NZ v Windies: Over-by-over

West Indies 221 all out lose to New Zealand 241-7 by 20 runs

Ramnaresh Sarwan hit a brilliant 75 when West Indies were on the ropes, but his dismissal ended the chances of the Caribbean men in an absorbing contest.

Andre Adams was man of the match after hitting 35 not out off just 24 balls before taking four wickets for the resurgent Kiwis.

50th over: Fittingly, Adams delivers the coup de grace by bowling Dillon.
West Indies 221 all out.

49th over: Dillon and Drakes collect 13 off Bond's last over but it leaves 24 needed off the final one.

48th over: A comical run out sees the end of McLean.
West Indies 200-9

47th over: The task has become impossible with Bond returning to bowl a series of fast yorkers.

46th over: WIth just three runs off Vettori's over, the job is becoming extremely tough.

45th over: Jacobs hit a huge six off Styris and collects a fifty but soon afterwards Oram takes a stunning catch at third man.
West Indies 191-8

44th over: Finally, Vettori bowls Sarwan and the Kiwis can breathe again.
West Indies 178-7

43rd over: Styris' attempts to stifle Sarwan are wrecked when the West Indies man drives straight down the ground for a stylish four.

42nd over: Substitute Mathew Sinclair's misfield proves costly as Jacobs is allowed ample time to recover his ground taking a quick single. Adams is beside himself as Jacobs then eases the pressure by flicking down leg side for four.

41st over: Styris slows down the Windies charge, allowing five runs as New Zealand recover their sharpness in the field.

40th over: West Indies begin to accelerate as Sarwan threads a gap through extra cover and finds the boundary.

39th over: Styris is unfortunate as first some lazy fielding hands the opposition two runs and then Jacobs flicks a four to fine-leg.

38th over: Fleming turns to Vettori, who has four overs of his allotted 10 left. His controlled spin restricts West Indies to just a single. The run rate is nearing eight an over.

37th over: Styris joins the bowling attack, conceding two runs.

36th over: A welcome boundary for Jacobs who stretches for a wide delivery from Bond and drives it through the covers - but six from the over is not enough for West Indies.

35th over: Sarwan reaches a dogged half century in difficult circumstances in Oram's final over of the day. He finishes with figures of 2-26.

34th over: The run rate is now above seven as the Windies' batsmen continue to struggle for runs.

33rd over: A sigh of relief for West Indies as Sarwan cuts away through the covers for four off Oram.

31st over: West Indies are stll lacking a spark of inspiration but while these two stay in, West Indies have a chance of grasping an unlikely win.

30th over: Nathan Astle bowls his first over of the innings, conceding two runs.

29th over: Oram gives away four runs - the most he has conceded in an over but Sarwan has to be at his most athletic to avoid a run-out.

28th over: West Indies are gradually finding some rhythm, another six coming from Vettori.

27th over: Bond takes some punishment from a defiant Jacobs, who executes a stunning straight drive for four and brings up the 100.

26th over: Vettori restricts the batsmen to two runs - and the West Indies now need over a a run a ball with only four wickets remaining.

25th over: Shane Bond makes an unexpected return to the bowling attack and Sarwan looks to drive a four off his first ball. But brilliant fielding again prevents the boundary and West Indies just cannot get the scoreboard moving.

24th over: Ridley Jacobs hits a fine shot but sharp New Zealand fielding prevents the boundary and Vettori concedes three.

23rd over: Oram has taken two wickets and conceded just 10 runs - the under-pressure Windies batsmen are struggling to find the gaps.

22nd over: Vettori allows a miserly two runs as West Indies face a mammoth struggle to save this game.

21st over: New Zealand are in complete control now as Oram removes Ricardo Powell's middle stump.
West Indies 80-6

19th over: Another restricting over from Oram, who could finish with very impressive figures.

18th over: Vettori concedes four singles in his first over.

17th over: A maiden over from Oram. Cairns unsurprisingly does not return to the bowling attack, and is replaced by Daniel Vettori.

16th over: Cairns, who is recovering from a knee injury, makes a welcome return to the bowling attack for New Zealand. But it is not so welcome when his first over costs his side a massive 21 runs.

15th over: Shivnarine Chanderpaul is the next to go for West Indies, trapped lbw by Oram.
West Indies 46-5

14th over: Adams cannot quite believe his luck as Carl Hooper lofts a pull shot straight into the grateful hands of Shane Bond.

11th over: New Zealand's players are ecstatic as danger man Brian Lara is out for two. Lou Vincent collects and throws to Cairns who hits the wicket direct for a clear run-out.
West Indies 36-2

10th over: Adams gets his man as Gayle swipes at a ball wide of the off stump and edges it to Fleming. And the Kiwis are ecstatic as danger man Brian Lara is next to go - run out going for an ill-advised third run.
West Indies 34-1

9th over: Bond thinks he has his first wicket when Stephen Fleming brilliantly catches a ball spilled by Scott Styris at second slip. But Hinds did not get any bat on the delivery.

8th over: A costly over for New Zealand as Gayle hits successive fours off Adams' first three balls. A wide compunds the New Zealander's misery.

5th over: Gayle plays the first authoritative shot of the innings, finding the boundary despite a desperate chase by Nathan Astle.

4th over: New Zealand are clearly ready for the battle. In a sharp maiden over, Adams has an appeal for lbw turned down as West Indies struggle to find their stride.

3rd over: Nearly a disaster for West Indies as the opening pair go for a quick single. Bond is quickly onto the ball and throws down the stumps, but Chris Gayle survives.

49th over: Another good over for the Kiwis, nine runs coming helped by two no-balls.

