4.3 to Imran Nazir, bowled'im! Excellent length, targeting the blockhole and it works, on middle and leg, slightly slower, bowled at 127 kmph, Nazir, in his attempt to dig it out, was too early into his shot, missed it and heard the death rattle. 40/1
6.5 to Kamran Akmal, it doesn't matter! He's trapped Kamran in front with a full delivery on off and middle, bends low, gets across to paddle it fine, misses, is struck on the pads and the umpire has no hesitation, was plumb. 51/2
14.4 to Shoaib Malik, he's skied it, bowled it full on the off, came down the track and tried to launch him over long-off, miscued it and Styris running in from deep extra cover held on to an excellent catch. 114/4
James Franklin302618.6672101
15.1 to Abdul Razzaq, he strikes! Full outside off from round the wicket, Razzaq goes for a booming drive through the covers, ends up getting a thick edge to the keeper, gone first ball. 114/5
Scott Styris201909.5060220
Nathan McCullum301615.3361000
12.1 to Shahid Afridi, ..or have I jinxed it? Gave it a bit of air, bowled it full on leg, Afridi went for the slog-sweep, the shot was on but couldn't connect it well, struck it straight into the palms of Bond waiting at deep midwicket. 96/3

Mohammad Amir403308.2594100
Sohail Tanvir301414.66111030
3.3 to BJ Watling, brilliantly taken, identical to his catch off Guptill yesterday, a superb delivery, landed on a good length on middle and moved away, tried to defend it on the front foot, the movement produced the outside edge and Kamran, stretched to his right to pluck it one-handed and tumbled to pull off a blinder. 20/1
Umar Gul402927.2580200
8.1 to MJ Guptill, Guptill's not one of them, short of a length outside off, nipped back in a touch, tried to chop it down towards third man, got an inside edge onto the stumps. 46/2
19.6 to SB Styris, Malik snaps it at long-on, Styris made room and tried to launch that length delivery over long-on, found Malik at long-off who was waiting for that mistimed attempt and took it comfortably while preventing a collision with the man running in from long-on. 146/5
Saeed Ajmal402416.00111100
18.2 to BB McCullum, charges down the track, it's slower through the air, he had given it a bit of air to induce him into doing that, skied it and Malik, at long-on, judged it to perfection. 132/4
Shahid Afridi302117.0062000
10.6 to LRPL Taylor, hurled it quick and flat on the off and it's angling in, Taylor bends low and tries to execute his most favoured slog-sweep, misses and is caught plumb in front of middle and off. 66/3
