  • That ends yet another series. India have emerged victorious but not without a scare from the Kiwis. Who would have thought that after the demolition of the Aussies? But the fun is not over yet. In fact, it promises to get even better as the T20Is come up to add spice to the tour. It is a 3-match series and that begins on Wednesday, 1st November, 2017 at 1900 local (1330 GMT) at the Feroze Shah Kotla in Delhi. Do join us for that. Before the game though, there is some cricket being played in Zimbabwe where the home side is doing well against West Indies after a poor start in the second Test. We take your leave for now. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • The Indian captain gets the Man Of The Series Trophy in his hand and now it is time for the big one - the Series for the team. The entire unit gets together for the photograph and haven't they made a habit? It is a good one for the team. That winning feeling.
  • VIRAT KOHLI is the MAN OF THE SERIES. Says that it was a pretty close game and credits New Zealand for fighting hard and forcing India to win the series. Congratulates them for a great fight and bringing out the best in his side. Says that while fielding in such tense moments, it is difficult to control one's emotions but he realizes that his bowlers know their stuff pretty well. Admits that the dew did help the ball come onto the bat nicely in the second innings. In the first, it was nice to bat in the first 35 overs but then the pitch slowed down tremendously after that and his side fell 15-20 runs short. Is happy with this win as this was like a knockout game which will help in tournament finals later on. Is happy with the Man Of The Series award as it gives a good feeling to win anyways but if you contribute to the same, the feeling just gets better.
  • ROHIT SHARMA has been named the Man Of The Match. Says that it feels good when your team wins and you contribute. Is happy with the way India played in the series. Stresses that today was the perfect game as the home side had to be at its best throughout. Adds that they never took New Zealand lightly as they are a terrific unit in this format. Thanks the guys who helped him with how his head position has been in this series and that helped him a lot. Credits his bowlers for sticking to the plans in spite of the dew. On the celebration after the century, he plays it down, saying that every hundred is special. Says that he was trying to do certain things which came out pretty well and thanks Sanjay Bangar for his inputs.
  • New Zealand skipper, KANE WILLIAMSON says that it was a fantastic series. Admits that Kohli and co. were the better team eventually. Stresses that whenever you come to India, you have to be at your best. Is frustrated with the team not getting over the line today but sees plenty of positive signs in his outfit. Feels that the surfaces were good in all three games and reckons that looking back, his side missed small moments which eventually did not help. Praises Tom Latham for getting into the new role effortlessly and also has a word for Nicholls and Taylor. On his bowlers, he is proud of them to have done well in such conditions. On the question of going in with 2 spinners, he says that one needs to look at the team balance and composition and the decision is not that easy.
  • Just a heads up... THAT WAS NOT THE PRESENTATION. It is about to begin now.
  • TOM LATHAM says that it has been a great experience to bat in the middle order. Stresses that he has been part of a great series but unfortunately, his team could not cross the line. Feels that coming over here and sticking to the game is really difficult but his side gave its best in this series. Praises the Indian bowlers for bowling superbly at the death. Says the openers did well for New Zealand tonight but they probably left too much for the lower order to do in the end.
  • YUZVENDRA CHAHAL says that his intention was to mix his pace as the ball was spinning more when bowled slower through the air. Also, he was looking to make the left-handed batsman drive.
  • JASPRIT BUMRAH says that he mostly tries to keep his head calm. Does not want to try too many things and only focuses on the execution. On the run out of Latham, he says that probably he should have run to the stumps but he thought that since Latham was beside him, it is better to throw. Says that he does not think about what people think about him as that is just added pressure. On his batsman-observation, he says that most of the times he watches the batsman till the last moment and if he moves across, he changes his delivery accordingly. Feels sorry for Bhuvneshwar Kumar for his off day in this game and says that cricket is a great leveller. Last game Bhuvi did well but not so tonight. Admits that it was difficult to grip the ball due to the dew. Praises Chahal as he kept Nicholls quiet.
  • Not the best of nights for the Indian bowlers but this is why it is a team game. Bumrah was brilliant at the start and the end, finishing with 3/47 in his 10 overs while Chahal earned 2/47 in his 10. Axar and Jadhav went for 94 in 15 overs combined without a wicket while Bhuvi had a forgettable outing - 1/92 in his 10. Who is your Man Of The Match? Rohit? Chahal? Bumrah? Stay tuned for the presentation...
  • New Zealand were now favourites. But India came back and how. The ball was thrown to Bhuvneshwar Kumar who had gone for 77 in his 8 overs. Seemed like it was not his night. But he bowled an exceptional 47th over, getting rid of Nicholls and breaking the 59-run stand which had come up in just 40 balls. Bumrah then took over from there and the Kiwis struggled facing the yorkers at the death and ended up 6 short.
  • Now, just when one expected India to finish this off after Taylor's wicket, the Kiwis had a surprise package in Henry Nicholls. Not that he cannot bat, but his cameo of 37 from 24 balls helped Latham play his own game. All of a sudden. 35 were needed from 24 balls as Bumrah went for 15 in the 46th. India were tensed.
  • Munro's wicket was the time when India seized the moment. They got rid of Williamson in quick succession and kept bowling dot balls. As a result, the 79-run stand between Taylor and Latham, albeit kept the wicket-flow in check, failed to put pressure as such on the bowling side. It took 69 balls and just when it seemed like the batsmen were upping the ante, Taylor departed.
  • Having scored 337, India would have been confident but they would have also felt that they missed out on 15-20 runs with the bat towards the end. New Zealand started the chase confidently, especially Munro, who teed off on the very first ball he faced. Guptill fell cheaply but the 109-run stand between Munro and Williamson kept the visitors in the hunt.
  • Truly blessed are we that the term humdinger gets repeated time and again. Till the last over, don't think anyone could have confidently said who will win. In a day of increasing number of one-sided games, this one has just revived the interest in the sport. Definitely mine.
  • 49.6FOUR! A boundary to finish the game but INDIA WIN BY 6 RUNS and take the series 2-1. Full and outside off, Southee swings hard but gets an outside edge which flies over short third man to the boundary. The fielders are not bothered. All they care is that their team has won. End of a magnificent game of cricket. Thank you, players.
