Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Chad Bowes, 2.6 ov), 2-56 (Will Young, 8.3 ov), 3-121 (Daryl Mitchell, 15.4 ov), 4-128 (Tom Latham, 16.4 ov), 5-149 (James Neesham, 18.4 ov) • DRS
2.6 to CJ Bowes, Castled! 142.6 k's, fuller on the stumps, Bowes tries to swipe it across the line and completely misses it as it sneaks through and disturbs the timberwork behind. Shaheen has drawn first-blood for Pakistan.. 20/1
15.4 to DJ Mitchell, Gets his man! Slower delivery outside off, Mitchell stands tall and looks to tonk it down the ground, gets deceived by the lack of pace as he gets it off the bottom of the blade and it carries all the way down Fakhar Zaman's throat at cow corner. A timely wicket for Pakistan just when the pair was looking ominous.. 121/3
16.4 to TWM Latham, Rauf strikes back! Fractionally short of a length this time, Latham looks to hoick it across the line but it gets big on him, brushes his outside edge and it's safely gobbled up by Mohammad Rizwan. Rauf makes the impact yet again for Pakistan at the backend of the innings. 128/4
18.4 to JDS Neesham, Gone this time! This is yet another death-bowling masterclass from Haris Rauf. Follows up his off-cutter with a ferocious bumper. Neesham is very late on his pull shot and skies it into the leg-side. Fakhar Zaman runs in from deep midwicket to take a simple catch.. 149/5
8.3 to WA Young, Holed out to long-on! Shadab gets his man this time. Leg-break again, well outside the channel, Young tries to drag it into the leg-side but ends up skying it off the bottom half of his bat. Fakhar Zaman gobbles it up at long-on and New Zealand are now two down. 56/2

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Babar Azam, 1.5 ov), 2-17 (Mohammad Rizwan, 3.4 ov), 3-39 (Saim Ayub, 7.1 ov), 4-45 (Fakhar Zaman, 8.3 ov), 5-55 (Imad Wasim, 10.2 ov), 6-64 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 11.5 ov), 7-88 (Shadab Khan, 14.1 ov), 8-149 (Faheem Ashraf, 18.3 ov), 9-159 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 19.4 ov), 10-159 (Haris Rauf, 19.6 ov) • DRS
18.3 to Faheem Ashraf, And gone! Henry gets his man this time. Low full-toss on the stumps, Faheem stoops low to get underneath but cannot get the right elevation as he smokes it straight down long-on's throat.. 149/8
1.5 to Babar Azam, That's an absolute hanger from Ravindra! Full and wide outside off from Milne, Babar throws his bat, it takes the outside edge and flies down to thirdman. Ravindra runs in from the boundary and takes a superb diving catch, inches off the turf. Huge wicket for New Zealand as they get the prized scalp of Babar.. 6/1
14.1 to Shadab Khan, That's out! Banged in short, outside off, Shadab shuffles away and tries to upper-cut it over deep third, splices it and holes out at deep backward point instead. A streaky innings from Shadab concludes, leaving Pakistan seven down. 88/7
11.5 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, Got his man! Or has he? Flipper out of the front of the hand again from Sodhi, Shaheen moves across and looks to club it away into the on-side. It sneaks under his bat and thuds into his back leg. The on-field umpire raises his finger and Shaheen immediately reviews. Replays suggest it's pitching in-line and it's umpire's call. Sodhi has struck and Pakistan are now six down.. 64/6
7.1 to Saim Ayub, Edged and gone! Gentle-paced delivery from Neesham, Saim jumps down the track to get to the pitch but he's not quite there, prods at it and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Neesham has struck gold immediately for the tourists and Pakistan are now in a big spot of bother.. 39/3
19.4 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Neesham strikes back! What a breakthrough this is for New Zealand. Another full delivery from Neesham, was right in the arc for Iftikhar to loft it over but the blade twirls in his hand as he holes out to long-on. A swashbuckling effort from his comes to a close with Pakistan still requiring 5 off 2.. 159/9
19.6 to Haris Rauf, Can't clear the boundary and he's out! Length ball in the channel, Rauf shuffles across and looks to heave it over the on-side, ends up splicing it and it's safely gobbled up at cow corner. Neesham keeps his cool and New Zealand have won by four runs.. 159/10
8.3 to Fakhar Zaman, Ravindra plucks out Fakhar! Sees the southpaw charging down the track and shortens his length, Fakhar heaves wildly across the line and fails to connect as the ball dips and sneaks through his bat and pad. Latham does exceptionally well to gather this cleanly and affect the stumping. Fakhar trudges off the field with Pakistan 45/4.. 45/4
10.2 to Imad Wasim, Holed out! Loopy delivery on the stumps, Imad jumps down and tries to hit him down the ground. The bat twirls in his hands as he totally mistimes his attempted stroke and sends it straight down long-on's throat. Ravindra has done the trick again for New Zealand and Pakistan are now in huge trouble.. 55/5
