0.1

Mohammad Amir to McIntosh, OUT, oh dear me what a start to the series! The dream yorker which has him all at sea, McIntosh had no clue to this one which swung back in before he could react, the ball hits the toe of the bat and cannons onto the leg stump, Aamer couldn't have asked for a better start

TG McIntosh b Mohammad Amir 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 0/1   MJ Guptill 0* (0b)   Mohammad Amir 0.1-0-0-1

5.5

Mohammad Asif to Flynn, OUT, the inside edge! Asif hits a good length outside off and Flynn leaves a gap between bat and pad as he shapes to defend, the ball kicks up, shaves the inside edge and there was no doubt in anyone's mind there

DR Flynn c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 8 (22m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

New Zealand 27/2   MJ Guptill 19* (20b 4x4)   Mohammad Asif 2.5-0-14-1

48.4

Mohammad Amir to Guptill, OUT, short on the middle and leg. Guptill pulls but only manages to get a top-edge. Alam stationed at square-leg runs a few yards backwards and takes the catch. Aamer has been the stand-out bowler for Pakistan today

MJ Guptill c Fawad Alam b Mohammad Amir 60 (203m 142b 10x4 1x6) SR: 42.25

New Zealand 144/3   LRPL Taylor 65* (136b 9x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 9.4-2-33-2

62.1

Saeed Ajmal to Taylor, OUT, Taylor falls short of his ton! Ajmal tosses it up on the off stump and invites the front foot drive, the ball straightens and Taylor gets a thick outside edge to Farhat at first slip

LRPL Taylor c Imran Farhat b Saeed Ajmal 94 (237m 174b 13x4 1x6) SR: 54.02

New Zealand 192/4   PG Fulton 18* (43b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 17.1-6-33-1

71.4

Mohammad Asif to Fulton, OUT, What can you do to that delivery? Pitching on a good length on the off stump and holding it's line. Fulton is caught napping as he is playing for the away movement. He gets a faint inside-edge onto his pads and gets deflected onto the stumps. Soft dismissal that

PG Fulton b Mohammad Asif 29 (94m 73b 3x4 0x6) SR: 39.72

New Zealand 210/5   GD Elliott 7* (27b)   Mohammad Asif 17.4-3-51-2

73.1

Mohammad Asif to Elliott, OUT, that's a double strike from Asif! He bowls it on the channel outside off, gets it to move in through the air and Elliott fishes outside the off stump and plays a nothing shot, Akmal does well to dive to his right and snap it up, neat reflexes

GD Elliott c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 8 (43m 33b 0x4 0x6) SR: 24.24

New Zealand 211/6   BB McCullum 0* (3b)   Mohammad Asif 18.1-3-51-3

117.2

Umar Gul to McCullum, OUT, what a delivery to halt the partnership and Gul is smiling again! He bowls an excellent inswinging yorker and McCullum gets an inside edge and looks back to see his middle stump flattened

BB McCullum b Umar Gul 78 (204m 154b 12x4 0x6) SR: 50.64

New Zealand 375/7   DL Vettori 84* (115b 12x4)   Umar Gul 29.2-9-100-1

125.5

Umar Gul to Vettori, OUT, On 99! Gul pitches it up outside off and Vettori takes the risk of trying to run it down to third man with little width to work with, there's a thick edge and Kamran Akmal pouches it

DL Vettori c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 99 (237m 133b 14x4 0x6) SR: 74.43

New Zealand 402/8   SE Bond 8* (34b 1x4)   Umar Gul 33.5-10-113-2

130.3

Mohammad Asif to Bond, OUT, straightforward decision, Asif bangs it in short on the body and Bond tries to fend it off to the leg side but the ball brushes his glove and lobs to Akmal down the leg side, Doctrove raises the finger

SE Bond c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 22 (66m 48b 2x4 1x6) SR: 45.83

New Zealand 428/9   IE O'Brien 12* (14b 2x4)   Mohammad Asif 33.3-5-108-4

131.5

Saeed Ajmal to Martin, OUT, the doosra squares him up and that's as plumb as it can get, gets on the back foot, the ball skids through and catches him in front of middle, that's another duck for Martin

CS Martin lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 429/10   IE O'Brien 13* (17b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 37.5-10-91-2
