  • Sunil Narine4-0-20-3

Dwayne Smith was the man, the substitute fielder in for Rampaul. We have a Super Over now, a tie is what we have for now. It had to come down to this. Otis Gibson's having a talk with Pollard and Gayle. New Zealand to bat now.

Samuels to Bracewell, 1 run, OUT, full toss and it's flicked towards deep square leg, it's Super Over folks, they pick a single and Bracewell is run out on the second run, a direct hit from the deep

DAJ Bracewell run out (sub [Smith]) 1 (13m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Super Over? We need to see. 2 in 1, and it's Bracewell on strike. The fielders have moved in a little to prevent the two.

Marlon pulls out of his run-up, saw Taylor make an initial movement

Taylor's brought it down to 3 off 2. Gayle, Sammy and Marlon have a discussion again. Third man is now inside the circle

Samuels to Taylor, SIX runs, plays the scoop and it goes all the way, it's not his favourite shot but he pulls it off superbly, full toss on the pads, bowled at 127kmph and he used the pace to scoop it over the fine-leg boundary for six, what a shot

9 off 3 needed

Samuels to Taylor, 1 wide, fires it quick but it's down the leg side, Ramdin keeps well and takes off the bails but Taylor's in, a wide

14 off the final over, is it too much? Are we going to have another Super Over? The loser of this match goes out of the competition. A conference of sorts out in the middle. Sammy, Samuels, Russell, Gayle are having a talk. Sammy has to decide between Samuels and Russell. He have the ball to Russell initially, but then decided it was Marlon who was going to bowl it. That quicker ball is something New Zealand will have to watch out for. Short fine in place

W
Narine to NL McCullum, OUT, Nathan holes out, Narine picks up his third, the pressure grows on New Zealand, he had to go for it and found deep midwicket, couldn't connect as well and got more height than distance

Narine to Oram, OUT, Narine gets him with the carrom ball, that one spun in and Oram simply didn't pick it. Lands on middle and turns towards leg, Oram plants his foot forward and is rapped on the pads, the decision the umpire had to make was whether that was missing leg. He didn't think so, Oram did, but what Oram thinks doesn't matter. He has to go
