1.1

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, no run, straight and accurate, defended into the covers

1.2

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, FOUR, a genuine edge, and McCullum watches it fly past his right ear! Nazir was forcing off the back foot, and who knows what the keeper was thinking. That was never first slip's catch

1.3

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, FOUR, walloped. That's how to make New Zealand pay. Like a tracer bullet through point

1.4

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 2 runs, driven into the off side, and well fielded this time

1.5

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, FOUR, a flashing, windmill-esque cut shot, and that picked the gap superbly between gully and third man. Yet more runs in an expensive (and unlucky) over

1.6

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, no run, dragged short and too wide as well, but point stoops to field

Pakistan 20/0   MR Gillespie 1-0-14-0
3.1

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, full and angling in to leg stump, turned to midwicket

3.2

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, too short, but Hafeez doesn't time his pull shot. Deep square leg fields on the rope

3.3

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 1 run, this one is timed, but almost too well. The shot lands half a yard in front of Ross Taylor, who does well not be be nutmegged by the bounce

3.4

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, full length and straight, the ball bobbles out to point off an inside-edge, and a quick single results

3.5

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, no run, full again, on leg stump this time, but no joy with an attempted flick for Nazir

3.6

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 1 run, pulled off a good length, and Taylor fields again at deep square leg

Pakistan 33/0   MR Gillespie 2-0-18-0
5.1

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 1 wide, way down the leg-side

5.1

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 3 runs, short and too wide, flailed through the covers off the back foot. Not quite timed, and fielded with a headlong slide inside the rope

5.2

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, slapped down to third man, a bit chancy, but Pakistan can afford that at the moment

5.3

Gillespie to Imran Nazir, 1 run, another single down to third man

5.4

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, much better length, full and straight, and blocked down to mid-off with a full face of the bat

5.5

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, SIX, right in the slot, Hafeez was waiting for this one, and lifted a slower ball straight back over the bowler's head, and all the way into the stand!

5.6

Gillespie to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, quicker delivery to finish, but Pakistan are marching ever onwards

Pakistan 54/0   MR Gillespie 3-0-30-0
