4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, better shot! Very full and around middle, Ali is enjoying this because there isn't any swing so far. Flicked nicely through backward square leg. Finds the gap

W

to Azhar Ali, out Lbw!! Got him! I spoke too soon when I said wasn't getting swing. This one does tail in a touch and it wasn't as full as the previous two deliveries, Azhar Ali fell across a bit on the flick, thereby getting pinged flush on the pads below the knee roll. Looked quite good to the naked eye and was given by the umpire. Azhar challenged the call after a chat with Fakhar Zaman but the moment replays confirmed that he hadn't hit it, the writing was on the wall. Three Reds on HawkEye. Pakistan lose their only review. Azhar Ali lbw b 6(4) [4s-1]

W

to Babar Azam, out Lbw!! Double strike from ! Two massive blows they are as well and Pakistan have been shocked early. Another in-ducker that comes in from a good length, Babar Azam's feet went nowhere as he played across the line. The umpire had no hesitation in raising the dreaded finger. Babar might have wanted a review but Azhar took that with him earlier in the over. Don't think the DRS could have saved him though. Umpire's call I reckon it would have been. Beg your pardon guys, HawkEye shows it missing the stumps! Oh, Azhar Ali, what have you done? Babar Azam lbw b 0(1)

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, nicely flicked away! Too full and on the pads, Zaman allows the ball to come in with the swing and middles the clip behind square. Lovely timing!

W

to Hafeez, out Caught by Southee!! Another one bites the dust. The bumper and Hafeez wanted to pull it away, was never in control and so, all he managed to do was to pick fine leg to perfection. Southee had to just amble across to take it. NZ are ripping through with the Pakistan top order here. Deserving wicket for though, kept pegging the batsman forward before unleashing a well-directed bouncer. Hafeez c Southee b 1(9)

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, off the mark with this freebie. Fullish inswinger but it's on the pads, Malik tickles it fine down the leg-side to open his account

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, creamed! tries to go full but ends up dishing a full toss. Plenty of width as well and Fakhar Zaman places the drive in the gap at cover. Well-timed!

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, very full and wide outside off, just the area Fakhar Zaman loves and he spanks the drive through the covers

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, delicious shot! Overcooked from and there is plenty of width as well, just a stride forward from Malik who push-drives it through cover-point. Such pure timing and he also bisected the two fielders in the ring

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, another super shot! Malik has started nicely here, finds the length shortened and just hangs back to punch it through point. Once again gets it right between the two ring fielders and once it beat them, it was always going to race away

W

to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by Latham!! Edged and taken! is on fire. Gets his third and this is a peach, a cross-seamer that jags away with extra bounce. Malik had to play at it due to the angle but the movement and bounce did him in neck and crop. All he could manage was a healthy nick that Latham pouched with glee. NZ are making a mockery of this chase, can say they have probably killed it already. Pakistan need a miracle, for starters they need a partnership. Shoaib Malik c Latham b 13(14) [4s-3]

4

Astle to Sarfraz, FOUR, finally a release stroke that Pakistan were looking for. A trifle short from Astle and Sarfraz latches onto it with a back-foot cut. Beats backward point and races away to the fence

W

Astle to Sarfraz, out Lbw!! The skipper departs! A scratchy innings and partnership ends. No intent really and another one walks back to the hut. The slider from Astle and it skids off the deck to ping Sarfraz on the front pad. Looked quite decent to the naked eye, not sure why Sarfraz was unhappy. Maybe disappointed at the dismissal more than anything. No review left anyway and so he has to go. HawkEye shows Three Reds, so there was never an escape route for Sarfraz. Sarfraz lbw b Astle 8(23) [4s-1]

4

Astle to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, off the edge but no slip in place! Probably the googly and Fakhar went for the cut stroke, only to lose shape. Fortunately for him, nobody in the cordon. At least keep one, Mr.Williamson!

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, he's got one away! Just over long-on! Gets one full and in his arc, Fakhar swings across the line. Didn't connect all that well but the breeze and shorter boundaries helped him. NZ won't mind this

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, does it again! Better control this time I guess. Fakhar shimmies the track and picks this up with a slog sweep. Once again long-on seemed interested but was well over him

OT

to Fakhar Zaman, 1 run, uses his feet does Fakhar and works it away down to long-on, gets to his 3rd ODI fifty, has been fairly mature so far but has lacked support from the others

4

to Shadab Khan, FOUR, blistering stroke! Shadab can surely bat, he's shown it in a few T20 leagues this year. Sees a bit of flight and goes through with the drive. Doesn't bother to keep it down, doesn't have to as he has picked the gap at extra cover. No chance for long-off

4

to Shadab Khan, FOUR, super stroke! The previous shot forces to shorten his length and Shadab is onto it in a jiffy. Rocks back to maul the pull over mid-wicket. Nobody in the deep

6

Astle to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, now he's not entirely in control of that. Made some room, Astle drifted it wider, making Fakhar Zaman reach out. He does, falling over, and gets enough to clear long-off

