New Zealand in West Indies ODI Series - 1st ODI

West Indies v New Zealand

West Indies won by 9 wickets (with 52 balls remaining) (D/L method)

1.1

Russell to Guptill, OUT, talk about immediate impact! length ball jags away and Guptill pokes at it outside off without moving his feet, gets the outside edge and through to Sammy at second slip, taken low and to his right, Guptill is gone for 1

MJ Guptill c Sammy b Russell 1 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

New Zealand 3/1   RJ Nicol 1* (1b)   AD Russell 0.1-0-1-1

7.2

Russell to Flynn, OUT, oh dear! just after that audacious shot, Flynn looks to crash a length ball through the covers, inside-edges on to the stumps, perhaps that ball moved in a touch and Flynn didn't adjust for that, his wait for an ODI half-century continues, that average does not make good reading, Russell gets his second wicket

DR Flynn b Russell 12 (28m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

New Zealand 30/2   RJ Nicol 13* (22b 2x4)   AD Russell 3.2-0-14-2

9.2

Russell to Nicol, OUT, another down for New Zealand, and another for Russell, Nicol so far has chosen which ball to hit judiciously, this time he charges down the track and though it is a short ball, he looks to power it towards midwicket, top edges towards deep square leg, the fielder awaits, and the fears about New Zealand's batting are being realised

RJ Nicol c Simmons b Russell 14 (43m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

New Zealand 33/3   KS Williamson 2* (8b)   AD Russell 4.2-0-14-3

14.4

Narine to Brownlie, OUT, and Brownlie fails the Narine test, he never looked like passing it, he looked to play that straighter one from the crease, he misses, struck on the pads in front of middle, doesn't take long for the umpire to lift the finger, New Zealand four down, this isn't looking good for them

DG Brownlie lbw b Narine 1 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.69

New Zealand 48/4   KS Williamson 15* (27b 1x4)   SP Narine 2.4-0-3-1

23.4

Sammy to Williamson, OUT, Sammy gets rid of his opposing number, New Zealand have lost their fifth, KW was looking to run that down to third man, opens the face to a gentle straight back of a length delivery, ends up feathering it through to the keeper, disappointing stroke that

KS Williamson c †Ramdin b Sammy 24 (67m 52b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

New Zealand 71/5   BJ Watling 13* (29b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 0.4-0-2-1

34.6

Rampaul to Oram, OUT, slightly slower from Rampaul, 123kph, Oram looking to send that into orbit, that sneaks under his bat, and past the back pad to crash into leg stump, end of a fighting stand

JDP Oram b Rampaul 32 (42m 39b 2x4 2x6) SR: 82.05

New Zealand 117/6   BJ Watling 26* (59b 2x4)   R Rampaul 7-0-29-1

44.2

Narine to Ellis, OUT, Narine strikes on his second delivery, once more Ellis moves a bit away from leg stump, not the dramatic step away but a more small one, it was an offspinner from Narine, Ellis looked to cut that, he misses and the ball hit the top of middle

AM Ellis b Narine 14 (44m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 51.85

New Zealand 161/7   BJ Watling 52* (88b 4x4)   SP Narine 8.2-2-20-2

45.6

Russell to Mills, OUT, and he takes his fourth off the final delivery of his quota, not the best of deliveries, it was full and sliding down the leg side, whipped towards short fine leg for a catch, a few yards either side of that fielder and that was four

KD Mills c Samuels b Russell 1 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

New Zealand 164/8   BJ Watling 54* (91b 4x4)   AD Russell 10-0-45-4

47.5

Rampaul to Watling, OUT, referral, a big appeal for lbw is upheld, Watling argues for a review again, that looked plumb and it is plumb, it was a length ball and he looked to thump that towards midwicket, he missed and was struck low on the pads in front of middle, it was the end of the innings, and only No. 11 to come, so Watling decided to punt on the review, doesn't work this time though, he's a goner, end of a important knock for Watling, with several other keepers looking for a place in the NZ side

BJ Watling lbw b Rampaul 60 (138m 98b 5x4 0x6) SR: 61.22

New Zealand 173/9   TG Southee 2* (4b)   R Rampaul 8.5-0-35-2
