SIX! Tim Southee to Shivam Dube. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Finished in style. Dube hangs back in the crease, and flat-bats this over long on for a maximum.India cruise to victory. A magnificent performance from the visitors. They set the game up with their bowling, and timed the run chase superbly. Lokesh Rahul and Shreyas Iyer were the stars with the bat, and just took the game away from New Zealand. A lot to think about for the Kiwis, as they have been outplayed in these first two games.The next match in this five match series is on Wednesday, where the hosts have to win to prevent India from taking an unassailable lead.

OUT! Caught. Ish Sodhi to Shreyas Iyer. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Southee. That's a super grab by Tim Southee. Iyer wanted to finish this in a hurry, and put another one out of the park. Sodhi tosses it up high, it grips, and that results in the miscue. The ball goes extremely high, but Southee has a solid pair of hands. Swallowed in the deep.

FOUR! Blair Tickner to Shreyas Iyer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Exquisite from Shreyas Iyer.

FOUR! Hamish Bennett to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Much more in control of this. Rahul cracks it over extra cover, and the ball lands just inside for four. That brings up his fifty. A very sensible knock. Perfect tempo for this chase.

APPEAL! Blair Tickner to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, mis-timed to silly mid off for no runs, shy attempt by Tickner, direct hit by Southee, appeal made for Run Out. Huge chance for Tickner to get the breakthrough. Rahul is just stood out of the crease at the non-striker's end, as he thought a single was on. The bowler has all the time in the world to take aim and throw down the stumps, but he misses.
