Pakistan in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v Pakistan

New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)

17.2

Mills to Saeed Ajmal, 1 run, back of a length on middle and off, the batsman stays back in the crease and works it square for one

17.6

Mills to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, another one bites the dust. Ajmal is not the best batsmen going around and I am surprised he was sent in ahead of Akhtar in the first place. He may have got a rough decision here, but he was playing a ridiculous shot to a back of a length ball outside off, trying to work it across the line with an angled bat. The shot was so poor its unlikely he could have made any contact with it. But he's given out. Replays are awaited. Late confirmation from the television commentators that the decision is lbw and not caught as was initially implied.

Saeed Ajmal lbw b Mills 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 112/9   Saeed Ajmal 1 (2b)
