Pakistan in New Zealand ODI Series - 1st ODI

New Zealand v Pakistan

New Zealand won by 9 wickets (with 196 balls remaining)

0.4

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good delivery, angles into middle and off and nips into Hafeez at 128 kph. Hafeez is neither forward nor back, but keeps it out

0.5

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, too straight, but Hafeez misses out as he looks to flick. Hits him on the pads, safely down the leg side

0.6

Franklin to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, well, well, what happened there? Full length ball on off stump, Hafeez pressed across to defend, but there was a small gap between bat and pad, it squeezed through it, possibly off the inside edge, but ballooned and died on McCullum who dived forward and could not scoop it in time. Was there an edge?

Pakistan 5/0   Mohammad Hafeez 0* (3b)

1.5

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, on Hafeez's pads this time, and for the second time he's missed out on an easy scoring opportunity

1.6

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, strong finish to the over. The perfect away-going delivery, slants in from a touch wide of the crease, lands on a length and straightens, squaring up the batsman and taking the outside edge. It went straight down and ran towards point

Pakistan 7/0   Mohammad Hafeez 0* (5b)

3.1

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, Southee holds the length back outside off, Hafeez opens the face and drops it to the off side

3.2

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, goes fuller, invites the drive, but doesn't get the deviation this time. Hafeez middles the shot this time, but straight to mid off

3.3

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, loud appeal for lbw as Southee scrambles the seam and somehow gets it to jag back into Hafeez, who moves his front foot a mile across and then is in trouble as he looks to get the bat around to the ball. He managed to get an inside edge onto the pads though, that saved him.

3.4

Southee to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Southee has outdone Hafeez with a lovely bit of bowling here. Out-thought and outdone. After getting the previous ball to nip in, he gets this one to dart away from just outside off. Perfect length too, Hafeez stayed on the back foot and tentatively dangled the bat at it, mostly in hope. It took the edge and nestled in McCullum's gloves.

Mohammad Hafeez c †BB McCullum b Southee 0 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 7/1   Mohammad Hafeez 0 (9b)
