ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 24th match, Group A

New Zealand v Pakistan

New Zealand won by 110 runs

45.6

Umar Gul to Oram, no run, 145.6 ripper from Gul, Oram had no clue about this one as it struck him high on the pads after straightening from back of a length, too high, thinks umpire Harper

New Zealand 210/6   JDP Oram 0* (1b)

47.1

Abdur Rehman to Oram, 2 runs, comes forward and drives wide of long off

47.2

Abdur Rehman to Oram, no run, worked back to the bowler off the front foot, it was very full on the stumps

47.3

Abdur Rehman to Oram, FOUR, Pakistan have fallen apart in these death overs, it was a full toss, Oram came down the track to gain momentum and lifted it wide of deep midwicket who did not help by letting the ball through

47.4

Abdur Rehman to Oram, 1 wide, fired wide down the leg side, actually Oram earned it by getting the legs out of the way

47.4

Abdur Rehman to Oram, 1 run, misses out on another full toss on the pads, gets too far down leg and eases it to long on

47.6

Abdur Rehman to Oram, SIX, Oram finishes the over on a high, backs away down the leg side, Rehman gives it some air at this moment, of all times, and Oram lifts it over long off for maximum

New Zealand 253/6   JDP Oram 13* (6b 1x4 1x6)

49.1

Abdur Rehman to Oram, SIX, Oram from the other end, no respite for Pakistan, Afridi persists with Rehman, and Oram smashes it high over the long on boundary

49.2

Abdur Rehman to Oram, SIX, and another one, I have lost count, New Zealand have too, they are just hitting them one after the other, Pakistan haven't even bothered to count, lifted high over long off who thought he had a chance initially, but it beat him by some 20 feet

49.3

Abdur Rehman to Oram, OUT, Oram departs now, it doesn't matter, he has played his part, went for another maximum over long on, but this time it wasn't monstrous enough, and settled into the fielder's hands

JDP Oram c Umar Gul b Abdur Rehman 25 (23m 9b 1x4 3x6) SR: 277.77

New Zealand 295/7   JDP Oram 25 (9b 1x4 3x6)
