27.2

Southee to Pollard, no run, digs this in short, 134ks, over the top of the stumps, but Pollard does well to drop the wrists and sway out of its line

27.3

Southee to Pollard, 1 no ball, they have called this a no-ball for being the second bouncer in the over, although I didn't see the signal for one in the over. Must have missed it. That's a sharp bouncer, Pollard gets inside the line, ducks a little. And after his ducking this goes head high. In his normal stance, there is now way this was over the shoulder

27.3

31.1

Boult to Pollard, no run, appeal for a catch down the leg side, but that's more to make sure the umpire knows it has come off the batsman's person. It's the pad this time

31.2

Boult to Pollard, no run, Are they going to review it? No, New Zealand aren't. Short of a length, outside off, nips back in a little, and goes through the gap between bat and pad. There is a noise, but Illingworth rules not out. Replays prove him correct. Could have flicked the back thigh on the way through. Top decisions

31.3

Boult to Pollard, no run, angling away outside off, left alone

31.4

West Indies 116/5   KA Pollard 14* (41b)
33.1

Boult to Pollard, FOUR, Missile from Pollard. That looked like he was gone for all money as it left the bat. Flat hit, no height on it, and the long-on is back, but it is hit so fast that N McCullum doesn't have time to take the couple of steps to his right that would take him to the ball. Pollard's first boundary - would you believe it?

33.2

36.2

Nicol to Pollard, 1 leg bye, turning into the pads, helped around the corner

36.5

Nicol to Pollard, SIX, slog-swept into the breeze for a six. These boundaries are not big enough if he connects. He has taken this from outside off, and has hit pretty flat and over deep midwicket

36.6

Nicol to Pollard, 1 run, short, and he has pulled it along the ground to deep midwicket

West Indies 149/5   KA Pollard 39* (56b 3x4 1x6)

Southee to Pollard, no run, wide yorker again, this time Pollard plays at it, and hits it straight to point

Southee to Pollard, FOUR, goes for the wide yorker again, ends up bowling a full toss, which Pollard drags into the leg side for four, between square leg and midwicket

39.5

Southee to Pollard, FOUR, wide yorker gone wrong again. It;s a now a full wide delivery,and he has driven it past extra cover. Brings up a mature fifty for Pollard. One of his best efforts

42.5

Oram to Pollard, OUT, the only loose shot from Pollard perhaps. Well bowled too. Slower-ball bouncer, Pollard makes room, his head falls away as he swings at this, and gets a top edge that is taken comfortably at point. Important innings from Pollard. Mature one too

KA Pollard c BB McCullum b Oram 56 (111m 70b 5x4 1x6) SR: 80.00
