Time for the presentation...
Earlier in the game, the New Zealand batters were in devastating form and they began attacking right from the first over. This reached a total of 254 courtesy half-centuries from Mark Chapman and Michael Bracewell. There were short cameos from Daryl Mitchell, Dane Cleaver, and James Neesham that contributed to the massive score. Scotland bowlers failed to find the right line and length and were plundered all over the field. Chris Greaves was once again the only player who seemed like he could bowl with any sort of control.
New Zealand have had a pretty easy outing and looked completely in control right from the word go. Seven bowlers were used and six of them had at least a wicket under their belt. This has been a great opportunity for the Kiwis to understand their squad strength building up to the T20 World Cup. If there is anything they need to rectify in this almost flawless performance, is the fact that they should have been able to take all ten wickets. They would have been hoping for a better challenge as the game was already pretty much won by the batters.
Scotland were never really in this game chasing a mammoth target and fell even more behind when they lost their top order in no time. They were reduced to 37 for the loss of four wickets and when skipper Richie Berrington departed next with the team total on 67, the crowd was seen exiting the stadium. Chris Greaves played a cameo and has looked by far the best player on the team. He along with the tail managed to push the total beyond the 150 mark but were well short.
The brings an end to a pretty one-sided affair. Scotland have been unable to put up a fight in either of the games and have lost the series 2-0 to the visitors. New Zealand seal an easy win by a margin in excess of 100. Despite resting their big guns, the visitors have cruised through this T20I series.
