Mithun to Taylor, 1 wide, moves down the leg side and Dhoni collects


Mithun to Taylor, no run, cuts back from outside off, more than what Taylor anticipated and he gets cramped but manages to punch it out to point


Mithun to Taylor, 1 run, tip and run. He pushes it towards mid-off for what initially seemed a very quick single but turned out to be a pretty comfortably-taken run


Mithun to Styris, 2 runs, fullish, on the middle, moving in and Styris works it between short midwicket and square-leg fielders


Mithun to Styris, no run, it lands well outside off and cuts back in sharply. Styris was looking to defend and was struck high on the pad outside the line of off stump


Mithun to Styris, no run, Shout for a catch behind decision. It was another incutter from outside off and again, Styris pushed outside the line of the delivery. It's cutting in more than he thinks it would. The ball hit the pad. I don't think there was any bat on it. The initial replays don't show any. Further replays on that shout for a catch throw more doubts! It looks as if there might have been an inside edge on to the pad. But no snicko (not yet at least) and no hot spot. Can't really say.


Mithun to Styris, no run, Another one that cuts back in from outside off and again Styris is in trouble. This time he is hit high on the pad.

New Zealand 34/3   A Mithun 1-0-4-0

Mithun to Styris, 4 leg byes, Like in his first over, he pushes the first ball to the pads and Styris plays the leg glance to perfection. Oh may be not! Leg byes apparently! Where is the eye doctor!


Mithun to Styris, no run, gets behind the line to push this one away


Mithun to Styris, no run, another one that tilts towards the pads, Styris falls over a touch as he tries to flick it away and is hit on the pad.


Mithun to Styris, 1 run, Loud shout for lbw but turned down. It was another nip-backer, that cut in from outside off and Styris is in more trouble. He was hit in front of the middle stump but was saved by the height. It would have gone over the middle stump.


Mithun to Taylor, no run, gets forward to defend this to the off side


Mithun to Taylor, 2 runs, on the pads this time, easily worked away to deep backward square-leg region

New Zealand 41/3   A Mithun 2-0-7-0

Mithun to Styris, 1 run, leans forward to dab this to the on side and the ball rolls away to square-leg


Mithun to Taylor, 1 run, taps this down to fine-leg region


Mithun to Styris, no run, shortish and outside off, Styris can't connect with the attempted cut. Dhoni collects


Mithun to Styris, no run, leans forward to defend a length delivery tilting in from outside off stump


Mithun to Styris, 3 runs, fuller, straightens outside off - he might not have the ability to curve it away yet but slips in the straight ball now and then - and Styris drives through covers.


Mithun to Taylor, no run, on the middle stump line, worked to midwicket

New Zealand 52/3   A Mithun 3-0-12-0

Mithun to Taylor, 1 wide, this one slips down the leg. Again, the first ball of the over.


Mithun to Taylor, no run, gets forward to defend this back-of-length delivery


Mithun to Taylor, FOUR, Crunch! It was a length delivery outside off and Taylor whiplashed it on the up and through cover point


Mithun to Taylor, 1 run, strays on the leg and middle line, flicked away for a single


Mithun to Styris, FOUR, Crack of doom! short and well outside off and Styris cuts hard past the diving yuvraj singh at point. Fierce square-cut.


Mithun to Styris, 1 wide, And pushes this one down the leg side. The last ball was an attempt at bowling the straighter one.


Mithun to Styris, 1 run, lands this outside off and cuts it back in to the middle, clipped past square-leg where that Indian crowd favourite Jadeja stops.


Mithun to Taylor, 1 leg bye, on the middle and off line, dabbed away to the on side

New Zealand 69/3   A Mithun 4-0-24-0
