It would have been interesting if any of Waller, Chigumbura or Masakadza held on to the chances offered to them by McCullum. It was not to be as the partnership between Guptill and McCullum sealed the match for New Zealand. Though Zimbabwe tried to force their way in at the end, the spinners let them down by bowling short and wide

Taylor would be a disappointed man as his centuries in consecutive matches did not see him on the winning side. He has a lot to figure out before the third ODI

Guptill is the Man of the match for his century

Please join us for the final ODI on Tuesday. Till then it's a good night from all of us here

Meth to Williamson, OUT

how unfortunate can a batsman get? It is one thing to be dismissed if the ball hits some part of the bowler and hits the stumps. It is quite another thing if the ball ricochets of your pad to the bowler and he whips the bails off. Expect to read about this dismissal in any kind of 'weird dismissal's list'. Unlucky Watling
