  • So that is it then! The Indians are handed the trophy and they are seen celebrating. A convincing series win one can say. Now they need to turn their attention to the shortest format. They have three T20Is coming up with the first one to be played on the 6th of February at 2000 local (0700 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
  • Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, says he feels good especially after the Hamilton loss. States his team showed great character to bounce back. Reckons the partnership between Vijay Shankar and Ambati Rayudu was the turning point. Credits the way Pandya batted towards the end. Appreciates the way they bowled and defended this total in tough conditions. Mentions he would have batted second if the series was on the line but they wanted to test themselves. Ends by saying they have the right balance in the bowling department and beating New Zealand in their own backyard is a big achievement.
  • New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson, says the surface was a challenging one. Mentions India's good finish saw them end with a total which was slightly above par. States they kept losing wickets at the wrong time which dented their chances of winning this game. Credits the way Rayudu played first and then how the Indian bowlers bowled. Reckons one more partnership and the story would have been different. He hopes to learn from this series loss. Ends by saying the Indians had them more under pressure throughout the series and they failed to cope with it.
  • PLAYER OF THE SERIES IS MOHAMMED SHAMI.
  • Man of the Match, Ambati Rayudu, says it was very tough against a quality bowling attack. Mentions at 18 for 4, he wanted to take his time and focus on not losing wickets. He was more keen on playing out the 50 overs. States the Hamilton performance was a one off game and they proved they are a good enough side here today. Credits the way his bowlers defended the total.
  • It was a really professional bowling performance by India. Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were exceptional in Powerplay 1 and created all the pressure. Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar never let the intensity drop in the middle overs and then the spin of Yuzvendra Chahal bamboozled the Kiwis. Kedar Jadhav also played his part and as mentioned earlier, he hunted down the big fish, Kane Williamson. All in all, it was a complete team effort from India and they deservingly take the series 4-1.
  • In pursuit, New Zealand lost Henry Nicholls cheaply and after throwing his bat around for a while, Colin Munro's lucky stay in the middle also got over. When Ross Taylor departed, it looked like India will run through their batting order but the pair of Kane Williamson and Tom Latham steadied the ship with a valuable stand. The hosts were well on course after that but the Men in Blue never lost hope. The magic arm of Kedar Jadhav brought them the breakthrough and the Indian bowlers capitalized from thereon. The wickets started to tumble at regular intervals and in spite of the required run rate not too demanding, the lower half didn't show enough patience. James Neesham and Mitchell Santner did try their best but once the former was run out by MS Dhoni, the writing was on the wall.
  • Excellent win for India! They have bounced back brilliantly after suffering an embarrassing loss in the previous ODI. Earlier it appeared that the script of Hamilton will get repeated here as well when they were 18/4 but this time around, they kept their cool and did well to form partnerships in the middle overs. Efforts of Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar and Kedar Jadhav put them in a good position and then Hardik Pandya's cameo powered their score beyond the 250-run mark.
  • 44.1OUT! All over! India win by 35 runs and take the series 4-1! Kumar bangs in a short delivery outside off, Boult throws his bat at it in an attempt to slap it through the line but it takes the top edge. The ball flies in the air and Shami takes a simple catch at third man. The players are shaking hands in the middle now.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns into the attack.
  • 43.636 more needed in 36 now as Pandya finishes with a dot. Another slower ball, the length is full and outside off. Henry fails to put bat to ball. 217/9
  • 43.5SIX! BOOM! Henry is not going down without a fight. Back-to-back maximums. Another length ball, it is also slower in pace. Henry picks it and he smashes it over the deep backward square leg fence. 36 more needed in 37.
  • 43.4SIX! This is how he bats! Pandya pitches it short and around off, Henry does well to get on top of the delivery and dispatches it over mid-wicket for a biggie.
  • 43.3TB makes room but Pandya bowls a yorker on middle. Boult gets bat to it and it rolls through mid on for a run.
  • 43.2Length outside off, Boult looks to keep it out but is beaten by the low bounce.
  • Trent Boult is the last man in.
  • 43.1OUT! That is probably the final nail in the coffin. Santner stands there in disbelief. A tad unlucky he is, you can say. That was a boundary delivery. A half volley on leg stump. Santner flicks it fine, there is just one fielder there. Mohammed Shami takes it easily at short fine leg. India are a wicket away now.
  • Can he finish things off in this over?
  • Hardik Pandya is back on.
  • 42.6Plays out Chahal successfully. Done for the night is the leggie. He has brilliant figures of 10-0-41-3. Very full delivery on off, Henry hits it to covers. Just three from the over, 49 from 42. 204/8
  • 42.5The slider on middle, Henry goes back and keeps it out.
  • A slip comes in.
  • 42.4Flighted ball on middle, Santner's eyes lit up as he sees the flight. Looks to go downtown but ends up getting it off the inner half towards long on for a run.
  • 42.3The slider and it is on the pads, it is worked in the gap in the square leg region for a brace.
  • 42.2This time he is beaten by the bounce! The googly outside off, it is slower through the air. Santner looks to cut again but misses.
  • 42.1Flatter and outside off, Santner looks to cut it but is done in by the pace there. Gets beaten.
