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)

Russell to Guptill, OUT, Given lbw. Guptill has a chat with Nicol, and decides against reviewing it. This one skids a little, and does him in for the pace a little. Short of a length, just outside off, and he is deep into the crease to try to punch it. The ball nips back in, and skids off and hits him on the knee roll in front of middle and leg. Hitting top of leg

MJ Guptill lbw b Russell 11 (20m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

New Zealand 24/1   RJ Nicol 13* (16b 1x4 1x6)   AD Russell 2.1-0-12-1

Bravo to Flynn, OUT, what a way to get out. This would have been called a wide had he not edged it. It's really wide outside off, and he has done well to reach it on the drive, but all he manages is an edge. He will be kicking himself for that. You don't get such flat wickets and small fields every day

DR Flynn c †Ramdin b Bravo 28 (38m 31b 3x4 1x6) SR: 90.32

New Zealand 71/2   RJ Nicol 29* (35b 3x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 2.3-0-12-1

Narine to Williamson, OUT, offbreak now, and is lazily dragged on. Length ball, outside off, and Williamson stays back to it, and also pushes at it away from the body. The inside edge hits him low on the pad, and rolls onto the stumps. That's a second wicket gifted today. And that's out of three

KS Williamson b Narine 9 (26m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

New Zealand 97/3   RJ Nicol 43* (50b 4x4 2x6)   SP Narine 4.3-0-18-1

Sammy to Latham, OUT, Sammy strikes. It's an interesting dismissal. C Gayle B Sammy. Gayle breaks into a little jig. As for Latham, if you are getting bullied by a Sammy bouncer, well... No disrespect to Sammy, pace like fire is not his virtue. This is dug in short, he goes back for the pull, is late into it, and top-edges it to midwicket

TWM Latham c Gayle b Sammy 12 (25m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 124/4   RJ Nicol 58* (66b 4x4 3x6)   DJG Sammy 3.1-0-17-1

Samuels to Nicol, OUT, Another soft dismissal, and Samuels is laughing himself silly here. Short of a length, just holds up a bit, and Nicol is early into the punch, lobbing it back to Samuels

RJ Nicol c & b Samuels 59 (113m 69b 4x4 3x6) SR: 85.50

New Zealand 125/5   BJ Watling 0* (3b)   MN Samuels 1.1-0-5-1

Russell to Watling, OUT, Too cute. Tries to follow up that lovely off drive with a scoop. Gets down on a knee, in front of off, the head falls away as he tries the dangerous shot, and he gets a bit too under it to lob an easy catch for Narine at short fine leg. It is the cutter that has done him in here

BJ Watling c Narine b Russell 40 (66m 47b 4x4 1x6) SR: 85.10

New Zealand 191/6   NL McCullum 25* (42b 2x4)   AD Russell 5.3-0-36-2

Narine to Oram, OUT, walks right past one. Almost as if he was blindfolded. Oram jumps out of the crease, Narine bowls a flat offbreak, and Oram is about a foot away from the line of it. Stumped by a mile. He didn;t even bother trying to make it back

JDP Oram st †Ramdin b Narine 7 (19m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

New Zealand 216/7   NL McCullum 38* (56b 3x4 1x6)   SP Narine 9.3-0-27-2

Russell to Mills, OUT, short of a length, outside off, Mills stands rooted and swings. Looking to go down the ground, gets too under it, and skies it for Gayle at cover

KD Mills c Gayle b Russell 2 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

New Zealand 219/8   NL McCullum 39* (57b 3x4 1x6)   AD Russell 6.4-0-39-3

Russell to McCullum, OUT, length ball, slower ball, 116ks, outside off, McCullum sees an opportunity to get under it, but is slightly too early into this, and goes only as far as deep midwicket. A fighting hand from McCullum but one that is not likely to be enough

NL McCullum c Bravo b Russell 50 (104m 70b 4x4 1x6) SR: 71.42

New Zealand 239/9   TG Southee 8* (8b 1x4)   AD Russell 8.1-0-47-4
