26,27,28,29,30 June 2014 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Roach to Rutherford, OUT, he chips it to mid-on! Roach tempts him to play on the up by pitching it up on middle and leg, he was looking for the on drive and it lobbed towards Chanderpaul who took it comfortably at mid-on

HD Rutherford c Chanderpaul b Roach 4 (18m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

New Zealand 17/1   TWM Latham 10* (13b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 2-0-4-1

Roach to Latham, OUT, no doubts about this one! Roach did well to pitch this in line with the stumps, the ball straightened, skidded through and struck him in front of the stumps, Latham was not quick enough to get his bat behind the line and an easy decision

TWM Latham lbw b Roach 14 (47m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

New Zealand 28/2   KS Williamson 7* (16b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 4.5-0-15-2

Benn to Williamson, OUT, the slip comes into play finally for Benn, reward for turn and bounce, Williamson was forced on the back foot to fend that off, he had to play at it, edge went to Bravo at first slip and he takes it easily

KS Williamson c Bravo b Benn 43 (110m 68b 7x4 0x6) SR: 63.23

New Zealand 102/3   LRPL Taylor 38* (59b 6x4)   SJ Benn 5.2-0-24-1

Roach to Taylor, OUT, Big Benn shows he can dive...again! Roach strikes again, this time he squares up Taylor with extra bounce, it was gaining on Taylor's midriff and he was forced to fend it off, lobbed up off the top of the bat and Benn had to move quickly to his right at gully, timed his dive to perfection and plucked it one-handed

LRPL Taylor c Benn b Roach 45 (97m 71b 7x4 0x6) SR: 63.38

New Zealand 114/4   BB McCullum 5* (8b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 8.4-0-24-3

Benn to McCullum, OUT, on of the more comical dismissals of the series surely! Benn's extra bounce has been a handful at times today, McCullum's choice of shot was strange to say the least, he was looking to fetch that from outside off and flick it to the leg side, bounced more and he got a top edge that swirled and was taken by first slip, it went so high up in the air that Bravo really had to wait for paint to dry before that settled on his palms

BB McCullum c Bravo b Benn 31 (51m 30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 103.33

New Zealand 168/5   JDS Neesham 24* (29b 5x4)   SJ Benn 11.1-0-48-2

Benn to Watling, OUT, this has been Benn's session! Benn didn't have to rely on bounce for this one, he tossed it up and was fuller, relied on turn and he drew Watling forward and the outside edge went off the shoulder of the bat and went low and slowly to Gayle at first slip

BJ Watling c Gayle b Benn 1 (13m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.14

New Zealand 172/6   JDS Neesham 27* (31b 5x4)   SJ Benn 12.5-0-52-3

Benn to Southee, OUT, fires that much quicker and strikes the base of the stumps, that was too quick for Southee who tried to dig it out but the ball squeezed through

TG Southee b Benn 6 (27m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

New Zealand 194/7   JDS Neesham 43* (50b 6x4 1x6)   SJ Benn 15.3-0-56-4

Shillingford to Neesham, OUT, Trouble at the bowler's end and West Indies aren't sure if Neesham was short of his crease or not, he gets forward and softly pushes the ball towards short cover, sets off, hesitates and then continues with the run, Brathwaite runs from point and picks up and fires the throw to Shillingford who breaks the stumps, Neesham is inches short

JDS Neesham run out 78 (136m 91b 10x4 1x6) SR: 85.71

New Zealand 258/8   MD Craig 29* (63b 4x4)   S Shillingford 11.5-0-44-0

Roach to Wagner, OUT, caught down the leg side and Wagner walks, it wasn't exactly his best delivery, straying down leg from round the wicket, Wagner was looking to tickle it to fine leg but got an edge and Ramdin dives to his right, Wagner's frustrated

N Wagner c †Ramdin b Roach 2 (34m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.69

New Zealand 277/9   MD Craig 43* (84b 4x4 1x6)   KAJ Roach 15.2-1-55-4

Benn to Boult, OUT, it's Benn who picks up the five-for! He tosses it up and invites Boult to give the charge, beaten in flight and it was a straightforward stumping, no need to refer that

TA Boult st †Ramdin b Benn 12 (20m 21b 1x4 1x6) SR: 57.14

New Zealand 293/10   MD Craig 46* (93b 4x4 1x6)   SJ Benn 26.2-1-93-5
