Shane Bond1024304.30384020
Andre Adams9.414444.55376010
9.2 to CH Gayle, the first breakthrough! Gayle slashes at a shorter, wider ball angling further away outside off stump, he only manages to get a thick edge, flying to Fleming at slip, who gratefully accepts the catch not many inches being given away in this game throughout, just when one side starts to gain ascendancy, the other team has fought back. 34/1
11.2 to WW Hinds, drives to off...straight into the hands of Scott Styris at cover point. 42/3
13.3 to CL Hooper, short, hooks down Bond's throat at fine leg. 46/4
49.4 to M Dillon, tries hit that one out the park, plays over it and the timber gets rearranged. 221/10
Jacob Oram1022622.60442000
14.1 to S Chanderpaul, ball hits the pads and after some thought umpire Rudi Koertzen raises the finger in response to the appeal. 46/5
20.1 to RL Powell, beaten for pace on off stump. 80/6
Chris Cairns1021021.0023111
Daniel Vettori1003813.80291000
43.3 to RR Sarwan, a massive wicket for New Zealand! quicker ball, very full, goes straight through Sarwan who looks to come down to it, plays all over it and is cleaned up, he trudges off, and do the West Indies' chances trudge off with him? there are still a couple of able hitters left to come in and partner Jacobs, no slouch himself, but without Sarwan it is a big ask. 178/7
Nathan Astle401403.50131000
Scott Styris503116.20152110
44.6 to RD Jacobs, what a catch! that surely spells the end of West Indies' serious hopes now, the second big wicket, fullish ball outside off stump, tries to swing it away over midwicket, slices a big thick outside edge down towards third man, Oram races in, flings himself forward to his right and grabs it low to the ground, fantastic catch at a clutch time, and the New express just how much that one means as they celebrate. 191/8
