What a game and a brilliantly timed chase from New Zealand, although it got a little tight at the end. Ross Taylor played a superb knock to get his team over the line and along with Tom Latham they all but finished the game. Credit also to Henry Nicholls for getting his side off to a good start but Virat Kohli will not be happy with his team in the field or with the ball. Too many loose deliveries and sloppy fielding gifted too many runs so they have a lot to clean up before the next match.
48.1 - M Shami to R Taylor
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Jadhav.

47.5 - S Thakur to M Santner
Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, shy attempt by Yadav.
The birthday boy Mitchell Santner has come to the party. Thumped back past mid off and that is very nearly game over.
47.4 - S Thakur to M Santner
Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.
47.3 - S Thakur to M Santner
Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Rahul.
That will calm a few nerves. Rocks back and slaps the short ball flat and hard for six.

Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
47.1 - S Thakur to R Taylor
