West Indies v New Zealand

West Indies won by 24 runs

1.1

Boult to Gayle, no run, starts with an awayswinger first up, begins just outside off, and left alone

1.2

Boult to Gayle, 1 run, a really good delivery, pitched on a length, on middle and leg, then swinging against the angle. He has to play at it, and is squared up. However, the the pace and bounce is not stingy enough, and the edge dies soon, and travels wide of second slip

1.3

Boult to Charles, no run, length ball outside off, driven straight to mid-off

1.4

Boult to Charles, no run, gets this to swing in from just outside off, defended back to him

1.5

Boult to Charles, no run, dangerous leave. Length ball, outside off, Charles moves across a little before shouldering arms. The ball holds its line, and passes about six inches to the left of the off stump

1.6

Boult to Charles, no run, short of a length, outside off, pushed to cover

West Indies 1/0   TA Boult 1-0-1-0

3.1

Boult to Charles, 1 run, another ball swinging in to him, the inside edge gets him off the mark

3.2

Boult to Gayle, no run, yorker, swinging in to the left-hand batsman this time

3.3

Boult to Gayle, 1 wide, a wide down the leg side now

3.3

Boult to Gayle, SIX, Boom. Length ball, into the pads, no swing, and effortlessly lofted down the ground over long-on. Six No. 1 today

3.4

Boult to Gayle, 2 runs, full, into the pads, dragged square onto the leg side, gets a couple square of long leg

3.5

Boult to Gayle, no run, Gayle is looking to come down the wicket, and yorks himself up with this full delivery on the pads

3.6

Boult to Gayle, no run, finally one that swings away, and Gayle doesn't go after it outside off

West Indies 17/0   TA Boult 2-0-11-0

5.1

Boult to Gayle, no run, full and straight, defended back to him

5.2

Boult to Gayle, no run, this one swings away, starts just outside off, and is left alone. Good carry even though this is bowled at 131ks. Collected in front of the face by Latham

5.3

Boult to Gayle, 1 wide, that starts a touch too wide, and swings away for Richard Illingworth to call it a wide

5.3

Boult to Gayle, 1 run, full, on off, angling in, bunted wide of mid-on for an easy single

5.4

Boult to Smith, no run, Huge shout. Did the bounce save him? Ross Taylot wanted to ask Boult if he wanted a review, but Boult was quickly back to his mark. Short of a length, straightening a little, hitting the knee roll. Immediate no from Illingworth. Replays show it pitching outside leg. Just about

5.5

Boult to Smith, no run, swiinging in towards off, defended to leg

5.6

Boult to Smith, no run, this one kicks at him, and his head goes back a little as he defends this in front of off

West Indies 19/1   TA Boult 3-0-13-0

7.1

Boult to Samuels, no run, Nearly another wicket. Swinging in again, and lobbed back down the ground, just wide of Boult. Williamson from mid-on tries to catch the non-striker backing up, and N McCullum coming in to take the throw dives into the stumps

7.2

Boult to Samuels, no run, full and swinging in, Samuels a little early into the shot again. And it lobs into the leg side again

7.3

Boult to Samuels, no run, and this time he angles it away outside off, and is left alone

7.4

Boult to Samuels, no run, swinging in a little but from too far outside off to make him play

7.5

Boult to Samuels, no run, short of a length, on off, then seams away, almost like a cutter. Beaten

7.6

Boult to Samuels, no run, the leg-side trap nearly works. Full, swinging in, middle and leg, Samuels has the instinctive flick at it. In the air she goes, just over the short midwicket, and just short of the regulation man. Another maiden over

West Indies 20/3   TA Boult 4-1-13-0

9.1

Boult to Samuels, 1 run, length ball, on off, seams away, Samuels does well to play it with soft hands and guide it past the lone slip

9.2

Boult to Bravo, no run, short, angling away, Bravo looks to cut, gets a bottom edge

9.3

Boult to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off, chest-high collection for Latham

9.4

Boult to Bravo, 1 wide, called wide outside off. Didn't seem that wide to me. That's extremely harsh. Bravo left it alone, but it passed well inside that white guide line

9.4

Boult to Bravo, 1 wide, another wide, and although this was wider than the previous one, I am not sure this should have been called either

9.4

Boult to Bravo, no run, fuller, on off, shaping back, defended

9.5

Boult to Bravo, 2 runs, the inswinger now, but too full and straight, and is clipped away square on the on side

11.3

Boult to Bravo, no run, length ball outside off, doesn't play at it

11.4

Boult to Bravo, 1 run, short of a length, wide, cut away with the typical Bravo flourish. Gets a single

11.5

Boult to Samuels, no run, definite moisture there as this one kicks off a length, and Samuels has to take the bottom hand off to keep this down

11.6

Boult to Samuels, 1 run, short of a length, middle and leg, worked away for an easy single

West Indies 37/3   TA Boult 6-1-22-0

West Indies 111/5   TA Boult 7-1-24-0

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

Boult to Pollard, no run, beats the inside edge on his bat with a delivery angled in. Hit in front of stumps but too high

31.5

Boult to Pollard, no run, short of a length, outside off, 136ks, left alone, collected in front of the face by Latham

31.6

Boult to Pollard, 2 leg byes, full, into the pads, angling too far, concedes too leg-byes, but adds to maidens tally

West Indies 114/5   TA Boult 8-2-24-0

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

Boult to Pollard, 1 wide, angled a bit too wide, and left alone

33.2

Boult to Pollard, 1 run, drops this lenght ball to wide of midwicket for a single

West Indies 126/5   TA Boult 9-2-32-0

46.1

Boult to Sammy, SIX, angling into the pads, short too, Sammy plays an effective little pick-up shot to help it over long leg

46.2

Boult to Sammy, SIX, dropped by Oram, back-to-back sixes for Sammy. It's a little harsh to call this a drop, but we have been ruined for the unspectacular by some extraordinary fielding nowadays. Full, hit flat and to the left of long-off, Oram makes ground, has both feet in the air when he makes contact with the ball, but the ball bursts through. Could never have been sure if he would have stayed inside

46.3

Boult to Sammy, 2 runs, full and straight, driven wide of long-on for two

46.4

Boult to Sammy, OUT, full again, driven wide of long-on for twohe has found long-on with this low full toss. Timed really well. It's that half-cock punch that he plays that travels miles. But this time he has failed to get any elevation, and has picked Guptill out at long-on

DJG Sammy c Guptill b Boult 26 (28m 22b 1x4 2x6) SR: 118.18

46.5

Boult to Narine, no run, length ball outside off, holds its line, beats the defensive bat
