Styris to Umar Akmal, OUT, the slower one does the trick, Umar was going for everything out there and tried to slog-sweep that good-length delivery over midwicket, was deceived by the pace and got the top edge, Watling, running back, took a well-judged overhead catch. His debut catch, that

Redmond to Shahid Afridi, OUT, brilliantly taken by Southee, Afridi's staying his ground. Tossed up outside off, he took it from a good length, coming down the track, and struck it hard and flat towards long-off where Southee, taking a couple of steps coming in, snaps it inches from the ground, an excellent low catch and replays confirm it was clean
