Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all we have for you. Thanks for your company. From Varun and I, it’s buh-bye. #RhymesFTW

“It was one of our more balanced performances in the last few games. When I lost the toss, I thought it was going to be 300 par. One-fifty-odd on that wicket was superb,” says Virat Kohli. “The fast bowling group together believe they can knock any side over. And the belief in his own ability and his fitness – this is the fittest I’ve seen him in his career. And his Test form has translated into one-day cricket. The pitch got slow in the second half of the innings but in the first half the spinners bowled well, cramped the batsmen and they still made it difficult despite the dimesions on the field. Very important innings for Dhawan. We spoke about how he needed to finish games for India, to keep his confidence and if he’s in that mindset, he can be a great asset. Never had that happen. 2014, I got out once with the sun in my eyes and this rule wasn’t there then”

“It wasn’t our best effort. We expected INdia to be good and they were very good. It wasn’t the traditional surface here. But it wasn’t hard. We just had to get through the slower balls but I do think their lengths were immaculate. Obviously 150 on the board on a surface where 250 was par was hard,” Kane Williamson says. “Sometimes it helps [break between playing]. It was lack of adjusting to the surface. Sometimes you come here and think it’s 350-plus. This one needed a bit more graft. All the Indian bowlers contributed but we do need to be better. I do think our energy in the field and with the ball was good though and we need to move on from this game quickly”

“Success boils down to the hard work by the team on the whole. And we always have plans for players. Plan A, Plan B. We can go from one to the next,” Mohammed Shami, the Man of the Match says. “Coming back from injury, we have good facilities provided to us. It changed things for me a bit. It was big blow. For the next 18 months I was in rehab. I trained really hard and when I came into the team, everyone backed me, the management, the captain and so I was able to push my limits, keep getting fitter and fitter. Slight changes in conditions. Grounds are bigger in Australia. Looking a tthe last series we played here, it was important to figure out where to bowl her depending on those dimensions”

9.37 pm India win by roughly a truckload of wickets and overs to spare. (It’s eight and 14.1, but who cares?) They made excellent use of the new ball with Mohammed Shami striking twice in his opening spell (two maidens in those four overs too) and the wristspinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav giving them no place to hide thereafter. There were very few complications in the case – the target was only 158 after all – barring that little sun-stopped-play incident (seriously, read all about it) – as Shikhar Dhawan struck his first fifty-plus score in nine ODI innings.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, after missing a fifty, and the chance to average 60 in ODIs, is taking a ride on a segway. Possibly borrowed it from one of the cameramen. And Dhoni steals it off him. Then Kohli takes it back, dancing on it to prove his superiority. It’s all happening.

Hitesh : “Wither Guptill or Munro has to go, need stability at the top for NZ. Top order needs to set a platform not expecting next drop to come in so soon.”

Jiten Surtani: “Goodluck with explaining to a new person how India win after scoring 156 after New Zealand scored 157 !” Just say DLS. If they ask you to explain, shrug your shoulders and say Deee Elll Yesss.

34.5 1 Southee to Rayudu slower ball, Rayudu drops it in front of point, Dhawan responds for the single and India win! 1 run

Sukhbir Singh: “I think what’s happening with Rayudu is somewhat similar to what happened with MSD in first game, I think this innning can help him in performing better in next innings.”

34.4 0 Southee to Rayudu steers a back of a length delivery to point no run
34.3 0 Southee to Rayudu full and outside off, defends no run
34.2 4 Southee to Rayudu steps out and launches the length ball outside off over cover. Scores tied FOUR
34.1 1 Southee to Dhawan good length, outside off, punches to mid-off 1 run

End of Over No.34 India 150/2 This Over (2 runs)

33.6 0 Bracewell to Rayudu steps out of his crease but Bracewell keeps following him, tucking him up and Rayudu can only push it to cover no run
33.5 0 Bracewell to Rayudu bouncer, on middle stump, gets out of the way no run
33.4 0 Bracewell to Rayudu full on off stump, defends no run
33.3 0 Bracewell to Rayudu shortish and outside off, taps into the covers no run
33.3 1 Bracewell to Rayudu goes for the pull to a short ball down leg, doesn’t connect 1 wide
33.2 0 Bracewell to Rayudu shortish and on off stump, taps it down the pitch no run
33.1 1 Bracewell to Dhawan works the shortish delivery on middle and leg through square leg 1 run

