Pakistan won by 95 runs
3 March 2013 (20-over match)

Abbott to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, length ball on off, swings a touch in and the batsman just plays a beautiful on drive to power that one through midwicket, with some timing

Pakistan 4/0   Nasir Jamshed 4* (3b 1x4)   KJ Abbott 0.3-0-4-0

Tsotsobe to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, gets some width outside off and he flays at that one, steering it over point for a one-bounce four. The third-man made a diving effort to get close to that

Pakistan 8/0   Ahmed Shehzad 4* (2b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 0.2-0-4-0

Abbott to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, too straight, he goes across the line and slams this past the outstretched hands of short midwicket

Pakistan 16/0   Nasir Jamshed 11* (9b 2x4)   KJ Abbott 1.2-0-10-0

Abbott to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, pitches it up and Shahzad smashes it back towards the bowler, Abbott did well to stay away from the ball and it goes to the boundary in no time

Pakistan 21/0   Ahmed Shehzad 9* (7b 2x4)   KJ Abbott 1.5-0-14-0

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, veers it towards the pads and Hafeez gets inside the line and turns it past short fine leg for a boundary, good timing there.

Pakistan 35/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (4b 1x4)   RK Kleinveldt 0.3-0-5-0

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, this one is not short enough, but the batsman stays in the crease and pulls it over midwicket for couple of bounces and then to the boundary

Pakistan 41/1   Mohammad Hafeez 9* (9b 2x4)   CH Morris 0.2-0-5-0

Morris to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, now he shuffles across the crease and flicks the fuller length delivery past short fine leg for boundary. Expensive start for Morris

Pakistan 52/1   Ahmed Shehzad 25* (12b 3x4 2x6)   CH Morris 1-0-16-0

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, floats it up, but gives a lot of width. The batsman cuts it past point, not very hard, but just with an open face and bagful of timing

Pakistan 56/1   Mohammad Hafeez 14* (13b 3x4)   RJ Peterson 0.2-0-4-0

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, he was waiting for the short of length stuff, gets into position early and pulls it to deep backward square leg. Two fielders converge, slide and dive, but both miss it

Pakistan 69/1   Mohammad Hafeez 26* (18b 4x4 1x6)   RK Kleinveldt 1.2-0-11-0

Kleinveldt to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, moves outside leg stump and tennis forehands that one to deep midwicket boundary

Pakistan 74/1   Ahmed Shehzad 30* (14b 4x4 2x6)   RK Kleinveldt 1.5-0-16-0

Tsotsobe to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, another slower delivery outside off, the batsman waits for it and just opens the face to run it past a diving backward point fielder

Pakistan 79/1   Ahmed Shehzad 35* (17b 5x4 2x6)   LL Tsotsobe 2.2-0-12-1

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, what power! what timing! He comes down the track and takes the ball on the full, and smashes it over extra cover

Pakistan 89/1   Mohammad Hafeez 34* (23b 5x4 1x6)   RJ Peterson 1.1-0-16-0

Morris to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, low full-toss, now the batsman thread the tiny gap between short fine and backward square leg. The deluge continues

Pakistan 103/1   Ahmed Shehzad 44* (22b 6x4 2x6)   CH Morris 1.1-0-20-0

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, oh wow, that just looked like a defensive steer towards backward point, but that beats the two fielders placed there to perfection and scoots to the boundary

Pakistan 110/1   Mohammad Hafeez 47* (28b 6x4 2x6)   CH Morris 1.5-0-27-0

Ontong to Umar Akmal, FOUR, Umar gets a short ball on the leg stump and he goes down on his knees and swivels it past short fine for a boundary

Pakistan 117/2   Umar Akmal 4* (1b 1x4)   JL Ontong 0.3-0-5-0

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, flat, quick, short, outside leg. It just needed to be sent to the boundary and that's what Hafeez does with a ferocious pull

Pakistan 124/2   Mohammad Hafeez 54* (31b 7x4 2x6)   JL Ontong 0.5-0-12-0

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, and another one goes past short fine. It was in the air but it was away from the fielder too. Hafeez went down on his knee even before the bowler bowled and slapped it past the fielder

Pakistan 129/2   Mohammad Hafeez 59* (33b 8x4 2x6)   LL Tsotsobe 3.1-0-22-1

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, and another one sent to cow-corner. He is loving it today. This one was slower and he comes down the pitch and smokes it to that area again

Pakistan 153/2   Mohammad Hafeez 78* (40b 9x4 4x6)   JL Ontong 1.5-0-31-0

Abbott to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, slower delivery short of length on off stump, Malik moves outside leg and ramps it over the backward point fielder for more runs

Pakistan 165/3   Shoaib Malik 6* (3b 1x4)   KJ Abbott 2.4-0-28-0

Kleinveldt to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, spots the slower ball early and clubs it with awesome power towards cow corner. Davids gets and gets a hand to it, but the momentum on the ball carries it through

Pakistan 180/6   Shahid Afridi 8* (7b 1x4)   RK Kleinveldt 3.4-0-26-2

Abbott to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, slower delivery on off, it is a low full toss and Afridi loves it. He bludgeons this over the bowler's head for a one-bounce four

Pakistan 185/6   Shahid Afridi 13* (9b 2x4)   KJ Abbott 3.1-0-35-0

Abbott to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, bowls it full and fast on off stump, but Afridi gets and inside edge fine on the leg side. The short fine leg fielder seems to have it covered but he makes a hash of it while going for a slide

Pakistan 189/6   Shahid Afridi 17* (10b 3x4)   KJ Abbott 3.2-0-39-0
