0.6

2.1

Mills to Imran Nazir, 1 run, played off the pads behind square and that's Nazir's first run

2.3

Mills to Imran Nazir, FOUR, splendid timing, Nazir goes back to a length delivery and punches the ball through the gap at cover. Not much wrong with that ball but he connected superbly

2.4

Mills to Imran Nazir, 2 runs, this time he goes airborne, lofting the ball off his pads towards cow corner, Nazir didn't make perfect contact and the ball falls safely in the deep

2.5

4.1

Oram to Imran Nazir, no run, played off the front foot towards cover

4.2

Oram to Imran Nazir, FOUR, Nazir steps down the pitch and slashes, aiming to whack the ball over the off side, he gets a thick edge that flies over where first slip would have been. The ball was short of a length and outside off stump

4.3

Oram to Imran Nazir, FOUR, this is a better shot, a short-arm pull that sends the short of a length ball racing to the backward square leg boundary

Pakistan 37/0   Imran Nazir 21* (14b 4x4)

5.3

Southee to Imran Nazir, FOUR, Nazir backs away towards leg to try and hit through cover, the ball is full and straight. Nazir ends up driving straight and beats the bowler and mid-off. I suspect the ball hit the inside half of the bat

5.4

Southee to Imran Nazir, OUT, caught and bowled! Nazir's pushed the ball off the front foot right back to Southee, who takes the catch on his follow through. New Zealand have snapped a strong opening stand. Southee caught the ball at chest height to his left
