Sohail Tanvir1007517.50249030
23.6 to MJ Guptill, succumbs to the left-armer's angle! Not enough room for the slice behind point and Guptill has to walk back, dare I say, a tad disappointed. Good bowling from Tanvir though as he hit a good length and pushed the ball across. The batsman tried to do too much with it and pays for his greed. 125/2
Mohammad Irfan1015325.30366020
36.3 to LRPL Taylor, nicks off! No feet from Taylor as he threw his hands at a fuller delivery outside off and the outside edge is fine enough for the wicketkeeper to control it. 188/3
49.6 to KS Williamson, bowled off the last ball of the innings. Good yorker from Irfan, and Williamson helped it out by exposing his stumps. in an effort to clip the ball to fine leg. 299/5
Anwar Ali905015.55245010
42.1 to CJ Anderson, taken at long-on! It was overpitched enough for him to go through with the loft down the ground, but it almost seemed like he'd checked the stroke. Only managed to pick out Akmal. 227/4
Shahid Afridi1004614.60293010
16.4 to DG Brownlie, caught at short midwicket! a soft dismissal for Brownlie as he went back back to a shortish ball and whipped it. Only he forgot to keep it down and Akmal dive forward and to his right to cling on to a good catch. Barely any celebration from Afridi. And drinks are on the field. 81/1

Matt Henry1006816.80284310
0.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, what a delivery! Off stump cartwheels as Henry opens Shehzad up! Speared the ball in at a very full length and it curls away late. Shehzad can't quite be blamed for being stuck on the crease against a ball like that. Pushes with his hands and next second, he hears timber!. 3/1
Adam Milne1023913.90373010
43.1 to Shahid Afridi, Milne has done the trick! The old back-away slash through point ends up as an outside edge to the keeper. What a rollicking innings it has been.. 238/6
Mitchell McClenaghan1006916.90216021
46.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, taken by Ronchi! Just about! Sarfraz is gone and it's a Mitch that turns a match again. Cross-seamed short ball that followed Sarfraz as he moved outside leg to make room for himself. Goes for a pull on instinct and top-edges it straight up. The rest was taken care of by an alert Ronchi. 261/8
Corey Anderson814015.00263100
12.4 to Nasir Jamshed, his footwork has been suspect all through the innings. He was relying solely on his balance and timing so far but this time he's misread an offcutter and has found himself plumb in front. Anderson knew straight away, had a giant grin all through the appeal as the ball gripped in the pitch and veered in at Jamshed to beat the inside edge and hit the back pad in front of all three stumps. 52/2
Daniel Vettori1005335.30303110
15.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, takes him out first ball! Hafeez keeps back to a good length ball and plays inside the line. He was looking for a push into the off side with an angled face and ends up nicking to the keeper. Good work form Ronchi. That will be drinks as well. 59/3
21.3 to Haris Sohail, goes down the track and lifts it down long-on's throat! The pressure tells on Sohail as he strikes the ball off the inside edge and gets too much height. Latham had run in a bit too enthusiastically and has to backtrack to get under the ball. 82/4
44.6 to Younis Khan, flat, full and straight. Vettori has toppled Younis and has coolly gone back to the umpire to collect his cap. Wild slog from Younis and he realised his mistake the moment he swung past the ball. 254/7
