ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd match, Group D
New Zealand won by 7 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)
Played at Kennington Oval, London (neutral venue)
6 June 2009 (20-over match)

Butler to Watson, OUT, gets a wicket straightaway, the change of pace does the trick, an offcutter bowled full outside off, Watson attempts to clear deep extra cover, the shot was on, but didn't get the distance, Taylor stood patiently and caught it with ease

RR Watson c Taylor b Butler 27 (9m 10b 6x4 0x6) SR: 270.00


Butler to Poonia, 2 runs, slightly short outside off, makes room and punches it over cover, wide of mid-off for a couple


Butler to Poonia, 1 run, well struck, leaps and crashes it towards cover where a fumble allows them a single


Butler to Coetzer, FOUR, but it makes no difference to him, short and wide, slashes hard, cuts it away powerfully wide of third man for a one-bounce four


Butler to Coetzer, 2 runs, dropped, The Scots are showing some spunk, length ball on middle, lofts it over mid-on, really high, Brendon McCullum runs back but fails to hold on, almost palms it off to the ropes but manages to drag it just back in, they still get two though


Butler to Coetzer, 2 runs, fullish on middle and leg, swings it away, not well timed though, just wide of deep midwicket for a couple more

Scotland 41/1   IG Butler 1-0-11-1

Butler to Coetzer, 1 run, full and wide, missed out on a length ball there, drives it crisply to deep cover, will rue the fact that he didn't find the gap


Butler to Poonia, 1 run, low full toss outside off, reaches for it and slaps it to mid-off, gave himself too much room there


Butler to Coetzer, SIX, It's Scotland's day, banged in short on middle, goes for the pull, came onto him too quickly but he won't mind it in hindight, takes the top edge and sails over the ropes over fine leg


Butler to Coetzer, OUT, gets the outside edge this time, not the best of deliveries, full and wide, I would have been tempted to dispatch that over deep cover, so was he, but it took the edge straight to McGlashan

KJ Coetzer c †McGlashan b Butler 33 (17m 15b 3x4 2x6) SR: 220.00


Butler to Stander, OUT, run out, full and wide, tries to drill it through the off side, misses, the non-striker sets off for the run, but McGlashan's under-arm throws finds the stumps

NS Poonia run out 27 (31m 15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 180.00


Butler to Smith, OUT, three wickets in three balls, a team hat-trick you could call it, full and straight on middle, tries to smash him past over, misses and the stumps are rattled

CJO Smith b Butler 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Scotland 89/4   IG Butler 2-0-19-3
