11,12,13,14,15 December 2008 (5-day match)
  New Zealand 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TG McIntosh c Baker b Gayle 34 139 110 5 0 30.90
34.2 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 97/2
View dismissal JM How c Chanderpaul b Powell 10 21 10 2 0 100.00
5.2 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 10/1
View dismissal DR Flynn lbw b Gayle 95 232 188 12 0 50.53
64.6 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 189/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Marshall b Gayle 15 37 22 3 0 68.18
42.5 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 128/3
View dismissal JD Ryder c Chanderpaul b Powell 89 255 157 12 0 56.68
99.3 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. 310/7
View dismissal BB McCullum c †Ramdin b Taylor 25 120 66 3 0 37.87
88.4 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. 278/5
View dismissal JEC Franklin hit wicket b Edwards 7 25 19 1 0 36.84
93.2 short, Franklin hops on to the back foot trying to turn it round the corner and he has stood on his stumps! 289/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Marshall b Powell 30 45 43 4 0 69.76
103.3 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. 327/8
View dismissal KD Mills lbw b Edwards 12 58 30 2 0 40.00
111.4 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. 347/9
MR Gillespie not out 16 68 38 2 0 42.10
View dismissal IE O'Brien c & b Edwards 4 25 16 1 0 25.00
115.6 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. 365/10

  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Franklin b O'Brien 74 135 103 11 1 71.84
31.5 that's a huge wicket for New Zealand. It was short and sat up but instead of the cut Gayle tried to fetch it and heave it over mid-wicket but only manages a top edge down to fine leg 114/3
View dismissal S Chattergoon c O'Brien b Mills 13 81 50 1 0 26.00
19.1 first short ball of the day and Chattergoon obliges by pulling meekly to the man at square leg 66/1
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †McCullum b Mills 8 20 16 2 0 50.00
23.5 that's the end of Sarwan, loose drive outside off stump catches the outside edge and he's put his side in a bit of bother here. 87/2
View dismissal XM Marshall c Ryder b Vettori 20 70 51 4 0 39.21
39.2 Referral Marshall prods forward and that has popped up to short-leg. It looks like it came straight off the shoulder of the bat and umpire Saheba will have to reverse his decision. 134/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul b Vettori 76 281 200 10 0 38.00
99.6 bowled him. Chanderpaul in trying to keep the strike he has dropped to one knee to sweep but left his stumps exposed and loses his middle one 340/10
View dismissal BP Nash c Ryder b Mills 23 68 60 3 1 38.33
58.4 well a lesser batsman has succumbed to Kyle Mills. That's the end of the man on debut, prodding forward and that has taken a thick outside edge and is snaffled in the gully by Ryder 162/5
View dismissal D Ramdin lbw b Vettori 5 16 5 1 0 100.00
61.4 big appeal from Vettori and given. Hang on, the batsman is challenging, this is a first. So, another referral. Looks like it may be going down, Ramdin is a long way forward, tough one this for Rudi Koertzen and it's taking a really long time.

Rudi confirms it and after a long long wait Ramdin is sent back to the hutch. 173/6
View dismissal JE Taylor c †McCullum b Vettori 106 138 107 17 3 99.06
95.4 got him this time, a thin edge as he tries to run Vettori down to third man and McCullum takes a regulation catch. 326/7
View dismissal DBL Powell lbw b Vettori 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
95.5 no he can't! Two in two for Vettori, absolutely plumb in front and the finger is raised by Amiesh Saheba 326/8
View dismissal FH Edwards c sub (SW Eathorne) b Vettori 0 8 6 0 0 0.00
97.5 Edwards goes after it and caught by a diving Sean Eathorne at long-off who is on as a sub for Ross Taylor. Great catch at full stretch. 334/9

View dismissal JM How b Powell 10 35 18 2 0 55.55
7.3 bowled him, another disappointment for How. Straight through him just clipped the top of middle stump, perhaps a few words from Powell after the previous delivery may have unsettled him. 33/1
View dismissal KD Mills b Powell 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
7.4 great delivery, Powell is really fired up and that takes the inside edge and cannons into leg stump. No real footwork there and he leaves with the roars of Powell ringing in his ears 33/2
