    11.1 gone! The same way Chahal got him in the first match, Pandya again but a much easier catch. Lots of flight on middle, Guptill wanted to go more over long-on, instead of long-off, and so the ball skews off the outside half, instead of a straight bat. The ball goes up and Pandya runs in to take a simple catch 105/1

    14.2 Siraj's maiden international wicket, that of Williamson, he'll take that. Full down leg, a poor ball I must say. Williamson flicks uppishly towards square leg, but doesn't get enough power behind that, Rohit runs to his left, and takes a reverse-cupped catch by his shoulder. A stronger player and that would have been six. 140/2

    1.6 given out caught behind! It took a while for Nandan to raise his finger - so much that the wicketkeeper Phillips was desperately urging his captain to review. It eventually isn't needed - but a double-wicket over is exactly what New Zealand needed. And who else but Boult to provide it. Back of a length, pushing across Rohit, who looks to glide it to third man, while being stuck on the crease. A bit of extra bounce and a bit of nip off the pitch does him in. 11/2
    1.2 through him! It's that inward movement again - only slight - but combine that with scoreboard pressure that makes Dhawan play outrageous shots way too early and it is deadly. Good length ball, the batsman tries to whip it over mid-on, misses the line completely and turns around to see his middle stump flattened. After his worst ODI and T20I outings over the last week, Boult is back! 6/1

    8.4 that's a leading edge and Munro takes it himself! Excellent cricket! It's a knuckle ball, the seam wobbling as it hits a full length on middle and lures Iyer to slog across the line. The ball soars into the night sky. it's swirling, it's teasing and Munro tracks it perfectly, running to his right, near midwicket or mid-on and holds onto it, which is all that matters 65/3
    16.3 caught behind! Kohli is the only man going for this total and with his loss, India might be done. Again, he is forced to take a risk, haring down the pitch and looking for a lofted shot down the ground. Santner bowls it quick, cramps him up and gets a thick edge which Phillips takes very well, close to his chest. 123/5
    9.1 doesn't pick the wrong 'un! And Pandya wears an absolutely bewildered look, as if still unable to reconcile with the fact that he has been completely foxed. On a pitch that isn't turning much, a legbreak bowler can pitch the googly in line with the stumps and still hit them, which is what happens. Sodhi hits the perfect length, tempting the batsman to shift his weight back to try and cut. But then the ball spins the opposite way, Pandya is hurrying into a flick across the line. He can't catch up with the ball in time 67/4
    19.3 the short ball gets too big on him - arrives too quickly as well - and the pull shot goes only as far as square leg. Finally something sticks for Santner. And Boult, after two of his worst performances ever, has four-for 154/7
    17.3 no pace on the ball and Axar can't put enough on it to beat extra cover. It's a very short ball, it's an offcutter, and it's wide of the advancing batsman. Beautiful tactics. Axar reaches out to make contact, in doing so he loses his balance, and so power. 130/6
