What a heart break for Windies

ANTI-CLIMAX: Windies fall short and #NZ win by 5 runs !

Brathwaite went for another big hit but is caught in the deep by Boult! So near yet so far!

02:15 (IST)23 Jun 2019

WHAT AN INNINGS THIS HAS BEEN! His maiden in ODIs but he knows the job is not done. Back of a length ball on off, Carlos pulls it to deep mid-wicket and takes a couple to bring up his century.

02:08 (IST)23 Jun 2019
West Indies are in the driver's seat now.

2 6 6 6 4 1= 25 runs from Henry's over! Windies need just 8 off 12 now but only 1 wicket in hand

02:03 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Carlos Braithwaite- Remember the name

Back to back sixes from Carlos Brathwaite. WestIndies need 19 from 15 with 1 wicket in hand Fasten your seat belt, Brathwaite is on a mission here. Full toss wide of him, Brathwaite slices it over backward point for another maximum. 19 needed of 15 balls.

01:50 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Brathwaite enters blitzkrieg mode

He's going after every ball here and you can see why. He cannot afford to let Oshane Thomas on strike. WI need 40 off 27. Crucially, ONE wicket in hand.

01:48 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Cottrell is out

Lockie Ferguson breaks through Cottrell's unconventional defence. A massive breakthrough for the Black Caps. West Indies lose their ninth wicket. Surely it's a target too far now. Oshane Thomas is the last man in.

01:45 (IST)23 Jun 2019
West Indies see off the over from Trent Boult

Cottrell sees off the over from Trent Boult. Boult has been too hot to handle today. Brathwaite is on strike as we begin the 45th over. West Indies need 48 more runs.

01:41 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Cottrell steps up

Cottrell, after his heroics in the first innings, is stepping up with the bat in this chase as well. Got two fours off Jimmy Neesham in the last over and does well to ensure that Brathwaite has the strike in the new over. West Indies need 48 off 40 balls.

01:33 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Brathwaite's lone fight

If only Brathwaite had a little more support from the rest of the team this chase could have been so easy for the Windies. Kemar Roach has done a good job to stick around with Brathwaite and the World T20 final hero has done well to keep Windies in sight of the target. He has reached his individual 50, only his second in ODIs. 60 runs needed off 52 balls now.

00:58 (IST)23 Jun 2019
Where West Indies lost the plot

Even New Zealand cannot believe how West Indies have handed this match to them on a platter.

00:48 (IST)23 Jun 2019
West Indies need 124 in 20 overs

The required run rate is not an issue at all, but the West Indies middle order hara kiri means that there is no batting left in this team. Kemar Roach is out there with Carlos Brathwaite, and with the tail exposed, you get the feeling it will take a miracle for them to claw their way back into this match.

00:42 (IST)23 Jun 2019
West Indies lose their way

West Indies have lost their way chasing 292. Chris Gayle (87) and Shimron Hetmeyer (54) had the chase in control for a long time but the Windies lost 5 wickets in the space of 22 runs with their respective departures. Lockie Ferguson took two in two, and then Colin de Grandhomme picked the big wicket of Chris Gayle! West Indies slipped from 142 for 2 to 164 for 7!

23:55 (IST)22 Jun 2019
Gayle and Hetmeyer propel Windies chase

Chris Gayle and Shimron Hetmeyer are progressing well in this chase of 292. They are both batting at strike rates in excess of 100. They're living dangerously, courtesy a few dropped catches, but they are in command at the moment. The score now 114/2 after 18 overs. 

22:35 (IST)22 Jun 2019

NZ are defending 291 - a powerful West Indies batting lineup awaits! Gayle and Hope to open up, Boult with the new ball. Let's Play

22:23 (IST)22 Jun 2019
Dangerous swing from Cottrell

"I was surprised myself with the way it was swinging earlier. I just bowled full and did my best. I am a bowler and when it's swinging, I think I am very dangerous," says Sheldon Cottrell.

21:59 (IST)22 Jun 2019
New Zealand score 291/8 in 50 overs

Wickets off the last two balls of the innings as New Zealand aim for a big finish. 291/8 is what they put up. What a vital knock from Kane Williamson (148). Had a very important helping hand from Ross Taylor and the lower middle order chipped in with useful cameos as well. Sheldon Cottrell the undisputed star from the Windies side. Took 4 wickets, effected a lightning run out, Took two catches. And saved many runs.

21:49 (IST)22 Jun 2019
De Grandhomme is run out

Colin de Grandhomme heaves a few lofty shots before departing for a 6-ball 16. New Zealand giving it a mighty go at the very end. Another great piece of work by Cottrell, this time in getting De Grandhomme run out. Picked the ball up in his follow-through, swivelled around and broke the stumps.

21:37 (IST)22 Jun 2019
Williamson is out

Tragedy for West Indies. Williamson is dismissed by Cottrell. So, finally, Williamson does get dismissed. For the first time since the match against Bangladesh. Looked to heave it on the on side, gets a top edge. What a knock!

21:36 (IST)22 Jun 2019
Cottrell comes back on

Cottrell is bowling to Williamson. He has been the best Windies bowler today. Last four overs left. How much more can Williamson and New Zealand add to this?
This is the first time that a New Zealand batsman has faced 150 balls in an ODI innings since the last World Cup. It's only the 10th time a player from any country has done it in that time.

21:29 (IST)22 Jun 2019
Williamson nearing a big landmark

Williamson's highest ODI score is 145*. He is fast closing on that score and also his first ODI 150. He has significantly upped his strike rate in the last few overs. His strike rate now 97. Has unlocked a six-hitting dimension in his game almost. Was in the 50s and 60s for a long part of his stay.
Also, England seems to be a favourite venue for him. Kane Williamson in ODIs in England since 2015: 45, 93, 118, 90, 50, 100, 87, 57, 40, 79*, 106* and 147* (TODAY)
