W

to Munro, out Caught by Faheem Ashraf!! Big fish chugged down. Munro falls for a 2-ball duck and New Zealand have been jolted early. The outswinger just outside off, Munro had a tentative poke first ball and decides to take the attack on this delivery. It swung away and took his outside edge, fat edge and it flew to third man. Faheem took a couple of steps in, juggles onto his chest and holds on. is over the moon, so are rest of his team-mates. Munro c Faheem Ashraf b 0(2)

OT

to Williamson, no run, Pakistan review: Loud and boisterous appeal from the Pakistanis. looks up to his skipper and Sarfraz checks if it pitched in-line. says yes and he brings up the T-sign. Here we go with the process: Fair delivery. No edge. Pitched - in-line, of course. Impact - in-line too. But, but wickets - missing. Pakistan lose their review. Indipper from , swung back in and traps Williamson on the pad. On first glance it looked like too high and umpire Chris Brown turned it down too. was keen for the review and in the end, they have wasted it

4

to Guptill, FOUR, audacious from Guptill. Came down charging in a bid to take on , intending for a downtown loft. Swings north and it goes south, off the outside edge and goes over second slip. Streaky!

4

to Guptill, FOUR, imperious! Implusive pull from Guptill, picking the short ball early and dismissing it over square leg

4

to Guptill, FOUR, clea and crisp hitting from Guptill. Plants his front foot forward and lifts this full ball through the line over mid-on. Presentation of full face of the bat and holds the pose for the cameras as well. Looked classy!

4

to Williamson, FOUR, width and length are like oxygen for Williamson. He cherishes it; committs the sin, tags a length ball with width and Williamson slaps it through the empty cover region

4

Ashraf to Williamson, FOUR, Williamson at his very best. Takes on the short ball and pulls it witheringly in front of square, no chance for the fielder in the deep

W

Ashraf to Williamson, out Caught by Shadab Khan!! Screamer from Shadab Khan. Wowza! He's having a good day so far - first with the bat and now takes a sensational catch at backward point. The centurion from last game and New Zealand's skipper walks back. A short of length and just outside off, Williamson poked at it - hits it uppishly to the left of point. Shadab flew across keeping his eyes on the ball and pulls off a epic take. Gravity-defying. Phew! Williamson c Shadab Khan b Ashraf 19(28) [4s-2]

4

Ashraf to Ross Taylor, FOUR, cut and cut well in the gap. Width for the taking and Taylor says thank you very much. Sits deep in his crease and laces it behind point. Sarfraz behind the stumps isn't happy and has some words of advice

4

Ashraf to Ross Taylor, FOUR, nothing much you can do when balls like these run away to the fence. Goodish length and tails away after pitching, Taylor gropes forward to defend with soft hands. The ball snatches the outside edge and runs past the lone slip. Third man gets across but to no avail

6

Ali to Guptill, SIX, oh! Hello, welcome back to the crease Ali. Up in the slot for Guptill around off, he opens his shoulders and muscles a downtown loft over long-off. Flat-six

6

Ali to Guptill, SIX, woah! Game changing over. Back to back sixes for Guptill. This was banged in short, sits up well for Guptill to nail the pull over deep square leg. There was a fielder over there but it sailed over his head for a maximum

OT

Ali to Ross Taylor, 1 run, direct-hit would've ended Taylor's stay at the crease. Wristed to short mid-wicket and he took off blindly, Babar Azam took his aim at the non striker's end, failed to hit the bulls-eye. Taylor would've well short of his crease

6

Khan to Guptill, SIX, high and handsome. Guptill reaches his fifty in style. Went low and picked the bones out of this tossed up delivery to smoke it over deep mid-wicket

4

Khan to Guptill, FOUR, another expensive over. caps off with a boundary; flat and outside off, Guptill goes deep and slashes it through cover-point

4

to Ross Taylor, no ball, FOUR, poor ball from , to make matters worse he has overstepped too. Oh my! Huge no-ball. I am seeing a no-ball bowled by a Pakistan bowler after a long time. Anyway, it was a gift from , low full toss on leg. Glanced past short fine leg

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, Taylor cashes in on the free-hit. Dug in short, Taylor pulls it in front of square, in the gap between deep mid-wicket and deep square leg. Both fail to intercept it and the deep square leg fielder made it look all awry, letting the ball roll through his legs. Shambolic!

4

Ali to Guptill, FOUR, this wasn't too convincing but he will take it. Back of a length and leapt a touch, Guptill went hard and managed to get it over extra cover

6

Khan to Guptill, SIX, wears a clueless expression on his face. Tossed up on leg, Guptill goes low and dismisses it over deep square leg. Into the grassbanks. Nonchalance!

6

Ali to Guptill, SIX, short ball into the body, Guptill clears his front leg and swings it into the to deep mid-wicket grassbanks for six where a fan squanders the opportunity to win some prize money after he drops the catch

OT

Khan to Guptill, 1 run, to cover flatter ball outside off, pushed to cover for a single. The partnership between Guptill and Ross Taylor is now 100!

