Batting: New Zealand

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
1.4FOURShami to Rutherford, no ball, FOUR, Oh dear! Shami knocks the bails off at the bowler's end and it results in a no-ball, full and wide, Rutherford leans and drives it beautifully through cover, top shot that!7/0
6FOURShami to Rutherford, FOUR, that would give him some confidence back, fuller one, in the zone for the drive, does extremely well by presenting the full face of the bat and getting it between the bowler and mid off19/0
9.3OUTIshant to Rutherford, out Caught by Vijay!! It was always looking like there was a wicket round the corner, with the way the openers were struggling to be decisive, it was a good delivery this, short and raising as it went towards Rutherford, he hung his bat tentatively, though with soft hands, got the glove and popped to Vijay at first slip, Rutherford was in two minds again but made the decision tad too late, plenty of time for Vijay to dive forward and catch it safely. Another failure for Rutherford. Rutherford c Vijay b Ishant 12(34) [4s-2]23/1
11.2OUTIshant to Fulton, out Lbw!! Steve Davis is convinced this time around, terrific one to back up what he did in the previous delivery, similar mistake by Fulton but too far across this time, rapped on the pad in front of middle and the umpire took no time to make this decision. Ishant is delighted and what a change of fortunes for him after being the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. NZ are two down and India are right on track. Fulton lbw b Ishant 13(31)26/2
13.4OUTIshant to Latham, out Caught by Dhoni!! Ishant is on a roll here. Got to feel for the debutant. Great delivery again, on a length, in the corridor of uncertainty making Latham play at it, it was a tentative poke, only finds the outside edge ending up in Dhoni's gloves, New Zealand are rocked back very early. Latham c Dhoni b Ishant 0(8)26/3
15FOURZaheer to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, rare bad delivery from Zaheer today, half volley, dispatched through cover with ease, Brendon McCullum doesn't mind the pressure, by the looks of it, good breather for the Kiwis35/3
22.1OUTShami to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by Ravindra Jadeja!! That's a massive wicket in the scheme of things for India. New Zealand captain, the in form McCullum looking to drive on the up, couldn't quite get under it, Jadeja was rightly positioned at silly mid off, he just put his hand up and the ball stuck, that was going far too quickly and Jadeja's reactions confirm that he didn't really pick the ball, end of Baz nevertheless and Shami gets a much deserved wicket. Brendon McCullum c Ravindra Jadeja b Shami 8(19) [4s-1]45/4
24FOURIshant to Williamson, FOUR, short, pulled with disdain, breaks the shackles and gets a boundary, rare bad delivery from Ishant today49/4
26.3FOURShami to Corey Anderson, FOUR, lucky shot! A well directed bouncer from Shami, Anderson takes it on and goes for the pull, the ball takes the top edge and flies to the left of Dhoni and into the fine leg fence55/4
29.4FOURZaheer to Corey Anderson, FOUR, fuller and around off-stump, Anderson takes couple of steps down the wicket and lofts it to the vacant mid-on region, that was a calculated shot as he knew there was no one there71/4
31.1SIXIshant to Corey Anderson, SIX, Anderson is growing in confidence, greets Ishant by depositing him over the long on fence, pitched up just outside off, Anderson extends his amrs and goes through with the shot79/4
31.3FOURIshant to Corey Anderson, FOUR, Ishant does not learn from his mistake, overpitched outside off, Anderson drills the drive to the long off fence, ball went like a tracer bullet84/4
33.4OUTIshant to Corey Anderson, out Caught by Kohli!! Ishant picks up his fourth and sends the dangerous looking Anderson back to the pavillion. This was a good length delivery that nips back in, Anderson stays rooted to the crease and tries to work it to the on-side, but only manages an inside edge onto the pads, the ball balloons towards the slip cordon, where Kohli takes the easiest of catches. Corey Anderson c Kohli b Ishant 24(43) [4s-3 6s-1]84/5
35.2OUTIshant to Watling, out Caught by Rohit!! Ishant gets his 5th 5-fer in Tests. This was a length delivery around off, Watling comes forward to defend but the extra bounce takes the shoulder of the bat and flies to Rohit at second slip, who hangs on to a sharp catch. Watling goes without troubling the scorers. Watling c Rohit b Ishant 0(4)86/6
