    9.6 Done in the flight. It was tossed up outside off and Guptill dragged the lofted hit towards long-off. Munaf Patel rushed forward and lunged out to take a good catch 46/2
    6.4 Vijay made that look easy. It was the short delivery and was pulled low to his right at short midwicket. A mistimed shot. He lunged to collect that. 32/1
    25.1 short of length delivery outside off and Kane went for the cut but must have got a thin bottom edge ..... Yuvraj was running towards the keeper before he stopped and turned for the appeal . Up went the finger. 113/3
    33.3 And he is gone now, trying to repeat the shot. But this was not the off break but the carrom ball. He went for the big swing to the on side -one of his fav hits -but top edges it straight up. And NZ hurtle towards a big defeat 157/7
    29.3 It was an arm-ball and around the off stump and Scotty went for the cut shot. The ball flew quickly to first slip where Yusuf does well to take it on the rebound. And yuvraj seems to say "I told you, I will get him" to Raina who is rushing to congratulate him. 131/4
    30.3 Another catch for Yusuf at first slip. It landed on a length around off and straightened. Elliott was squared-up and stabbed it of the outer edge straight to Yusuf 136/5
    31.4 One more Yuvraj. The collapse is on. It was flighted outside off and driven straight to short cover 144/6
    35.3 It leaps from the rough .. extra bounce on Hopkins who checks his shot and the ball balloons to short third man fielder. The camera swings to Nehra who has a lovely wry smile! 169/8
    45.1 What a catch from the captain! McCullum carved it over covers - he didn't quite connect it but it still seemed he had cleared the field .. Gautam dashed back from cover and lunged forward to take the ball dropping in from over his shoulder. A youtube moment. Reminds me of Roshan Mahanama. Fine innings but its over now 236/9
    45.2 And India have won. It was the short delivery and Mills top edged the pull. It climbed ever so high until gravity started to drag it down. And Saha collects that. Game over. 236/10