48th over: Adams brings Kiwi supporters some cheer as he thrashes a Gayle half-volley for six. The next ball he is dropped by the sub Samuels at deep square leg.

47th over: Drakes is back and four runs plus a leg-bye come off his over.

46th over: Just three runs come off Gayle's over and the Windies must be fancying their chances now.

45th over: No boundaries come off another tight Hooper over.

44th over: The fast Gayle yorker, so brilliant in the West Indies win against South Africa, has its rewards again as Harris is bowled.
New Zealand 188-7

43rd over: McCullum gets lucky with a ridiculous scoop over his head that Jacobs cannot quite reach to catch.

42nd over: After McLean's disastrous over, Hooper turns to Chris Gayle. The part-time spinner makes a solid start, allowing three runs.

41st over: Drakes continues to impress with his accuracy. McCullum survives an lbw appeal and New Zealand can only move the scoreboard on two runs.

40th over: McLean returns to the attack and proves expensive, conceding nine runs.

39th over: Dillon finishes his 10 overs with a 1-28.

38th over: McCullum sweeps to square leg for four off Hooper in a rare bright spot for the Kiwis.

36th over: Another fine over from the Windies captain who allows only one run.

35th over: Dillon returns to the attack, replacing Hinds, but despite New Zealand's precarious position, Hooper elects not to use any slips.

33rd over: Hinds receives warm applause as he completes his 10 overs with impressive figures of 3-35.

32nd over: Hooper takes a fine catch to give Hinds his third wicket. Lou Vincent's demise puts New Zealand back in deep trouble.
New Zealand 147-6

30th over: Hinds strikes again, removing Cairns for 37. The batsman mistimes a cut to the boundary and Dillon collects the catch.
New Zealand 141-5

29th over: Another tight over from Hooper as New Zealand struggle to get the run rate up.

28th over: Astle looks distinctly aggrieved as he becomes fourth man out - Hinds leading a huge appeal from West Indies after the New Zealander appeared to edge a delivery to Ridley Jacobs.
New Zealand 130-4

26th over: Cairns continues to rack up singles, but Astle lights up the over with an on side drive which a diving Ramnaresh Sarwan cannot reach.

25th over: Hooper frustrates the batsmen once again, but Astle cuts loose on the final ball - dispatching the ball to third man for four.

24th over: New Zealand reach the halfway point in unspectacular style, with Astle and Cairns looking to dig in for a final flourish.

23rd over: Hooper joins the bowling attack, beginning with an uneventful over.

22nd over: Another miserly over from the impressive Hinds whose consistent line and length has the Kiwi batsmen on the back foot.

21st over: Drakes is unlucky to see an outside edge from Astle fly over first slip and reach the boundary. Another tidy single brings up the 100 for New Zealand.

20th over: Only one run from the over as the medium pace of Hinds frustrated the Kiwi batsmen.

19th over: Astle's cut away for four through backward point is the highlight of a surprisingly quiet over from the lively Drakes.

18th over: Four runs off the over for New Zealand.

17th over: A fascinating over with Drakes and Cairns going toe-to-toe. Cairns strikes the first blow with a massive six over deep square leg but Drakes replies with a series of fine deliveries - the first of which Hooper cannot hold at slip and it slides away for four.

16th over: Chris Cairns pulls to deep backward leg to get off the mark in fine style with a boundary.

15th over: Styris makes Drakes pay for a short and wide ball, dispatching it for four - but the New Zealander is tempted by another wide delivery and this time lofts a catch to Ricardo Powell.
New Zealand 66-3

14th over: Disappointment for the West Indies as Dillon is forced to leave the field. Carl Hooper turns instead to Wavell Hinds' medium pace and he opens with a solid over.

13th over: Drakes almost gets his second wicket in two overs with a confident lbw shout against Scott Styris, but umpire Darrell Hair decides the ball pitched outside off stump. It is nonetheless a superb maiden over for Drakes.

12th over: Windies captain Carl Hooper responds to an unimpressive opening spell from McLean by introducing Vasbert Drakes. The change has an immediate impact - Drakes firing the ball into the left-handed Vettori from around the wicket and uprooting the middle stump.
New Zealand 58-2

11th over: Dillon continues to cause the Kiwi batsmen problems and allows a miserly one run.

10th over: A good over for Astle who brings up the 50 for New Zealand with a well-timed pull for four. He finishes with another boundary - this time coming down the wicket to drive to long-off.

9th over: Astle is taking his time to get into his stride, and mistimes a couple of shots. Dillon makes another confident appeal for lbw.

8th over: Nathan Astle is off the mark already as McLean continues to struggle to make a breakthrough.

7th over: Fleming seems to have got the measure of Dillon, smashing a four to deep mid wicket before hooking the next delivery over the boundary for six. But Dillon's revenge is sweet and Fleming sends the bowler a simple return catch - departing for 25.
New Zealand 42-1

6th over: McLean is disconsolate as his first two balls are dispatched for four - the highlight a well-struck straight drive from Fleming. The Windies bowler's day goes from bad to worse when he concedes four leg byes.

5th over: Fleming continues to be troubled by the bowling of Dillon, but he survives and finishes the over with a quick single.

4th over: Vettori hits two successive fours off McLean. The first is a fortunate edge, but the second is the result of excellent timing from the part-time opener.

3rd over: Dillon has a good shout for lbw against Fleming but the umpire rightly decides that the ball would have missed off stump.

2nd over: Both New Zealand openers gets off the mark in Nixon McLean's first over of the World Cup. But Vettori is lucky to get away with a wild slash.

1st over New Zealand spring an immediate surprise as Daniel Vettori emerges to open the batting with Kiwi captain Stephen Fleming. Merv Dillon opens the bowling with a maiden.
