    End of MAtch

    That's a four games to one series victory for the home side, and it's been thoroughly deserved! With six overs to go, New Zealand looked to have this game wrapped up, but some inspired bowling from Narine and some poor decisions from the batsmen left the tourists with too much to do. It's been a good series from the home side and Sammy can be proud of his men for never giving up. Thanks for joining us. We'll see you for the tests

  •  

    Over 50 Bravo 1-1-0-0-0-W

    221/10 OUT! With twenty three to win, this game should surely be wrapped up. Bravo bowls the last over, and does well to give the batsmen nothing!The home side wraps up the series with a very good win as Pollard takes a high ball to dismiss Boult!

  •  

    Over 49 Best 1-1-0-1-1-2

    219/9 Best bowls a good over end his spell. The home side have fought back well!

  •  

    Over 48 Narine 0-W-0-1-0-W

    213/9 OUT! Narine has done him in as Ellis plays all over the delivery, it sneaks through to take top of off stump. Southee heaves one away. And Mills is then done in as well! Surely that must be it! That's Narine first fifer in ODI cricket!

  •  

    Over 47 Best 0-1-1-1wd-0-1

    212/7 This game has come alive now! It's there for the taking now! Best does well to keep it tight, but then bowls another wide. He recovers well though as Ellis looks to do to much!

  •  

    Over 46 Narine 1-0-1-W-0-0

    208/7A silly review leaves Ellis standing at his crease. Not even close! But Gayle comes up with a moment of brilliance! He dives away to his right to take a brilliant catch as Williamson tried to pull one through mid-wicket!

  •  

  •  

    Over 44 Narine 1wd-1-0-1-0-1-0

    196/6 Narine is back to try slow things down. And he does relatively well.

  •  

    Over 43 Best 0-0-0-1-1-1

    192/6 Best continues with his industrious bowling action! He starts very well, and finishes strongly too. Ellis is dropped! A poor effort from a too casual Bravo! A good over from Best!

  •  

    Over 42 Bravo 4-1-2-6-0-0

    189/6 Ellis gets in on the action and he panels Bravo off the first ball. The run rate is quietly rising from the batting side as they look to get a move on. Williamson plays a lovely inside out drive for six!

  •  

    Over 41 Best 1-1-4-0-0-1wd-0

    176/6 Williamson brings up his fifty with a nice pull shot over mid-wicket. His strike rate is rising all the while as well. Best is not firing right now.

  •  

    Over 40 Samuels 1-1-1-1-4-1

    169/6 This was the last over of the powerplay and the batsmen would be a little disappointed with that effort.

  •  

    Over 39 Bravo 0-0-1-0-2-1

    160/6 Bravo has been tight today. He hasn't tried to do anything tricky, he's just bowled good areas.

  •  

    Over 38 Samuels 1-1-2-1-1-0

    156/6 This is a better over for the visitors now, as they look to accelerate through the batting powerplay. Still no boundaries though.

  •  

    Over 37 Bravo 0-1-0-2-0-2

    150/6 Bravo has been tidy so far. A good over from the veteran.

  •  

    Over 36 Samuels 1-0-1-2-1-0

    145/6 The tourists are in trouble now. Williamson need to take the bull by the horns and have a go now!

  •  

    Over 35 Bravo 0-1-0-1-W-0

    140/6 OUT! It looks like it may rain a bit here! but not before Bravo finds the outside edge of Latham! Thomas takes a good catch!

  •  

    Over 34 Samuels 1-0-2-0-0-1

    138/5 Samuels continues after drinks, with mixed results. A good over in the end.

  •  

    Over 33 Bravo 0-1-1-1-1-0

    134/5 Bravo is into the attack now. Which Dwayne is going turn up today? Is he going to be brilliant or horrific? Indifferent Dwayne after that over. The batsmen just nudged him around.

  •  

    Over 32 Samuels 1-0-0-1-0-0

    130/5 There's very little energy out the at the moment! Samuels bowls another tight over!
