Pakistan v New Zealand ODI Series - 3rd ODI

New Zealand v Pakistan

New Zealand won by 7 runs

11.3

Umar Gul to Redmond, OUT, gone! Redmond is Gul's 100th ODI wicket, short of a length on the off, comes down the track and tries to slap it past the bowler, gets a top edge and it lands safely into the palms of Aamer at third man

AJ Redmond c Mohammad Amir b Umar Gul 21 (52m 30b 3x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

New Zealand 72/1   BB McCullum 43* (39b 2x4 3x6)   Umar Gul 5.3-1-32-1

16.3

Saeed Ajmal to Guptill, OUT, the doosra does the trick, played for the spin there, trying to work it through the leg side, got a leading edge as it went the other way and Younis Khan at mid-off did well running to his left and taking a testing chance

MJ Guptill c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 8 (23m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

New Zealand 88/2   BB McCullum 51* (48b 3x4 3x6)   Saeed Ajmal 2.3-0-7-1

26.3

Shoaib Malik to McCullum, OUT, tame dismissal, turns in just a hint from a good length on the off, tries to close the face while playing the attempted drive to long-on, ends up scooping it straight back to Malik who makes no mistake

BB McCullum c & b Shoaib Malik 76 (109m 78b 6x4 3x6) SR: 97.43

New Zealand 138/3   LRPL Taylor 23* (30b 1x6)   Shoaib Malik 2.3-0-11-1

33.3

Shahid Afridi to Styris, OUT, run out, goes for the cut, gets an inside edge towards short fine, Taylor calls for the single, Styris responds but is caught off-guard as Butt targets the non-striker's end and scores a direct hit to find Styris just short of his ground

SB Styris run out 14 (20m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

New Zealand 164/4   LRPL Taylor 34* (53b 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 7.3-0-28-0

38.3

Saeed Ajmal to Taylor, OUT, trapped in front! Spun in sharply from a good length on the off stump, got forward and tried to turn it away towards midwicket, missed and was caught in line. Would have clipped leg stump

LRPL Taylor lbw b Saeed Ajmal 44 (78m 69b 0x4 1x6) SR: 63.76

New Zealand 187/5   DL Vettori 13* (14b)   Saeed Ajmal 6.3-0-26-2

39.4

Shahid Afridi to Broom, OUT, Caught in front! The googly does him in, shortish on the off and turned in sharply as he got all the way onto the back foot to whip it into the leg side, didn't pick it early and was caught high on the pads, would have gone on to hit middle and leg

NT Broom lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 188/6   DL Vettori 14* (16b)   Shahid Afridi 8.4-0-30-1

40.3

Saeed Ajmal to Vettori, OUT, the middle order is crumbling now, deceived by the quicker one. Round the wicket, hurls it flat and quick, opts to play from the crease into the leg side as it turns in, he misses and is caught right in front of middle

DL Vettori lbw b Saeed Ajmal 15 (33m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

New Zealand 190/7   JDP Oram 1* (3b)   Saeed Ajmal 7.3-0-28-3

42.3

Saeed Ajmal to Oram, OUT, Ajmal gets four! Short of a length on the off and drifts in towards middle, Oram is all the way back and misreads the line as he tries to work it into the leg side, is struck on the pads and the umpire had no hesitation

JDP Oram lbw b Saeed Ajmal 2 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

New Zealand 194/8   KD Mills 2* (7b)   Saeed Ajmal 8.3-0-29-4

43.6

Mohammad Amir to Mills, OUT, What a collapse! Short on the off, tried to slap it over mid-on, got it high on the bat and Ajmal ran a few paces to his left to pouch a straightforward chance

KD Mills c Saeed Ajmal b Mohammad Amir 4 (15m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

New Zealand 198/9   SE Bond 2* (3b)   Mohammad Amir 8-0-40-1

46.3

Mohammad Amir to Southee, OUT, gone! Fullish, made room, picked it up but scooped it straight to midwicket to end the innings

TG Southee c Abdul Razzaq b Mohammad Amir 4 (13m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

New Zealand 211/10   SE Bond 11* (11b)   Mohammad Amir 8.3-0-41-2
