    1.3 134 kph, that's the way Zaman plays, I Guess. A full delivery on off, Zaman clears his front leg, looking to swat another wild drive over mid-off, but the ball skews off the outside half to cover. Just popped up. Undone by extra bounce, that's the first batsman to fail to adapt to extra bounce despite a chance 4/1
    2.2 lovely catch from Kitchen again. Well done, much harder than the Taylor catch, but he keeps his eyes on the ball, tracks it through almost every point of its trajectory. Full delivery on off, angling away, a thick leading edge is found because of that extra bounce again. Lobs up over point, but Kitchen runs back, keeps his eyes on the ball, and with his back to the pitch, he takes a watchful catch. Well done. The second Pakistan batsman to fail to adapt to extra bounce. 4/2
    3.5 135 kph, too many shots from Pakistan. To be fair, it was in the slot. Full and straight, a hint of inward movement. Nawaz clears his front leg and swings, but that movement takes it to the inside half of the bat, as opposed to the middle. Just chipped to mid-on 15/3
    5.4 87 kph, straight to short cover. Pakistan 22 for 4. Lots of flight, drops late, but ends up being overpitched, and that's the invitation Haris wanted, gets forward and drives the ball straight to the fielder. Wanted to go over the infield, but got too close to the ball eventually. 22/4
    19.4 six and out, and Pakistan are all out for 105! Another slower delivery on middle and leg, Azam cannot time his lofted drive and can only chip the catch to long-on 105/10
    9.1 slips over, over-balances and Sarfraz is stumped! Slow through the air outside off, Sarfraz looks to sweep but there is some extra bounce. As he plays the sweep, his front foot slides and his back foot slides in the opposite direction, leaving him showing off his agility with the splits. The keeper takes off the bails quickly, much to Pakistan's misery. 38/5
    9.2 edged and taken! A golden duck for Shadab. Lots of flight from Santner, draws Shadab forward with a loopy delivery, Shadab comes forward, drives and gets a thick outside edge. Phillips juggles and juggles and juggles again but the ball is high enough, he doesn't panic much and takes the catch! 38/6
    13.5 132 kph, hurried for pace and Pakistan slump further. Shortish delivery outside off, Faheem is too late through the pull, harried into his shot, and all he can do is spoon a catch to short cover. Spliced away. 53/7
    16.4 full delivery outside off, 138 kph, slightly wider this time than the previous two and Hasan swings again, but the ball takes a leading edge and gets so much elevation. Southee runs a few metres from his cover position, gets underneath the catch and takes it. A bright cameo 83/8
    18.4 Rance and Southee combine again. Digs this one in, around off, Amir backs away, the ball gets too big on him and all he can do is mis-time a forehand pull over the bowler's head. Southee gets across from mid-off 90/9