  • 49.5The game is India's. Unless Bumrah bowls extras. Full and outside off, de Grandhomme looks to go over the top but can only hit it down to long off for a single. 11 needed off the final ball...
  • TIM SOUTHEE walks in at number 9, with New Zealand needing 2 sixes in succession to win the game.
  • 49.4OUT! The ball is legal and India have another wicket! A high full toss, on middle, Santner heaves this miles in the air towards mid-wicket. He gets more height than distance and Shikhar Dhawan takes it calmly. The umpires check for the no ball. Replays show that the front foot is fine while the height of the ball is fine too. Santner has to walk back.
  • A catch has been taken! But is it a no ball?
  • 49.3A full toss down the leg side, Santner flicks it towards fine leg and comes back for the second. 12 needed from 3 balls.
  • 49.2Full and outside off, pushed down the ground to long off for just a single! 14 from 4 now. Seems like New Zealand have blown it away towards the end.
  • 49.1Dot ball! A yorker outside off, de Grandhomme can only jab it back to the bowler. 15 needed from 5 balls.
  • 15 to get. Bumrah the bowler. Whom do you put your money on? For us, it is the man who has the ball in his hand.
  • 48.6Should that have been a wide? Full and outside off, Santner swings hard but misses. The ball goes past the wide guideline but the umpire is calm. Touch and go. Bhuvi has done his job. 77 in the first 8 overs. 15 in the last 2. 323/6
  • 48.5Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for a run.
  • 48.4A full toss outside off, de Grandhomme swings hard but misses. A dot!
  • 48.3Full and outside off, chipped over covers but it does not carry to the man in the deep. Just a single.
  • 48.3WIDE! Pressure on the bowler. Bhuvi goes for the slower ball but delivers it miles outside off, left alone.
  • 48.2SIX! Goes all the way! A full toss on middle, Santner swings this over the bowler's head. Long on is a few yards inside the boundary and the ball just goes over him! Had he been at the ropes, it would have been a catch. 18 more needed from 10 balls now!
  • 48.1Full and outside off, lofted down to long on who has to run a bit to his left. Not the best bit of running by the batsmen, just a single taken.
  • 47.6Full and on middle, bunted down the ground. The ball hits the non-striker's bat and deflects wide of long on. De Grandhomme shows good sportsmanship and does not take the second. But should he have run in the first place? 5 runs and a wicket from the over. 313/6
  • MITCHELL SANTNER walks in at number 8, replacing Latham.
  • 47.5OUT! Is that the game for India? Massive moment. Full and outside off, de Grandhomme looks to flick but misses. He is not sure where the ball is but Latham is halfway down the track, looking for the bye. He has to turn back as de Grandhomme is searching for the ball. Dhoni calmly throws the ball to Bumrah who runs forward towards the stumps a bit and then throws the ball. Bull's eye! Latham furiously hits the ground with his bat. He is applauded from the dressing room. What a knock again. But this time his team might fall short. 26 needed from 13 balls now.
  • 47.4NOT OUT. Pitched outside leg. It always looked so even to the naked eye but one gets the feeling that Kohli took it just to get some time in the game. Fuller in length, Latham looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. The Indians go up in an appeal while the batsmen take a single. The umpire is unmoved and Kohli goes for the review. Replays show the pitching to be outside leg and a leg bye is signalled.
  • LBW shout! Turned down. The Indians are confident and want this reviewed...
  • 47.4WIDE. A pretty late call. Latham gets down to paddle and Bumrah bowls it outside leg. Latham misses and the umpire initially does not signal anything. Then he stretches his arms. Should that have been wided? This is harsh on the bowler.
  • 47.3Works it down the leg side for a run.
  • 47.2Full and around off, de Grandhomme looks to flick but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. The ball rolls towards the bowler and Colin wants the single but is sent back in time.
  • 47.1Full toss outside off, steered straight to Bhuvneshwar Kumar at short third man. They go for the quick single and make it as Bhuvi misses his shy at the striker's end. 29 needed from 17 now.
  • 46.6Full on middle, clipped through mid-wicket for a well-run couple. Excellent over from Bhuvi - 5 runs with a wicket. 308/5
  • COLIN DE GRANDHOMME walks in at number 7, replacing Nicholls.
  • 46.5OUT! Bowled! The hushed crowd finds its voice again! Who cares about the past when you are doing well in the present? Bhuvi might have gone for 77 in his previous 8 overs but right now, his focus is only to try and bowl as accurately as possible in these last few overs. He does not have too many runs to play with and has been excellent in this over with this lengths. This is pretty full, around the legs, Nicholls looks to flick but misses the ball completely. The ball shatters the leg stump and the bails illuminate! End of a 59-run stand. Nicholls departs for a very useful 37 from 24 balls. The momentum swings towards India again. NEW ZEALAND NEED 32 FROM 19 BALLS.
  • 46.4A full toss on middle, bunted down the ground. The batsmen take the single, think about the second but Virat Kohli charges to the ball from long off like a rocket and fires in a terrific throw at the keeper's end, restricting the batsmen to just a single.
  • 46.3Full and wide outside off, slower in pace, 121 kph, Nicholls reaches out to drive but toe ends it to long off. Just a run.
  • 46.2Goes for the yorker, gets it really full outside leg, all Latham can do is flick it to fine leg for a single.
  • 46.1The batsman gets an inside edge and the ball hits him on the pads. Dot ball.
  • BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR is back on now. Has gone for 77 in his 8 overs so far. Can he make amends by bowling well at the death?
  • 45.6SIX! Off the edge! After a terrific first 4 balls, the last 2 have spoilt the over. Not much a mistake by Bumrah, he spots Nicholls getting across his stumps for the paddle and bowls it in line of the sticks. Nicholls continues with his execution and is comprehensively beaten. But Lady Luck helps him by taking the ball off the top edge directly behind over the ropes. 15 from the over, 300 UP FOR NEW ZEALAND! 35 needed from 24 balls now. 303/4
  • 45.5FOUR! 50-run stand is up in 34 balls! A short ball on middle, Nicholls pulls it behind square leg. Shikhar Dhawan gives it a good chase from fine leg to his right but cannot pull the ball back via his outstretched right hand.
