All|Overs 1-50
4

to Williamson, FOUR, poor delivery and that's the first boundary of the innings. Slips this one on the pads, Williamson nonchalantly clips it past short fine leg, no chance for deep square leg to stop that

6

to Guptill, SIX, streaky! But Guptill will take that. Something to get him going. Short and it hurries onto Guptill, who is late on the pull shot, the top-edge skies towards fine leg and just about manages to clear the rope

6

to Guptill, SIX, that is one way of countering the line Pakistan are bowling. Steps across his stumps at the last second, waits for the back of a length delivery and helps it along the way over fine leg. The short boundaries taking care of the rest

W

Ashraf to Williamson, out Caught by Babar Azam!! This was on the cards. The New Zealand innings was going nowhere and Williamson perishes while trying to manufacture something. He moves away to the leg-side and waits for the short delivery around off, hops and cracks the cut straight to cover-point. Sharp take from Azam as the ball was travelling. Wicket off the first ball for Ashraf. Williamson c Babar Azam b Ashraf 9(14) [4s-1]

4

Ashraf to Kitchen, FOUR, nice way to open one's account. Ashraf offers width and is dispatched, short and outside off, Kitchen is on the front foot while playing the cut shot and he places it behind point, raced away beating third man

4

Ashraf to Kitchen, FOUR, wow! Superb timing. That ball traveled to the fence at the rate of knots. Wee bit of width from Ashraf once again and Kitchen capitalizes, stands back in the crease and rides the bounce to cut it wide of backward point. Sarfraz gestures to Ashraf to bowl it close to the body

6

Ashraf to Guptill, SIX, out of the ground. "That is Martin Guptill," yells Ian Smith on air. Head down while he completes the bat swing. Not even looking at the ball. Full and around off, Guptill he moves away to free his arms and smashes it straight back over Ashraf. Bounces on the roof and goes out of the park. 108 meters! Costly over for Pakistan, 15 runs off the over

6

Yamin to Guptill, SIX, much needed six for Guptill and New Zealand. The last three overs have fetched them only 7 runs, required a biggie and Guptill produces it. Short and outside off, Guptill stands tall and forearms the pull over cow corner

4

Khan to Guptill, FOUR, 2000 T20I runs. Only the second batsmen to reach the landmark. The other being his former mate - Brendon McCullum. Flighted outside off, Guptill reaches out and slices the drive past the diving short third man fielder. Sarfraz is not happy with the effort

OT

Khan to Guptill, 2 runs, fifty for Guptill. He holds the key for New Zealand. No real celebration from him. Just a quick raise of the bat to acknowledge the applause. Fraction short and outside off, Guptill cuts it square and sweeper does a good job, runs across to his left and slides to pull the back in play

4

Ashraf to Guptill, FOUR, cheeky! Delicately played by Guptill. Backs away to the leg-side and waits for the back of a length delivery, he was almost cramped for room, but he crouched a bit and carved it over short third man. Used the pace of the bowler there

W

Khan to Kitchen, out Stumped!! This might be a blessing for New Zealand. Kitchen failed to get going after those first two boundaries. He was eating up deliveries and was putting pressure on Guptill to do all the scoring. He shimmies down the wicket and runs past a leg-break, wanted to smack it to long-on and got enough turn to beat the outside edge. Sarfraz does the rest behind the stumps. Kitchen st Sarfraz b Khan 16(19) [4s-2]

W

Khan to Guptill, out Caught by Fakhar Zaman!! Sarfraz is delighted. He runs all the way to Zaman and jumps onto him. Two wickets in the over for and he caps off a brilliant night, 4-0-19-2. Guptill is livid with himself. Shouts in frustration as he walks back. Lovely delivery from . Slowed it considerably and kept it outside off, Guptill sat down on his knee to play the slog sweep, the leg-break catches the top-edge and balloons to deep mid-wicket. A dolly for Zaman, who did not have to move an inch. Guptill c Fakhar Zaman b Khan 59(43) [4s-2 6s-4]

W

Yamin to de Grandhomme, out Bowled!! Cleaned up. Pakistan on fire. Three wickets in quick succesion. A cross-seam back of a length delivery, hint of deck in, de Grandhomme stands his ground and looks to swat it into the leg-side, beaten for pace and the ball kisses the off-bail. Four down and New Zealand are staring down the barrel. de Grandhomme b Yamin 1(2)

4

Yamin to Tom Bruce, FOUR, bad delivery and Sarfraz is not happy with his bowler. Lets out a roar immediately. Short and down leg, Bruce rides the bounce and helps it along the way past short fine leg, relied on placeing the ball there

6

Ashraf to Ross Taylor, SIX, this is the old Ross Taylor. People near the mid-wicket fence watch out! If he's in the mood there will be some coming your way. Shuffles across and picks the bones out of the length delivery, deposited onto the grass banks

