5.3 to Fakhar Zaman, gets him at cover! Superb setting up of this wicket from New Zealand. It's a short ball in at his chest, rising sharply. He wants to pummel it over midwicket with a pull but he gets under it and slices into the off side instead. They gave him no room at all for any of his favourite strokes and after a bunch of yorkers, they get him with the first short ball. 29/1
Colin de Grandhomme4041210.2546010
16.1 to Babar Azam, slower ball, and he strikes first ball. Saw Babar looking to make a bit of room and followed him with a full, slow offcutter. Looks to hit it down the ground, but he has to manufacture all the power himself. Difficult to do with an outfield as big as this, and Tim Southee sprints in from the long-on boundary and takes a good, low catch. 123/2
18.4 to Shoaib Malik, fuller now, another slower one, and Malik swings hard and hits it maybe squarer than he intended. Down the throat of deep square leg. 154/3

Mohammad Hafeez20804.0040000
Faheem Ashraf20613.0091000
1.2 to C Munro, top of middle stump! 140kph and through Munro's ungainly swipe. It's a length ball, there for a leg side hit, but it needs a straighter bat than that. Munro has looked to go over midwicket and missed comprehensively. 4/1
Imad Wasim402827.0092110
13.5 to MS Chapman, cleverly done. This has gone up to the third umpire. Saw Chapman stepping out - he left his crease too early, and fired it down the leg side. Swung hard, in desperation, and missed, and Sarfraz does the rest, though he takes a bit of time moving down the leg side to collect. Chapman was a long way down the pitch, and there was no way he was getting back in time. 103/5
13.6 to TL Seifert, bowled him, this is stunning stuff from Pakistan's spinners. This is like the classic arm ball, which swings into the right-hander and skids off the track, imperilling anyone who deigns to play back to it. Tim Seifert goes back and across to cut, and he's taken by surprise by the direction and pace of that ball, and is late on the shot. Only manages to chop it onto his stumps with a bit of back pad along the way. 103/6
Usman Shinwari302408.0062100
Waqas Maqsood1.5021211.4534000
16.1 to LH Ferguson, and the birthday boy strikes! First T20I wicket for the debutant. Back of a length, slanting across the stumps, and Ferguson, making room and looking to guide it down to third man, only manages to edge it, and Sarfraz takes a good catch diving to his right. 113/9
16.5 to SHA Rance, bowled him, and Pakistan have wrapped up a 3-0 series win. Slower ball, fullish, with a bit of offcut taking it away from the right-hander and hitting off stump after Rance makes some room for the big hit down the ground but fails to make the requisite contact. Two wickets for the debutant Waqas Maqsood.. 119/10
Shadab Khan403037.5072100
12.2 to KS Williamson, gone! Big boundaries make limited-overs cricket so much more interesting. They allowed Shadab to bowl another over after his previous, expensive one, and they allowed him to flight this ball enticingly outside off stump. Williamson takes it on, but he can't clear the man at long-on. Hits it straight to the fielder. 96/3
12.4 to GD Phillips, bowled him, Shadab's turning it on here. Flat legbreak pitching on off stump and turning marginally away. Looks to work it through midwicket, plays too much across it, and only manages to bottom-edge it into his stumps. 97/4
14.6 to LRPL Taylor, is that a top edge? Sarfraz thinks so, and the umpire thinks so. Quickish outside off, more topspin than sidespin, and perhaps not enough room to cut. Taylor is one of the better cutters in the game, and he doesn't really need that much width, but on this occasion all he manages is a thick edge, which Sarfraz does very well to hold onto because it deviated quite sharply. 107/8
