  Pakistan innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Salman Butt c †BB McCullum b Bond 0 1 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 Salman Butt's comeback doesn't quite last long. Bondy has struck. It was a back-of-length delivery that moved away from the stumps and Butt was almost squared-up as he pushed at it and edged it behind. Fine delivery. 0/1
View dismissal Khalid Latif b Vettori 64 171 112 2 0 57.14
41.1 cleaned him up with the vicious arm-ball. It skidded on from the leg and middle, Latif was looking for the cut but only managed to stab it to the leg stump. Patient innings, whose value will probably only be known after New Zealand bat, comes to an end. Did he play too slowly? Or did he play a very good knock on this pitch? We just have to wait for the chase to find out. 184/6
View dismissal Younis Khan* c †BB McCullum b Bond 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
2.1 Bondy! Full delivery outside off stump, curves away, Younis chased it, going for a flamboyant square drive but only succeeded in edging it behind 0/2
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf run out (Guptill) 30 65 49 4 0 61.22
16.6 from Oram, Yousuf is run out. It was pushed towards cover point and they run across for the single. Guptill does a superb job, moving to his left , picks up the ball and fires in a direct hit at the non-strikers' end/. Gone! 57/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal b Vettori 9 20 18 0 0 50.00
23.3 what a lovely delivery. It was a tad quicker, landed on a length around the middle stump line, Umar tried to drive but the ball dipped on him before spinning past the blade to hit the off stump. 75/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Butler b Oram 70 57 50 4 3 140.00
38.2 Oh boy what has happened here. He moved outside off stump, fetched the full toss from well outside off and paddled it straight to short fine-leg fielder. But what an entertaining, yet responsible knock. Lovely mix of fun and work. 176/5
Kamran Akmal not out 67 52 43 5 4 155.81
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Styris b Butler 26 33 20 1 2 130.00
48.2 fullish delivery, in the slot, Razzaq goes for the big hit down the ground but skies it straight up towards cover. More elevation than distance. Styris came under the ball, juggled it a bit before holding on. Fine cameo from Razzaq. 270/7
View dismissal Umar Gul run out (Vettori/Butler) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
48.4 from Butler, Umar Gul is run out. It was pushed to cover and Akmal called him for a single but Gul couldn't get across in time to beat the throw 271/8

View dismissal BB McCullum b Umar Gul 21 33 27 4 0 77.77
7.4 And there we go. The first wicket has fallen. It was slightly short in length straightening outside off, McCullum tried to fetch it from there with a pull shot but dragged the ball on to the stumps. 30/1
View dismissal AJ Redmond lbw b Saeed Ajmal 52 127 91 6 0 57.14
29.3 Finally, Ajmal gets an lbw verdict in his favour. It was quicker, on the off stump line, skidding on straight, and Redmond missed the sweep and was hit on the off stump line. It would have crashed into the stumps. 119/5
View dismissal MJ Guptill b Umar Gul 4 4 9 0 0 44.44
9.2 Another fatal inside edge. It was a short of length delivery that skids on straight, Guptill was looking to defend but is late in getting the bat down, pushes it outside the line and it collides with the inside and ... timber! 34/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 0 1 5 0 0 0.00
10.2 the thickest of edges and he's gone! He fires it in outside off and angles it across the right-hander, Taylor chases it and shapes to carve it over extra cover but he gets a thick edge which thuds into Kamran's gloves 35/3
View dismissal SB Styris c sub (Imran Farhat) b Abdul Razzaq 5 20 17 0 0 29.41
15.1 Styris fan club would be disappointed. It was short in length and Styris pulled it high towards deep square-leg where Farhat (substitute) rushes to his left to pluck off a good catch 50/4
View dismissal DL Vettori* b Shahid Afridi 38 70 41 1 0 92.68
34.5 Afridi has broken through. It skidded away from Vettori who tried to sweep it but edges it back to the stumps 139/6
View dismissal JDP Oram b Abdul Razzaq 9 24 23 1 0 39.13
35.3 Yet another fatal inside edge from a New Zealand batsman. It was angling away from Oram who tries to force it on the up through covers but gets the big fat edge 139/8
View dismissal NL McCullum lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
34.6 Afridi .. whaddaplayaaa .. he did it with the bat and now doing the job with the ball. The slider this time, on the middle, looks to defend and is hit on the pad. The Hawk eye shows it missing leg and it might well be but when it struck him on the pad, it looked pretty ugly. you can understand why the ump gave that out 139/7
View dismissal IG Butler run out (Umar Gul) 4 9 7 1 0 57.14
37.2 from Abdul Razzaq, Butler is run out. Direct hit from Umar Gul. Good bye sir. It was pushed to left of mid-on where Gul swooped in on the ball and fires in a lovely throw. It has been referee upstairs and the verdict is out 144/9
SE Bond not out 4 15 9 0 0 44.44
View dismissal TG Southee lbw b Saeed Ajmal 1 4 7 0 0 14.28
39.2 All over. . It was the quicker one, skidding on rapidly towards the middle, moves past the attempted waft and nails him in front. . Pakistan won by 138 runs. Fine comprehensive win. 149/10
