  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Mohammad Asif to Watling, OUT, Asif gets the wicket! shortish ball, wide outside off, not really a wicket-taking delivery, Watling smashes it straight to Umar Akmal at backward point, no century stand for New Zealand

BJ Watling c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Asif 18 (119m 69b 1x4 0x6) SR: 26.08

New Zealand 60/1   TG McIntosh 39* (91b 3x4)   Mohammad Asif 8.1-2-17-1

Danish Kaneria to Guptill, OUT, Kaneria strikes, wrong 'un does the job, pitching just outside off, hits him on the knee roll of the front pad, in front of middle and off, no doubt about that one

MJ Guptill lbw b Danish Kaneria 13 (61m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.65

New Zealand 82/2   TG McIntosh 47* (135b 4x4)   Danish Kaneria 6.1-3-19-1

Danish Kaneria to Taylor, OUT, Kaneria gets Taylor, good catch from Yousuf, Taylor slog-sweeps against the turn, that was a very full delivery as well, gets a top edge which swirls towards backward square leg, Yousuf does well to chase and take it with his back to the stumps

LRPL Taylor c Mohammad Yousuf b Danish Kaneria 21 (52m 49b 4x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

New Zealand 118/3   TG McIntosh 62* (159b 7x4)   Danish Kaneria 12.2-6-25-2

Danish Kaneria to McIntosh, OUT, Kaneria has struck again, McIntosh's resistance ends, another sweep attempted, gets an edge which pops up, Kamran Akmal moves to his right and collects that one, end of a career-saving knock?

TG McIntosh c †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 74 (270m 187b 8x4 0x6) SR: 39.57

New Zealand 136/4   DR Flynn 4* (22b)   Danish Kaneria 16.4-7-37-3

Danish Kaneria to Flynn, OUT, review time, the googly has Flynn confounded, did he get beaten or did he get an edge to the keeper, Kamran Akmal is absolutely certain, he called for the review immediately after the umpire turned it down, plenty of replays, there's a sound as it passes the bat, but HotSpot shows nothing, the Taufel overturns the on-field umpire's decision, Flynn has to go, am not sure on what evidence though, sure to add to the growing list of decision-review system controversies, Flynn had started to walk off as soon as the review was called for, perhaps knowing he had edged it, then paused to wait for the umpire's verdict

DR Flynn c †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 5 (51m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.23

New Zealand 145/5   DL Vettori 8* (9b 1x4)   Danish Kaneria 17.5-8-44-4

Umar Gul to McCullum, OUT, Mccullum isn't going to get a century, Gul slips in the bouncer, cramps up McCullum, who can only spoon it to gully, superb innings from McCullum comes to an end, he's massively disappointed

BB McCullum c Faisal Iqbal b Umar Gul 89 (155m 103b 11x4 1x6) SR: 86.40

New Zealand 321/6   DL Vettori 88* (112b 8x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 24.1-5-79-1

Mohammad Asif to Vettori, OUT, Unbelievable catch! Umar Amkal's the man and he's taken a beauty to end a brilliant innings, full outside off, Vettori drives it firmly and uppishly wide of Umar at extra cover, he flings himself to his left and snaps it one-handed

DL Vettori c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Asif 134 (268m 186b 12x4 1x6) SR: 72.04

New Zealand 408/7   DR Tuffey 37* (73b 3x4 1x6)   Mohammad Asif 27.4-8-84-2

Danish Kaneria to Southee, OUT, the googly, gets a big stride forward and doesn't pick it, lands on a good length on the off, turns in and strikes him high on the pads, appeared to be out on first glance, Doctrove gives it out, Southee disagrees and calls for a review, height was a bit of an issue but it would have probably gone on to hit the top of middle and leg, fair call and the decision is upheld

TG Southee lbw b Danish Kaneria 0 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 409/8   DR Tuffey 38* (74b 3x4 1x6)   Danish Kaneria 45.2-10-144-5

Danish Kaneria to O'Brien, OUT, Kaneria picks up wicket no 6. It was a flighted delivery that beat the batsman in flight and then by the turn. I lured O'Brien forward and he ended up dragging his back foot on the line and as he tried to push it back, he lifted it momentarily in the air just as Akmal broke the stumps. Enter Chris 'Phantom' Martin to try help Tuffey get to a hundred. Oh well!

IE O'Brien st †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 19 (60m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.34

New Zealand 471/9   DR Tuffey 80* (123b 8x4 2x6)   Danish Kaneria 52.2-10-168-6

Danish Kaneria to Martin, OUT, Yet another duck for the man they call the Phantom. It was the slider that crept in towards the middle stump. Martin was clueless of course, had his bat way outside the line and tried to get it back in line but too late. Tuffey has been stranded on a fine 80. Duck no 28 for Martin. What a legend.

CS Martin lbw b Danish Kaneria 0 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 471/10   DR Tuffey 80* (123b 8x4 2x6)   Danish Kaneria 53-10-168-7
