IND179(39.2ov)NZ180/4(37.1ov)

New Zealand beat India by 6 wickets

37.1Yadav to Nicholls

1
It is all over here in this warm-up game! NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 6 WICKETS! A very funny way to get to the win though. A flighted ball on the pads, Nicholls mistimes his drive to mid on and runs through. The fielder there scores a direct hit but the batsman was well in. The umpire does not even need to take it upstairs, thus bringing an end to a one-sided encounter!

36.6Jadeja to Blundell

0
A watchful defense from Tom onto the surface.

36.5Jadeja to Blundell

0
Flatter on off, defended back to the bowler by Blundell.

36.4Jadeja to Taylor

W
OUT! What an anti-climax! Taylor is walking back with 1 run needed! A flighted ball outside off, Taylor reaches out and looks to drive but the ball holds slightly in the pitch. The ball goes uppishly straight to Kohli at cover who takes an easy catch. A new man will have to come in for just a run to be scored! Jadeja has a had good day personally even though his team did not.

NOT OUT! Floated on off and middle, Nicholls comes down the track and strokes it to long on for a run. The throw is at the keeper's end. Dinesh Karthik takes the bails off and Taylor was a bit relaxed. The umpire takes it upstairs just to be sure and replays show that he was indeed in.

Oh, close! Quicker on off, Nicholls looks to defend. He does so but the ball bumps and looks to go on and hit the stump. Nicholls kicks it the first time but it is still close to the stumps so he does so again.

0
On middle and leg and spinning in to the batsman. Nicholls looks to flick but misses and the ball hits him high on the thigh pad.

29.5Chahal to Williamson

W
OUT! First wicket for spinner in this game. Chahal bowls a leg spinner which is slower through the air, Williamson looks to flick it against the spin but gets a top edge which lobs towards point. Rohit Sharma comes ahead and takes an easiest of catches. Chahal is having a giggle about it. Doubt this wicket will change the winner of this game.
