    28.5 wicket No. 15 for Afridi, he adopts his regulation celebratory pose with both arms outstretched, it was a flighted and full ball, Guptill moved forward and wanted to whip it to the leg side, he misses the straight delivery and is bowled, an annoyed Guptill walks off 112/3
    0.4 the aeroplane takes off early at Pallekele, Shoaib goes through Brendon with a peach that pitches way outside off, he goes out to push at it, but to his horror it comes back a long way, and hits off stump, kept a bit low, and there was a mile-long gap between bat and pad, Baz just went pushing at it from the crease almost 8/1
    12.3 Gul ends How's misery finally after threatening to do so before, gets one spot on, full and hurrying on to the stumps with the angle, in the rut that How is in, no way he was going to hit that one, struck on the pads, and Gul's persistent appeal gets a positive decision from the umpire for Pakistan, How doesn't bother to review, was there an inside edge? there was a sound, it was also hitting middle of middle 55/2

    29.1 review time, Hafeez raps Franklin on the pads and on-field umpire Harper says that's out after a long long time, a tossed up delivery from round the wicket that pitched outside off, and turned in towards Franklin, who plays outside the line of that one, is struck on the pads around off and that was going on to hit middle, Taylor asks Franklin to review that, no use, Franklin's on his way 113/4
    41.6 Gul has his man now, bowled it very full on the stumps, Scott went walking across the stumps towards the off side this time, all over the place really, missed on the flick across the line, and umpire Harper thought for a while before sending Styris on his way, they think about a review but decide against it, that would have taken out middle and leg 175/5
    45.5 Gul gets him now, it is the slower one, Nathan did not pick it, went for the heave and inside edged the ball on to the stumps, the off bail is removed, that's all Gull needs as he sets off in celebration 210/6
    49.3 Oram departs now, it doesn't matter, he has played his part, went for another maximum over long on, but this time it wasn't monstrous enough, and settled into the fielder's hands 295/7

    1.2 more bad news for Pakistan, Southee has struck, hang on, Hafeez is reviewing the lbw, it was pitching on off, short of length ball, hits Hafeez, who is stuck on the crease, on the knee roll, he was looking to work that to square leg, umpire Llong raises the finger, Hafeez has a long chat with Shehzad before going for the review, it may have just shaved leg stump, that decision is left to the on-field umpire, so Hafeez is gone, 5/1
    6.1 Mills has got the wicket his bowling seemed on the verge of getting, once more the batsman looking to work the ball square on the leg side, a short of length ball heading for middle and off, hit just above the knee roll, Shehzad wonders about the referral, but with Pakistan having already used one up, he walks off, Pakistan are two down 23/2
    7.1 make that four down, Ross Taylor does not return the favour to Kamran Akmal, what an ingrate, a length ball around off, Kamran looking to work the ball to leg, the outside edge flies low to first slip, Taylor wants nothing to spoil his birthday bonanza, he clasps that one and New Zealand are in dreamland 23/4
    6.4 bowled him, New Zealand can do little wrong here, Mills sets off on a delighted run after getting through Younis' defences, that one didn't swing away after pitching on a length, Younis plays outside the line and the offstump is on the ground, Pakistan in tatters here 23/3
    14.4 there's the fifth, Pakistan have lost their middle-order rock, once more the batsman was looking to play to leg, a length ball that takes the edge and flies to gully, where Styris takes a low catch 45/5
    28.3 Umar gives it away, he was itching to take on the spinner, got a shortish one and went for the pull, but it was a touch quicker and he was late on the shot, and got it high in the air, it took a while in coming down, and settled neatly in to the hands of deep midwicket who was quite some way in from the boundary 102/7
    17.1 Afridi departs, Oram gets one to angle in from over the stumps on a length, nothing superlative about the ball, just that he played inside the line, and it crashed in to the middle stump, sliding downhill faster than an avalanche are Pakistan 66/6
    41.1 Styris has struck, Razzaq was looking for the Hollywood hit over long-on, can't get hold of it and it balloons in the air towards Oram at long-on, Pakistan lose their ninth 191/9
    32.4 There is a review now, Harper has raised the finger for an lbw appeal, both McCullums jump up and down in appeal, length ball pitching outside off, hit him on off and was going on to hit middle, Rehman falls, Pakistan have no more reviews 125/8

    41.4 game over, Shoaib lasted all of two balls, another short one from Styris, Shoaib flails at it and gets a top edge that flies towards mid-on, Nathan McCullum gets across and takes a smart catch, and New Zealand get their third win of the tournament 192/10
