Shoaib Akhtar to Astle, OUT, the leg stump is laying on the ground, dead to the world, thru the gate, Astle has been put out of his misery

New Zealand 20/1   * (b)   Shoaib Akhtar 2.3-0-14-1

Wasim Akram to McMillan, OUT, the usual crappy lack of footwork from McMillan, trying to slap the ball into the covers, jumping as well, outside edge, easy keeper's catch

New Zealand 38/2   * (b)   Wasim Akram 5.3-0-16-1

Abdul Razzaq to Horne, OUT, brilliant yorker, even the batsman thinks so, thru the gate, batsman playing over the top of it, middle stump knocked way out of the ground, Horne looks up and gives a somewhat unneeded nod of approval to the bowler

New Zealand 176/5   * (b)   Abdul Razzaq 6.3-0-21-2

Wasim Akram to Parore, OUT, stepping back to make room, late cut just clips the off bail, Parore the goose doesn't realise and is still running the second, wondering why Pakistan are hugging in the middle of the pitch

New Zealand 211/7   * (b)   Wasim Akram 8.4-0-32-2
