Ian Butler814215.25204000
9.4 to SR Tendulkar, edged and taken! A nothing shot from Tendulkar, looking to steer that away behind square on the off side but the length ball sits up a touch more than anticipated and he feathers a regulation edge through to McCullum, and thats immediate success for Butler on ODI comeback. 69/1
Jacob Oram201909.5022000
Daniel Vettori804215.25263200
18.2 to V Sehwag, stunning catch! Well held, Taylor! Sehwag skips down and absolutely smacks the ball hard and flat but Taylor dives to his left, superbly balanced, and plucks off a two-handed blinder at extra cover, you are not going to see much better than that in terms of reflex and composure. 121/2
Jesse Ryder302709.0012000
Grant Elliott2020110.0042100
34.6 to SK Raina, he's gone now, but what a contribution! Raina clears the front leg and gets underneath the ball, slogging it up into the evening sky and O'Brien settles underneath it on the off side. 241/4

Zaheer Khan611913.16241001
24.1 to IG Butler, disaster for the home team! Banged in short on middle, he tries to hook that behind square, gets the top-edge and Munaf at fine leg dives forward to complete an excellent catch, it was dying on him but he got under it nicely. 132/9
Praveen Kumar612824.66233020
1.5 to BB McCullum, gone! Praveen strikes in his first over, McCullum gets underneath the ball as it slides down the stumps, top-edging a poor attempt at a pull, its up into the evening sky a long time and settles in Harbhajan's palms down at deep fine leg, a massive wicket that. 0/1
7.4 to JD Ryder, poor shot, just throwing the bat at a hint of width and scooping it up miles into the air, Sehwag calls for it and pouches the skier with ease on the off side, India are all over New Zealand. 23/2
Munaf Patel201407.0062000
Yuvraj Singh604217.0093000
20.6 to JDP Oram, gone first ball!! A bizzare dismissal really, tossed up on middle, tries to sweep it square, gets the top edge that lobs up to Dhoni, who the flicks the ball onto the bails to find Oram short of his crease. There was plenty of bat involved in that one, so he's given out caught, no doubts there. 111/5
Yusuf Pathan402215.5081010
15.5 to LRPL Taylor, gone! Tossed up on middle and leg, gets down on one knee and tries to sweep it away behind square, gets the top edge and the ball lobs up to Tendulkar at short fine where it pouches it comfortably. India are chipping away here, and the asking rate has climbed to almost 9. 81/3
Harbhajan Singh402736.7582000
23.3 to MJ Guptill, tossed up on middle, goes for a slog sweep in an attempt to clear the ropes, gets the top-edge and Gambhir, running in from deep midwicket, takes a well-judged catch after a juggling it a couple of times. 132/6
23.4 to NT Broom, on a hat-trick now! Failed to pick the doosra, pitched on a good length outside off, Broom came down the track and played inside the line, expecting it to spin into him, he missed and Dhoni made no mistake. 132/7
23.6 to KD Mills, A dream over for Harbhajan! Thrown up on the off stump, lands on a good length, he pushes at it off the front foot, gets a thick edge and Sehwag at slip stretches well to his right to snap a sharp chance, all but over for New Zealand here, three in four balls. 132/8