6

Ashraf to Ross Taylor, SIX, and another. Same area and swing and miss result. Ashraf dragged his length back, but Taylor was on the move, he walked across and down to smoke it over deep mid-wicket. Pinged the ad boardings on the full

D

Ashraf to Ross Taylor, 2 runs, in the air and short. Full and outside off, Taylor moved across and flashed hard, aiming for the long-on fence, the outside edge skies towards third man and drops in front of the incoming fielder, Raees does well to get his body behind the line

6

to Ross Taylor, SIX, third six for Taylor. Full and on the stumps, Taylor walks down and across, picks it up nonchalantly over the deep square leg fence. The timing on this one was superb, just a flick of the risk and off she went

6

to Tom Bruce, SIX, Bruce joins the party. New Zealand need him to. Taylor can't do it alone. The slower delivery and Bruce spotted it early, lined up for the mow and connected neatly to slot it into the crowd at deep mid-wicket

W

to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Superb review from . Taylor can't believe it. He walks back with a smile on his face. Huge wicket for Pakistan as Taylor was looking murderous. "I didn't hit it," says Taylor to the gathered Pakistanis. But with the spike on RTS the decision was against him. literally bullied Sarfraz into taking the review and what a move it was. Full and around leg, Taylor moved across and had to bring his bat across to jam it, very close to his front pad and there was no deviation. Sarfraz did not appeal and he was more concerned of running out Taylor, who was out of the crease. However, had heard something and he made his skipper challenge the decision. RTS supported his call and ruled it in his favour. Ross Taylor c Sarfraz b 25(11) [6s-3]

4

to Tom Bruce, FOUR, picked the right delivery to play the lap - full toss on middle and leg, Bruce shuffles to off and scoops it very fine, almost went the distance, one bounce four

W

to Tom Bruce, out Bowled!! Hits timber and just stands his ground does . Swag! Good riposte from him. It was another low full toss and Bruce decided to charge down the wicket to this one, missed the drive and the ball hits the base of off-stump. Pakistan running away with the game. Sarfraz is pumped and is celebrating each wicket like a victory. Tom Bruce b 22(15) [4s-2 6s-1]

OT

to Santner, no run, that was a gamble from Sarfraz. The yorker around off, Santner clears his front leg to drive it through cover, no contact made and Sarfraz was up in an appeal. There were a couple of spikes on the RTS but none when the ball past the bat

4

to Santner, FOUR, brilliant timing. Just a flick of the wrists and the ball rocketed to the fence. Full and on the stumps, missed the yorker length did , Santner whips it wide of long-on and picks up a boundary

4

to Santner, FOUR, mid-off inside the ring and bowls a delicious full delivery outside off, Santner plays the perfect lofted off-drive over the fielder. One bounce and over the rope. Held the pose there for the cameras did Santner

D

Ashraf to Santner, 2 runs, dropped! That's the first bit of sloppy work from Pakistan today. Short of length delivery angled across off, Santner whips it towards long-on. Zaman does the hard work of reaching there, but the ball pops out as he slides across

6

Ashraf to Santner, SIX, Santner playing some golf now. Back of a length slanted across off, Santner stands deep in the crease and mows the pull over cow corner fence. Nice clean strike of the ball

4

Ashraf to Santner, FOUR, slower delivery outside off, Santner throws the kitchen sink at that and the outside edge flies over short third man, races away to the fence

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, short delivery into the body, Shehzad clouts the pull away to the deep square leg fence for four

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, ah so elegant! A full delivery on middle, and Fakhar Zaman just check-drives it between the stumps and the non-striker for four to long-on. Nobody moved

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, just a tad overpitched on off, and Shehzad leans into the checked on-drive for four. That raced away off the meat

4

to Shehzad, FOUR, back of a length delivery just outside off, a bit of width to free him arms, and he just creams that square of the wicket for four. Threads the in-field

4

Grandhomme to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, good length livery angling just outsi off, nothing wrong with that ball, but Zaman clears his front leg and carves that to the sweeper cover fence for four

W

Grandhomme to Shehzad, out Caught by Tom Blunll!! Time for a NZ review for caught behind! It is a fair livery. And that seems out to the naked eye. Snicko confirms that with a spike and the cision will be out. It has come off the glove and through to the keeper. Coming to the ball, it was a good length ball anlging into leg stump, and Shehzad tries a cute paddle on one knee and it just brushed the glove and settled in the keeper's mitts. NZ draw first blood! Shehzad c Tom Blunll b Grandhomme 19(18) [4s-3]

4

Grandhomme to Babar Azam, FOUR, back of a length livery but a bit of width outsi off, Babar Azam crunches that bottom-hand cut to ep backward point for four

6

Grandhomme to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, just a fraction short just outsi off, Zaman shuffles a tad and nails that pull aerially over the ep backward square leg for six. The umpire is confirming if that has gone over the rope and it has just ma it over the fence

