    2.2 swings at a short and wide ball, fails to get on top of the bounce which is more than he would've liked. Gets an outside edge for his troubles and settles straight into the gloves of the keeper 8/1
    3.1 and it works! First international wicket for the left-arm spinner. Farhan picks him up with the angle and goes for a big slog, and of all the vast spaces on the leg-side field, picks out deep square leg, hitting it straight into his hands 10/2
    14.2 magnificent from Glen Phillips, a wicketkeeper. Not easy running in from deep midwicket. This is a mistimed heave, no timing from Asif. This was dying on Phillips as he ran in, but he dived full length forward and plucked this close to the ground with his hands completely underneath the ball. Pakistan have been set back again, but I'm not too sure of the choice of shot there from Asif Ali. 93/4
    11.4 short, and cut away. Tim Southee dives to his left, and pulls off a stunner. The umpires are conferring on this, and might refer to the TV umpire, but that was a super effort. Big wicket this, as Hafeez goes 77/3
    17.4 straight up in the air. So high that Corey Anderson, running to his right from long-off, almost to where long-on is, covers enough ground and then puts in a dive to pull off a magnificent catch. Eyes were on the ball all the way, balance was superb, control even better as he ensured the ball didn't bobble out. Sarfraz was deceived in flight as he stepped out to slog, Sodhi saw him advance and bowled it just a touch wider, Sarfraz ended up dragging it a little and that resulted in complete lack of timing. Big wicket. 121/5
    17.6 squeezed down to the man coming in from long-on, but hang on, Malik's turned blind, only to be sent back and Corey Anderson, who can do no wrong. Hared in, picked the ball and fired a rocket throw direct at the striker's end. Comfortably beat Malik's dive by quite a long way. Stunning from Corey, did someone say he's returning from injury? 123/6

    11.3 what have you done, Colin? Tossed up, he couldn't believe it and went after it. Didn't get it off the middle as the bat face turned and he ended up chipping it straight to long-on. 79/2
    5.6 tries to force another one through the off side but miscues it due to the lack of pace. Back of a length and back of the hand, throws out a flat bat and chops onto the stumps after making room. Hasan pumps his fists down and spreads the arms out wide for his trademark celebration 50/1
    12.4 chipped back to Imad. Williamson looked to nudge this into the leg side, but this ball dipped and spun to take the leading edge. Imad was slightly distracted by the non-striker but he got out of the way to make this an easy catch. Imad is pumped, this could be a big moment in the match. Is that the moment for Pakistan? 84/3
    13.4 a direct hit from point and CDG is gone. Shadab Khan, you beauty! One stump to aim at and boom! There was never a run, this was the pressure of a string of dots speaking. Taylor looked to dab it for a quick single but the run was never on. Super pick up, super release and Shadab hit bulls eye. Pakistan nearly have this in the bag. 89/4

    18.1 how far has he hit this? Not quite far, Malik takes an excellent catch running backwards at long-on. The ropes were just behind him and he was mindful of that. Held his balance very nicely to complete the catch. Anderson was deep inside the crease to manufacture the length, couldn't quite get underneath and hit this straight to the fielder. 123/5
    18.6 swings, misses and hears the stumps rattle. Hasan bowls full, straight, gets this to veer in late and beat the swing to hit the middle of middle. Hint of reverse? Whatever, he's done the trick. 132/6