  • 41.6FOUR! Lines up the bowler there. Shami delivers it full and outside off, slower in pace, Henry hangs back and smites it over the bowler's head for a boundary. 201/8
  • 41.5Wow, a terrific yorker, you cannot do much with that as a batsman. Henry only squeezes it out to mid-wicket.
  • 41.4This one is a full toss on middle, Santner swings it through mid-wicket and takes a run. Henry slips while turning for the second and they have to be satisfied with just one.
  • 41.3A low full toss outside off, Santner digs it out and it goes straight to point.
  • 41.2Back of a length delivery on off, Henry leans back a bit and punches it to sweeper cover for a run. He has got the power and can hit them big. India can't take him lightly.
  • 41.1Spears in a very full ball on off, Santner pushes it down the ground to long on and takes a single.
  • 40.6The slider on off, it is kept out. End of a successful over for Chahal. A wicket and just 5 from it. 194/8
  • Matt Henry walks in next at number 10.
  • 40.5OUT! Three reds and no. 8 goes down. Astle walks back and takes New Zealand's only review with him. The googly does the trick for Chahal and he strikes in his first over of a new spell. It pitches around off and it turns back in. Astle misses the sweep and it hits him on the pads. An appeal follows and the umpire raises the finger. Astle signals the 'T', more in hope though. Replays roll in and they show, Astle is stone-dead. India two wickets away while New Zealand need 59 from 55.
  • Astle is a goner! He has been given out LBW. He though has reviewed. Only an inside edge can save him here.
  • 40.4Brings out the slog sweep but it goes off the inner half towards deep square leg for a run.
  • 40.3A little too short on the pads, it is worked around the corner for a single.
  • 40.2Flatter and on off, it is pushed down to long off for a single.
  • 40.1This is flatter and around off, Santner goes back and then punches it through covers for a couple.
  • Powerplay 3 time. India can have a maximum of 5 fielders outside the ring now until the end of this match. Doubt that Rohit will do that. He has his field up and not allowing any easy runs at the moment. 64 needed off 60 balls. The equation looks simple but New Zealand have only 3 wickets left.
  • 39.6Edgy run! A good over though by Shami, just 4 from it. Full and outside off, it is the slower ball. Santner swings but gets an outside edge towards third man for a run. 64 in the last 10 needed. 189/7
  • 39.5A yorker, Santner looks to hit it but it goes off the bottom towards point.
  • 39.4Slower ball and it is fuller in length. Santner hits it hard to the man at mid off.
  • 39.3Hits the length again around off, Santner guides it to the man at point.
  • 39.2Astle now punches it through covers and gets to the other end.
  • 39.1Good shot! It is driven on the up and through covers for a couple. Astle is no mug with the bat and Henry to come too can do well with the willow. The game is still not over here.
  • Mohammed Shami is back on. 68 needed off 66 balls.
  • 38.6'Isko aage thoda daal' advises Dhoni from behind the stumps and that's what Kedar does. Too full and on middle, Mitchell drives but finds the cover fielder. 185/7
  • 38.5Advances down the track to a full ball and eases his drive to long off for one.
  • 38.4Short again, wide outside off, Todd plays the square cut but finds the fielder inside the ring.
  • 38.3FOUR! There is no protection in the deep on the off side. Flighted and full outside off, Astle gets forward and drives it superbly through covers for a boundary.
  • 38.2Short and wide outside off, Astle cuts it off his back foot but finds cover-point.
  • 38.1Flatter and shorter on off, angling in from 'round the wicket, Santner gets back and punches it down to long off for a run.
  • 37.6Just a single from the over as Kumar bowls the last one also in the line of the stumps. All Astle can do is block it out. 179/7
  • 37.5Make that four dots in a row! On the stumps, defended.
  • 37.4Three dots in a row as this one is also defended to the man at covers. Rohit Sharma has his fielders really close. Does not want to give away any easy run. Good captaincy.
  • 37.3Length and around off, Astle guides it to the man at point.
  • 37.2On the stumps, it is worked to mid-wicket.
  • 37.1Uses the angle and then guides it down to third man for a run.
  • 36.6Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. No run to end the over. 178/7
  • 36.5Goes on the back foot and punches it to long on for a run.
  • 36.4Astle is now away as he strokes it down to long on and gets to the other end.
  • 36.3Flatter and on off, Astle pushes it to covers.
  • Todd Astle is the new man in.
  • 36.2OUT! Brilliance of Dhoni! Wow, take a bow, MSD! The danger man departs and India inch closer to 4-1! A flighted ball landing outside off and skidding back in. Neesham tries to sweep but misses and is hit on the pads. They appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Impact is outside off. The ball then deflects behind the stumps and James comes out of the crease having no idea where the ball is. Dhoni is quick to react to the situation. Immediately picks up the ball and flicks it onto the stumps. MS is running in celebration as the square leg umpire goes upstairs to check for the run out. The replays find the striker well short of the crease. Big blow to New Zealand's hope.
  • Has James Neesham been run out? The way MS Dhoni is celebrating, it seems so. Let's find out...
