New Zealand seemed to have got off to a steady start thanks to Jesse Ryder‘s aggression, but Mohammed Shami struck once again removing Ryder for the second time in as many matches. Ryder tried to go for an upper cut to a short ball pitched outside off-stump and nicked it to MS Dhoni behind the wickets. Ryder scored 20 runs in 11 balls with four hits to the fence.

 

Ryder struck three boundaries early on and looked in good touch.  He played the ball late and found the gaps to perfection. He hit the last ball of the first over for a boundary and then followed it up with two consecutive boundaries off Shami.

 

The pitch was expected to be on the slower side and that seemed to have led to Ryder’s wicket who couldn’t middle the ball well and was dismissed for 20.
