View dismissal MJ Guptill b Shahid Afridi 57 123 86 6 0 66.27
28.5 wicket No. 15 for Afridi, he adopts his regulation celebratory pose with both arms outstretched, it was a flighted and full ball, Guptill moved forward and wanted to whip it to the leg side, he misses the straight delivery and is bowled, an annoyed Guptill walks off 112/3
View dismissal BB McCullum b Shoaib Akhtar 6 3 3 0 1 200.00
0.4 86.5 mph, the aeroplane takes off early at Pallekele, Shoaib goes through Brendon with a peach that pitches way outside off, he goes out to push at it, but to his horror it comes back a long way, and hits off stump, kept a bit low, and there was a mile-long gap between bat and pad, Baz just went pushing at it from the crease almost 8/1
View dismissal JM How lbw b Umar Gul 4 50 29 0 0 13.79
12.3 91.5 mph, Gul ends How's misery finally after threatening to do so before, gets one spot on, full and hurrying on to the stumps with the angle, in the rut that How is in, no way he was going to hit that one, struck on the pads, and Gul's persistent appeal gets a positive decision from the umpire for Pakistan, How doesn't bother to review, was there an inside edge? there was a sound, it was also hitting middle of middle 55/2

29.1 56.5 mph, review time, Hafeez raps Franklin on the pads and on-field umpire Harper says that's out after a long long time, a tossed up delivery from round the wicket that pitched outside off, and turned in towards Franklin, who plays outside the line of that one, is struck on the pads around off and that was going on to hit middle, Taylor asks Franklin to review that, no use, Franklin's on his way 113/4
View dismissal SB Styris lbw b Umar Gul 28 52 37 1 0 75.67
41.6 88.4 mph, Gul has his man now, bowled it very full on the stumps, Scott went walking across the stumps towards the off side this time, all over the place really, missed on the flick across the line, and umpire Harper thought for a while before sending Styris on his way, they think about a review but decide against it, that would have taken out middle and leg 175/5
View dismissal NL McCullum b Umar Gul 19 16 10 1 2 190.00
45.5 65.2 mph, Gul gets him now, it is the slower one, Nathan did not pick it, went for the heave and inside edged the ball on to the stumps, the off bail is removed, that's all Gull needs as he sets off in celebration 210/6

49.3 55.2 mph, Oram departs now, it doesn't matter, he has played his part, went for another maximum over long on, but this time it wasn't monstrous enough, and settled into the fielder's hands 295/7

1.2 85.3 mph, more bad news for Pakistan, Southee has struck, hang on, Hafeez is reviewing the lbw, it was pitching on off, short of length ball, hits Hafeez, who is stuck on the crease, on the knee roll, he was looking to work that to square leg, umpire Llong raises the finger, Hafeez has a long chat with Shehzad before going for the review, it may have just shaved leg stump, that decision is left to the on-field umpire, so Hafeez is gone, 5/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Mills 10 29 16 1 0 62.50
6.1 Mills has got the wicket his bowling seemed on the verge of getting, once more the batsman looking to work the ball square on the leg side, a short of length ball heading for middle and off, hit just above the knee roll, Shehzad wonders about the referral, but with Pakistan having already used one up, he walks off, Pakistan are two down 23/2

28.3 54.6 mph, Umar gives it away, he was itching to take on the spinner, got a shortish one and went for the pull, but it was a touch quicker and he was late on the shot, and got it high in the air, it took a while in coming down, and settled neatly in to the hands of deep midwicket who was quite some way in from the boundary 102/7
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* b Oram 17 13 9 2 1 188.88
17.1 80.7 mph, Afridi departs, Oram gets one to angle in from over the stumps on a length, nothing superlative about the ball, just that he played inside the line, and it crashed in to the middle stump, sliding downhill faster than an avalanche are Pakistan 66/6