End of Over No.33 India 148/2 This Over (3 runs)

32.6 1 Ferguson to Dhawan another sharp bouncer – at 141 kph – rising up above Dhawan’s chest and looking for his badge. The batsman does well though, swaying away from the line, and guiding the ball past the vacant gully region 1 run
32.5 0 Ferguson to Dhawan full and outside off, Dhawan drags it to midwicket no run
32.4 1 Ferguson to Rayudu quick run to square leg, Taylor’s there, getting to the ball quickly enough, even hitting the stumps direct, but Dhawan’s well safe. Great running 1 run

PS – Rayudu might have been out second ball, having nicked a short ball through to the keeper. NZ didn’t appeal though.

32.3 0 Ferguson to Rayudu charges out of his crease and is beaten on the outside edge as he plays too far inside the line. no run

Purvesh: “I have never seen someone so out of touch as Rayudu in the last few days. He is a liability on the field. With him now barred from bowling, there is no logic keeping him in the team. There are sure better batsmen in the hut than him. How good would India be if they had 2 Kohlis! Shubman has already shown enough talent & temperament since he came to the scene.”

32.2 1 Ferguson to Dhawan spots the short ball early, waits until it’s close to his body and then ramps it off middle stump to deep third man 1 run
32.1 0 Ferguson to Dhawan 144kph, shortish on middle, Dhawan gets inside the line to guide it through to point no run

End of Over No.32 India 145/2 This Over (3 runs)

31.6 0 Bracewell to Rayudu good length on off stump and with the ball straightening off the seam Rayudu has to be careful once again no run
31.5 1 Bracewell to Dhawan tucks it past square leg 1 run
31.4 2 Bracewell to Dhawan whip-pulls the short ball coming for his face nearly all the way to the midwicket boundary. Whip-pulls because the bat doesn’t really go horizontal and there’s barely any followthrough. It’s like he’s guiding the ball away with the face pointed straight up 2 runs
31.3 0 Bracewell to Dhawan slower ball, on a full length outside off, Dhawan eases it to point no run
31.2 0 Bracewell to Dhawan back of a length and outside off, Dhawan plops it into the covers no run
31.1 0 Bracewell to Dhawan nearly plays on. Dhawan’s attempt to block the good length ball on middle stump with soft hands almost goes wrong with Bracewell getting just a tiny bit of movement into the left-hander no run

Gautam Sood: “My Man of the match will be Shami for his excellent spell. What-say ?” Agreed.

End of Over No.31 India 142/2 This Over (3 runs)

Rahul Jain: “Rayudu really not looking good against Ferguson here…repeatedly being squared up for pace is poor sign for an international batsmen in my view…”

30.6 1 Ferguson to Dhawan 127 kph – the Lockie Ferguson slower (short) ball, which Dhawan punches through the covers 1 run
30.5 1 Ferguson to Rayudu gets forward to another short of a length delivery and taps it into the covers for a quick single 1 run
30.4 0 Ferguson to Rayudu drives straight to cover no run
30.3 0 Ferguson to Rayudu back of a length and outside off, and yet he goes for an on the up drive, off the front foot. Looks all sorts of odd as the ball beats his edge no run
30.2 0 Ferguson to Rayudu full and outside off, he drives to a deepish mid-off. Dhawan’s looking for a single, but Rayudu says now and he just about makes his time before the throw no run
30.1 1 Ferguson to Dhawan works a full delivery on the pads – at 149 kph – through to deep square leg 1 run

Sourav Mukherje: “Dhawan’s innings looks more like a compensation for the catch dropped by him at long on. ” He’s been under pressure for a tiny bit. Between this fifty and his last hundred in September, he’s had nine scores under 40.