  • 45.4Full toss on middle, Henry chips it over the bowler down to long on for a well-run couple.
  • Third man and backward point are up now. Mid off drops back.
  • 45.3Pushes this down to long on for a run.
  • Backward point is dropping back. Third man comes in. Latham plays that late cut pretty well, so the field has been adjusted accordingly.
  • 45.2Full and outside off, Nicholls gets down to paddle but the bounce does him in. The ball hits his hand and goes towards point. Runs signalled as the batsmen jog a single.
  • 45.1Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for a single. 49 needed from 29 balls now.
  • JASPRIT BUMRAH is back on. Here is the game. His three overs are the key. If he does well, India should win. Else...
  • 44.6On middle, pushed down to long on for one more. Terrific finish from Chahal. He has figures of 10-0-47-2 for the night. 288/4
  • 44.5Another sweep from wide outside off, this time through mid on for a single again.
  • 44.4Fuller and wider outside off, nicely tossed up, swept through mid-wicket for one more.
  • 44.3Full toss on off, drag-swept through mid-wicket for just a run.
  • 44.2Full and outside off, driven straight to short extra cover.
  • 44.1Short and outside off, thumped to sweeper cover for a single.
  • 43.6FOUR! Terrific shot! For the third over in a row, the last ball has produced a boundary. Short and outside off, Nicholls rocks back and cuts it hard through point for a boundary! 11 from the over, 35 off the last 3! 283/4
  • 43.5Pushes this to long on for a run. 59 more needed from 37 balls now.
  • 43.4FOUR! Brilliant timing. On a length on middle, Latham just pushes this uppishly through mid-wicket. Finds the gap and bisects deep mid-wicket and long on!
  • 43.3Landed in line of the stumps, watchfully defended.
  • 43.2Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 43.1Pushes this to long on for a single.
  • HARDIK PANDYA is back on now.
  • 42.6FOUR! Down the leg side, Nicholls gets down and sweeps it over short fine leg for a boundary! 12 from the over, 24 off the last 2! 66 needed from 42 balls now. 272/4
  • 42.5Full and down the leg side, swept to deep fine leg for a single.
  • 42.5WIDE. Harsh call. Slowly looped up, full and outside off, wide as well, Latham looks to play the reverse sweep but the ball spins in and beats him. Dhoni is not amused with that call.
  • 42.4FOUR! Full on middle, Latham gets down and sweeps this powerfully, perfectly bisecting deep square leg and deep mid-wicket! Brings up his 9th ODI Fifty, third against India!
  • 42.3Full and outside off, Latham looks to reverse sweep but misses.
  • 42.2Full and outside off, pretty wide, Latham reaches out to sweep but the ball goes off the back of the bat towards cover. A run taken.
  • 42.1Full and down the leg side, swept away for a single.
  • YUZVENDRA CHAHAL is back on as well.
  • 41.6FOUR! Great shot. Floated on middle, Nicholls comes down the track and lofts it straight back over the bowler for a boundary! 12 from the over! 78 needed from 48 balls now. 260/4
  • 41.5Full on middle and leg, Tom looks to sweep but misses. The ball goes off his pads through fine leg and Dhoni hares after it. Gets to the ball and throws it but not before the batsmen complete the second.
  • 41.4Good stop. A shortish ball outside off, Nicholls punches it through cover-point and Dinesh Karthik gets to the ball from sweeper cover. Dives and stops the ball but in the process seems to have made contact with the ropes. It is referred upstairs but replays confirm he is fine. Two runs.
  • Is that a boundary? Dinesh Karthik has pulled off a good save. But has he touched the ropes?
  • 41.3Short and outside off, punched through the covers where Kohli dives to stop.
  • 41.2Tossed up, Henry comes forward and defends.
  • 41.1FOUR! Not a great start to the over. Short and outside off, Nicholls goes back and punches it through the covers. Finds the gap and the boundary. 86 more needed from 53 balls now.
  • Here is KEDAR JADHAV.
  • 40.6Full on middle, pushed down to long on for a single. India will not mind that. They will want the new man on strike for as many balls as possible. A terrific over - possible game-changing one? Just a run and a wicket from it. Bumrah has figures of 7-0-20-2 so far. 248/4
  • 40.5Full and straight, Henry cannot get this one away either. Another dot.
  • 40.4Excellent yorker on middle and off, dug out straight to short mid-wicket. Nicholls wanders around the pitch for a single but is rightly sent back.
  • 40.3The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 40.2Full and outside off, pushed through the covers but straight to the fielder.
  • HENRY NICHOLLS walks in at number 6, replacing Taylor.
  • 40.1OUT! Bumrah gets rid of Taylor! The bounce gets the better of the batsman. Bumrah bowls an off cutter, landing it on a length outside off. Taylor comes forward to defend but the ball bounces sharply and goes off the shoulder of the bat, looping straight to Kedar Jadhav at backward point. Nothing much he could have done there. End of a struggling knock but the crucial 79-run stand has been broken. NEW ZEALAND NEED 91 FROM 59 BALLS.
  • POWERPLAY 3 time! Five fielders allowed outside the circle. India scored 85/5 during their batting. New Zealand need 91 with 7 wickets in hand.
  • 39.6Fuller in length, down the leg side again, flicked to fine leg for one more. 247/3
  • 39.5Down the leg side, on a length, flicked straight to long leg for a run.
  • 39.4FOUR! Magnificent shot. The length is short but there is not that much width outside off. However, like a very nice guy who adjusts to whatever he gets, Latham gets on top of the bounce and just punches it through point. The result is a boundary.
  • 39.3RUN OUT CHANCE! Missed. Full on middle, Taylor works it straight to Virat Kohli at short mid-wicket. The Indian skipper fields, waits, takes aim and then has a shy at the bowler's end. Would have had Rosco had he hit.