  • Some change in field for Neesham. They have strengthened the on side region.
  • 36.1Flatter and shorter on middle, Santner goes deep inside the crease and strokes it down to long on for a run.
  • Kedar Jadhav is back into the attack.
  • 35.6SIX! Huge! 10 from the last two balls and 13 from the over. 78 in 84 needed now. The momentum has shifted towards the Kiwis. Once again it is right in the slot. Length and it is coming into the batter. Neesham picks his spot and clips it over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie. 175/6
  • 35.5FOUR! Neesham looks in wonderful touch here. Runs leaking at the moment. On his pads, not somewhere you want to bowl. JN flicks it through mid-wicket. It is in the gap and a boundary results.
  • 35.4Continues to bowl a similar line and length. Neesham this time finds the man at point.
  • 35.3Once again it is nicely played! It is length and outside off, Neesham opens the face of the bat and hits it to the left of the third man fielder. Takes two.
  • 35.2Nice placement! Length and a little width on offer, Santner guides it through backward point and a run is taken.
  • 35.1Length delivery to begin his new spell, Santner keeps it out.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back.
  • 34.6Shortish on off, Neesham taps it down from the back foot to point. 10 from the over, 21 after the drinks break. 91 needed off 90 balls. 162/6
  • 34.5FOUR! Lovely hands! Shami offers width outside off, Neesham rocks back and muscles it square of the wicket on the off side for a boundary. He is the danger man as far as India are concerned.
  • 34.4Misfield and FOUR! Shami digs in a short ball around off, Neesham gets on top of the bounce and pulls it firmly in front of square leg. Shankar in the deep runs across to his left, puts in a dive but lets it right through him for a boundary. Poor!
  • 34.3Back of a length ball on off, Santner punches it off his back foot to sweeper cover for a run.
  • 34.3Bouncer this time, angling into the batsman, Santner ducks. It's way too high and the square leg umpire exercises his arms to signal a wide.
  • A slip in place.
  • 34.2And again. Shami has straightaway hit the right chord. Keeps it just outside off on a good length, Mitchell with no footwork pushes tamely inside the line and misses.
  • 34.1Play and a miss! Shami runs in from 'round the wicket and serves a good length ball outside off. It holds its line after pitching, Santner feels for it inside the line and gets beaten.
  • Mohammed Shami is back into the attack.
  • 33.6Ends with a single! 11 from the over. Santner works it with the angle around the corner for a run. 101 more needed in 96. 152/6
  • 33.5On the pads, it is clipped away nicely to deep square leg and the batsmen take two. 150 up and this is turning out to be a good over for the Kiwis.
  • 33.4Length again around off, Santner opens the face of the bat and then guides it to point.
  • 33.3Well played as Neesham guides it towards third man and gets to the other end.
  • 33.2Drags his length by quite a lot. Neesham ducks under it.
  • 33.1SIX! All the way! That is Neesham's favourite zone and Pandya just delivered the length he wanted. Slightly full and around off, Neesham whips it over the mid-wicket fence and it goes all the way.
  • 33.1A little bit of inward movement there but the line is way down the leg side. It has been wided.
  • Drinks break. 112 needed off 102 balls with 4 wickets in hand. The Indian bowlers have done exceptionally well in the middle overs as well. They hung in there when the partnership between Williamson and Latham was blossoming and once Jadhav broke that stand, they pounced on the opportunity to create further inroads. The Kiwis still have a few all-rounders left but it's going to be a difficult task for them. Let's see how it goes...
  • 32.6Slows this up in the air and bowls it on the shorter side around off, Santner gets back to cut but finds the backward point fielder. 141/6
  • 32.5A slower googly around leg, Neesham gently works it through square leg and rotates the strike.
  • 32.4Flatter and shorter around middle and leg, Mitchell goes back and punches it down to long on for one.
  • 32.3Extra flight on this occasion, full and drifting in on middle, Santner is on the front foot as he pushes it to covers.
  • 32.2Loopy full ball on off, Santner lunges and defends it to the off side.
  • 32.1Flicks it with the spin through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 31.6Dot to end as it is banged in on a length, Santner blocked. 138/6
  • 31.5Full and outside off, Santner looks to drive but ends up playing inside the line. It goes off the outer half towards third man for a couple.
  • 31.4Goes back to bowling length around off, Santner keeps it out.
  • 31.3Another bouncer! This one is better than the last one as it is right on the body. Santner just about ducks under it.
  • 31.2The bumper to welcome Santner, he though is up for the challenge and evades it.
  • 31.1On the pads, Neesham looks to drop-kick it but only manages to get it off the inner half through square leg for a run.
  • Mitchell Santner walks out to bat.
  • 30.6OUT! Chahal strikes again! Beautiful bowling by him. He has been flighting his deliveries but on this occasion, he bowls it a touch flatter. Also, it appears to be the flipper which has not been picked by de Grandhomme. He tries to draw forward in defense but misses the ball completely. Gets rapped on the pads, the Indians appeal and up goes the finger. Dead in front. Wasn't picking Chahal at all and eventually, Colin falls to the leggie. 135/6
  • 30.5Goes on the back foot to a short ball and hits it firmly to sweeper cover for one.