36.3FOURZaheer to Neesham, FOUR, half volley on off and middle, Neesham presents a straight bat and drives it beautifully straight down the ground, that should give the debutant some confidence92/6
37.2FOURIshant to Williamson, FOUR, excellent shot! Overpitched delivery on middle, Williamson drives it straight down the ground, the timing on that was simply superb96/6
38.1FOURShami to Williamson, FOUR, loosener from Shami, short and outside off, Williamson had all the time in the world to rock back and punch it to deep extra cover, the timing takes it to the fence. That brings up the 100 for the Kiwi's103/6
38.5FOURShami to Neesham, FOUR, Neesham looks to be in good touch, half volley outside off, Neesham creams the drive beautifully past mid-off, the timing was exquisite on that110/6
39.5FOURIshant to Williamson, FOUR, trademark Williamson shot, shortens the length outside off, Williamson stands up on his toes and punches it to the deep extra cover fence116/6
40FOURIshant to Williamson, FOUR, full and outside off, Williamson frees his arms and drives it in the air to the right of mid-off, that was very unlikely of Williamson120/6
40.1FOURShami to Neesham, FOUR, runs have started to flow freely, pitched up outside off, Neesham opens the face and drives it square of the wicket, the ball races off the turf124/6
40.4FOURShami to Neesham, FOUR, banged in mid-way down the pitch, Neesham swivels and muscles the pull behind square for a boundary128/6
41.3FOURZaheer to Williamson, FOUR, length delivery outside off, Williamson comes on the front foot and drives it on the up past mid-off, both batsmen getting the boundaries quite easily132/6
42.4OUTShami to Williamson, out Caught by Rohit!! Finally, Williamson's luck runs out. This was slightly back of a length and in the corridor of uncertainty, Williamson had to play at it and he only manages an edge to second slip, where Rohit takes a good low catch diving to his left. He walks off with a smile on his face. Williamson c Rohit b Shami 47(100) [4s-6]133/7
44FOURZaheer to Neesham, FOUR, misses the yorker by couple of inches which is enough for Neesham to lean forward and whip it to the deep mid wicket fence139/7
45FOURShami to Neesham, FOUR, Neesham does not seem like he is playing his first Test, takes full toll off the overpitched delivery as he drills the drive to deep extra cover146/7
45.5SIXZaheer to Southee, SIX, in the zone for Southee, length and around off, he clears his front leg and swings it over the long on fence for a maximum154/7
46.1FOURShami to Southee, FOUR, real long hop from Shami, Southee rocks back and pulls it to deep mid wicket, the ball goes on the bounce and into the fence159/7
46.3FOURShami to Neesham, FOUR, half volley on the pads, Neesham leans forward and flicks it in the air but over the man at mid wicket, the ball raced away to the ropes165/7
46.5OUTShami to Neesham, out Caught by Dhoni!! Shami ends this entertaining innings from the debutant. It was a length delivery slanted across the left-hander, Neesham was in two minds whether to play or leave it, in the end the ball runs off the face of the bat to Dhoni, who does not drop those. Neesham c Dhoni b Shami 33(35) [4s-7]165/8
50.4SIXRavindra Jadeja to Southee, SIX, Southee's not going to hold back, dances down the track and muscles it over the long on boundary, too easy!174/8
51SIXRavindra Jadeja to Southee, SIX, take another, says Southee, slog sweeps it this time, the ball went miles up in the air, beats Rahane at the deep mid wicket boundary, six more!180/8
51.3OUTIshant to Southee, out Caught by Vijay!! Soft dismissal that! Southee was expecting another short ball, but Ishant dished a full toss, the ball was dying on Southee as he played at it, probably a tad early as well, ends up lobbing a catch to short mid wicket where Vijay takes a good catch diving forward. Everything seemed to happen on slow motion here. Southee c Vijay b Ishant 32(32) [4s-1 6s-3]184/9
52.5OUTShami to Boult, out Caught by Pujara!! That's the end of the New Zealand innings. Superb catch by Pujara again, the earlier one he took off Ishant was equally good but off a no-ball, but this one's a legitemate delivery, Boult was on the backfoot closing the face of the bat, the ball went quickly to the left of Pujara, who dived and grabbed it with both hands eventually. Boult c Pujara b Shami 2(5)192/10