  • 39.2Outside off, punched wide of mid off for a single.
  • 39.1On a length around middle, punched back to the bowler.
  • 38.6A length ball down the leg side, tucked straight to short fine leg for a run to take the target down to double figures. 99 needed from 66 balls. What a terrific over from Bumrah - 0, 0, 0, 0, 1 (could have been W) and 1. 239/3
  • 38.5ALMOST A CATCH! What an over this has been on Bumrah. Building up pressure, pressure, pressure and nearly getting a wicket. Full and outside off, Taylor looks to push it back down the ground but ends up chipping it aerially towards the bowler. Bumrah sticks out his left hand but the ball is wide. Goes to mid off and the batsmen take the first run of the over.
  • 38.4Dot ball number 4 on the trot. Pressure building up on Taylor. A half volley, should have been put away, that too, on the stumps, is flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 38.3Another dot ball. Rosco charges down the track and has an almighty heave. All he gets is an inside edge onto the pads.
  • 38.2On middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 38.1Landed outside off, Taylor dabs it straight to point and sets off for a single. Is sent back.
  • 37.6FOUR! Crucial boundary! A length ball but on the pads, Latham just wrists it through mid-wicket. The fielder dives to his right but the ball goes through. 11 from the over! 237/3
  • 37.5Landed outside off, Taylor waits and waits and waits and then eventually dabs it to a fielder who has been placed at widish first slip or a gully type position. A single taken.
  • 37.4Down the leg side, flicked through the leg side for a run.
  • 37.3Another short ball, pulled through mid-wicket by Latham. Shikhar Dhawan gives it a good chase in the deep to his right, dives and stops the ball. The batsmen take two, think about the third but do not execute it.
  • 37.2Banged in short, pulled uppishly but straight to deep mid-wicket. On the bounce in front of him. A single taken. 109 more needed from 76 balls now.
  • 37.1Down the leg side, Taylor works it through square leg. He calls for two, takes on Dinesh Karthik's arm who is charging in but makes it comfortably.
  • 36.6Played to the point region by the batsman. One run added to the total. 226/3
  • 36.5Full and outside off, driven straight back. Bumrah does well to stop it in his followthrough.
  • 36.4Pushed to the cover region by the batsman.
  • 36.3Full and wide outside off, driven through point for a couple.
  • 36.2The batsman has worked it off his pads behind square. One run added to the total.
  • 36.1Outside off, dabbed to third man for a single.
  • DRINKS are on the field now. 117 from 84 is the equation. The required run rate is slowly touching 9 an over. Normally you do tend to favour the chasing side with so many wickets in hand, but unless dew plays a big part, India have the edge here. The Kiwis will hope that this stand at least takes them to within 50 runs of victory. And here comes one of their biggest obstacles in doing that - JASPRIT BUMRAH.
  • 35.6Full and down the leg side, flicked through mid-wicket for a run. 221/3
  • 35.5Banged in short on middle, pulled to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 35.4Around off, watchfully defended.
  • Interesting. Very interesting. The on-air commentators were discussing about how far the Kiwi batsmen were backing up at the bowler's end. While they were talking, the image was being shown of Taylor backing up too far on the giant screen. Kohli spots that and has a word with the umpires who in turn, have a word with Taylor. The question to be asked here is - Should the umpires be telling the batsmen about this? Or should it just be left to the consequences which will result in Mankading?
  • 35.3Down the leg side, tucked towards fine leg for a run. 119 more needed from 87 balls now.
  • 35.3WIDE. A slower bouncer, around middle, ducked under. Too high and the umpire stretches his arms. 50-RUN STAND is up, in 44 balls. New Zealand will want these two to up the ante now. The required rate is constantly rising, reaching 8.5 an over.
  • 35.2Pushes this down the ground to long on for a single.
  • 35.1Outside off, punched through the covers for a couple.
  • BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR is back. Had gone for 51 in his first 5 overs.
  • 34.6FOUR! There comes the much-needed boundary of the over! Full and in line of the stumps, Taylor gets down and sweeps it through fine leg. Yuzvendra Chahal dives to his right from short fine leg but the ball goes through! 214/3
  • 34.5Full on leg stump, swept through square leg for one more.
  • 34.4Comes down the track and works it through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 34.3The batsman has nudged the ball fine down the leg side. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 34.2TOP EDGE, SAFE! Full on middle, Taylor gets down to sweep but gets a top edge. Luckily for him, the ball does not carry to short fine leg. A single taken.
  • 34.1A short ball around middle, tucked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 33.6FOUR! Innovative! The boundaries are flowing now. Again, this is a good shot as opposed to bad bowling. The ball is on a length around off, but Taylor gets down and across and plays a sweep shot, yes, SWEEP SHOT past short fine leg for a boundary. You do not expect sweeps of a fast bowler or a medium pacer do you? Unless of course the batsman is AB de Villiers. But this is modern day cricket. 11 from the over. 205/3
  • 33.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 33.4Outside off, punched through the covers for one this time.
  • 33.3FOUR! Fine shot. 200 COMES UP. A length ball outside off, cross-seamer, the little off cutter, Latham stands tall and punches it square of the wicket past a diving point fielder to the boundary! 138 more needed from 99 balls now.
  • 33.2Outside off, Taylor looks to dab it to third man but gets a bit of a bottom edge. The ball rolls off the pitch to the off side and the batsmen pinch a quick run.
  • 33.1On a length outside off, punched through the covers for a single.
  • 32.6Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single. 194/3
  • 32.6WIDE. The ball is down the leg side but the batsman still goes after it. The umpire has signalled a wide.
  • 32.5Played through mid-wicket by the batsman.
  • 32.4Works this through mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 32.3FOUR! Cheeky! Landed outside off, Latham adjusts well and reverse sweeps it, just past Dhoni through the vacant slip cordon to the third man fence! 148 more needed from 105 balls now. Replays show that the shot was actually played from the back of the bat.
  • 32.2Comes down the track again and this time gets the ball away to mid-wicket for a single.
