    46.2 Baz's super innings comes to an end. He cleared the front leg and went for the good-old slog to the on side but dragged it off the inner edge from well outside off to his stumps. 274/7
    4.1 Full in length, moving across Redmond who tries to lift it over the off-side field but mistimes it straight to mid-off. The bat-face wobbled at the point of impact and he couldn't time or provide any power to that shot. 21/1
    23.6 Guptill throws his wicket away. He walked down the track, looking for the big hit, Razzaq shortened the length and Guptill flat-batted his heave towards sweeper cover.. fine innings, though from Guptill 147/2
    24.2 Afridi the rock star strikes. The slider does the trick. It was outside off stump, skidded on straight almost, Taylor pushed outside the line and stabbed it on to the stumps 147/3
    27.4 Styris is run out Direct hit from Younis Khan. It was pushed past the diving short extra cover and McCullum calls Styris for a single. It was easy for McCullum as he was already down the track when he played that shot. Styris had to wait to see the short cover didn't stop it before he responded to the call. Too late. Younis, at mid-off, swoops on the ball and fires down the stumps. Gone! 160/4
    37.4 slightly short in length around the off stump, Vettori went for the pull but top-edged it up in the air and Kamran Akmal gets under it 214/5
    38.3 Dead plumb. Done in by the googly. It landed on a length around off stump and broke back in to move past the nervous waft and hit him in front of middle. 218/6

    30.3 Butt is run out. It was pushed to the left of midwicket and there is confusion between the two. Guptil makes a superb diving stop and quickly flicks the ball to Vettori with Butt nowhere in picture. Yousuf called Butt for the single before he changed his mind. Too late. 134/5
    16.2 dead plumb. It was the arm ball on the middle stump line. Latif went back and failed to put bat to ball. It would have crashed into leg and middle 77/1
    27.2 What a stunner from Ross Taylor! It was a fullish delivery on the leg and middle, Younis flicked it away to the right of short midwicket where Taylor moves to his right before diving with the outstretched right hand and plucks the catch. 124/2
    27.3 That man Taylor again. It was the back of length delivery, clipped away in the air over short midwicket and Taylor jumps up to grab it. Scott Styris and Rossy didn't do much with the bat but they are combining here superbly for NZ 125/3
    29.5 Scott Styris is having a night of his life. It was a length delivery outside off and Akmal punches straight to short cover. Advantage New Zealand. 133/4
    34.3 Super arm-ball does the trick. Trapped in front. It curved in from outside off, to hit the front pad first before it hit the bat. "Pad first and that's out, " says Geoff Boycott on air. 158/6
    40.2 The fielding has been terrific. Southee, now, takes a very sharp catch. It was drilled low to his left at extra cover where he lunges to take a smart catch 194/7
    46.1 Moves outside the leg stump, gives himself some room and goes for the big lofted shot down the ground but holes out to long-off 231/9
    42.6 The short-stuff has worked today. Gul steers the bouncing delivery outside off to backward point. 209/8
    47.2 All over. Full and outside off stump, square driven to deep point . New Zealand players shake hands with each other and with the Pakistani players. The series stands 1 -1. Exciting finale awaits us. 239/10
