    34.2 Whoa! Big hit but he is gone. A zero sum game. He swivels and plays a fine pull.. but plays it straight to the man at deep midwicket. The fielder doesn't have to move an inch. 163/5
    0.6 first full delivery fetches the wicket! What a blow. He was keeping the batsmen back and slips in the fuller one to surprise Shehzad. The batsman was a touch slow to come forward and gives a simple chance to the keeper 1/1
    1.6 that no-ball hasn't hurt much! There is no celebration from Mitch this time.. They are checking for a no-ball. Younis was stuck in the crease and pokes at an angled delivery, only manages to edge it to Taylor at first slip. This one's fine. Absolutely fine. 11/2
    4.3 full, fast and furious! The stumps have been splayed. This is exhilarating stuff from New Zealand. Henry pushes this further up and keeps it on the middle stump line.. Shafiq wanted to flick it but that was a bit too quick, flies through the gate and whacks the stumps 20/3
    20.1 what a waste that is! Sohail has pulled this short delivery straight into the hands of short midwicket! Taylor was looking into the sun but reacted quickly enough to hold on to that. A little better connection and it would have been safe. Anderson is all smiles.. he knows it's a wicket for him that's come from nowhere 97/4
    36.5 they appeal for a caught behind and Illingworth immediately lifts the finger.. the bowler had actually given up on the appeal -- he had his hands on his head. It was only Ronchi appealing. But the bowler is pleasantly surprised. It was a bouncer again and Misbah went for a hook, but missed. This one goes over his left shoulder and looked good in the real time. Misbah reviews it immediately. The replays look like they would support Illingworth and that is what the decision is. Misbah has to go, despite him gesturing that it was off his fore-arm. He is not happy. But Henry has four now 172/6
    48.1 he is gone! Sarfraz has had to wait throughout this innings to open his arms. Last two overs, he thought this was the time. He looks to swing the length delivery down the ground but gets a big top edge that swirls in the air and settles down at cover. No boundaries today for him 248/9
    40.3 ooh Lala.. Afridi doesn't know when to apply brakes! Keeps going for the big swing but there is no room on this one and all he can do is top-edge the pull. Vettori at mid-off gobbles up the skier 209/7
    44.6 Milne takes his second with a quick short of length delivery.. Riaz rose up with it but could only manage and edge straight to first slip. Fourth career wicket for Milne 231/8
    48.3 he misses the full toss and he has to go. Illingworth raises his finger. It hit him on the thigh pad but that was a good call from the umpire. It was hitting the middle. Tanvir wants to review it, but there are none left 252/10

    18.2 and double B does the double S! Boom Boom's special delivery, which doesn't do anything.. just keeps coming in and Backfoot Brownlie just got cramped for room. It hits the top of middle. The Shahid Slider did the job there 103/1
    24.4 what a waste! Dev is hugely disappointed... He played a nice reverse paddle straight to short third man.. Williamson wanted the run and he was charging down the pitch. Anton Dev started late and his only hope was the fielder going for the wrong end. It didn't happen and Sohail whips off the bails 129/2

    26.3 Sohail strikes, his maiden wicket in ODIs! What a big one this is! It was not short enough but Taylor went for the cut nonetheless, he underedges it to the keeper. Taylor was looking like he was about to walk, but he waited an extra second.. the umpire took his time and finally sent him on his way 138/3
    28.5 another one for Sohail! This is the mirror image of what Williamson did two balls ago - steps out of the crease and looks to chip through wide long-on, but unfortunately for Latham, the fielder - Tanvir - was in the right place. 148/4
    32.3 this has to be a bonus wicket! Tossed up delivery outside off, Anderson goes for the big sweep, but this is too full for it and he drags it from outside off to his stumps. Number three for Sohail 167/5
    42.4 oh what a stunner! Sohail Tanvir takes a blinder at long off to buoy Pakistan. Ronchi went for a big hit on this flighted delivery, but this one turned and messed up with the batsman's timing.. he ended up chipping it towards long-off. Tanvir had to run forward and dive full length - always difficult - to grab this smartly. What a strike this is! 225/6