  • 32.1Full and outside off, Taylor comes down the track but is forced to defend.
  • 31.6Outside off, dabbed down to third man for a single. 8 runs from the over, New Zealand will take that. Hence, a boundary in the first half of an over is always beneficial if you are the batting side. Makes it easier to score the rest of the runs in the remaining balls of that over, if you have planned a target per over. 185/3
  • 31.5Landed around off, watchfully defended.
  • 31.4Full and around off, driven down the ground to long on for one.
  • 31.3Fullish, on the pads, flicked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 31.2A tad short, exactly what Latham wanted, works it off his hips through square leg for a single.
  • 31.1FOUR! CARESSED! Nothing a bowler can do about this shot. The ball is full and straight and Latham sends it right back from where it came. Back past the bowler down the ground to his left. Excellent shot. 157 more needed from 113 balls now.
  • 30.6Full and around off, watchfully defended. 177/3
  • 30.5Full and outside off, Rosco comes down the track and drives it straight to short extra cover.
  • 30.4Stays back again and works it with the angle through square leg for a run.
  • 30.3Goes back and works it straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 30.2Comes down the track again and this time punches it to long on for a single.
  • 30.1Tossed up on middle, Taylor comes down the track but bunts it back to the bowler.
  • AXAR PATEL is back on.
  • 29.6The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 175/3
  • 29.5A slower ball outside off, on a length, Tom looks to run it down to third man but misses. The ball lands in front of Dhoni.
  • 29.4Eases this through the covers for one more.
  • 29.3Full and outside off, driven towards mid off for a quick run.
  • 29.2On the pads, flicked away for a single.
  • 29.2WIDE. Another bouncer, almost a carbon copy of the previous ball. Result is the same.
  • 29.2WIDE. A slower bouncer, but down the leg side. Taylor walks across and lets it go. It was well over his head too.
  • 29.1Outside off, punched straight to Virat Kohli at cover who fumbles and concedes a single. Has not had a happy time on the field tonight, the Indian captain.
  • HARDIK PANDYA is back on. Bowled just the solitary over early on.
  • 28.6Full and around off, Latham gets down and sweeps it through square leg for a single to get off the mark. 169/3
  • 28.5ALMOST! Full and outside off, Latham looks to drive but the ball goes off the inside edge past the leg stump! Short fine leg mops it up.
  • TOM LATHAM walks in at number 5, replacing his skipper. The Indians now have two new opposition batsmen in the middle.
  • 28.4OUT! That is it for the skipper! No century for him. New Zealand needed him to anchor the innings but he has departed just beyond the halfway mark. Full and outside off, Williamson looks to sweep but it turns out to be an ungainly one. He gets a top edge which goes straight up in the air. Dhoni calls for it and takes the catch calmly. The equation is now going out of hands for the Kiwis... 170 needed from 128 balls. Replays show that while going for the catch, Dhoni was nearly hit by Williamson's bat! But all is well in the end.
  • 28.3Short and outside off, Taylor goes back and dabs it to short third man for a run.
  • 28.2Comes down the track and eases it through the covers for a single.
  • 28.1Full on middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 27.6Williamson punches this to man at sweeper cover for a run. 166/2
  • 27.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 27.4Taylor dances down the ground and hits it through mid off for a run.
  • 27.3Confusion here! Patel loops it up around off, Williamson hits it back towards the left of the bowler, who dives and makes a half-stop. The ball rolls towards mid on even as the batsman looks to take a run. Pandya from mid on gets to the ball and looks to hit the stumps at the bowler's end but ends up throwing it on the helmet of Kane who was trying to make it in. He ends up stumbling over Pandya who is down after the attempt. Seems to have hurt himself a bit as the batsman rolled over him.
  • 27.2This ball is cut away towards point.
  • 27.1This delivery is punched to the fielder at covers.
  • 26.6Taylor uses his feet to come down and bunts it with the bat and pad close to each other. 163/2
  • 26.5FOUR! Lucky boundary for Taylor! Chahal fires in a flatter wrong 'un around off, Ross doesn't pick it up. Goes back to cut it but is hurried into the shot. Gets a thickish outside edge past the lone slip fielder for a boundary.
  • 26.4Floated around off, Taylor gets to the pitch of the ball to block.
  • 26.3Fuller loopy ball around off, Kane knocks it down to long off for a run.
  • 26.2Taylor taps this towards cover-point and rotates strike to get to the other end.
  • 26.1Served in line of the stumps, Williamson gets forward and drives it to long on for a run.
  • 25.6This ball is turned straight to mid-wicket. 156/2
  • 25.5Kane hits it down to long off for a single.
  • 25.4Williamson finds the cover fielder with his drive.
  • 25.3Floated on the stumps, Taylor turns it towards deep mid-wicket for one run.
  • 25.2Ross lunges forward to block that with a straight bat face.
  • 25.1Flatter on the pads, Taylor plays for the turn but misses to get hit on the pads.
  • 24.6This ball is hit straight to the fielder at point. 154/2
  • 24.5The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 24.4Taylor gets going with a flick through mid-wicket.
  • 24.3Served in line of the stumps, Taylor blocks it from the crease.
  • ROSS TAYLOR is the next man in for New Zealand. He is the man in form for them. Although he missed out in the last game, he looked in sublime touch and today is the day to make amends and merry, he'd believe.
  • 24.2OUT! Knocked him over! Chahal erupts, Green Park erupts. He tosses this leg spinner around off, the ball spins in after pitching. Munro chose the unwise option of playing against the spin as he looked to drive it to the off side. Ends up missing the ball and losing his woodwork. This is excellent bowling from Yuzvendra as he was generous in his flight even when the batsmen looked to hit it big. A very good innings from Munro comes to an end now, although there was no need for such an expansive shot against the turn. India would sniff a chance now.
  • 24.1Looped up around middle, Williamson comes down the track and plays it to long off for a single.
  • 23.6SIX! Munro goes big, connects it beautifully! Jadhav fires this around off, Colin gets down and extends his arms to hit it over mid-wicket for half a dozen. Clean strike. 152/1
  • 23.5Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 23.4Munro gets to the pitch of the ball and collects a single to long on.
