Right then, the action winds up in Mumbai. Here is Liam Brickhill's bulletin. Do follow the commentary from Bangalore where Australia have recovered well after an indifferent start v Kenya. On behalf of Sriram Veera and the rest of the gang, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Ta.

Brendon McCullum is the MoM: "Happy to get the 100, the win gives us confidence and momentum. The first 7-8 overs had something in it, but then it was a really good pitch. Any ground is going to have something in it at 9 30 in the morning. I am pretty happy with the way today went. I thought the platform we set was good."

Taylor: "Brendon and Guptill gave us a good start. I had a bit of luck while batting. The bowlers complemented the batting well. Our strength is the lower-order hitting, and we try to set ourselves for a go. We have to wait a couple of days and check on Kyle Mills - he is a key part of the team."

Bagai: "Good show from Patel. Nice to get runs myself, but we lost the game in the first half of the crease. It was hot today, so got some cramps after keeping and batting, it got to me. We will look to get out on a high in Bangalore, on a true track against Australia."

NZ now lead the Group B table with 8 points out of five games. Whodathunk! They are almost definitely through to the quarters. In fact, they are through for sure.

Ryder to Hansra, no run, Hansra has ended unbeaten, Ryder hasn't delivered any of those ten no balls and NZ have won in slightly lesser convincing fashion than seemed possible at one stage.

Ben: "New Zealand need to bowl a minimum of 10 no balls for Canada to win"

Ryder to Khurram Chohan, OUT, Chohan's merry ways come to an end as Ryder keeps it slightly short of driving length and Chohan holes out to cover.

Ryder to Khurram Chohan, FOUR runs, Canada are ending with a sting here, Chohan lines up a full and slow ball on off stump, hanging back in the crease and going straight down the ground. He bisects long on and long off for four more.
