Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 64. 3 runs. Bowler: Mitchell Santner. West Indies: 10-203(rr 3.17)
64.5 OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Santner to Kemar Roach. Stock length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, missed. Two in two for Mitchell Santner to finish the game. This delivery grips, and it turns past the outside edge to crash into the off stump.New Zealand take the series 2-0 to start of their summer, and have completely dominated every moment of cricket across the two matches. Roston Chase and Raymon Reifer frustated the bowlers today, but once they were dismissed, the rest followed in no time. The teams attention will now turn to the ODI series, which begins next Wednesday.
64.4 OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to Miguel Cummins. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Boult. The change to the spinner has worked. Santner loops it up, Cummins tries to send it into orbit, and the ball loops up off the edge to mid off. Boult snaffles it, but complains about the sun afterwards. Just one wicket needed for victory.
64.3 Mitchell Santner to Miguel Cummins. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Santner.
64.2 Mitchell Santner to Miguel Cummins. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off for 2 runs, fielded by de Grandhomme.

63.6 SIX! Tim Southee to Miguel Cummins. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. This is brilliant viewing. Cummins' turn to bring out the long handle. He clears the front leg, gets it in the slot, and powers it over the rope for six.
63.5 Tim Southee to Kemar Roach. Yorker, to leg backing away defending, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Latham.
63.4 Tim Southee to Kemar Roach. Yorker, middle stump backing away driving, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

63.2 Tim Southee to Kemar Roach. Short, down leg side backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Raval.
63.1 SIX! Tim Southee to Kemar Roach. Short, down leg side backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Roach is having some fun out there. Runs outside leg, and swats it over cow corner for six. Great hitting.

62.6 Neil Wagner to Kemar Roach. Off cutter yorker, down leg side on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Nicholls.

62.3 Neil Wagner to Kemar Roach. Back of a length, down leg side backing away pulling, hit body to short leg for no runs, fielded by Nicholls.

62.1 FOUR! Neil Wagner to Kemar Roach. Half volley, to leg backing away driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Classic tailender smash. He jumps a long way outside leg stump, and crushes it through the offside for four.
Over 61. 3 runs. Bowler: Tim Southee. West Indies: 7-174(rr 2.85)
61.6 Tim Southee to Miguel Cummins. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

60.3 APPEAL! Neil Wagner to Miguel Cummins. Reverse Swing-Out half volley, off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to backward point for no runs, fielded by Williamson, appeal made for L.B.W. Wagner is getting some late away shape, and it is too good for Cummins. Beats him on the outside edge, hits the back pad, but it was doing too much. Impact outside off, and missing the stumps too.
60.2 Neil Wagner to Miguel Cummins. Reverse Swing-Out yorker, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.
60.1 Neil Wagner to Miguel Cummins. Reverse Swing-Out length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

Southee convinced that Roach has nicked behind, but the umpire isn't. New Zealand opt for the review. The noise was the bat hitting the ground as the ball passed, so it stays with the original call.

Over 58. 1 run. Bowler: Neil Wagner. West Indies: 7-167(rr 2.88)
58.6 Neil Wagner to Miguel Cummins. Seaming away half volley, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

54.6 Neil Wagner to Raymon Reifer. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell. So into the tail now, how long can West Indies survive? Reifer is carrying on in his own bubble, but Roach won't hang around one would think.

52.1 OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Roston Chase. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by de Grandhomme. So much hard work done by Chase, and it is thrown away with a loose shot. A fourth Test hundred was staring him in the face, but not to be.

51.6 Tim Southee to Raymon Reifer. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 2 runs, dropped catch by Southee, fielded by Raval. Harsh to give Southee a drop for that.

50.6 Neil Wagner to Raymon Reifer. Short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell. A wicketless hour! Who would've thought it? Chase and Reifer doing a super job in frustrating the Kiwis. Can they last the whole session? That will be the next target.

48.3 FOUR! Trent Boult to Roston Chase. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Top shot, and top innings from Chase.