  • 23.3The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball.
  • 23.2That's the 100-run stand between these two. Williamson taps it in front of covers for a single. Deja vu? The Indian pair after the early fall of a wicket stitched up a huge stand and now New Zealand is following suit here.
  • 23.1Served around off, Kane goes back and finds the mid-wicket fielder with the flick.
  • 22.6Williamson gets on the back foot and punches it down the ground to long on for a single. 143/1
  • 22.5Munro plays it with the turn and plays it through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 22.4The batsman charges down the wicket. One run added to the total.
  • 22.3Flatter outside off, cut towards point.
  • 22.2Generous flight given by Chahal on this occasion, Kane lunges forward to defend it with a straight bat.
  • 22.1Floated in line of the stumps, Williamson easily defends it off the front foot.
  • 21.6Williamson has driven it through mid on for a single. 140/1
  • 21.6Wide! Jadhav is just not bowling the right lines. Aiming at the batsman's pads, he fires this down the leg side. Dhoni fails to take that and it results in a couple of byes.
  • 21.5Short ball around leg, pulled away towards square leg where Pandya dives to prevent the ball passing him.
  • 21.4FOUR! The Kiwi skipper brings up his 32nd fifty in ODIs in style. He looked a bit out of sorts in the previous games but today he's put his hands up when required. This was flatter outside off, Williamson punches it through covers for a boundary.
  • 21.3Dropped around off, Colin punches it to long off for a single.
  • 21.2Fuller ball outside off, driven to the fielder at covers.
  • 21.1Bowled with a slingy action, Munro hits it back towards the bowler.
  • 20.6Landed outside off, cut towards point. 131/1
  • 20.5The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 20.4FOUR! Williamson is growing in confidence the more time he spends at the crease. Chahal delivers it around off, Kane gets down and plays against the spin. Goes over mid-wicket and helps himself to a one-bounce boundary.
  • 20.3Loopy ball around middle and off, Kane strides forward and blocks it solidly.
  • 20.2Now he drives this to the man at long on for a single.
  • 20.1Served in line of the stumps, Munro defends it off the front foot.
  • 19.6Munro hits this down to long on for one run. 126/1
  • 19.5Fuller around off, driven towards covers, where Kohli misfields to concede a couple. Not a sight that you associate with the Indian skipper.
  • 19.4Landed around middle, turned towards mid-wicket.
  • 19.3Driven towards the mid on region. One run added to the total.
  • 19.2Munro picks up a run after playing it to long on.
  • 19.1Flatter on the pads, Williamson goes back and pulls it along the ground through backward square leg for a run.
  • 18.6Not Out! Munro stays on! Chahal tosses this around leg, the ball spins in. Munro looks to play against the turn and misses the ball completely. It goes to Dhoni who whips off the bails quickly and asks the question. The umpire takes it upstairs. Replays confirm that Colin is safe indeed. Dhoni's body language is a sign of things and he wasn't really gung-ho about this one. 120/1
  • Dhoni is at it again! Flips off the bails quickly and appeals for a stumping against Munro. The third umpire is referred to. His body language shows that the batsman might be safe.
  • 18.5Floated around leg, Munro flicks it away through mid-wicket. Pandya in the deep hares to his right, dives and saves a couple of runs for his side. Draws huge cheers from the crowd which looked to have dozed off for a while.
  • 18.4Another loopy delivery around off, eased down to long off for one.
  • 18.3A low full toss in line of the stumps, knocked down to long off for one.
  • 18.2Straighter ball around leg, Colin picks that up and bunts it back towards the bowler.
  • 18.1Tossed up around off, Williamson gets to the pitch of the ball and drives it to long off for one run.
  • 17.6Finally a single. Kane retains strike after he eases this down to long on. 115/1
  • 17.5Make that 4! Served flatter on the stumps, Kane punches it towards mid on who prevents any run.
  • 17.4This is bowled outside off, punched straight to the cover fielder. 3 dots in a row now.
  • 17.3Another flick finds the mid-wicket fielder now.
  • 17.2Bowled on the pads, Kane flicks it away towards square leg.
  • 17.1Flatter outside off, slapped through covers for a single.
  • Time for drinks! New Zealand will be happy with how their chase has panned out as yet. They are going over 6 an over and most of the credit needs to go to Munro. The southpaw has taken the run chase by the scruff of its neck and Kumar and Pandya have borne the brunt of that so far. India soon need to get him otherwise they would left with watching the ball fly to all parts of the boundary.
  • 16.6Tossed up around middle, Williamson lunges forward and defends it solidly. 113/1
  • 16.5On a length on the stumps, Williamson goes back and punches it towards mid-wicket for a brace. Good running there.
  • 16.4Served around off, Kane hangs back to cut it towards point.
  • 16.3Looped up around off, Williamson strides forward and blocks it.
  • 16.2Flatter on the pads, turned through backward square leg for a single.
  • 16.1Beautifully bowled. Chahal tosses the wrong 'un around middle, Munro gets his bat to defend the non-existent turn. The ball goes straight on into the keeper's gloves.
  • 15.6Bowled around off, punched to the right of the bowler who tumbles to prevent a run. 110/1
  • 15.5Williamson hits it back towards the bowler.
  • 15.4The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 15.3FOUR! If my skipper can strike a boundary, even I can, says Munro. Jadhav serves it fuller outside off, Colin drives it powerfully through cover-point. The ball wastes no time in rushing away to the fence.
  • 15.2Kane picks up a single after playing it to long off.
  • 15.1FOUR! Interesting to see how much time Williamson gets even against a bowler who bowls with a flatter trajectory. Darted quicker around off, Kane moves back quickly and slaps it through covers for a boundary.
  • 14.6This time Williamson plays it through mid off for a run. 100/1
  • 14.5Perfect leg spinner's delivery! Chahal tosses it up around leg, Williamson looks to block off the front foot. The ball spins past viciously and goes to Dhoni who loves to whip off the bails quickly.
