Pakistan tour of New Zealand, 1st ODI: New Zealand v Pakistan at Wellington, Jan 22, 2011
New Zealand won by 9 wickets (with 196 balls remaining)
22 January 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)
19.5

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, 140 kph bouncer from Bennett, should he have been attacking the stumps? Even Afridi managed to let that go. Strange things happening at gully - Ryder runs in a good 5 metres and positions himself at a catching position when the bowler is in his run up. That's not allowed, I'm sorry. Very poor sportsmanship. The batsman could not have seen him. This was not just a walk in.

19.6

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, and an absolute jaffa to end the over. Afridi was not just squared up, he was cubed up as that nipped away and took off from a length. Not many batsmen would have managed to edge that. Afridi did not.,

Pakistan 57/5   Shahid Afridi 0* (2b)
20.2

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, and the armer that slides on menacingly. Afridi is late on the cut, and only just manages to get bat on it

20.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, fuller this time, Afridi comes forward and defends resolutely

20.4

21.4

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, short ball just outside off, another forced cut that finds the point fielder

21.5

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, Bennett suggests he is going to land this further up, Afridi suggests he is getting ready to plonk the front foot forward. It ended up being back of a length and he ended just defending it after the half-cock movement forward

21.6

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, pacy delivery comes in with the angle, Afridi drops it to the leg side of the pitch and takes a quick single

Pakistan 66/5   Shahid Afridi 2* (9b)
22.1

22.2

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, very full on the stumps and Afridi manages to squeeze it out on the leg side for one

22.6

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Afridi is let off! You almost sensed he was eager to get to the striker's end and have a go at Vettori. He succumbed to the temptation the moment he got the chance, prancing down the track and looking to launch him straight out of New Zealand. He did not get to the pitch, and mishits a dolly at Oram running to his right from long on. And he fluffs it!

Pakistan 69/5   Shahid Afridi 4* (12b)
23.1

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, To say Afridi is living dangerously would be an understatement. Looks to flick a length ball from outside off. And gets a leading edge. That flies over the covers. And somehow clears the fielder running back

23.2

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, beaten outside off as he looks to cut a short ball outside off

23.3

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, cherish this rare moment, it is an Afridi leave outside the off stump, on line. He actually shouldered arms to a length ball after thinking of defending it

23.4

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, and again, we are living in privileged times here. Afridi chooses to let another one go through

23.5

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, no run, what happened there? Huge noise as the ball passes the outside edge, but there is no appeal. Replays are in, it wasn't from bat hitting ball - there was daylight between the two. A smile on McCullum's face - credit to NZ for not appealing for that one.

23.6

Bennett to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Afridi gets bat on ball, viciously cutting outside off for a single to third man

Pakistan 72/5   Shahid Afridi 7* (18b)
24.1

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Afridi goes back to a flat delivery from Vettori and cuts. He wants two, he is eager for strike. But can only get one

24.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run, full on off, Afridi unfurls a powerful drive straight to cover

24.4

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, the skidder, hurries into Afridi who stays back and manages to play to the off side

Pakistan 75/5   Shahid Afridi 9* (21b)
25.2

Southee to Shahid Afridi, 1 wide, bangs it short and sends it wide down the leg side

25.2

Southee to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, Afridi continues to find gaps with big mid-hits over the infield. This short ball stops on him and he doesn't time the pull at all. Gets it to land safely behind midwicket for a couple

25.3

Southee to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, fuller on off stump, Afridi quietly taps into the covers for a single

25.6

Southee to Shahid Afridi, no run, length ball at 137 kph on off stump and it is defended to the off side

Pakistan 82/5   Shahid Afridi 12* (24b)
26.3

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, The McCullums come together to nearly end Misbah's stay. Afridi drops it softly towards Nathan at cover for one, Misbah prances across and Nathan fires in the under-arm throw on the move. He misses the stumps by a whisker, giving Misbah just enough time to make his gorund.

26.5

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, no run

26.6

Vettori to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, short ball turning away from Afridi who backs away and whacks it through the covers. Fielded in the deep, but they get two

Pakistan 87/5   Shahid Afridi 15* (27b)
27.3

Southee to Shahid Afridi, no run, steady length outside off at 137 kph, Afridi looks to pinch a single to the off side, but finds point

27.4

Southee to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Southee takes Afridi out. Not with movement now, but with a little extra bounce and steady unrelenting lengths. This got slightly big on Afridi who looked to steer through the off side. Slightly reminiscent of Umar Akmal's dismissal, except that this went a little finer. Brendon McCullum leaps across and gobbles it mid-air. 200 ODI catches for him.

Shahid Afridi c †BB McCullum b Southee 15 (31m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 51.72

Pakistan 88/6   Shahid Afridi 15 (29b)
