New Zealand won by 7 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)
25 February 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Butler to YK Pathan, 1 run, overpitched on the pads, Yusuf nudges it to short fine leg to get off the mark

India 62/5   YK Pathan 1* (1b)

Vettori to YK Pathan, no run, that was close, vociferous appeal for lbw from Vettori, that pitched on a length and hit him low in front of middle, umpire may have had doubts whether there was some bat involved as Yusuf defended


Vettori to YK Pathan, no run, cut away to point, straight to the fielder


Vettori to YK Pathan, 1 run, powerfully swatted to wide long-on, only a single for a lot of effort

India 63/5   YK Pathan 2* (4b)

NL McCullum to YK Pathan, SIX, poor start from Nathan, full toss on the pads, Yusuf swats that square leg for a six, not much effort behind that shot


NL McCullum to YK Pathan, SIX, Yusuf's giving a warm welcome for Nathan, clobbers that over wide long-on for a six this time


NL McCullum to YK Pathan, SIX, three in a row for Yusuf, he didn't quite get hold of it, slightly top-edged, goes high but long enough to clear the long-on boundary


NL McCullum to YK Pathan, OUT, Yusuf's goes, Jacob Oram does a repeat of Adam Voges' fantastic catch to get rid off Brendon McCullum in Sydney, it was wide outside off and fullish, Yusuf powered that to long-on, it rocketed towards the boundary but Oram manages to catch it just inside the boundary rope, he was going to go across, so he tossed the ball in the air, came back into the field of play, steadied himself and completed the ctach

YK Pathan c Oram b NL McCullum 20 (7m 8b 0x4 3x6) SR: 250.00

India 82/6   YK Pathan 20 (8b 3x6)