  • 14.4Loopy ball around middle, Williamson uses his feet to get to the ball and defends it.
  • 14.3Flatter around off, Kane cuts it towards point.
  • 14.2Williamson lunges forward nicely as he blocks it with the full face of the bat.
  • 14.1Floated around middle and leg, knocked down to long on for a single.
  • A mini conference between Kohli and Dhoni before deciding that YUZVENDRA CHAHAL will be introduced into the attack.
  • 13.6That's the 4th ODI fifty for Colin Munro. He has really teed off from the word go today, something that his side would have wanted. The longer he stays, the better it is for his side and exactly the opposite for the hosts. This time he knocks it down to long on for a run to get to his milestone. 98/1
  • 13.5Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 13.4Williamson clips this through mid-wicket and crosses over to the other end.
  • 13.3FOUR! 50-run stand up between these two! This pair has really looked good since Guptill departed, often leaving the Indian bowlers clueless. Jadhav bowls it flat on the pads, Williamson gets down and sweeps it past short fine leg for a boundary.
  • 13.2The batsman opens the face of the bat and helps it to third man.
  • 13.1The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot towards the bowler.
  • 12.6FOUR! Brilliantly played! Munro was struggling when he was stuck at the crease and hence decides to use his feet. Axar floats it around leg, Munro charges down and hits it past mid off for a boundary. Nobody stood a chance to cutting that off. 92/1
  • 12.5A misfield from Kedar at covers allows Williamson a single that shouldn't have been.
  • 12.4FOUR! You are bowling too fast, shouts Dhoni from behind the sticks as soon as Axar bowled that. He darted it a tad short outside off, Williamson hangs back and cuts it past point for a boundary.
  • 12.3Munro fails to sweep this one again as he is a tad early into the shot. Gets it off his pads towards short third man for a quick run.
  • 12.2Flatter on the pads, Munro looks to turn it away but wears it on the pads.
  • 12.1Floated around off, Munro absolutely smashes it but straight to the man stationed at mid off.
  • Kohli is back on the field now.
  • 11.6Williamson looks to cut this but ends up chopping it towards the keeper. 82/1
  • 11.5Served outside off, played towards the fielder at point.
  • 11.4Flatter around off, Kane goes back and hits it towards covers.

  • 11.2Munro defends this ball back towards the bowler off the front foot.
  • 11.1Flatter on the pads, flicked away through square leg for a single.
  • Virat Kohli is off the field and so Rohit Sharma takes charge. KEDAR JADHAV will have a bowl now. How effective will he be today?
  • 10.6FOUR! This is why Munro has an aura of being very dangerous with the bat. He stays low, changes his stance and plays the switch hit through backward point for a boundary. Shows that he is a murderous mood today. Spoils what could have been a good over. 80/1
  • 10.5This ball is hit back towards the bowler.
  • 10.4Kane rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 10.3A tad shorter outside off, Williamson looks to cut that but misses.
  • 10.2Landed around off, Williamson defends it showing the full face of the bat.
  • 10.1Bowled around middle, turned through mid-wicket for one run.
  • Powerplay 2 has been signaled. Now a maximum of 4 fielders can be outside the circle till the 40th over. Also, AXAR PATEL is brought in to bowl. He had a good game in the previous one and that would make him feel confident.
  • 9.6The batsman has been struck on the thigh-pad. 74/1
  • 9.5Munro taps it towards mid on and hares across to the other end for a run.
  • 9.5Wide! Bumrah spears this down the leg side. Munro misses the flick.

  • 9.3Length delivery outside off, Williamson dabs it to third man for a single.
  • 9.2Williamson stays in the crease and blocks it watchfully.
  • 9.1Short ball on the body, pulled away to fine leg for a single.
  • Just an over for Pandya. JASPRIT BUMRAH is back on. This is more because the former went for runs.
  • 8.6This ball is played towards mid-wicket for nothing. 70/1
  • 8.5Very full outside off, guided to third man for a run.
  • 8.4This ball is driven towards the fielder at mid off.
  • 8.3Munro gets an inside edge and the ball hits him on the pads.
  • 8.2SIX! Munro bashes it high and over mid-wicket for a maximum. Kumar bowls a slower knuckle ball on a length around leg, Colin makes room and plays a cross-batted hit for half a dozen. He's picking the change of pace alright today.
  • 8.1This ball is driven wide of mid on for a single.
  • 7.6This delivery is played towards square leg and a run taken. There's a direct hit at the bowler's end but Kane's well in. 62/1
  • 7.5This ball is driven towards mid on.
  • Slip comes out and goes to a catching mid-wicket.
  • 7.4Williamson flicks it through square leg and before the fine leg fielder gets to the ball, a brace results.
  • 7.3FOUR! Another one! Pandya repeats the mistake that he did earlier and gets punished again. He lands it on the pads, Williamson clips it through mid-wicket for a boundary. That's not ideal for the captain who has changed the bowling when he had just got a wicket.
  • 7.2This ball is played towards mid-wicket from the crease.
  • 7.1FOUR! Timing is all that has taken this delivery into the boundary fence. Pandya begins with a back of a length delivery around middle and leg, Williamson gets on his toes and flicks it in front of square on the leg side. The ball wasn't far from Rohit Sharma the fielder there and races away to the fence.
  • HARDIK PANDYA is brought into the attack. That's a tad surprising as Bumrah was going well and had just picked up a wicket.
  • 6.6Kumar continues over the wicket to Munro this time, Munro defends it back towards the bowler. 51/1
  • 6.5Defended off the back foot by the Williamson. The batsmen have run through for a single

  • 6.3Kane hits it straight to covers from the crease.
  • 6.2Williamson stays in the crease and defends it from the crease.
  • 6.1FOUR! Wow, what a shot! Shows that this track is full of runs here. Kumar bowls it on a back of a length outside off, Williamson goes back and punches it through point for a boundary. Brings up the 50 for New Zealand.
  • 5.6Bumrah spears in a yorker in line of the stumps, Kane digs it out towards mid-wicket and hares to the other end for a run. 46/1
  • 5.5This ball is punched towards backward point from the crease.
