Ajaz Patel402716.75113100
3.1 to Sahibzada Farhan, and it works! First international wicket for the left-arm spinner. Farhan picks him up with the angle and goes for a big slog, and of all the vast spaces on the leg-side field, picks out deep square leg, hitting it straight into his hands. 10/2
Tim Southee403007.50132200
Adam Milne402827.00123110
2.2 to Babar Azam, swings at a short and wide ball, fails to get on top of the bounce which is more than he would've liked. Gets an outside edge for his troubles and settles straight into the gloves of the keeper. 8/1
11.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, short, and cut away. Tim Southee dives to his left, and pulls off a stunner. The umpires are conferring on this, and might refer to the TV umpire, but that was a super effort. Big wicket this, as Hafeez goes. 77/3
Colin de Grandhomme302418.0053010
14.2 to Asif Ali, magnificent from Glen Phillips, a wicketkeeper. Not easy running in from deep midwicket. This is a mistimed heave, no timing from Asif. This was dying on Phillips as he ran in, but he dived full length forward and plucked this close to the ground with his hands completely underneath the ball. Pakistan have been set back again, but I'm not too sure of the choice of shot there from Asif Ali.. 93/4
Ish Sodhi402416.0070110
17.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, straight up in the air. So high that Corey Anderson, running to his right from long-off, almost to where long-on is, covers enough ground and then puts in a dive to pull off a magnificent catch. Eyes were on the ball all the way, balance was superb, control even better as he ensured the ball didn't bobble out. Sarfraz was deceived in flight as he stepped out to slog, Sodhi saw him advance and bowled it just a touch wider, Sarfraz ended up dragging it a little and that resulted in complete lack of timing. Big wicket.. 121/5

Imad Wasim402616.50121200
12.4 to KS Williamson, chipped back to Imad. Williamson looked to nudge this into the leg side, but this ball dipped and spun to take the leading edge. Imad was slightly distracted by the non-striker but he got out of the way to make this an easy catch. Imad is pumped, this could be a big moment in the match. Is that the moment for Pakistan?. 84/3
Faheem Ashraf201507.5063000
Hasan Ali403538.7562100
5.6 to GD Phillips, tries to force another one through the off side but miscues it due to the lack of pace. Back of a length and back of the hand, throws out a flat bat and chops onto the stumps after making room. Hasan pumps his fists down and spreads the arms out wide for his trademark celebration. 50/1
18.1 to CJ Anderson, how far has he hit this? Not quite far, Malik takes an excellent catch running backwards at long-on. The ropes were just behind him and he was mindful of that. Held his balance very nicely to complete the catch. Anderson was deep inside the crease to manufacture the length, couldn't quite get underneath and hit this straight to the fielder.. 123/5
18.6 to TL Seifert, swings, misses and hears the stumps rattle. Hasan bowls full, straight, gets this to veer in late and beat the swing to hit the middle of middle. Hint of reverse? Whatever, he's done the trick.. 132/6
Mohammad Hafeez301304.33101000
Shadab Khan402616.5082000
11.3 to C Munro, what have you done, Colin? Tossed up, he couldn't believe it and went after it. Didn't get it off the middle as the bat face turned and he ended up chipping it straight to long-on.. 79/2
