Tim Southee402426.00152110
5.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, full and straight, Rahmanullah loses his bearings shuffling across his stumps to flick and misses. Big lbw shout upheld. Gulbadin talks him out of burning a review. Wisely. He was stone dead hit on the shin in front of middle. Would've been three reds on DRS.. 19/3
17.6 to Mohammad Nabi, back of a length on fourth stump at 135 kph, Nabi backs away for a leg side heave but is beaten for pace a touch and slams this back into Southee at thigh height. The wily medium pacer clutches on reaching forward with sharp reflexes.. 115/5
Trent Boult401734.25142000
3.1 to Hazratullah Zazai, another short ball finally pays off for Boult at 138 kph! Zazai cramped back of a length on the body, goes to flick this off the back foot over midwicket but instead a leading edge balloons to midwicket in the ring, simple catch for Santner.. 12/2
18.2 to Najibullah Zadran, Neesham with another stupendous diving catch at long-off! Full and straight on off, tries to clear the ground straight for another six but gets this more off the toe and it lobs up toward Neesham, who was fielding quite wide and has to track 20 yards left before diving to clutch on 10 yards inside the rope.. 119/6
18.4 to Karim Janat, full on the legs, flicks this high and deep to Sodhi at deep fine leg, who judges this well before lunging forward to take a safe catch at knee height about five yards inside the rope.. 121/7
Adam Milne401714.25121000
2.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, what a catch! Short ball on off stump, Shahzad tries to uppercut this over wicketkeeper and slip. Gets it off the toe of the bat and it flutters up high to Conway's right. He was wrong-footed but is still able to reach up with his right hand to stab this taking some steam off it initially before clutching on fully after a bobble and tumbling to the turf. Acrobatic but effective!. 8/1
James Neesham402416.0092000
19.6 to Rashid Khan, another full toss at knee height on fifth stump, Rashid finally makes contact but mishits this in the air over cover and it's a sliding catch on the ring by the captain Williamson. On another day, that over would've gone for 24, but no such luck for Rashid failing to score on a series of full tosses.. 124/8
Mitchell Santner2027013.5011210
Ish Sodhi201316.5031010
9.6 to Gulbadin Naib, drag on! Frankly the worst ball of the over. Short and wide, spinning even wider outside off, might have been called a wide had he left it alone. Instead Gulbadin tries to drag this with a pull down the ground and drags a toe/bottom edge back onto off stump. Gulbadin will be wishing he could have that one back. Definitely won't be posting that on his Instagram Stories.. 56/4

Mohammad Nabi402606.50103000
Mujeeb Ur Rahman403117.7594010
3.1 to DJ Mitchell, Mujeeb strikes. The carrom ball takes the feather. He has got his rhythm going now. On a length, wide outside off, strong square field on the off side. Mitchell looks to open the face on the drive, the ball turns away a touch, and Shahzad doesn't drop these. 26/1
Hamid Hassan301404.66102000
Rashid Khan402716.7552010
8.5 to MJ Guptill, seems to have picked this wrong'un as he is slog-sweeping it to leg but picking it is one thing and connecting it quite another. He has missed altogether, and has been castled. Wicket No. 400 in T20 cricket for Rashid. 57/2
