    8.1 run-out, Hafeez is gone now, Akmal must take the blame, short outside off, Akmal cuts it wide of deep point, they complete the single and he calls for the second only to send Hafeez back after he's covered a good amount of ground down the pitch, it's a good throw to the keeper McGlashan who takes off the bails to find Hafeez miles short as he tries to get back 69/3
    1.6 gone! Bowled off a full toss, on middle stump, made room and tried to crash it through the off side, missed and timber! Tame dismissal in the end, New Zealand break through 24/1
    7.6 New Zealand have broken through, short ball outside off and Shehzad tried to repeat that punch he had executed earlier in the over, only this time he got a lot more elevation and found Styris at deep extra cover, who ran to his right and judged it well 68/2
    19.2 gone, holes out to long-on, pitched up on middle and it's lofted straight to the fielder in the deep, comfortable catch to McCullum, an off day for Akmal with the bat though he kept really well 141/8
    9.6 More trouble for Pakistan, Younis goes, McCullum slowed it up from round the wicket, landed on a good length and went on straight, Younis opened the face slightly to play it behind point, probably expecting it to turn in a hint, got a thin edge and McGlashan made no mistake. New Zealand are in control now 76/4
    13.1 fires it straight on middle, makes room to smack it over the off-side field and misses, the stumps take a beating and Pakistan sink further 96/5
    15.3 gone! A decisive blow, slowed it up quite a bit there and went on straight, Razzaq waited for it and went for the cut, got a thick edge and McGlashan's having a good day 114/6
    15.4 lovely running catch from Guptill in the deep and McCullum's on a hat-trick, he's fielded well all day has guptill, Gul tries to smote it over deep square leg and connects, gets a little too much elevation on that one but it appears it has enough on it to go all the way, Guptill, though, is at the edge of the ropes and runs a few yards to his right to take it just inside the boundary 114/7
    19.3 another one, Southee's on a hat-trick again, length ball and it's smacked straight into the palms of McCullum at long-on,a repeat of the previous ball 141/9
