View dismissal RJ Nicol c Taylor b Meth 0 3 5 0 0 0.00
0.5 Zimbabwe strike in the first over! Full outside off and inviting the drive, Nicol eagerly chases it but is fooled by the late swing and gets a healthy edge which carries to the jubilant Zimbabwean skipper at first slip 1/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill b Chigumbura 70 105 66 9 0 106.06
24.4 cleaned him out! Chigumbura fired this in with a bit more shoulder behind it, it pitched on off and moved back in past the attempted drive while also keeping a bit low, clatters into the stumps and that's the big wicket 130/4
View dismissal BB McCullum*† lbw b Jarvis 3 4 3 0 0 100.00
1.2 well well well! Zimbabwe strike again, McCullum left one that pitched outside off but it nipped back sharply, given out immediately, he reviews it but it is clipping the top of the stumps, good decision and Baz is on his way 4/2
View dismissal KS Williamson c & b SW Masakadza 35 67 53 4 0 66.03
16.3 and against the run of play Zimbabwe strike! The drinks break works a treat for the visitors, Williamson walked down and across, tried to work to leg, got a leading edge and Shinig dived forward nicely as it was dying on him to snaffle it 92/3
View dismissal TWM Latham c †Taibu b Chigumbura 24 43 33 3 0 72.72
28.6 Elton gets his second wicket with a full ball outside off, lures Latham into the drive and he gets a healthy edge which carries low to Taibu's left 147/5
View dismissal DG Brownlie run out (Chakabva) 19 30 28 2 0 67.85
32.6 Chigumbura to NL McCullum, short outside off and rises on him a bit, gets on top of the bounce and plays it past point 166/5
33.1 H Masakadza to NL McCullum, wicket with the first ball of the spell but that was all the fielder's doing! Dabbed to Chakabva at backward point, who rushes in and flings an underarm throw at the keeper's end and hits direct with Brownlie's valiant dive in vain 166/6
View dismissal NL McCullum b SW Masakadza 30 65 42 2 0 71.42
44.3 another big hooey at a full ball on the stumps and he's not so lucky this time, the ball crashes into the base of the stumps and New Zealand are in danger of being bowled out with overs to spare 230/8
View dismissal AM Ellis b SW Masakadza 33 40 30 4 0 110.00
42.4 big wicket for Zimbabwe just as this pair were looking to make the jump from accumulation to acceleration, slower ball on off beat the attempted push and rattled the bails 223/7
DAJ Bracewell not out 8 28 15 0 0 53.33
View dismissal KD Mills b Jarvis 7 12 12 1 0 58.33
47.3 clean bowled, backs away and tries to smash it through the off side and has his stumps rearranged 241/9
View dismissal TG Southee lbw b SW Masakadza 3 6 4 0 0 75.00
48.3 goes for a big heave, misses, thuds into the pad on middle and given immediately, New Zealand bowled out 248/10

View dismissal S Matsikenyeri lbw b Mills 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
0.6 for the second time today a wicket falls in the opening over of the innings, this angled in to leg and he tried to whip it away but it moved away a touch and struck him on middle and leg, given out, thinks of a review but is told to forget it 3/1
View dismissal RW Chakabva c Nicol b Mills 2 23 12 0 0 16.66
6.1 Napier's ghosts loom portentiously over this match as Zimbabwe lose their third wicket inside the opening 10 overs, good length on off, moves away a touch, healthy edge provides some slip catching practice 15/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c Ellis b Nicol 58 87 68 8 1 85.29
25.3 Nicol has the last laugh though! Bishen Bedi used to clap whenever batsmen hit him for a boundary, knowing that he would get them when they tried to do it again. Here he skies this to long-off, where Ellis tumbles but takes it cleanly 97/5
View dismissal T Taibu c Williamson b Ellis 20 59 39 2 0 51.28
19.5 Taibu perishes looking to up the tempo, gave himself some room and tried to smash it over the covers, the length wasn't quite full enough and he skied it to the edge of the circle, where Kane takes a comfortable catch 67/4
View dismissal MN Waller lbw b Nicol 12 34 20 0 0 60.00
27.6 Zimbabwe slide further, this one was turning in from off to middle, hit on the pad, initially not given but New Zealand use a review and it is shown to be hitting the top of middle 110/6
View dismissal E Chigumbura c & b Bracewell 15 18 16 2 0 93.75
29.4 again times the drive well but this time he has hit it straight back to Bracewell, who holds it nicely 119/7
View dismissal KO Meth lbw b Nicol 10 47 26 1 0 38.46
39.2 three wickets for Nicol, Meth went down on bent knee for the sweep on middle and off, missed and was struck dead in front, going on to hit middle and leg halfway up 156/9
View dismissal SW Masakadza c Nicol b Mills 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
30.5 outside off on a good length, bit of bounce and away movement, Shinig tries to defend but gets a thick edge to provide Nicol with another easy catch 122/8
RW Price not out 26 41 35 5 0 74.28
View dismissal KM Jarvis st †BB McCullum b Nicol 2 7 5 0 0 40.00
41.1 Jarvis comes down and has a massive heave-ho at Nicol, gets nowhere near it and tries to slide the foot back over the line but Baz is quick as a flash to knock the bails off, New Zealand wrap up a comprehensive 90-run win 158/10
