ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 17th match, Group A

Canada v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 46 runs

3.1

Osinde to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Given out and Hafeez goes for UDRS. LBW. It landed on a good length outside off stump and moved in to hit the pad above the knee roll in front of leg and middle stump. The height was in question. And would it have hit the leg stump? Hawk eye says it would have clipped the top of the leg stump. And that has been given out.

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Osinde 11 (16m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Pakistan 16/1   Ahmed Shehzad 3* (8b)   H Osinde 1.1-0-9-1

8.5

Baidwan to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, And he has imploded. The adrenalin was kicking in. He tries to heave this delivery on the up and over mid-on but couldn't clear. Gordon dived forward to take a good low catch.

Ahmed Shehzad c Gordon b Baidwan 12 (48m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.17

Pakistan 42/2   Kamran Akmal 9* (19b 2x4)   HS Baidwan 0.5-0-4-1

12.5

Baidwan to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis trapped lbw. He charges up to Kamran, has a chat, and asks for UDRS. It was a full delivery on the middle, tilting in towards middle and leg. Younis played all around it and would have lost the leg stump. Three down and wobbling. What a start this by Canada.

Younis Khan lbw b Baidwan 6 (17m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Pakistan 55/3   Kamran Akmal 13* (30b 2x4)   HS Baidwan 1.5-0-11-2

15.3

Rizwan Cheema to Kamran Akmal, OUT, 67 for 4. The minnows are mincers. It was a short of length delivery and there was some width on it but Kamran cut it straight to backward point. The shot was on but the execution was poor. Kamran mutters to himself as he drags himself off the park.

Kamran Akmal c Kumar b Rizwan Cheema 16 (66m 38b 2x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

Pakistan 67/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 3* (8b)   Rizwan Cheema 1.3-0-7-1

34.6

Balaji Rao to Umar Akmal, OUT, that's gone, Balaji has his man after lots of effort, it was bowled shorter, flatter, Umar went on the back foot looking for the turn, there wasn't any, it hurried on after pitching to strike him in front of middle stump, there is no doubt about that one, what a time to strike, Umar was looking to up the rate

Umar Akmal lbw b Balaji Rao 48 (77m 68b 4x4 1x6) SR: 70.58

Pakistan 140/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 26* (57b)   WD Balaji Rao 8-0-37-1

38.2

Balaji Rao to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, what have we here? Misbah is gone, but what a way to depart, it was going straight down the leg side, Misbah decided to have those fine tickles, but this time it was the finest of them, and settled into Bagai's gloves, lovely anticipation from the keeper

Misbah-ul-Haq c †Bagai b Balaji Rao 37 (104m 68b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.41

Pakistan 165/6   Shahid Afridi 14* (9b 2x4)   WD Balaji Rao 9.2-0-46-2

40.5

Rizwan Cheema to Shahid Afridi, OUT, dear me, Afridi has given it away, not for the first time, not for the last, it was a wayward full toss wide outside off stump, Afridi reached out and went swinging wildly at it, and the chance was happily swallowed at backward point, Canada are delighted

Shahid Afridi c Kumar b Rizwan Cheema 20 (21m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 117.64

Pakistan 181/7   Abdul Razzaq 8* (7b 1x4)   Rizwan Cheema 4.5-0-33-2

41.1

Hansra to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, huge wicket, Hansra roars, tossed up on middle stump, Razzaq wanted to flick it from the crease, played all around it in the end, flicking across the line, that is dead plumb, Razzaq is a goner, two more to go, can Pakistan get past 200?

Abdul Razzaq lbw b Hansra 8 (12m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 181/8   Umar Gul 0* (1b)   AS Hansra 3.1-0-23-1

41.4

Hansra to Wahab Riaz, OUT, Balaji it is at slip, and he has somehow managed to hold on to this outside edge, between his legs, it was there for the drive, he went for the drive, the edge flew to Balaji who grabbed at it twice, but it was destined to settle between his thighs as he went down, remember Tariq Iqbal, the Kenya keeper 'catching' Brian Lara in the 1996 World Cup, it was that kind of 'catch'

Wahab Riaz c Balaji Rao b Hansra 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 181/9   Umar Gul 0* (1b)   AS Hansra 3.4-0-23-2

42.6

Baidwan to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, that will do, full and on the stumps, Canada's version of Malinga if you please, Ajmal plays all over it, and the ball thuds in to the off stump, Pakistan fall well short of 200 in the end

Saeed Ajmal b Baidwan 0 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 184/10   Umar Gul 2* (4b)   HS Baidwan 7-1-35-3
