12.1

Styris to Fawad Alam, OUT, Well, Southee's spell is over, but the wickets keep tumbling. Alam's gone now, trying to manufacture a pull out of nowhere as Styris continues to strangle with those off cutters. Alam went deep in the crease and looked to cross bat it, but it was not the right length. Top edge goes into the sky and lands in long on's hands

Fawad Alam c Franklin b Styris 9 (23m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Pakistan 84/7   Fawad Alam 9 (11b 1x4)
