West Indies tour of New Zealand, 2nd T20I: New Zealand v West Indies at Hamilton, Dec 28, 2008
New Zealand won by 36 runs
28 December 2008 - day/night match (20-over match)

Gayle to McCullum, OUT, goes to cut the ball and it's in the air for a moment. Looks like it's dipping short of Chanderpaul at extra cover but he gets his hands underneath it to take a great catch

BB McCullum c Chanderpaul b Gayle 59 (49m 34b 6x4 4x6) SR: 173.52

New Zealand 130/1   JD Ryder 58* (36b 7x4 3x6)   CH Gayle 1.4-0-18-1

Pollard to Taylor, OUT, Taylor takes a step down the track and makes good contact to lift the ball flat through square leg and it looks like six all the way but Xavier Marshall pulls off an absolute blinder of a catch right on the rope to the amazement of the crowd and Ross Taylor. Stunning!

LRPL Taylor c Marshall b Pollard 6 (6m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

New Zealand 139/2   JD Ryder 59* (38b 7x4 3x6)   KA Pollard 1.4-0-16-1

Gayle to Ryder, OUT, Gayle pitches it up tempting Ryder and he takes the bait clubbing the ball across the line straight down the throat of Sarwan at long-off

JD Ryder c Sarwan b Gayle 62 (59m 41b 7x4 3x6) SR: 151.21

New Zealand 142/3   JDP Oram 0* (0b)   CH Gayle 2.1-0-19-2

Pollard to Flynn, OUT, slower ball pitched up and Flynn goes for it. Ramdin makes good ground running behind himself and the ball is spinning in the air for a long time before he makes a decent catch

DR Flynn c †Ramdin b Pollard 3 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

New Zealand 152/4   JDP Oram 6* (7b)   KA Pollard 3-0-25-2

Pollard to Oram, 1 run, OUT, dropped down to midwicket and the lack of pace on the ball allows them to turn back for two. Looks like it's safe but a good pick up and throw makes things interesting. Oram looks home but the decision is sent to the third umpire and Oram is out by the smallest of margins

JDP Oram run out 9 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

New Zealand 161/5   * (b)   KA Pollard 3.2-0-26-2

Taylor to Vettori, OUT, bowled up in to the body and Vettori gets caught for room and tries to lean the ball away to third man but can only play the ball on to his stumps

DL Vettori b Taylor 2 (14m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 164/6   JEC Franklin 3* (5b)   JE Taylor 2.1-0-21-1

Benn to Franklin, OUT, pitched up and he goes for more heroics but he can only help the ball to the man at long-off who takes a simple catch

JEC Franklin c Findlay b Benn 20 (18m 11b 1x4 2x6) SR: 181.81

New Zealand 184/7   KD Mills 2* (4b)   SJ Benn 3.5-0-44-1

Taylor to Mills, OUT, yorker which Mills doesn't connect with and it removes his off-stump

KD Mills b Taylor 6 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

New Zealand 189/8   EP Thompson 1* (1b)   JE Taylor 3.3-0-27-2

Taylor to Southee, OUT, last ball pitched up and through to the keeper. The ball is throw from the keeper to the bowler who whips off the bails taking Southee's wicket by couple of feet.

TG Southee run out 2 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 191/8   EP Thompson 1* (1b)   JE Taylor 4-0-29-2
