Anwar Ali201306.5081110
Sohail Tanvir403017.5073000
17.6 to L Ronchi, this should put a smile on Tanvir's face. He's forced a false shot from Ronchi, who has a short ball rise on him and take the splice of his bat while he was trying to pull. Shehzad is under a skier at long-on and takes it quite well. 127/6
Umar Gul402426.00123010
16.4 to TWM Latham, runs down and tries to belt a full and wide delivery over mid-off, but holes out to the man. Gul, returning from injury, is among the wickets as well. Got it off the bottom of the bat and there was no power into the shot. 116/5
18.3 to DL Vettori, moves across to the off side this time to try and whip the ball to fine leg and allows a clear line of sight to the stumps for Gul, who says thank you very much. 127/7
Raza Hasan402416.0093000
12.5 to LRPL Taylor, sweep goes wrong and Hasan is overjoyed as he traps Taylor in front! It was fuller and quicker on middle, the batsman sought to hit across the line and pays for his mistake. 78/4
Mohammad Hafeez2020110.0012000
6.6 to AP Devcich, timberrr! It's a quicker delivery, with barely any spin. Devicich was hoping for some as he backed away and went for a cut through the covers. The ball though skids on and strikes middle. Hafeez and left-handers, the story continues. 49/1
Shahid Afridi403328.25110240
7.3 to DG Brownlie, got him, says the star man! It was pushed through fuller on middle and leg and Brownlie was stuck in the crease while trying to play around it. There was a hint of doubt about the ball heading down leg, but the batsman did not help himself with his choice of shot. 50/2
9.6 to KS Williamson, through him, star man shines! Williamson has been very adept in picking his shots and which foot to play off of. But this time he is stuck in the crease and is beaten for pace as Afridi skittles through his defences. 58/3

Anton Devcich401624.0090000
0.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, this time the finger goes up! Maiden wicket for Devcich and Sarfraz fails. It was full and flat and beat Sarfraz for pace as he went for another sweep. Struck low enough on the pads, but with the angle in at the batsman, this seemed to hint at going down leg... Brownlie got a poor one in the NZ innings, and Sarfraz gets a worse one. HawkEye says it would have missed by a stump and a half!. 2/1
2.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, He's got another one! New Zealand are making a match out of this! Seemed an innocuous length ball on off stump, to which Hafeez got back to try and force through the off side. But it held on the pitch and with the batsman using hard hands, simply popped back into the hands of Devcich. 18/2
Matt Henry20914.5092000
4.4 to Haris Sohail, he was eyeing that leg side, he was getting anxious for quick runs and that pressure has got to him. Thinks he's got a length ball and tries to slog across the line. Only manages to get the toe of the bat and hand a simple catch to deep square leg. 24/3
Kyle Mills3.502636.78102110
16.5 to Anwar Ali, lifts it straight up, and he's been caught by Williamson. What a stunner! Another slower ball has brought about a useful strike, but this was all the captain's doing. He raced back from mid-off, threw his hands over his head and safely held it with a reverse cup. 104/7
18.3 to Umar Gul, he's picked up a short of a length ball and launched it.... straight down the throat of deep midwicket. New Zealand are pulling off another stunning fighback in the UAE. 122/9
18.5 to Sohail Tanvir, that's shot straight up in the air, and it's that man Devcich who gets under it! New Zealand have levelled the series with a very cleverly executing bowling performance. It was back of a length and outside off to tempt a swat from Tanvir, and his bat face turns on impact to sky a catch to long-off. 127/10
Nathan McCullum301605.3350000
Daniel Vettori302819.3361201
14.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, another strike, and that rising run-rate has contributed to Shehzad's downfall. Opted for a huge slog sweep to a delivery that was too full and was sliding on. Once he missed there was one place it was heading. 74/5
James Neesham302538.3362120
11.4 to Saad Nasim, picks out cover! Another seemingly innocuous delivery on off stump, inviting the drive. Nasim went for it and was trying to lift the ball over the infield but only ends up offering a simple catch. 64/4
15.5 to Umar Akmal, middle stump has been knocked off it's perch! Fires in a fast, fuller delivery - a cross-seamer - that Akmal opted to run at and cream away through the covers. He misses and Neesham hits. 97/6
17.6 to Shahid Afridi, banged in short as Afridi goes for a pull and there is a nick! Afridi is bemused, actually he's confused. He can't believe he's out. But there was a feather edge. Brilliant short ball from Neesham as he gets it to skid off the deck and rise too far for Afridi to control his shot.. 121/8
