Seth Rance402636.50141210
2.2 to Umar Amin, lovely catch from Kitchen again. Well done, much harder than the Taylor catch, but he keeps his eyes on the ball, tracks it through almost every point of its trajectory. Full delivery on off, angling away, a thick leading edge is found because of that extra bounce again. Lobs up over point, but Kitchen runs back, keeps his eyes on the ball, and with his back to the pitch, he takes a watchful catch. Well done. The second Pakistan batsman to fail to adapt to extra bounce.. 4/2
16.4 to Hasan Ali, full delivery outside off, 138 kph, slightly wider this time than the previous two and Hasan swings again, but the ball takes a leading edge and gets so much elevation. Southee runs a few metres from his cover position, gets underneath the catch and takes it. A bright cameo. 83/8
18.4 to Mohammad Amir, Rance and Southee combine again. Digs this one in, around off, Amir backs away, the ball gets too big on him and all he can do is mis-time a forehand pull over the bowler's head. Southee gets across from mid-off. 90/9
Tim Southee401333.25150010
1.3 to Fakhar Zaman, 134 kph, that's the way Zaman plays, I Guess. A full delivery on off, Zaman clears his front leg, looking to swat another wild drive over mid-off, but the ball skews off the outside half to cover. Just popped up. Undone by extra bounce, that's the first batsman to fail to adapt to extra bounce despite a chance. 4/1
3.5 to Mohammad Nawaz, 135 kph, too many shots from Pakistan. To be fair, it was in the slot. Full and straight, a hint of inward movement. Nawaz clears his front leg and swings, but that movement takes it to the inside half of the bat, as opposed to the middle. Just chipped to mid-on. 15/3
13.5 to Faheem Ashraf, 132 kph, hurried for pace and Pakistan slump further. Shortish delivery outside off, Faheem is too late through the pull, harried into his shot, and all he can do is spoon a catch to short cover. Spliced away.. 53/7
Colin de Grandhomme201105.5051000
Anaru Kitchen10313.0030000
5.4 to Haris Sohail, 87 kph, straight to short cover. Pakistan 22 for 4. Lots of flight, drops late, but ends up being overpitched, and that's the invitation Haris wanted, gets forward and drives the ball straight to the fielder. Wanted to go over the infield, but got too close to the ball eventually.. 22/4
Ish Sodhi402506.25101110
Mitchell Santner401523.75100000
9.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, slips over, over-balances and Sarfraz is stumped! Slow through the air outside off, Sarfraz looks to sweep but there is some extra bounce. As he plays the sweep, his front foot slides and his back foot slides in the opposite direction, leaving him showing off his agility with the splits. The keeper takes off the bails quickly, much to Pakistan's misery.. 38/5
9.2 to Shadab Khan, edged and taken! A golden duck for Shadab. Lots of flight from Santner, draws Shadab forward with a loopy delivery, Shadab comes forward, drives and gets a thick outside edge. Phillips juggles and juggles and juggles again but the ball is high enough, he doesn't panic much and takes the catch!. 38/6
Colin Munro0.4012118.0011100
19.4 to Babar Azam, six and out, and Pakistan are all out for 105! Another slower delivery on middle and leg, Azam cannot time his lofted drive and can only chip the catch to long-on. 105/10

Rumman Raees402426.00122110
1.1 to MJ Guptill, that's caught! Back of a length delivery, angled across. Guptill chooses to pull but the ball moves away and bounces extra, which means the choice to pull isn't the greatest, lobs up off the splice towards mid-on. Taken tentatively, but taken!. 3/1
3.2 to GD Phillips, chopped on and Raees strikes again. Shortish delivery again, some extra bounce too but Phillips plays over the line, gets a thick inside edge which hits off stump. That was a stuttering, stumbling innings with no fluency. 8/2
Shadab Khan401814.50151100
10.1 to TC Bruce, Bruce holes out. Some flight outside off, Bruce has to drag his slog sweep and the ball is turning away further, so he can't time or get enough power behind it. Deep midwicket takes a good catch on the boundary. 57/3
