All|Overs 1-50
4

to Guptill, leg byes, FOUR, Guptill is not happy with the decision. He reckons it came off the gloves. Yes, it did. Short of length around the hips, off the glove and past Sarfraz. The umpire thought it was off the thigh pad

4

to Guptill, FOUR, Guptill takes toll. goes full and on leg-stump, Guptill clears his front leg and targeted cow corner, off the inside half of the bat and over backward square leg. He won't mind it

6

to Guptill, SIX, for the first time offers width and he is made to pay, Guptill did not back away this time, stands tall and crashes the cut over backward point, the short boundaries take care of the rest

W

to Munro, out Lbw!! Huge wicket. The in-form Munro is sent back for just a single. He knew he was a dead duck, doesn't even bother to have a chat with Guptill to review that. The umpire took his time before raising the finger. is delighted and so are the rest of his mates. They know the importance of this wicket. Full and aimed for the stumps, Munro shuffled across and missed on the flick, banged right in front of middle. HawkEye shows it to be crashing into middle stump. As plumb as it can get. He was beaten for pace there, was Munro. Munro lbw b 1(2)

W

to Williamson, out Caught by Haris Sohail!! Stunner! Williamson gone for a golden duck. First duck for him as New Zealand captain, 92 innings. Pakistan are cock-a-hoop. They have two inside four overs. Back of a length and on off, Williamson moves across and clips it uppishly towards short mid-wicket, Haris flies across to his left and takes a one-handed stunner. Excellent anticipation from him and he moved quickly across. Williamson c Haris Sohail b 0(1)

4

Ashraf to Tom Bruce, FOUR, edged and four. Dug in halfway down and hurries Bruce on the pull shot, the batsman is late and the top-edge flies over Sarfraz, a much needed boundary for New Zealand

6

Ashraf to Tom Bruce, SIX, palmed it over. Sarfraz is fuming. You do not want to be Raees. Short and just outside off, Bruce makes room and slices the cut to third man, Raees moves to his left and goes reverse cup, the ball bursts through and goes over the fence

4

Ashraf to Tom Bruce, byes, FOUR, bonus runs for New Zealand. Bouncer outside off, Bruce takes it on but the ball keeps climbing on him, sails over the top-edge and beats Sarfraz's leap. Not much the Pakistan skipper could have done there

W

Ali to Tom Bruce, out Tom Bruce Run Out!! Wow! Haris Sohail is on fire in the field. Is this the same Pakistan team that have not won a game on tour? They look a different unit tonight. Back of a length and on off, Bruce swivels and mistimes the pull to mid-wicket, he was back in the crease and still wanted to go for the single, Haris swoops down and fires a direct-hit at the bowler's end. Bruce is not even in the frame. Out by a long way. Tom Bruce run out (Haris Sohail) 11(8) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

Khan to Guptill, out Caught by Umar Amin!! New Zealand slip further. Guptill never looked set and he slices one straight to the fielder. strikes in his first over. Trifle short and outside off, Guptill cannot control the cut shot and the thickish outside edge flies to short third man. A dolly for Umar Amin, who had switched places with Raees after the previous ball. Guptill c Umar Amin b Khan 26(27) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

Khan to de Grandhomme, FOUR, that's the way he plays. Floated up in his zone and de Grandhomme just goes through with the shot, the cover drive hit in the air and over the cover fielder. No chance for sweeper cover

OT

Ashraf to Glenn Phillips, 2 runs, that was a bit careless from Phillips. He forces the back of a length delivery wide of third man and called for two immediately, he was comfortable in but should have slided his bat in. It was another direct-hit from Pakistan

W

Ashraf to Glenn Phillips, out Caught by Haris Sohail!! Five down and Pakistan are bossing this game. Haris Sohail is everywhere. Back of a length delivery, Phillips takes a step out of the crease to loft it over long-on, the extra bounce that Ashraf generates hits the splice of the bat and balloons to mid-wicket. Haris moves to his right and pouches it. Glenn Phillips c Haris Sohail b Ashraf 5(9)

