BALL BY BALL
15.6 - H Ali to R Taylor
WIDE! Munro does not get a fifty but New Zealand win! Anti-climax. Like what happened in Whangarei during the NZ-WIN ODI series, where Rovman Powell bowled a delivery down the leg side to Taylor, this time Hasan bangs it in short and high over the batsman's head. That time, Taylor was on 49, this time, he wanted to eke out a dot ball but Pakistan had other ideas. 1-0 up then, go New Zealand.
15.5 - H Ali to R Taylor
FOUR! Hat-trick of boundaries! Will Munro get to his fifty? Full and outside off, Taylor leans into this one and drives it through the covers for a boundary again! The scores are level!
15.4 - H Ali to R Taylor
FOUR! The result is the same! This is shorter in length and Taylor pounces onto it, pulling it wide of deep mid-wicket for consecutive boundaries!
15.3 - H Ali to R Taylor
FOUR! CLUNK! Full and outside off, Taylor comes forward a touch and whacks it over mid-wicket for a boundary! The target is into single digits now.
15.2 - H Ali to R Taylor
Outside off again, placed straight to cover.
15.1 - H Ali to C Munro
Outside off, crunched through the covers for a single.

14.6 - S Khan to C Munro
DROPPED! But a good effort from Umar Amin. A flighted ball outside off, CM gets down and mows it over mid-wicket. Looks like he has got enough but Amin leaps correctly at the fence. However, he is unable to hold onto it. Just a single. End of a terrific spell from Shadab - 4-0-18-1. 15 dots and just a four and a six.
14.5 - S Khan to C Munro
Another wrong 'un, Colin backs away and looks to cut but misses. Extra bounce as well.
14.4 - S Khan to R Taylor
The leg spinner now, pushed towards point for a single.
14.3 - S Khan to C Munro
It was there... a tossed up ball, on leg stump, Munro tried to slog but missed. The ball deflected off his pads to short third man. It was a googly. A leg bye taken.
14.2 - S Khan to C Munro
Comes down the track a touch and flicks it straight to short mid-wicket.
14.1 - S Khan to C Munro
A short ball on middle, tucked straight to square leg.
