CWC15 LIVE - Guptill Double Ton Pulverises Windies

#NewZealand vs #WestIndies
21st Mar 2015

#MartinGuptill has changed from 2nd gear to 6th past his century.
His first hundred was steady, controlled to lay out a platform.
His second one, is a city of skyscrapers
He has just exploded and taken the Windies by the scruff of their neck.

Poor Windies! they are getting used to this now.
The Proteas pummelled them for 400+ at SCG and the way Kiwis and Guptill are going, that didn't seem too far away either. But, they did fall short off that mark by 7 runs! 

Wellington crowd is having a gala time enjoying the super entertainment.
Magnificent performance from Guptill!

NZ: 393 for 6, 50 overs
Guptill - 237*
Vettori - 8*

CWC15 LIVE - Guptill Century Drives NZ vs WI

#NewZealand vs #WestIndies
21st Mar 2015

Riding his luck of a dropped chance early in his innings, #MartinGuptill has cashed in  big time (this has been a trend in this #CWC15 to score hundreds after dropped chances)

He's completed a superb century and looking good to take his bat through. He, along with Kiwi powerhitters (Taylor, Anderson, Ronchi), will now take centrestage at the backend of this innings to give this a big push towards 350.

The powerplay is already going NZ way. Guptill has unleashed big time with some awesome hitting against the seamers and spinners alike.

233 for 3, 39 overs
#Guptill - 145*
#Anderson - 0*

CWC15 - NZ bat first, In Strong Position At Halfway Stage

#NewZealand vs #WestIndies
21st Mar 2015

New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first in their quarterfinal clash vs West Indies at Welllington.

#BrendonMcCullum started off in usual fashion bludgeoning boundaries upfront but was short lived.
Trying one too many he spooned a catch

NZ 28 for 1

#MartinGuptill at the other end was dropped by Marlon Samuels. A huge opportunity missed by the Windies to strangle the Kiwis upfront.

#KaneWilliamson, the steady No.3, came in and calmed things down and took control along with #MartinGuptill, who had steadied by then and looking to bat through the innings. Both put on a steady stand before Williamson push one from #Russel towards cover to #ChrisGayle who juggled a bit but held on to the simple chance.

NZ 89 for 2

#RossTaylor, getting back in some form in last two innings, joined Guptill and they brought some urgency in scoring. Both have steadied the ship and looking to unleash at the back end of the innings.  

West Indies bowling, looks mediocre, but they are in the game.
Interesting second half of the Kiwi innings in the offing with pinch hitters #CoreyAnderson and #LukeRochi waiting in the wings.  

New Zealand: 155 for 2, 29 overs
#MartinGuptill - 82*
#RossTaylor - 24*

CWC 2015 LIVE - Windies Bowlers Strike Back To Make It Interesting v India

#WestIndies v #India , #WACA, #Perth

West Indies bowlers have struck baack and how?
With their backs against the proverbial wall, the seam bowlers have come hard at India and reaped dividends for their discipline, pace and bounce.

Going in with all quicks against this India batting line up on a lively pitch like #WACA seems to be have been a thought-out decision. All wickets to fall so far have been due to bounce or pace off the wicket.

First two to go were beauties in swing bowling. Pitched on the stump and swung away late taking the edges behind the stumps. #ShikharDhawan was claimed by #DarrenSammy in the second slip while #RohitSharma was caught behind by #DeneshRamdin. #JeromeTaylor the bowler on both occasions. 

Next to go was #ViratKohli trying to pull a bouncing #AndreRussell delivery and spooning a simple catch at long leg. Bounce undid him as with some of the WI top order batsmen.

#AjinkyaRahane's patient vigil at the crease was undone by a superfast delivery by #KemarRoach. The edge flew to the #wicket-keeper. Rahane reviewed the OUT decision and after several camera angles and inconclusive evidence, the third umpire decided to uphold the umpire's decision.

#SureshRaina and his inability to face the bouncing delivery was exposed yet again when he tried to slap a innocuous delivery from #DwayneSmith and edged it behind.

#Live #Cricket #Score:
India - 109 for 5 in 23.3 overs.

Skipper #MSDhoni will be India's biggest hope to drive them home from this precarious position.
He has #RavindraJadeja and the bowlers to cross the line.  The only plus for them is they dont have any run pressure so they can bide their time.

Kudos to WI for this fightback.
Yet again in this world cup, the sub 200 totals are becoming a headache for teams chasing!
Wonderful atmosphere at the #WACA. Cracking game in the offing....

CWC 2015 LIVE - Gayle Stikes 2 Blows In One Over

#SA v #WI #LIVE at #SCG
27th Feb 2015

Just when South Africa seemed to be beginning to turn the heat on scoring, #ChrisGayle has struck twice in one over!

Firsr, he had #FafDuPlessis caught behind by #DeneshRamdin.
Two balls later, he trapped the well set #HashimAmla plumb in front of the stumps. Both set batsmen out makes it even-steven yet again!

Two new batsmen, #ABDevilliers and #RileeRossouw at the crease.
Need to rebuild their innings again. WI will look to attack and put more pressure on the SA middle and lower order

Score: 170 for 3 in 33 overs.


CWC 2015 LIVE - Where Are My Shoes? Amla

#SA v #WI at #SCG
27th Feb 2015

A funny incident happened at the SCG during the SA batting innings.

#HashimAmla flicked one of the pads to midwicket and set off for a run.
In the process, he stepped on one of his shoe and it came off. He limped over to the other end since it was a comfortable single.

#FafDuPlessis at the other end saw the funny side of it, smiled, picked up the shoe and handed it over to him. Some fun ...


CWC 2015 LIVE - SA Off To A Cautious Start at SCG

#SA v #WI at the #SCG

SA off to a cautious start
90 for 2 in 21 overs.

#HashimAmla and #FafduPlessis at the crease steadily building an innings.
#QuintonDeKock is out for 12 off #JeromeTaylor.