6

Khan to de Grandhomme, SIX, wow! Fabulous shot. Flighted delivery outside off, de Grandhomme plants his front foot forward and smashes it over extra cover, the ball kept sailing and it is a flat six

W

Khan to de Grandhomme, out Stumped!! has his man. Three balls against de Grandhomme, he got it for a four and a six but responded by picking his wicket. Why did he shimmy down? de Grandhomme was striking them cleanly from the crease, but decides to charge down and smartly slows down the pace, into the shot early and the ball spins away to beat his prod, Sarfraz does the rest behind the stumps. de Grandhomme tried to get back in but Sarfraz beat him to it. de Grandhomme st Sarfraz b Khan 10(3) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

Ashraf to Ben Wheeler, FOUR, edged and four. There is a slip but Wheeler got it wide of him. Full and outside off, Wheeler drives sans footwork and the outside edge runs away fine, beating third man

4

Ali to Santner, FOUR, this time gets it over the fielder. Similar delivery to the previous one, Santner hoped a bit and flat-batted it over mid-wicket, placed it to perfection and pocketed a boundary

4

Khan to Santner, FOUR, floats up the googly outside off, Santner goes for the loft down the ground, the ball turns away and takes the outside edge, runs away fine beating Ashraf's slide at short third man

6

Khan to Ben Wheeler, SIX, long hop and it deserved the treatment. Sat up nicely for Wheeler, who transfers his weight back and pulls over long-on, just had enough to clear the field

6

to Ben Wheeler, SIX, shot! That for me is the shot of the day. Yes, there have been some fabulous cricket shots played today, but this top drawer. Full and on the stumps, Wheeler gets a small stride forward and lofts it gun-barrel straight, into the second tier. The balance and head position were in sync

OT

to Ben Wheeler, 1 run, 50-run stand comes up. New Zealand have not given up, yet. Low full toss fired around off, Wheeler brings his bat down late and squirts it past the stumps, Sarfraz runs back and keeps it to a single

4

Ali to Ben Wheeler, FOUR, missed the yorker by a couple of inches and is put away. Full and around off, Wheeler goes up and over extra cover, couple of bounces and into the fence. Hit that powerfully

W

Ali to Ben Wheeler, out Bowled!! That's the riposte from Ali. Out come the celebration. He is delighted for having his man. A typical Ali wicket. Good length delivery that skids through the surface, Wheeler is late on the shot, drives after the ball had gone past the bat. Leg-stump uprooted. Ben Wheeler b Ali 30(20) [4s-2 6s-2]

4

Ali to Ish Sodhi, leg byes, FOUR, huge shout for LBW. They don't take the review. Fired in full on middle and leg, Sodhi is late on the flick and is struck on the pad, the ball runs away fine. HawkEye shows it to be missing leg-stump. Good call from Sarfraz to not take the review

4

to Santner, FOUR, Santner keeps going. Slower short of length delivery that sat up nicely, Santner waits and waits before slapping it in front of square on the off-side, bisecting extra cover and mid-off

4

to Santner, FOUR, streaky! But Santner won't mind. Sharp back of a length delivery cramps Santner for room, he goes for the pull and an inside edge runs away past a diving Sarfraz, no chance for fine leg

6

Ali to Ish Sodhi, SIX, misses the yorker and is dispatched into the crowd. A low full toss that was dipping, Sodhi clears his front leg to free his arms and smashes it flat over long-on. He enjoyed that

4

to Ish Sodhi, FOUR, Sodhi keeps swinging and gets another boundary. Short delivery tucked for room and still somehow Sodhi manages to get the pull away, got it in the gap and beat long-on comfortably

OT

to Santner, 2 runs, back of a length angled into the body, Santner tucks it in front of deep mid-wicket and called for two. Good throw from Shehzad, right on top of the stumps, but Santner made it in with a full length dive. Sarfraz knew it and aborted from the appeal quickly, the square leg umpire thought didn't want to take any chance and sent it upstairs

W

to Santner, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Second for and Pakistan are almost there. The short of length delivery was causing a few problems to Santner, he backed away to leg and tried to pull it, thick outside edge flies to Sarfraz, who collects it over his head. A handy knock from Santner ends. Santner c Sarfraz b 37(28) [4s-4]