43.6 Colin de Grandhomme to Raymon Reifer. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Raval.

41.6 Colin de Grandhomme to Raymon Reifer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Williamson. De Grandhomme causing some issues outside the off stump for Reifer. He doesn't really know where his off stump is, and is playing at deliveries he doesn't need to.

37.6 Colin de Grandhomme to Raymon Reifer. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Southee, fielded by Raval. A nice partnership building Chase and Reifer, as word comes in that Ambris will not bat again. He has suffered a broken arm, and is out of the ODI series too. Awful news. It means that this is the last recognised pair, and if one goes, it could be over quickly.

35.6 FOUR! Colin de Grandhomme to Raymon Reifer. Seaming away length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. A second four that goes through the slips this over. Lovely line and length from de Grandhomme, gets it to nip away, but Reifer plays with soft hands and controls it along the ground.

Over 34. 9 runs. Bowler: Neil Wagner. West Indies: 5-106(rr 3.12)
34.6 Neil Wagner to Raymon Reifer. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Santner. West Indies lose another three wickets in that session, and the hosts are well on their way to victory. Sunil Ambris has had to retire hurt also, and has gone to hospital for an x-ray on his arm following the blow he took from Wagner. So the Kiwis might just need another four wickets to wrap things up. Chase and Reifer showed a little resistance in the back end of the morning, and they will be wanting to put the victory on hold for as long as possible. Join us in 40 minutes to see if New Zealand can secure the win in the afternoon.
34.5 FOUR! Neil Wagner to Raymon Reifer. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. More authority and confidence in this drive. Into position quickly, and thumped back down the ground for four more.

34.3 FOUR! Neil Wagner to Raymon Reifer. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Timed that one excellently. Beauty of an on-drive by Reifer, and it races past the diving mid on for four.

33.6 Colin de Grandhomme to Raymon Reifer. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by de Grandhomme. Reifer hanging in there and showing the fight that some of the other batsmen should've had. Compact in defence, and supporting Chase nicely.

31.6 Trent Boult to Raymon Reifer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Nicholls. Coming towards the lunch break now.

24.3 OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Shane Dowrich. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, inside edge to short leg, by Nicholls. Dowrich last all of two deliveries against the Wagner bouncer. He awkwardly jumps and tries to defend, but gets into a bit of a tangle. Perhaps ducking underneath would've been a better option. The ball pops up off the splice of the bat, and it is gobbled up at short leg.
24.2 Neil Wagner to Shane Dowrich. Short, down leg side on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Santner.
24.1 Neil Wagner to Sunil Ambris. Short, down leg side on the back foot, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Nicholls. Ambris is in too much pain to continue. He was struck on the forearm in the last over from Wagner, and is in a lot of discomfort after every delivery. Might have broken something, so off he goes.
Over 23. 2 runs. Bowler: Tim Southee. West Indies: 4-80(rr 3.48)
23.6 Tim Southee to Roston Chase. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Grandhomme.

22.5 Neil Wagner to Sunil Ambris. Short, down leg side ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.
22.4 FOUR! Neil Wagner to Sunil Ambris. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, top edge past third man for 4 runs. These West Indian's are not playing the short ball from Wagner very well here. Ambris swipes at it, takes his eyes off the ball, and top edges into his helmet. It somehow flies between the keeper and second slip, and trickles away for four.
22.3 Neil Wagner to Roston Chase. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Nicholls.
22.2 Neil Wagner to Roston Chase. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Raval.

Over 20. 4 runs. Bowler: Neil Wagner. West Indies: 4-68(rr 3.40)
20.6 OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Shai Hope. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by de Grandhomme. Hope was hit on the forearm in the previous delivery, and that has obviously shaken him up. Next ball, Wagner is deadly accurate with another short ball, and the West Indian cannot cope. He flaps at it, gets a big top edge, and it floats down the throat of fine leg. Another soft one from the Windies point of view.
20.5 Neil Wagner to Shai Hope. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, hit body to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Raval.
20.4 FOUR! Neil Wagner to Shai Hope. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Brilliant to watch this kind of strokeplay. Width on offer, and Hope elegantly throws the hands through the ball. Spanked away for four more.
20.3 Neil Wagner to Shai Hope. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Boult.
20.2 Neil Wagner to Shai Hope. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

18.6 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.
18.5 FOUR! Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Boult keeps switching his angle of attack, and it is not working. Hope hangs back in the crease here, and uses the pace to dab it away to the third man fence.
18.4 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot Steer, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Santner.
18.3 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Santner.

