The video shows the tremendous sixes and boundaries hit by the McCullum right from the start till the tenth over. The ball on which he got out is also covered. That was a bit unfortunate because the ball might have landed between the two fielders, in this case, it went straight into the hands of Hastings who covered some distance to catch a good catch. McCullum had good intentions, he wanted the ball to go above the ropes again. Hastings did lovely job to hold on to the ball as he fell down.
That was definitely the highest shot of this match today. The skipper played it magnificently. He was in the momentum and was hitting sixes, just in the style to finish his 50, he played a shot very powerfully but it went way too high in the air. The brave Hastings was applauded by his team mates who came running to congratulate him. He not only got rid of the dangerous McCullum but he also slowed the fiery batting smacking of Brandon for New Zealand.
As McCullum started to walk back towards the dressing room, the score was just under 90 runs for NewZealand. The first wicket partnership was going well above 100 runs if the captain had been a little bit patient. That shot was a bit out of his adventurous mood. The ball went high into the air instead of over the boundary. That was the unfavorable thing that went wrong for the Kiwis but this innings won them the match surely. Brave job Captain !!