2OUTSouthee to Vijay, out Caught by Watling!! Another failure for Vijay as Southee strikes in his first over. Poor judgement that, went a little forward and drew the bat close to the body to shoulder arms, the ball nipped back sharply and looks like it just kissed the bottom of the glove, no real confirmation on hot spot but there was definitely some noice and that's the end of Vijay as the ball thuds into the keeper's gloves.Vijay c Watling b Southee 2(6)2/1
2.3FOURBoult to Dhawan, FOUR, gets some width and Dhawan moves his feet well, drives it through cover and times it really well, that's how he should be going about his innings on this wicket, aggressively!6/1
3.5FOURSouthee to Dhawan, byes, FOUR, Jeez! There's a lot of pace and bounce on this wicket, Southee digs it short, the ball goes over the leaping keeper and bounces away to the boundary15/1
5.1FOURSouthee to Dhawan, FOUR, width on offer, fuller in length for Dhawan to free his arms, Dhawan goes hard at it and clubs it between the bowler and mid off to find his 2nd boundary19/1
9.1FOURWagner to Dhawan, FOUR, edged but safe! Though Dhawan deliberately opened the face, that went off the outer half between the third slip and gully who dived to his right to no avail, the ball rolls to the third man fence31/1
10.1FOURBoult to Pujara, FOUR, wrong line from Boult, easy pickings for Pujara, glances it off his hips and beats the fine leg fielder for a boundary35/1
17.3FOURWagner to Dhawan, FOUR, half tracker outside off, Dhawan latches on to it in a flash, he rocks back and cuts it hard to the sweeper cover fence51/1
17.5FOURWagner to Dhawan, FOUR, cracking shot! This was banged in mid-way down the pitch, the line was on leg-stump, Dhawan swivels and muscles the pull wide of the man at fine leg, the ball rocketed away to the fence55/1
20.3FOURWagner to Pujara, FOUR, you won't see much better on-drives than this, pitched up on middle and leg, Pujara presents the straight bat and drives it past mid-on, he also enjoyed that shot63/1
21.2FOURCorey Anderson to Dhawan, FOUR, overpitched outside off, Dhawan comes on the front foot and drives it in the air, he just about evades the man at backward point, who went for the catch with both hands67/1
22.1FOURWagner to Dhawan, FOUR, full on middle and leg, Wagner missed the yorker by an inch, Dhawan is severe as he flicks it beautifully to the deep mid wicket fence, Boult gives chase but in vain74/1
22.2FOURWagner to Dhawan, FOUR, width provided outside off, Dhawan is quick to rock back and cut it powerfully, the ball bullets away to the square third man fence, that brings up his 3rd fifty plus score in Tests78/1
22.3SIXWagner to Dhawan, SIX, extraordinary batting from Dhawan, digs it in short and outside off, Dhawan hops up and upper cuts it over the third man fence, he used the pace of the bowler to good effect84/1
23.3FOURCorey Anderson to Dhawan, FOUR, Dhawan may have shifted gears here, short and outside off, it was asking to be put away and Dhawan does not miss out as he unleashes the cut shot, the ball races away to the deep backward point fence89/1
24.2OUTBoult to Pujara, out Lbw!! This time Boult has his man. Pujara vigilance comes to an end. Another indipper from a length, Pujara comes forward and plays down the wrong line, the ball beats the inside edge and hits him on the back pad. Umpire Kettleborough took his time before raising his finger. Height may have been a issue there. Pujara lbw b Boult 19(59) [4s-2]89/2
27.2FOURNeesham to Dhawan, FOUR, short and width on offer, Dhawan latches on to it as he chops the cut, the ball bounces off the turf over the gully fielder and races away to the third man fence98/2
30FOURSouthee to Dhawan, FOUR, overpitched on off, Dhawan comes on the front foot and drives it with the full face of the bat past mid-on, there was no follow through of the shot, it was just a mere push, the timing takes it to the fence108/2
34.3FOURBoult to Ishant, FOUR, back of a length around off, Sharma opens the face and plays it with soft hands as he guides it past the slip cordon for a boundary to third man, Fulton was the man who let the ball go past him127/2
34.4FOURBoult to Ishant, FOUR, errs in line and bowls it on the pads, Sharma glances it fine and beats the man in the deep quite easily131/2
