    2.4 bounce! Edged! Taken! Terrific channel from the tall fast bowler who catches Guptill on the crease with a shortish delivery that darted across him after pitching. The batsman tried to open the face to get better control of his poke. No such luck as Shafiq dives to his right and makes no mistake 20/1
    19.1 up comes the finger and Brownlie has missed out on a start again! Had a chat with his captain and then decides to walk off. It was too plumb to even hope. Plays down the wrong line to a fuller delivery that slides on with the arm. Hit very low on the pads and quite adjacent with the stumps 86/2
    42.1 he's walking! The sweep, and the need to score quickly, has ended a magnificent innings from the New Zealand captain. Tossed up a lot slower than the other Afridi darts which makes the top-edge appear, deflect off the peak of his helmet, I think and then sit in the gloves of the wicketkeeper who was running forward 202/3

    46.2 runs down the track and he's toe-ended it! Afridi lines it up, but it pops out! Juggles it once, then again, and finally pouches it with his left hand behind him. Good composure from the Pakistan captain and Ronchi's breezy little knock ends 241/4

    0.5 given out leg before, but Jamshed is wondering if it was pitched outside leg. Has a loooong conversation with his partner and loses the time that was there to opt for a review. New Zealand have been hustling batsmen out with pace all through the series and this one was just on a good length and skids onto the batsman. Brings out the panicked swipe across the line and is struck in line with off stump. Clearly pitched outside leg, oh dear, umpire Wilson... 0/1
    28.1 Catching practice! Chooses to force a back of a length delivery off the front foot and possibly chip it over mid-on. Ends up gifting that fielder, Kane W, the simplest of catches 107/4
    8.5 strangled down the leg side! It's the short ball that does him again, and he goes after it. He might have imagined a deft little glance to long leg for perhaps a boundary, but ends up gloving to the keeper 22/2
    12.5 this time the finger comes up from umpire Wilson. Shafiq walks up to check with Shehzad and then goes for a review. Another arm ball on middle and off stump and it tempted the batsman to play around the front pad. This looks out, struck in front of off stump and would go on to clip leg stump. Umpire's call will be upheld 38/3
    38.4 too much room on that occasion and he misses his slice! He stands there for ages, slumped over his bat after McClenaghan nails it full on off stump and roars after hitting his target. The third umpire checks on the front foot, that's okay. The back foot too for good measure. All fine. Off walks Sohail 172/6
    30.3 you beauty, Martin Guptill. It was a rank long hop from N Mac and Akmal had jumped back for a blistering pull. Only he fails to keep it down, and forgets about placement. Picks out short midwicket 117/5
    39.1 strikes first ball back in does Henry! He preempted Sarfraz making room for himself and bowled a good length delivery a little further outside off. The batsman has to play at it, there's too many runs left to get, and nicks off. Lovely, low catch from Ronchi as well 174/7
    42.5 good length, back of the hand slower ball has been carted to deep midwicket and Henry has a maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs, and he's only played six matches. The crowd has begun departing, almost the second the catch was taken. 205/9
    41.6 oh, N Mac enjoyed that! The batsman was charging down the pitch again, but this time the fuller delivery was slid through quicker and wider outside off. Anwar cannot reach, and he can't get back to safety either. Top work from Ronchi 194/8
    43.3 timber! New Zealand take the series in emphatic fasion! It was full, it was straight, it had Zulfiqar jumping outside the line and swinging from the hips. He misses, Milne hits and smiles all-round in the New Zealand dressing room 207/10
