Tim Southee804435.50284210
2.3 to Faheem Ashraf, the experiment fails. He goes for the cut again, when there possibly isn't enough room. Worse, Southee gets the ball to kick up off the pitch, piggyback off the top edge and settle in the wicketkeeper's gloves. Pakistan one-down early. Hmmm, haven't we been here before?. 7/1
4.4 to Babar Azam, throws it away! The width triggers the shot. That's the first thing Babar sees but the ball gets up to a bit of mischief about three-fourth the way down. It swings away. Well enough to beat the middle, snap the edge. Latham with his second catch, Southee with his second wicket. 11/2
48.4 to Hasan Ali, gets down the track and slogs it only as far as deep midwicket. The shot comes off the bottom of the bat and Southee's slower ball works the trick. 233/7
Trent Boult1007317.30325520
47.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, taken at point! And Sarfraz swinging across the line, with the left-armer angling the ball across him, with an offcutter to boot, is forced to walk back to the hut. He's played a grand little innings though. He's got Pakistan closer to a total that his bowling attack can work with.. 228/6
Lockie Ferguson603205.33224110
Colin de Grandhomme301605.33113000
Kane Williamson1003223.20321000
30.1 to Haris Sohail, ah, that's got to be frustrating. Haris Sohail sees the gap between the long-off and deep cover region and chips this length ball in the air after taking a stride forward. Just that he doesn't pick the gap well enough. Despite all the vast spaces in the outfield he hits it close enough for the sweeper to move to his left and snaffle it. 123/4
32.2 to Shoaib Malik, ah, he's holed out to long-on. Seemed like a clean hit for most of it. Malik came down the track but perhaps didn't just get the room he was looking for. Goes through with the shot and the bat closes in his hands as he completes the swing. Goes really high in the air and long-on snaffles it right at the edge of the boundary. Didn't have to move an inch. Another wicket for Williamson. What a day he's having1. 130/5
Mitchell Santner1004314.30372230
23.1 to Fakhar Zaman, Fakhar Zaman has thrown away all his good work. Jeez, this is how you commit hara-kiri. Simply charges down the track and swipes despite the ball having been delivered on a leg-stumpish line. He's completely choked for room and cannot make any contact. The ball sneaks between inside edge and pad to clatter into leg-stump. Is that a new variation from Santner? A carrom ball that's been flicked off the middle finger and goes the other way. 97/3

Hasan Ali8.506006.79259030
Faheem Ashraf603305.50183100
Rumman Raees905916.55257100
16.2 to LRPL Taylor, a failure for Taylor in his 200th ODI. Walks across and pays the price for playing against the line. Tries to flick but the length ball cuts into him and hits him dead in front of middle and leg. Game on in Hamilton. 90/3
Shadab Khan1004234.20312100
13.6 to C Munro, what the fast bowlers couldn't do the spinner has done in his first over. Shadab is charged up and mutters something after exulting. Munto skews a slog off the splice and the ball goes in the air before settling into the hands of deep backward square leg. 88/1
15.1 to MJ Guptill, oh, Shadab! He's brought Pakistan right back into the contest. The googly from the leggie, Guptill picks it and whacks it with the turn. But he is probably a little tucked up and doesn't find the timing he would have liked. Launches into the hands of long-on. Pakistan have an opening and they need to seize it. 89/2
19.4 to TWM Latham, got im! The cut is one of Latham's strengths and he makes room upon seeing a short ball on fourth stump. He believes this is a legbreak ripe for the cut. Problem is, it doesn't turn as much as he expects and bounces a little too much to boot. The ball takes the edge and goes to the left of slip where Azam takes a very sharp catch.. 99/4
Haris Sohail602914.83180200
34.6 to KS Williamson, what a strike! And what a catch! Williamson, having played one of his more cautious innings, goes for a slog, looking to clear long-on, when there is a long-on. Rumman Raees positions himself at the edge of the boundary - literally inches away from it - then leans back to take the ball with both hands above his head. Superb composure under immense pressure. The third umpire is called in to check if everything is legal, and it is. 154/5