  • 5.4Length ball around off, Williamson stays back in the crease and defends it showing the full face of the bat.
  • 5.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. One run added to the total.
  • 5.2Munro plays this delivery from the crease to the off side.
  • KANE WILLIAMSON is the next man in. He's not having a great run in ODIs in India and the time is ripe for him to change that fact. Will the Kiwi skipper step up today?
  • 5.1OUT! 50 ODI wickets for Jasprit Bumrah, the second fastest Indian to get there after Ajit Agarkar! And what a time to strike. The Kiwis were going great guns when he has struck. He bowls it on a length around off, Guptill makes room and looks to go over mid off. Ends up getting it high on the bat and hence the ball has height and not the distance. Karthik backtracks, keeps his eyes on the ball and pouches it safely. Another failure for Martin, New Zealand rocked early.
  • 4.6FOUR! Munro finally gets it right! Kumar bowls a shorter length ball around off, Munro sways back and ramps it over short third man for a boundary. 44/0
  • 4.5Fuller around off, Guptill drives it through covers. Axar runs there from mid off and chases it down. The batsmen at this point have completed two and go for another one on the throw. The throw goes to Kohli near mid off who hurls it to the keeper. All's safe and the batsmen get three.
  • 4.4Munro turns this one through mid-wicket and crosses over to the other end for a run.
  • 4.4Wide! Bhuvneshwar sees Colin charging down and bowls a slower delivery down the leg side. Wide given by the umpire. Replays show that it was the knuckle ball.
  • 4.3Very full delivery around off, hit straight back to the bowler, who has a shy at the keeper's end.
  • 4.3Wide! Another short delivery but off target this time. It is bowled down the leg side, Munro looks to pull it but misses. There is an appeal from the keeper but the umpire signals a wide.
  • 4.2If the slower delivery was the plan for Munro in the previous game, it seems to be the short ball in this one. Kumar bangs it in line of the stumps, Munro goes back and looks to ramp it over the keeper but misses.
  • 4.2Wide! Another bouncer around off and middle, Munro looks to hook that but misses. The umpire has to stretch his arms there.
  • 4.1What's that? Kumar bangs it short around off seeing Munro charge down the track. Seeing the length the batsman ducks and the ball goes off something and lands in front of backward point. Replays show that it went off the gloves. Brilliant bowling by Kumar.
  • 3.6Hurled around off, Martin stays in the crease and defends. 33/0
  • 3.5The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 3.4On a length around off, defended back towards the bowler.
  • 3.3Back of a length delivery around off and middle, tailing in to Guptill. He misses the flick and wears it high on the pads and the ball lobs to the backward point fielder who runs a bit forward. There is a stifled appeal but to no avail. A huge cheer from the crowd follows.
  • 3.2Munro clips it towards mid on and sets off for a run and completes it.
  • 3.1Bowled around off, Colin drives it straight back to the bowler.
  • 2.6Bowled outside off, pushed towards backward point. 32/0
  • 2.5Another short ball in line of the stumps, Guptill crouches low to let that go. It went on the bounce to Dhoni.
  • 2.5Wide! Kumar bowls it short but down the leg side, Martin ducks to let it go. Wide signaled.
  • 2.4FOUR! Wonderfully played by Guptill. Kumar hurls it on a length outside off, Martin hangs back and punches through cover-point. Rohit runs to his right and dives but is unable to prevent the boundary.
  • 2.3The batsman defends it from within the crease. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 2.3Wide! This ball is sprayed down the leg side but Colin misses the flick.
  • 2.2Leading edge, but well short! Kumar comes round the wicket and bowls a slower one around off. Munro looks to go to the on side but the ball takes the leading edge and lands towards mid off.
  • 2.1Length ball outside off, Guptill plays it past backward point for one.
  • 1.6The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 24/0
  • 1.5Good come back. Bumrah lands it on a length around off, Colin defends it solidly from the crease.
  • 1.4FOUR! Now it's time for Bumrah to bear the brunt of Munro's power-shots. Charges down a couple of steps and hits it straight over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 1.3Bumrah comes round the wicket and bangs it short outside off, Munro looks to pull but misses.
  • 1.2Edged again! Have the extra slip, says Sunil Gavaskar on air. Guptill looks to drive that but gets a thick outside edge to third man for a single.
  • 1.1Bumrah starts by bowling it around off, Guptill blocks it off his front foot.
  • JASPRIT BUMRAH to bowl from the other end with the second new ball.
  • 0.6FOUR OVERTHROWS! Unnecessary through from Kohli there. Munro finds him at covers with the drive but Virat has a shy at the bowler's end. There's no one backing up and the ball goes away to the boundary. Sheepish smile from the skipper but the Kiwis are off to a flying start here. 19/0
  • 0.5FOUR! This is even better. Fuller around off, Munro times it brilliantly through mid off. The ball beats the fielder there and races away to the fence. Back to back boundaries for Munro here.
  • 0.4FOUR! Timing and placement to perfection. Kumar overcorrects and gives him width. Munro stays in the crease and cuts it fiercely past backward point for a boundary. The third man fielder didn't have a chance to cut that off.
  • 0.3SIX! Woahh! Intentions clear straightaway! Kumar hurls it on a length around middle, Munro shimmies a tad and bashes it over mid-wicket for a maximum. What a way to get going.
  • 0.2Edged off the region from where the extra slip was moved. Guptill looks to hit this length ball through the off side but gets a thick outside edge towards third man for a run. He gets going.
  • A slip goes out.
  • 0.1Kumar starts off with a delivery on target. He bowls from over the wicket around off, Guptill defends it with a straight bat off the front foot.
  • Welcome back for the run chase. New Zealand have their task cut out. Their openers MARTIN GUPTILL and COLIN MUNRO walk in with the bat and they would aim to help their side by giving them a flying start. Remember, dew could play its part. The hosts opt to begin with BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR, who will run in with the first new ball. How will the bowlers bowl first up? Slower deliveries or seam their way through? The change in pace has troubled Munro in the past. Two slips first up. Here we go...
