New Zealand in West Indies ODI Series - 4th ODI

West Indies v New Zealand

West Indies won by 24 runs

13.1

Oram to Samuels, 1 run, length ball, on off, slight holding of its line, guided behind square for one

13.2

Oram to Bravo, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone

13.3

Oram to Bravo, 2 runs, full, really full, a half-volley really, driven wide of extra cover, and the heavy outfield keeps it in

13.4

Oram to Bravo, no run, another delivery that kicks from just short of a length. Bravo keeps it down, though, as he defends it to point

13.5

Oram to Bravo, no run, length ball, on off, defended off the back foot

13.6

Oram to Bravo, no run, Dropped. A sitter by international standards. It's Taylor again, who might have injured his left shoulder again, which he originally injured while dropping a catch in the US. Just short of a length, outside off, holds its line, takes the edge as Bravo covers the angle, and it goes about knee high to Taylor's left at first slip. He spills it, has two more stabs at it, but can't keep it in. Comes up with the hand clutching the shoulder

West Indies 41/3   JDP Oram 1-0-3-0

15.1

Oram to Bravo, no run, length ball, on off, defended to leg

15.2

Oram to Bravo, no run, short of a length, outside off, a little extra bounce as he defends to cover

15.3

Oram to Bravo, no run, that's straight from a boxing match. Jabs at his throat from just short of a length, and Bravo's both feet are in the air, and the ball hits the top hand on the handle. Falls safe towards absent gully

15.4

Oram to Bravo, no run, length ball outside off, defended

15.5

Oram to Bravo, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, played with feet in the air again, placed wide of point for one

15.6

Oram to Samuels, no run, length ball outside off, he has left it alone... wait, not quite. Decides to have a late jab at it, and is beaten

West Indies 48/3   JDP Oram 2-0-4-0

17.1

Oram to Bravo, OUT, Bravo has succeeded in getting himself out. This is the second time he has tried it. He waits as they check the no-ball, but Oram's foot is well behind as he lands. Short of a length, but Bravo's mind is made up he is going to play that extravagant whip over midwicket that is trademark Bravo. However, the length is not there, and he ends up skying it over mid-on. Enough time for Boult to run back and take it over his shoulder. That ball was closer to a pulling length than driving length

DJ Bravo c Boult b Oram 18 (47m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.42

17.2

Oram to Samuels, no run, nearly another, but you have to give credit to Samuels's soft hands. Short of a length, holding its line, but edged short of the only slip

17.3

Oram to Samuels, no run, extra bounce again, from just short of a length, defended with the bottom hand off

17.4

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

17.5

Oram to Samuels, no run, short of a length, outside off, squared up as he defends it

17.6

Oram to Samuels, no run, defended with an open face, towards gully - a wicket-maiden for Oram. He is using his height superbly here

West Indies 59/4   JDP Oram 3-1-4-1

19.1

Oram to Samuels, no run, another spitting delivery as Samuels has to take his bottom hand off and the ball still hits the handle. Kicked from just short of a length

19.2

Oram to Samuels, no run, stays back to defend this short-of-a-length delivery outside off

19.3

Oram to Samuels, no run, slightly fuller, Samuels is back, and the ball hits the sticker on the bat as he defends

19.4

Oram to Samuels, no run, short of a length, angling in, tucking him up, defended

19.5

Oram to Samuels, 1 run, wider of the crease, angling in, nicely tucked away wide of midwicket for one

19.6

Oram to Pollard, no run, length ball outside off, Pollard well forward to defend

West Indies 62/4   JDP Oram 4-1-5-1

21.1

Oram to Samuels, 1 run, short of a length, steered over gully for one

21.2

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, drop and run again. This is going straight to mid-on, but Pollard's big strides make a mockery of this tight single

21.3

Oram to Samuels, 1 run, short, angling in, steered wide of gully this time

21.4

Oram to Pollard, no run, length ball, angling in, left alone

21.5

Oram to Pollard, no run, wide of the crease, short of a length, angling into the pads, pushed to square leg

