NZ v WI highlights today – First one day international from Cobham Oval (New), Whangarei (New Zealand) Wednesday 20th December 2017. West Indies lost the toss and batted first, they scored 248 runs in 50 overs with nine down. CH Gayle opener of West Indies team scored 22 runs off 31 deliveries and out when it was 10.1 What a comeback for this man! First ball after a long break and takes a feather edge off Gayle’s bat! Good length on middle and angling past Gayle’s body. Gayle’s enticed to poke at it and takes the slightest of edges off his bat. Latham safe as a church. Big wicket 40/1.
E Lewis has done so good job by scoring 76 runs off 100 balls, he smashed seven 4s and a maximum in his innings and after then it was 35.2 given lbw as he misses this googly. It’s a full one at the middle stump. He looks to sweep and looks to be trapped in front. But this is close because that has turned a long way. Was it missing off? Possibly. Lewis looks on in hope, but he’s been told they’re out of reviews. That’s the end of his innings. Replays show it was missing off 177/6. SD Hope † gone with duck, SO Hetmyer contributed 29 runs, R Powell scored 59 runs. DAJ Bracewell took four wickets, TD Astle took three and LH Ferguson took two West Indians wickets.
New Zealand won the toss and elected to field first.
