for New Zealand here, three in four balls 132/8
