TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.60, 98 Mins)132/5
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Martin Guptill, 5.6 ov), 2-68 (Colin Munro, 8.4 ov), 3-74 (Colin de Grandhomme, 10.2 ov), 4-81 (Kane Williamson, 12.3 ov), 5-125 (Ross Taylor, 19.4 ov)
5.6 to MJ Guptill, length ball dragged wider outside off, Guptill tries to drive this high over mid-off but gets more of a toe than middle of the bat and it's skied over Kohli on the ring, who shuffles a few steps right before taking a catch at chest height with fingers pointed to the sky and palms out, then roars with delight turning around to the huge Indian contingent while slamming the ball to the ground.. 48/1
19.4 to LRPL Taylor, speak of the devil, Rohit takes an adventurous catch at deep square leg! Cutter on fifth stump and Taylor struggles keeping his hands back trying to pull this to the leg side. Rohit shuffles left to take this catch tumbling backward about five meters inside the rope.. 125/5
8.4 to C Munro, back of a length angled across fourth stump, wants to drive this on the up going over the ring at extra cover, but instead it climbs off the splice and Kohli charges forward to take a stellar diving catch before popping up and heaving the ball in the air. 7/10 on difficulty because he didn't have much time to cover the distance but it was coming at a gentle pace and he made it look easy and graceful diving left to clutch this at knee height.. 68/2
10.2 to C de Grandhomme, good length ball on off, stops a touch in the wicket and de Grandhomme is through the shot early. Checks it back softly to Jadeja who takes this gently floating chance at head height.. 74/3
12.3 to KS Williamson, full and heading down leg, would've been a wide had Williamson not gone for the sweep but hammers this flat to deep square leg, can't get enough elevation to clear Chahal standing 12 meters in from the rope on the strange dimensions at Eden Park and he takes this simply at neck height. Williamson sighs in frustration.. 81/4

TOTAL17.3 Ov (RR: 7.71, 80 Mins)135/3
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Rohit Sharma, 0.6 ov), 2-39 (Virat Kohli, 5.2 ov), 3-125 (Shreyas Iyer, 16.3 ov)
0.6 to RG Sharma, fullish length way outside off on sixth stump and the swing from Southee finally produces a wicket. Rohit could have easily left this alone with a small target in place but he drives at this well away from his body with zero footwork and a thick edge flies to Taylor at waist height standing at that wide slip, more like an orthodox second slip. Simple catch.. 8/1
5.2 to V Kohli, strangled down the leg side! Leg stump half-volley, Kohli tries to tickle this through fine leg but comes too fine off the open face of the bat and Seifert dives left to pull off a straightforward take. Southee bowled far better balls that went unrewarded in his opening over but he won't mind this bit of good fortune.. 39/2
16.3 to SS Iyer, floated full and wide outside off, skies this drive high over long-off not able to quite reach this within his arc, Southee charges right and 25 yards coming in from the rope and takes a superb diving catch. 8/10 on difficulty because of the distance he had to cover but he made it look relatively easy. Tremendous effort with the match effectively over considering less than 10 runs left to the target for India.. 125/3
