India in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v India

New Zealand won by 7 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

0.4

Southee to Sehwag, SIX, Shot! that's amazing, first ball in an international match in the tour for Sehwag, it's short and he pulls it over deep backward square leg for six, typical Sehwag

0.5

Southee to Sehwag, SIX, another six from Sehwag, it's a short boundary square on the side, it's a touch short again and Sehwag crashes it over midwicket, he picked that up from middle and leg

0.6

Southee to Sehwag, SIX, wow, what a start from Sehwag, yet another six, this time to square leg, hardly any effort behind that shot as he launched that off his pads

India 19/0   V Sehwag 18* (3b 3x6)

1.3

O'Brien to Sehwag, no run, not a six this time, short of a length, a bit of width, Sehwag thrashes it to the fielder at point

1.4

O'Brien to Sehwag, 1 run, tries to flay it over long-on this time, doesn't get hold of it, and the ball rolls towards mid-on for a single

India 21/0   V Sehwag 19* (5b 3x6)

2.1

Butler to Sehwag, no run, first ball is a touch overpitched outside off, Sehwag punches it to cover

2.2

Butler to Sehwag, SIX, massive massive six, Sehwag doesn't really care who the bowler is, it's overpitched, Sehwag doesn't bother with footwork, he launches it high over the long-off boundary, that's way back into the crowd

2.3

Butler to Sehwag, no run, goes for a big swipe over midwicket, doesn't connect with the ball this time

2.4

Butler to Sehwag, 1 run, superb ball from Butler, a yorker just outside off, even Sehwag in his murderous mood can't do much about that, he inside edges it towards short fine leg

India 32/1   V Sehwag 26* (9b 4x6)

3.1

O'Brien to Sehwag, OUT, Sehwag's gone, O'Brien's on a hat-trick now, big wicket for New Zealand, Sehwag eyes the short square boundary at midwicket again, misses the ball and it crashes into legstump, O'Brien is over the moon and why not

V Sehwag b O'Brien 26 (14m 10b 0x4 4x6) SR: 260.00

India 32/2   V Sehwag 26 (10b 4x6)
