Neil: "Taylor is closing in on a few milestones that hopefully he will pass by the end of the summer. He's just over 300 runs away from 7,000 ODI runs, and 400 runs away from moving ahead of Nathan Astle into second on the all-time list of most ODI runs for New Zealand."

Kapil: "@Rmarsh: I believe both the guys you mentioned aren't in squad and Ambris was a part but got injured. I still feel WI are carrying Holder as Captain. A genuine bowler would have added more but I'm not sure if they'll let Holder go before the World Cup. Pollard as captain would be my choice for next 4-5 years, if he is willing to stick and forego T20 riches except for IPL" --- Miller is in there, Ambris is out, yes. And Blackwood isn't in the squad.

End of over 38. 4 runs this over. 205/4 after 228 balls.
HM Nicholls 3 (3b 0x4 0x6 ) AR Nurse 10-0-55-2
LRPL Taylor 36 (59b 2x4 0x6 ) more

End of Nurse's spell. He wasn't picked for the T20I series initially, remember. Came in for Narine. He's going to have a longer tour, and has started decently.

Rmarsh: "I agree with Kapil that Gabriel and Mohamed should be left out, but my replacements would be Miller and Blackwood, if Ambris is still injured."

Everything in autopilot now.

Kapil: "Unless Gabriel takes a 5 fer and wins the game for WI, 2 definite changes for next game would be to drop both Mohammed and Gabriel, and pick Cotterel and Kyle Hope. WI should be aggressive in their approach and look to score 300+ irrespective of Gayle firing"

Thanks Sreshth. Things look easy out there for the batsman. New Zealand's newly minted No. 5 Tom Latham is out there now. Third slip is in place.

Varun's back to take you through till the end. Enjoy the rest of the game!

Off for a coffee. Here's Shresth.

Ben: "@Bruce, yes but his singles are all coming at the end of the over, which is why he's faced twice the number of balls as Munro"

Bruce Dockary: "GK, that is a strange comment. Have a look at Worker's scorecard, he is rotating the strike with plenty of singles."
Gareth: "@Ben. Shall we turn out focus to getting Munro into the test side then? FC average of 50+ at a run a ball. Can't fathom how he's not gotten a run."

Ben: "A proud moment for George Worker and family but an even prouder one for the hundreds of ESPNCricinfo commenters who have been lobbying for his inclusion in the national team for the past 18 months. Congrats to all!"

GK: "Would like to see Worker rotate the strike a bit more. Munro wants to give them all an early mark, but he's just knocking it around. "

He's dabbed so much, you'd think he's a teenager

Tony: "WI bowling unfortunately showing the difference between a good side, and a mediocre / poor side. They are bowling some good balls and generating some chances, but in there's too many bad balls and not much variation which releases the pressure on the batsmen."

Ravindu: "@ Paul Gardner, Jayasooriya & Tharanga, Dicwella & Gunathilake, Gunathilake & Tharanga" --- Might have had Kusal Perera in there at some point too.

Ben: "Looking at the shot wheels, one batsman is hitting almost exclusively front foot, and the other almost exclusively off the back! doesn't matter that they're both lefties if they mix it up like that!"

Seems to be a problem with Jason Holder's ankle here. The physio has come out...and he's quickly off too. Holder's back on his feet.
