1.4 to Haider Ali, sucked in by his own momentum and he's gone! Oh all those big hits, all that gung ho-ness. Pakistan want so desperately to win this powerplay. To completely dominate it. But this wasn't the ball. It's full. It's tailing in. New Zealand had bolstered the leg side, so Haider looks to open up and go over mid-off. He miscues it. And Williamson at mid-off takes a simple catch. 16/1
1.6 to Abdullah Shafique, straight up and it's taken by the bowler! A top edge to a half-hearted pull shot - half-hearted because Southee does not give him the room for such shenanigans. It's poor shot selection. it's born of Pakistan's need to whack NZ out of shape after the collapse in the first T20I. And it results in a second very very easy wicket.. 16/2
5.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, caught behind! His game is all about hard hands. His game is all in your face. Southee has sussed that up. He's also got the away swing working for him. So he pitches the ball up. He asks Rizwan to drive on the up. Rizwan does and nicks through to the keeper. Gorgeous bowling. Not so bright batting.. 33/3
17.5 to Faheem Ashraf, sliced it. Went high in the air and Williamson completes the easiest catch. Reckon even his newborn might have caught that. Faheem departs and Imad comes in. 133/6

8.2 to Shadab Khan, the short ball does him in! Shadab goes for the pull shot, but he doesn't have the swinging room. It's too close to his body. It's also rising on him. Gets the top half of the bat as he looks to heave ho and therefore no power in the shot. Simple catch to midwicket. 56/4
Ish Sodhi302117.0082100
15.6 to Khushdil Shah, and the wicket finally comes. It wasn't the best ball. Knee high full toss, but Khushdil's heave couldn't beat Guptill, who finally gets a catch this over. 119/5

3.3 to MJ Guptill, taken at deep square leg! The advantage of playing a decent sized ground. Even a batsman's big hit becomes a wicket. Ashraf goes short after being hit down the ground. Guptill loads up the front foot pull and picks out Rauf. 35/1
