James : "You would expect Boult Henry and Ferguson to bowl out after this Williamson over. Fill your boots now. "

Tasmeem: "Not a good bowling change from Williamson. Released a lot of pressure with that over. Now he is going for multiple boundaries as well. New Zealand needs a wicket and Boult should be back." --- And here he is.

19 off the last two overs.

End of over 36. 8 runs this over. 153/3 after 215 balls.

Well that worked out nicely for Pakistan.

Haris Sohail 24 (37b 1x4 1x6 ) KS Williamson 6-0-22-1
Babar Azam 57 (84b 5x4 0x6 ) more

Colin Munro with the ball. Wobbly seam bowling at best, long run-up cutters at worst. This is an invitation to Pakistan to take a risk or two.

End of over 34. 3 runs this over. 142/3 after 204 balls.
Babar Azam 56 (82b 5x4 0x6 ) LH Ferguson 6-0-28-1
Haris Sohail 22 (33b 1x4 1x6 ) more

Required rate is now 6.

Roshan: "Usually part time bowlers end up bowling one too many overs and the batsman catch up on their strike rate, so as long as Pak does not lose over the predictor is in their favor."

End of over 33. 3 runs this over. 139/3 after 198 balls.
Babar Azam 55 (79b 5x4 0x6 ) KS Williamson 5-0-19-1
Haris Sohail 20 (30b 1x4 1x6 ) more

Rida: "This match should be evidence of why more pitches need to favor bowlers. We've got a thrilling test match!"

John Geddam: "Is Kane bowling only because it's turning and not regularly?!... I mean.... He's doing a decent job than most other spinners" --- To be fair, John, Hafeez might have got away with that shot on another pitch.

Ash: "I think NZ can still take this home if they take couple of wickets here. For that fast bowlers need to bowl into the pitch, which hasn't happen."

Usman: "This is classic Pakistan. Most dangerous batsman? Not Williamson, not Taylor, not Latham, but Neesham and Grandhomme. Most dangerous bowler? Not Bout, but Williamson."

Drinks break. Thank goodness. Get all your breathing done, folks.

And that makes Babar Azam the second-fastest to 3,000 ODI runs - 68 innings. Amla got there in 57. Viv Richards in 69, and Greenidge, Kirsten, Dhawan, and Root all did it in 72.

Muhammad waqas: "70 to 80 runs partnership from this pair it would be match for PAKISTAN. Important one for team"

Saad: "Did Professor just run for bathroom break in the middle of a lecture?" --- The perks of not being a student is that he doesn't need permission

Abhijato: "Babar needs to play within himself today. People tend to criticise him for his slow strike rate, but this chase is custom-built for him to anchor with a classical knock out of an ODI in the 90s. If he does win it for his team, the tournament table is going to open up furthermore, and the fourth playoff spot's occupation will become as unpredictable as this Pakistan team.."

And that'll be drinks. All in all a decent recovery after Imam's wicket.

End of over 15. 8 runs this over. 64/2 after 90 balls.

Taha: "Babar haven't faced any ball since the 10th over! Wonder if he is getting itchy! "

Asking a batsman to choose between his centuries can be tough. But we can ask you in our poll, which was the better Lockie delivery: the yorker to Faf or the fearsome bouncer to Imam. Go, vote.

No square leg goes out. Backward short leg stays in.

Aooo: "I often wonder how the commentators on TV can talk endlessly on a thing no matter how trivial. I've been hearing them rant about Ferguson's strong buttocks for five minutes now!!"

Sri: "What is the DL score for Pak at the end of 20th over. Just in case it raining." --- 74 is par if they are two down. 89 if three.