  • 30.4Turning down the leg side, James helps it down to fine leg for two.
  • 30.3Probably a googly, around leg, Neesham clips it on the leg side again but finds the fielder. Two dots.
  • 30.2Fullish and on middle, flicked on the leg side but not in the gap.
  • Dhoni adjusting the off side field.
  • 30.1Flatter on middle, Colin goes back and punches it down to long on for a run.
  • 29.6No, but clever batting as he guides this good length delivery down to third man and takes a run. 10 runs from the over. 122 needed in 120 balls. 131/5
  • 29.5FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This one is over mid-wicket. De Grandhomme is making good use of the angle here. It is on middle, Colin shuffles inside and then whips it over mid-wicket. Can he now make it three in a row?
  • 29.4FOUR! Picked his spot there. Saw that mid on is up, Colin gets a delivery which is a touch fuller. He goes over that region and gets a boundary.
  • 29.3Angles it into the batter, Colin works it to mid-wicket.
  • 29.2Length again on off, Neesham plays it with an angled bat down to third man and a run is taken.
  • 29.1Lands it on a length around off, Neesham guides it to point.
  • Hardik Pandya is back on.
  • 28.6Oohhh...that missed the off stump by a whisker! A well-disguised googly by Chahal. He serves it just around off and de Grandhomme is completely at sea against that variation. Fails to keep it out and the ball goes perilously close past the off pole. Almost kissed it. Fabulous over by the leggie. 121/5
  • 28.5Presses forward to a full ball and forces it down to long off for a single.
  • 28.4A googly first up to the new batsman. Full and around off, de Grandhomme tries to drive but it takes the inside edge and rolls in front of square leg for a run.
  • Colin de Grandhomme is the new man in.
  • 28.3OUT! Chahal has trapped Latham in front! A flighted delivery, landing around middle and leg, Latham tries to sweep but misses and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the umpire agrees. Tom Latham walks up to his partner and has a chat but then decides not to take the DRS. A big breakthrough for India again and now two new batsmen are in the middle. 134 needed off 129 balls. Also, the replays now show it was a good decision not to review as the Hawk Eye reflects three reds.
  • 28.2Goes back and punches it on the leg side.
  • 28.1Well stopped by Gill! A firm sweep shot by Latham goes to short fine leg where the young man dives across to his right to stop the speeding ball.
  • 27.6FOUR! Top shot! Jadhav pays the price for bowling it a little too full. Neesham whips it over the mid-wicket fielder. No one in the deep so a boundary results. 119/4
  • 27.5Once again it is clipped with the angle to the man at mid-wicket.
  • 27.4Works it with the angle to mid-wicket.
  • 27.3Slower through the air outside off, Neesham waits for it and then slaps it through covers. Dhawan in the deep runs to his left and makes a very good stop. Saves two for his side.
  • 27.2Flatter and outside off, it is slapped down to long off for a run.
  • 27.1Swept through square leg for a run.
  • 26.6FOUR! Good end to the over! Once again it is the googly but it is shorter in length. The batsman easily picks it off the wicket, goes back and then guides it through point for a boundary. 111/4
  • 26.5The googly, Latham reads it off the pitch and hence tries to adjust at the very last moment. He ends up getting an outside edge to point.
  • 26.4Too full and on off, Neesham gently pushes it through mid off for one.
  • 26.3Full and flighted on off, it's defended off the front foot.
  • 26.2Full and outside off, driven off the front foot to covers.
  • 26.1NOT OUT! Neesham never lifted his leg there. The googly on off by Chahal. Neesham fails to pick it. He looks to drive but ends up playing inside the line. Gets beaten. Dhoni behind collects it, whips the bails off and appeals. The umpire takes it upstairs. Replays show that Neesham has his foot grounded.
  • An appeal by Dhoni for a stumping has been taken upstairs. Neesham is the man in question. Dhoni does not seem very confident here.
  • 25.6Sliding down the leg side, James clips it through backward square leg and gets off the mark with a run. 2 runs and a big wicket from the over. 106/4
  • 25.5Comes from 'round the wicket and angles in a full ball on off, Neesham defends it off the front foot.
  • James Neesham arrives in the middle.
  • 25.4OUT! In the air... taken! Kedar Jadhav gets the big fish! Is this the game? We will have to wait and watch for that but it surely is a big moment in the game. The way the Indians are celebrating just shows how crucial this wicket is. Nothing great about the delivery. It is short and outside off. Williamson looks to pull, he does hit it well but it is not right off the middle. Now due to the lack of pace on the delivery, it is Williamson who has to generate all the power. He fails to do so and holes out as Dhawan takes it near the mid-wicket fence. End of a 67-run stand and Williamson departs 11 short of a half ton. 148 more needed.
  • 25.3Loopy ball on middle, the batter pushes it to covers.
  • 25.2Very full and on middle, the ball is jammed out to the bowler.
  • 25.1Dances down the track and then plays it towards long on for a single.
