H Pandya to M Santner, 1 run, INDIA WIN BY 6 RUNS! Hardik finishes it off nicely. A short ball outside off, Mitchell slashes hard but gets an outside edge over point. Only a single. A fantastic contest even though marred by rain. But it made for a good match.

7.5

H Pandya to M Santner, 2 run, That is the game then. Unless we see something very funny. A length ball around off and outside off, Santner swings but miscues it towards long on. So bad is the timing that the ball does not even carry to Virat Kohli at the fence. The batsmen come back for the second. 8 needed off the final ball now...

7.4

H Pandya to de Grandhomme, 1 run, Just what India needed. CdG can only pull this to deep mid-wicket for a single which means Santner has to take New Zealand home now.

7.4

H Pandya to de Grandhomme, 1 run, WIDE! A slower ball gone wrong now! It is a deliberate short ball outside off, thinking that it will be slapped but a smart Colin lets it go. 10 from 3 now...

7.3

H Pandya to de Grandhomme, 6 run, SIX! BANG! That has gone into orbit! A short ball, around off, de Grandhomme pulls this miles over mid-wicket! 11 needed from 3 now!

7.2

H Pandya to de Grandhomme, 0 run, DROPPED! But has he hurt his finger? Full and outside off, de Grandhomme smashes it straight back. Hardik puts out his hand for the catch as an act of reflex but the ball bursts through his hand. A single taken. Hardik is in pain.

7.1

H Pandya to M Santner, 1 run, Action replay of the previous delivery. A slower ball, outside off, Santner swings but misses. They take the bye, MS misses his shy.

J Bumrah to M Santner, 1 run, A slower ball again, outside off, Santner swings but misses. They take a bye as MS misses his shy at the striker's end. 19 needed from the final over!

6.5

J Bumrah to Tom Bruce, OUT!, OUT! Bruce is gone! A comedy of errors. It is a wide ball and Bruce attempts the reverse paddle but misses. They go for the bye and Dhoni misses his shy at the striker's end. Now Bumrah tries at his end but misses as well. Bruce collides with the bowler, then dives onto the stumps, then gets back. De Grandhomme is straightaway coming back for the second but Bruce cannot beat the throw coming in from long on. It is referred upstairs as Dhoni takes the bails off. Gone by a mile. But why wasn't that a wide? The ball was well outside the wide guideline.

J Bumrah to de Grandhomme, 1 run, SAFE. A slower ball outside off, de Grandhomme looks to go over point but misses. The batsmen take a bye again and Dhoni throws it to the bowler who misses his shy at his end. The ball goes down the ground and de Grandhomme wants the second but is sent back. The throw comes in to Bumrah again who disturbs the bails and appeals. It is referred upstairs but replays show the dive has saved Colin.

6.4

J Bumrah to Tom Bruce, 2 run, WIDE! And a single taken. This perhaps slipped out of the hand, miles down the leg side. Bruce tries to pull but misses. Dhoni dives to his left and saves the boundary but the batsmen take a bye.

6.3

J Bumrah to Tom Bruce, 4 run, FOUR! Yeah... that is what happens when you miss the yorker. It turns into a full toss and Bruce is waiting for it. Gets slightly across and flicks it through backward square leg. Fine leg starts to run to his left but then gives it up.

6.2

J Bumrah to de Grandhomme, 1 run, Full toss in line of the stumps, chopped to point for a single.

6.1

J Bumrah to H Nicholls, OUT!, OUT! Good running catch! The death bowler brings the game to life again. The ball is full and outside leg, perhaps might have been left alone, but Nicholls gets down and attempts the paddle scoop. Not a safe option with fine leg at the fence. The ball lobs off the top edge. Shreyas Iyer spots the ball and comes running in. For all his fielding throughout the series, this is a fairly difficult chance. But he takes it. Heaves a sigh of relief. 29 NEEDED FROM 11 BALLS.

Y Chahal to H Nicholls, 1 run, Short and outside off, crashed through the covers but only for a single to the man at sweeper. Just 3 runs from the over. Chahal finishes with figures of 2-0-8-0.

5.5

Y Chahal to H Nicholls, 0 run, Gets across his sticks and Chahal bowls it flatter and wider outside off. Nicholls swings but misses. A dot ball again!

5.4

Y Chahal to de Grandhomme, 1 run, Flatter outside off, this time CdG connects but only for a single through the covers.

5.3

Y Chahal to de Grandhomme, 0 run, Beaten again! Looped up outside off, Colin looks to go for the expansive cover drive now but is beaten by the exaggerated turn.

5.2

Y Chahal to de Grandhomme, 0 run, That stays a bit low, de Grandhomme looks to drive it through the covers but is beaten by the turn and lack of bounce.

Y Chahal to H Nicholls, 1 run, Full and outside off, punched through the covers for a single.

K Yadav to de Grandhomme, 6 run, SIX! AUDACIOUS! Full again, outside off, de Grandhomme makes full use of his reach, gets to the pitch of the ball and swings this over mid-wicket for a flat six! 10 runs, 2 wickets. Kuldeep has done what the doctor ordered.

4.5

K Yadav to de Grandhomme, 2 run, Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a couple.

4.4

K Yadav to G Phillips, OUT!, OUT! Two in two! The Kiwis might say bye-bye to the number 1 T20I ranking now. A full ball around off, Phillips gets down and mows this over mid-wicket. For a second, it seems like he has connected well. But near the ropes, Shikhar Dhawan, as cool as a cucumber, takes the catch as easy as it gets. Then does a Kabaddi high-five to the dugout behind. India on a hat-trick.

K Yadav to K Williamson, OUT!, DIRECT HIT! Williamson is a goner! Hardik Pandya is the man. He is known to be the one with the golden arm and this time his throwing arm has done the trick. Flighted around off, Williamson comes down the track and looks to whip but skews it off the inner half towards short mid-wicket. He sets off for the single. Hardik Pandya stops the ball, takes aim and shoots at the non-striker's end. Williamson gives up. The ball hits the stumps and boy, that is a terrific fielding effort.

3.5

B Kumar to G Phillips, 4 run, FOUR! Edgy but Glenn won't mind! Fuller in length outside off, Phillips goes after it but gets an outside edge past short third man for a boundary.

3.4

B Kumar to G Phillips, 4 run, FOUR! He pierces the gap to perfection! A much-needed one. Length ball by Kumar on middle, Phillips lofts it in the gap between deep mid-wicket and long on for a boundary.

3.3

B Kumar to G Phillips, 0 run, Full and wide outside off, Phillips tries to go after it but gets beaten. Dot balls are gold at the moment.

3.2

B Kumar to K Williamson, 1 run, Shorter in length outside off, Kane pulls it uppishly, just out of the reach of the bowler and down towards long off for a run.

3.1

B Kumar to K Williamson, 1 run, Shorter in length around middle, Williamson heaves it towards mid-wicket. He completes one and sets off for a second and completes it but the umpire signals one short at the non-striker's end. So just one run off the delivery.
