    14.5 short again, angling into the body this time, and Hafeez hits picks out the square leg fielder with his pull. Seemed like a slightly slower delivery than the previous ones. Superb effort from Astle, diving to his right to take it over his shoulder 110/4
    4.4 length ball, a bit wider outside off now, and Shehzad attempts the same shot he pulled off the previous ball, ends up picking out Elliott coming in off the rope at long-on. The line made him hit it straighter than he would have liked 33/1
    6.1 strikes first ball! Maqsood gave away his intentions too early, jumped down the pitch and Santner fired it in quicker and a touch shorter, beyond the batsman's reach. He swings across the line, and it turns away sharply, takes his outside edge, and the keeper completes a good catch and pulls off a stumping as well 52/2
    10.4 down the track and he doesn't reach the pitch this time, spins away and Malik, who wants to hit this over mid-on or over the bowler, ends up slicing it a bit and it drops down gently into long-off's hands 78/3
    16.5 full outside off, too full to properly get under it, and Akmal goes hard at it, skews it in the air as his bat turns in his hand. and picks out the fielder at deep cover 146/5
    17.1 full on off stump and Afridi can't get elevation. Opens up a bit to try and lift it over the cover fielder, but he ends up hitting it straight to him instead 147/6
    19.2 good short ball on middle stump, and Imad, moving away from his leg stump, is not in a stable position while trying to pull, and ends up slicing it to the cover fielder 168/8
    18.6 full on leg stump, follows Sarfraz looking to make himself room. It was the back-of-the-hand slower ball, and Sarfraz skews his attempted big hit down the ground, doesn't time it well at all, and Williamson runs to his right from mid-off and takes a good tumbling catch 167/7

    1.5 back of a length, no turn, and he punches straight to the man at cover. Williamson calls for the single, Guptill responds a little late, and then he's sent back. Too late, and the throw at the bowler's end leaves plenty of time to complete the run-out with both batsmen near the middle of the pitch. Williamson even made a late, desperate attempt to run past Guptill and sacrifice his wicket, but he couldn't manage it 9/1
    19.1 gone! Williamson's long fight ends. Full on leg stump, looks to flick it over the backward square leg region, is a little too early into the shot, and he picks out the fielder at deep square leg 152/9
    9.6 bowled him! That was very full outside off, almost a yorker, and he jabbed at it with an angled bat looking to squeeze it through point, and all he could do was inside-edge it into his stumps 89/2
    10.3 and he's gone! length ball, stops on the batsman, and he checks the drive and pops it straight back to Imad 90/3
    13.1 gone! Down the track, looking to make room, and Afridi bowled a wide googly. Reached out for the flat-bat drive and ended up dragging it into his stumps off the inside edge 107/4
    13.5 a bit slower this time and he's picked up another! Ronchi comes forward to drive, it grips and turns away from him, and he has to reach out for it, ends up popping a simple catch to the man at cover 107/5
    14.4 full, a bit of width outside off, and Afridi pulls off an absolute stunner! Santner looks to lift it inside-out, doesn't get the desired elevation, and Afridi takes a couple of steps back from cover, leaped up and backwards, and took a sensational overhead catch while turning around and landing on his elbow 108/6
    17.4 yorker, and leg stump is dislodged. That was pinpoint, sneaks under Astle's bat as he jams down desperately to try and clip into the leg side 138/7
    18.6 low full-toss outside off and Afridi takes a simple catch! Flat-batted straight to cover 152/8

    19.6 sees him backing away to make room, follows with the length ball at the body. Looks to hit inside-out, the ball hits high on his bat and he scoops a simple catch to cover, where Afridi settles under the ball 155/10
