    33.2 captain Young's moment of fame is here, and he will be remembered for years to come. Chopra lofts it to what he thinks as a gap at wide mid-on. Young runs across and dives at the last moment with the left hand reaching out. The elbow grazes the ground and it is a miracle that he doesn't let go of the ball. Amazing catch! 132/2
    13.4 Neynens strikes! Chand has been fooled by a slower ball that is coming in. He plays down the wrong line and the ball hits the stumps. First strike for New Zealand 51/1
    35.5 full-toss on the off stump. Aparajith comes down the track and lofts it down the throat of Young at mid-on. Another set batsman goes 138/3
    45.5 flighted ball on the leg stump. Vihari comes down the track and plays it straight into the hands of Carter at cover 183/6
    36.5 Zol, the best batsman for India before the start of this match is gone. he comes down the track and fails to keep the square-drive down. Horne at point has to move to his left and take the simple catch 139/4
    43.3 good tossed up delivery, Nath comes down the track and just manages to play it straight into the hands of Horne 169/5

    48 fuller ball on the middle stump. No heroics from Harmeet this time around as he holes out to deep midwicket. Carter takes an easy catch 198/7
    48.1 two-in-two now as the 'twenty four runs of five balls' Passi lofts it to Neynens at long-on. He was in search of quick runs 198/8
    48.3 what a phase this is! The lower order collapse comes back to haunt India. they lose three wickets in four balls. Ravikant plays all over the fuller ball on the off stump, and misses. He turns back to see the stumps disturbed. What was a 225 plus total is slowly turning into a struggle for playing out the overs 199/9

    9.5 first strike! Fuller ball outside the off stump. Davidson drives, and the bat turns in his hand as he has played the shot. The ball doesn't get the distance and ends up being an easy catch for Ravikant at mid-off 29/1
    16.3 the fielders of India turning it on now. Short and wide outside the off stump. Carter cuts and the Akshdeep dives forward and takes the catch at point 55/3
