Pakistan in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v Pakistan

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

0.1

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, and a lively start for Pakistan as Franklin delivers a Christmas present - gentle wafting half-volley angling across and landing outside off, Hafeez leans out and creams it through the covers

0.2

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, better, Franklin holds it back a touch and Hafeez shoulders arms

0.3

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, straighter this time, Hafeez decides to push it straight and picks a single before mid off can intervene

0.4

Franklin to Shahid Afridi, no run, action from Afridi straight away! He looks to launch this out of Auckland and is looking out of Auckland after making contact with a straight heave. Not very good contact though, it runs off the inside half to mid on

0.5

Franklin to Shahid Afridi, 1 wide, Franklin lands this miles outside off and even an eager Afridi can't reach it. He lets it go. Wide called.

0.5

Franklin to Shahid Afridi, no run, Ho ho, what do we have here. A forward defensive from Afridi! Back of a length on middle and off, he stays in the crease and calmly blocks to the leg side

0.6

Franklin to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, full and wide half-volley at 130 kph, Afridi opens the face and steers it to third man for a single

Pakistan 7/0   JEC Franklin 1-0-7-0

15.1

Franklin to Umar Gul, no run, Gul looks to pull as one hurries in short of a length, with the angle. He misses though.

15.2

Franklin to Umar Gul, 1 run, fuller ball, on a length and Gul drives into the covers for a single

15.3

Franklin to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, Riaz gets a thick outside edge yet again, and picks a single to third man

15.4

Franklin to Umar Gul, 1 run, whoa, what happened there? Gul wanted to pull and was almost through with the shot when he realised it wasn't at all short enough. Ended up just tapping it high in the air towards square leg. Milne at midwicket seemed to be the one who wanted to take it, but Styris from fine leg made a late effort. He couldn't reach though. Single as it lands in between both

15.5

Franklin to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, wants to play the cut, and gets a thick outside edge to deep backward point for one

15.6

Franklin to Umar Gul, 1 run, drives the final ball to cover for a single to covers

Pakistan 101/7   JEC Franklin 2-0-12-0
