After an aggressive start from the New Zealand openers scoring 54 in the first seven overs, the pacers struck back two send back openers Jesse Ryder and Martin Guptill in successive overs. Aaron dismissed Jesse Ryder for 19 while Guptill departed for 37 dismissed by Mohammed Shami.
The Indian pacers bowled an ordinary line and where clobbered by the openers. Skipper Dhoni was forced to bring in his third pacer Varun Aaron early replacing Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Aaron struck immediately dismissing Ryder bowled for 19. It was the same old dismissal for Ryder not using his foorwork and playing a shot without covering the line of the stumps.
In the next over, it was breakthrough of Guptill who had scored bulk of the runs. Shami pitched one in the line of off-stump and moved it in to Guptill. The batsman couldn’t judge the line and was hit below the knee-roll and was given out leg-before.