  • 24.6Goes on the back foot and punches it in the direction of the bowler. 4 from the over. New Zealand are taking it deep. 104/3
  • 24.5Edgy! A loopy leg spinner, pitching on off, Williamson is on the front foot to play at it with soft hands but it spins away to take the outside edge. Rolls safely to short third man.
  • 24.4Tossed up ball landing full around leg, Latham sweeps it behind square leg for a single.
  • 24.3Easy going at the moment. Another single as Williamson drives a full ball with the spin to long off.
  • 24.2Quicker, flatter and shorter on middle, Tom gets back and works it through backward square leg for a single.
  • 24.1Floated and landing full on middle, Williamson gets on the front foot and drives it down to long on for a run.
  • 23.6Williamson now strokes it through mid off and gets to the other end. 100 up for the Kiwis. This is a good partnership and the game is nicely poised at the moment. 100/3
  • 23.5The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total.
  • 23.4Flicks it through square leg for a single.
  • 23.3Floated on middle, KW pushes it back uppishly to the right of the bowler who makes a very good stop. Saves a run for his side.
  • 23.2On the shorter side on off, Williamson fails to find the gap on the off side as he hits it to cover-point.
  • 23.1Uses his feet and then clips it through square leg for a single.
  • 22.6Swept and swept nicely but just for a run as the deep square leg fielder fields it. 157 in 162 needed now. 96/3
  • 22.5Flighted and on middle, it is eased down to long on for another run.
  • 22.4Nicely bowled. Full and flighted on middle, Kane stretches forward and defends it back with a straight bat.
  • 22.3A bit short and on middle, Latham gets deep inside the crease and helps it in front of square leg for a run.
  • 22.2Goes on the back foot to a short ball and punches it to long on for a run.
  • 22.1Turns it off his pads behind square leg for one.
  • 21.6Good finish to the over, 6 from it. This is flicked through mid-wicket and the batters run an easy two. 91/3
  • 21.5Steps down the track and hits it past the diving fielder at mid-wicket. A single results.
  • 21.4Down the leg side, Williamson plays the sweep but does not get it as fine as he wanted to hit it. A single taken. The 50-run stand is up, a much-needed one as the two joined forces when New Zealand were in trouble. However, this partnership holds the key for the Kiwis. They need to go on.
  • 21.3Tosses it up on off, the batter is solid in defense.
  • 21.2Flatter and outside off, Latham has stroked it through covers for a run.
  • 21.1Good fielding! Flighted delivery outside off, Williamson strokes it towards covers. Pandya there does really well as he dives to his right and makes a half-stop. Saves three runs for his side as the fielder from long off mops up and keeps it to one.
  • 20.6Misses out there! Short and outside off, Latham gets back and drags his attempted pull shot off the inner half to mid-wicket. 85/3
  • 20.5Full and around leg, Latham goes down and sweeps it through backward square leg for a couple of runs.
  • 20.4Gets forward to a full ball and flicks it to mid-wicket.
  • 20.3A touch short and around off, Kane gets back and plays it down softly towards cover-point for a quick single.
  • 20.2Loopy and full on middle, Kane pushes it back to the bowler.
  • 20.1Tossed up ball around leg, Latham flicks it in front of square leg and picks up a single.
  • 19.6The last ball is punched down to long on for an easy run. 5 from Jadhav's first. 81/3
  • 19.5The batsman drives this through the covers. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 19.5Wide! Very slow and outside off, the batter looks to cut but misses. It has been wided.
  • 19.4Flighted delivery on off, Jadhav gets good drift away from the batsman. Williamson pushes it towards cover. The fielder there misfields. The batsmen think of a run but do not go for it. Maybe that saying 'never run on a misfield' just popped up in their minds.
  • 19.3This is eased down to long off for a single.
  • 19.2Slower through the air on the pads, it is swept fine down the leg side for a single. Could have been a second there but Williamson slips as he completes the first.
  • 19.1Flatter and on middle, Williamson pushes it towards mid on. The fielder at short mid-wicket makes a half-stop and also stops the run.
  • Kedar Jadhav is on now. Spin from both ends.
  • 18.6Turning down the leg side, Tom deflects it off his pads but finds short fine leg. 6 from the over, 22 in the last three. The current pair is settling down. 76/3
  • 18.5Tossed up ball on middle, flicked straight towards mid-wicket.
  • 18.4FOUR! Chahal drags his length short and gets the punishment. Tom Latham picks it very early, pushes his weight on the back foot and pulls it hard and flat over mid-wicket.
  • 18.3Slower through the air this time. It's full and on leg, Kane eases his drive down to long on for a single.
  • 18.2Allows the ball to turn back in from a shorter length around off and then works it through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 18.1Starts with a flatter and shorter ball outside off, Latham punches it from the back foot to covers.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is into the attack now.
  • 17.6Two dots in a row to end a good over for the Kiwis. Almost an action replay of the last delivery, it was on a length around off, the batter works it to mid on. 70/3
  • 17.5Slower ball and it comes back in a little after pitching. Williamson plays it to mid on.
  • 17.4Back of a length around off, Latham punches it through covers. Calls for two but has to settle for one.
  • 17.3On the pads, Williamson flicks it to fine leg for a run. Could have been another boundary this, Williamson will feel he missed out there.
