Over 11.4 Adam Milne bowls a good length delivery to Mohammad Hafeez, out Caught by Southee!! Hafeez threw his bat on the cut and hit in the air to point. Southee shows stunning reflexes and flings to his left to snatch a beauty.

Over 14.2 Colin de Grandhomme bowls a good length delivery to Asif Ali, out Caught by Glenn Phillips!! Asif Ali hoicks off the inside half through midwicket. The miscue went low and was dying in front of deep midwicket, but Phillips is able to cover good ground and then dive forward with both hands. 

Over 17.4 Ish Sodhi tossed up delivery to Sarfraz Ahmed, out Caught by Corey Anderson!! Sarfraz could manage was the toe-end. Corey Anderson this time, moving across swiftly to his right from long-off, keeping his eyes on the ball and completing the catch.

Over 17.6 Ish Sodhi tossed up delivery to Faheem Ashraf, out Shoaib Malik Run Out!! 1 run completed. Ashraf works it in front of long-on.Malik charges down for the second and is a long way down before having to run all the way back. Anderson doesn't let him. He pounces on the ball, picks it up and fires the stumps
