    14.5 Caught or grounded? is the question. Replays suggest it was a clean catch . Guptill has to go, after he gets confirmation from the third umpire. Guptill pressed back to punch it away from the body and Shehzad dived forward full towards the ball at point to pouch it. Smart catch. 80 for 3 and NZ are wobbling here. The umpires have told the batsman to wait. They go upstairs. Shehzad dived forward, caught the ball cleanly above the ground and the question is when he landed did the ball touch the ground. But the right palm came under the ball at that point and the ball doesn't seem to have touched the ground. Out! 80/3
    7.4 A slower one and short in length as well. Jamie sees the length and goes for the pull but is done in by the lack of pace. He holes out to deep midwicket. Pakistan fielders erupt in joy, Jamie looks back ruefully as he trudges off 44/1
    11.4 Younis takes a neat catch at first slip. It was a probing delivery that landed on a good length outside off and straightened. Rosco got forward to defend and ended up stabbing it to left of Younis who lunges low to pouch it. 67/2
    33.1 Nice catch from Umar Akmal. Is that the game-breaking blow? Styris connected with the slog sweep and the white ball seemed to be soaring over midwicket boundary. Umar stationed himself just inside the boundary, hopped back to reach above him and plucked it. He then looks back to see whether his feet are safe inside the line. They are. Out! 161/4
    36.2 Castled! It was the slower one, on the middle, from a back of length, Kane had to wait on that front foot, he then tried to swat it across the line but edged it back on to his stumps 179/5
    37.2 Brendon is run out It was pushed to right of backward point and they went for the risky single. Direct hit has Brendon out by a meter.. Umar Akmal is thrilled as he dashes off towards his team-mates. Brendon is pretty angry and upset as he storms off 182/6
    42.5 It was full and on the legs, Oram goes for the swat-flick and it balloons down to deep backward square-leg where Hafeez ran in and lunged forward to take it. The catching has been good today. Pakistan inch close 210/7
    43.4 Yorked! Thanks for coming. A Gul special. Woodcock tried to bring bat down in a hurry to get some wood on leather but couldn't do it in time. Clatter! The middle stump tilts back 217/8
    46.6 Nine down. It was slower and flighted up, Mills ended up miscuing it high in the air and long-off moves into the 30-yard circle to take it. Pakistan on the verge 232/9
