10.5

Shahid Afridi to Fulton, no run, played forward

10.6

11.1

Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, good start, planting on a good length outside off and that carried through with some good pace - the batsman failing to connect, luckily for him really

11.2

Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, stands tall and delivers one which steeples in from just outside off and defended on the back foot

11.3

Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, tries to straight pull off the back foot, but mistimes the ball and it crashes into the ground in front of off

11.4

Umar Gul to Fulton, 2 runs, straight half-volley, brandished through mid-on with a lovely pick-up off the legs, and a good call to come back for the second

11.5

Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, outside off, better length, and though Fulton thinks of driving, he checks his shot into the covers

11.6

Umar Gul to Fulton, 1 run, on leg, easily played off the knee to the man at deep square; not quite where the bowler was aiming for, but he will be happy with an economical over

New Zealand 78/2   PG Fulton 4* (9b)

12.1

Shahid Afridi to Fulton, 1 run, driven off the legs to midwicket

12.3

Shahid Afridi to Fulton, no run, half-hearted shout on off which told its own story

12.4

Shahid Afridi to Fulton, 2 runs, played off the legs behind square and the fielder trips in returning

12.5

Shahid Afridi to Fulton, 1 run, cutting back in from outside off

New Zealand 84/2   PG Fulton 8* (13b)

13.2

Umar Gul to Fulton, 2 runs, a mishit, too, from Fulton - straight down the ground

13.3

Umar Gul to Fulton, OUT, two in three balls now for Gul as Fulton, standing straight, doesn't get over the ball and pops a straightforward catch to cover

PG Fulton c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 10 (12m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 87/4   PG Fulton 10 (15b)
