Praveen Kumar612013.33283010
0.4 to MJ Guptill, and this one goes away from off and gets the edge, beautiful control from PK, making the ball dart around, Guptill had a nervous poke at it from the crease and Parthiv made the easiest of takes, India strike early. 0/1
Ashish Nehra503426.80197010
3.3 to BB McCullum, Nehra gets the big wicket! Brendon walked across his stumps and tried to work this length ball down to fine leg, missed and was hit flush in front, and the finger went up straight away, 150th wicket for Ashish in ODIs, the openers are gone, India on top at the moment. 14/2
5.4 to LRPL Taylor, and another one goes! Taylor went for the pull to a surprise short delivery that climbed high over him, and got it off the glove for Parthiv to take another easy catch, now Nehra has 150 wickets for India, he is shaking his head as he walks back, Ross. 28/3
Munaf Patel30903.00131000
Ravichandran Ashwin812433.00340100
18.4 to SB Styris, Ashwin gets one this time! Styris looked to belatedly sweep this fuller one into the leg side, missed the line and was hit bang in front of the stumps, the umpire had not doubt about that one, New Zealand are tottering now. 73/5
26.4 to KD Mills, another carrom ball, tossed up for the drive around off stump, Mills does but straight to Tiwary at extra cover, second one for Ashwin. 103/9
26.6 to TG Southee, it's all over for New Zealand, this one was turning in on leg stump, bounced a bit, Southee failed to keep it down, and Rohit at forward short leg took a sharp catch, the Indians are delighted. 103/10
Yuvraj Singh20522.5080000
17.5 to JM How, he's bowled 'em, it pitched on off stump, he tried to go back and work it on the leg side, it straightened and beat the waft to crash in to the off stump, Yuvraj strikes in his first over, he got in to a very awkward position in the end and was in the air as he played the shot. 71/4
19.4 to GD Elliott, The Kiwi Kollapse continues, it was the arm ball going straight on with the angle, Elliott pushed forward outside the line playing for the turn, and was hit on the pads, umpire Saheba raised his finger right away, Yuvi picks up another one. 74/6
Yusuf Pathan301123.66101000
23.1 to DL Vettori, Yusuf gets one now! it was fired in on leg stump from round the wicket, Dan pushed forward to cover the turn, but it spun across his bat, produced the edge and Yuvraj did the rest at slip, Yusuf is all smiles, New Zealand are in total disarray. 90/7
25.2 to NL McCullum, and another one falls! Nathan went for the sweep, and the ball went up in the air for Yuvi to take a dolly at slip, umpire Saheba thinks thats off the bat, but replays show it came off the forearm, Nathan is not impressed, nothing is going right for New Zealand. 98/8

Nathan McCullum612614.33263100
0.3 to G Gambhir, and he strikes third ball! it was too close to cut, and went straight on around off stump, but Gautam went for the shot nevertheless, and got an edge to Brendon, umpire Kettleborough thought long before slowly raising the finger, could New Zealand make something out of this?. 0/1
Daniel Vettori603015.00241110
