    4.6 143 kph, McCullum pulls off a stunner! One for the album for sure, Bond bowls it full on the of stump and gets it to move away, Manzoor prods forward and the outside edge travels low to McCullum's right, he dives and takes it one-handed just inches from the turf, McIntosh teaches Farhat a lesson in slip catching 4/1
    5.6 edged and taken at second slip! Angles it towards the off stump from round the wicket, the ball holds its line as Farhat prods forward to steer it away to the off side, the outside edge travels low to second slip but McIntosh does well to get his hands right behind it on the dive forward 6/2
    10.1 full marks to Vettori for his captaincy here, he places a silly mid-on and gets the fielder into play immediately, Bond fires it on a good length on middle and leg, Fawad plays close to the body and gets a leading edge, softly spoons it towards Fulton at silly mid-on, very easy catch 24/3
    36.2 Martin pulls out a rip snorter from practically nowhere! Even the well-set Yousuf didn't see that coming, it just reared up alarmingly and brushed his glove before he could get it out of the way, just what New Zealand needed 95/4
    63.5 spooned it back to the bowler! Umar Akmal trudges off and do we have a twist here? Bond fires it full on middle and Umar drives a little too early and ends up chipping it back towards Bond, he cups it to the right of his face 195/6
    54.2 oh! they haven't yet! Bowls one short on the off stump and gets it to move back in. Malik is surprised by the bounce and feebly top-edges it to McCullum. Well they are coming back into it 161/5
    64.4 appeal for a lbw and Taufel raises the finger and Kamran asks for the review, the ball lands just a shade outside the off stump line on a length and drifts inwards, hits him just on the knee roll in front of leg stump, he shuffled a long way across after he was struck and that exposed all three stumps, after a bit of thought Koertzen upholds it 197/7
    75.6 a return catch seals it! Vettori fires it full on the stumps and Aamer reaches forward to drive but ends up chipping it to Vettori who cups it in front of his forehead 218/10
    66.6 O'Brien's the Man of the Moment! He pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Gul can't resist going for it but he ends up spooning it straight to Vettori at mid-off 203/8
    73.3 edged to first slip! Vettori bowls the quicker one and angles it on the off stump, he had to play at it and the edge is snapped up comfortably by Taylor 213/9
