  Sialkot Stallions innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Imran Nazir c Hira b Azhar Mahmood 17 33 15 0 2 113.33
7.2 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 30/3
View dismissal Shakeel Ansar c Kitchen b Bates 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
1.4 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 2/1
View dismissal Haris Sohail c Vincent b Adams 12 23 19 1 1 63.15
6.3 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 30/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c Guptill b Hira 19 37 22 0 1 86.36
15.2 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 94/5
View dismissal Shahid Yousuf c & b Hira 39 26 25 3 3 156.00
13.6 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 87/4
View dismissal Qaiser Abbas c de Grandhomme b Adams 5 8 7 0 0 71.42
16.1 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 97/6
View dismissal Ali Khan run out (Vincent/†Hopkins) 19 19 13 0 2 146.15
19.3 from Bates, 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 124/9
View dismissal Naved-ul-Hasan b Mills 6 8 5 0 1 120.00
18.2 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 118/7
View dismissal Bilawal Bhatti c Azhar Mahmood b Mills 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
18.6 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 4-1-6-2 120/8

View dismissal MJ Guptill c Bilawal Bhatti b Naved-ul-Hasan 40 44 32 5 1 125.00
10.2 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 83/2

3.4 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 32/1
View dismissal Azhar Mahmood c Shoaib Malik b Sarfraz Ahmed 24 42 23 3 0 104.34
13.3 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 97/3

View dismissal C de Grandhomme c †Shakeel Ansar b Sarfraz Ahmed 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
13.6 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 97/4