W

Ashraf to Rance, out Caught by Fakhar Zaman!! Another one bites the dirt. A tame loft from Rance and he finds the fielder. Good length ball on middle and leg, Rance stays leg-side and lofts it with a straight bat, nowhere close to the middle and Zaman clings on to the sitter at long-on. Rance c Fakhar Zaman b Ashraf 1(2)

W

Ashraf to Ish Sodhi, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Pakistan win by 48 runs. Ashraf ends with three wickets. Smiles all round in the Pakistan camp. The short delivery rushes onto Sodhi, who is beaten for pace and late on the pull shot, the top-edge skies up and goes over Sarfraz, Azam from short fine leg, calls for the catch and takes it neatly. Ish Sodhi c Babar Azam b Ashraf 15(12) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, cracking shot, full and wide of off, that's a half-volley from as he searched for swing, there's none of that on offer and Zaman crashes it through cover, off the mark in style

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, lovely, too full and too wide from , Shehzad reaches out, plays with an open face and finds the gap past point, no need to run for those

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, expensive start from , short and on the stumps, Shehzad swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it fine, beats Sodhi's dive at short fine and rolls away to the fence

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, cracking shot, on a good length and well outside off, Shehzad leans forward and drives it on the up, bounces and then lobs over Guptill at backward point, no chance for the man getting across from third man

4

Wheeler to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, Zaman is looking in good touch, full and wide of off, Zaman reaches out and slaps it square behind point, no one in the deep and it's another boundary for Zaman

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, smashed, length ball outside off, Zaman gets forward and thumps it back over the non-striker's head, beats mid-off and rolls away to the fence

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, lovely hit, on a good length and on the stumps, Shehzad gets forward and lifts it over mid-on, one bounce and over the fence. is proving to be expensive

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, short and wide of off, Zaman backs away, makes room and clatters it over point, couple of bounces and over the ropes. This is some start from Pakistan, 14 from the over

4

Wheeler to Shehzad, FOUR, too short from Wheeler, Shehzad swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it backward of square on the on-side, another boundary for Shehzad

4

Wheeler to Shehzad, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for Shehzad, this is the best of the lot, length delivery outside off, Shehzad gets forward and drills it past his partner, beats the diving fielder at mid-off, brings up Pakistan's 50

4

Wheeler to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, Zaman joins the party, too short from Wheeler, Zaman swivels across, rolls his wrists and beats the man in the ring at short fine with the pull

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, lovely hit, tossed up on the stumps, Zaman comes down the track, makes room as he did so and smacked it flat and hard - over the bowler's head, went all the way for a maximum

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, back-to-back sixes for Zaman, this is a lovely hit, Zaman came down the track, gets close to the ball and pummels it high and way over long-on

6

to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, massive, third six of the over, pushed through flatter and on the stumps, Zaman gets down low and swipes it hard and over mid-wicket for another maximum, 22 off the over

OT

Sodhi to Shehzad, 1 run, flighted on off, Shehzad nudges it in front of square on the off-side and calls his partner across for a quick single, Fakhar Zaman responds early and makes home with ease. The third umpire is called for, but he was always in

OT

to Shehzad, no run, a direct hit and Fakhar Zaman was a goner. He was backing up for a single after Shehzad mistimed the drive towards point. Guptill was the man with the shy, he took his time and aimed at the bowler's end, misses it by a whisker

OT

to Fakhar Zaman, 1 run, another short ball from , Zaman swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it to deep square leg, raises his maiden T20I fifty

6

to Shehzad, SIX, lovely, the cross-seam delivery from , too full though, lets Shehzad gets underneath it. He hits hard and flat, the man at long-on thought he was in with a chance, but the ball whizzed past him at a rate of knots

W

to Shehzad, out Caught by de Grandhomme!! That's the first wicket for New Zealand, some relief for them. A similar delivery as the previous one, just that this was a fraction short in length, meant that Shehzad couldn't get underneath the lofted on-drive, dragged it towards long-on and de Grandhomme completes a straightforward catch. Shehzad c de Grandhomme b 44(34) [4s-6 6s-1]

