Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Mohammad Rizwan, 1.6 ov), 2-30 (Babar Azam, 4.2 ov), 3-109 (Saim Ayub, 11.2 ov), 4-123 (Shadab Khan, 12.5 ov), 5-123 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 12.6 ov), 6-131 (Fakhar Zaman, 13.6 ov), 7-159 (Imad Wasim, 17.5 ov), 8-160 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 18.1 ov), 9-181 (Faheem Ashraf, 19.3 ov), 10-182 (Haris Rauf, 19.5 ov) • DRS
12.5 to Shadab Khan, edged and taken! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that zips through. Shadab has a nibble at it without much foot movement and can only feather it through to the keeper! Shadab was done in by the extra pace and bounce there, and NZ have their fourth!. 123/4
12.6 to Iftikhar Ahmed, what a ripper! And Henry has convinced his skipper to review! Back of a length delivery that is angled into off stump. On pitching, though, it nips away sharply and squares up Iftikhar completely. The umpire does not think there is bat involved but we are going to have another look nevertheless! But hang on, looks like Henry was right! There is a spike as the ball is close to the shoulder of the bat, and Henry now has two in two!. 123/5
18.1 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Henry gets the hat-trick! Full delivery on middle and leg stump. Shaheen swings for the hills and miscues it miles up into the air towards long on. Mitchell settles himself on the fence, catches it, sees that he is going to step onto the cushion and parries it calmly to Bowes! The third umpire has a look at it but everything is fine! Henry has a hat-trick, and Pakistan are eight down!. 160/8
1.6 to Mohammad Rizwan, huge appeal, and given this time! Length delivery on off stump that nips back sharply and causes Rizwan all sorts of problems. He falls over and does not get bat on it as the ball smashes into the pads, right in front of middle and off stump. Rizwan has a chat with Babar and then decides to review! Height could be a factor again but with the umpire having raised his finger, this could spell trouble for Rizwan. No bat involved, and three reds on Ball Tracking! Rizwan has to go!. 14/1
4.2 to Babar Azam, knocks him over! Length delivery that pitches on off stump and seams back into Babar. He backs away, comes down the track and looks to force it through the off side. He is in no shape to play that stroke, though, and misses the ball by a considerable distance as it thuds into the top of middle stump!. 30/2
19.3 to Faheem Ashraf, soft dismissal! Sharp back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump that climbs onto the batter. Faheem looks for the pull again but is awfully late on the stroke. In the end, he clinks it straight to the bowler!. 181/9
19.5 to Haris Rauf, holes out to long on! Full and outside off stump. Rauf has another mighty swing at this but the ball is just far away from his arc. He has to reach out for it, meaning that he ends up chalking it straight down long on's throat!. 182/10
17.5 to Imad Wasim, in the air, and taken! Banged into the track on middle and leg stump, and this looks like another slower delivery. Imad does not quite pick it early enough and swipes too early, slicing it tamely towards short third man. Henry calls early and holds onto the chance!. 159/7
13.6 to Fakhar Zaman, holes out to deep backward square leg, oh dear! Given even more air on a length on middle and leg stump, and Fakhar's eyes light up. He looks to mow it over deep square leg but is a tad early into the stroke, meaning that he drags it towards deep backward square leg, where Chapman does the rest!. 131/6

TOTAL15.3 Ov (RR: 6.06, 81 Mins)94
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Chad Bowes, 1.3 ov), 2-13 (Will Young, 2.6 ov), 3-29 (Daryl Mitchell, 4.5 ov), 4-56 (Tom Latham, 10.3 ov), 5-75 (Mark Chapman, 11.5 ov), 6-88 (James Neesham, 13.2 ov), 7-89 (Rachin Ravindra, 13.5 ov), 8-91 (Adam Milne, 14.3 ov), 9-91 (Matt Henry, 14.4 ov), 10-94 (Ben Lister, 15.3 ov) • DRS
2.6 to WA Young, cleans him up! Full delivery just outside off stump that might have curved into the batter very late. Young plants his front foot and looks for the booming off drive, only managing a thick inside edge that smashes into middle and off stump! Zing bails everywhere, and Shaheen raises his arms aloft, like he always does after picking up a wicket!. 13/2
1.3 to CJ Bowes, huge appeal, not given! Back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump that skids through. Bowes plays across the line and misses, getting rapped on the pads. The ball flies off the pad and is taken by backward point too. Pakistan deliberate before opting for the review, just in the nick of time! Zaman does not get a lot of bounce, so he could be in business here! No bat involved, and three reds on Ball Tracking, with the ball smashing into leg stump! Bowes has to walk back!. 6/1
4.5 to DJ Mitchell, straight to mid off, third time unlucky for Mitchell! Full delivery just outside off stump, and this seems to be right in the slot for Mitchell again. On this occasion, though, he just makes a mess of his timing. He chalks it and offers some simple catching practice to Rauf at mid off!. 29/3
10.3 to TWM Latham, huge appeal, and given! Back of a length delivery slanted into the batter on middle and off stump. Latham looks for the pull but misses as the ball skids through and hits him on the back thigh. The umpire has a think about it before raising his finger. Latham, though, wants to have another look! No bat involved, and Ball Tracking reckons the ball would have crashed into the top of leg stump! Latham has to depart!. 56/4
13.2 to JDS Neesham, straight to backward point! Rauf has his revenge! Very full delivery outside off stump. Neesham opens his bat face, uses the pace and gets a decent piece of it. The only problem, though, is that he has laced it straight to Masood at backward point! But hang on...the umpires think this might be a bump ball, and go upstairs. The soft signal is out, though! That came to Neesham on the full, and left his bat on the full, nestling into backward point's palms eventually!. 88/6
13.5 to R Ravindra, cleans him up! Pace is pace, yaar! Full, straight, you-miss-I-hit stuff from Rauf! This one is angled into middle and off stump. Ravindra swings for the hills but loses his shape completely. He is also awfully late on the stroke as the ball thunders into the stumps!. 89/7
15.3 to BG Lister, yes, he can! And he does it with an absolute corker! Length delivery that is angled into middle and off stump. On pitching, though, it nips away. Lister has no clue about it and misses the ball by a mile as it clatters into the stumps! Best T20I figures for Haris Rauf as well, and he, like the entire Pakistan bowling attack, have simply been too hot to handle tonight!. 94/10
11.5 to MS Chapman, and he reaps the reward instantly! Quicker and flatter on a length on off stump. Chapman throws his hands at it and gets a thick outside edge. The ball floats towards short third man, where Zaman judges it nicely, dives forward and completes a smart grab!. 75/5
14.3 to AF Milne, taken comfortably at deep mid wicket! Slowed up just a shade on middle and leg stump. Milne's eyes light up and he looks to smear it over deep mid wicket. He is not to the pitch of the ball, though, and ends up toe-ending it towards deep mid wicket Iftikhar gets under it and does the rest!. 91/8
14.4 to MJ Henry, and he has nicked it through to Rizwan first ball! Length and darted into middle and leg stump. Henry comes down the track and seems to get a feather through to Rizwan, who takes it superbly. The umpire raises his finger but Henry reviews because, well, why not! A clear spike as the ball is close to the bat, and Imad, all of a sudden, is on a hat-trick!. 91/9