  • 17.2FOUR! Consecutive boundaries! This is even better than the last one. Full and on middle, Williamson plays it with a straight bat through mid on and it races away. 8 from the over already.
  • 17.1FOUR! Poor ball and it has been put away! Short and width on offer outside off, Williamson loves it there as he cuts it through point for a boundary. A good start to the over, they though would want to make it count.
  • 16.6Inside edge, we have seen that many times in this innings. A shortish ball on off, cutting back in, Williamson stays back to play it down but it takes the inside half of his blade and goes to square leg for one. 60/3
  • 16.5Edgy! A length ball on middle, Latham walks forward and tries to flick but closes the face of his bat early. It comes out off the leading edge and rolls through cover-point for a run.
  • 16.4A touch short and on off, Latham stays back and plays it to point.
  • 16.3Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 16.2FOUR! Fine shot! New Zealand will hope that this breaks the shackles. A shade overpitched on middle, Latham without much front foot movement drives it crisply past the bowler for a boundary at long on.
  • 16.1Good length ball on middle, Tom flicks it off his pads to mid-wicket.
  • Drinks break. Great going from India. They have not let the Kiwis off the hook. The new-ball bowlers have done their job and the likes of Pandya and Shankar are also doing a commendable job in the middle overs. The current partnership holds the key for New Zealand in this chase.
  • 15.6A dot to end as the ball is pushed back towards the bowler. 199 more needed in 204 balls. 54/3
  • 15.5On the shorter side, Williamson rocks back and then guides it through point for a brace.
  • 15.4On the pads, it is worked around the corner for a single.
  • 15.3A confident looking punch through covers by Latham and a single is taken.
  • 15.2Dances down the track and tries to go over covers. There is extra bounce though as it hits the splice and goes over cover-point for a single.
  • 15.1Hits the length hard on off, Latham pushes it towards cover for a quick run. The 50 is up for the Kiwis.
  • 14.6Defended off the back foot by the batsman. 49/3
  • 14.5Close! On the fuller side around middle, Williamson looks to drive but gets an inside edge onto his pads. The ball lobs towards the point fielder but lands short.
  • 14.4Goes back to bowling length, Williamson guides it to point.
  • 14.3FOUR! Not in any control though. Pandya bends his back and delivers a sharp short ball on middle. Williamson tries to pull it across the line but it flies off his gloves and goes over Dhoni for a boundary.
  • 14.2Angles in a good length ball on off, Kane taps it down to the off side and eyes a run. Pandya rushes towards the ball and he aborts the idea.
  • 14.1A direct hit needed but the fielder misses! He had more time than he thought there we feel. It's fuller and outside off, Latham strokes it towards point and the batsmen go for a run. Shankar at point makes a good stop with one hand, he then turns 360 degrees and has a shy at the striker's end. Misses by a long way. Had he hit the stumps, Williamson was a long way out. A life for the Kiwi skipper, he would want to make India pay here. The replays show that Shankar got a bit off-balance there while releasing the throw.
  • 13.6Nicely played. Used the angle of the bowler and steers it through cover-point for a single. Good pressure bowling from India, just six runs have come post Powerplay 1. 44/3
  • 13.5Straighter delivery, Latham plays an uppish flick shot but it dies down quickly at mid-wicket.
  • 13.4On a length around off, Tom punches from the back foot but finds covers.
  • 13.3Short and wide outside off, cut through point for a run.
  • 13.2Good effort! Full length ball again, Williamson drives it back and Vijay goes down low to get some fingertips on it. It deflects behind but misses the stumps as Latham rushes back.
  • 13.1Fullish and on middle, pushed back in the direction of the bowler.
  • 12.6Flicks it against the angle but finds the fielder at mid-wicket. 42/3
  • 12.5Almost drags it on! Pandya making things happen here. He lands it around off, Latham tries to drop and run but he ends up getting a bottom edge which goes over the stumps.
  • 12.4A little too straight this time, Williamson works it wide of mid on for an easy run.
  • 12.3On off and on a length! It is blocked. Not giving anything away here are the Indian bowlers. They are bowling really good lines and the lengths.
  • 12.2Good length and on off, Williamson guides it to point.
  • 12.1Misfield! There could have been a possibility of a run out there. Fuller in length around off, Latham strokes it to mid off and takes off for a run. Chahal there fails to collect the ball and the single becomes an easy one.
  • 11.6On the fuller side of things, Williamson times it nicely back to the bowler who makes a good stop in his followthrough. 40/3
  • 11.5A little too straight and it is worked towards fine leg for a single. Off the mark is Latham.
  • 11.4Good length ball again around off, Latham is solid in defense.
  • 11.3Good length delivery around off, Latham pushes it towards cover. He thinks about a run but is quick to drop that idea.
  • 11.2On the fuller side again, Williamson times it through covers and takes a run.
  • 11.1Played to the point region by the batsman. No run.
  • Vijay Shankar is into the attack as well.
  • 10.6This one is pitched outside off, on a length again, Latham confidently gets forward and pushes it to mid off. A wicket maiden from Pandya! 38/3

  • 10.4Angling away from the batsman, Latham covers the line and shoulders arms.
