Commentary

Not the most memorable of debuts for Sialkot. Their top order really struggled to get going against Auckland's new-ball bowlers, who got the ball to nip around and bounce as well. Shahihd Yusuf's cameo helped them reach 130, an underwhelming score, but at least something for the bowler to try their luck with. It wasn't enough though, as each of Auckland's top four made at least 20, and ensured they got home with plenty to spare.

I like this one from Oliver: "He swept Raza Hasan for six? Well swept Kitchen."

Shoaib Malik: "I think we were one bowler short. Conditions were tough, the way our batters batted, I think 130 was a very good total. we are very excited, great opportunity for all of us. I think we could have bowled well."

Gareth Hopkins: "It's our first win overseas. We looked at it, we've been in the winter, we spent two weeks here, it helped us not just with the altitude, but with the conditions."

Man of the Match is Kyle Mills: "I've been in good rhythm over the last few months, good conditions to bowl here. I didn't wake up in the bowler expecting to do something like that (most economical figures in CLT20). I was mindful of just bowling on off stump and seeing what the wicket could do for me."

Njr1330: "what about a batting line-up of Cook, Mustard, Onions, (Cec) Pepper, Lamb, Rice, Wiener, Pringles (Derek & Meyrick), Woodcock and Kitchen!" Good effort, though you might want to bat Onions a little lower in the order.

Right, day one of the qualifiers are done and dusted. Yorkshire and Auckland have won, Uva and Sialkot have lost. Day two tomorrow. Join us then. Thanks for all the puns. G'night!

Ali Khan to Kitchen, SIX runs, a stylish way to finish things off, Auckland get their first win in the CLT20, and the big win will also boost their net run rate, the game ended when Kitchen launched a length ball cleanly over wide long-on, the ball lands in the stands, Kitchen pumps his fist in joy, Auckland are cock-a-hoop

Raza Hasan to Kitchen, SIX runs, six, length ball is swept by Kitchen, not with too much power, but it still clears the rope at deep square leg, it also clears the Auckland dug-out as the players they scrambled to get out of the way of that shot
