BALL BY BALL
Ov 9: 0 2 W 1 0 4 ( 7 Runs, 1 Wkt )
8.6 - A Nurse to K Williamson
FOUR! Not the ideal way to end the over. Nurse serves it a touch short in line of the stumps, Williamson goes back and pulls it through mid-wicket. There was a man in the deep who was seen running to his left but there's no chance for him to cut that off. A boundary it is that brings up 100 for New Zealand.
8.5 - A Nurse to K Williamson
Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
8.4 - A Nurse to A Kitchen
Short in length, pulled away to the deep on the leg side for a run that gets him going.
8.3 - A Nurse to T Bruce
OUT! What a catch! Remember the name? This is floated full on off, Bruce looks to slog it through mid-wicket but he fails to get the desired elevation. Nevertheless, he wouldn't have been faulted for thinking about runs there. But what he failed to account for is the presence of a 'gentle giant' by the name of Carlos Brathwaite in the way there. The Caribbean skipper flings himself to his right and pulls off a stunner. The ball was almost behind him before he took that. He knows the value of that catch and shows it in his celebration.
8.2 - A Nurse to T Bruce
Excellent running yet again. A touch shorter on off, Bruce goes back and cuts it through backward point. Before the fielder in the deep can get the throw in, a brace results.
8.1 - A Nurse to T Bruce
Flatter on the pads, gets it off the inner half to short fine leg.
Ov 8: W 0 0 0 1 2 ( 3 Runs, 1 Wkt )
7.6 - S Badree to K Williamson
Slipping shot! Williamson slips a touch as he pulls this one through mid-wicket. Does well to come back for two.
7.5 - S Badree to T Bruce
Bruce gets going with a flick through mid-wicket.
7.4 - S Badree to T Bruce
Another appeal, turned down! Badree floats it on the stumps, Bruce goes for the flick but there are two noises as he gets hit on the pads. The players appeal but to no avail. Sliding down leg, maybe.
7.3 - S Badree to T Bruce
Bruce finds the cover fielder with this push.
7.2 - S Badree to T Bruce
The batsman has played it to the point region.
7.1 - S Badree to G Phillips
OUT! Can't keep Badree out of the wickets column in T20s, can you? He bowls a flat slider in line of the stumps, Phillips fails to pick it up. Goes back to play for that but is beaten and is struck in front of the sticks. An appeal here is just a formality as the umpire gives him the marching orders. Not the time tonight for Glenn Phillips.