  • 10.3Good length ball around off, Latham gets behind the line and defends it back.
  • Tom Latham's turn to partner his skipper in the middle. 215 needed off 238 balls.
  • 10.2OUT! LBW! Ross Taylor does not bother the scorers a lot and Hardik Pandya strikes in his very first over. Did it with the bat and now starts off brilliantly with the ball. Also, this is a huge wicket as Ross Taylor has been in excellent form. He though gets a very good delivery here. It is pitched on a length around off, jags back in sharply. Taylor does not account for the movement and fails to put bat on ball as he tries to flick. It strikes him on the pads, they appeal and the umpire raises his finger in no time. Taylor starts walking back, has a word with Williamson but it seems that the Kiwi skipper feels Rosco is a goner. Dear me, the replays show something which won't please New Zealand. Ball Tracker finds the ball to be going over the sticks. A chance to review missed. India though won't care and they are right on top now.
  • 10.1Starts off with a length delivery around off, Taylor defends it onto the ground. Good start by Pandya, he needs to keep the pressure building.
  • Powerplay 2 has been signaled! Now a maximum of 4 fielders can be placed outside the ring. Also, Hardik Pandya is on now.
  • 9.6Shami pulls his length back a bit and serves it on off, Williamson transfers his weight on the back foot and mistimes his punch shot to covers. 5-0-14-2, Shami's figures so far. Remarkable! 38/2
  • 9.5Inside edge onto the pads. Very lucky, Kane. Beautiful seam presentation from Shami. Lands it on a length close to off stump, Kane tries playing off the front foot but gets an inside edge onto the pads.
  • 9.4Straighter delivery, Kane clips it off his pads but finds the mid-wicket fielder.
  • 9.3Short in length and outside off, Taylor cuts it off his back foot to third man for a run.
  • 9.2Gets behind the line of the delivery and pushes it back to the bowler.
  • Ross Taylor walks out to the middle.
  • 9.1OUT! Munro runs out of luck! Shami speeds in from 'round the wicket and serves a short and wide delivery outside off. Colin tries to slap it through the line with zero footwork and to his bad luck, it catches the inside edge and cannons onto the stumps. Second wicket for Shami and Munro's poor run of form continues. Got a start today but failed to convert it into a big score.
  • 8.6A dot to end a good over for the hosts! 7 from it. On off, Williamson defends it onto the ground. 37/1
  • 8.5Goes full again, Munro works it around the corner and gets to the other end.
  • 8.4Seam-up delivery this time and it is short around off, Munro looks to pull but is done in by the extra bounce. It goes over the bat.
  • 8.3In the air... but safe! Luck going Munro's way in his 50th ODI and a batsman out of form would surely love luck to be on his side. Kumar continues bowling the slower balls. Munro uses his feet and looks to power it straight back over the bowler's head. He though mistimes it but still hits it well enough to clear mid off. Two taken.
  • 8.2FOUR! In the gap! However, Munro would have had his heart in the mouth for a while. It is on the pads, Munro flicks it uppishly. There are two fielders in the deep but it is between them and into the mid-wicket fence.
  • 8.1Angles it away from off, Munro plays it with a straight bat to mid off.
  • 7.6Length delivery on off, Williamson punches but finds the cover fielder. Quiet going from the Kiwis. 30/1
  • 7.5Good lines from Shami. Keeping it on and around off, not much width to work with, Williamson is also calm at the moment as he pushes it out towards cover-point.
  • 7.4Fullish and on off, Williamson drives it down the ground but finds mid off.
  • 7.3Back of a length delivery on off, Kane goes on his toes and keeps it out on the off side.
  • 7.2Lands it full and around off, Williamson pushes it with an angled bat to point.
  • 7.1A solid back foot punch at covers is saved with a dive by Rohit Sharma. A run is not prevented though.
  • 6.6On the shorter side, Williamson stands tall and guides it to point. 29/1
  • 6.5Another slower one on middle, Munro works it towards mid-wicket and gets to the other end. Slower balls may just be the way to go against Munro.
  • 6.4Well bowled! Munro makes room, Kumar follows him with a slower ball, Colin tries to force it through the off side but gets an outside edge to short third man.
  • 6.3Like that! Full, very full and on off, Munro jams it out to point.
  • 6.2FOUR! Once again the pick-up shot gives Munro the desired result. A length ball on middle, Munro lofts it over mid-wicket and bags a boundary. Bowling too straight to him is bowling to his strengths. Needs to be on the off pole.
  • 6.1Angles it across the left-hander after landing it on off, Munro goes back and keeps it out.
  • 5.6A stifled appeal for an lbw! Shami gets a full length ball to shape back into the batsman. Williamson is stuck inside the crease trying to work it away. Seems there was an inside edge onto the pads. 24/1
  • 5.5Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. No run.
  • 5.4Nearly chops it on! Has got out once in this manner in this series. Shortish and outside off, Kane tries to cut but gets an inside edge past the stumps to fine leg. A couple taken.
  • 5.3That region is blocked. Williamson plays his favourite dab shot but there is a gully in place who makes the stop.
