Mohammad Amir8.304124.82263100
43.6 to KD Mills, What a collapse! Short on the off, tried to slap it over mid-on, got it high on the bat and Ajmal ran a few paces to his left to pouch a straightforward chance. 198/9
46.3 to TG Southee, gone! Fullish, made room, picked it up but scooped it straight to midwicket to end the innings. 211/10
Umar Gul814715.87293220
11.3 to AJ Redmond, gone! Redmond is Gul's 100th ODI wicket, short of a length on the off, comes down the track and tries to slap it past the bowler, gets a top edge and it lands safely into the palms of Aamer at third man. 72/1
Abdul Razzaq301906.3362000
Saeed Ajmal1003343.30300000
16.3 to MJ Guptill, the doosra does the trick, played for the spin there, trying to work it through the leg side, got a leading edge as it went the other way and Younis Khan at mid-off did well running to his left and taking a testing chance. 88/2
38.3 to LRPL Taylor, trapped in front! Spun in sharply from a good length on the off stump, got forward and tried to turn it away towards midwicket, missed and was caught in line. Would have clipped leg stump. 187/5
40.3 to DL Vettori, the middle order is crumbling now, deceived by the quicker one. Round the wicket, hurls it flat and quick, opts to play from the crease into the leg side as it turns in, he misses and is caught right in front of middle. 190/7
42.3 to JDP Oram, Ajmal gets four! Short of a length on the off and drifts in towards middle, Oram is all the way back and misreads the line as he tries to work it into the leg side, is struck on the pads and the umpire had no hesitation. 194/8
Shahid Afridi1003313.30341030
39.4 to NT Broom, Caught in front! The googly does him in, shortish on the off and turned in sharply as he got all the way onto the back foot to whip it into the leg side, didn't pick it early and was caught high on the pads, would have gone on to hit middle and leg. 188/6
Shoaib Malik703214.57180110
26.3 to BB McCullum, tame dismissal, turns in just a hint from a good length on the off, tries to close the face while playing the attempted drive to long-on, ends up scooping it straight back to Malik who makes no mistake. 138/3

Kyle Mills1016216.20298010
16.6 to Shoaib Malik, Malik has been sent back! Tempted into playing the pull, it's a short one again, doesn't connect it well, miscues it straight into the hands of Styris waiting at deep square leg. 74/4
Shane Bond1014614.60365020
11.1 to Younis Khan, Younis goes! New Zealand have fought back, short of a good length on the off, just a hint of away movement, Younis moves back to defend, gets a thick outside edge and Taylor at a widish slip takes a good low catch diving to his left. 51/3
Daniel Vettori1024214.20443300
8.2 to Khalid Latif, it looked out, Vettori's struck immediately! Drifted in, landed on a good length on the off and angled in, he didn't get too forward while trying to play at it, missed and was caught right in front of middle. 47/1
Tim Southee1002622.60411000
19.5 to Umar Akmal, gone! Short and wide, goes for the cut, gets a thick edge and McCullum holds on to a straightforward chance. 82/5
21.2 to Kamran Akmal, An atrocious shot! Pakistan are being abysmal here, short on the off and he tries to swat that needlessly over mid-on, doesn't time it at all and finds Vettori,who accepts it gleefully. 86/7
Jacob Oram9.122032.18411011
20.4 to Shahid Afridi, gone, another one! Afridi's thrown it away, bowled on a good length outside off and he tries to whack it past the bowler, a hint of away movement produces a thick outside edge and McCullum snaps a dolly. 84/6
33.1 to Umar Gul, Gul departs, bowled it full on middle and leg, clipped it well but straight into the palms of Redmond at deep midwicket. 101/9
49.1 to Saeed Ajmal, New Zealand have won! Short on middle, goes for the pull, gets a top edge and Mills running in from fine leg takes a well-judged catch amid all the nerves and pressure. 204/10
