New Zealand in West Indies ODI Series - 3rd ODI

West Indies v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 88 runs

2.3

Rampaul to Guptill, FOUR, this time Guptill shimmies down, and while he doesn't get all of it, he gets four nonetheless. Aiming to go over mid-off, gets a thick edge that clears point with ease

New Zealand 11/0   MJ Guptill 4* (5b 1x4)   R Rampaul 1.3-0-5-0

3.3

Russell to Nicol, FOUR, these are not good signs for bowlers at all. This is short of a length, and he has swat-pulled this over mid-on. Oh batsmen are finding this pitch too trustworthy

New Zealand 19/0   RJ Nicol 13* (13b 1x4 1x6)   AD Russell 1.3-0-12-0

4.3

Rampaul to Guptill, FOUR, this is a little ridiculous. Short ball, outside off, and he has punched it down the ground for four. No fear of the bounce. A little misjudgement from Charles at mid-off who runs the other way to begin with, and is beaten on the left. No dive offered either

New Zealand 23/0   MJ Guptill 10* (11b 2x4)   R Rampaul 2.3-0-11-0

6.2

Rampaul to Flynn, FOUR, length ball, gives him a bit of space to drive, and he places it between mid-off and extra cover

New Zealand 29/1   DR Flynn 5* (6b 1x4)   R Rampaul 3.2-0-16-0

7.4

Russell to Flynn, FOUR, plum half-volley on off, and he has driven it down the ground and along the ground, between mid-off and Russell. Picked the slower ball early, and waited for it to arrive

New Zealand 36/1   DR Flynn 11* (12b 2x4)   AD Russell 3.4-0-18-1

8.5

Rampaul to Flynn, FOUR, too full now, and he push-drives this half-volley to the right of Rampaul and left of mid-off. This is looking ridiculously easy

New Zealand 48/1   DR Flynn 21* (17b 3x4 1x6)   R Rampaul 4.5-0-24-0

9.5

Bravo to Nicol, FOUR, that's a third slower ball out of three to the right-hand batsman, and this time Nicol is expecting it and glances it from in front of off to beat short fine leg

New Zealand 58/1   RJ Nicol 21* (24b 2x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 0.5-0-10-0

10.1

Narine to Nicol, FOUR, starts with an offbreak, Nicol was sweeping it regardless, and places it wide of deep square

New Zealand 63/1   RJ Nicol 26* (26b 3x4 1x6)   SP Narine 0.1-0-4-0

14.5

Narine to Williamson, FOUR, long hop with fine leg up, and he has pulled this between square leg and short fine

New Zealand 78/2   KS Williamson 5* (4b 1x4)   SP Narine 2.5-0-16-0

17.6

Bravo to Nicol, FOUR, slower ball, picked early, to full too, and swiped from well outside off and deposited one bounce into the midwicket fence

New Zealand 96/2   RJ Nicol 43* (50b 4x4 2x6)   DJ Bravo 5-0-31-1

34.2

Samuels to Watling, FOUR, short, wide, cut away for the first boundary since the 22nd over

New Zealand 146/5   BJ Watling 12* (28b 1x4)   MN Samuels 5.2-0-22-1

34.3

Samuels to Watling, FOUR, flighted outside off, and he goes inside-out, over extra cover. Always a nice shot to watch

New Zealand 150/5   BJ Watling 16* (29b 2x4)   MN Samuels 5.3-0-26-1

35.2

Rampaul to McCullum, FOUR, full toss outside off, 134ks, N mac gets a thick outside edge, and on this short field it's going to be four

New Zealand 156/5   NL McCullum 14* (27b 1x4)   R Rampaul 5.2-0-28-0

35.4

Rampaul to Watling, FOUR, short, wide, asking to be hit, and hit Watling does, fine of point, square of third man

New Zealand 161/5   BJ Watling 21* (32b 3x4)   R Rampaul 5.4-0-33-0

37.3

Rampaul to Watling, FOUR, Improvisation. Moves right across the stumps, gets really bottom-handed, and scoops this length ball over short fine leg. That takes some doing

New Zealand 169/5   BJ Watling 28* (37b 4x4)   R Rampaul 6.3-0-40-0

39.1

Rampaul to McCullum, FOUR, short, wide, cut away powerfully past point

New Zealand 181/5   NL McCullum 22* (38b 2x4)   R Rampaul 7.1-0-47-0

41.1

Bravo to McCullum, FOUR, length ball, moves across the line to work this behind square, and Charles dives over the ball at short fine leg

New Zealand 196/6   NL McCullum 30* (45b 3x4)   DJ Bravo 5.1-0-35-1

43.2

Bravo to Oram, FOUR, makes room to drill this length ball square of Russell at sweeper-cover. He didn't have too far to go, but this one flew off the bat

New Zealand 207/6   JDP Oram 6* (8b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 6.2-0-40-1

47.5

Russell to McCullum, FOUR, slower legcutter, a little too short, and Mac saw it early. Waited for it, and cut it behind point. First boundary since the 44th over

New Zealand 231/8   NL McCullum 48* (66b 4x4 1x6)   AD Russell 7.5-0-46-3

48.2

Rampaul to Southee, FOUR, short, doesn't rise, and Southee opens the front leg up to pull this between square leg and deep midwicket. Slower ball gone wrong

New Zealand 237/8   TG Southee 7* (5b 1x4)   R Rampaul 9.2-0-60-0
