    7.4 And there we go. The first wicket has fallen. It was slightly short in length straightening outside off, McCullum tried to fetch it from there with a pull shot but dragged the ball on to the stumps. 30/1
    29.3 Finally, Ajmal gets an lbw verdict in his favour. It was quicker, on the off stump line, skidding on straight, and Redmond missed the sweep and was hit on the off stump line. It would have crashed into the stumps. 119/5
    9.2 Another fatal inside edge. It was a short of length delivery that skids on straight, Guptill was looking to defend but is late in getting the bat down, pushes it outside the line and it collides with the inside and ... timber! 34/2
    10.2 the thickest of edges and he's gone! He fires it in outside off and angles it across the right-hander, Taylor chases it and shapes to carve it over extra cover but he gets a thick edge which thuds into Kamran's gloves 35/3
    15.1 Styris fan club would be disappointed. It was short in length and Styris pulled it high towards deep square-leg where Farhat (substitute) rushes to his left to pluck off a good catch 50/4
    34.5 Afridi has broken through. It skidded away from Vettori who tried to sweep it but edges it back to the stumps 139/6
    35.3 Yet another fatal inside edge from a New Zealand batsman. It was angling away from Oram who tries to force it on the up through covers but gets the big fat edge 139/8
    34.6 Afridi .. whaddaplayaaa .. he did it with the bat and now doing the job with the ball. The slider this time, on the middle, looks to defend and is hit on the pad. The Hawk eye shows it missing leg and it might well be but when it struck him on the pad, it looked pretty ugly. you can understand why the ump gave that out 139/7
    37.2 Butler is run out. Direct hit from Umar Gul. Good bye sir. It was pushed to left of mid-on where Gul swooped in on the ball and fires in a lovely throw. It has been referee upstairs and the verdict is out 144/9
    not out
    39.2 All over. . It was the quicker one, skidding on rapidly towards the middle, moves past the attempted waft and nails him in front. . Pakistan won by 138 runs. Fine comprehensive win. 149/10
