Pakistan got their third breakthrough after Shaheen Afridi dismissed New Zealand Ross Taylor for 3 in the last of 9th over of their World Cup clash at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

New Zealand have lost both openers to 24/2 as Shaheen Shah Afridi removed Colin Munro with extra bounce. Shaheen removed opener Colin Munro (12) in the seventh over of the innings. 

It was an extra bounce from Shaheen and Munro flashes hard at a ball outside off stump and the ball races to Sohail in the first slips who takes a comfortable catch. 

Martin Guptill walked back to the pavilion after being bowled out by Mohammad Amir in the second over in Pakistan's World Cup clash against the Kiwis on Wednesday at Edgbaston.

It was the fast-bowler's first ball of the match. The first over was bowled by allrounder Mohammad Hafeez.

Kiwis were 44/3 by the end of the 10.3 over. TWM Latham joined skipper Kane Williamson after Ross Taylor got out.
