Faheem Ashraf to Santner, FOUR runs, full on off stump, heaved over to the off side. Tries to play over cover but the thick edge takes it over short third man instead. Consolation runs
19.4
6
Faheem Ashraf to Santner, SIX runs, slogged! Back of a length on middle stump, stands tall and pulled off the back foot. Lands beyond long on
18.1
4
Mohammad Amir to Santner, FOUR runs, full on off stump, lifted over the bowler's head, and falls just short of the boundary. The captain's not happy, saying 'that's not the right length'. Got his front foot out of the way and hit well inside out
17.5
4
Rumman Raees to Santner, FOUR runs, overpitched on middle and leg, clipped gloriously off his toes, and races away to the cow corner boundary. Hit so well that wide long on had no chance!
17.2
4
Rumman Raees to Bruce, FOUR runs, well improvised! Full toss on middle stump that the batsman meets by shuffling across to the off side. Ramps it over the keeper's head. These shots are easy to play in 2018
15.4
6
Rumman Raees to Bruce, SIX runs, that's yuuuge! Full on off stump, and Bruce joins the party now. Gets his front foot out of the way and hits through the line. Lands beyond long on!
15.2
6
Rumman Raees to Taylor, SIX runs, heaved towards the leg side! Such beautiful connection. Full ball on his pads, and it's flicked with ease over the boundary. Great use of the wrists
14.3
6
Faheem Ashraf to Taylor, SIX runs, another one! Full and wide outside off, but such is Taylor's bat speed that he swings and it's connected well. Slogged over the leg side, and soars over the deep midwicket boundary
14.1
6
Faheem Ashraf to Taylor, SIX runs, thumped! And taken in the crowd! Short outside off, and it's smacked over cow corner. Walks forward slightly and sends this into the stands
13.6
4
Aamer Yamin to Bruce, FOUR runs, short ball on off stump, swivels and pulls along the ground. Ruins the over with the boundary, to be honest. Terrific shot that had four written all over it
11.3
4
Faheem Ashraf to Guptill, FOUR runs, good length outside off, backs away and uses his hands to purposely slash hard at it. Played uppishly, and soars over point
10.4
4
Shadab Khan to Guptill, FOUR runs, full outside off, tries to drive extravagantly but the legspin induces the outside edge. Thick edge, but goes along the ground and finds the gap between short third man and backward point. That's 2000 runs for Guptill in T20Is
9.3
6
Aamer Yamin to Guptill, SIX runs, soars into the crowd! That short length does not trouble a man with that sort of height. Pitches outside off, and angling right in, but he's quick to gauge the length. Smacked over long on
5.6
6
Faheem Ashraf to Guptill, SIX runs, full on off stump, and it's a biggie! Goes out of the stadium! We need to measure that maximum! Hit straight down the ground and over the bowler's head. Off the middle of the bat, and soars away into the night sky! Hits the top deck of the broadcaster's camera scaffold. We need a new ball! 108m
5.4
4
Faheem Ashraf to Kitchen, FOUR runs, good length wide outside off, stands tall and carves this behind square once again! Terrific shot, and goes past point's left on this occasion. No chance for third man either
5.2
4
Faheem Ashraf to Kitchen, FOUR runs, good length outside off, cut off the back foot, and beats point on this occasion. Starts off with the boundary
3.4
6
Rumman Raees to Guptill, SIX runs, good length on middle and leg, walks across to the off side and simply flicks this off his hips! Flies over deep backward square. What a terrific shot!
2.4
6
Mohammad Amir to Guptill, SIX runs, back of a length on middle, pulled rather unconvincingly off the back foot but has enough muscle behind that shot. Soars over the deep backward square boundary
1.2
4
Rumman Raees to Williamson, FOUR runs, full on leg stump, flicked off his hips past short fine leg. The fielder's giving it a chase, but there's no way he can catch up
