15.4 to Nasir Jamshed, caught at long on! Jamshed made room and lofted Vettori towards the boundary. Nathan McCullum had to run to his left and he got there quickly, tumbling to the ground after taking the catch. He seems to have hurt himself. New Zealand are clawing back now. 134/4
5.4 to Imran Nazir, caught and bowled! Nazir's pushed the ball off the front foot right back to Southee, who takes the catch on his follow through. New Zealand have snapped a strong opening stand. Southee caught the ball at chest height to his left. 47/1
19.6 to Shahid Afridi, Afridi throws his bat at a length ball outside off and hits it in the air towards deep cover, where Williamson moves in to take the catch. 177/6
14.4 to Kamran Akmal, Akmal's hacked at the ball and carved it high in the air towards the fielder who is several yards in on the cover boundary, the catch is taken safely this time by Nicol. 129/3
18.4 to Umar Akmal, this time he's been caught at long on! Akmal tried to clear the straight boundary again but couldn't get the ball over Nathan McCullum. 159/5
13.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, bowled him! Hafeez swung across the line at a length ball and just missed it. Franklin hit off stump. 123/2

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.20, 97 Mins)164/9
Fall of wickets: 1-53 (Rob Nicol, 6.4 ov), 2-54 (Kane Williamson, 7.2 ov), 3-102 (Daniel Vettori, 14.1 ov), 4-108 (Brendon McCullum, 15.1 ov), 5-122 (Jacob Oram, 16.2 ov), 6-143 (James Franklin, 17.5 ov), 7-157 (Ross Taylor, 18.4 ov), 8-160 (Tim Southee, 19.3 ov), 9-164 (Nathan McCullum, 19.5 ov)
17.5 to JEC Franklin, length ball, slower, and finds deep midwicket, relief for Pakistan as Franklin goes to pull and top edges it straight to the fielder on the leg side fence, it was a ball that could have gone out of the ground but Franklin didn't quite pick it. 143/6
15.1 to BB McCullum, nope, full and straight, dug out but it trickles back onto the stumps. Well bowled, a good yorker that McCullum dug out but it ran off his back foot I think which deflected it only leg stump, hard enough to remove the bail, unfortunate that. 108/4
6.4 to RJ Nicol, back of a length ball, skids on and bowled him trying to cut, always the most dangerous shot against Afridi and once again he gets a wicket with a quicker ball as the batsmans tries to hang back and wait for it, knocks out off stump. 53/1
14.1 to DL Vettori, step to leg and finds extra cover and Vettori's vigil is over, that wasn't very pleasant at all, and an ugly ending really, giving himself room, trying to go off side with a drive over the top but surprise surprise, it's not timed and flies straight to the fielder. 102/3
16.2 to JDP Oram, step to leg and a swing and miss and out goes leg stump. The spinner have been too good for the NZ batsman today, just a straight ball really, zipped through a little quicker off the pitch, Oram was aiming for Colombo on one knee and missed totally, losing his middle and leg stumps. 122/5
19.3 to TG Southee, outside off stump, swung outside off and an big edge to short third man took a step down, Ajmal sent it wider, Southee had to reach for it and got a huge top edge straight to the fielder on the 45. 160/8
19.5 to NL McCullum, slow ball, long hop outside leg, fired into the leg side, has this found the stands? Nope only finds deep square leg, it was a good ball to hit but he simply didn't catch it properly, put it straight down the fielder's throat. 164/9
