Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Ahmed Shehzad, 4.5 ov), 2-20 (Azhar Ali, 5.1 ov), 3-154 (Mohammad Hafeez, 22.6 ov), 4-215 (Shoaib Malik, 31.1 ov), 5-227 (Babar Azam, 33.4 ov), 6-256 (Mohammad Rizwan, 38.4 ov), 7-279 (Wahab Riaz, 44.2 ov), 8-284 (Mohammad Amir, 45.3 ov), 9-284 (Rahat Ali, 45.5 ov), 10-290 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 47.3 ov)
4.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, what a sharp catch that is! Guptill at short midwicket! Shehzad swivelled on the back foot and pulled really well, making clean contact. The only thing he did wrong was hit it in the air towards short midwicket, where Guptill was waiting, crouched low. He took it so smoothly at shin height, though that ball was travelling quickly. 16/1
31.1 to Shoaib Malik, caught behind! Boult makes a vital breakthrough for NZ, Malik loves the cut and he tried to flay the ball behind point. Boult's length was good from over the wicket and his line angling across the right-hander was not wide enough, there was good bounce too. Ronchi took an easy catch. 215/4
5.1 to Azhar Ali, caught at second slip! The length was good and the line just outside off stump was great. The delivery just held its line a touch and Azhar's hard drive off the front foot resulted in a thick edge straight to Guptill once again, such safe hands. 20/2
33.4 to Babar Azam, he's cut the ball straight to point and Babar is so disappointed as he walks off! The ball was short of a length and there was width for the cut too, he just executed the placement poorly, hitting it straight to the fielder. Pakistan lose both set batsmen.. 227/5
44.2 to Wahab Riaz, Guptill is catching everything today! This time Wahab's pull against the short ball does not go over the keeper, it swirls in the air in the direction of midwicket and when it descends Guptill's safe hands are ready and waiting. That's his fourth catch. 279/7
22.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, the slog sweep and he has holed out to deep backward square leg! Santner pitched outside leg stump, Hafeez got down on one knee and swung hard, top edging it straight to Milne on the boundary!. 154/3
45.3 to Mohammad Amir, inside edge and caught behind! Maybe it was the pace of that previous ball but Amir was stuck in his crease as he poked tentatively at a good length delivery that sped through just outside off. It was the faintest of edges and an easy take for Ronchi. 284/8
45.5 to Rahat Ali, another caught behind! Milne's line and length at that speed is just too good for the tail. Rahat is rooted to his crease as he pushes away from his body and nicks to Ronchi. 284/9
47.3 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, well it's all over now, Pakistan don't even make 300. Sarfraz tries to pull a fast short ball and he ended up top edging it high in the air and to Ronchi, who takes his third catch off the speedy Milne.. 290/10

TOTAL42.4 Ov (RR: 6.21, 204 Mins)265/7
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Brendon McCullum, 1.1 ov), 2-165 (Martin Guptill, 26.2 ov), 3-180 (Kane Williamson, 28.3 ov), 4-188 (Henry Nicholls, 31.1 ov), 5-210 (Grant Elliott, 35.3 ov), 6-253 (Luke Ronchi, 40.6 ov), 7-256 (Corey Anderson, 41.3 ov)
41.3 to CJ Anderson, caught by Babar Azam running in from deep midwicket! Anderson was looking to level the scores with a mow over midwicket, but he had to drag the short ball from outside off stump, the bat turned in his hand and he sliced it high in the air. 256/7
1.1 to BB McCullum, McCullum's fallen first ball on his comeback! Amir bounced him from over the wicket and McCullum did not hold back, he hooked straightaway, but the ball went off the high part of the bat towards long leg where Irfan ran to his left to complete a sharp catch, he took that on the run. 6/1
31.1 to HM Nicholls, lbw! Amir follows the bouncer with a fuller and skiddy ball angling into the left-hander Nicholls who moves forward and across and is beaten on the inside edge as he tries to flick. Proper sucker punch that was. Would have hit middle stump. 188/4
40.6 to L Ronchi, bowled him! Wahab was full and straight, Ronchi cleared his front foot and swung hard across the line. A dirty slog. He missed and the ball crashed into the stumps at 146 kph. Too late for Pakistan?. 253/6
35.3 to GD Elliott, caught at point! Malik has one now! A really harmless ball, flat and short outside off. It was there to be cut and Elliott cut it straight to Babar at point, such a soft dismissal.. 210/5
26.2 to MJ Guptill, he's been caught this time! Guptill tries to repeat the shot, clearing his front foot and swinging hard at a full ball, trying to hit down the ground, he ends up slicing it as the bat turns in his hand, an easy catch to point. Threw away his wicket there really. 165/2
28.3 to KS Williamson, would you believe it? Azhar with his part-time legspin has got both set batsmen out! Williamson stepped out to the bowler but Azhar saw him coming and shortened the length, ripping the legbreak past Williamson, who was all at sea after not getting to the pitch of the ball. He barely made an attempt to get back as Sarfraz uprooted the stump, he was so far out. 180/3
