Anwar Ali201517.5070200
0.3 to KS Williamson, first baller for Kane Williamson! It's fuller and it's heading towards the middle stump, Williamson looked to flick it but he knew he was a gonner once he missed it. No chance there at all.. 1/1
Sohail Tanvir402426.00111110
1.6 to AP Devcich, they are missing the straight ones! Tanvir floats it up and Devcich misses his flick, just like Williamson. No problems for the umpire there. That was hitting the leg stump. 10/2
19.1 to L Ronchi, timberland!! Ronchi goes across the line to the length delivery but this was always coming in from round the wicket.. He misses, he looses his off stump. 130/7
Mohammad Irfan402726.75133021
2.6 to LRPL Taylor, this is a procession! Irfan's bounce is too hot to handle for Taylor here. It rises from just back of length and catches the shoulder of the bat as the batsman looks to turn it to the leg side.. big leading edge just lobs on the off side and the fielder from point jogs in a few steps to gobble this up. 15/3
18.4 to JDS Neesham, fuller, Neesham has to go.. He went after it but ended up slicing it to long off. Easy catch for Umar Akmal.. 128/6
Raza Hasan402416.00111110
15.4 to CJ Anderson, whoa! Anderson falls just short of the boundary and his half-century. It looked like one of those big ones the moment he went for the pull but the it started dipping near the boundary and the fielder at deep midwicket took a well-judged running catch on the edge, finishes it with a leap. 112/5
Mohammad Hafeez201507.5020100
Shahid Afridi402716.7593000
9.5 to MJ Guptill, we have seen it a million times before! The slider from Afridi goes through the gate. This one was slower through the air and Guptill was looking to drive it down the ground, but it sneaks in through the gap to hit the middle. Lala spreads his arms. 61/4

Mitchell McClenaghan402115.2592000
14.3 to Haris Sohail, whacked into the hands of midwicket! This was a slower delivery and Sohail spotted it early, he went after it but didn't get the elevation at it.. Straight into the hands of McCullum who doesn't flinch. 97/3
