    14.4 bowled'im! Persistently trying to get him to drive at one and Guptill does so this time, not much foot movement as he tried to drive it through the line to that full delivery on the off stump, got an inside edge and it crashed into the stumps 36/2
    1.5 gone this time! It nipped back in from a short of a good length outside off, came half-forward and was done in by the inward movement, missed the bat, struck on the pads albeit a little high and Taufel had no hesitation in giving that one, height may have been a problem there, but McIntosh didn't call for a review, his struggles continue 4/1
    16.3 gone! Flynn's gone, Asif gets another one, short of a good length outside off and gets it to nip away at just the right time to produce a thick outside edge straight to Kamran 37/3
    60.2 edged and gone! Couldn't resist going for the drive to one that was pitched on a length outside off, got a thick edge and Misbah clasped it comfortably at first slip 186/6
    35.2 edged and gone! Landed on a good length outside off, he couldn't resist, tried to drive one on the up when the length wasn't quite right, got a thin edge straight to Kamran 80/4
    41.2 He swept it back onto his stumps! Tossed up on leg stump and he bent low to sweep it fine, no indications of any turn there but he ended up getting some bat on it but not in the direction he intended, gets it straight onto the stumps and New Zealand slide further 108/5
    67.5 a beauty! Turned away sharply with some extra bounce from a good length on the off stump, McCullum was caught by surprise while trying to open the face, got an edge and Kamran reacted well to snap a sharp one, Pakistan inch closer 206/7
    80.1 gone, sanity restored! Gets it to land just short of a good length outside off and move away a hint, Vettori pokes at it from the crease, gets a thick edge and Umar Akmal snaps a sharp one reacting to his right 252/9
    69.5 the googly and Tuffey fails to pick it, lands on a good length outside off and darts back in to strike him on the pads as he gets forward to defend, plays down the wrong line there, struck him in line, Taufel gives it out, Tuffey has doubts and calls for a review, it struck him on the back pad and beat him through the gate, would have hit middle and leg, Tuffey may have thought that would have gone over but replays indicate that may not be the case, Taufel's decision is upheld and Tuffey has to go 212/8
    82.5 Malik finally takes one! Asif takes five, short outside off, hangs his bat out and opens the face but ends up edging it straight to Malik at second slip 263/10
