Jacob Duffy803714.62315030
36.5 to VH Zol, Zol, the best batsman for India before the start of this match is gone. he comes down the track and fails to keep the square-drive down. Horne at point has to move to his left and take the simple catch. 139/4
Ed Nuttall812212.75391040
33.2 to P Chopra, captain Young's moment of fame is here, and he will be remembered for years to come. Chopra lofts it to what he thinks as a gap at wide mid-on. Young runs across and dives at the last moment with the left hand reaching out. The elbow grazes the ground and it is a miracle that he doesn't let go of the ball. Amazing catch!. 132/2
Matt Quinn1013623.60372030
48.1 to K Passi, two-in-two now as the 'twenty four runs of five balls' Passi lofts it to Neynens at long-on. He was in search of quick runs. 198/8
48.3 to Ravikant Singh, what a phase this is! The lower order collapse comes back to haunt India. they lose three wickets in four balls. Ravikant plays all over the fuller ball on the off stump, and misses. He turns back to see the stumps disturbed. What was a 225 plus total is slowly turning into a struggle for playing out the overs. 199/9
Connor Neynens803714.62263020
13.4 to UBT Chand, Neynens strikes! Chand has been fooled by a slower ball that is coming in. He plays down the wrong line and the ball hits the stumps. First strike for New Zealand. 51/1
Ish Sodhi1004314.30364110
35.5 to B Aparajith, full-toss on the off stump. Aparajith comes down the track and lofts it down the throat of Young at mid-on. Another set batsman goes. 138/3
Ben Horne602834.66151000
43.3 to AD Nath, good tossed up delivery, Nath comes down the track and just manages to play it straight into the hands of Horne. 169/5
45.5 to GH Vihari, flighted ball on the leg stump. Vihari comes down the track and plays it straight into the hands of Carter at cover. 183/6
47.6 to Harmeet Singh, fuller ball on the middle stump. No heroics from Harmeet this time around as he holes out to deep midwicket. Carter takes an easy catch. 198/7

Sandeep Sharma1023623.60413110
45.3 to IS Sodhi, short ball outside the off stump. Sodhi looks to pull it and gets a top edge to midwicket. Flickering hopes. 163/7
47.2 to CD Fletcher, fuller outside the off stump. Fletcher looks for a slog and gets a bottom edge. The ball crashes onto the stumps. 173/8
Kamal Passi1004814.80323070
9.5 to MSJ Davidson, first strike! Fuller ball outside the off stump. Davidson drives, and the bat turns in his hand as he has played the shot. The ball doesn't get the distance and ends up being an easy catch for Ravikant at mid-off. 29/1
Ravikant Singh1004924.90356010
16.3 to JF Carter, the fielders of India turning it on now. Short and wide outside the off stump. Carter cuts and the Akshdeep dives forward and takes the catch at point. 55/3
43.2 to C Neynens, and a yorker gets Neynens! On the off stump and he is looking to slog. Once Neynens didn't get any bat, there was only one place for the ball to hit- the off stump. 155/6
Harmeet Singh1023023.00370010
15.4 to BJ Horne, flighted ball outside the off stump. Horne looks to turn it and gets an outside edge to short third-man. Akshdeep dives forward and pulls off a good catch. 53/2
17.5 to WA Young, flatter, quicker, and on the off stump. Young defends and gets an outside edge to first slip. Aparajith moves to his left and pulls off a superb catch. four down now, New Zealand. 63/4
Baba Aparajith1012912.90351000
36.6 to RR O'Donnell, fuller ball on the middle stump. O'Donnell comes down the track and chips it back to the bowler. New Zealand's hopes are fast diminishing. 119/5
