View dismissal Imran Nazir c Redmond b Bond 58 48 38 5 4 152.63
11.2 an important wicket, lands on a good length outside off, makes room and slices it straight into the palms of Redmond at third man 92/3
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Bond b Southee 13 24 15 2 0 86.66
5.5 Kamran's gone, tried to clear mid-on but didn't get it off the middle, chipped it to Bond who ran a few paces to his right and snapped a testing chance 34/1
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Watling b Styris 3 10 6 0 0 50.00
7.6 the slower one does the trick, Umar was going for everything out there and tried to slog-sweep that good-length delivery over midwicket, was deceived by the pace and got the top edge, Watling, running back, took a well-judged overhead catch. His debut catch, that 56/2
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Southee b Redmond 24 19 16 2 1 150.00
12.4 brilliantly taken by Southee, Afridi's staying his ground. Tossed up outside off, he took it from a good length, coming down the track, and struck it hard and flat towards long-off where Southee, taking a couple of steps coming in, snaps it inches from the ground, an excellent low catch and replays confirm it was clean 101/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c & b Redmond 6 15 7 0 0 85.71
14.5 Redmond imitates the Afridi celebration again! Tossed up again, lands on a length on middle and Malik drills it straight back to him and he accepts it gleefully, bending to his left 116/5
View dismissal Fawad Alam c Butler b Bond 15 18 14 0 0 107.14
17.2 short, Butler, who's had a bad day today, ends up taking a sharp catch at third man, it was cut hard towards him but he managed to cup it in front of his face, slipped and crashed on his back but held on 134/6
Abdul Razzaq not out 26 23 15 3 1 173.33
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c NL McCullum b Southee 12 9 8 1 1 150.00
19.3 almost cleared the ropes again but got far more elevation than he would have wanted, in the slot on middle and he picked it well in his attempt to clear long-on but couldn't quite succeed, Nathan McCullum judged it to perfection 158/7
View dismissal Mohammad Amir c sub (JEC Franklin) b Southee 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
19.6 attempting the scoop over short-fine, it's a full toss on the off stump, gets the top edge and Franklin takes it well running to his back 161/8

View dismissal BB McCullum* c Fawad Alam b Mohammad Amir 19 14 13 3 0 146.15
2.6 catching practice, thank you very much, says Fawad Alam, he reaches out to a pitched up delivery outside off and the ball travels quickly off the face of the bat to backward point, Fawad didn't have to move much at all 33/2
View dismissal MJ Guptill c †Kamran Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 8 6 4 2 0 200.00
1.5 excellent reflexes! Not the best of deliveries - full and wide outside off and asking to be smashed on the front foot, Guptill flays at it and the ball catches the thick outside edge and Kamran Akmal falls to his right and plucks it one handed 25/1
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 5 9 8 1 0 62.50
4.2 thick edge! well that run-out chance didnt cost anything, he reaches out to a pitched up delivery outside off gets a thick edge on the drive to Akmal 34/3
View dismissal SB Styris c Umar Akmal b Abdul Razzaq 4 16 5 1 0 80.00
6.2 another one bites the dust and New Zealand are in trouble, it was a friendly short delivery which sat up nicely and Styris went for the pull but perhaps didn't spot the fielder in the deep, straight down Umar Akmal's throat at deep square leg 41/4
View dismissal BJ Watling st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 22 43 36 1 0 61.11
15.5 he tries to go over the top by advancing down the pitch, Ajmal cleverly cuts back on the pace and beats the batsman in flight, easy stumping and Watling doesn't have time to drag his foot back 95/6
View dismissal NT Broom c Umar Gul b Abdul Razzaq 14 12 16 0 1 87.50
10.2 catching practice again, Broom makes room to try something different and upset the bowler's rhythm, he gets on his knee and tries to slice it over third man but the ball dips and lands straight on Gul's palms 67/5
View dismissal NL McCullum c Umar Gul b Saeed Ajmal 22 24 21 0 0 104.76
17.6 chips down the track to deposit it over long-on, he gets underneath the ball but doesn't get enough elevation, easy take for Gul 106/8
View dismissal IG Butler b Shahid Afridi 1 2 4 0 0 25.00
16.6 he fires this one towards the pads on seeing the batsman make a bit of room, the ball clips his pads and hits the top of leg stump, Butler seemed to suggest that he wasn't ready, by the time he looked up Afridi was ready to deliver, perhaps he should have backed away 98/7
