Over 5.2 Haris Rauf bowls a good length delivery to Martin Guptill, out Bowled!! Backed away for the big shot, Rauf followed him with a pacy delivery that totally cramped the opener for room. Guptill missed the flick and it deflected off the pads onto the sticks. Rauf is pumped!

Over 8.2 Imad Wasim slips in a full toss to Daryl Mitchell, out Caught by Fakhar Zaman!! Mitchell once again went through with the stroke despite not really being in a great position for it. Not surprisingly, he mistimed it completely. 

Over 9.1 Mohammad Hafeez tossed up delivery to James Neesham, out Caught by Fakhar Zaman!! Goes across the line with this shot, but Hafeez has cleverly pulled his length back just a bit. That denies Neesham the desired leverage and Fakhar takes a fine running catch at deep mid-wicket.

Over 13.1 Hasan Ali bowls a good length delivery to Kane Williamson, out Williamson Run Out!!  Williamson was trying to sneak in a cheeky single, but Hasan swooped onto the ball, picked it up and then threw down the stumps at the striker's end 

Over 17.1 Haris Rauf bowls a good length delivery to Devon Conway, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Conway looking for the stylish flick, but the ball caught the inner half of the bat - high and down deep mid-wicket's throat

Over 17.3 Haris Rauf bowls a good length delivery to Glenn Phillips, out Caught by Hasan Ali!! Phillips spotted it early, swivelled across on the pull, struck it sweetly, but straight down deep midwicket's throat

Over 18.6 Shaheen Afridi bowls a slower one to Tim Seifert , out Caught by Hafeez!! Seifert was through with the swing far too early, the slower ball caught the outside haf of the bat and lobs for a simple catch to Hafeez at backward point.

Over 19.6 Haris Rauf bowls a slower one to Mitchell Santner, out Bowled! Santner backed away on the pull, was through with the shot tad too early, missed and the ball hits the top of the middle.