OT

to Azhar Ali, no run, There's a review by Pakistan against a caught behind. The original decision is out. It was a short ball into the body, Imam-ul-Haq went for the hook and there might have been a feather of a top-edge. Fair delivery. Nothing on hotspot from the off-side angle. No spike on Snicko when the ball passes the bat either! Might have been the elbow guard after all! The third umpire says that the ball came off the helmet. And the umpire has to reverse his decision

OT

to Imam-ul-Haq, no run, back of a length on middle and leg, tucked to the man at square leg, Nicholls at short mid-wicket dives to pick it up and there is a misunderstanding between the batsmen. Imam-ul-Haq manages to get back at the throw is wayward and the keeper ends up kicking the stumps upon collecting the ball

W

to Imam-ul-Haq, out Caught by Munro!! Short ball outside off, Imam-ul-Haq was committed to the pull and it clearly got big on him. He was late on the ball and it came off the sticker of the bat and just looped to Munro at short mid-wicket, who gobbled it up. The Kiwis have kept it tight this morning, and have reaped the rewards early by stifling the flow of runs. Imam-ul-Haq c Munro b 2(11)

4

to Azhar Ali, FOUR, shgort and into the rib-cage, not too pacy, Azhar Ali shifts his weight quickly onto the back foot and clouts a convincing pull to the backward square leg fence for four

W

to Azhar Ali, out Lbw!! Good length ball on off, seaming back into middle and Azhar Ali tries to play a cute and cross-batted flick, misses it altogether as it raps him on the pad. Smart decision not to review because that was hitting the top half of middle. Definitely out. After some gritty batting to start off with, a poor way to end the knock from Azhar. A lapse in concentration perhaps. Azhar Ali lbw b 6(16) [4s-1]

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, short ball again, this time he connects by getting his weight onto the back foot very early and it goes away square of the fine leg fielder for four

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, scrambled seam on middle seaming away from the right-hander, Babar Azam stays in the crease and defends, gets an outside edge between the keeper and slip away to the fence for four. Played with soft hands which saved him in the end

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, short ball just outside off, skidding on, and Hafeez plays a typical subcontinental flick-pull to deep mid-wicket for four. Phenomenal shot

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, good length delivery just outside off, seaming in, and Babar Azam runs it down between the keeper and Taylor at an inexplicable wide slip for four

W

Ferguson to Babar Azam, out Caught by Ross Taylor!! Back of a length ball just a fraction wide outside off at ~142kmph, Babar Azam trusts the bounce more than he should and has a transfer-of-weight waft away from his body, trying to run his hands through the ball into a cover drive. He gets a thick outside edge and Taylor is quick as a cat in the slips. Takes it easily. Babar Azam c Ross Taylor b Ferguson 10(17) [4s-2]

4

Ferguson to Hafeez, FOUR, wide half-volley outside off, Hafeez leans into a square drive between cover point and backward point for four

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, full and wide outside off, tossed up and some turn too, but Shoaib Malik read it well and with his nimble feet, reached the pitch of the ball and lofted it over long-off for six

4

Ferguson to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, just a fraction short and wide outside off, Shoaib Malik is already in a low stance and he slashes hard at it, gets it to the third man fence for four

6

Astle to Shoaib Malik, SIX, leg-break tossed up on off, Shoaib Malik comes down the track, gets right to the pitch of it and lofts it straight into the sight-screen for six. Doesn't let it turn

4

Astle to Hafeez, FOUR, half-tracker on middle, Hafeez has an eternity to rock back onto the back foot and nails that pull to deep mid-wicket for four

W

Astle to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by Southee at long-on!! Leg-break on leg and middle, Shoaib Malik made room and came down the track. Tried to loft it over the long-on fence but it went straight down the throat of Southee at the fence. He got to the pitch of it but just played down the wrong line, to be honest. Came off the inside half, so he was anticipated too much turn. Just didn't get the timing right. Shoaib Malik c Southee b Astle 27(46) [4s-1 6s-2]

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, half-volley just outside off, Hafeez leans into a check-drive off a half-cocked stance, times the pants off it and into the long-off fence for four

4

Astle to Hafeez, FOUR, shorter than he wants to be just outside off, Hafeez makes room, crouches low and cuts it away with the turn to the deep backward point for four. 6000 runs up for Hafeez!

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, a slow short ball into the body, and Hafeez is early into this pull, wristy whip of a pull to deep mid-wicket for four

4

to Hafeez, FOUR, just a fraction short outside off, cross-seam ball into the right-hander, steered with a vertical bat to the third man fence for four. Fifty up for Hafeez! Needs to go on and get a hundred here

OT

Astle to Sarfraz, no run, the slider, zips through and Sarfraz plays down the wrong line, misses and is rapped on the pad. Astle was confident and persuaded his skipper to go for the review. It was clear though with the ball tracker showing that it was clipping the outside half of the leg-pole

W

Astle to Sarfraz, out Stumped!! There's no escape for Sarfraz on this occasion. Survived a close LBW call last ball and now the brainfade from the Pakistan captain. Completely needless to say the least. Shimmies out to a flatter ball, wasn't to the pitch and had to adjust belatedly with a fishing willow. The ball slides under his bat and the keeper does the rest. Sarfraz tried to get back but in vain. Joy for Astle, Latham embraces him with a bear hug. Sarfraz st Latham b Astle 3(6)

