    13.5 Taken? Yes! full and wide outside off, forces the batsman to reach at it once more, but Fakhar slaps it over point anyway. Man in the deep though, and it's an excellent catch from the outfielder. Dives forward and completes a tough low catch. Those dismissals are always difficult for the fielder to execute. Full marks. Small delay as the umpire wants to check if the catch was completed. Looks like Bruce's palms, ball in hand, hit the ground while trying to complete that catch. Were his fingers under the ball? Nothing conclusive on the replays. The on-field umpire's decision stands. Fakhar falls for 46. 106/3
    3.6 there's a noise, but not out says the umpire. New Zealand review for the caught behind. Shehzad walked across to the off side, in an attempt to cheekily paddle this behind on the leg side, but misses the shot. Taken low by the keeper, but did it come off the glove? Yes, it did! There's the first wicket. 30/1
    8.6 sliced, but straight to point! Earns the wicket by cramping Babar for room. Floater on a good length outside off, and Babar is enticed to cut. Played with the sliced bat, and goes straight to KW. Simple take for the NZ captain 66/2
    15.5 Santner wins the battle! Tossed up full outside off, and tries to heave this over cover. Comes down the ground but the shot takes the top edge. It's a skyer, and pouched by short third man 123/4

    17.6 the bowler has the last laugh, though! Flat, full and wide outside off. Forces the left-hander to stretch, who drags his slog to mid on. De Grandhomme redeems himself after that dropped catch 156/5
    18.4 full and quick! Tough to put those away. Yorker on middle and leg, and it crashes into his pads, before ricocheting onto off stump. A fiery delivery 164/6

    12.6 holes out! There's the big wicket! Floated full outside off and Guptill goes chasing behind it. Swept in front of square but no distance in that. Comfortably taken by the navy man, Zaman 87/3
    5.1 strikes first ball! Good length and wide outside off, and it's been cut really hard. But, oh no, straight to Babar at cover. There's the first wicket! Quite a stinger that Babar took, but he managed to hold on to that. Taken from in front of his face 32/1
    12.2 back of a length outside off, charges down the wicket but misses the shot. Tries to slog this over the bowler's head but he's deceived by the leg side. Goes past his outside edge and he's stranded outside his crease. Easily stumped by the captain 84/2
    17.3 crashes into middle stump! The bowler gives Bruce the silent treatment after knocking him over. Perfect yorker on middle stump. That's unplayable. 134/6
    13.3 bowled him! The cutter pitches on a good length outside off, angles into the batsman, who misses his pull. Goes under his bat, and takes the top of off stump. Another big wicket falls 89/4
    16.3 what's going on? Confusion all around. Full outside leg and it's a terrific yorker that he can't put away. The ball goes between both legs and through to the keeper. Sarfraz throws at the stumps at the non-striker's because the batsmen were contemplating running across. Amir thinks he's got his man: not with the run out, but with the caught behind. They've taken the review. And yes, Amir is right. The ball hit the bat before going through his legs. Brings an end to the cameo. Taylor tells his partner, 'I didn't hit it, I promise', before walking out. Interesting, but the replays showed a spike on the snicko 128/5
