12.3

Umar Gul to Styris, 1 wide, high bouncer well outside off stump. Wide.

12.3

Umar Gul to Styris, OUT, What a fabulous catch from Afridi running backwards towards long-on. Styris had found more elevation than distance and it looked to be landing safely. But Afridi had other ideas. He ran full pelt from mid-on and lunged in the end, four or five metres from the boundary, to take a very good catch. It's the dangerous Pakistan that has turned out today. And the tournament is so much better for it.

SB Styris c Shahid Afridi b Umar Gul 22 (33m 29b 0x4 1x6) SR: 75.86

New Zealand 73/5   SB Styris 22 (29b 1x6)
