Angelo Mathews301715.66103000
4.1 to AJ Redmond, another slower ball, another man gone! Short and wide outside off, has ages to decide where to hit it, flat-batted powerfully, but ended up hitting it straight towards Malinga at mid-on, and like Bob Willis would say, Malinga made no mistake. 27/2
Nuwan Kulasekara302217.3371100
3.3 to BB McCullum, first international wicket on the US soil! McCullum looks to make room and go over extra cover, but is down in by the slowness of the pitch and ends up hitting towards mid-off, where Mathews takes a superb catch diving forward. 25/1
Lasith Malinga402516.25112020
19.2 to NL McCullum, slower bouncer, it's near impossible to time those on this pitch, and he holes out to deep square leg. 113/7
Suraj Randiv201216.0051000
8.6 to RJ Nicol, played on. He has had enough of this slow and low pitch, finally plays the unwise shot, looking to punch this one into the off side, and not for the first time he gets an inside edge. 51/3
Thisara Perera402506.2571010
Ajantha Mendis401824.5080000
12.5 to SB Styris, this was a long way coming, looks for the huge sweep shot, Mendis holds the ball back, a googly, and furthermore the low bounce betas him too. leg stump gone. 71/4
16.2 to MJ Guptill, what do you do Jack? The pitch is low and slow, and it's a T20 and run-rate is crucial. So he gives Mendis the charge, creates enough room to free his arms, reads the length and line right. But. But. But the ball hardly leaves the ground upon pitching. Poor guy is bowled. 94/6

Kyle Mills401724.25151010
0.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, gone! New Zealand have made a good start to the defence. Tame dismissal, though, as he opens the face on this one outside off. There is slight holding of the line, and it's enough to take the outside edge. 0/1
4.1 to TM Dilshan, Mills lends support to my plea. Slower ball, offcutter, Dilshan heaves way too early, and drags it onto the stumps. A battle of attrition, is this game. 20/2
Andy McKay3.402025.45143001
17.4 to S Randiv, edged and taken! Randiv charges at him, makes room, looks to go over mid-off, and gets a toe end and McCullum catches it to his right. 85/8
19.4 to BAW Mendis, all over now. Full and straight, Mendis swings, misses, and McKay uproots the off stump. 92/10
Tim Southee301003.3390010
Nathan McCullum201909.5031110
Daniel Vettori401112.75130000
9.3 to KC Sangakkara, long hop, pulled away nicely... and gone! He has picked out deep square leg. Not much more to said about this wicket. 48/3
Scott Styris301033.33100000
12.3 to AD Mathews, slower offcutter, and Styris strikes! Mathews looks to launch it out of the ground, and is early into the shot and holes out to long-on, where Oram is filling in for Guptill. 62/4
12.4 to CK Kapugedera, Styris's lethal slower balls into the act. It's a rank long hop, but is made even slower by the pitch, and what's more it stays low too. Kapugedera pulls and holes out to deep square leg. 62/5
14.5 to NLTC Perera, and Styris consumes another! Perera goes for the big hit down the ground, no pace to work with again, and the toe end of the bat carries as far as long-off. Styris, my friend, is unplayable in limited-overs cricket on such pitches. 69/6
