Champions League Twenty20 - Qualifying Pool 1

Auckland v Sialkot Stallions

Auckland won by 6 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)

1.4

Bates to Shakeel Ansar, OUT, Ansar is gone after a nervy stay, he wanted to pull a shortish ball from Bates, top-edges it and the ball swirls towards mid-on, easy take there, not a great start from Sialkot

Shakeel Ansar c Kitchen b Bates 1 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Sialkot Stallions 2/1   Imran Nazir 1* (3b)   MD Bates 0.4-0-0-1

6.3

Adams to Haris Sohail, OUT, Adams has struck, Sohail is dismissed just as it seemed that he was getting into some sort of groove after a miserable start, a soft dismissal as well, slapping the ball straight to Vincent at backward point, easy catch for him

Haris Sohail c Vincent b Adams 12 (23m 19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 63.15

Sialkot Stallions 30/2   Imran Nazir 17* (13b 2x6)   AR Adams 0.3-0-1-1

7.2

Azhar Mahmood to Imran Nazir, OUT, Sialkot are 30 for 3, and Auckland have the big wicket of Nazir, he charged out to this delivery and looked to launch the ball over the off side, gets a big top edge and the ball swirls towards short third man, Hira runs around from point and calmly takes a tough catch, great comeback this from Mahmood after that horror first over

Imran Nazir c Hira b Azhar Mahmood 17 (33m 15b 0x4 2x6) SR: 113.33

Sialkot Stallions 30/3   Shoaib Malik 0* (3b)   Azhar Mahmood 1.2-0-18-1

13.6

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, OUT, got him this time, a chip back to the bowler, Hira moves across to his left to latch on to that, Yousuf's cameo is over, slightly slower through the air, foxes the batsman

Shahid Yousuf c & b Hira 39 (26m 25b 3x4 3x6) SR: 156.00

Sialkot Stallions 87/4   Shoaib Malik 15* (18b 1x6)   RM Hira 2-0-12-1

15.2

Hira to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Hira gets his second, he has bowled well today, length ball into the pads, Malik looks to launch that over the long-off fielder, doesn't get the power, Sialkot lose a big wicket

Shoaib Malik c Guptill b Hira 19 (37m 22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 86.36

Sialkot Stallions 94/5   Qaiser Abbas 3* (4b)   RM Hira 2.2-0-13-2

16.1

Adams to Qaiser Abbas, OUT, a stunning catch from Colin de Grandhomme, running back from mid-on and he takes a tumbling catch to end Qaiser Abbas' stay, Sialkot six down now, Abbas was looking to slog that one, hit on the bottom of the bat, the ball swirls towards long-on, de Grandhomme has plenty of ground to make, the ball is floating away from him all the time, does extremely well to keep his eyes on it and pouch it, top work

Qaiser Abbas c de Grandhomme b Adams 5 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Sialkot Stallions 97/6   Ali Khan 1* (2b)   AR Adams 3.1-0-21-2

18.2

Mills to Naved-ul-Hasan, OUT, Naved opts for placement over power, looking to clip the ball to the leg side, it is of no use as he misses the slower one and the ball cannons into offstump

Naved-ul-Hasan b Mills 6 (8m 5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

Sialkot Stallions 118/7   Ali Khan 15* (10b 2x6)   KD Mills 3.2-1-4-1

18.6

Mills to Bilawal Bhatti, OUT, another swipe attempted, the bat flies out of Bhatti's hand, and he can't get any sort of timing on the big swing, the ball pops up toward Mahmood at midwicket, he has to go collect his bat from square leg, Mills ends with outstanding figures of 4-1-6-2

Bilawal Bhatti c Azhar Mahmood b Mills 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sialkot Stallions 120/8   Ali Khan 16* (11b 2x6)   KD Mills 4-1-6-2

19.3

Bates to Ali Khan, 1 run, OUT, following the batsman again, flicked towards deep backward square leg, down to Lou Vincent, who fires in a flat throw, it was quite wide of the stumps, Hopkins had to stretch to collect but still had time to run out the batsman, Vincent high fives a bunch of excited youngsters in the stands to celebrate the wicket

Ali Khan run out 19 (19m 13b 0x4 2x6) SR: 146.15

Sialkot Stallions 124/9   Sarfraz Ahmed 1* (1b)   MD Bates 2.3-1-11-1
