View dismissal BB McCullum c Mohammad Sami b Abdur Rehman 33 36 29 5 0 113.79
8.3 60.3 mph, extra bounce! McCullum sweeps again, this time goes square, and the bounce takes the top edge that settles down the lap of deep square leg. Spinners exercising a choke hold here 55/3
View dismissal JD Ryder c Abdur Rehman b Mohammad Sami 7 19 8 1 0 87.50
3.5 88.5 mph, he has picked out deep square leg! Looked like a good shot, a flick-chip to a length ball, but he sort of forgot the fielder placed there. Not a mis-hit, it went where he wanted it, but a miscalculation there 34/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Umar Akmal b Abdur Rehman 2 9 10 0 0 20.00
6.1 51.3 mph, and the frustration shows and gets Pakistan a wicket! Comes down the track, is not quite to the pitch of it, and mis-hits it towards long-on where Umar Akmal takes a superb diving-forward catch. he tries for the two-handed catch, can't reach it, but gets the right hand under it. Top stuff 41/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 3 10 7 0 0 42.85
9.2 89.0 mph, don't let Afridi touch you today, you might turn to gold! After a horrible opening spell, Sami comes back and strikes second ball. It's back of a length, gives him width, Taylor goes hard at it, and is not close to it, and gets a fine outside edge 58/4
View dismissal DL Vettori* run out (Mohammad Sami/Saeed Ajmal) 38 45 34 1 2 111.76
19.5 Saeed Ajmal to NL McCullum, hit to long-off, and Vettori sacrifices his wicket going for a non-existent second 127/7
View dismissal SB Styris b Shahid Afridi 21 18 17 1 1 123.52
14.4 62.4 mph, played on! Pakistan pull NZ back again. It's Afridi's pace again. No niceties such as flight and spin. Just fired it in around off, Styris looks to run it down, and gets the bottom edge onto the stumps 98/5
View dismissal GJ Hopkins c Abdur Rehman b Shahid Afridi 2 6 7 0 0 28.57
16.4 54.3 mph, lovely bowling, flights this one up, speed in the late 80s, Hopkins sees this is the only ball he can hit, and slog-sweeps, gets a top edge and holes out to deep midwicket 104/6

View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Mills 5 10 8 0 0 62.50
1.6 78.3 mph, Mills comes back! slower ball, loopy, outside off, Akmal goes for the big drive, gets a big inside edge onto the stumps 15/1
Salman Butt not out 67 91 54 8 1 124.07
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Hopkins b Bond 8 3 4 2 0 200.00
2.6 87.7 mph, Bond comes back beautifully! An absolute peach. Back of a length, just outside off, holding its line and kicking at him, takes the edge as he looks to defend it. Top bowling 24/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Hopkins b Mills 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
3.2 83.5 mph, New Zealand on fire here! Digs this one in short, no room there, Umar leans back to run this down to third man, and it bounces at him, and all Umar can manage is an edge to the keeper even as he is looking to withdraw from the shot 25/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Butler 3 12 13 0 0 23.07
7.1 83.6 mph, and Gould's second mistake in two overs, after missing that Butt edge! The wrong man ends up paying, though. There is an inside edge on this and he is given lbw. Back of a length, around off, nips in sharply, gets the edge onto the back pad, over the knee flap. Too much doubt to give this one, even if it hit the back leg 42/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c NL McCullum b Butler 11 10 9 1 0 122.22
9.4 83.8 mph, what a catch by Nathan McCullum. This evens out the screamer from Umar Akmal earlier in the day. Pulled towards deep midwicket, dying on him, McCullum charges in, dives full length, gets his hands under it. He also needs to adjust for the wind, because the ball suddenly seems to hold up on him: it was hit into the wind. Afridi should have stayed back and asked for the replay, this one was close to bouncing in front of him. But after two-three replays, I will venture and say it bounced in his fingers, and he then controlled it 58/5
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Taylor b NL McCullum 29 24 29 1 3 100.00
17.5 59.1 mph, and Nathan McCullum delivers the big wicket at a crucial juncture again! Shortish delivery, Razzaq pulls, but the extra bounce does him in, the top edge settles down Taylor's throat at the edge of the midwicket boundary 111/6
View dismissal Abdur Rehman c Guptill b Butler 2 14 3 0 0 66.66
19.6 no we won't! Rehman gets a dream ball, length ball, angled into the pads, and he lofts it into the leg side. They run for dear life, but it has carried to deep square leg for a simple catch 132/7
