(Colombo 9th ODI - 02 Aug 2001)

The square drive was a particular favourite of Nathan Astle who went on to make the 11th century of his limited overs career. Astle's dominance of the bowling put the Indians on the back foot. While they continued to peg away at the other end, Astle remained firm to the very end. Making 108 (198 mins, 143 balls, nine fours) Astle took the New Zealand total to 247 in the 48th over. Some good strokeplay from Lou Vincent (45) ensured that New Zealand reached an imposing score of 264 in 50 overs.
