Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, strays down leg side with his first ball


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good length outside off, Nazir moves forward and plays towards cover


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, Southee appeals after hitting the pads with a delivery that angles into the right-hander, Hafeez tried to play to square leg but missed, that ball was perhaps missing leg stump


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, shortish ball around off stump, Hafeez punches the ball from his crease through midwicket and finds the gap, the timing on it is good as well


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, another short ball and Hafeez pulls hard, sending the ball racing towards deep square leg, where Nicol runs to his right and slides to save the boundary


Southee to Imran Nazir, no run, Nazir tries to whip the ball off his pads but the length is too full, Southee appeals once again but the impact was a touch high on the front pad


Southee to Imran Nazir, 1 run, full ball on middle stump, turned towards midwicket for a single

Pakistan 28/0   TG Southee 1-0-7-0

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, Southee makes his third appeal and once again it is unsuccessful, Hafeez tried to swivel and pull but the ball was not short enough. The impact was too high on the pad, I think. In fact the ball hit the back thigh


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, shorter length and this time Hafeez connects with the pull, hitting the ball to deep square leg


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


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

Imran Nazir c & b Southee 25 (25m 16b 5x4 0x6) SR: 156.25


Southee to Nasir Jamshed, 2 runs, too straight, Jamshed gets going with a nice clip off the back foot, placed wide of the fielder at mid-on


Southee to Nasir Jamshed, 2 runs, full length on the pads, Jamshed clips the ball neatly towards deep midwicket

Pakistan 51/1   TG Southee 2-0-16-1

Southee to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, full and straight, Malik drives and hits the ball in front of square leg


Southee to Umar Akmal, 1 run, another very full ball around off stump, steered towards third man


Southee to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, Malik has a slog and mis-timed the ball towards long-on, Southee's line and length has been un-hittable so far in this over


Southee to Umar Akmal, no run, a full ball in the blockhole wide outside off stump, Akmal made room and then wasn't in a position to play any sort of shot


Southee to Umar Akmal, no run, superb ball, in the blockhole and very wide outside off stump but not wide enough to be called a wide, Akmal can't play a shot


Southee to Umar Akmal, no run, another blockhole delivery to end an excellent over, Akmal plays it back to the bowler

Pakistan 148/4   TG Southee 3-0-19-1

Southee to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, it doesn't start well for Southee, Malik goes back in his crease to get under the length of the ball and drives it in the air and into the gap on the extra cover boundary


Southee to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, in the blockhole on middle stump, Malik swings the ball on the leg side


Southee to Shahid Afridi, no run, wide outside off stump, just inside the tram line, Afridi had cleared his front foot to hit on the leg side and he couldn't play the ball


Southee to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, in the blockhole outside off stump, Afridi digs it out and drives through cover, Williamson fumbles the pick up and they run a second


Southee to Shahid Afridi, 1 wide, that's on the tramline wide outside off stump, and the umpire's called it a wide


Southee to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Afridi's ready for the ball outside off stump this time and he bashes it flat and wide of the fielder at long off, one-bounce four


Southee to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Afridi throws his bat at a length ball outside off and hits it in the air towards deep cover, where Williamson moves in to take the catch

Shahid Afridi c Williamson b Southee 12 (8m 6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 200.00
