1.6

Shoaib Akhtar to Ryder, OUT, gone! Shoaib strikes in his first over, poor shot really, it was a shortish ball going across Ryder, who looked to play it towards midwicket with an angled bat, the edge fairly flew to Younis Khan at widish slip, who doesn't drop many in that region, and he took the chest-high chance cleanly

JD Ryder c Younis Khan b Shoaib Akhtar 6 (9m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

New Zealand 27/1   MJ Guptill 21* (7b 2x4 2x6)   Shoaib Akhtar 1-0-12-1

3.3

Shoaib Akhtar to Brownlie, OUT, he tries to do a Guptill, but Shoaib is too quick for him, and the attempted pull of a shortish pacy delivery, goes to Umar Akmal who takes an excellent diving catch low to his left, moved really quickly there

DG Brownlie c †Umar Akmal b Shoaib Akhtar 5 (7m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 45/2   MJ Guptill 30* (11b 2x4 3x6)   Shoaib Akhtar 1.3-0-19-2

5.1

Shoaib Akhtar to Styris, OUT, the aeroplane takes off at Eden Park, Shoaib has three, 145 kph fullish delivery homing in off stump, Styris backs away and goes for an ill-advised hoick, and hears the death rattle behind him, poor shot really, Shoaib was too quick for him

SB Styris b Shoaib Akhtar 7 (8m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

New Zealand 55/3   MJ Guptill 32* (13b 2x4 3x6)   Shoaib Akhtar 2.1-0-25-3

9.4

Shahid Afridi to Guptill, OUT, and a wicket falls against the run of play, it was tapped into the off side, and Guptill went rushing down the track for the run, Taylor rightly didn't want it as the fielder was already swooping down on the ball, Guptill backpedalled furiously and put in the dive, but replays show he cold not beat the throw, and was just short of the crease, what an end to a fine knock

MJ Guptill run out 54 (45m 29b 4x4 4x6) SR: 186.20

New Zealand 91/4   LRPL Taylor 12* (11b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.4-0-12-0

14.4

Mohammad Hafeez to Franklin, OUT, gone! it was fast and flat, coming in sharply with the arm, Franklin backed away to cut, but even as the bat was coming down, the ball had crashed into the pads first in front of middle and leg, and umpire Billy thought about it for some time before sending Franklin on his way with the crooked finger

JEC Franklin lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 19 (21m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 111.76

New Zealand 115/5   LRPL Taylor 16* (24b 1x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 1.4-0-13-1
