West Indies tour of New Zealand, 2008/09 / Wicket commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

5.2

Powell to How, OUT, woefully loose drive, full but not quite to the pitch of it, hit on the up and Chanderpaul holds a straightforward low catch at point

JM How c Chanderpaul b Powell 10 (21m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 10/1   TG McIntosh 0* (22b)   DBL Powell 2.2-0-9-1

34.2

Gayle to McIntosh, OUT, finally the breakthrough! comes round the wicket, McIntosh decides to go over the top but it's a half-hearted loft, Baker pedals backwards from mid-on and tumbles as he takes the catch, a debutant gets another debutant

TG McIntosh c Baker b Gayle 34 (139m 110b 5x4 0x6) SR: 30.90

New Zealand 97/2   DR Flynn 51* (86b 6x4)   CH Gayle 4.2-0-6-1

42.5

Gayle to Taylor, OUT, not the ball to sweep, it lands outside off and doesn't spin, Taylor goes for the slog sweep and fails to clear the fielder at fine leg. How many times have we seen Taylor falling that way? An entertaining stay, though

LRPL Taylor c Marshall b Gayle 15 (37m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

New Zealand 128/3   DR Flynn 63* (115b 8x4)   CH Gayle 5.5-0-9-2

64.6

Gayle to Flynn, OUT, finally we have a referral now as Gayle asks for one that struck Flynn on the pads. The ball hits him on line with the stumps and would have crashed onto the middle stump. Koertzen, conveys this to the umpire Saheba and Flynn has to go, falling short of his maiden hundred by five runs. Good knock by Flynn

DR Flynn lbw b Gayle 95 (232m 188b 12x4 0x6) SR: 50.53

New Zealand 189/4   JD Ryder 26* (61b 3x4)   CH Gayle 17-1-32-3

88.4

Taylor to McCullum, OUT, Got him, they needed that. A hint of away swing and that has taken the outside edge as McCullum followed the ball presenting a simple catch for Ramdin behind the stumps.

BB McCullum c †Ramdin b Taylor 25 (120m 66b 3x4 0x6) SR: 37.87

New Zealand 278/5   JD Ryder 79* (137b 11x4)   JE Taylor 18.4-6-49-1

93.2

Edwards to Franklin, OUT, short, Franklin hops on to the back foot trying to turn it round the corner and he has stood on his stumps!

JEC Franklin hit wicket b Edwards 7 (25m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

New Zealand 289/6   JD Ryder 82* (146b 11x4)   FH Edwards 16.2-4-68-1

99.3

Powell to Ryder, OUT, just outside off and Ryder has pulled that straight to Chanderpaul at square leg. He's out 11 short of his hundred and the bowling change has worked a treat.

JD Ryder c Chanderpaul b Powell 89 (255m 157b 12x4 0x6) SR: 56.68

New Zealand 310/7   DL Vettori 14* (26b 1x4)   DBL Powell 18.3-5-49-2

103.3

Powell to Vettori, OUT, short and wide and cut in the air to Marshall at deep point who takes an easy catch. Vettori didn't know the fielder was there, a deliberate ploy that he failed to spot.

DL Vettori c Marshall b Powell 30 (45m 43b 4x4 0x6) SR: 69.76

New Zealand 327/8   KD Mills 1* (7b)   DBL Powell 20.3-6-57-3

111.4

Edwards to Mills, OUT, referral dead straight again. The players go up for an appeal but Mark Benson says not out thinking it was bat first. The replays suggest otherwise and Rudi Koertzen has given another one.

KD Mills lbw b Edwards 12 (58m 30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

New Zealand 347/9   MR Gillespie 8* (26b 1x4)   FH Edwards 19.4-4-84-2

115.6

Edwards to O'Brien, OUT, well, the plan has worked, Fidel Edwards has bounced out Ian O'Brien. The ball came at him around waist high and popped up high off his bat enabling Edwards to run into the off side and take a simple catch.

IE O'Brien c & b Edwards 4 (25m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

New Zealand 365/10   MR Gillespie 16* (38b 2x4)   FH Edwards 22-4-91-3
