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

3.3

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

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

4.5

Oram to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, full ball outside off stump, Hafeez moves forward and drives the ball in the air and over the in field at cover, Oram's first over is going terribly

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

10.2

Mills to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, Jamshed carves the ball with his wrists over point and finds the gap on the boundary, he had width outside off and he went hard at the ball

Pakistan 96/1   Nasir Jamshed 32* (16b 1x4 3x6)   KD Mills 2.2-0-16-0

12.4

Oram to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, this is surgical placement from Jamshed. He's flicked the ball to the right of the fielder at midwicket and to the left of the man at long-on. Terrific batting

16.1

Mills to Umar Akmal, FOUR, Akmal moved towards the off side, got down low to scoop, and turned his head away as he made contact. He made good contact, scooping the ball over the fielder at short fine leg

Pakistan 139/4   Umar Akmal 7* (4b 1x4)   KD Mills 3.1-0-29-0

16.2

Mills to Umar Akmal, FOUR, a delicate late dab this time against a length ball outside off, placing it fine enough to reach the third man boundary
