    5.2 Nehra gets some leather on wood this time. It was in the corridor, seaming away ever so late and Ingram was looking to defend but it got the outside edge. India on the attack here. Both bowlers fresh as they didn't play the Test series and doing the job here. 27/2
    2.3 PK has been getting some movement - both in and out - and strikes with this delivery. It moves away late from the off stump line and the batsman gets the edge on the defensive prod. He was looking to come forward to defend and tried to cover for the movement but it shaped away to catch the edge. Simple catch through to Dhoni. 15/1
    42.2 Out five short of 100. He played a fab knock but he is gone now. It was the full-length delivery that straightened on the middle-stump line and he tried to work it across the line and missed it completely. Trapped! He has done the hard work and has put NZ in a strong position. Can the lower order push them on ahead? 241/6
    6.5 Out for a duck! What a ball, though. P E A C H. It curved in the air, landed on the middle stump line and you could sense why Williamson was shaping to play it towards say mid-on. But the ball moved away at the last instant, opened him up completely, and pegged back the off stump. Clatter! Things are bound to get better from here on Williamson. You can't get such a good delivery every time you walk out to bat. He doesn't look back at the destruction. He has a look at where it landed, his mouth frozen into an bewildered expression of 'oooh' and he walks away. 28/3

    38.3 Ojha takes him out! He had problem with Jadeja in the last over, playing across the line. And he does it again now. It was a loopy delivery on the middle and off stump line, Styris lunged forward and ended up playing all around it. He isn't happy as he walks off but what a fine knock this was. Oram walks in 218/4
    40.5 Trapped! That bouncer is followed by a skidding short-of-length delivery on the middle-stump line. Oram wafted across the line, bat going across in an angle, and missed. Gone! 236/5
    44.4 Stumped! It drifted in from round the stumps and turned away. Elliott lunged forward to drive on the up and missed. Dhoni does the rest. NZ threatening to waste the end overs. India attempt to claw their way back 254/7
    47.1 banged in short and Hopkins goes for the big shot, attempts the pull shot but holes out at deep square-leg region 277/8
    48.4 Tuffey holes out at long-on. He cleared the front foot and drilled it high but couldn't clear the fielder at the boundary. Nice little cameo from him though to push NZ towards 300. Can they reach there? 288/9

    7.1 Two in Two! Dinesh Karthik goes this time, it was an in-ducker from outside off and Karthik played down the wrong line as he played the forward defensive. He missed the ball and was struck flush on the pads in front of off. It looked plumb despite the fact that he was standing out of the crease. Replays suggest it would have carried over the stumps, with the bounce but well... 39/2
    6.6 got him! Sehwag has never liked the short ball aimed at the body and Mills did well to persist with that line of attack. Sehwag was in trouble once earlier looking to pull, this time he gets some glove on it as it goes down the leg and it is through to the keeper for an easy take. Sehwag is gone. 39/1
    9.2 Thanks for coming! It was all so simple; something that you see usually in the catching practice in the morning before the game. This delivery kicked up from short of length outside off stump and Rohit opened the bat-face and guided it straight to first slip. Simple. Tuffey smiles. 44/3
    16.5 And ladies and gentlemen, we have another man swallowed in that slip cordon. Very simple again. Fullish and outside off stump, Yuvraj has a waft and Taylor takes a catch. Too simple, some might say. Anyway that's that. India tottering at 62 for 6 62/6
    11.2 Oh well! Edged straight to second slip. It was a short-of-length delivery outside off stump and Raina stabbed at it, bat away from the body, and it goes straight to the slip cordon. The ball cut away from him and he ended up chasing it. 50/4
    13.5 Dhoni is run out and he walks. His scratchy innings comes to an end. This one was jabbed close to the off side and he wants a single. His partner doesn't. Yuvraj took couple of steps down the track and froze. And Dhoni tries to turn back. Too late. Tuffey had already screamed past him, swooped on the ball and flicked a direct hit. Gone! 53/5
    28.2 And another slip catch. Loverly! It was floated well outside off stump and Jadeja chased it for a big drive. Styris takes the catch. Where is Taylor I say? Williamson was out for a duck but picks up a wicket now. Life can't be that bad eh? 84/9
    19.1 Awww. That slip catch again. Well... the top order didn't last. Why would the lower-order batsmen? It was the short of length delivery that kicked up outside off and PK steers it straight to slip cordon. 67/7
    25.6 Yep. You guessed it right. Another slip catch. Fullish and outside off stump and Mithun edges his drive. Just two more now. How quickly can NZ wrap this up? 82/8
    29.3 And it's all over. Full and outside off and Nehra drives it straight to mid-off. NZ win by 200 runs. Magnificent thumping win! A rout! 88/10
