ICC World Cup - 27th match, Super Eights

West Indies v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 7 wickets (with 64 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to New Zealand v West Indies. I am Sriram Veera and will bring you all the live action.

Toss Fleming opts to field first.

Recent numbers point to New Zealand but West Indies are playing at home and that should be an advantage. Disappointing crowds though and Brian Lara is not a happy man.

Team changes Lendl Simmons comes in for Jerome Taylor. New Zealand ... well.... hopefully there won't be any more injuries.

Chris Gayle is not in good nick and that is hurting West Indies. The lovely fan site, Caribbeancricket.com has put him in the doghouse and that says something.

Mason to Gayle, 1 run, Nice probing start. Fullish, lands on the off stump line, goes on straight, Gayle pushes at it, gets a outside edge and runs to backward point

1.3

Bond to Gayle, no run, beaten. Fuller, swings away from the middle stump, Gayle stabs at it and the ball rushes past the outside edge. The seam is pointing towards slip.

1.4

Bond to Gayle, 1 wide, Again another wide. Again huge swing. Swing and seam for Bond. If he gets it right, he could be a handful on this track

Bond to Gayle, no run, Banana swing. Starts from leg stump, moves in the air towards off stump, Gayle jabs at it, the ball lands and moves further away.

1.5

3.2

Bond to Chanderpaul, no run, What a beauty. Peach of a delivery. The swing started from the leg stump line, moved in the air, landed on the middle stump line and shaped away and Chanderpaul is beaten. Maybe... Bradman might have nicked that. Maybe....

4.2

Mason to Chanderpaul, no run, on the middle and off, moves away a touch, Chanderpaul is squared-up, opens the bat-face, steers to point

Mason to Chanderpaul, no run, In the zone outside off stump, left alone

5.2

Bond to Gayle, no run, Similar delivery, same shot. This is going to be a game of patience.

5.3

Bond to Gayle, FOUR, Gayle is the first one to make the move. He charges out, backs away in the process, and flat-bats a length-delivery over mid-off. Now what will Bond do? A yorker, slower one or a bouncer?

5.5

8.1

Mason to Gayle, FOUR, Fullish, on the middle stump line and Gayle drives, the bat-handle rotates, and the ball goes in the air to right of square-leg where Fulton stretches his right hand out and ends up palming it. Tough chance.

Andrew Bissett is beaming. "Every time I've heard New Zealand mentioned in the past 3 weeks, we have been referred to as the "Dark Horse" and a team that has quietly slipped into the Super 8's, under the radar, without anyone noticing... however if everyone is noticing this, does that make the Black Caps a "light horse"?"

8.6

Mason to Gayle, 2 runs

End of over 9 (10 runs) West Indies 26/1 (RR: 2.88)
CH Gayle    17* (25b 3x4)      MJ Mason    5-2-13-0

9.1

Bond to Sarwan, no run, Full in length, furious, on the off and middle stump line, Sarwan defends it on the front foot.

Andrew, from the ground. "Viv Richards has been prowling around the press box. He tells me he's also disappointed with the crowds, but feels that there's been a significant dip in attendance since India's early exit from the tournament. "A great number of Indian fans from North America and Canada had booked to come over for these matches, but now they are not so interested."

9.2

Bond to Sarwan, no run, kicks up from short of length, Sarwan hops up and dead-bats it

12.3

Oram to Sarwan, 1 run, short in length, outside off stump, Sarwan cuts it to third man.

In the past Sarwan has had the problem of getting squared-up to deliveries short of length that straighten on the off stump line and which he'd nick behind. So far he has looked pretty fluent out there

Oram to Gayle, 1 run

12.5

Oram to Sarwan, FOUR, Length-delivery, outside off stump and Sarwan glides forward and drives on the up through extra cover. Fab shot.

13.4

Franklin to Gayle, FOUR, Not-a-man-move. Length-delivery outside off stump and Gayle drilled it on the up through extra cover. Styris was standing at cover, couldn't do a thing, just had his hands on his knees.

