ICC World Cup, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 18th match, Group C

Canada v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 114 runs


Sandher to Fleming, OUT, the breakthrough! Fleming tried to use his feet to get to the pitch and flicked the ball low towards short midwicket, nicely bowled by Sandher and well taken, low down, by Billcliff

SP Fleming c Billcliff b Sandher 66 (96m 67b 8x4 1x6) SR: 98.50

New Zealand 142/1   L Vincent 54* (63b 6x4 1x6)   KT Sandher 3.3-0-20-1


Sandher to Fulton, OUT, Nelson strikes! Well, not specifically Nelson itself, but you know what we mean. That one angles across the righthander and would have gone on to hit leg-and-middle

PG Fulton lbw b Sandher 47 (50m 47b 4x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 222/2   L Vincent 86* (100b 8x4 1x6)   KT Sandher 6.2-0-31-2


Samad to Styris, OUT, Bagai does very well to cling on to that one in the end. He lost it in the sun, despite some big Fly-type sunnies allegedly assisting him, as Styris shot that high and higher, straight up and Bagai had to run forward and, at the last minute, dive forward to - like removing a nice apple soufflé from the oven - cling on with the big gloves

SB Styris c †Bagai b Samad 28 (12m 17b 6x4 0x6) SR: 164.70

New Zealand 253/3   L Vincent 89* (104b 8x4 1x6)   AM Samad 2.2-0-31-1


Davison to McMillan, OUT, great catch! McMillan opened his front leg to give himself room and launched it high towards deep midwicket, but he was hitting against the breeze and the ball held up in the air...Samad ran in from the fence and held a superbly judged catch, making sure the ball didn't come out as he slid on the turf

CD McMillan c Samad b Davison 10 (4m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

New Zealand 266/4   L Vincent 92* (109b 8x4 1x6)   JM Davison 7.4-0-54-1


Davison to Vincent, OUT, what a strange dismissal, a loopy offspinner from Davison dips as it arrives at Vincent who tries to work through midwicket - having started to think about the sweep - and got a leading edge which gently lobbed back to Davison

L Vincent c & b Davison 101 (178m 117b 9x4 1x6) SR: 86.32

New Zealand 278/5   JDP Oram 3* (6b)   JM Davison 9-0-59-2
