    1.4 third time lucky for Holder! Guptill reaches outside the off stump and drives away from his body at a fuller ball that seams away from him. He gets an edge through to the keeper. An easier decision for the umpire to make, after he turned down two consecutive appeals 5/1
    20.1 he's been caught! Ryder's sliced a friendly full toss from outside off stump straight to the man at point. West Indies barely celebrate. They've been hit by a torrent of haymakers this afternoon 275/4
    4.5 is there going to be a mix up between the fielders? Charles and Simmons are getting in each others way, and Simmons takes it superbly! McCullum charged and slogged again, but this time he got a top edge and skied the ball high in the region between long on and deep midwicket. Charles was at long on and Simmons was at deep midwicket. They converged on the ball but Simmons called for it in the end and slid as he caught the steepler 56/2
    7.4 Taylor's not hit it as well as Ryder has been! He slogged it from wide outside off stump and ended up mis-hitting it towards wide long-on, where Powell took the catch. He was hitting that against the turn 84/3

    0.3 caught by the fielder running in from third man! Charles has a slog at a good length ball, he was aiming to hit down the ground but got a top edge that flew towards third man, Neesham got under it and judged the catch well 0/1
    3.1 caught at deep square leg! Superbly held! Simmons pulled a short of a length ball on the front foot and it travelled flat towards deep square leg. Milne came forward and to his left to get to the ball and adjusted well as it swerved and dipped to his right. He ended up catching it low to the ground, sliding as he did so 17/2
    11.2 a long hop and Walton has pulled it straight to the fielder on the deep square leg boundary, the fielder barely had to move 56/4
    3.5 falling like skittles, they are! Powell steps out of his crease and flat-bats a short of a length ball straight to mid-off, where Neesham takes it at head height 19/3

    19.4 caught at cover point! That appears to be a low catch by Milne. The umpires will check if it carried. It did. Deonarine went back and cut a length ball, it dipped on Milne, who got down low on one knee and just got his fingers under the ball 112/5

    The New Zealand allrounder has had to fight expectations and wrestle with injury. Most of all, he has had to strive to outdo his potential

  • The delights of a soggy souffle

    Cricket watchers who stuck with New Zealand v West Indies on New Year's day enjoyed a rare and utterly unexpected treat

  • West Indies 'caught off guard' by New Zealand assault - Bravo

    Corey Anderson said the record for fastest ODI century wasn't on his mind when he swung the six that set a new mark, quicker then the previous one by one delivery

  • Record wasn't on my mind - Anderson