13.5

Franklin to Gayle, FOUR, Three in a row. Suddenly the floodgates are being prised open by the attacking Gayle. Similar delivery - coming in from outside off stump- and Gayle waited for it to arrive, opened the bat-face and thrashed it square, past point.

13.6

Franklin to Gayle, no run

Oram to Sarwan, no run, short in length, outside off stump and cut to point

14.3

Oram to Sarwan, no run, length-delivery on the middle stump line, dabbed to the on side.

Richie Edwards: "Skinner of the US is incorrect. It made no difference whether you won your crucial game or not. The venues were arranged according to seeding not position in the group. So Aus would always be A1 and would always have played at the same ground. If a minnow went through it would take the place of the seeded country that was knocked out."

Yep, you are right. My bad, I put that up without checking. Mea culpa.

14.4

Oram to Sarwan, no run

15.1

Franklin to Sarwan, 1 run, lands on a length, on the middle and off stump line, pushed towards mid-off and they rush across for a quick single

15.2

Franklin to Gayle, FOUR, Luckily the man moved this time. Full and outside off, Gayle biffed it straight, in the air, and Franklin ducked in time, else he would have been taken out.

15.3

16.1

Oram to Sarwan, no run, leans forward, pushes a length-delivery to mid-off

16.2

Oram to Sarwan, OUT, Stunner from McCullum. Full in length, outside off stump and Sarwan drives but the bat comes outside the line as the ball moves in a touch, clips the inside-edge and it flies to the left of McCullum who dives full stretch to take a beauty. I would have said, another YouTube moment but ICC is watching. Shhhhh...

RR Sarwan c †McCullum b Oram 19 (35m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 70.37

CH Gayle    39* (43b 8x4)      JEC Franklin    3-0-29-0

Scott Styris into the attack. How will Gayle react to this? Not as quick as the new-ball bowlers, Styris can prove nagging. Gayle will have to force the pace of his own bat - nobody is discounting that, mind you

17.5

Styris to Samuels, 1 run, Full delivery, only 66 mph, Samuels drives it down the ground and picks up a single. Almost as if he was driving a spinner there. Samuels can make batting look easy, sometimes too easy for his own comfort

End of over 18 (2 runs) West Indies 68/2 (RR: 3.77)

18.6

Oram to Samuels, FOUR, And now he takes off. Smooth and effective. Slightly outside off, Samuels simply leans into it and finds the gap at cover. Went whistling between cover and mid-off, racing away to the fence.

19.4

Styris to Samuels, no run

19.5

Styris to Samuels, no run, angled to third man for a single

19.6

A slow start, then a revival but then came the collapse. West Indies have been shot out for 177. It doesn't look like it's going to suffice. Join us in a while for the chase.

Kurt is disappointed. "I think the West Indies team should go back to school cricket and learn the basics all over again. Sarwan, Smith both got out to shots, only they themselves can explain as to why they played it...I am a West Indian fan all the way but sometimes these guys just make you wanna turn off your TV or switch the channel to football instead...come on train better, apply better....the Aussies can do why can't we....is it really that difficult to want something and go after it like hitting a ball in an expected manner as best as you should."

Kurt ... you are not alone. Faisal chimes in, "Dear Kurt, Now you know how we feel. Sincerely, Pakistan

And there must be mails coming in from Indian fans as well. And I notice that my inbox has a few mails from English fans as well. Same theme.

Gavin, meanwhile, is chuffed. "I think New Zealand bowled and fielded brilliantly and instead of stressing how poorly West Indies batted, it's about time New Zealand received the praise they deserve. I still believe this is New Zealand's best chance yet to win the world cup."

Moulee has a suggestion. "Now now come on.. Kurt & Faisal..you should be immune to this by now. Lemme buy y'all a bourbon... trust me it works."

Tim concurs with Gavin. " I have to agree with Gavin. It's now or never for NZ. As a South African I would love to see them win but I think our bowling won't take us the distance...too little diversity. I tip NZ or SL this year."

And how can we not have a Aussie voice. Bob screams out a warning. "We are just warming up." Ah!
