    12.6 another one goes and Pakistan lose their set batsman. Full outside off and he went hard at it, got a thick edge straight to Taylor at first slip. His dismissal also signals the arrival of drinks 42/3
    1.1 and he strikes with his first ball! It was an excellent ball which pitched around middle and straightened past the defensive stroke to hit him on the back pad, Harper raises the finger and that was definitely out, Taufeeq departs for a golden duck and the home side are on top early 4/1
    10.1 Pakistan lose their second. It was full on off and tailing into middle and leg, hits him on the pad as he misses the flick and Tucker deliberates before raising the finger, height and whether it was hitting are the key variables to consider there 35/2
    57.4 oh my and Younis is again out in the last over before tea for the second time in the match! It was full outside off and he just poked at it away from the body through to Young behind the stumps, Younis has given New Zealand a glimmer of hope 160/4

    83.2 is there a very very late twist in the tale? A slider on middle and off and thuds into the pad at the same time as bat hits pad, Harper raises the finger and Shafiq has to go. This has certainly livened the game up 215/5
