that's the end of the game, Bond pulls a good length delivery and the ball travels flat and quick to deep midwicket, Malik takes it low and close to the turf, no doubt about that, Redmond won't bat because of his groin injury
So a depleted New Zealand succumb to a 49-run defeat. One-sided affair here. Let's hope for some competition tomorrow.
A strong opening stand would have made a world of difference for New Zealand but they just gave it away. Aamer kept them guessing with his pace but you have to say that some of those top order dismissals were quite soft. There was no-one to take charge and show the way with an attacking innings. Pakistan did really well to put them under pressure and not let the game slip away. Stay with us for the presentation.

Imran Nazir is the Man of the Match
McCullum: "I thought we let the momentum slip after the first few overs. We should have kept them to 130-140. I thought I got away to a decent start but hit one straight to the fielder. I'm sure we will bounce back tomorrow."
Afridi: "There was pressure, after losing the last two ODIs. I thought the guys did a great job. I thought our score was enough. I'm very happy with the support we've got."
Thanks for your company. We'll see you tomorrrow for the final T20. Cheers.
