    1.3 and another huge blow for New Zealand, Jesse Ryder is gone, Shehzad takes another one, a far tougher chance than the one to dismiss Guptill, ran forward from cover point after Ryder's attempted scythe took the edge and ballooned to the off side, had to dive forward to collect it 2/2
    0.4 after doing the business with the bat, Razzaq delivers with the ball now, he has Guptill tentatively poking at a delivery around off, takes the outside edge and Ahmed Shehzad pouches an easy catch at backward point 1/1
    1.6 this is sensational from Pakistan, Afridi gets the direct hit from mid-off to remove Brownlie, who was attempting to get the first run off the bat in New Zealand's innings, third umpire was called for, not sure why since Afridi's pinpoint throw caught Brownlie at least a yard out 2/3
    2.5 the bad old New Zealand is back, Taylor is the man who is gone, Razzaq gets the breakthrough with a ball short of length that strikes Taylor just above the knee roll in front of off, massive appeal and the umpire lifts the finger, New Zealand struggling to keep their number of runs ahead of the number of wickets 3/4
    4.4 one more goes down, Franklin has his stumps re-arranged as he looks to send the ball into orbit beyond midwicket, he misses Razzaq hits, 67 is the lowest score in Twenty20s, New Zealand on course for a new record 11/5
    13.4 bowled'im! Made room to smack that into the stands, left his stumps exposed, was aiming towards wide long-on, missed and timber! 73/8
    8.4 and that's another one, McGlashan pulled off some breath-taking reverse-sweeps two days ago in New Zealand's victory, today , like for his team, nothing is going right, the first time he tries the reverse he misses and the ball crashes into middle and off 36/6
    11.6 gets his man this time! he was walking across and outside his stumps to work it away square, missed and was hit in front of the stumps, that looked out and he is sent on his way 58/7
    15.5 the googly cleans up him after a bunch of flighted legspinners, batsman looks to sends this up, up and away and has stumps re-arranged, clinical from Pakistan, 103-run win for Pakistan, that's the biggest margin of victory in a T20 between two Test sides 80/10
    13.5 ripper, that was a quick one, fired in at 134 kmph and Southee simply wasn't expecting it, went through his defences as he tried to block it off the back foot, missed and we know the rest, that was 134kmh from Afridi 73/9
