New Zealand v. West Indies

New Zealand v West Indies ODI Series 2013/2014

Saxton Oval, Nelson: Saturday 4 January 2014 11:00 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: New Zealand win by 58 runs (D/L method)

West Indies 1st innings

End of Over 34 (7 runs)
Bowler: Mitchell McClenaghan
West Indies: 134-5 (rr 3.94)

33.4
Four Runs
FOUR! McClenaghan to Bravo. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. A welcome boundary for the West Indies and possibly a welcome break for them too as the rain gets a little too heavy for the umpires liking. It doesn't look promising as far as a restart is concerned, and as it stands West Indies are 58 runs behind the D/L par score.
After a delay of about an hour the umpires call it a day, which gives New Zealand a comfortable victory. The visitors never really recovered after a disastrous start and the spinners tied them down to the extent that they were never with the run rate during that chase. Guptill is given the man of the match award, richly deserved after fighting his way through the opening spells of Best and Holder. New Zealand now lead the series 2-1.

33.3
One Run
McClenaghan to Ramdin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Anderson.

33.2
One Run
McClenaghan to Bravo. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot dropped, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Taylor.

33.1
Leg Bye
APPEAL! McClenaghan to Ramdin. Length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to slips for no runs, fielded by Guptill, appeal made for L.B.W. Initially that looked good, but a few too many doubts for Bowden to raise the finger, height being the principle concern.

End of Over 33 (3 runs)
Bowler: Nathan McCullum
West Indies: 127-5 (rr 3.85)

32.6
No Runs
McCullum to Bravo. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Guptill. McCullum finishes with figures of 10-0-30-1 and the economical spell from the two spinners has virtually taken the game away from West Indies, who now need over 9 runs an over.
