West Indies in New Zealand ODI Series - 2nd ODI

New Zealand v West Indies

West Indies won by 5 wickets (with 1 ball remaining) (D/L method)

2.1

Edwards to McCullum, OUT, McCullum shuffles down the track as usual and Edwards has pitched the ball up. He tries a defensive push only to catch the outside edge and the keeper Ramdin makes a good diving catch away towards first slip. Excellent start for West Indies

BB McCullum c †Ramdin b Edwards 1 (10m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 9/1   JD Ryder 8* (11b 1x6)   FH Edwards 1.1-0-3-1

11.6

Miller to Ryder, OUT, pitched wide of off-stump and Ryder tries to lift the ball in to the leg-side. He doesn't catch all of it and Chattergoon is waiting at deep cover who takes a good catch moving forwards inside the rope

JD Ryder c Chattergoon b Miller 32 (59m 43b 1x4 3x6) SR: 74.41

New Zealand 59/2   JM How 23* (27b 2x4)   NO Miller 1-0-5-1

14.4

Taylor to How, OUT, tried to play across his stumps through the leg-side but Jamie How is undone by a full toss from Taylor which strikes middle and off.

JM How b Taylor 27 (60m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

New Zealand 68/3   LRPL Taylor 4* (7b)   JE Taylor 3.4-0-17-1

16.2

Taylor to Flynn, OUT, fuller and wider delivery and Flynn plays the drive shot too late and he gets a thin edge which carries through to the keeper. Good timely wicket for West Indies

DR Flynn c †Ramdin b Taylor 4 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

New Zealand 76/4   LRPL Taylor 8* (12b)   JE Taylor 4.2-0-20-2

19.1

Miller to Taylor, OUT, flighted up and a touch slower Taylor slices right underneath it and he knows as soon as he hits the ball he's in trouble. The ball soars high and straight in to the hands of the fielder at mid-off

LRPL Taylor c Powell b Miller 13 (32m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

New Zealand 87/5   JDP Oram 5* (9b)   NO Miller 4.1-0-20-2

23.1

Edwards to Oram, OUT, bowled down the leg-side and Oram leans back and tries to go for the big shot through midwicket. He catches the top-edge and Edwards makes a great diving catch running in from deep square leg

JDP Oram c Chattergoon b Edwards 25 (29m 23b 2x4 1x6) SR: 108.69

New Zealand 114/6   GD Elliott 6* (10b)   FH Edwards 4.1-1-13-2

23.3

Edwards to Vettori, OUT, captain Vettori tries to angle the ball away to the third man area but it's too straight for that sort of shot and he plays the ball on to his own stumps. Not the first captain to go out first ball today...

DL Vettori b Edwards 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 115/7   GD Elliott 7* (11b)   FH Edwards 4.3-1-14-3

26.2

Gayle to Mills, OUT, Mills has to go for it but he picks out Miller at long-on who takes a simple catch as there's not enough on it to reach the boundary

KD Mills c Miller b Gayle 6 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

New Zealand 135/8   GD Elliott 19* (21b 1x4)   CH Gayle 2.2-0-24-1