  • 5.2Bat-pad there! A length ball on off, shaping back in a touch, Kane tries to defend it near his front pad but gets an inside edge. It brushes his pads and dies down safely on the leg side.
  • 5.1Full and angling in around off, Williamson covers the line and blocks it safely.
  • 4.6This time he does get it away from the fielder at gully, down towards third man to retain strike. 22/1
  • 4.5Shortens his length a touch, KW defends it to covers.
  • 4.4Another ball which stays low! Good length outside off, Williamson looks to defend but the ball does not bounce as much as the batsman anticipated it to and it sneaks below the bat. Seeing the ball staying low, one may believe this is not going to be an easy chase.
  • 4.3Just around a length outside off, Williamson plays it late, he tries to guide it down to third man but Rohit has a gully in place to stop that shot.
  • 4.2Back of a length on off, Williamson stands tall and punches it to covers.
  • 4.1Uses his feet but is hurried by the short ball, also he is cramped for room as it is bowled on his body. Munro mistimes his pull towards square leg for a run.
  • 3.6Great timing and placement. Williamson leans forward to a length ball and pierces the off side field with a cover drive. Gets off the mark with a couple of runs. 20/1
  • 3.5Back of a length delivery on top of off stump, Kane goes on his back foot again in defense.
  • 3.4A good length ball around off, angling in, Williamson stays back and defends it down.
  • Kane Williamson, the Kiwi skipper, strides out at no. 3.
  • 3.3OUT! Wait on, did that bird flying right across the pitch put Henry off? Maybe, just maybe. A short delivery by Shami, angling in, Nicholls tries to pull but it hurries onto him and he mistimes it uppishly to wide mid on. Kedar Jadhav makes no mistake and Shami draws first blood. 235 needed off 279 balls.
  • 3.2Misses out! Short and wide outside off, there to be hit, Nicholls slaps it through the line but it goes on one bounce to the point fielder.
  • 3.1Good length ball on off, angling in, Henry defends it from the crease and it rolls back. Nicholls immediately looks behind and finds the ball to be quite far away from the stumps.
  • 2.6Length and around off, Munro looks to stroke it on the up but gets an inside edge onto his pads. So despite the maximum, only 7 comes from the over. 18/0
  • 2.5SIX! All the way! Munro may have decided to hit himself into form here. The ball is in his zone, full and on middle, Munro picks it up and sends it sailing over the mid-wicket fence. First of the innings.
  • 2.4Good running by the batsmen! But poor Chahal, he did not attack the ball there, instead waited for it hence, making the single easy. This is worked towards him at mid on and the batsmen scamper across.
  • 2.3A touch fuller this time but it is outside off, left alone. The ball goes on the bounce to Dhoni.
  • 2.2A little too straight this time, HN misses his flick and the ball hits him high on the pads.
  • 2.1Once again this one stays a little low. On middle, Nicholls tries to flick but it hits the inner half of the lower portion of the bat and then onto the pads.
  • 1.6Fine stop by Shankar! A pitched up ball outside off, Henry drives it square of the wicket on the off side and Vijay at point dives across to his left to make an outstanding one-handed stop. Although it's not a clean one. The ball rolls towards Gill at cover-point and they cross for a run. Shubman's attempted shy at the bowler's end hits Nicholls on the legs. 8 from Shami's first over. 11/0
  • 1.5FOUR! Nicely timed! A length ball has been slanted into the batsman around off, Nicholls just brings a straight bat down and strokes it past the diving mid off fielder for a boundary.
  • 1.4The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump.
  • 1.3Almost a drag on! Shami gets a length delivery to cut back into the batsman from outside off, Nicholls goes back to play at it but it takes the inside edge, misses the stumps and races behind towards fine leg. Chahal makes a diving stop in the deep and saves two for India.
  • 1.2Back of a length ball on off, angling in, Nicholls goes on the back foot and defends it to the off side.
  • 1.1Starts his spell from 'round the wicket and angles in a length ball outside off, Munro goes hard at it and gets it away off the inside edge. It rolls in the gap at mid-wicket and they cross.
  • Mohammed Shami to bowl with the other new ball. He has two slip in place.
  • 0.6A dot to end! This one stayed down a little, slightly fuller on off. Nicholls tries to defend off the back foot but it goes off the bottom edge to the keeper. Just three from the first over. 3/0
  • 0.5On the off stump, Nicholls gets right behind the line and blocks it out.
  • 0.4Outside off, had it been Munro he would have thrown his bat at it but Nicholls is more of a batsman who likes to take his time. He makes a leave.
  • 0.3A confident looking drive now towards wide mid off for a single.
  • 0.2In the air... but safe! Munro has come out with intent here. The second ball he faces, he tries to clear the long off fence. It is not off the middle though but hit well enough to clear the infield. Two taken. The Kiwis are underway.
  • 0.1Starts off with a delivery just ahead of a length outside off, Munro goes after it but ends up getting it off the inner half towards the bowler.
  • We're back for the run chase. Colin Munro and Henry Nicholls are the Kiwi openers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to kick off proceedings with the first new ball. All set, let's play...
