5.4

Nehra to Williamson, no run, straightens on the middle stump line, turned to right of midwicket

5.5

Nehra to Williamson, no run, on the pads, he tries to tuck it away but misses and the ball rolls away of the pad

5.6

Nehra to Williamson, 1 leg bye, And again. The bat comes down at an angle and he can't quite connect with the delivery on the pads.

New Zealand 28/2   KS Williamson 0* (4b)

6.1

Kumar to Williamson, no run, around the off stump line, pushed away to covers

6.2

Kumar to Williamson, no run, leans forward to push the length delivery back down the track

6.3

Kumar to Williamson, no run, lovely delivery seaming away from the off stump line and Williamson pushes inside the line and the ball flies past the outside edge. He looks down at where the ball landed

6.4

Kumar to Williamson, no run, And this time, he prefers no drama. He covers the off stump and shoulders arms. Dhoni collects it.

6.5

Kumar to Williamson, OUT, 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.

KS Williamson b Kumar 0 (7m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 28/3   KS Williamson 0 (9b)
