New Zealand won by 88 runs
11 July 2012 (50-over match)

Russell to Nicol, SIX, That's Six No. 1. We are expecting many more today. Nicol shimmies down the track, takes this on the half-volley, from well outside off, and flicks it towards wide long-on. Not good signs for bowlers

New Zealand 7/0   RJ Nicol 7* (7b 1x6)   AD Russell 0.3-0-6-0

Russell to Flynn, SIX, that's No. 2. This ground promises some carnage. Short of a length, and he sets himself up, goes across the line, and pull-swipes it over midwicket for an easy six. Just before this delivery, Ian Bishop said he wouldn't want to bowl on this ground. who can argue?

New Zealand 42/1   DR Flynn 17* (14b 2x4 1x6)   AD Russell 4-0-24-1

Bravo to Nicol, SIX, It's slow all right, but it is a half-volley on the pads, and he has flicked it over long-on for the third six of the day

New Zealand 87/2   RJ Nicol 38* (41b 3x4 2x6)   DJ Bravo 3.2-0-23-1

Sammy to Nicol, SIX, That's fifty for Nicol, and Six No. 4 for the day. Length ball, on the pads, and flicked over long leg with ease

New Zealand 113/3   RJ Nicol 53* (58b 4x4 3x6)   DJG Sammy 1.5-0-13-0

Russell to Watling, SIX, Six No. 5. Inside-out, on the up. Top shot. Short of a length, on off, and he drives over long-off. High elbow for the pose too

New Zealand 191/5   BJ Watling 40* (46b 4x4 1x6)   AD Russell 5.2-0-36-1

Bravo to McCullum, SIX, Six No. 6 for the day. Tries the bouncer, McCullum clears the front leg, and hooks this over deep backward square

New Zealand 214/6   NL McCullum 37* (52b 3x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 6.4-0-47-1

Russell to Southee, SIX, short of a length, on the stumps, Southee just makes room and swings, and has connected it superbly for a flat six to cow corner

New Zealand 247/9   TG Southee 15* (10b 1x4 1x6)   AD Russell 8.5-0-55-4
