New Zealand tour of United States of America and West Indies, 3rd ODI: West Indies v New Zealand at Basseterre, Jul 11, 2012
New Zealand won by 88 runs
11 July 2012 (50-over match)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
