Hamish Bennett4054313.5043400
10.4 to RG Sharma, gone, this is good bowling. Slower ball, knuckle ball, on the fuller side of a good length and fairly wide of off stump. Again he makes Rohit reach out, and he loses his shape while looking to hit over the top. I think he was looking to go over mid-off, but he's early on the shot, his bottom hand comes off the handle, and he ends up dragging a simple catch to long-on. 94/2
10.6 to S Dube, another. Two in three balls. Back of a length, slanting away from off stump. Slashes hard at it without moving his feet, and as a result he isn't close enough to the line to be able to place it where he wants. Slices it into the hands of third man. 96/3
18.5 to V Kohli, gone. The slower balls are really gripping today. This one's slightly wider outside off, and having failed to muscle the ball to the leg-side boundary off the last two balls, he looks to go off-side this time. Can't make himself enough room to really drive through the ball, and the ball pops up at catching height to Southee falling to his left at extra-cover. 160/5
Scott Kuggeleijn201005.0051000
Mitchell Santner403719.2552200
16.6 to SS Iyer, excellent change of pace, and Iyer departs. Hung it up invitingly on a leg-stump line, and Iyer goes hard at the inside-out drive. But the ball was slower than usual, and dropped a little shorter than the batsman expected. Through his shot early, carves through thin air, and drags his back foot out of the crease. Seifert completes a quick stumping. 142/4
Ish Sodhi402305.7582000
Colin de Grandhomme201316.5031000
8.6 to KL Rahul, taken at point! CdG's first over of the series and he's already a wicket-taker! It's all a little contrived, the batsman leaping so far outside leg stump that a back of a length ball on off stump becomes cuttable. But the problem is there is also a tiny bit of extra bounce, which means Rahul's intended dab for a single behind point ends up a simple catch to point.. 89/1

Shardul Thakur302127.00101200
5.4 to MJ Guptill, wicket off a long hop! New Zealand were soooo close to getting through this Powerplay and then going up a gear. Guptill sees a short and wide delivery. He knows he has to power to smash it away. And so he goes for the shot. A very powerful cut shot. Problem is, he's hit it straight to the only man India have deep on the off side. Should do better there, really should do better with the placement. 47/1
15.6 to C de Grandhomme, got him. That was full and angling in towards off stump, and the shot over extra-cover was on, but in the effort to make a bit of room, his front leg had stepped too far towards the leg side, causing his weight to go that way, and the bat to come down at an angle. Thick edge flies straight to the man at short third man. 137/4
Mohammed Shami403228.0092200
19.3 to KS Williamson, gone! Out of nowhere! Shami bangs in a short ball outside off stump. He has a gully in place, and there's a gap between that fielder and the keeper. Looks to dab it there, but doesn't get enough on it, and Rahul can fall to his right and snap up the edge near his right shoulder. 178/5
19.6 to LRPL Taylor, bowled him, this is going into a Super Over! What a finish. Full outside off, almost in the blockhole, around fiftth-stump in line. Taylor looks to slog into the leg side, and inside-edges into his stumps.. 179/6
Jasprit Bumrah4045011.2586200
Yuzvendra Chahal403619.0084100
10.4 to MJ Santner, through him! He has tried to play that flick shot off middle stump all day but every time he's missed it. Here, to add to his misery, the legbreak stays low enough to crash into his castle. 88/3
Ravindra Jadeja402315.75110200
6.2 to C Munro, easy as that! India keep piling dot-ball pressure on Munro. They make him go for these wild shots. Otherwise why would he charge out of his crease for the first ball he faces from Jadeja? This is brilliant, relentless bowling as a team. Even the spinner refuses him any room. Munro looks to make some of his own and slog a length ball on off stump out of the park, loses his shape entirely and Rahul does the rest.. 52/2
