    14.4 he's cleaned him up! Worker steps out to whip this, but the ball drifted in a long way, dipped on him and beat his swing to crash into middle. Played all around it, got into a tangle and has to go. Worker's struggle is over and they'll grab a drink. 71/3
    1.6 Hafeez pedals backwards and holds on at mid-off! That's a poor shot from Munro. Could have done all the things he did last ball to get the result he was looking for here, but he has looked to go across the line at a length ball. It's at off stump, he's looking to go wide of mid-on. Gets it off the toe-end again and Hafeez does very nicely to track this to his right as he jogs backwards and lunges to hold on 14/1
    3.3 they've got Williamson! New Zealand's captain taking a stroll down the pitch at the non-striker's end, hasn't even had the chance to react as Shaheen gets a finger before the ball hits the stumps. It's a length ball on off stump, punched on the up back at the bowler who can't collect cleanly. But he'll collect the wicket with glee. Shaheen has punched a hole into New Zealand's top order 25/2

    15.6 this is a sensational yorker, one that would've made Wasim Akram proud. Full, dead straight to begin with, but it tails in really late to surprise Latham, who jams his bat down to keep it out but ends up playing down the wrong line. The ball sneaks through the inside edge to smash the stumps. This is excellent, excellent bowling. Let off earlier in the over, but can't make Pakistan pay. What a bowler this Shaheen Shah Afrifdi. Pakistan are chipping away! 73/4
    37.3 he's delivered a vital breakthrough and brings out his 'boom' celebration! Nicholls steps out to swing this length ball into the leg side. Mid-off and mid-on were up, so he looked to go leg side. But this is an off-cutter which the batsman didn't anticipated, played early, missed it altogether and saw his stumps rattled. 148/5
    40.3 chips straight to long-on. A nervous-looking shot. This is lobbed right up and in his reach for a big swing. But it isn't a big swing. Ends up lobbing it harmlessly for long-on 157/6
    46.1 Imam! Lobs it up for himself with his right hand after running in a bit too much from deep square. Then he gets his balance right and holds on. Nice adjustment in the end, because that could have looked very embarrassing. It was a slower ball outside off and Southee dragged it in that direction 177/7
    48.4 bowled him! Top bowling from the youngster. Gets the offcutter in at middle stump from wide of the crease. Sodhi swings for the angle but is done by the deviation. It's how he gets wickets, but he's powerless against this. Middle stump tonked. 198/8
    49.1 delicious. An inswining yorker with middle stump on the radar. Boult backs away to try and slice this but he misses. Splits middle and off 199/9

    28.2 top-edges this pull and Sodhi takes an excellent catch running in from mid-on. Looked to fetch the pull from way outside off, reached for it and didn't get any power behind that. 155/1
    28.5 arches back to make room and he upper cuts this straight into the hands of Nicholls at third man. Little more bat and that would've sailed over the man there. Both set batsmen dismissed. 156/2

    32.4 it looks like a deflected catch at midwicket as Henry Nicholls, the short leg fielder, is down. Malik has smoked a pull shot straight into Nicholls and it seems to have caught his left shoulder. Sodhi takes the catch at midwicket, running in from mid-on. Nicholls is back on his feet. That was straight off his shoulder cap. He's okay. 177/3
    37.2 short and very wide outside off. Skids away and gets big too. Sarfraz doesn't get the feet back and across and is sort of reaching for this with the cut. Thick edge is held on 204/4
