Patel to Mills, SIX, what's happening here, some superb hitting combined with some dreadful bowling, slower ball bowled full on the off stump and Mills slogs it way over the deep-midwicket boundary, if only New Zealand had not lost a flurry of wickets in the middle overs

44.2

Patel to Mills, (no ball) 1 run, caught off a no ball, waist high full toss on middle, tries to pull it away over deep square, doesn't connect it well enough, goes really high and Yusuf takes a simple catch in the deep. However, the umpires have a consultation and call it a no-ball for height, fair decision

44.3

Patel to Mills, (no ball) 1 run, caught off a no ball again, another one, a beamer, and he's taken off, the attack, caught by Dhoni off an attempted pull but he's bowled two waist high no balls in one over, his painful spell has come to an end

44.4

Pathan to Mills, no run, short of a good length on middle and off, tries to chip that over extra cover, gets an inside edge onto his pads

44.5

Pathan to Mills, no run, done a decent job so far, short of a length outside leg stump, struck on the pads as he tries to sweep it fine

44.6

Pathan to Mills, OUT, gone! The Indians are relieved, fullish delivery outside leg stump and he paddles it straight to Zaheer at short fine who takes a sharp, well judged catch
