New Zealand in West Indies ODI Series - 4th ODI

West Indies v New Zealand

West Indies won by 24 runs

0.1

Bracewell to Charles, no run, starts with an outswinger but a little too wide to bother Charles

0.2

Bracewell to Charles, no run, another outswinger. Charles moves across, covers the stumps, and then lets it go

0.3

Bracewell to Charles, no run, gets closer to the stumps now, and Charles defends just outside off

0.4

Bracewell to Charles, no run, full, on off, shaping away, defended towards mid-off

0.5

Bracewell to Charles, no run, length ball, on off, swinging away again, and defended to cover after moving across to cover the line

0.6

Bracewell to Charles, no run, a maiden to kick off the game. Slightly shorter than he has been so far, but still getting the ball to move away, and beats a lazyish slash

West Indies 0/0   DAJ Bracewell 1-1-0-0

2.1

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, short of a length, on off, defended off the back foot

2.2

Bracewell to Gayle, 2 runs, short of a length, gives him the width, Gayle leans back to cut it hard into the ground, and between point and cover-point. Despite a heavy outfield and the McCullums chasing behind this ball, they have got four. Brendon's right arm is in contact with the ball and the rope at the same time as he puts in a desperate dive. Oh hang on. They haven't called it four. I don't think this is the right call

2.3

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, no room now, and Gayle defends off the back foot

2.4

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, fuller, no off, pushed to mid-off

2.5

Bracewell to Gayle, FOUR, Bludgeoned away. Bracewell digs this in for a gentle bouncer, and Gayle opens up the front leg to smash it to midwicket. "Neither he nor the pitch has the pace to bowl this short," says Jeff Dujon

2.6

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, full, swinging in, half a shout for lbw, but this is headed down leg

West Indies 7/0   DAJ Bracewell 2-1-6-0

4.1

Bracewell to Charles, no run, length ball, angling in towards top of off, defended back to him

4.2

Bracewell to Charles, no run, slashes at one just wide of off and just short of a length. Beaten by the away movement

4.3

Bracewell to Charles, no run, short, wide, punched to cover, fumbled there, but Gayle hasn't taken a start, and they won't get a single off the misfield

4.4

Bracewell to Charles, no run, wide length ball, 132ks, driven hard, wristily, but on the half-volley and straight to mid-off

4.5

Bracewell to Charles, OUT, No half-volleys this time. If this was a shooting competition, Charles might even have scored a perfect 10. He has been bogged down, and is about to play out a second maiden over when he blasts this length ball down the ground. It's timed superbly, but straight to mid-off, and Williamson makes no mistake

J Charles c Williamson b Bracewell 1 (20m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 6.25

4.6

Bracewell to Smith, no run, a wicket-maiden for Bracewell as Smith flirts with this maiden. Short of a length, outside off, no intent from Smith, just the instinctive chase. Even if he had middled this, he wouldn't have got a run. Beaten

West Indies 17/1   DAJ Bracewell 3-2-6-1

14.1

Bracewell to Samuels, 1 run, nicely steered away to third man as this is pitched well outside off

14.2

Bracewell to Bravo, 1 run, Oh Bravo says, you have dropped it, no worries, here I'll try to get myself out again. Premeditated big pull. And this is only just short of a lenght, and he ends up skying it. Just about clears mid-on

14.3

Bracewell to Samuels, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone

14.4

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, nicely played. Short, outside off, Samuels plays his percentages, and goes with the upper-cut in front of square. Even a mis-hit would have gone safe here. But he has middle this for four even as both his feet are in air as he plays the shot

14.5

Bracewell to Samuels, no run, driven, but straight to short cover

14.6

Bracewell to Samuels, no run, short of a length, angling in, punched to short cover

16.1

Bracewell to Bravo, 1 run, short of a length, into the body, punched wide of mid-on for one

16.2

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, nicely played. This one gets big from just short of a length, but Samuels plays it late, Samuels place it with soft hands. Guides it wide of slip and wide of third man

16.3

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, too short this time, and this time Samuels shows some power as he punches it in front of square, wide of short cover. Lovely one-two from Samuels

16.4

Bracewell to Samuels, 1 run, that's a little wild. Trying to drag this short delivery from outside off, and gets a thick edge to third man

18.2

Bracewell to Pollard, no run, short of a length again, but well outside off, and left alone

18.3

18.4

West Indies 171/5   DAJ Bracewell 7-2-39-1

41.1

Bracewell to Pollard, 1 run, full, on off, drilled to long-on, threatening to burst through the hands of N Mac there, but he does well to keep it in

41.2

Bracewell to Sammy, no run, short of a length, dabbed to point, where B Mac is in from the circle to cut the single

43.1

Bracewell to Russell, 1 run, short of a length, run down to third man for one

43.2

Bracewell to Sammy, no run, short, wide, but cut away straight to point

43.3

Bracewell to Sammy, no run, length ball, Sammy's eye light up, but this one holds its line and beats the almighty swing of the bat

43.4

Bracewell to Sammy, 1 run, goes after another length delivery, gets a thick edge that drops just short of third man

43.5

Bracewell to Russell, 1 run, Dropped. Russell has hardly had his eye in, that's why he has mis-hit this pull. Looks like an easy enough chance at long-off, but while going back Southee tripsover, loses his footing, and the ball

43.6

Bracewell to Sammy, 1 run, length ball, outside off, driven to long-off for one
