0.1

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, too much width, and that's walloped through the covers. Cracking start for Pakistan

0.2

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, tighter line and defended off the front foot this time

0.3

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, chaos - flicked round the corner and an instant call ... and a belated rejection. Ross Taylor at square leg had time to take aim, but missed by an inch as McCullum hurtled despairingly up to the stumps

0.4

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, Taylor fields again, but no fears this time

0.5

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, flicked off the legs and fielded at midwicket. Tighter line now from Bond

0.6

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, slower ball and spotted early, Hafeez picks up and over the leg-side, a couple of bounces and fielded at deep backward square

Pakistan 6/0   SE Bond 1-0-6-0
2.1

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, that's poor from Bond - he knows where you can and can't bowl in limited-overs cricket, and short and wide outside off is not the spot

2.2

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, runs are coming at a deluge here. Hafeez shaped to pull and gloved it up and away down to fine leg

2.3

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, better line and length, and fielded at point, but that was timed nicely as well. Pakistan are timing it well

2.4

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, slower ball, nurdled down to third man, who fields in the long-barrier position and sends in a speculative return

2.5

Bond to Imran Nazir, no run, better line and length now, and defended out to point, who is being kept busy. No swing as yet

2.6

Bond to Imran Nazir, no run, a slightly uncertain defensive stroke from Nazir, who seems a bit startled by some extra lift off the pitch. Either way, the ball was safely negotiated and fielded at short leg

Pakistan 29/0   SE Bond 2-0-15-0
4.1

Bond to Imran Nazir, no run, full and straight

4.2

Bond to Imran Nazir, no run, tucked down to short third man off the back foot

4.3

Bond to Imran Nazir, 1 run, hint of an appeal as the ball scuttles after pitching, but possibly sneaking down leg. A two-paced pitch?

4.4

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, better bowling from Bond, who sends down a slower ball that tweaks past the edge

4.5

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, SIX, short and clobbered! That wasn't so short but Hafeez was into position so early, and that flew fast and flat over midwicket

4.6

Bond to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, clever batting, just a delicate deflection down the leg-side, and Bond's figures are bruised yet further

Pakistan 42/0   SE Bond 3-0-24-0
14.1

Bond to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, horrible low full toss outside off, driven kindly out inside the cover boundary

14.2

Bond to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, slower ball, picked up with a scooped drive through extra cover

14.3

Bond to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone this time, though - driven flat on the up straight to Fulton at mid-off

Shahid Afridi c Fulton b Bond 6 (5m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

14.4

Bond to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, slower delivery down the off channel, waited and left

14.5

Bond to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, slowish yorker, digs out a single on the off-side

14.6

Bond to Shoaib Malik, 1 wide, huge bouncer - too huge for Umpire Harper's liking

14.6

Bond to Shoaib Malik, 2 runs, bottom-of-the-bat straight drive sails high - but dry - eluding some converging fielders inside the long-off boundary

Pakistan 115/4   SE Bond 4-0-33-1
