10.00pm: Right, we're still catching our breaths after that one, but we'll do it offline now. It's a wrap for this game - the best one of the World Cup so far. Join us tomorrow for more.

Jason Holder: Tough game at the very end but I"m proud of the guys, especially Carlos. Having said that, still a lot of positives. You can probably pinpoint one or two areas where we fell down. We brought ourselves back a long way back into the game, I don't think you can fault the efforts. We lost wickets at crucial stages. We lost Hetty at a bad time. We've still got a lot to play for, we've got our pride to play for. We can still finish the tournament on a high.

Kane Williamson: (Boult) has got very good hands. We put a few down in the field today, but I suppose it all made for a fantastic finish. A bit too close for comfort. I thought the guys did an outstanding job in the roles they were given. You bring guys back to try and pick up wickets when required. Some of the striking from the West Indians is unrivalled so it really does put you under pressure. Any experience that you have that you can learn from is a good one. We've got a couple of tight games, but against strong opposition. Some things to learn from, some things to improve on. Every game is a tough one here and you want to be moving forward as a unit. We've made small steps but there is still a long way to go.

Kane Williamson is the Man of the Match."The West Indies side is incredibly dangerous. The power they pack through the order, we saw it today. [Earlier] They bowled really really well. They got the ball swinging and they hit the area fairly well on that surface. I was looking to play the merit of the ball, and make the best possible decisions."


Rajat: "New Zealand win by 5 inches!!! "

Soumith Potturi: "That catch is Boult's 5th wicket "

Gangnam: "Any fingernails left in the WI dugout? Sending my cardiac bill to Brathwaite. "

Brendan : "There's your match of the World Cup. "

Mr D: "Brathwaite you legend. I'm still here dejected and sad for brathwaite. Its 2.15AM here and I dont care. Carlos Brathwaite, Remember the name. "


9:44pm We know by now to remember the name. He doesn't let us forget. What a game. Brathwaite as hauled his team out of a collapse that read 5 for 22, and he's made them dream. In a swift moment, Boult has taken that dream away too. You can see it on their faces. Dejected to elated to dejected. That has been the story in that dressing room tonight. New Zealand vault to the top of the table and remain unbeaten. But they have got a jolt and they'll be grateful it has come reasonably early in the tournament.

Neesham to Brathwaite, OUT, has he done it? No! Boult plucks it at long-on! Two drops for Boult since the last game, but he's held on when it's mattered! They're checking for no-ball...it's well behind the line. This is heartbreak for Brathwaite. So close. Short ball at middle, he pulled it, but slightly from under again. Ended up slicing it, with no room. It was to Boult's right. He leaped, he held on, he balanced on his right foot. That is solid work under pressure. Both batsmen on their knees, and then Brathwaite gets up with a smile. He did his all, and then some. But it was always unlikely. And you feel like he knows that. Smiles from his opponents as they offer their commiserations. It's all shakes. It could have so easily been the other way round...

Neesham to Brathwaite, no run, legcutter, short and spinning past off stump as he shapes to pull and is deceived again. Beaten. This is a great over from Neesham

Neesham to Brathwaite, 2 runs, pulls out to deep midwicket and comes back for the second! What. An. Innings. He doesn't get to do a lot very often, down at No. 8. But every time he finds himself in this situation, he shines through. A maiden ODI hundred. An unlikely win in sight. Takes his helmet off, blows a kiss. Back to it.

Point, cover comes in, extra cover, mid-off in

Neesham to Brathwaite, no run, beaten again. Short and wide outside off. Once again he's gone for the pull. Misses again

Surely he's thinking 8 off 4
