    11.2 an important wicket, lands on a good length outside off, makes room and slices it straight into the palms of Redmond at third man 92/3
    5.5 Kamran's gone, tried to clear mid-on but didn't get it off the middle, chipped it to Bond who ran a few paces to his right and snapped a testing chance 34/1
    7.6 the slower one does the trick, Umar was going for everything out there and tried to slog-sweep that good-length delivery over midwicket, was deceived by the pace and got the top edge, Watling, running back, took a well-judged overhead catch. His debut catch, that 56/2
    12.4 brilliantly taken by Southee, Afridi's staying his ground. Tossed up outside off, he took it from a good length, coming down the track, and struck it hard and flat towards long-off where Southee, taking a couple of steps coming in, snaps it inches from the ground, an excellent low catch and replays confirm it was clean 101/4
    14.5 Redmond imitates the Afridi celebration again! Tossed up again, lands on a length on middle and Malik drills it straight back to him and he accepts it gleefully, bending to his left 116/5
    17.2 short, Butler, who's had a bad day today, ends up taking a sharp catch at third man, it was cut hard towards him but he managed to cup it in front of his face, slipped and crashed on his back but held on 134/6
    not out
    19.3 almost cleared the ropes again but got far more elevation than he would have wanted, in the slot on middle and he picked it well in his attempt to clear long-on but couldn't quite succeed, Nathan McCullum judged it to perfection 158/7
    19.6 attempting the scoop over short-fine, it's a full toss on the off stump, gets the top edge and Franklin takes it well running to his back 161/8

    2.6 catching practice, thank you very much, says Fawad Alam, he reaches out to a pitched up delivery outside off and the ball travels quickly off the face of the bat to backward point, Fawad didn't have to move much at all 33/2
    1.5 excellent reflexes! Not the best of deliveries - full and wide outside off and asking to be smashed on the front foot, Guptill flays at it and the ball catches the thick outside edge and Kamran Akmal falls to his right and plucks it one handed 25/1
    4.2 thick edge! well that run-out chance didnt cost anything, he reaches out to a pitched up delivery outside off gets a thick edge on the drive to Akmal 34/3
    6.2 another one bites the dust and New Zealand are in trouble, it was a friendly short delivery which sat up nicely and Styris went for the pull but perhaps didn't spot the fielder in the deep, straight down Umar Akmal's throat at deep square leg 41/4
    15.5 he tries to go over the top by advancing down the pitch, Ajmal cleverly cuts back on the pace and beats the batsman in flight, easy stumping and Watling doesn't have time to drag his foot back 95/6
    10.2 catching practice again, Broom makes room to try something different and upset the bowler's rhythm, he gets on his knee and tries to slice it over third man but the ball dips and lands straight on Gul's palms 67/5
    17.6 chips down the track to deposit it over long-on, he gets underneath the ball but doesn't get enough elevation, easy take for Gul 106/8
    16.6 he fires this one towards the pads on seeing the batsman make a bit of room, the ball clips his pads and hits the top of leg stump, Butler seemed to suggest that he wasn't ready, by the time he looked up Afridi was ready to deliver, perhaps he should have backed away 98/7
    not out
    18.3 that's the end of the game, Bond pulls a good length delivery and the ball travels flat and quick to deep midwicket, Malik takes it low and close to the turf, no doubt about that, Redmond won't bat because of his groin injury 112/10
    absent hurt
