TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.10)162/8
Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Gautam Gambhir, 1.6 ov), 2-32 (Virender Sehwag, 3.1 ov), 3-54 (Rohit Sharma, 5.2 ov), 4-56 (Yuvraj Singh, 6.2 ov), 5-61 (MS Dhoni, 7.5 ov), 6-82 (Yusuf Pathan, 9.4 ov), 7-101 (Irfan Pathan, 13.3 ov), 8-162 (Harbhajan Singh, 19.6 ov)
19.6 to Harbhajan Singh, bowled him, Harbhajan tries a cute paddle again but he's undone by an on-target yorker from Southee, middle stump is left lying on the ground. 162/8
1.6 to G Gambhir, Gambhir's gone, middle stump's on the ground, a bit short again from O'Brien, Gambhir was looking to clobber him over midwicket, the ball doesn't bounce as much as he expects and it hits the top of middle. 25/1
3.1 to V Sehwag, Sehwag's gone, O'Brien's on a hat-trick now, big wicket for New Zealand, Sehwag eyes the short square boundary at midwicket again, misses the ball and it crashes into legstump, O'Brien is over the moon and why not. 32/2
5.2 to RG Sharma, Rohit's gone, tries to play across the line, gets a leading edge which balloons in the air, Brendon McCullum calls for the catch, he has plenty of time to position himself to take a comfortable catch near gully. 54/3
7.5 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni's bowled! India are in trouble here, a hint of inward movement from a back of a length ball, Dhoni jumped and tried to defend but that kept lower than he expected and his offstump is rocked back. 61/5
6.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj's gone! another big blow, New Zealand have the edge now, a quicker arm ball from Vettori, Yuvraj goes for the sweep, misses and is rapped in front on middle. 56/4
9.4 to YK Pathan, Yusuf's goes, Jacob Oram does a repeat of Adam Voges' fantastic catch to get rid off Brendon McCullum in Sydney, it was wide outside off and fullish, Yusuf powered that to long-on, it rocketed towards the boundary but Oram manages to catch it just inside the boundary rope, he was going to go across, so he tossed the ball in the air, came back into the field of play, steadied himself and completed the ctach. 82/6
13.3 to IK Pathan, that's the end of Irfan, soft dismissal, Irfan opened the face of the bat to run it down to third man, gets too much off the ball and it flies at a nice, catchable height to Nathan McCullum at backward point. 101/7

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Jesse Ryder, 1.1 ov), 2-56 (Martin Guptill, 6.4 ov), 3-106 (Ross Taylor, 13.2 ov)
13.2 to LRPL Taylor, Taylor's bowled, he had walked across the stumps giving Zaheer a sight of the legstump, the bowler targets it and hits the base of legstump. 106/3
1.1 to JD Ryder, but not as great as Ishant's first ball, he gets Ryder lbw, that was on a length, Ryder tries to flick it off his pads, misses and is struck in front of leg and middle, Hawkeye says that was pitching outside leg, Ryder's unlucky there. 2/1
6.4 to MJ Guptill, Guptill's gone lbw, Harbhajan drops it a touch short, Guptill gets on the backfoot and tries to play across the line, he misses and the ball strikes his pad in front of middle and leg. 56/2
