O'Brien to Salman Butt, OUT, watch out for the blog later today, banged in short on the off and a rush of blood costs Butt his wicket, rises up to him a little more than he expected and he gets a top edge as he attempts a pull, Tuffey moves a few steps forward from mid-on and takes a dolly

Salman Butt c Tuffey b O'Brien 29 (133m 103b 4x4 0x6) SR: 28.15

Pakistan 60/1   Imran Farhat 30* (91b 3x4)   IE O'Brien 8.2-2-23-1

Vettori to Imran Farhat, OUT, The openers have been sent back, New Zealand have clawed back before tea! Short of a length outside off and appeared to hold its line, quicker through the air and Farhat, trying to be a little cheeky, made a bit of room to play it past slip but ended up getting a thick outside edge straight to Taylor who reacted well to snap a sharp one

Imran Farhat c Taylor b Vettori 32 (145m 98b 3x4 0x6) SR: 32.65

Pakistan 66/2   Umar Akmal 4* (10b 1x4)   DL Vettori 8.1-2-22-1

Vettori to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, three down! Yousuf doesn't opt for the review, that's because he knows he's a gonner, angling in towards middle and leg and it holds its line, Yousuf is only half-forward as he tries to play at it, misreads the line and is rapped right in front of the stumps

Mohammad Yousuf lbw b Vettori 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 66/3   Umar Akmal 4* (10b 1x4)   DL Vettori 8.3-2-22-2

Tuffey to Umar Akmal, OUT, Tuffey gets Umar! The inswinger and gets it to nip in a little further after pitching, Umar gets forward to defend but is done in by the movement, clips the pads and is bowled through the gate and is bowled

Umar Akmal b Tuffey 46 (57m 48b 6x4 1x6) SR: 95.83

Pakistan 119/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 11* (20b 1x6)   DR Tuffey 12.1-5-22-1

Tuffey to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Tuffey strikes again, needless stuff from Malik, it's pitched up alright but he didn't have to play it uppishly, mistimes a drive straight to Vettori at mid-off

Shoaib Malik c Vettori b Tuffey 9 (22m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Pakistan 131/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 14* (32b 1x6)   DR Tuffey 14.5-5-25-2

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, goes for a slog-sweep and is rapped on the pads, it went on straight, landed on middle, he bent low to try to whack it over square leg, he had bent so low that it struck him on the back pad in front of middle and leg, plumb, he's called for a review and once we see the replay, we'll know he's wasted an appeal, Taufel gave it out and the referral will just confirm his decision

Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Vettori 21 (93m 51b 0x4 1x6) SR: 41.17

Pakistan 156/6   Kamran Akmal 18* (14b 3x4)   DL Vettori 12.2-3-40-3

O'Brien to Mohammad Amir, OUT, edged and gone, O'Brien does the trick and Taylor has a million-dollar smile on his face as he snaps this one, inducing him to play the drive, producing the edge as it's going away from him and straight into the hands of Taylor who clasps it tight close to his chest

Mohammad Amir c Taylor b O'Brien 21 (56m 57b 3x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

Pakistan 193/7   Kamran Akmal 34* (39b 4x4)   IE O'Brien 18-4-56-2

Tuffey to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Maybe he won't have to, Vettori has taken a beauty running back from mid-off, it was bowled on a good length and Akmal tried to strike it through the line, though he wasn't to the pitch, over mid-off, managed to do so but didn't get the distance, Vettori kept his eyes on it throughout while he was running back and clasped it diving to his left, brilliantly taken, ends a significant contribution

Kamran Akmal c Vettori b Tuffey 70 (153m 85b 8x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

Pakistan 257/8   Umar Gul 28* (53b 3x4 1x6)   DR Tuffey 22.3-5-60-3

Vettori to Mohammad Asif, OUT, Vettori's the man, tossed it up on the off and Asif was drawn into playing the drive, ended up chipping it straight back to Vettori who dived to his left to complete well-taken catch

Mohammad Asif c & b Vettori 4 (10m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Pakistan 264/9   Umar Gul 31* (56b 3x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 21.3-5-58-4

Tuffey to Umar Gul, OUT, Gul connects the pull but ends up playing it into the palms of Iain O'Brien at deep square leg who runs a few steps to his left and judges it well, just inside the ropes

Umar Gul c O'Brien b Tuffey 31 (84m 58b 3x4 1x6) SR: 53.44
