Champions League Twenty20 - Qualifying Pool 1

Auckland v Sialkot Stallions

Auckland won by 6 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)

3.4

Bilawal Bhatti to Vincent, OUT, there's the wicket Sialkot desperately needed, Vincent once more take a step down the track looking to launch the ball over covers, gets a thick edge through to the waiting third man

L Vincent c Qaiser Abbas b Bilawal Bhatti 20 (16m 16b 3x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

Auckland 32/1   MJ Guptill 9* (6b 1x4)   Bilawal Bhatti 1.4-0-11-1

Naved-ul-Hasan to Guptill, OUT, Guptill's innings is over, that wasn't a great delivery, short ball that is powerfully pulled by Guptill, for a moment I thought that was another boundary, but Guptill had perfectly picked out the man at deep square leg, he didn't have to move to collect that

MJ Guptill c Bilawal Bhatti b Naved-ul-Hasan 40 (44m 32b 5x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

Auckland 83/2   Azhar Mahmood 18* (14b 3x4)   Naved-ul-Hasan 1.2-0-12-1

13.3

Sarfraz Ahmed to Azhar Mahmood, OUT, short and very wide, and that is slammed straight to short cover, Mahmood throws it away there, a hit-me delivery and he hits it right to the fielder, that would have been called a wide if he let it go

Azhar Mahmood c Shoaib Malik b Sarfraz Ahmed 24 (42m 23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.34

Auckland 97/3   AK Kitchen 8* (10b)   Sarfraz Ahmed 2.3-0-22-1

13.6

Sarfraz Ahmed to de Grandhomme, OUT, no longer as straightforward for Auckland, a terrific ball that rears up, finally gets the outside edge, de Grandhomme was beaten the first two deliveries, the third time he nicks it through, and Auckland are 97 for 4, still Auckland ahead but it isn't the cruise it seemed it would be

C de Grandhomme c †Shakeel Ansar b Sarfraz Ahmed 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Auckland 97/4   AK Kitchen 8* (10b)   Sarfraz Ahmed 3-0-22-2
