Date & Day: December 28, 2010 ; Tuesday


Toss: Pakistan won the toss & elected to field.


New Zealand Innings:

Ryder & Guptill were the openers from the New Zealand side. The conditions were overcast & there was big responsibility on there shoulders.

Abdul Razzaq was the bowler from Pakistan. The very first ball he bowled was down the leg side; instead of leaving it, Ryder tried to pull it towards leg side but he got a sharp nick from the bat which was easily taken by Junior Akmal.

It was a very big moment for Pakistan. The score of Kiwi’s was nil. At the end of the first over the score was 1/1.

Next over was given to Shoaib Akhtar, he bowled some beautiful deliveries. In the 3rd over of the match which was given to Abdul Razzaq, Guptill smashed a massive SIX & a FOUR. The last ball of the over went to the boundary after hitting the pads of Guptill.

In the next over, Guptill again struck a huge SIX to Shoaib Akhtar. At the end of the 4th over the score of New Zealand was 34/1.

Guptill & Franklin were going very good but at the 2nd ball of 12th over, Saeed Ajmal took the wicket of the Mr. Hitler (Guptill). Guptill scored 44 runs off 28 balls with 3 FOURS & 3 SIXES.

Next man in was the skipper Ross Taylor. But in the next over of B00M B00M, Franklin got out. He scored 40 runs off 43 balls with 2 FOURS & 1 SIX.

Scott Styris took the guard & went into the ground to make a good partnership with the captain. In the 15th over of Umar Gul, he smashed 2 FOURS & 1 SIX. Next over was of Shoaib Akhtar but this over was like a hell for Pakistan. Styris scored two huge SIXES at the first two balls of the over, the third ball went to FOUR. This was very anxious moment for the Rawalpindi Express. Then he bowled a slower short ball to Styris & got his precious wicket after a huge loss.

It was like the presents of Christmas falling from the sky for ‘Black Caps’.

McGalshan came in to assist his captain. At that time the score of New Zealand was 133/4 in 15.4 overs. On the other hand, Taylor was taking singles & doubles.

The 18th over of the match was given to Umar Gul. McGalshan was on strike, the first three balls of the over went for FOUR, then the 4th & 5th ball went for a beautiful six. It was the very bad time for Pakistan. This over of Umar Gul cost 25 runs to Pakistan. Umar Gul’s over was like “Hell in a Cell” for Pakistan.

The 19th over was given to Wahab Riaz & at the 3rd ball of the over, Wahab bowled a beautiful delivery at the middle stump, in reply McGalshan tried to play a cross shot but failed & that’s how he was given lbw out. He played an innings of 26 runs on just 10 balls with the help of 3 FOURS & 2 SIXES.

In the last over of the New Zealand innings, Taylor scored a beautiful SIX at the first ball. At the 3rd ball, Nathan McCullum got out & the last ball of the over, Mills also got out. This was a great over by Saeed Ajmal. Ajmal took 3 wickets for 35 runs in 4.0 overs.

New Zealand sums up its innings after scoring 185 runs in 20.0 overs with a loss of 7 wickets. 10 runs were given extra by Pakistani bowlers.

Umar Gul’s over was like “Hell in a Cell” for Pakistan.

Abu Dhabi: South Africa won the series after beating Pakistan with six wickets in the 2nd T20I. Again Pakistani Batsmen proved dried leaves.

Toss: Pakistan won the toss & elected to bat.


Pakistan Innings:

Pakistan Cricket Team was unchanged & the same batsmen were sent to open the innings {Imran Farhat & Shahzaib Hassan}. Again Shahzaib failed to convince the crowd & went back to pavilion at the last ball of the 2nd over.

Mohammad Hafeez came in & tried to set the things, he was looking good but the luck was not in his favor. A sharp inside edge wrecked the bails. Pakistani management sent Misbah-ul-Haq at no. 4, which was indeed a good decision.

Misbah-ul-Haq was playing as a test & it was the need of the time. But on the other hand no one was supporting him. After Imran Farhat, no one tried to stand at that end. Everyone was trying to smash the ball.

Today, captain of Pakistan Cricket Team Shahid Afridi disappointed his fans & went back to pavilion after scoring just 3 runs of 3 balls.

Abdul Razzaq tried its best & scored 25 runs of 29 balls with 2 massive sixes. He was unlucky too & caught by the fielder.

Zulqarnain Haider who is a young talented wicket keeper succeeded in adding 17 precious runs of 17 balls with 1 four.

Misbah-ul-Haq was struggling & tried his best to boost up the score by adding 33 runs of 38 balls with the help of  2 fours & 1 six.

Last over was the best over for South Africa & for their bowler Rusty Theron. He took 3 wickets in that over for just 4 runs.

At last Pakistan managed to score 120/9 in 20.0 overs. This was a good recovery because 5 wickets were gone when Pakistan was on 39.

South Africa Innings:

Greame Smith & Loots Bosman were the openers from South Africa. Shoaib Akhtar was on the bowling track. Spectators were expecting the good performance of Shoaib Akhtar as he performed in the 1st T20I. But he failed to do so.

South Africa’s first wicket went down on the score of 39.AB de Villeres also helped Smith. But Smith was facing problems in playing against Afridi. Today, the Afridi’s bowling was very tight. South Africa’s batsmen were thinking about solving this problem.

A single over was not given to Pakistan’s All Rounder Abdul Razzaq by his captain because of his poor form. In the 16th-17th over, the game was completely in the hand of Pakistan. Pakistani spinners performed really good.

But Umar Gul & then Shoaib Akthar failed to maintain their line & length, Ingram smashed each & every single ball with Duminy.

Spectators in the Shiekh Zaid Cricket Stadium were in deep pain because Ex-World T20I Champion Pakistan was once again defeated by South Africa.