35.5FOURCorey Anderson to Dhawan, FOUR, short and width provided, Dhawan does not miss out on those as he rocks back and dispatches it to the deep backward point fence137/2
36.3FOURBoult to Ishant, FOUR, half volley outside off, Sharma leans forward and plays the perfect cover drive to deep extra cover, any top-order batsmen would be proud of that shot. The 50-run partnership between these two comes up with that boundary141/2
37OUTBoult to Ishant, out Caught by Watling!! At last New Zealand have got rid of the nightwatchman. This was too full and outside off, teasing Sharma to have a go, he does go after it and manages to get a healthy nick through to Watling, who dives to his right and takes a one-handed stunner. Sharma walks back after doing a good job. Ishant c Watling b Boult 26(50) [4s-3]141/3
40.4FOURSouthee to Dhawan, FOUR, good length ball just outside off, Dhawan comes on the front foot and punches it with an open face, the timing was superb as the ball races across the turf to the deep extra cover fence. He is into the 90's148/3
41.2FOURCorey Anderson to Kohli, FOUR, on a length outside off, Kohli comes forward and drives it on the up past mid-off, the timing and placement just too good from Kohli154/3

43OUTSouthee to Dhawan, out Caught by Watling!! Southee does not let Dhawan get to his 3rd Test hundred. This was a good length delivery just outside off, no swing on that, Dhawan goes chasing after it and edges it to Watling, who takes a good catch to his left. Dhawan walks back to the pavillion after a well compiled innings. Dhawan c Watling b Southee 98(127) [4s-14 6s-1]162/4
45.1OUTNeesham to Rohit, out Bowled!! Neesham gets his first Test wicket. Sharma goes for a duck. This was too full and well outside off, Sharma goes searching for it and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. He was probably looking for his first runs and pushed at it bit too hard. New Zealand have certainly come back into the match with that wicket. Rohit b Neesham 0(3)165/5
46.2FOURSouthee to Kohli, FOUR, bouncer on the body, Kohli rocks back, swivels and pulls it handsomely to backward square leg, the ball bounces a couple of times before going into the fence169/5
47.2FOURNeesham to Rahane, FOUR, half volley outside off, Rahane presses forward and drives it beautifully past mid-off, the ball races away to the boundary, that should give him confidence175/5
47.5FOURNeesham to Rahane, FOUR, back of a length outside off, Rahane goes on the back foot, gets on top of the bounce and punches it to sweeper cover, the timing takes the ball away from the fielder who was giving chase179/5

52FOURWagner to Kohli, FOUR, too full and on the stumps, Kohli gets his front leg out of the way and flicks it to deep mid wicket, the ball races across to the boundary. The scores are now level192/5
53.5FOURWagner to Rahane, FOUR, back of a length outside off, Rahane rocks back and punches it beautifully to sweeper cover, the timing was superb as the ball races across the turf199/5
58FOURNeesham to Rahane, FOUR, harmless full toss. Rahane plays it with a slightly open face. Not well controlled but it races through between slip and gully to the boundary. He would have wanted it to go to the right of gully though206/5
61.1FOURNeesham to Kohli, FOUR, looked a boundary as soon as it hit the bat. Top shot really. It was full and straight. Kohli just presents a straight bat and gets it scurrying down to the long on fence213/5
65FOURWagner to Rahane, FOUR, Rahane is lucky again. A big edge is found but went right between the slip and fully221/5
67.2FOURNeesham to Rahane, byes, FOUR, dug in way too short, it goes above the leaping Watling and into the boundary226/5
68.1OUTWagner to Kohli, out Caught by Rutherford!! Kohli will be livid with himself here. The plan was on for more than 5 overs now. There were two short covers and New Zealand were feeding him with deliveries outside off. He left many but finally lost patience and drove this one uppishly. Rutherford takes the sharp chance and the Kiwis are rightly ecstatic. The run flow ahd been stemmed and now they have the big wicket as well. Kohli c Rutherford b Wagner 38(93) [4s-4]228/6
69.1FOURNeesham to Rahane, FOUR, just all class that from Rahane. Full and slanted in. Rahane does not move much but presents a dead straight bat to punch it to the long on fence. He liked that shot, holds the pose as the ball races along the carpet234/6
