22 September 2007 (20-over match)

Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, good start, planting on a good length outside off and that carried through with some good pace - the batsman failing to connect, luckily for him really


Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, stands tall and delivers one which steeples in from just outside off and defended on the back foot


Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, tries to straight pull off the back foot, but mistimes the ball and it crashes into the ground in front of off


Umar Gul to Fulton, 2 runs, straight half-volley, brandished through mid-on with a lovely pick-up off the legs, and a good call to come back for the second


Umar Gul to Fulton, no run, outside off, better length, and though Fulton thinks of driving, he checks his shot into the covers


Umar Gul to Fulton, 1 run, on leg, easily played off the knee to the man at deep square; not quite where the bowler was aiming for, but he will be happy with an economical over

New Zealand 78/2   Umar Gul 1-0-3-0

Umar Gul to Styris, OUT, outside off, Styris lifts up off the bottom of his bat but can't clear the cover boundary - the ball goes up straight and back down into the hands of Sohail way inside the rope

SB Styris c Sohail Tanvir b Umar Gul 18 (17m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 150.00


Umar Gul to Fulton, 2 runs, a mishit, too, from Fulton - straight down the ground


Umar Gul to Fulton, OUT, two in three balls now for Gul as Fulton, standing straight, doesn't get over the ball and pops a straightforward catch to cover

PG Fulton c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 10 (12m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66


Umar Gul to McMillan, no run, greets him with a bouncer, McMillan ducking under, unbothered


Umar Gul to McMillan, FOUR, beat third man this time


Umar Gul to McMillan, no run, good delivery to round off an excellent over, beating the bat on its way through

New Zealand 91/4   Umar Gul 2-0-9-2

Umar Gul to Oram, 1 run, stays over the wicket, pushing across the left hander who plays with a straight bat off the back foot


Umar Gul to Taylor, no run, driven out to mid-off, a dab really, and they shuffle through immediately


Umar Gul to Taylor, 1 run, nipping in at the right hander, played down off the back foot and a quick single is a risky one too, as he was nearly run out at the non-striker's end. Direct hit would have had him gone


Umar Gul to Oram, no run, flings down a bouncer that gets up around the upper chest region, Oram swaying slightly backward, enough for the ball to travel past


Umar Gul to Oram, no run, round the wicket, angling in from quite wide too, a good yorker which is well dug out


Umar Gul to Oram, OUT, round the wicket again, angling in, with some lift too, and Oram's would-be carve over mid-on takes a big snick through to Akmal

JDP Oram c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 1 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

New Zealand 106/6   Umar Gul 3-0-11-3

Umar Gul to Taylor, no run, pushed right up there, straight, no room to do anything but defend


Umar Gul to Taylor, 1 run, right up there again, but well worked out to long off for a single


Umar Gul to Bond, 1 run, on off, dragged a touch short, worked out well off the back foot to a wideish third man


Umar Gul to Taylor, no run, good yorker, dug out to cover, and both batsmen set off, shuffle two or three yards, and then run back


Umar Gul to Taylor, 1 run, full again - we've seen Brett Lee find success with his full deliveries this tournament - and the batsmen can only find a single to cover


Umar Gul to Bond, 1 run, driven out to extra cover - firmly enough, but straight to the fielder

New Zealand 120/7   Umar Gul 4-0-15-3
