ICC World Twenty20 - 13th match, Group F

Ireland v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 83 runs

4.4

KJ O'Brien to BB McCullum, SIX, he has had enough of staying adjacent to the line and trying to hit through the off side. So, this time, he shuffles towards off and swings the full toss high over deep square leg.

New Zealand 50/0   BB McCullum 9* (11b 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 1.4-0-9-0

8.1

KJ O'Brien to Guptill, SIX, Guptill goes down town. It was the slower one, it appeared as if he was beaten a touch by the change of pace but he went through with the lofted hit, taking his bottom-hand off the handle, but connected well and the ball sailed over the straight boundary

New Zealand 76/1   MJ Guptill 10* (9b 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 3.1-0-20-0

11.2

Cusack to Styris, SIX, That's a Styris special. Full length delivery outside off and Styris slices the big hit over long-off. He stays adjacent to the line and carves it up and over

New Zealand 106/2   SB Styris 10* (8b 1x6)   AR Cusack 1.2-0-13-1

12.6

West to Guptill, SIX, charges down the track and lifts a flighted delivery over long-off

New Zealand 124/2   MJ Guptill 24* (19b 2x6)   RM West 2-0-16-0

14.5

West to Styris, SIX, charges down the track, West loses composure and serves a full toss and Styris swat-pulls it over wide midwicket boundary

New Zealand 139/2   SB Styris 30* (20b 2x6)   RM West 2.5-0-27-0

15.2

McCallan to Styris, SIX, Styris show is on. It was flatter and on the off and middle stump line, Styris went down on his knee to swing it high over deep square leg

New Zealand 148/2   SB Styris 38* (23b 3x6)   WK McCallan 3.2-0-27-1

16.5

Cusack to Oram, SIX, Smash. Cusack has been pushing it outside off, making Oram fetch it from there for his on-side hits. So this time, Oram stays still and drills it high over long-off.

New Zealand 168/3   JDP Oram 15* (6b 1x4 1x6)   AR Cusack 2.5-0-32-1

18.3

Cusack to Guptill, SIX, Whack. Huge hit over long-on. Simple technique. He cleared the front foot, picked the slower one and thrashed it high over the boundary

New Zealand 184/5   MJ Guptill 37* (29b 3x6)   AR Cusack 3.3-0-40-2

19.1

Johnston to Guptill, SIX, What a fine hit. It was the attempted yorker that ended up as a low full toss on the leg stump line, he took out the left leg from the line and lifted it over wide midwicket boundary

New Zealand 193/5   MJ Guptill 44* (31b 4x6)   DT Johnston 3.1-0-38-1
