    5.4 my, my. That's not international cricket, you can't keep making mistakes and expect to get away with it. Boult bowls this full around off, and his natural angle gets the ball to come back into him. Rohit stays in his crease, looks at the right side of the ground to hit the ball but plays an awful stroke, it's another T20 heave, the ball finds a big gap between bat and pad, and knocks off stump. Four mistakes in seven balls, one of them makes him pay 29/2
    3.2 edged and gone! Fantastic bowling from Boult. Good length outside off, fifth-stump line, it's not wide enough for Dhawan to cut, and Dhawan feels he needs to play because of that previous delivery and with Boult getting the ball to hold its line. This one, though, pitches and swings further away, and Dhawan wafts at it needlessly. Gets a thick outside edge which flies at chest height to Latham's left. That's Boult's wicket, set him up with some superb bowling. 16/1
    49.2 six and out. But he's done his job, much more actually. It's shortish around off, Kohli uses his bottom hand to swing through the line, the ball lobs to long-on, where Boult takes a simple catch. A tired acknowledgement of the applause, what fitness, superb innings 270/7
    15.2 and goooone. Another start for Jadhav and he's chipped his wicket away. Flight around off, Jadhav gets forward but plays the ball too early, the ball is just bunted back towards Santner's left, he runs around and takes the sitter. The key on these surfaces is to play the ball as late as possible, but Santner slowed this one up, compared to the pace of the previous delivery, forcing Jadhav to play earlier than he should have. 71/3
    28.4 taken at long leg! It's a top-edged hook - when Karthik played that shot once before, and he was beaten for pace. This time, he miscues it down the throat of Colin Munro. He does make a bit of a mess of it though, sliding to his left and nearly letting it pop out. Luckily, he is able to brace the ball against his chest. New Zealand were desperate for a breakthrough and Southee provides it 144/4
    40.6 soft! Guptill may have not picked the ball, but he takes it anyway. It's a shortish, wide delivery outside off, was there to be cut and Dhoni goes after it. Guptill is standing very close, at point, and seeing Dhoni's backlift, he would have anticipated a fierce cut, but it was a gentle push and that lack of pace almost did him in. But he takes the catch somehow, anyhow. 201/5
    45.3 lovely catch from Williamson, superb stuff, New Zealand's fielding has been amazing. A full slow ball outside off, Pandya backs away, doesn't get underneath that enough, the ball goes straight up off the outside half of the bat, Williamson runs across from cover point and takes a stunning diving catch at the mid-off region, running back 238/6
    49.6 lovely catch to finish, 131 kph. Another short delivery on leg, Bhuvneshwar gets underneath the length but not enough power, pulls away towards deep midwicket, where Nicholls dives in front to take a great catch. 16 runs and two wickets off the over. 280/8

    17.2 fine catch from Karthik. 140 kph, not a great shot from Guptill. Short around off, Guptill chooses to pull but gets a leading edge on the shot, the ball hangs in the air for a while. Karthik runs in from deep square leg, and takes a great catch running in. Lost his patience there, maybe should have weathered the storm for a little while longer. Got big on him, and the fact that he had to drag the pull didn't help him. That's Pandya's wicket-taking hard length 80/3
    9.3 leading edge, goes straight up and Karthik takes the chance backpedalling from cover point. Munro's looked dreadful against the slower balls, and he's fallen to one. The offcutter from Bumrah, with no change in arm speed, and pitching on leg stump to draw the batsman into a flick. He does exactly that, playing too early, his bat wandering well in front of his body. End of a rather awkward stay in the middle. 48/1
    12.3 keeps getting those big wickets! And it looks like India's plans against Williamson have worked - toss it up wide, make him play away from the body, and Williamson obliges by bopping the ball tamely to extra cover. Jadhav takes it without any trouble this time. 62/2
    48.5 Chahal is claiming the catch at extra cover and Taylor is gone for 95! He's played a splendid hand, but it ends with a wide half-volley being smacked to the fielder, low to his right. 280/4