70.1FOURWagner to Dhoni, FOUR, he's good in these situations is MS Dhoni. This was full and outside off. Dhoni wastes no time in bringing out a flourishing cover drive. He's pumped in some urgency since his arrival240/6
70.2FOURWagner to Dhoni, FOUR, banged in short now. Dhoni moves across and pulls it through mid wicket. Boult runs across from deep square leg and lands awkwardly on a dry patch as he tries to slide. Could have done some damage to his knee there244/6
70.3FOURWagner to Dhoni, FOUR, more runs. Short and wide outside off. Dhoni throws his bat out to cut it hard for the 3rd boundary on the trot. Good batting from MSD248/6
70.4FOURWagner to Dhoni, FOUR, Make that 4 in a row! Wagner went back to over the wicket and kept it full outside off. Dhoni is in a murderous mood though. He takes a stride out and thumps it over Rahane for another boundary252/6
76.3FOURNeesham to Dhoni, FOUR, short and wide outside off. Dhoni plays this late and gets it well wide of the man at deep point. Puzzling tactics from the hosts275/6
78.1OTHERNeesham to Rahane, 1 run, good length and outside off, Rahane punches it to deep point and brings up his 3rd Test fifty. He's not been flashy but has delivered brilliantly for his skipper279/6
80.5FOURBoult to Dhoni, FOUR, take that for intent. The skipper skips down the track and carves it through cover. The new ball speeds away to the fence285/6
82.3FOURBoult to Rahane, FOUR, angled away, Rahane guides it with an open face and gets it down to the third man fence292/6
83.2FOURSouthee to Rahane, FOUR, elegantly played through sweeper cover. It was just about full. Rahane leans into the drive and creams it beautifully299/6
84.4FOURBoult to Rahane, FOUR, top-notch shot from Jinks! This was pitched up and outside off, Rahane transfers his weight forward and punches it to the long off fence. Supreme timing309/6
85.1SIXSouthee to Dhoni, SIX, BANG! This was a length delivery outside off, Dhoni skates down the pitch and slams it over long-off315/6
85.3OTHERSouthee to Dhoni, 2 runs, picked off the pads to square leg. That raises MS Dhoni's aggressive fifty317/6
87.2FOURSouthee to Dhoni, FOUR, take that for a response as Dhoni nails the upper cut this time. This was shortish and outside off, Dhoni hops up and ramps it over to third man for a one bounce four323/6
87.4FOURSouthee to Dhoni, FOUR, length delivery outside off, Dhoni opens the face a touch and illustrates a flailing upper cut, the ball reaches the the third man fence again327/6
88OTHERSouthee to Dhoni, 1 run, good length delivery just outside off, Dhoni goes on the back foot and nurdles a single to mid wicket. That notches up the 100 of the partnership as well328/6
88.3FOURBoult to Rahane, FOUR, fuller and outside off, Rahane opens the face of the bat a touch and places it to the sweeper cover fence. Is his bat made of fluid?333/6
88.4FOURBoult to Rahane, FOUR, crunched! This was also pitched up and outside off, Rahane brings out another delectable drive, it has enough impetus to travel to the sweeper cover fence337/6
89.1FOURNeesham to Dhoni, FOUR, cracking shot! Chants of Dhoni Dhoni reverberate the stadium. This was a length delivery on middle, Dhoni slaps it over the bowler's head341/6
91FOURBoult to Rahane, FOUR, slightly back of a length and width on the platter, Rahane jackpots it as he waits for it and cuts it handsomely behind point347/6
92.2OUTBoult to Dhoni, out Caught by Watling!! Another short one and Mahendra Singh Dhoni yields. He was on his haunches straightaway. Dhoni gets far too across the off-stump and aims to fend this testing bouncer, instead he gloves it to the keeper. He walks back to a rousing reception. Dhoni c Watling b Boult 68(86) [4s-9 6s-1]348/7
92.3FOURBoult to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, good length delivery snaking down leg, all Jaddu had to do was to help it across along its way to long leg352/7
94FOURNeesham to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, short of length delivery outside off, Ravindra Jadeja gets on top of the bounce and connects the pull, the rich timing reduces Ish Sodhi's dive in the deep to a mere footnote. Neesham is not impressed though364/7
94.4FOURBoult to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, overpitched on off, Ravindra Jadeja matches Rahane's timing as he punches it with a straight bat, Baz hustles across and puts a gallant dive as well but the ball travels to the long off fence369/7