17.5 Tim Southee to Roston Chase. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Nicholls.
17.4 FOUR! Tim Southee to Roston Chase. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Creamed through the covers for Chase's first four. Southee invites the drive by throwing it up to the bat, and it is met with the middle of the blade.
17.3 Tim Southee to Roston Chase. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.
17.2 Tim Southee to Roston Chase. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Raval.

16.6 FOUR! Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Beauty from Hope. Doesn't try and overhit, just punches through the line of the ball and sends it whisting away to the long on fence.
16.5 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by de Grandhomme.
16.4 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Boult.

14.2 Trent Boult to Roston Chase. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Santner.
14.1 OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Kraigg Brathwaite. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to gully, by Williamson. New Zealand get their first of the morning, and it is the 200th Test wicket for Trent Boult. Short, wide, and should really be punished. Brathwaite flashes hard, and cannot keep the ball down. Slashed straight into the hands of the Kiwi skipper. A tame dismissal yet again from a West Indian.

12.6 Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell. West Indies could not have asked for better batting conditions today. Very hot, and not a cloud in the sky. They have started off solidly this morning.

10.1 FOUR! Trent Boult to Shai Hope. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. The technique is textbook from Hope here. A check-drive is smoked through the vacant covers for the first boundary of the day.

8.6 Welcome to day four of the second Test, on what could be the last day of the series. New Zealand require eight more wickets to make it 2-0, and it is really just a matter of when those will be taken. West Indies need a mammoth, record breaking, 414 runs to seal victory for themselves. That isn't happening though. There is enough in the pitch, and some movement in the air, to keep the bowlers interested, but batting isn't an impossible task. All the Windies can hope for is a good gritty display of batting to show they are up for the fight.
8.5 Trent Boult to Kraigg Brathwaite. Half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, thick edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Santner.

7.3 OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Shimron Hetmyer. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to mid off, by Wagner. That is the danger of playing this aggressive. Atrocious shot from Hetymer. Tries to drive again, but it lobs up off the bottom of the bat to mid off. Only five minutes to go in the day, and that is the softest of dismissals you will see.
7.2 FOUR! Tim Southee to Shimron Hetmyer. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Very positive stuff from Hetmyer. He crushes this back through mid on, and it rolls away to the boundary.

5.3 FOUR! Tim Southee to Shimron Hetmyer. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Hetmyer certainly doesn't care about this pressure situation tonight. He is playing his natural game. He takes on the Southee short ball, and deposits it to the square leg boundary.
5.2 Tim Southee to Shimron Hetmyer. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Nicholls.
5.1 Tim Southee to Kraigg Brathwaite. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Santner.

4.2 FOUR! Trent Boult to Shimron Hetmyer. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Hooping away from Hetmyer, but he wallops it off the meat of the bat for four. Lovely flowing blade as he leans into the stroke.

3.5 FOUR! Tim Southee to Kraigg Brathwaite. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Very full by Southee, enticing the drive, and the West Indian cautiously accepts. Prodded back down the ground by Brathwaite, and it trickles into the rope.
3.4 Tim Southee to Kraigg Brathwaite. Short, off stump swayed away, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

2.3 OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Kieran Powell. Out-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Southee. Boult just takes three deliveries to get into the action. Perfect line to the left hander, Powell has to play, and the ball is shaping it towards the slips. Outside edge taken, and Southee snaffles it at third slip. Exactly what the Kiwis wanted.
2.2 Trent Boult to Kieran Powell. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.

1.3 FOUR! Tim Southee to Kraigg Brathwaite. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Southee goes too straight, and Brathwaite nudges that off the hip very fine.

NEW BALL. Tim Southee to Kraigg Brathwaite. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Blundell.
