    4.3 bowled'im! Excellent length, targeting the blockhole and it works, on middle and leg, slightly slower, bowled at 127 kmph, Nazir, in his attempt to dig it out, was too early into his shot, missed it and heard the death rattle 40/1
    6.5 it doesn't matter! He's trapped Kamran in front with a full delivery on off and middle, bends low, gets across to paddle it fine, misses, is struck on the pads and the umpire has no hesitation, was plumb 51/2

    12.1 ..or have I jinxed it? Gave it a bit of air, bowled it full on leg, Afridi went for the slog-sweep, the shot was on but couldn't connect it well, struck it straight into the palms of Bond waiting at deep midwicket 96/3
    14.4 he's skied it, bowled it full on the off, came down the track and tried to launch him over long-off, miscued it and Styris running in from deep extra cover held on to an excellent catch 114/4
    15.1 he strikes! Full outside off from round the wicket, Razzaq goes for a booming drive through the covers, ends up getting a thick edge to the keeper, gone first ball 114/5

    18.2 charges down the track, it's slower through the air, he had given it a bit of air to induce him into doing that, skied it and Malik, at long-on, judged it to perfection 132/4
    3.3 brilliantly taken, identical to his catch off Guptill yesterday, a superb delivery, landed on a good length on middle and moved away, tried to defend it on the front foot, the movement produced the outside edge and Kamran, stretched to his right to pluck it one-handed and tumbled to pull off a blinder 20/1
    8.1 Guptill's not one of them, short of a length outside off, nipped back in a touch, tried to chop it down towards third man, got an inside edge onto the stumps 46/2
    10.6 hurled it quick and flat on the off and it's angling in, Taylor bends low and tries to execute his most favoured slog-sweep, misses and is caught plumb in front of middle and off 66/3
    19.6 Malik snaps it at long-on, Styris made room and tried to launch that length delivery over long-on, found Malik at long-off who was waiting for that mistimed attempt and took it comfortably while preventing a collision with the man running in from long-on 146/5