94.5FOURBoult to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, on a length and outside off, Ravindra Jadeja helps himself to another four with an uppish cut over the slip cordon373/7
96.1FOURWagner to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, on a length and just a smidge outside off, Ravindra Jadeja slogs it off the bottom of the bat to the cow-corner fence381/7
96.2FOURWagner to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, expert placement from Jaddu! This was back of a length and outside off, Ravindra Jadeja stays in the crease and runs it away between slip and gully385/7
96.3OUTWagner to Ravindra Jadeja, out Caught by Fulton!! Wagner is in full stare out there. He gives Jaddu as send off as well. This was a teasing good length delivery in the channel of uncertainty, Ravindra Jadeja cannot resist his temptation as he pokes at it. Fulton at second slip showcases his reflexes with a razor sharp take. Ravindra Jadeja c Fulton b Wagner 26(16) [4s-6]385/8
96.5FOURWagner to Zaheer, FOUR, fuller and outside off, Zaheer goes for a banana-peel slash but he only manages a thickish outside edge to third man. Profitable results, nevertheless389/8
98FOURCorey Anderson to Rahane, FOUR, good length delivery just outside off, Rahane tries to manufacture a shot to the leg-side. The outcome is a leading edge that travels to the third man fence396/8
99.1FOURCorey Anderson to Rahane, FOUR, Rahane you beauty! Maiden ton for the Mumbai batsman. He raises his helmet and soaks in the applause from the crowd. Subdued celebration there, nothing extravagant befitting his cool disposition. He reaches the landmark with a strong pull to the deep mid wicket fence406/8
99.5FOURCorey Anderson to Rahane, FOUR, pitched up on the pads, Rahane picks it up from there and flicks it over mid-wicket. Absolute nonchalance410/8
100FOURCorey Anderson to Rahane, FOUR, Woah! Another scintillating shot! This was on a length and outside off, Rahane lifts it over cover, no real extravagant flourish. It was all rich timing and precise placement414/8
100.3SIXWagner to Rahane, SIX, Wagner bangs this mid-way down the pitch, the climbed up alarmingly. Rahane though was unperturned as ne brings out a brilliant hook over backward square leg for a 93 metre six.422/8
101.1OUTSouthee to Rahane, out Caught by Boult!! Geez! Corker of a catch from Boult! This was on a length and well outside off, Rahane slices it uppishly. Just when the ball seemed to die down, Boult rushes across from sweeper cover, makes a sprawling dive and pulls off a blinder of a one-handed catch. He thrusts his right hand out and gobbled it up. Baz hugs Boult whilst Rahane acknowledges the cheers before trooping off. Rahane c Boult b Southee 118(158) [4s-17 6s-1]423/9
101.4FOURSouthee to Zaheer, FOUR, Zaheer flays at a length delivery outside off with the thickish edge travelling to the third man fence429/9
102FOURSouthee to Zaheer, FOUR, Gotcha says Zak. Finally, he gets hold of the big heave through mid-wicket433/9
102.3FOURWagner to Zaheer, FOUR, Zak is having some fun here. This was slightly back of a length and on off, Zaheer hoicks it across the line and deposits it to the long-on fence438/9
102.4OUTWagner to Zaheer, out Caught by Watling!! Oops, Zak's cameo has been cut short as Wagner snares his 50th Test scalp. No evidence of cutting the crease there. This was shortish and outside off, Zaheer throws his bat at it, the outside edge is grasped by BJ Watling. India though claim a more than handy lead of 246 runs.. Zaheer c Watling b Wagner 22(19) [4s-4]438/10

1.3OUTZaheer to Fulton, out Lbw!! Misjudgement from Fulton as he prishes without offering a shot. Zak is pumped up. This was a good length delivery curling in, Fulton, plays for the away movement and shoulders arms, the ball hits him on the front pad. The umpire raises his dreaded finger to sigal the doom of Fulton. It would have gone on to clip the off-stump. Hawk-Eye confirms the same as well. Fulton lbw b Zaheer 1(6)1/1
3.5FOURZaheer to Rutherford, FOUR, crsip shot! This was a genuine half volley outside off, Rutherford leans forward and drives it on the up to banish it to the long off fence9/1

7.3FOURIshant to Rutherford, FOUR, slightly short and close to the off-stump, Rutherford plays a neat back cut to the third man fence21/1
10.4OUTZaheer to Williamson, out Caught by Dhoni!! Wow, Zak has got the big wicket. The in-form Williamson goes back early.
