    14.3 bowled im. What a big wicket that is. A great comeback from Sami after two loose deliveries. Gets the length right, on off and middle, tailing back in just enough. Guptill tries a deft dab to third man but that inward movement is responsible for Guptill tapping the ball back onto his stumps. What an innings though 127/3
    7.2 gone this time. Looks to go down the ground again, but that may have been the offcutter. That variation may have solely been responsible for the wicket. Williamson hits the drive to cover after skewing it off the outer half of the bat. Good chnage-up. Williamson has done his job, though. Onto the power. 62/1
    8.5 gone, the switch hit doesn't work on this occasion. A flat delivery on middle, enough flight for Munro to get under it though. Times it pretty well but not enough power. Straight down the throat of the sweeper cover. Afridi strikes again 75/2
    15.2 gone. Anderson's cameo ends. A googly outside off, Anderson looks to go down the ground but mis-times the drive. Skews it off the outside half of the bat down to long-off. Malik takes a sitter. 132/4

    18.6 taken, great catch and that ends a great over too. Another well-executed yorker outside off, but Ronchi advances to covert it into a low full toss. Sliced straight to Malik at point. Had it beaten him, it would have been four. 164/5

    5.3 skied and gone, what an innings that has been. Full and wide outside off, Sharjeel looks for a lofted drive but the ball scoops up off the outside half. Guptill backtracks to take an important but easy take. 65/1
    12.2 straight down the throat of deep midwicket. A horrible shot, but plenty of pressure was built up. Shortish on off, Shehzad goes deep and flick-pulls but doesn't get enough power 96/3
    8.2 and taken. Latif has fallen to the pressure more than anything. Santner drags his length shorter, anticipating the big slog from Latif. Latif shimmies down but fails to get anywhere close to the pitch, lofted straight down the throat of Elliott at long-on. Fantastic comeback. 79/2
    17.4 Akmal's struggling innings ends, and has done his side quite some damage in the process. Another full toss on middle, he just lobs it in the hands of long-on. Guptill takes an easy catch 140/5
    15.1 what a catch from Anderson at long-off. Match-changing moment. Afridi came to the pitch and got under it too, just not enough elevation as the lofted drive flies down to long-off. Looks like it still has enough to clear Anderson but he stretches out his long arms to take a stunner. Timed his leap to absolute perfection 123/4
