Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Ahmed Shehzad, 4.4 ov), 2-52 (Sohaib Maqsood, 6.1 ov), 3-78 (Shoaib Malik, 10.4 ov), 4-110 (Mohammad Hafeez, 14.5 ov), 5-146 (Umar Akmal, 16.5 ov), 6-147 (Shahid Afridi, 17.1 ov), 7-167 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 18.6 ov), 8-168 (Imad Wasim, 19.2 ov)
Matt Henry413117.75143220
19.2 to Imad Wasim, good short ball on middle stump, and Imad, moving away from his leg stump, is not in a stable position while trying to pull, and ends up slicing it to the cover fielder. 168/8
Trent Boult4042110.5086110
17.1 to Shahid Afridi, full on off stump and Afridi can't get elevation. Opens up a bit to try and lift it over the cover fielder, but he ends up hitting it straight to him instead. 147/6
Adam Milne403749.2582200
4.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, length ball, a bit wider outside off now, and Shehzad attempts the same shot he pulled off the previous ball, ends up picking out Elliott coming in off the rope at long-on. The line made him hit it straighter than he would have liked. 33/1
14.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, short again, angling into the body this time, and Hafeez hits picks out the square leg fielder with his pull. Seemed like a slightly slower delivery than the previous ones. Superb effort from Astle, diving to his right to take it over his shoulder. 110/4
16.5 to Umar Akmal, full outside off, too full to properly get under it, and Akmal goes hard at it, skews it in the air as his bat turns in his hand. and picks out the fielder at deep cover. 146/5
18.6 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, full on leg stump, follows Sarfraz looking to make himself room. It was the back-of-the-hand slower ball, and Sarfraz skews his attempted big hit down the ground, doesn't time it well at all, and Williamson runs to his right from mid-off and takes a good tumbling catch. 167/7
Corey Anderson1018018.0023100
Mitchell Santner401423.50110000
6.1 to Sohaib Maqsood, strikes first ball! Maqsood gave away his intentions too early, jumped down the pitch and Santner fired it in quicker and a touch shorter, beyond the batsman's reach. He swings across the line, and it turns away sharply, takes his outside edge, and the keeper completes a good catch and pulls off a stumping as well. 52/2
10.4 to Shoaib Malik, down the track and he doesn't reach the pitch this time, spins away and Malik, who wants to hit this over mid-on or over the bowler, ends up slicing it a bit and it drops down gently into long-off's hands. 78/3

Mohammad Amir403117.75104020
18.6 to MJ Henry, low full-toss outside off and Afridi takes a simple catch! Flat-batted straight to cover. 152/8
Imad Wasim401814.50111000
10.3 to CJ Anderson, and he's gone! length ball, stops on the batsman, and he checks the drive and pops it straight back to Imad. 90/3
Umar Gul403829.50103300
14.4 to MJ Santner, full, a bit of width outside off, and Afridi pulls off an absolute stunner! Santner looks to lift it inside-out, doesn't get the desired elevation, and Afridi takes a couple of steps back from cover, leaped up and backwards, and took a sensational overhead catch while turning around and landing on his elbow. 108/6
17.4 to TD Astle, yorker, and leg stump is dislodged. That was pinpoint, sneaks under Astle's bat as he jams down desperately to try and clip into the leg side. 138/7
Shahid Afridi412626.50111110
13.1 to GD Elliott, gone! Down the track, looking to make room, and Afridi bowled a wide googly. Reached out for the flat-bat drive and ended up dragging it into his stumps off the inside edge. 107/4
13.5 to L Ronchi, a bit slower this time and he's picked up another! Ronchi comes forward to drive, it grips and turns away from him, and he has to reach out for it, ends up popping a simple catch to the man at cover. 107/5
Wahab Riaz403438.50101300
9.6 to C Munro, bowled him! That was very full outside off, almost a yorker, and he jabbed at it with an angled bat looking to squeeze it through point, and all he could do was inside-edge it into his stumps. 89/2
19.1 to KS Williamson, gone! Williamson's long fight ends. Full on leg stump, looks to flick it over the backward square leg region, is a little too early into the shot, and he picks out the fielder at deep square leg. 152/9
19.6 to TA Boult, sees him backing away to make room, follows with the length ball at the body. Looks to hit inside-out, the ball hits high on his bat and he scoops a simple catch to cover, where Afridi settles under the ball. 155/10
