Vettori to Rankin, OUT, The bearded Vettori comes up with a yorker to wrap up a big win. Full, quick and on the middle and off stump line. It beat the hurried waft and rammed into the front boot. It would have pegged back the middle stump. NZ win by 129 runs.

Ricky has a query: 'will Vettori be on a Hat-trick for the next NZ match, since he did not get to bowl a 3rd ball to get it in this match?'
Nope. It doesn't carry on to the next game.

This is Sriram Veera signing off. Coming up tomorrow: South Africa v West Indies. Hopefully, it will be a cracker of a contest. Join us then.

Vettori to McCallan, OUT, castled. McCallan goes down the track and yorks himself as Vettori pushed that one through quick. The ball goes under the bat and he must have heard the death rattle. Although it appeared that he didn't hear it as he was trying to get back into the crease. He saw the damage and walked back to the pavilion
