A Patel to Abbas, Not out! There is absolutely nothing on Ultra-Edge. The ball is a brilliant one though! It lands on middle, grips and turns to beat the outside edge of Abbas who was half ahead in defense. Watling and the close-in fielders go up in a huge appeal as Bruce Oxenford shakes his head. The NZ fielders are convinced and ask Williamson to go upstairs. The replays confirm the original decision and that's a lost review for the Black Caps. Drama! Pakistan are trying to do it one run per over here.

IS THAT THE END OF THE MATCH? Abbas has been given not out on a caught behind appeal. New Zealand have taken the review....

A Patel to Ali, OUT! Yesterday's hero could be today's villain! Hasan Ali, what have you done? No need for him to play this shot at this moment, the ball was flighted outside off and Hasan's eyes lit up on seeing it. He goes for a huge slog over mid-wicket but fails to connect fully. The ball hits the top half of the bat and goes to Tim Southee, who is on as a substitute fielder in place of Ross Taylor. Really good catch under pressure as the ball was high in the air and would've been a difficult catch in the sun. 12 required now and only 1 wicket left.
