Sheldon Cottrell601923.16273010
2.2 to GH Worker, an early wicket for West Indies. Cottrell turns around, marches and salutes towards the dressing room. Not the best shot from Worker. It's short and a tad wide outside off, I reckon he picked the length early but just didn't choose the right shot. Worker tries a pull, instead of a cut, and the ball takes the under-edge onto the stumps. Playing that into the off side definitely the better option. 10/1
4.6 to NT Broom, 135 kph, Cottrell strikes again. Shortish and wide outside off, he looks to cut the ball through third man, but the ball isn't there, it's too close to his body. Gets a thick edge on his cut, which carries at neck height to Gayle at wide slip.. 26/2
Jason Holder622113.50242000
5.3 to C Munro, one more! New Zealand in big trouble here. It's short again, and wider. That much was enough for Munro to go through with a cut, but there is extra bounce in this surface. Holder's angle takes it wider outside off too. All he does is get a thick edge on his cut which flies to Gayle at neck height at wide slip, AGAIN!. 26/3
Nikita Miller502615.20101010
20.3 to TWM Latham, and Latham departs. Comes down, looking for something full to go over cover, but the ball is fired in, shortish. It skids on, beats the bat and Hope takes off the bails. Good defensive bowling this.. 99/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Matt Henry511823.60223000
0.6 to CH Gayle, in the air and snaffled by point. Gayle fails on returns. Looks to get the front foot out of the way and slap this over the in-field again. The ball is slanted across and takes the bottom part of the bat. Munro runs back from point and takes it well over his shoulder. 4/1
2.1 to KA Hope, huge shout for lbw. Umpire Chris Brown takes his time to raise his finger but does eventually. This seems a very dodgy call. Kyle Hope is looking for a flick but the ball slides into him from a length and pins him on the pad. That really seemed to be heading down leg. By some distance. But Brown thought otherwise. This is where the non-striker plays an essential role but Hope walked away after seeing no response from Walton. 7/3
Trent Boult501833.60171000
1.4 to SD Hope, hit straight to midwicket. This is a short ball, sitting up nicely for Hope who latches on to a pull. Has to fetch it from outside off but he manages brilliant contact. Just that he finds midwicket. Flayed straight into his hands. 6/2
3.2 to JN Mohammed, did someone say West Indies are world champions in T20? Leave that aside for now, for they are tottering at 8 for 4. A fullish length ball, Mohammed doesn't move his feet at all. Is caught stuck on the crease and the ball cuts in to beat the inside edge, hit the back pad and smash the stumps. Top delivery but equally a poor response from the batsman. 8/4
3.5 to CAK Walton, off-stump pegged back. What is happening here? Nine runs on the board, half the side gone. This is a scorching yorker. Got to feel for the batsman. This really was unplayable. Hits the blockhole and gets it to swing back in enough to take out the off-stump. Walton jams the bat down hurriedly but can't get anywhere underneath it. 3-0 seeming inevitable now. 9/5
Lockie Ferguson402406.00151040
Mitchell Santner501533.00160000
10.4 to R Powell, well-deserved wicket. Keeps floating it up enticingly slow and takes it away from the batsman. Powell loses patience and skips down the track. Tries to fetch a big heave from outside off and swings around as he loses shape. The ball in the meantime takes the leading edge that is taken by short third man. 57/6
12.5 to JO Holder, oh what a great catch! Neil Broom with an outstanding catch at the covers. Holder now goes for an ill-advised slog against the turn.Gets a leading edge off the bottom of the bat and Broom runs back a considerable distance from covers and gets right under it having judged it to perfection. 64/8
16.1 to SS Cottrell, holes out to long-off. No technique and holds no sort of shape as he tries to loft this fuller ball from outside off. Skews it in the air off the splice and it's a simple catch for Matt Henry. New Zealand one wicket away. 73/9
Todd Astle402416.00111100
11.5 to AR Nurse, wrong'un. Not picked at all. Nurse sees the fuller length and gets the front foot across a long way to drive. Gets it to rip through bat and pad, sneaks through the inside edge and flattens the stumps. 58/7
