Tanvir Ahmed to McIntosh,
Pakistan have struck, McIntosh has flopped, a back of length ball on offstump, McIntosh prods at it, gets the outside edge, flies low to Younis at second slip, he pouches that one, and Pakistan are celebrating
TG McIntosh c Younis Khan b Tanvir Ahmed 5 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33
Umar Gul to McCullum,
that's the end of McCullum, goes for another big hit, short and wide from Gul, McCullum slices that straight to Azhar Ali at deep backward point, the smiles are back on Pakistan faces, McCullum is disgusted with himself, there was a big score for the taking here
BB McCullum c Azhar Ali b Umar Gul 56 (132m 77b 7x4 2x6) SR: 72.72
Abdur Rehman to Taylor,
Rehman's figures look a lot better now, he removes Ross Taylor, slightly short and a bit wide, Taylor rocks back for the cut, gets a thin top edge to the keeper, Adnan pouches that, umpire has little doubt there's an edge, and Taylor's on his way. Misbah will be feeling a lot better about the decision to bowl now.
LRPL Taylor c †Adnan Akmal b Abdur Rehman 6 (28m 27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.22
Wahab Riaz to Guptill,
a stroke of luck for Pakistan, Ryder is run-out, Guptill drilled a length ball from Wahab back at the bowler, who managed to get his left hand on the ball which was on its way to the non-striker's stumps, Ryder was backing up, he had no chance of making his ground, Ryder was looking really good at the crease today, big blow for New Zealand
JD Ryder run out 22 (52m 41b 3x4 1x6) SR: 53.65
Abdur Rehman to Guptill,
oh dear, what a soft, soft dismissal, all that grinding-it-out business and then throws it away to perhaps the worst ball of the day, a high full toss outside off, Guptill could have dispatched that where he liked, he dispatches it only as far as the cover fielder, another freebie for Pakistan
MJ Guptill c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Rehman 50 (227m 164b 8x4 0x6) SR: 30.48
Abdur Rehman to Young,
lbw! The sweep is Reece's downfall. He planted his front foot a long way down to a quicker one from Rehman and missed the sweep, the ball hit his front pad in line of off stump and Harper thought it was going straight through. Reece was a fair way forward though.
RA Young lbw b Abdur Rehman 14 (33m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 42.42
Tanvir Ahmed to Vettori,
lbw! That is as easy as it gets for an umpire. Tanvir Ahmed bowls a yorker that is dead straight. Vettori moves across his crease and tries to work it on the leg side by closing the face of the bat. He misses and gets hit flush on the boot in front of middle stump. Out.
DL Vettori lbw b Tanvir Ahmed 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Umar Gul to Southee,
Gul takes out Soutee first ball! Fabulous bouncer. Really well-directed short stuff, rearing up at the head, and Southee took his eyes off the ball, and put up his bat as a shield. The ball flew of the glove and popped up to second slip. Gone! A wicket in the first over of the day.
TG Southee c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 56 (110m 82b 8x4 0x6) SR: 68.29
Tanvir Ahmed to Williamson,
The bouncer does in Kane! He shuffled across, hopped back, and tried to stab it the on side for a single and retain the strike. But he ended up getting in a tangle and only succeeded in top edging it behind the wicket. Kane falls after a nice knock. Enter Phantom. On 97.
KS Williamson c †Adnan Akmal b Tanvir Ahmed 50 (201m 125b 5x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
Tanvir Ahmed to Arnel,
And Martin will remain on 97. Once again, his team-mates have ditched him. It was the shortish delivery, from round the stumps, Arnel top-edged the pull to mid-on.
BJ Arnel c Wahab Riaz b Tanvir Ahmed 8 (37m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 27.58