4

Ferguson to Shadab Khan, FOUR, short outside off and Shadab Khan has pumped it away with an upper cut. Placed it way in front of the third man fielder. With Ferguson's pace, those shots are on

4

Ferguson to Shadab Khan, FOUR, second upper-cut of the over but this one's way better. Plays it even squarer, over the point region. Ferguson's short balls have been quick but have come with some width, which is what's allowing Shadab Khan to throw his bat at it

W

to Shadab Khan, out Caught by Latham!! He's gone but the top order could do with a little fight that Shadab's shown. Takes on the short ball without actually rocking back and elicits a top-edge behind the wicket. Keeper Latham rushes back and takes a neat catch. Shadab Khan c Latham b 28(32) [4s-4]

D

to Faheem Ashraf, no run, could have been another wicket. He's overcommitted on the front foot, the length's not as short

6

Ferguson to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, scorched away. Short and wide, and at Ferguson's pace, upper-cuts are flying away. Way over the ropes

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, back-cut through to the third man fence

4

to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, pulled off the front foot. Brutal swivel over mid-wicket

4

to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, yorker, squeezed out through long-on. The good shots are coming out now from Pakistan

6

to Faheem Ashraf, SIX, into the crowd, not that it's something unreal in New Zealand. Slight flight and Faheem Ashraf flat-bats it over 's head

4

to Munro, FOUR, finds the gap! He is looking ominous once more, is Munro. Had a terrific time against the Windies and seems to be in the mood today as well. Fractionally short and a hint of width, he stand tall and punches it square through the off-side. Right through the two fielders in the ring and it scoots away

6

to Guptill, SIX, straight as an arrow! Guptill joins in the fun. Stayed a bit leg-side of the ball and saw the length full, in the slot and he gets right under it. Lofts it straight over 's head. Connected so well that he sent it crashing into the sightscreen

4

to Munro, FOUR, that's one of Munro's special shots. Fractionally short and around middle, he just shuffles across and plays a one-legged half-pull down to the fine leg fence. Raced away off the blade

4

to Munro, FOUR, super shot! Overpitched from and it's more on middle and leg, easy for Munro who picks it up with a dropkick through mid-wicket

4

to Munro, FOUR, for a moment, I thought he mistimed it but no, he's picked the bones out of it. Short of a length around off, Munro goes aerial with the pull over wide mid-on. One bounce into the ropes

4

to Munro, FOUR, this is poor from , he's bowling both sides of the wicket now and that's never ideal, especially to a rampaging strokemaker. Full and quite wide outside off, he reaches it with a slice over backward point. Cleared the infield easily

6

to Munro, SIX, shot of the morning so far! How effortlessly has he hit that!! Brilliant! Full and just around off, Munro gets across on one knee and just lobs this into the deep mid-wicket stands with a lovely pick up slog sweep. Terrific hitting!

4

Ali to Guptill, FOUR, finds the edge! Just evades a diving first slip though. On that good length outside off, Guptill was neither forward nor back as he fiddled with it. Off the outside edge but luckily for him, doesn't go to hand and races down to the third man fence

6

Ali to Munro, SIX, ODI fifty no.5 for Munro! He is in some form, isn't he? This wasn't that convincing a stroke though and teases a deep backward square leg fielder, clears him comfortably eventually. Small boundaries and the breeze aiding him. Shorter length and he wanted to pull this probably in front of square a bit, got a top edge in the end that still did the job

4

Ali to Munro, FOUR, more runs! Ali strays down the leg-side, Munro gets across to flick, gets a faint tickle onto the pads as it beats Sarfraz to his left

W

Ali to Munro, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Ali you beauty! Amazed at this lad's terrific wicket-taking ability. He's hardly ever let his team down over the last 6-8 months. This is a massive strike for Pakistan. Munro was looking unstoppable and they have got him just when he was threatening to get something really substantial. The change of angle works for Ali, angles it in on a good length just outside off, a bit of extra bounce perhaps as Munro has a waft at it. Thick edge and the Pakistan captain does the rest. Munro c Sarfraz b Ali 58(35) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

Ashraf to Williamson, FOUR, thick edge but right in the gap! First slip is placed well wider and this goes between him and Sarfraz. Short and wide, Williamson threw his hands on the cut stroke but couldn't ride the bounce. Luckily for him, it flew in the gap. Would have been interesting if the first slip was placed traditionally

4

Ashraf to Guptill, FOUR, up and over mid-on! More of a jab from Guptill but he's cleared the infield comfortably. Too full from Ashraf and he pays the price for it

4

Ashraf to Williamson, FOUR, timely boundary for NZ. The run scoring was being choked and the skipper decides to release the pressure. Williamson decides to give the charge in response to Ashraf's shorter length assortment, essays a cracking punch on the up through cover. The man at sweeper is squarer and this races away

D

Ashraf to Williamson, 1 run, dropped by Sarfraz! Time to caution himself with a few words, maybe? It's not a dolly, he had to dive one-handed to his right but in international cricket, a good keeper takes these. It was a good length ball and Williamson's attempt to run it down to third man nearly brought about his downfall. Already a few close shaves in this innings for him and his counterpart spills it. What a costly miss this could be!

