Umar Gul2438423.5010510210
30.2 to BB McCullum, that's the end of McCullum, goes for another big hit, short and wide from Gul, McCullum slices that straight to Azhar Ali at deep backward point, the smiles are back on Pakistan faces, McCullum is disgusted with himself, there was a big score for the taking here. 92/2
90.3 to TG Southee, Gul takes out Soutee first ball! Fabulous bouncer. Really well-directed short stuff, rearing up at the head, and Southee took his eyes off the ball, and put up his bat as a shield. The ball flew of the glove and popped up to second slip. Gone! A wicket in the first over of the day.. 261/8
Tanvir Ahmed18.526343.348511000
1.5 to TG McIntosh, Pakistan have struck, McIntosh has flopped, a back of length ball on offstump, McIntosh prods at it, gets the outside edge, flies low to Younis at second slip, he pouches that one, and Pakistan are celebrating. 9/1
64.5 to DL Vettori, lbw! That is as easy as it gets for an umpire. Tanvir Ahmed bowls a yorker that is dead straight. Vettori moves across his crease and tries to work it on the leg side by closing the face of the bat. He misses and gets hit flush on the boot in front of middle stump. Out.. 177/7
95.6 to KS Williamson, The bouncer does in Kane! He shuffled across, hopped back, and tried to stab it the on side for a single and retain the strike. But he ended up getting in a tangle and only succeeded in top edging it behind the wicket. Kane falls after a nice knock. Enter Phantom. On 97.. 274/9
97.5 to BJ Arnel, And Martin will remain on 97. Once again, his team-mates have ditched him. It was the shortish delivery, from round the stumps, Arnel top-edged the pull to mid-on.. 275/10

Younis Khan612003.33273000
Abdur Rehman30135131.701535100
37.5 to LRPL Taylor, Rehman's figures look a lot better now, he removes Ross Taylor, slightly short and a bit wide, Taylor rocks back for the cut, gets a thin top edge to the keeper, Adnan pouches that, umpire has little doubt there's an edge, and Taylor's on his way. Misbah will be feeling a lot better about the decision to bowl now.. 99/3
55.2 to MJ Guptill, oh dear, what a soft, soft dismissal, all that grinding-it-out business and then throws it away to perhaps the worst ball of the day, a high full toss outside off, Guptill could have dispatched that where he liked, he dispatches it only as far as the cover fielder, another freebie for Pakistan. 158/5
63.5 to RA Young, lbw! The sweep is Reece's downfall. He planted his front foot a long way down to a quicker one from Rehman and missed the sweep, the ball hit his front pad in line of off stump and Harper thought it was going straight through. Reece was a fair way forward though.. 176/6

Chris Martin25.178633.4112518012
0.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, What a catch! It was a full-length delivery outside off stump and Hafeez goes for the drive.but he went inside the line and the ball flew very low to the right of second slip. McIntosh swooped to his side, got both hands to it and took it inches of the turf.. 0/1
22.2 to Azhar Ali, Got him! Martin, who has been bowling a full so far, changed his length: He hit a short-of-length and got it to bounce and straighten just outside off. Azhar Ali was caught at the crease and had a lame poke. Fatal. Edge and gone!. 72/2
122.1 to Tanvir Ahmed, full on off and Tanvir heaves it away into the leg side but only as far as mid-on to pick up, according to Simon Doull, his 500th first-class wicket as Pakistan are bowled out for 367 with a lead of 92. 367/10
Tim Southee32108222.5615714000
90.6 to Asad Shafiq, just as he was looking good to go on for a big score, Shafiq departs. it was on middle and struck him on middle and leg as he looked to work it away, Daryl Harper deliberated before sending him on his way, at first glance it looked high though and possibly going down leg. 256/5
114.3 to Adnan Akmal, there's the breakthrough for the home side! It was full outside off and Adnan went for the drive but wasn't to the pitch of it, it flew off the bat to the left of Ryder at gully who flew to his left to pluck it low, good catch to end a good innings by Adnan. 332/7
Brent Arnel2869543.3913016100
29.6 to Taufeeq Umar, Soft dismissal! The change in angle works. From over the wicket now, it was a full-length delivery on the leg stump line but Taufeeq flicks it midwicket. Tame end to a promising innings. You got to say he has thrown his wicket away.. 104/3
31.3 to Younis Khan, Another one down. It was full in length on the leg and middle line. Younis must have thought chalo, that's a four past square-leg and went for the flick. The ball was drifting down the angle, but he fell over a bit on that front foot- the balance went awry, and he got a leading edge. a dolly back to the bowler. All of a sudden, NZ have roared back into the game.. 107/4
91.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, gone! two in two for New Zealand! nipped back in from outside off and struck Misbah on the back leg, would have been going on to knock the stumps out, Pakistan lose their two established players. 256/6
115.2 to Abdur Rehman, Arnel achieves career-best figures with a short ball on off which Rehman looks to force off the back foot throught the covers, but he simply hasn't got the room to play that shot and can only get a thick inside edge which crashes into the stumps, good tail-end resistance from Rehman though but for the second time today Pakistan lose their two set batsmen within cooee of each other. 332/8
Daniel Vettori29124811.651504201
119.2 to Umar Gul, Vettori exhibits his mastery of his craft, it was flighted but it went straight on l ike an arm ball wouldand struck him in front of off, that was crashing into middle stump. 365/9

