Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Glenn Phillips, 5.5 ov), 2-56 (Colin Munro, 6.6 ov), 3-67 (Colin de Grandhomme, 9.4 ov), 4-83 (Ross Taylor, 12.4 ov), 5-125 (Kane Williamson, 17.1 ov), 6-148 (Tim Seifert, 19.2 ov), 7-149 (Tim Southee, 19.4 ov)
9.4 to C de Grandhomme, De Grandhomme holes out to long-on. Malik dives to his left and hangs on. De Grandhomme steps down the track, Imad holds this one back and gets it to turn away from the batsman. He aims to clear the boundary, instead skews it off the bottom to long-on. The spinners are squeezing NZ again. 67/3
6.6 to C Munro, Munro follows Phillips. Two in two overs for Pakistan. Munro ventures down the track, Hafeez shortens his length and keeps following the moving batsman. Munro swings and inside-edges it behind, he's too far down. Sarfraz collects the ball this time and whips the bails off. Munro gone for 44 off 28. It was good fun while it lasted. 56/2
5.5 to GD Phillips, Has Phillips nicked behind? Sarfraz is confident that he has his man. And up goes the finger. In-between length, angling away from over the stumps, Phillips wants to flick it - maybe towards midwicket - but inside-edges it behind to the keeper. Afridi hands Pakistan a much-needed breakthrough; although it's not the man they wanted. 50/1
17.1 to KS Williamson, oooh, he's clipped a leg-stump half-volley straight to deep backward square leg. The intention is to get a couple of runs, but Williamson ends up timing the ball too well. Oh the irony. He's had to struggle to connect with the ball all innings, but persevered ever so well until now, only to get out to a shot he ends up hitting better than he even wanted to. 125/5
19.2 to TL Seifert, taken at long-on! Looks a million bucks with the freaky shots but when he has to hit down the ground, he doesn't get enough power. Slower ball does Seifert in as he makes contact with only the toe-end and is caught at long-on. 148/6

TOTAL19.4 Ov (RR: 7.83)154/4
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Fakhar Zaman, 4.4 ov), 2-96 (Babar Azam, 12.6 ov), 3-114 (Asif Ali, 15.6 ov), 4-148 (Shoaib Malik, 19.2 ov)
12.6 to Babar Azam, taken at mid-off! It's the change of pace again, with Babar looking to hit drive on the up and clear the infield. Not enough on the ball to take it that far though. New Zealand have a sniff. Just a tiny sniff. 96/2
4.4 to Fakhar Zaman, Kane Williamson, you beauty! He throws himself to his left from mid-off and completes a one-hander, inches from the ground. What a play. Milne fires it very full on middle, 147ks, Zaman backs away outside leg, does not get underneath the length. The bat twists in his hands as he scoops a low catch. That it was a catch was down to Williamson's athletic intervention at mid-off. The NZ skip barely celebrates Cool cat. Zaman is stunned. 40/1
19.2 to Shoaib Malik, taken at deep midwicket! Ooof, and it comes off a full toss too! Malik looks to end the game in one shot, but this is a big ground and he can't clear it.. 148/4
15.6 to Asif Ali, lbw to a full toss from round the stumps! The change of angle is fair, an effort to cramp the right-hander, which is fair, but the execution just goes for a toss. Even so, Asif, set up to pull the ball, misses completely and gets hit on the back leg right in front of middle stump. That's ridiculous cricket from all parties involved. 114/3
