    2.2 That's the 100th ODI wicket for Nehra. It landed on a length on the leg and middle and hit him in right in front of the middle. Plumb. And it appears as if it did hit the pad first too. What a comeback this is proving for Nehra after years in wilderness. 4/2
    0.3 Umpire Dharmasena has sent Ryder on his way. Lbw. It landed full on the off and middle line and moved in to hit Ryder in front of the middle. Ryder was looking to play across the line and is a dead duck. It would have crashed into the leg stump. 1/1
    14.6 Yuvraj strikes in his first over. Fine catch by Rahul at first slip. It was pushed through around off stump, turned a touch and Guptill stabbed it low to left of Rahul who makes a sharp catch look very easy 51/4
    5.5 NZ continue to wobble here. Taylor has been nicked out. It landed short of length and left Taylor who pushed at it; he did try to withdraw his bat at the last minute but it was too late by then. Edge and gone. Dhoni lunged to his right to collect that. 19/3
    20.3 quicker one, sliding down the leg side, Elliott misses the flick and Dhoni 'catches' it. Loud appeal and it has been given out. The first replay suggests it was off the pad. Will confirm again after more replays. 66/5
    28.1 Done in by the slower one. It was around 114 kmph, on a length, Oram checked his shot and ended up chipping it straight back to Ishant 101/6
    32.1 and he has struck first up - this is a short innocuous delivery, asking to be hit, which Broom does, but straight and low to Raina at midwicket, who makes no mistake. Dismissals, they don't come softer 116/7
    42.3 Clatter! It landed back of a length around off and middle line and shaped in a touch, Vettori went for an on-the-up drive but pushed his bat outside the line and was beaten as the delivery moved in a touch. 142/9
    37.6 No 8. It was a short-of-length delivery moving away from Mills who tried to punch it through the off side but ended up dragging it back to his stumps. It can happen on a slow track such as this. Gary Kirsten applauds from the dressing room. 134/8
    46.3 India need 156 to win. It was the bouncer, Butler tries to upper cut it to third man but succeeds in lobbing a dolly to cover! 155/10

    2.3 Got him! It landed on a length just outside off and moved in to hit him on the middle and leg line. It would have missed the leg stump but that's that. New Zealand taste some early success. 7/1
    19.2 Oh my ... what a soft dismissal! The ball stopped a touch on Tendulkar who was on the back foot and he ended up chipping it straight to cover. Tame way to get out. Vettori can't believe his luck. 71/3
    18.1 trapped in front. Fullish, straight on the middle and leg line, Dravid shuffled across to flick it across the line, misses and it would have crashed into the leg stump. Dharmasena makes the correct decision. 67/2
    23.6 Dan the man strikes. He flighted this one outside off, slowed up the pace and got it to drift away, Yuvraj tried to repeat his slog sweep but only skied the ball to midwicket. Lovely clever bowling this 84/4
