7.1

7.2

Shahid Afridi to Oram, 1 leg bye, sliding down, tries to lap it around the corner, misses but will pick up a leg bye

7.3

Shahid Afridi to Styris, no run, doesn''t time the paddle sweep well and the ball rolls towards leg slip region. Styris wants a single, unaware of how far the ball had gone, the slip rushes to the on side and threw to Akmal who broke the stumps but Styris had dived home by then. It needed a direct hit.

Shahid Afridi to Styris, no run, tries to cover drive the leg break but is beaten

7.5

Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, flicks from outside off to backward square leg region

9.3

Shahid Afridi to Oram, OUT, Afridi sends Oram back to the hutch. Oram charged down the track for the big hit but only succeeded in skying it straight up. Misbah ran back from extra cover to take a neat catch. New Zealand are wobbling here. 55 for 4.

JDP Oram c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 5 (12m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

9.4

Shahid Afridi to Styris, no run, huge shout for lbw. The skidder on the middle and leg. Styris lunged across, pushed his bat outside the line and ball tilted in to hit the pad. The umpire must have felt it would have missed leg stump

9.5

Shahid Afridi to Styris, no run, oh superb delivery. This one drifted in before turning away and Styris is beaten; he was shaping to work it to the on side but was surprised by the turn

9.6

Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, leans across to dab this through cover point

New Zealand 56/4   Shahid Afridi 2-0-3-1

11.1

Shahid Afridi to McGlashan, 1 run, almost cleaned him up with the yorker. Delivered like a seamer, it swung in late, past the hurried jab but some how, missed the stumps. I remember him taking out Steve Waugh in Australia once with a similar delivery.

11.2

Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, slightly short in length, cut away to backward point

11.3

Shahid Afridi to McGlashan, no run

11.4

Shahid Afridi to McGlashan, 1 run, slower, outside off stump, reverse swept towards short third man and Gul rushes across and dives full stretch to make a very fine stop.

11.5

Shahid Afridi to Styris, 2 runs, moves outside leg stump and lifts it to Fawad at deep cover

11.6

Shahid Afridi to Styris, 3 runs, flighted legbreak and Styris lofts it high and to the right of long-on. The fielder rushes back and to his right to prevent the boundary

New Zealand 72/4   Shahid Afridi 3-0-11-1

13.1

Shahid Afridi to Franklin, 1 run, slow through the air, full on the middle, turned to deep midwicket

13.2

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, FOUR, quicker, skidding on to the middle and leg, flicked along the ground and straight to Shahzaib at short fine-leg who makes a complete mess of it. It went right through him.

13.3

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, no run

13.4

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, 1 wide, pushed well outside off stump

13.4

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, no run, the skidder, coming in with the arm, lands on the middle and leg, the batsman plays for the non-existent leg stump. Lbw shout. The umpire reckoned it might have missed leg stump

13.5

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, no run, outside off stump, nudged to the off side

13.6

Shahid Afridi to NL McCullum, no run, leans forward to push it to the on side. Another tight over from Afridi.
