ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final

New Zealand v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 6 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

7.1

Styris to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, and they've got the breakthrough! Taufel raises where Harper declined. Hafeez was down in position to sweep, moving outside off stump, and struck in front of middle. Fair enough, and that's timely to say the least

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Styris 32 (30m 21b 3x4 2x6) SR: 152.38

Pakistan 60/1   Imran Nazir 27* (22b 3x4 1x6)   SB Styris 0.1-0-0-1

12.2

Patel to Imran Nazir, OUT, had to go this time - tried to sweep a faster delivery, swooping very low in doing so, and was rapped straight in front of off

Imran Nazir lbw b Patel 59 (48m 41b 3x4 5x6) SR: 143.90

Pakistan 96/2   Younis Khan 2* (12b)   JS Patel 1.2-0-2-1

13.3

Vettori to Younis Khan, OUT, backed away to try to cut a straight one and got a thin edge through which McCullum snapped tidily

Younis Khan c †McCullum b Vettori 4 (22m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

Pakistan 104/3   Shoaib Malik 6* (4b)   DL Vettori 2.3-0-15-1

14.3

Bond to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone this time, though - driven flat on the up straight to Fulton at mid-off

Shahid Afridi c Fulton b Bond 6 (5m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Pakistan 111/4   Shoaib Malik 7* (5b)   SE Bond 3.3-0-29-1
