Right then. That is all we have from this game. Don't go anywhere as the highly anticipated clash between India and Afghanistan will be getting underway at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Switch your tabs and catch all the action from that game. Cheers!
Kane Williamson, the skipper of New Zealand, says that Guptill is a Powerplayer and it was good for him as it was a much-needed run for him and also for Glenn Phillips. Says that games are coming thick and fast and they will recover fast to get ready for the next game. Adds that there are a few things they want to work on. Tells that every game is important and they focus on each game and most importantly on the way they play their cricket.
Kyle Coetzer, the skipper of Scotland, says that they had opportunities but they weren't able to take those in the middle which cost them. Credits Martin Guptill by saying it was a fantastic knock from him. Tells that it was a very good pitch to bat on. Adds that he tried to change the pace in the middle so he rotated the bowlers and hence did not give the spinners all overs at a stretch. Goes on to say that it was one of their best performances of the Super 12 stage and they will need to stay in the game for as long as possible to secure a win going forward.
....Stay tuned to hear from the skippers...
MARTIN GUPTILL IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He says that they did not have a great start but then he had to assess the situation. Says he has played cricket with Glenn Phillips and it was necessary to build a partnership with him. Adds that the game against Afghanistan won't be easy but they have to be ready.
The Kiwis will be glad that it worked out for them, in the end. A total of 172 seemed to be a good one but with the way some of the Scottish batters played early on, you would think that they could take this game even more closer, but the Black Caps did enough to cross the finish line. Chipping away with the wickets was the key for them and they did that well. The change of bowlers by Williamson also was important as when he got Southee and Boult back on, in the middle overs, they delivered and broke the partnerships that were building. Mitchell Santner was very economical in the middle overs, conceding only 23 runs in his quota of 4 overs. Trent Boult impressed once again, ending with figures of 4-0-29-2. Sodhi was another one, ending with 2 wickets to his name, but he had an expensive outing. Southee was lethal too with his smart bowling, as he finished with one wicket.
Scotland fought hard and valiantly in this game but lost the plot towards the end. Even though they lost their skipper early in the Powerplay, a decent stand between George Munsey and Matthew Cross of 45 runs helped keep the scoreboard ticking. Both of them fell in quick succession and the Scots were under some pressure. Calum MacLeod and Richie Berrington tried to up the tempo and they did score a couple of boundaries but they were not able to continue as in the span of 4 runs, both of them departed. The run rate kept creeping up and the Scottish batters were not able to keep up, but, Michael Leask did show some fight towards the end with his unbeaten knock of 42, from just 20 balls, but they fell short by 16 runs and remain winless in the tournament.
Not the easiest win for the Kiwis as they had to work hard to gather these two points, but, in the end, their experience and skill have shone brightly as they have won their second game of the Super 12, beating Scotland by 16 runs. This win also means that they take another important step towards making the semis. Scotland tried hard and pushed right towards the end, but, it was just not meant to be as they are yet to open their account in the Super 12s.

DRINKS! 97 runs needed in 60 balls. This game is beautifully set up for a thriller as Scotland are keeping up with the required run rate. New Zealand though will look for wickets at quick intervals. Their spinners will play a key role in this middle phase. Tim Southee is back into the attack.