4

Sodhi to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, full delivery on middle, driven through the line straight down the ground for a one-bounce four

W

Sodhi to Babar Azam, out Caught by Williamson!! It was a leg-break just a tad short on off-stump, turning away, and Azam read it. It was there to be hit, but he got the placement completely wrong. Ended up just carving it aerially into Williamson's cups at point. Soft dismissal, and Pakistan is two down. Babar Azam c Williamson b Sodhi 18(17) [4s-1]

4

Grandhomme to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, full ball just outsi off, taken on the full by Fakhar Zaman who advances down, makes room outsi off, and cross-bats that past the diving mid-off fielr to the long-off fence for four

4

Sodhi to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, full ball on off, Zaman hammer it down to the long-on fence for four, Sodhi was in the firing line and he just about managed to get his hands away

4

to Sarfraz, FOUR, full and just outside off, Sarfraz carves it inside-out to the sweeper cover fence for four

4

to Sarfraz, FOUR, tossed up outside off, very loopy, Sarfraz lofts it over extra cover for four

W

to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Tom Bruce!! An innings laced with agricultural shots from Fakhar comes to an end. Very full ball and a fraction wide outside off, Fakhar Zaman makes room again and lofts that to deep extra cover whilst on his knee, and Bruce comes around and takes a good low catch. The umpire has gone up to his mate upstairs; a referral to confirm a clean catch. Soft signal is out. They're zooming in and the fingers look like they are under the ball to the naked eye. Let us see what the third umpire thinks. Nothing conclusive to over-rule the soft signal. So the screen flashes OUT. Fakhar Zaman c Tom Bruce b 46(36) [4s-5 6s-1]

4

Grandhomme to Sarfraz, FOUR, just a fraction short just outsi off, Sarfraz shimmies down and gets a thick outsi edge that flies away to third man for four

4

Grandhomme to Haris Sohail, FOUR, another slightly short one at 103kmph, Haris Sohail has an age to pull that to the ep mid-wicket fence for four

W

to Sarfraz, out Caught by Ish Sodhi!! Flat carom ball outside off on an enticing length, that was shortened after Sarfraz came down the track and tried to hoick that over long-on and into another district, but he got a thick outside edge that lobbed into the cups of Sodhi who held onto a sitter. It was a sitter but there was a lot of spin on that, so that was a good catch. But then again, Sodhi knows a thing or two about revs on the ball. Sarfraz c Ish Sodhi b 29(21) [4s-3]

4

to Haris Sohail, FOUR, slower bouncer, leg-cutter, but wide outside off, Haris Sohail slaps it aerially to the deep extra cover fence for four

D

to Haris Sohail, no run, dropped by Sodhi! Short ball outside off, Haris Sohail pulls it to Sodhi at mid-wicket and it just pops out of his hand. A regulation chance dropped

4

to Haris Sohail, FOUR, on a length and right in the slot to swing, Sohail clears his front leg to get free swing of the arms and tonks it over mid-off, one bounce and into the fence

6

Sodhi to Umar Amin, SIX, short ball on middle, Umar Amin has enough time to pull it over deep square leg for six

D

Sodhi to Umar Amin, 2 runs, short again, and he tries a repeat of the pull, miscues it this time and slices it towards long-on and de Grandhomme drops it running in from the deep. That is two in two for New Zealand, very unlike them and both were relatively easy chances

6

Sodhi to Umar Amin, SIX, full delivery on middle, Umar Amin shimmies down and slices that off the outside half over long-off for six. Boult reaches out for it towards his left but it just evades him to go over the rope

6

Sodhi to Umar Amin, SIX, full delivery on leg, Umar Amin comes down the track and swat-flicks it flat over deep mid-wicket for six! What an over this is turning out to be!

W

Sodhi to Umar Amin, out Caught by de Grandhomme!! Leg-break on a length outside off, Umar Amin premeditates the shimmy down the track again and drags it with a flat lofted slog-sweep to long-on where de Grandhomme redeems himself for that drop with a regulation catch. Umar Amin c de Grandhomme b Sodhi 21(7) [6s-3]

4

to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, bouncer again angling into off, Faheem Ashraf nails that pull to the backward square leg fence for four. Can they get to 190?

W

to Faheem Ashraf, out Bowled!! Yorker at 138.7kmph, Faheem Ashraf is beaten for pace and doesn't get the bat down in time and it deflects off the pad and onto the stumps. The bails flash, ringing the death knell for Ashraf. Faheem Ashraf b 8(4) [4s-1]

4

to Aamer Yamin, FOUR, dropped by Tom Bruce! Low full toss on off, Aamer Yamin shuffles across and gets on one knee to pick that up to backward square leg where Bruce drops a sitter and lets it trickle through to the fence, adding insult to injury

6

to Aamer Yamin, SIX, length ball outside off, Aamer Yamin has enough room to free his arms and lofts it through the line over the long-on fence for six! Pakistan end with a flourish!
