BALL BY BALL
Ov 20: 6 0 W 0 1 1 ( 8 Runs, 1 Wkt )
19.6 - T Boult to B Kumar
Full on middle, pushed towards long on for one. That ends the match, with NEW ZEALAND WINNING BY 40 RUNS.
19.5 - T Boult to J Bumrah
Oohh... nearly a five-for! Outside off, Bumrah pushes at it and gets an inside edge, which just misses the stumps en route towards fine leg! Just a single.
19.4 - T Boult to J Bumrah
A yorker to start, right on middle, Bumrah digs it out towards point and sets off for a single but is sent back.
19.3 - T Boult to M Dhoni
OUT! Mr. Butter Fingers takes it! Santner was the one to drop Dhoni in the previous over and it is Santner who denies MS his half century. A short ball, Dhoni looks to pull but gets a top edge which just spoons to square leg. Mitchell Santner does not have to move an inch and takes a sitter. A forgetful innings for Dhoni.
19.2 - T Boult to M Dhoni
That is his fifty! Oops, not yet. Full and outside off. MS smashes it towards long off but DOES NOT TAKE the single.
19.1 - T Boult to M Dhoni
SIX! Oh there is one more thing to look forward to. Can Dhoni hit six sixes and generate some interest in this game? A length ball, Dhoni swings it miles over mid-wicket! Just that it has come years too late.
Ov 19: 4 2 2 2 0wd 4 1 ( 16 Runs )
18.6 - A Milne to M Dhoni
A short ball, pulled through mid-wicket for a single to keep strike. 16 from the over but this can be considered an aberration. He went for 14 in his three overs before this and pretty much stifled India for runs.
18.5 - A Milne to M Dhoni
FOUR! A full toss now, Dhoni whips it through square leg and gets a boundary.
18.5 - A Milne to M Dhoni
WIDE. A slower ball, down the leg side, short in length, Dhoni looks to pull but misses.
18.4 - A Milne to M Dhoni
On middle, pushes it towards long on for a couple.
18.3 - A Milne to M Dhoni
No. That should end the match barring any miracles. It is a DROPPED catch for the statisticians. Dhoni swings it towards long off and Mitchell Santner comes charging in to his left. Slides and should have taken it but his butter fingers do not support him. Two runs taken.
18.2 - A Milne to M Dhoni
A fine full ball outside off, MS swings hard and gets it off the inner half of the bat through widish mid on. Two runs taken. 59 needed from 10 balls. A six needed off every ball now. Possible?
18.1 - A Milne to M Dhoni
FOUR! Short and outside off, slapped to the cover fence for a boundary. India need maximums.
