ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

New Zealand v Pakistan

New Zealand won by 1 run

3.5

Mohammad Sami to Ryder, OUT, he has picked out deep square leg! Looked like a good shot, a flick-chip to a length ball, but he sort of forgot the fielder placed there. Not a mis-hit, it went where he wanted it, but a miscalculation there

JD Ryder c Abdur Rehman b Mohammad Sami 7 (19m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

New Zealand 34/1   BB McCullum 18* (15b 3x4)   Mohammad Sami 1.5-0-21-1

6.1

Abdur Rehman to Guptill, OUT, and the frustration shows and gets Pakistan a wicket! Comes down the track, is not quite to the pitch of it, and mis-hits it towards long-on where Umar Akmal takes a superb diving-forward catch. he tries for the two-handed catch, can't reach it, but gets the right hand under it. Top stuff

MJ Guptill c Umar Akmal b Abdur Rehman 2 (9m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

New Zealand 41/2   BB McCullum 22* (19b 4x4)   Abdur Rehman 1.1-0-6-1

8.3

Abdur Rehman to BB McCullum, OUT, extra bounce! McCullum sweeps again, this time goes square, and the bounce takes the top edge that settles down the lap of deep square leg. Spinners exercising a choke hold here

BB McCullum c Mohammad Sami b Abdur Rehman 33 (36m 29b 5x4 0x6) SR: 113.79

New Zealand 55/3   LRPL Taylor 3* (4b)   Abdur Rehman 2.3-0-17-2

9.2

Mohammad Sami to Taylor, OUT, don't let Afridi touch you today, you might turn to gold! After a horrible opening spell, Sami comes back and strikes second ball. It's back of a length, gives him width, Taylor goes hard at it, and is not close to it, and gets a fine outside edge

LRPL Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 3 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

New Zealand 58/4   DL Vettori 2* (2b)   Mohammad Sami 2.2-0-22-2

14.4

Shahid Afridi to Styris, OUT, played on! Pakistan pull NZ back again. It's Afridi's pace again. No niceties such as flight and spin. Just fired it in around off, Styris looks to run it down, and gets the bottom edge onto the stumps

SB Styris b Shahid Afridi 21 (18m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 123.52

New Zealand 98/5   DL Vettori 19* (17b 1x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 2.4-0-26-1

16.4

Shahid Afridi to Hopkins, OUT, lovely bowling, flights this one up, speed in the late 80s, Hopkins sees this is the only ball he can hit, and slog-sweeps, gets a top edge and holes out to deep midwicket

GJ Hopkins c Abdur Rehman b Shahid Afridi 2 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

New Zealand 104/6   DL Vettori 23* (22b 1x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 3.4-0-28-2

19.5

Saeed Ajmal to NL McCullum, 1 run, OUT, hit to long-off, and Vettori sacrifices his wicket going for a non-existent second

DL Vettori run out 38 (45m 34b 1x4 2x6) SR: 111.76

New Zealand 127/7   NL McCullum 6* (8b)   Saeed Ajmal 3.5-0-21-0