21.6

Oram to Pollard, no run, wide of the crease again, and digs this time, and gets it to rise chest-high. However, it is wide outside off, and Pollard is not inconvenienced in staying away from this delivery

West Indies 69/4   JDP Oram 5-1-8-1

23.1

Oram to Pollard, no run, short of a length, outside off, defended to mid-off

23.2

Oram to Pollard, no run, length ball, angling in towards off, defended to mid-on

23.3

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, walks down the wicket, yorks himself up, digs this out to mid-on, and steals a single. Ridiculous how Pollard finishes this short singles without any trouble at all

23.4

Oram to Samuels, no run, short of a length, outside off, defended with an open face

23.5

Oram to Samuels, FOUR, slashed away, but safe. Goes wide of the crease, but bowls short, and Samuels goes after it. Not entirely in control of it, but wide enough of gully. Calculate shot again

23.6

Oram to Samuels, no run, short of a length, outside off, defended square on the off side

West Indies 86/4   JDP Oram 6-1-13-1

35.1

Oram to Pollard, FOUR, short of a length, swipes at the first ball, and connects well to swat it past square leg for four

35.2

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, full, flicked away, can't beat midwicket

35.3

Oram to Thomas, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, runs it down to third man for one

35.4

Oram to Pollard, no run, full and straight, and he plays across the line, and misses. The inside edge saves him, though

35.5

Oram to Pollard, FOUR, that doesn't matter to Pollard. He gets a length ball, stands tall, and swipes it between long-on and deep midwicket. Not a fielder moved

35.6

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, full, near yorker, gets a single to long-on

West Indies 140/5   JDP Oram 7-1-24-1

42.1

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, short of a length, on off, steals a single to point

42.2

Oram to Sammy, 1 run, and he pushes this wide of cover for a single

42.3

Oram to Pollard, 1 run, sees him make room, follows him with a yorker, which is dug out for a single

42.4

Oram to Sammy, 1 run, length ball, whipped away to long-on for one

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

42.6

Oram to Sammy, no run, length ball, on off, defended to cover

West Indies 202/7   JDP Oram 8-1-28-2

44.1

Oram to Sammy, 1 run, full and straight, drilled to long-off for one

44.2

Oram to Russell, 1 run, short to Russell. There seems to be some sort of plan to Russell to bowl short. Dabbed away for a single

44.3

Oram to Sammy, 1 wide, slower ball gone wrong, wide down leg

44.3

Oram to Sammy, 1 run, slower ball again, Sammy checks his big shot, takes a single to long-on

44.4

Oram to Russell, no run, yorker, on leg stump, can't do anything with it

44.5

Oram to Russell, 1 run, length ball, outside off, gets a single to point

44.6

Oram to Sammy, no run, misses out on a leg-side full toss, is hit on the pad

West Indies 212/7   JDP Oram 9-1-33-2

48.1

Oram to Russell, 1 run, full and straight, dug out for another single

48.2

Oram to Narine, 1 run, length ball outside off, he slogs, gets an edge, gets the single to third man

48.3

Oram to Russell, 1 wide, slower ball, called wide down the leg side, Oram says it has hit something on the way. Big Jake says he wants to review it, but of course you can use reviews only for dismissals. Seems to have come off the glove, and bounced in front of the keeper

48.3

Oram to Russell, FOUR, length ball, drilled down the ground, and Guptill, eager to keep them down to one, lets it slip through for four

48.4

Oram to Russell, OUT, drilled towards Guptill at long-on again, but this time in the air, and despite the swerve away from him, Guptill takes the catch. Had he missed that, it could have been worth 20 runs in the final equation

AD Russell c Guptill b Oram 29 (28m 16b 2x4 2x6) SR: 181.25

48.5

Oram to Best, 1 wide, another wide - 20 runs off wides now

48.5

Oram to Best, no run, o boy, an immaculate forward-defensive from Best, back to the bowler

48.6

Oram to Best, 1 run, steers this down to third man for a single

West Indies 260/9   JDP Oram 10-1-42-3