4

Ashraf to Williamson, FOUR, another calculated risk from Williamson. Charges down the track once more and this time finds the length full. Chips it over mid-on and connected beautifully. Never a risk with the field up

4

Ashraf to Guptill, FOUR, loose ball and dispatched! Ashraf errs on the fuller side and what's worse, strays on the pads with fine leg in the ring. Guptill gets across to flick it past that fielder, more off the inner half but was certainly in the intended area. Expensive over for Pakistan, just the tempo-changing one NZ were looking for

6

Khan to Guptill, SIX, smack. comes from a different end and Guptill's greeted him with a smack over long-on. Lovely hit. Could go a long way in triggering Guptill into some hitting form

4

Khan to Guptill, FOUR, dropped short, and easily pulled round the corner. This isn't looking great for Pakistan. They made a good comeback after the first 10 overs but are letting it slip again

6

Zaman to Williamson, SIX, and now Zaman concedes a six off the first ball of the over. Dragged down, yes, but how quickly does Williamson get into position to mow this over deep mid-wicket!

W

Zaman to Guptill, out Caught by Shoaib Malik!! And he falls a couple of runs within his fifty. That's a short and wide delivery, Guptill cuts and finds squarish short third man to perfection - handing Zaman his first international wicket. Very timely wicket for Pakistan. Guptill c Shoaib Malik b Zaman 48(72) [4s-4 6s-2]

OT

Zaman to Williamson, 1 run, drifting in on leg-stump, Williamson works it to long-on to bring up his 33rd ODI fifty

4

to Williamson, FOUR, shortish and sitting up on middle and leg, Williamson swivels and swats this off the front foot over square leg

4

to Williamson, FOUR, edged to third man. Throws his hands at the width, and elicits an edge thanks to the extra bounce. There's no slip cordon and Sarfraz's dive wasn't enough

4

to Williamson, FOUR, bowls short, pulled uppishly through vacant mid-wicket

W

Ali to Ross Taylor, out Bowled!! Out of nowhere. That's what Ali can do. Got the ball to cut back in, sneaking below Ross Taylor's bat blade and clattering into the top of off-stump. Familiar celebrations from the World No.1 Ross Taylor b Ali 12(14)

W

Ashraf to Latham, out Caught by Babar Azam!! That's good from Sarfraz. Took the slip out and got a mid-wicket instead before this ball. Ashraf played pool with a straighter line and had Latham lobbing the flick to the fielder. Latham c Babar Azam b Ashraf 3(7)

4

Ashraf to Williamson, FOUR, Williamson plays this one fine, picking it off the pads. No chance getting across to stop that one for the fielder in the deep

4

Khan to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, drifting across to land outside off, Henry Nicholls has reverse-swept it past short third man

4

Ashraf to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, comes down the track and swats it across uppishly. Misfield in the deep at long leg, where the ball spun away from Azhar. Sarfraz isn't happy

4

Ali to Williamson, FOUR, 10th ODI hundred for Williamson. Gets the first ODI hundred in Wellington in 41 years. Cuts it through backward point and gets to the milestone. Takes in helmet off and inhales all the applause

4

Ali to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, woah, he's gone across his stumps a long way and scooped that right over the keeper's head. Nicely under that, with stretched legs that gave him the balance

W

to Williamson, out Caught by Hasan Ali!! It needed something like this to dismiss Williamson, who's been an absolute delight to watch today. Came down the track and plonked the ball up, intending to go big down the ground. Just that it was a slower ball and the line was wide, so he wasn't in total control. Msicues it up, Hasan Ali calls for the catch around extra cover and gets under the steepler, braving the sun and Pakistan's own plight at the moment. Williamson c Hasan Ali b 115(117) [4s-8 6s-1]

4

to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, nice front foot pull, clearing the mid-wicket region at will

OT

to Henry Nicholls, 1 run, fifty for Henry Nicholls! Clips it through mid-wicket

W

Ali to Henry Nicholls, out Caught by Sarfraz!! He went across on his knees to scoop that over the keeper's head again but Ali followed him with a low full toss.
Off the splice and to the keeper. Henry Nicholls c Sarfraz b Ali 50(43) [4s-4]

4

Ali to Southee, FOUR, backs away and swings the full toss over mid-wicket. Not too far from being a six that

4

to Santner, FOUR, it's a leg-stump yorker and Santner has managed to squeeze it out to deep mid-wicket

W

to Santner, out Caught by Raees!! Backed away, mowed it powerfully across but found the fielder in the deep. Good from to follow Santner down leg there. Santner c Raees b 7(5) [4s-1]

4

to Southee, FOUR, somehow managed to glance the yorker length through fine leg