Umar Gul8.332833.29394001
32.1 to TG Southee, can they finish it off tonight? Another question to be asked as Southee tries to line up another boundary to the long-off fence but he can't clear the hands of a leaping mid-on. 90/8
34.4 to RA Young, goes for the pull again but this one was a lot further outside off and he never tried to keep it down, slicing it down deep backward square's throat, the end is nigh surely. 96/9
38.3 to CS Martin, New Zealand bowled out as Martin's heroic innings is ended. Gul targeted the head and Martin tried to fend it away but it hit the top of the bat and popped up nicely for a slipper to pouch. 110/10
Tanvir Ahmed412005.00163001
Abdur Rehman1562431.60762000
11.6 to TG McIntosh, Rehman has completely bamboozled McIntosh with a peach, tossed it up wider of off but the key was that he held back the length, McIntosh came down the wicket and ended up trying to defend but missed it and Adnan took the bails off with Timmy Mac out by a mile, his rather painful innings ends. 36/1
21.2 to MJ Guptill, oh dear, dear oh dear, a complete brain explosion from Guptill who was battling hard, tossed up on middle and Guptill, who had been cautious until now against Rehman as well as in the first dig, inexplicably went for a slog sweep to a very full ball and got a thick top-edge which was comfortably settled under by square leg. Pakistan very much in control. 60/3
27.1 to DL Vettori, this is surely it for the home side and the only questions now must be whether they can avoid an innings defeat and whether Chris Martin can reach his Test century of runs. Superb bowling from Rehman, it was outside off and landed in the footmarks and fizzed and spat back with venom to strike Vettori in front of middle, I suppose this continues New Zealand's trend of astonishing batting collapses against Pakistan. 71/7
Wahab Riaz1113833.45495003
16.3 to BB McCullum, gone! and what a way to go for McCullum! it was a short ball down the leg side which strangled him and it clipped his thigh pad on the way to Adnan, but Rod Tucker raised the finger super fast. Ironic given how the opposite thing occurred in the first innings- there a similar ball hit his glove but he was given not out. The game of cricket goes in a very quick roundabout for McCullum. An important blow for Pakistan who have the dangerman. 44/2
22.1 to JD Ryder, golden duck for Jesse Ryder! A superb delivery which tailed back in late and fast to strike him on the foot on the full dead in front. He was light years behind it, Tucker gave him out but quickly checked upstairs about the no-ball. It wasn't and Ryder goes as New Zealand slide further into the mire. 60/4
24.3 to KS Williamson, another one goes! New Zealand have lost four wickets for ONE run! it was a good length ball which pitched outside leg, it initially appeared to strike him on the pad but the lbw appeal was turned down. However, the ball looped up to second slip who took it and claimed a catch, basically a new appeal for a catch. The umpires chose to go upstairs to check this and after many inconclusive HotSpot replays, a slow-motion replay showed an inside edge that careered into the pad and ballooned up for the fielder. Williamson goes and New Zealand are just about dead and buried. 61/6
