Pakistan tour of New Zealand, 1st T20I: New Zealand v Pakistan at Auckland, Dec 26, 2010
New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)
26 December 2010 (20-over match)

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, And a big appeal for lbw straight away as he nips one into Hafeez from middle and off as he looks to flick and misses. That was sliding down the leg side though


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, Hafeez opens the face and nearly runs this all the way to the third man boundary. Flat drop-in pitch, small outfield - this is perfect for batting. Sliding save in the deep saves the boundary


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good length ball on off, brings the batsman forward into a defensive push


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, well, good balls have gone for six, so a rank bad ball going for four is something the bowlers will not mind. Southee slides this well down the leg side, with fine leg inside the circle and Hafeez helps it along to the fine leg fence with a neat glance. Didn't have much to do there.


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, better line, a foot outside off and Hafeez can't do much except steer it quietly square on the off side


Southee to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, Southee strikes with the slower ball. Bit of a leg cutter that at 118 kph, very smart and nifty stuff. Shehzad was fooled by the lack of pace and was feeling early. He was then fooled by the deviation and ended up getting a thin edge. Good take by McGlashan tumbling forward as it died on him

Ahmed Shehzad c †McGlashan b Southee 14 (9m 7b 2x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

Pakistan 58/2   TG Southee 1-0-7-1

Southee to Younis Khan, no run, fast and targeting the pads, worked off the legs towards square leg


Southee to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis' T20 return has not lasted very long. Southee drops this short and wide at 138 kph and Younis is a little late on the cut as he looks to intentionally go over the top. He gets a top edge that nestles in the sweeper's hands in the deep.

Younis Khan c Brownlie b Southee 2 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00


Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Southee is on a hat-trick. Three wickets for him in four balls. Whoddathunk. Pakistan's manic start is quickly unraveling here. Nice delivery, in the corridor of uncertainty, and a touch of away movement. Hafeez pokes fatally, and gets a thin edge through to McGlashan.

Mohammad Hafeez c †McGlashan b Southee 24 (35m 21b 4x4 0x6) SR: 114.28


Southee to Umar Akmal, OUT, Southee by South-west! Hat-trick! Four wickets in five balls for him. Umar Akmal walks back with a wry smile on his face. That was fast and angling into the right hander who was back in the crease. It hit the pads alright, but did it hit bat first? Was it sliding down the leg? Quick appeal from the bowler. The umpire took his time and gave it out.

Umar Akmal lbw b Southee 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Southee to Abdul Razzaq, no run, this match has changed completely. That's T20 for you. Southee bangs one in and gets it to whistle past Razzaq'a face at some pace. He weaves away. Wise decision.


Southee to Abdul Razzaq, no run, back of a length on off stump, Razzaq stays in the crease and defends to the off side

Pakistan 62/5   TG Southee 2-1-7-4

Southee to Abdul Razzaq, no run, Southee bowls a non-wicket-taking ball. Stop the press. Short and wide outside the off, and he lets it go


Southee to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, well, nothing unusual about this delivery. Southee has picked his fifth wicket in eight balls. Normal service. This one did nothing. Back of a length and a touch outside off, Razzaq stays leaden footed in the crease and gets a neat little outside edge. McGlashan is in business again.

Abdul Razzaq c †McGlashan b Southee 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, length ball outside off, Gul leaves


Southee to Umar Gul, 1 run, this one comes in with the angle and he works it off the pads for a single


Southee to Umar Gul, 1 wide, one-short. Not something Pakistan can afford right now. Gul doesn't ground the bat at the striker's end while taking the first run


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, full and fast, a foot outside off, brings Gul out into the push to the off side


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, that ball whistled across outside off on Boxing Day. Gul's flashing blade came down on it in the new year. And connected with thin air.

Pakistan 70/6   TG Southee 3-1-9-5

Southee to Fawad Alam, 1 run, fastish delivery angling across Alam who taps it into the covers for one.


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, length ball, searching for Gul's outside edge as he pushes at it and plays it to cover point


Southee to Umar Gul, FOUR, Southee continues to bully them. Bouncer now, Gul is completely beaten by the pace and top-edges the pull just past McGlashan. It lands inside the circle and still runs away for four. Rare, rare boundary


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, another short one, this time Gul is so late on it, he can't make contact. Clocked at 138 kph, that one


Southee to Umar Gul, FOUR, a confident shot after a long time. Gul expected a fuller one to follow the bouncers. Well, he was playing this shot regardless of what was coming. To his credit, he was well set in the crease for a swipe across the line and made good contact. That ruins Southee's figures a bit


Southee to Umar Gul, no run, that's the end of a bustling speel from Southee. 5 for 18 off 4 overs as Gul defends a length ball to the off side. Applause from the reasonably full ground at Eden Park.

Pakistan 84/6   TG Southee 4-1-18-5
