Pakistan Innings:

M. Hafeez & Shahid Khan Afridi were the openers from the Pakistan’s side. Both players were hitting huge hits. Mr. B00M B00M smashed too huge sixes.

At the last ball of the 4th over, Mills bowled a ball of extra bounce in result Afridi tried to play a pull short but it was short enough to carry an edge. Southee was the man who caught the catch. At this time the score was 37/1 in 4.0 overs. B00M B00M scored 20 runs off 12 balls with 1 four & 2 beautiful sixes.

Ahmed Shehzad, the young talented batsman took the guard & entered into the ground. He played some beautiful shots including a terrific six but got out at the ball of the 6th over. Ahmed scored 14 runs off 7 balls with the help of 2 fours & 1 six.

Next man was the experienced & victorious captain of T20I World Cup 2009 ‘Younis Khan’ but here he failed to execute his experience & got out at the ball of Southee. He scored 2 runs off 5 balls. At this time the score of Pakistan was 62/3 in 7.2 overs.

At the very next ball, the well settled batsman M. Hafeez also got out. He scored 24 runs off 21 balls with 4 fours.

Another young batsman Umar Akmal came in but what!!! Umpire gave him out….Hatrick for Tim Southee. Umar could not believe what happened with him. The replay also showed that there was a clear inside edge on the pads with a great voice. But the debut & biased umpire from New Zealand gave him lbw out.

The sudden collapse threatened the position of Pakistan. Southee was very happy but Pakistani players & fans were really angry because of this decision. The score of Pakistan was 62/5 in 7.4 overs.

The two new batsmen were on the pitch, Fawad Alam & Abdul Razzaq. They were showing some calmness. But in the next over of Southee, Abdul Razzaq caught behind the stumps. It was the 5th wicket for Southee. The score was 68/6 in 9.2 overs.

Then Umar Gul came in to assist Fawad Alam. Both were trying hard to build up the Pakistan innings again but a bad choice of shot led Fawad Alam towards pavilion. Pakistan was going down, the score was 84/7 in 12.1 overs.

Still 7 overs were behind. Then Wahab Raiz entered into the ground. Both players showed activeness & steadiness. Umar Gul hit some fabulous boundaries but in the 18th over, Gul got a blow on his pad & it was given out. The score was now above hundred, it was 110/8 in 17.1 overs.

The next man was Saeed Ajmal. At the last ball of the same over, again umpire on debut gave him caught behind out at the ball of Mills which was totally wrong. It could be lbw out because it was hit on the pad & after seeing on screen, he gave him lbw out but also it wasn’t sure.

Now the last man of the Pakistan’s side was Shoaib Akhtar & the talented young fast bowler from New Zealand was Milne; who was playing his debut. Akhtar survived several time in his over but when Akhtar got angry of short balls, he smashed one of the ball out of the ground & it was six.

Wahab Riaz on the other hand was trying hard to keep the scoreboard ticking. In the last two overs, he was on fire. He scored 30 runs off 21 balls with 2 fours & 2 shining sixes. Shoaib Akhtar also got 8 runs from 4 balls with 1 huge six. Both remained not-out.

In the end, Pakistan succeeded in scoring 143 runs of 20.0 overs with the loss of 9 wickets. The tail enders scored half of the score, as 4 runs were given extra by the Kiwis.

New Zealand Innings:

The well known Ryder & Guptill were the openers from the New Zealand. Abdul Razzaq was the bowler from Pakistan. At the 3rd ball of Abdul Razzaq, Guptill scored a four, at the 4th ball, he scored a six & at the 5th ball he again scored a four. It was the poor show of bowling by Pakistan.

Both batsman were playing great. At the last ball of the 2nd over, Shoaib Akhtar got the wicket of Ryder. It was a brilliant catch by Younis Khan. The score was 27/1 in 1.6 overs.

Brownlie was the next man from New Zealand; who was on his debut, can’t make more then 5 runs & got out at the ball of Shoaib Akhtar. The score of New Zealand was 45/2 in 3.3 overs.

Scott Styris came in. He stroke a massive six. But then got clean bowled at the ball of Akhtar. He scored just 7 runs on 8 balls.

Captain Taylor came in & started building a good partnership with Guptill. Both played some beautiful shots. Guptill got his fifty in no time.

In the 10th over, M. Hafeez with Umar Akmal done some extra-ordinary work & succeeded in cleaning Guptill. He was run-out at the score of 91/4 in 9.4 overs. He scored 54 runs off just 29 runs with 4 fours & 4 stunning sixes.

At the very next ball of Mr. B00M B00M, Junior Akmal produced some dashing talent & stumped Franklin. Umar Akmal called for a appeal & it was handed over to the 3rd umpire. Clips were showing that the feet of the Franklin was on the line & the bails were off, even commentators & spectators were saying that ‘he is out’. But the 3rd umpire given him Not-Out which was unbelievable & wrong decision. Umar Akmal was looking frustrated.

In the 15th over of the professor M. Hafeez, Franklin got a stretched ball on his pad & after loud appeal it was given lbw out. At this time the score was 115/5 in 14.4 overs.

From there, Ryder & new batsman McGlashan started building a solid partnership. Captain of Kiwis Ross Taylor was on fire. In the 16th over, he screwed Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar & in the 17th over, he destroyed Professor M. Hafeez.

Taylor scored 39 runs off 31 balls with 2 fours & 3 sixes. McGlashan scored 5 runs off 8 balls with 1 four. Both remained not-out.

New Zealand succeeded in chasing the target & scored 146/5 in 17.1 overs. 11 runs were given extra by the Pakistani bowlers.