W

Grandhomme to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Ish Sodhi!! Double blow for Pakistan and the hosts are getting back into the contest. This was a slower short ball from Grandhomme, Zaman had no pace to work with, he went through with the shovelled pull, doesn't get the elevation nor the distance. Sodhi runs across to his right from long leg, settles unr the pull and holds on. Fakhar Zaman c Ish Sodhi b Grandhomme 50(28) [4s-5 6s-3]

4

Grandhomme to Sarfraz, FOUR, very full from Grandhomme, Sarfraz shuffles right across his stumps, bends down low and sweeps it fine, beats the man getting across from the ep

4

Grandhomme to Babar Azam, FOUR, lovely, length livery outsi off, Babar gets a good stri forward and drives it past the bowler, beats the fielr at mid-off and rolls away to the fence

4

Wheeler to Babar Azam, FOUR, fine shot from Babar, too short from Wheeler, Babar swivels across and pulls it over square leg, bisects the gap between the two fielders in the deep

6

to Sarfraz, SIX, lovely, length delivery outside off, Sarfraz gets a good stride forward and pummels it back over 's head, the short straight boundary takes care of the rest

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, excellent shot from Babar, half-volley outside off, he leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and punches it past mid-off

4

Sodhi to Babar Azam, FOUR, drilled, Babar runs down the track, makes room and flays it back past the bowler, one bounce and over the ropes

D

Sodhi to Babar Azam, 1 run, that will go down as a chance, but fair to say that Sodhi has saved three runs for his team. This was tossed up on the stumps, Babar came down the track and smashed it back at the bowler. Sodhi pushed his hands at it, it hits him and lobbed back over the umpire's head

4

Sodhi to Sarfraz, FOUR, lovely, this was tossed up on off, Sarfraz backs away, plays with an open face and clears cover with an inside edge drive, a couple of bounces and over the ropes

6

Sodhi to Sarfraz, SIX, that's a shocker from Sodhi, a real long hop, Sarfraz has plenty of time to rock back and pull it high and over mid-wicket

6

to Babar Azam, SIX, lovely, you can't bowl anywhere near the batsman's arc on this ground, this was a full-toss outside off, Babar gets forward and slaps it over the head of the man at long-off

D

to Sarfraz, 1 run, chance and Santner has put it down, must have lost it against the background. He was way too early on the jump and ended up trying to save his face, grabbed at the ball and shelled it. It was a slower delivery outside off that was slogged towards mid-wicket

6

Wheeler to Sarfraz, SIX, massive, length delivery on the stumps, Sarfraz gets underneath it and swings it high and towards mid-wicket. It hung in the air for a long time but then sailed into the stands

W

Wheeler to Sarfraz, out Caught by Munro!! Sarfraz falls after a fine hand. On a good length and angling across the right-hander, Sarfraz was looking to drag it over mid-wicket, hit high on the bat and straight up in the air. Munro settled underneath and holds on - reverse cup. Sarfraz walks off to a rousing reception. Sarfraz c Munro b Wheeler 41(24) [4s-2 6s-3]

W

Wheeler to Faheem Ashraf, out Caught by Santner!! Santner makes amends for his earlier dropped catch. Good bowling from Wheeler, banged it short and just outside off, Ashraf was rushed onto the pull, gets into a horrible position and mistimes it towards mid-wicket. Santner runs forward and completes the catch. They check for the front-foot no-ball, but Wheeler has a bit inside the popping crease. Faheem Ashraf c Santner b Wheeler 0(1)

D

Wheeler to Babar Azam, 2 runs, that would have been a sensational catch had Rance taken it. Banged in short and on the stumps, Babar was in no position on the pull and plays an awkward looking shovel. Rance runs across to his left and then around the ball, it was always dropping in front of him, he stretches forward on the dive, gets his left-hand to the ball, but it popped out

4

to Hasan Ali, FOUR, edged and four, full and wide of off, Hasan swings hard, gets a thick edge that flies past the keeper, handy boundary for Hasan

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, fifty for Babar and Pakistan finish with 201 on the board. Short and on the stumps, Babar backs away and thumps the pull wide of mid-wicket
