Commentary

  , Shahid Afridi to Taylor, 1 run, turned through midwicket as he stepped forward to a fuller ball on middle
  , Shahid Afridi to Williamson, 1 run, looped in on off stump, defended
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, 1 run, shortish and outside off, Williamson waits but should have waited just a bit more. Mistimes a pull to long-on
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Taylor, 1 run, stays in the crease against a flat delivery on middle and turns it through midwicket
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, 1 run, flighted on off stump, swiped to deep midwicket
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, 2 runs, gets down the track and has mistimed a chip over mid-on. Gets quite a lot of height on it and must have had a few flutters as Umar Akmal back-pedalled after it. Just about lobs him
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Taylor, 1 run, stays back to a flatter ball on off stump and Taylor tucks it through the vacant midwicket region. Zulfiqar has to race after it himself and keeps it to a single
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, 1 run, good length ball outside off, punched to long-off
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, FOUR, likes the fuller length as Taylor taps it down the ground and reaches fifty in pleasing fashion. It's not been his best innings, but it has had a lot of purpose. New Zealand have the platform now. Do they have the fuel down the order to blast off from it?
  , Mohammad Irfan to Williamson, 1 run, that gully isn't doing much help as Williamson is quite happy to wait for a shortish delivery to and use the open face to find deep third man
  , Mohammad Irfan to Williamson, no run, good length ball on off stump, defended at the bowler
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, 1 run, shortish on leg stump, tucked away to deep square leg
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, no run, lovely push to mid-off and he was almost ready to run with the shot before realising he had timed the ball too well to pinch a run
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, no run, taps the shortish ball outside off towards point
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, 1 wide, back of a length and wide outside off, Taylor is not keep on it
  , Shahid Afridi to Williamson, no run, slider from Afridi has Williamson in some trouble. Struck on the pads with him waiting for spin. Afridi appeals, but the umpire says it would have slid down leg. Pakistan have no reviews
  , Shahid Afridi to Taylor, 1 run, flighted on leg stump, pushed to long-on
  , Shahid Afridi to Taylor, no run, short and wide, Taylor cuts to point
  , Shahid Afridi to Taylor, no run, flighted on off stump, driven back at the bowler
  , Shahid Afridi to Williamson, 1 run, gets down the pitch and turns the good length ball outside leg to deep midwicket
  , Shahid Afridi to Williamson, no run, pushed back at the bowler
  , Mohammad Irfan to Williamson, 1 run, goes across outside off to tuck a good length ball into the midwicket region. Time for drinks
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, 1 run, short and a shade wide of off stump, but that's Taylor's staple as he cuts to deep point
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, no run, full and wide outside off, Taylor does not bother with it
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, FOUR, but he should have been at orthodox first slip for that to be a chance! The angle across the right-hander works for Irfan as Taylor defends tentatively. A healthy outside edge is taken, but it flies past the keeper's right
  , Mohammad Irfan to Williamson, 1 run, fuller ball outside off, Williamson gets back and across and slides it down to third man
  , Mohammad Irfan to Taylor, 1 run, shortish and outside off, Taylor pokes and gets a thick outside edge to deep third man
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Taylor, 1 run, tapped towards midwicket, which is vacant so there is an easy single on offer
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, 1 run, pushed through on middle and leg, Williamson nudges it to long-on
  , Zulfiqar Babar to Williamson, no run, stands up tall behind the flatter ball on off stump and pushes to extra cover
