Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Abdullah Shafique, 1.4 ov), 2-20 (Mohammad Rizwan, 3.5 ov), 3-20 (Mohammad Hafeez, 3.6 ov), 4-20 (Haider Ali, 4.1 ov), 5-39 (Khushdil Shah, 8.2 ov), 6-79 (Imad Wasim, 13.4 ov), 7-114 (Shadab Khan, 17.1 ov), 8-136 (Wahab Riaz, 18.3 ov), 9-149 (Faheem Ashraf, 19.3 ov)
1.4 to Abdullah Shafique, taken at mid-on! Duffy strikes in his first over!. Comes off the pitch just a little slower than he expects, but just the tiniest bit of extra bounce! And as a result, the flick shot, that he means to hit more or less along the ground through midwicket, pops up in the air much much straighter. Great start for the rookie!. 8/1
3.5 to Mohammad Rizwan, taken by one of two short covers! Oh this is great bowling. This is a sign of a domestic player in top form. Duffy captains Otago. He's been around for years and years. And the moment he sees a batsman charging at him, he drags his line wide, hiding the ball from his reach. Rizwan still tries to reach for the ball and only toe-ends it to the straighter fielder Phillips. 20/2
3.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, taken at mid-on! Eish! He's skittish against the bounce. But he goes for the pull nonetheless. The fact that he hasn't put everything into the shot is apparent in how the ball floats down the ground. Terrible mis-hit. Comes off almost the splice of the bat. And is easily taken by a backtracking Chapman. 20/3
17.1 to Shadab Khan, Sodhi makes amends! What a superb catch that is, and Duffy's fantasy evening continues! It wasn't the best delivery, in truth, down leg side from around the wicket. But Shadab got a top edge that hovered in the atmosphere around the man at 45. Sodhi had to run backwards and put in the dive, but he got the job done. Lethal blow to the solar plexus of Pakistan's hopes. 114/7
4.1 to Haider Ali, Extra bounce! Extra bounce!They can't handle the extra bounce! Haider is looking to whip a back of a length ball through the leg side. But in addition to the ball coming up at a height he doesn't expect, it also doesn't come on to his bat. All of that means he gets a leading edge which the bowler himself runs up and takes. Spectacular spell of bowling by New Zealand. They really are very good at understanding conditions and exploiting them at double quick time.. 20/4
13.4 to Imad Wasim, and that's broken the partnership! You can see what he's trying to do but that's still a soft, soft way to end the innings. Short and wide, and Imad tried to help it above the third man fielder for six. Instead gives him the easiest catch he might have wished for. 79/6
18.3 to Wahab Riaz, and finally Wahab's luck runs outHe'd been swinging, as they say, like a rusty gate, and this time a thick edge carries down to long-ff for a straightforward catch. Kuggeleijn gets his third. 136/8
8.2 to Khushdil Shah, taken at point! Oh, the best of them is gone now. And once again, it's the result of an ill-advised shot. The square boundaries at Eden Park are big (enough). That's why Sodhi keeps bowling short and spinning the ball away from the left-hander. Here he ventures a little fuller, specifically to draw the false shot. And he does. A slog sweep to a ball outside off stump. Shah can't drag it and only gets an edge that goes straight up and comes down to settle safely in Guptill's hands. 39/5
19.3 to Faheem Ashraf, and Guptill finally gets rid of Faheem on the boundary! That looked for all the world as if it was sailing over for six, but that's the longest boundary and Guptill was perched right on the edge. Wobbled out of his hands, but gets it safely on the second attempt. 149/9

TOTAL18.5 Ov (RR: 8.28, 94 Mins)156/5
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Martin Guptill, 2.1 ov), 2-21 (Devon Conway, 3.3 ov), 3-65 (Glenn Phillips, 9.1 ov), 4-110 (Tim Seifert, 14.4 ov), 5-129 (Mark Chapman, 16.2 ov)
2.1 to MJ Guptill, oooh hooo hooo. This is a supremely good catch. This is Shadab Khan at his absolute, shining, pristine, beautiful best! Running back from mid-off at FULL speed. Tracking a big hit down the ground - that when they come off Martin Guptill's bat usually go for six - but Shadab doesn't let up. He keeps his eyes on it - which is so hard because he has to look over his left shoulder. He realises it might beat him at the last minute and so dives headlong after the ball, reaching out both hands, and he takes it so very cleanly. Such a difficult catch and he made it look as if it was destined to be out. Pakistan have their early wicket. They become a far more terrifying bowling side now.. 8/1
14.4 to TL Seifert, Shaheen strikes. The big wicket of Seifert! You wondered if it was better to just see off Shaheen, but Seifert was done by the slower pace and went through the shot early. Faheem Ashraf completes a smart catch running back to the boundary. 110/4
3.3 to DP Conway, Not for long, he's got him this time! That was soft. Played it straight back to the bowler, who completes a smart catch in his follow through. Pakistan flying. 21/2
9.1 to GD Phillips, taken at deep midwicket. That's the long boundary. He's hit it cleanly. He's hit it high. He's looking for six. But as much timing as he gets, he still can't beat Shah. A cross-seam ball from Rauf, hitting a good length on middle and off stump, works the treat.. 65/3
16.2 to MS Chapman, full toss smashes into the from pad, and it's given! New Zealand review, but Chapman will be lucky to survive that. Yep, hit him in line, which was the only question, and Chapman's on his way. 129/5
