ICC World Twenty20 - 18th match, Group F

New Zealand v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 6 wickets (with 41 balls remaining)

12.1

Umar Gul to Styris, no run, Gul starts with a delivery well outside off stump, very close to being called a wide, Styris has a big swing and a miss

12.2

Umar Gul to Styris, no run, straighter, fuller, Styris went for the swipe to the on side but edged it along the ground to Akmal

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

12.4

Umar Gul to McGlashan, OUT, And Gul gets another wicket with a yorker. McGlashan took couple of steps down the track and tried to sweep it. Not a good idea. The yorker crashed into his pad and he was caught in front of the stumps.

PD McGlashan lbw b Umar Gul 8 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

12.5

Umar Gul to Franklin, 1 leg bye, goes for another full delivery but this one swings away late and though it hit the pad, it was missing the leg stump.

12.6

Umar Gul to NL McCullum, no run, in the zone outside off, moving away fractionally and the batsman pushes inside the line. What a start from Umar Gul.

New Zealand 74/6   Umar Gul 1-0-1-2

15.1

Umar Gul to NL McCullum, 1 run, bounces on the middle and off line, stabbed to the off side

15.2

Umar Gul to Franklin, 2 runs, banged in short of length outside off, upper cut wide of third man and Aamer makes a sliding tumbling stop. Akmal applauds.

15.3

Umar Gul to Franklin, 1 leg bye, another fine yorker, on the leg stump line, and the ball rolls off the pad to the on side

15.4

Umar Gul to NL McCullum, OUT, The leg stump has gone for a walk. It was full, it was straight and went past the attempted big hit. Clatter! Pakistan are all over the Kiwis at this point.

NL McCullum b Umar Gul 7 (9m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

15.5

Umar Gul to Vettori, no run, full in length, moving through the off-side channel, tries to run it down to third man and is beaten

15.6

Umar Gul to Vettori, no run, full and straight, on the middle, edged to the pad. What a fine over again from Gul.

New Zealand 88/7   Umar Gul 2-0-4-3

17.1

Umar Gul to Franklin, no run, swinging yorker, tailing towards middle and off, dug out to the off side

17.2

Umar Gul to Franklin, no run, hurls in the bouncer this time and it climbs past Franklin

17.3

Umar Gul to Franklin, OUT, And what a spell this has been. Another deadly fatal yorker. Another wicket. Franklin was looking to hit across the line. Mistake. The middle stump has been pegged back.

JEC Franklin b Umar Gul 7 (16m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

17.4

Umar Gul to Mills, OUT, Stand up and applaud. This is the first five-for in Twenty20 internationals. Umar Gul is da Maan. The leg cutter does the trick. The batsman gets a leading edge to cover. Simple catch. 5 for 4 and what's more he is on a hat-trick for the second time today.

KD Mills c Shahzaib Hasan b Umar Gul 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

17.5

Umar Gul to Butler, 1 run, length delivery, on the middle, edged to the on side

New Zealand 95/9   Umar Gul 3-0-6-5
