    Rain has stopped play in Christchurch. New Zealand are 104 for 1 in 18 overs and they need 116 more to win off the remaning 32 over to win the game. It seems like a cakewalk for them from here.

  • 12:45 (IST)


    Finn Allen finally departs for 57 runs. It was not a wicket-taking delivery to be honest but Umran Malik was lucky there. He bowled short and wide outside off stump to Allen, who toe-ended it to Suryakumar Yadav at cover.

    NZ 97/1 (16.3)

  • 12:40 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: Fifty for Finn Allen!

    A six from Finn Allen over long-off and with it he races to his half-century. He started his innings a bit carefully, struggled to time the ball, rode his luck but then gained confidence and eventually races to his fifty.

  • 12:30 (IST)

  • 12:01 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: Another close chance!

    Arshdeep Singh had almost trapped Finn Allen but the batter is riding his luck today. It was a bouncer delivery and Allen edged it in the air but the ball fell short of Washington Sundar at fine leg. To add salt to injury, the ball ran for a four.

    IND vs NZ LIVE: A chance there!

    Finn Allen almost played the ball back into the hands of Arshdeep Singh, but to the batter’s good luck but the ball rose over the bowler’s head to a fair bit to escape him. Poor luck for India, they are bowling well but a wicket has been eluding them.

    NZ 19/0 (5.4)

  • 11:46 (IST)


    That’s a good shot from Devon Conway. Deepak Chahar offered him a fuller delivery outside off stump and Conway leaned and comfortably played a drive from the sweeper cover region for a four. 

    NZ 13/0 (4.4)

  • 11:41 (IST)


    A poor delivery down the leg stump from Arshdeep Singh and Finn Allen accepts the offering with both his hands. The Kiwi batter flicked it for an easy four to the left of wicketkeeper for a four. It was so fine that the fielder at deep had no chance.

    NZ 9/0 (3.3)

  • 11:39 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: Disciplined bowling attack!

  • 11:30 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: Magical bowling from Arshdeep Singh!

  • 11:25 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: Play resumes!

  • 10:45 (IST)

  • 10:26 (IST)

    IND vs NZ LIVE: New Zealand dictate terms!

    New Zealand pacers continue to dominate the Indian batters. The visitors have lost seven wickets.

    IND 184/7 (42)

  • 10:01 (IST)

  • 09:58 (IST)


    Good shot from Washington Sundar this is! It was a short ball from Tim Southee outside off stump and Sundar pulled it for a four towards deep mid-wicket. The Indian southpaw is looking well settled at the crease.

    IND 164/6 (35.4)

  • 09:47 (IST)


    Deepak Hooda is gone! It’s a good review from New Zealand that awards them the lucky wicket. Tim Southee bowled a short ball on good height down the leg side. Hooda missed his pull and umpire gave it a wide. An unconvinced New Zealand skipper went for a review and UltraEdge confirmed there was a spike when the ball passed Hooda’s bat.
