    16.5 Chris Jordan to James Neesham, 2 runs, That lands in between the two fielders! On middle, Neesham once again looks to loft it over the leg side. Does not connect that well. Liam Livingstone runs to his right from deep mid-wicket. Jonny Bairstow runs to his left from long on but both do not go for the catch. Two in the end. Jordan can’t believe it.

  • 10:49 PM IST

    16.4 Chris Jordan to James Neesham, SIX, SIX! BAIRSTOW’S KNEE HAS TOUCHED THE ROPES! That is what he was worried about and that is a maximum for Neesham. Yet another one and he has got New Zealand back into the game. Heart in the mouth stuff for Neesham there. A slower one. this is dragged towards wide long on. The timing is not there. Bairstow runs towards the ball, takes it and as he falls down, he does so behind the ropes but tosses the ball to Livingstone who catches it and releases the throw. Jordan is celebrating. The throw is to the keeper’s end where the bails are whipped off. Even the run out is to be checked. The soft signal for the catch is out. Replays show that the knee of Bairstow has touched the ropes and there is no need to look any further. Drama galore.

  • 10:48 PM IST

    Is that a catch? The soft signal is out. Hang on, it is a six. Jonny Bairstow’s knee touched the ropes while collecting the catch.

  • 10:47 PM IST

    16.4 Chris Jordan to James Neesham, wide, 1 run, WIDE! This is not good, not what is expected from Jordan! He is so good at death but that is what pressure can do to you. Looks to bowl the slower one but bowls it well wide outside off. Left alone.

  • 10:46 PM IST

    16.3 Chris Jordan to James Neesham, FOUR, FOUR! Thumped! This is a huge over! On middle, once again, the bowler misses the spot. It is thumped down to the long on fence for a boundary. This is outstanding batting from Neesham.

  • 10:46 PM IST

    16.3 Chris Jordan to James Neesham, wide, 1 run, WIDE! Pressure getting to Jordan here! Down the leg side. Way down the leg side. Left alone. Morgan has a word with his bowler. 

  • 10:45 PM IST
