West Indies vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I, New Zealand Tour of West Indies, 2014

Commentary

West Indies won by 39 runs | West Indies Vs New Zealand Live Score, 2nd T20I

That ends the New Zealand tour of West Indies. The visitors were the more dominant of the two sides. They won the Test series 2-1 and drew the T20Is 1-1. The cricket season has just begun, so do join us for the rest of the games coming up. Until next time, take care and Cya!
Sammy: 'The conditions did not favour any team. We showed what we can do when the conditions are same for both the sides. We exploited the conditions vert well. We have the No.1 and 2 bowlers in the T20, it also helps that myself and Pollard can contribute with the ball. I would like to congratulate the New Zealand team, who have had a successful tour of the Caribbean.'
Williamson: 'It was not a strong performance by us. West Indies showed how good they are in this format. When they came in and took the pace of the ball, it made working the ball away difficult. It was good experience to lead the side today.'
Fletcher: 'I am very happy with my performance today. I was disappointed that my fifty in the last game was in a losing cause. The wicket was better to bat on today.'
Andre Fletcher is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series
Anderson: 'It would have been nice to win 2-0 but on the whole it has been a very successful tour. Yesterday it came onto the bat nicely but today it was assisting the slower bowlers.'
West Indies have comeback well to level the series 1-1. The visitors started off well with McCullum and Williamson going berserk but once Baz fell to Badree, they lost the momentum. Pollard tightened things in the middle with his variations and once the asking rate went up, the New Zealand batsmen failed to get the big hits away. They lost their last 8 wickets for 44 runs. Narine and Badree bowled superbly, while Cottrell also did a good job. Stay tuned for the presentation...
19.1 Sheldon Cottrell to Trent Boult W
out Boult Run Out!! West Indies by 39 runs. The celebrations had already begun, they knew that they had their man. This was short and outside off, Boult cuts it to backward point and takes off for a risky single, Bravo composes himself and hits the bulls-eye at the non-striker's end, Boult was well short of the crease. Boult run out (Darren Bravo) 5(5)
10 wickets down for NZ. Out batsman is Trent Boult. It is all over for NZ.
TV umpire called in for a run-out chance. Boult is well short of his ground.
Ish Sodhi, right handed bat, comes to the crease
End of over 19, 6 runs (1 . 2 2 1 W )
NZ: 126/9
Tim Southee - 2(3) This over: 1 runs
Trent Boult - 5(4) This over: 5 runs
Andre Russell
(2.0 - 0 - 17 - 1)
18.6 Andre Russell to Tim Southee W
out Caught by Cottrell!! New Zealand going down like a house on fire. The slower delivery once again does the trick, Southee walks across his stumps and goes for the scoop, he does not have the pace to work with and offers the easiest of catches to Cottrell at short fine leg. Southee c Cottrell b A Russell 2(3)
18.5 Andre Russell to Trent Boult 1
1 run, too full and on off, Boult squeezes it square of the wicket on the off-side
18.4 Andre Russell to Trent Boult 2
2 runs, short and outside off, Boult backs away and cuts it over Bravo at backward point for another two
18.3 Andre Russell to Trent Boult 2
2 runs, full and outside off, Boult slices it over backward point for a couple
18.2 Andre Russell to Trent Boult 0
no run, off-cutter, Boult makes room and fails to make contact on the slog, that was very close to the leg-stump
