    6.3 the openers are back in the hutch.... pitches on a good length on off stump, holds its line, Nafees tries to defend but gets a thick outside edge to Bell at second slip 14/2
    5.1 Mills tests him out with a short one on leg, Junaid goes for the hook, meets the ball on the glove and goes through to McCullum 10/1
    22.5 full, angling into the right hander, Bashar gets a half stride forward but doesn't cover the line of the ball, he's struck low on the pad in front of middle and leg stump. Umpire Llong is convinced 56/6
    7.5 pitched up outside the off stump, swings away from the right hander, Ashraful gets forward to drive and gets a thick outside edge off the toe of the bat to Fleming at first slip 30/3
    15.4 fired in on a good length on off stump, shapes away after pitching, Aftab is caught at the crease, the ball catches the outside edge and goes straight to Fleming at first slip 44/4
    18.6 pitches outside the off stump, Rahim fishes at the ball, and a thick outside edge flies to Bell at third slip 45/5
    not out
    35.5 loss of concentration there.... pitches on a good length outside off and straightens, Shahadat pokes his bat out and then decides to leave it, the ball just shaves the outside edge and McCullum takes the thin edge 79/7
    37.1 the nonexistent third run....sprays full and wide outside off, Islam drives past the covers but doesn't time it well enough to reach the boundary, Vettori runs and relays the throw to Sinclair, the batsmen decide to take a risky third run but Islam is too slow. Sinclair throws it back to O'Brien and as a result of the hesitation for the third run, Islam is well short of his ground 83/8
    46.6 stunning catch and what a way to end the series.... pitches outside off and Mortaza frees his arms on seeing that width, he punches it uppishly on the back foot and Mills at point does brilliantly to fling himself to his right and pull of the catch one-handed 113/10
