    1.2 what a start! A straight one, Vincent aims a loose drive, the ball finds a big gap between bat and pad and send his off stump cartwheeling. A poor shot so early in the day 3/1
    37.1 there it is! A flighted delivery on off stump, and Fleming can only shovel a tame return catch back to the bowler! A disappointing end to a fantastic captain's innings, and Pakistan have a chance to get stuck into New Zealand's middle-order 168/4
    6.6 this time Astle's lack of footwork proves his undoing as he tries to drive with a half-step forward, is not over the ball and the resulting edge flies into the midriff of second slip. Whatever Fleming said to Astle earlier in the over didn't appear to have any affect 23/2
    14.1 the break in play has done the trick for Pakistan! Fulton goes, trapped half-forward by a good-length delivery. It pitched in line but maybe he was a shade unlucky as replays suggest it could have been sliding down leg. But due reward for Iftikhar nonetheless, who has started his spell very nicely 60/3
    48.2 Styris gives himself room again and launches it into the deep but Iftikhar Anjum takes an outstanding running catch above his head at long off to end an excellent innings. The wounded Styris limps off along with his runner, but his knockhas made a match of this 254/6
    45.2 Oram aims a slash down the ground, the top edge goes high to third man and Umar Gul takes a good catch coming out of the lights and the evening gloom. Oram departs but his innings has really pepped up the New Zealand innings 220/5
    49.5 McCullum looks to give himself room and find the gap but Shoaib takes a good running catch about five yards in from the rope at wide long-off 270/7

    12.4 once again Oram gets extra bounce - not surprising given he is 6'5" - and Hafeez spars at the ball, gets a thick edge and McCullum takes a diving catch wide to his right 65/3
    3.6 that'll cheer him up! Short again, but tighter to the batsman, and Farhat's slashed cut gets a top-edge and flies down towards third man. Kyle Mills gets under it, clings on with a tumble, and Pakistan have lost their first wicket! 22/1
    8.4 got 'im! That's huge! Short and wide, a long-hop really, but Younis can only slap the ball straight at the chest of backward point, and New Zealand have the big breakthrough! Younis could have clobbered that anywhere! 45/2
    36.3 a vital wicket for New Zealand and a real hammer blow for Pakistan. Yousuf looked to drive but his hands slipped on the handle and the ball flew at thigh height straight to Fleming who had moved round to wide mid off. Fleming reaps the reward for the bowling change. Wily old dog. 177/5
    16.1 banged in, Afridi top edges an attempted hook and the ball arcs straight to Bond at short fine leg A buzz accompanied Afridi to the middle but he returned in silence 83/4
    41.6 and that could quite possibly be that. The last ball of Vettori's spell, and Shoaib holes out to deep cover! Beaten in flight, he got underneath an attempted lofted drive, and Astle took a fine spiralling catch. Pakistan in real trouble now 202/7
    40.6 short again, but Razzaq is out! A flat-batted mow over the leg-side, but it's a comfortable catch for the man in the deep. Disappointment for Razzaq and Pakistan, but jubiliation for New Zealand, who must sense that victory is theirs for the taking now 195/6
    46.3 and that's an emphatic way to finish! It's two wickets in two balls, as Fleming takes the catch that sends New Zealand into the semi-finals! Akmal gave himself room, and lollipopped a simple catch to short midwicket. 223/10
    43.1 Rana Naved doesn't like it up 'im, as Corporal Jones from Dad's Army might have said! Short and aggressive, and McCullum takes a gloved pull down the leg-side. Good hostile bowling, and the end is jolly nearly nigh 205/8
    46.2 well, that livened things up! The substitute Ross Taylor pulls off a blinding pick-up-and-throw from gully to ping the non-striker's stumps. Bob Willis, who has clearly been drinking too much of the local tea, sums it up thus: "It's not Rudolph Nureev [sic], it's Umar Gul" 223/9
