Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, back of a length, not much turn and Misbah forces towards mid on for a single

20.2

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, and the armer that slides on menacingly. Afridi is late on the cut, and only just manages to get bat on it

20.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, fuller this time, Afridi comes forward and defends resolutely

20.4

Pakistan 60/5   DL Vettori 1-0-3-0

22.1

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, tossed up on off, Afridi looks to drive, but mistimes straight back at the bowler

22.2

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, very full on the stumps and Afridi manages to squeeze it out on the leg side for one

22.3

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, tossed up on middle and leg, Misbah comes reluctantly forward and defends

22.4

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, full again, slightly quicker through the air and it is defended to the leg side off the front foot

22.5

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, Misbah reaches out to a flighted ball on off and drives it with the spin through mid off

22.6

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Afridi is let off! You almost sensed he was eager to get to the striker's end and have a go at Vettori. He succumbed to the temptation the moment he got the chance, prancing down the track and looking to launch him straight out of New Zealand. He did not get to the pitch, and mishits a dolly at Oram running to his right from long on. And he fluffs it!

Pakistan 69/5   DL Vettori 2-0-6-0

24.1

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Afridi goes back to a flat delivery from Vettori and cuts. He wants two, he is eager for strike. But can only get one

24.2

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, Misbah skips out, and ends up getting too close to the ball. Squeezed off the bottom edge towards midwicket

24.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, full on off, Afridi unfurls a powerful drive straight to cover

24.4

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, the skidder, hurries into Afridi who stays back and manages to play to the off side

24.5

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, flighted on leg at 91 kph, Vettori is varying his pace nicely here. Misbah tries to get inside the line and work it to the leg side, but finds short fine leg

24.6

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, turns away from off at 94 kph and Misbah defends with the spin to the off side.

Pakistan 76/5   DL Vettori 3-0-10-0

26.1

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Huge appeal for caught behind turned down. That one was sliding down the leg side and Misbah was looking for the tickle. Once again, incredibly, a noise when the ball was passing the bat but there did not seem to be an edge.

26.2

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, Misbah guides him with the spin off the back foot towards point for one

26.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, The McCullums come together to nearly end Misbah's stay. Afridi drops it softly towards Nathan at cover for one, Misbah prances across and Nathan fires in the under-arm throw on the move. He misses the stumps by a whisker, giving Misbah just enough time to make his gorund.

26.4

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, tossed up outside off, Misbah opens the face and picks a single through the off side

26.5

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run

26.6

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, short ball turning away from Afridi who backs away and whacks it through the covers. Fielded in the deep, but they get two

Pakistan 87/5   DL Vettori 4-0-15-0

28.1

Vettori to Abdul Razzaq, no run, straightens from off stump line, Razzaq stays in the crease and defends to the off side

28.2

Vettori to Abdul Razzaq, no run, tight line on middle and off, straightening prodigiously on landing. Razzaq just manages to keep it out

28.3

Vettori to Abdul Razzaq, no run, Vettori nearly does his throat with a desperate appeal. Another one straightens from middle and off, but probably wasn't doing enough to his the furniture as it rapped Razzaq's pads. Replays say it was too high too.

28.4

Vettori to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, works this one from middle and leg towards mid on for one

28.5

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Misbah defends a quickish delivery just outside off.
