Update 3 pm local (1400 GMT) - Get your apples, oranges, biscuits, wafers, etc... Or have some dinner or supper or lunch, depending on where you are. Breakfast... if in West Indies. The point is - continue doing whatever you were doing because no one from the ground staff is in a position of doing anything here. Plainly put, it is raining harder than before and the forecast suggests it should stay that way for the next couple of hours. Ouch.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Colin de Grandhomme
OUT! Colin de Grandhomme is hoodwinked by a slower one. Kumar drops it short and around off, Colin attempts to play the upper cut late but it takes the outside edge and sinks into the gloves of Dhoni. MS tosses the ball up in celebration, the bowler has his arm up as he keeps running in satisfaction and de Grandhomme also starts to walk back. The 38-run stand which came off 22 balls has been broken. Vital breakthrough as this pair was looking dangerous.
Hardik Pandya to Jimmy Neesham
OUT! Neesham gaps out. A seam up delivery from Pandya, on a length and around the pads, Neesham attempts to heave it over the leg side but confounds his shot towards wide long on. Dinesh Karthik pushes ahead and across to one side in the profound and takes the skier safely. Great wicket this for India as Jimmy has the ability to hit long and can be a dangerous batsman in the death overs.
Yuzvendra Chahal to Kane Williamson
OUT! Enormous hit to New Zealand! There was certainly a change in tactics from the Kiwis post the Drinks break and Kane attempted to be aggressor in this partnership. Failed to last long however. Chahal delivers a leg spinner around off, Williamson attempts for a drive over the infield on the off side but it spins away at the last moment to take the outside half of his bat. It flies straight into the hands of Jadeja at backward point. He will take these catches even in his sleep. Easy-peasy, India break through with a prized wicket.
Ravindra Jadeja to Henry Nicholls
OUT! Directly through the gate! Sir Jadeja strikes to break the 68-run stand! An exquisite conveyance. Pleasant flight and there is some mood killer the surface too. It lands around off, Nicholls strides forward to defend with a straight bat but it curls back in, beats the inside edge and shatters the stumps. Brilliant ball and this will give great confidence to the spinners playing in this match.
Jasprit Bumrah to Martin Guptill
OUT! Edged and gone! This was on the cards with so many dot deliveries. Bumrah serves it on a back of a length around off at 138 kph and gets it to straighten a touch. Guptill sticks back and pushes inside the line. He gets a thick outside edge behind and Virat Kohli extends his hands up at second slip to finish the catch safely. Awesome start for India and the sorry type of Guptill continues.
