Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
2OUTRampaul to Ryder, out Caught by Darren Bravo!! Not a sweet return to International cricket for Ryder. This was full and outside off, there was plenty of width provided, Ryder stays in the crease and smacks the drive in the air straight to cover, where Bravo bends down and takes a good low catch. Perfect start for West Indies. Ryder c Darren Bravo b Rampaul 0(5)2/1
4OUTRampaul to Guptill, out Lbw!! Another come back man does not trouble much. This was full and jags back in sharply, Guptill comes forward to defend but fails to get any bat as he is rapped on the pads, the ball would have gone on to crash into middle-stump, the umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger. Guptill lbw b Rampaul 2(17)3/2
6.4OUTJ Holder to Ross Taylor, out Ross Taylor Run Out!! West Indies have got to the big fish. This was full and angling in, Taylor leans forward to flick but gets an inside edge onto the pads, the ball rolls to the leg-side, he wanted the single and was half way down the pitch but Williamson was not interested, Holder was aware to the situation as he runs across and hits the stump direct at the strikers end, even a dive from Taylor could not save him. New Zealand are in big trouble. Ross Taylor run out (J Holder) 3(10)10/3
10.5FOURSammy to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, just a touch short on middle, McCullum is quick to rock back and pull it, the ball goes off the top edge into the backward square leg fence, believe it or not this is the first boundary of the innings26/3
11SIXSammy to Brendon McCullum, SIX, this was well short and asking to be put away, McCullum does miss out as he goes on the back foot and muscles the pull just over the man at deep square leg for the first maximum32/3
11.1OUTJ Holder to Williamson, out Caught by Ramdin!! The bowling change has worked as Holder gets his first. This was full and just outside off, Williamson goes for the drive away from the body, but the late movement takes the edge and goes at a nice height to Ramdin who collects an easy catch. New Zealand are tottering now. Williamson c Ramdin b J Holder 8(22)32/4
12FOURJ Holder to Corey Anderson, FOUR, excellent shot! This was length delivery outside off, Anderson frees his arms as he crashes the drive on the up wide of mid-off for his first boundary36/4
14.1FOURSammy to Corey Anderson, FOUR, not a bad delivery, it was on a length outside off, Anderson was quick to pick up the length and pull it off the front foot to the deep mid wicket fence47/4
14.5FOURSammy to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, too full and outside off, McCullum comes on the front foot and digs the drive past a diving backward point fielder, there was no sweeper and the ball rolls away to the fence52/4
17OUTDwayne Bravo to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Simmons!! Waht was Anderson thinking there? This was a fuller length ball outside off, some extra bounce as well, Anderson goes for the loft and due to the extra bounce gets it high on the bat straight down Simmons throat at long off who takes the simplest of catches. Corey Anderson c Simmons b Dwayne Bravo 13(21) [4s-2]57/5
17.3FOURNarine to Ronchi, FOUR, overpitched outside off, Ronchi leans forward and caresses the drive past the man at mid-off, that should give him some confidence62/5
18.4DROPPEDDwayne Bravo to Brendon McCullum, no run, Dropped! Would you believe it! It is Sammy who puts it down. This was short and outside off, McCullum rocks back and cuts it hard but straight to Sammy at backward point who puts down a tough chance but after blinders in the third Test they expect him to take that64/5
19.1OUTNarine to Ronchi, out Caught by Charles!! Narine strikes, to send back Ronchi. This was tossed up on middle and leg, Ronchi goes on his knees and sweeps but he finds the man at long leg to perfection, where Charles takes a comfortable catch.

20.4OTHERDwayne Bravo to Neesham, no run, on a length and nipping away arouund off, Neesham comes forward to defend but is beaten by the away movement, the ball goes off the back pad to Ramdin but the umpire thinks it was off the outside edge and gave it out, but Neesham reviewed and got it right as well67/6
24OTHERNarine to Brendon McCullum, leg byes, 1 run, tossed up delivery turns back in sharply, McCullum comes slightly forward and looks to defend but misses as the ball strikes him on the pads, the umpire was quick to say not-out but they go for the review, the Hawk-Eye showed that the impact was umpires call, so the only review allowed is wasted by the visitors76/6
24.5FOURDwayne Bravo to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, McCullum gets to 5000 ODI runs. He is the third New Zealand player to do so. This was a length delivery outside off, McCullum gives the charge and hammers it to the sweeper cover fence82/6
25.2FOURNarine to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, flighted delivery on middle, McCullum gets on his knees and tries to sweep, the ball goes off the top edge to the long leg fence, he lost balance as he played that shot87/6

26.4OUTDwayne Bravo to Neesham, out Caught by Darren Bravo!! The two brothers combine to get rid of Neesham. This was a length delivery just outside off, Neesham comes on the front foot and drives it on the up to cover, where lil Bravo dives forward and takes a spectacular catch inches from the ground. The umpires asked him to wait to check whether it was a clean catch the third confirms it was and Neesham walks back. Neesham c Darren Bravo b Dwayne Bravo 10(28) [4s-1]93/7
28.1FOURDwayne Bravo to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, touch short and outside off, Brendon is quick to rock back and pulls it hard to the deep mid wicket fence, that was not off the middle but had enough to reach the fence98/7

This was a length delivery on middle and leg, Brendon gives the charge and tries to flick but misses as he is rapped on the pads, Bravo kept appealing and the umpire obliged by giving it OUT. But, Brendon was quick to take the review but the Hawk-Eye showed that it was hitting leg-stump. The ball had to travel a long way and he would feel done in with that decision. Brendon McCullum lbw b Dwayne Bravo 51(57) [4s-5 6s-1]104/8
32.5OUTDwayne Bravo to Mills, out Caught by Sammy!! Dwayne Bravo picks up his fourth wicket.

1.5OUTMcClenaghan to K Powell, out Bowled!! McClenaghan has got it right. This was a good length ball that pitches on off and comes back, Powell makes a poor judgement as he shoulders arms to that and has his middle-stump knocked back.

20.1OUTMills to Deonarine, out Bowled!! Mills gets his second wicket.
