    22.3 Zaman dashes down the track and holes out to long-on! He has lost his patience after having played out a maiden. Length ball, angled in on middle, Zaman does not quite meet the pitch and ends up slicing a catch to Matt Henry at the edge of the boundary. Colin de Grandhomme waves him goodbye 98/2
    13.6 Is Hafeez out hit wicket? Has his heel tipped the bail off? NZ think they have their man. The TV umpire has been called in. Ferguson kept pushing Hafeez back with the short stuff. This is short again, at the body, he jumps back and whips it away to long leg. But in the process he has dislodged his own bail. What a way to go 64/1
    48.4 slower ball, and he saw it right through and had a heave towards the midwicket fence. Miscues the shot, though, and it carries all the way to Nicholls. This time he holds on, and that's the end of a very useful innings for Pakistan. 264/5
    40.3 terrific catch in the deep and a huge wicket! Another slower ball, and lures Sohail into playing a mistimed flick. There was still some work for Worker to do (no pun intended, I promise!) and he did it effortlessly at the square leg fence, running forward and taking a superb low catch 206/3
    46.2 this time it is wide and full, and Malik miscues his heave through the offside. It goes towards Worker on the point boundary, who runs around to his left and picks up the catch. The end of a short but effective little innings from Shoaib Malik 250/4
    49.4 TIMBER! Full, straight, and fast. You miss, I hit, he seems to say, and he walks the talk. Fourth wicket for Ferguson. Why Latham didn't turn to him earlier, we would not know, but perhaps that has made the critical difference between allowing Pakistan to post a winning total and not? 278/7
    49.1 GOT HIM WITH A SLOWER BALL! Looks like a back-of-the-hand, or at least from the side of the hand, from Ferguson, and it was as straight as it could be. Ashraf looks for a big heave down the ground, but only hears the death rattle behind him. 275/6
    49.6 short ball and that's a FIVER for Ferguson! Intelligent lengths and changes in pace, and Lockie Ferguson gets another wicket, as the short ball is whacked by Hasan only in the air on the onside, where Worker does the rest. This is still a fine total by Pakistan, as they finish at 279 for 8. That's 11 more than what they got batting first the last time they clinched a bilateral series against New Zealand in February 2011. 279/8
