    6.4 pins him in front of middle! It's an issue that has long plagued Guptill. His front leg doesn't come down the pitch, it goes across instead. So when the ball is pitched up on off stump - like this one - and gets just enough inward movement - like this one - he's in trouble. The bat has to come around the pad. It's not quick enough. 46/1
    31.5 picks out short cover with laser guided precision! Latham's cover drive, for once, fails. It was tossed up wide so he was within his right to go for the shot. But he should have kept it down with fielders up in the circle 169/6
    12.6 that goes straight and Williamson has played all across it! Went to sweep - which is dangerous by itself when a ball is in line with the stumps - but this one was so slow. The batsman was through the shot too early and as such was a sitting duck. Jadhav must have magic fingers... well, he used only the forefinger to work on that ball to make sure it didn't turn. New Zealand's best batsman falls to India's most part-time of part-timers 80/2
    28.3 absolute beauty! It was slow. It was tossed up. It was drifting in. And it dips too. Poor Taylor, he was suckered into coming forward, suckered into flicking agains the turn, which dances past the leading edge, through to Dhoni who completes the stumping. Dream delivery for a legspinner 153/3
    29.4 he's getting wickets off full tosses! Anderson looks to lash it over cover, but the connection is made a little too high on that and the ball deflects to mid-off. Rahane has to move to his left a bit and takes the catch at chest high 160/4
    30.2 looks like Mishra has another stumping! Dhoni is very certain of it. The loopy legspinner. It's a damn fine sight in cricket. Seduces Ronchi to drive at it, and in his haste, he's dragged his back foot out of the crease. Then it turns, oh so beautifully past the outside edge and straight into the wicketkeeper's waiting hands. Dhoni is so good with these things. Has his hands right by the stumps, not behind them like some others, and has a lot less distance to cover 161/5
    48.6 that is not at all timed. It's a full toss, but Neesham seems to have got under it too much while trying to smash it down the ground. Skews away to cover, where Jadhav takes a fine catch under pressure. Thats the end of a record partnership for New Zealand for the 9th wicket - 84 in 67 balls 283/9
    34.2 held on the pitch, produced the leading edge and point takes the catch gleefully. It was back of a length. It was on the pads. The flick shot wasn't the worst one, but he is trumped by the ball coming at him a lot slower than he expected. Kohli, the catcher, sticks his tongue out in celebration. Santner, the departing batsman, jams his bat into the turf. Sums up the theme of the match 180/7

    37.5 drags it on! India keep changing bowlers, and they keep getting wickets in the first over. This was a short ball, Southee went for the pull but was into the shot too early. Inside edge clatters back onto the stumps 199/8

    49.4 backs away to flay the ball through cover, and he would have had it not been for Bumrah trumping him with some very clever change of pace. Flashes a big smile after felling the off stump 285/10

    8.4 slower ball has him lbw! Lovely change of pace. Rohit didn't quite pick it early enough, and his attempt at adjusting to it comes up short because Southee has also given this ball a bit of offcut. The flick shot comes down outside the line of the ball. He is pinned in line with middle and leg. Umpire Oxenford takes his time but then gives the nod 41/2
    2.5 that's all a bit soft! And Henry proves game-changing for New Zealand again. He was celebrating the moment Rahane popped this back of a length ball in the air. It went in the direction of cover, and Santner was the man there. He's a fantastic fielder. Perhaps this pitch isn't quite as true as I thought. That ball certainly stopped on Rahane 13/1

    35.5 he's struck! With that back of a length ball that New Zealand like. And it is precisely for this reason that they like it - some hold onto the dry pitch and if a batsman is driving on the up, there is every chance he could be caught. That's why they have a short cover in the 36th over. Dhoni was left reaching for the ball, mistimes the shot and Taylor takes the catch 192/3
