    5.6 Afridi does break the stand and unfurls the star man pose. Legbreak slides on outside off, Guptill goes low for the slog sweep. He skies it off a top edge, Umar Akmal runs in from long-on, and catches it at the midwicket region, though he took his eyes off it at the last moment 57/1
    10.6 Williamson holes out to Malik at long-on! Full and outside off, slants away with the angle, KW shuffles across for the lofted hit. The bat twisted in his hands as he skews it off the lower part of the part 94/3
    6.5 Superb, sharp work from Rizwan. Low full toss, which is flicked to short midwicket. Munro drifts out in search of a single. Rizwan's release was lightning quick from a side-on, low position. He nails the stumps down with a rocket over-arm throw. Rizwan had only one stump to aim at. He sets off on a celebratory run, leaps, and takes a high-five from Anwar 62/2

    17.5 Anderson shuffles outside leg and goes over the man at cover. There is a brief hesitation on the third run, is Elliott run-out? He's gone. Accurate throw from the deep. Sarfraz collects it and takes the bails off 174/4
    18.1 full and on middle, Ronchi swings. He does not middle it. Umar runs to his left and takes it at long-on 175/5

    1.1 Boult strikes with his first ball! Half-tracker outside off, might have been a slower ball. Hafeez skies it. Santner sprints back from cover, dives, and takes a fine catch 7/1
    2.1 dug in short on middle, does not rise as much as Shehzad expected. Pulled over backward square leg. Boult goes low and completes the catch even as the ball was dying on him 14/2
    2.3 Brain freeze for Rizwan Horrible, horrible running. The one pitched outside leg, hits the pad, as Rizwan misses the attempted leg-side flick. Rizwan goes far down the wicket, for a non-existent single. Santner collects the ball, charges in with it, and takes the bails off 15/3
    4.5 Another cracker of a catch! Full and slants away outside off, Malik looks to swing it across the line. He miscues it off the bottom outside half. McClenaghan tracks back from mid-on, dives, and pouches it 36/4
    13.4 back of a length on middle, Sarfraz goes low for a sweep. He can only offer a dolly catch to short fine off a top edge. Pakistan are collapsing badly 92/8
    8.4 shorter and outside off, Umar Akmal swings it into the hands of the sub fielder at deep square leg 55/5
    11.3 Elliott sucks pace off this and gets Afridi. 90ks, slower leg-breakish ball, I suspect that came from the back of the hand. Afridi wound up, but drags it to Henry at long-on. Afridi could not manufacture his own pace 75/6
    11.5 Double-strike from Elliott. Short and wide outside off, Wasim perishes for a golden duck. He cuts it in the air off the back foot. Guptill throws himself to his left at backward point and smartly takes it 76/7
    14.3 Anwar backs away, Milne chases him with a short ball at 148ks. He plays with an angled bat, and gets a thin edge behind to Ronchi 98/9
    16.1 NZ take the series with a thumping 95-run win, the biggest win in T20Is for them in terms of runs .Lifting short ball, Wahab steps away outside leg and sends it in the air off a big top edge. Ronchi settles under it 101/10
