    10.6 run out again, Butt has to go. Pushed off the front foot towards extra cover, Younis takes off but there's plenty of hesitation from Butt who is late in his response, Guptill flicks an under-arm throw to the keeper who takes off the bails to find him miles short 51/2
    8.2 it looked out, Vettori's struck immediately! Drifted in, landed on a good length on the off and angled in, he didn't get too forward while trying to play at it, missed and was caught right in front of middle 47/1
    11.1 Younis goes! New Zealand have fought back, short of a good length on the off, just a hint of away movement, Younis moves back to defend, gets a thick outside edge and Taylor at a widish slip takes a good low catch diving to his left 51/3
    16.6 Malik has been sent back! Tempted into playing the pull, it's a short one again, doesn't connect it well, miscues it straight into the hands of Styris waiting at deep square leg 74/4
    19.5 gone! Short and wide, goes for the cut, gets a thick edge and McCullum holds on to a straightforward chance 82/5
    20.4 gone, another one! Afridi's thrown it away, bowled on a good length outside off and he tries to whack it past the bowler, a hint of away movement produces a thick outside edge and McCullum snaps a dolly 84/6
    21.2 An atrocious shot! Pakistan are being abysmal here, short on the off and he tries to swat that needlessly over mid-on, doesn't time it at all and finds Vettori,who accepts it gleefully 86/7
    23.1 run out, Razzaq goes, what a mess! Full on middle, driven to mid-on where Vettori slides to his left and pulls off an excellent stop, Razzaq has already left the non-striker's end for a single but is met with no response from Gul who belatedly sends him back, Vettori returns an over-arm throw to the bowler's end, Southee collects and flicks the bails to find Razzaq miles out of his ground 86/8
    33.1 Gul departs, bowled it full on middle and leg, clipped it well but straight into the palms of Redmond at deep midwicket 101/9
    not out
    49.1 New Zealand have won! Short on middle, goes for the pull, gets a top edge and Mills running in from fine leg takes a well-judged catch amid all the nerves and pressure 204/10
