6.1

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, twirled onto a good length from around the wicket, and blocked out to midwicket

6.2

Vettori to Imran Nazir, SIX, beasted over cow corner with two steps down the track and a huge swing of the blade! Massive strike

6.3

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, slower delivery, more flighted, and Vincent in the covers fields with a tumble

6.4

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, turned off the hip and fielded by the keeper

6.5

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, beautiful delivery! That was the arm-ball and Nazir was done like a kipper. Vettori was pleading for the decision, but Harper's unmoved. That was close! Maybe just sneaking down leg

6.6

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, full stride of the front leg and patted into the covers

Pakistan 60/0   DL Vettori 1-0-6-0
8.1

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, dragged down the pitch and defends back to the bowler. Teasing flight

8.2

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, props forward from the crease this time

8.3

Vettori to Imran Nazir, no run, faster and flatter, and nudged round the corner

8.4

Vettori to Imran Nazir, SIX, that's vast. Nazir was playing by numbers there, and chose the right ball to wallop. A quickstep down the wicket and a monstrous heave over long-off

8.5

Vettori to Imran Nazir, 1 run, swept to midwicket to rotate the strike

8.6

Vettori to Younis Khan, no run, another arm-ball that Younis plays off the back foot to gully. Lovely variation, but no success so far

Pakistan 69/1   DL Vettori 2-0-13-0
13.1

Vettori to Younis Khan, 1 run, outside off, worked into short midwicket

13.2

Vettori to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, in towards middle-and-leg, the batsman hardly giving himself room - in fact he was cramped - to cut into the off-side

13.3

Vettori to Younis Khan, OUT, backed away to try to cut a straight one and got a thin edge through which McCullum snapped tidily

Younis Khan c †McCullum b Vettori 4 (22m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

13.4

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, waits on the back foot and drives into the covers for a quick single but, wait, Vincent is in trouble as Patel's throw crashes into the back of his head at close quarters

13.5

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, waits patiently to defend on the back foot

13.6

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, from outside off, Afridi considers the cover drive before recovering to make a very straight shape with body and bat in playing a back-foot defence. Well adjusted, good patience

Pakistan 106/3   DL Vettori 3-0-17-1
17.1

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, a throaty, gurgly roar - but outside the line

17.3

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, comes down and defends forward

17.6

Vettori to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, worked into the leg-side

Pakistan 132/4   DL Vettori 4-0-22-1