W

to Hafeez, out Caught by Guptill!! Holy-moly! What happened there Hafeez? Seems like Professor's concentration went for a toss there. He was looking really good and harboured hopes of a comeback for Pakistan but now it's all going down the drain. The big fish and the set batsman gone, Pakistan sink further into the mire. Cleverly done by , saw the batsman step out and drifted it well wide of off. Hafeez wasn't to the pitch and crunched hard at it, straight to short extra cover. It was travelling and Guptill holds onto it. Hafeez c Guptill b 60(71) [4s-8]

4

to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, off-pace ball from and Ashraf spotted it extremely early. Rocked back and slotted it wide of mid-on

OT

to Shadab Khan, 1 run, push-driven to cover, Santer releases the throw quickly and effects a direct-hit at the striker's end, Ashraf had to put in his skates and reaches there grounding his bat safely

W

Ferguson to Faheem Ashraf, out Caught by Southee!! "Nothing is working for Pakistan," admits Waqar Younis on air. Totally agree. Ferguson comes back in his new spell and removes Ashraf. The short delivery angled down leg, Ashraf went for the pull and can't find the meat. Straight to fine leg and Southee grabs it with ease. Faheem Ashraf c Southee b Ferguson 7(18) [4s-1]

6

to Hasan Ali, SIX, full and on the pads, Hasan Ali just picks it up with incredible timing over deep square leg fence for six! Just a wristy pick-up shot!

6

to Hasan Ali, SIX, another loopy ball on a good length on middle stump, Hasan Ali makes use of his reach and slog-sweeps it wristily high over long-on for a humongous six!

D

Ferguson to Hasan Ali, no run, has Astle taken it cleanly? He says he hasn't but gestures he isn't sure. They go upstairs to check and it's evident that he has taken it on the half-volley. Chipped airly in front of mid-on, Astle dived forward and the ball bounces into the turf before he could get his hands underneath it

4

Ferguson to Hasan Ali, FOUR, edged and profitable resut for Pakistan. Hasan swings hastily, gets a fat outside edge and it flies throug the vacant slip cordon

OT

Ferguson to Hasan Ali, no run, dropped towards cover, Ali wanted a single but sent back wisely

4

Astle to Hasan Ali, FOUR, nicely done. Scooches low and sweeps it fine. Top shot from Ali

6

Astle to Hasan Ali, SIX, what a response from Ali. Sees a flighted delivery, shows his muscle power and blasts it over long-on

4

Astle to Shadab Khan, FOUR, edged and runs through the invisible slip cordon. Leg-break just outside off, Shadab went after it and gets a thickish outside edge that flies away to the third man fence

4

Astle to Hasan Ali, FOUR, woah. Ali is playing a blinder. 21 runs off the over. Shortish leg-break, ample time for Ali to free his arms and bully it wide of long-off. 50-stand comes up too

4

to Hasan Ali, FOUR, top-edge and four. Ali gives the charge, mows his bat and manages a top-edge that loops over the keeper

6

to Hasan Ali, SIX, oh goodness! This must be humilating for . What a strike. Right off the screws. Gets under this length ball and sends it into the oblivion over mid-wicket. 49 now

OT

to Hasan Ali, 2 runs, brings up his maiden ODI fifty. And oh boy! Look at his celebration - the famous generator one as they call it. We are only used to it when he's working his magic with the ball. Anyway, a vertical bat to lap this short ball to fine leg and reaches the milestone

W

to Hasan Ali, out Caught by Todd Astle!! And he holes out. End of a terrific innings from Ali. Seemed like the slower ball which meant Ali had to generate some power behind his heave. The bat turned on impact there and that foiled his timing. Hits it towards long-on and Astle safely clings onto it. Hasan Ali c Todd Astle b 51(31) [4s-4 6s-4]

6

to Shadab Khan, SIX, too predictable from . Banged in short and Shadab was ready for it. Pulls it with ferocity on the front foot into the grassbanks at deep mid-wicket

4

to Shadab Khan, FOUR, I take my words back. Pakistan should aim for 250 here. Slower ball just outside off, Shadab picks it and whacks it powerfully over mid-off

4

to Shadab Khan, FOUR, fifty for Shadab. Bends low and kisses the turf in delight. Pitched up just outside off, Shadab makes room and flays it over extra cover

D

Ferguson to Shadab Khan, no run, Oh! Ferguson almost pulled off a return catch. Slower short ball at 110.2kph, Shadab hammered it back and Ferguson got both his hands on the followthrough. It pops out though

W

Ferguson to Shadab Khan, out Caught by Latham!! Technology ends Shadab's brilliant innings. Short ball above the head, he pulled and missed. There was a certain noise and Kiwis went for the review. RTS indicated a tiny spike and the decision comes in the favour of the hosts. Shadab Khan c Latham b Ferguson 52(68) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

Ferguson to Raees, FOUR, this will do. Handy runs for Pakistan. Raees throws his bat and gets it over mid-off. Zooms away to the fence
