Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

11.25pm Sarfraz gets his hands on another trophy, but this one, sadly, doesn’t have a biscuit on it. Even so, a terrific performance from Pakistan. We hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage of the T20I series. Be sure to join us for the first ODI day after tomorrow. Until then, goodbye!

Sarfraz Ahmed: “A brilliant team effort from us. We needed 160-plus, and our batsmen did it, and Babar Azam and Hafeez played magnificent innings. Throughout the series we’ve taken wickets with the new ball, and we’ve done well with the bat too. When our players set such records, it feels very good. The way Babar got to 1000 runs, Shadab getting the most wickets this year. Also someone like Hafeez bhai coming back and doing so well.”

Kane Williamson: “At the halfway stage, on that surface, that was a very good total from Pakistan. They batted very well, did very well to keep wickets in hand. A lot of good cricket shots. We could have hit more favourable areas, but they played superbly well on a tricky surface. A lot had to go our way with the bat, and they did for a while, but things can change quickly in these conditions, and Pakistan have been clinical. They’re very accurate, bowled to the areas of the ground that they want to be hit to. Very good bowling attack, and we’ll try to keep learning from them in these conditions. Lots of positives over the three games. Tough pill to swallow today, but we’ve got to put that behind us and look ahead to the one-day series.”

Mohammad Hafeez is the Player of the Series. “Really happy. I came back in the previous series, and credit to the way the team has supported me, and wished me before every performance. Whatever the situation, I try to handle it properly, and whatever’s going through my mind, it’s working, thankfully. The way every player is taking responsibility, in pressure situations, it’s a great sign for the team moving forward. Every player is building confidence. [Looking ahead] What I’m doing at the moment, it’s working, and I just need to keep doing it and not change anything.”

Babar Azam is the Player of the Match. “Hafeez bhai gave me great support. I keep it simple, hit my shots when the ball is in my area. I take my chances – it’s not that I don’t – but my role is to play the full 20 overs, and if need be, I take chances. No great change between one-down and opening the batting. I knew I had broken Kohli’s record, I pray to Allah that I can keep achieving more.”

Kashif: “KW 60 rest of the kiwis plus extras… 59.”

Fiaz Leghari : “31st occasion Pak has bowled out the opposition in T20Is, no doubt the best bowling attack in the world ”

Usman Khalid: “Imagine someone going out to run an errand after the 12th over and rushing to get back quick and catch the last 3 overs of the game!”

Rameez: “Why isn’t there a WT20 this year ?? :(”

Umer Adil: “Here i am announcing MOM is shadab… MOS is babar.. ”

Bilal Haider: “Professor For Man Of The Series”

11.04pm From 96 for 2 to 119 all out. Eight wickets for 23 runs. Staggering. It can happen in T20, of course, where a team just gets on a roll after breaking a partnership. There was some excellent bowling in there from Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim in particular, but also some inexperience shown by New Zealand’s batsmen – I’m thinking especially of the wickets of Chapman and Seifert. Lovely innings by Williamson, made it look so easy. The collapse after his dismissal suggests his innings transcended what has been a pretty tricky pitch to bat on.

16.5WWaqas Maqsood to Rance bowled him, and Pakistan have wrapped up a 3-0 series win. Slower ball, fullish, with a bit of offcut taking it away from the right-hander and hitting off stump after Rance makes some room for the big hit down the ground but fails to make the requisite contact. Two wickets for the debutant Waqas Maqsood. OUT
SHA Rance b Waqas Maqsood 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
16.41Waqas Maqsood to Sodhi back of a length on off stump, and Sodhi eases it to sweeper cover off the back foot 1 run
16.34Waqas Maqsood to Sodhi length ball slanted across the stumps, and he makes room and flat-bats it over extra-cover. Shot! FOUR
Imran Azami: “New Zealand are clearly gonna miss the services of Mr. Chris Martin aka “The phantom” here :P” — They haven’t even brought Trent Boult here. It’s unfair for connoisseurs of No. 11 technique.
16.21Waqas Maqsood to Rance back of a length on middle stump, punched to the left of extra-cover 1 run
Talha: “From 95-2 to 110-8.. Thats Pakistan for you!” — Aaaaand it’s now 113 for 9.
16.1WWaqas Maqsood to Ferguson and the birthday boy strikes! First T20I wicket for the debutant. Back of a length, slanting across the stumps, and Ferguson, making room and looking to guide it down to third man, only manages to edge it, and Sarfraz takes a good catch diving to his right OUT
LH Ferguson c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Waqas Maqsood 1 (8m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33
Waqas, left-arm over.


15.62Usman Khan to Sodhi back of a length, angling into the stumps, and Sodhi swipes it away and gets enough power on it to beat long-on sprinting hard to his right 2 runs
Fiaz Leghari : “With that wicket of Taylor, Shadab has become the highest wicket taker in this calendar year” — Yup, he’s gone past AJ Tye and now has 28 wickets.
15.51Usman Khan to Ferguson full, close to off stump, driven towards mid-off 1 run
15.41Usman Khan to Sodhi full now, clipped to long-on 1 run
15.31Usman Khan to Ferguson ooh, skiddy. Back of a length, angling in towards off stump. Looks to half-pull, half-flick, but mostly it’s just hurried stabbing at the ball, because he’s been beaten by pace off the pitch. Hits the back pad and rolls into the short third man region 1 leg bye
Daniyal: “A stumping, a run-out and a caught-behind. Sarfraz now has a perfect keeper’s hattrick.”
15.21Usman Khan to Sodhi wide of the crease, angles this one in towards off stump, pretty full. Clipped away through square leg, off the inside half of the bat 1 run
15.10Usman Khan to Sodhi length ball, clipped towards midwicket no run
Usman, from round the wicket.


14.6WShadab Khan to Taylor is that a top edge? Sarfraz thinks so, and the umpire thinks so. Quickish outside off, more topspin than sidespin, and perhaps not enough room to cut. Taylor is one of the better cutters in the game, and he doesn’t really need that much width, but on this occasion all he manages is a thick edge, which Sarfraz does very well to hold onto because it deviated quite sharply OUT
LRPL Taylor c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Shadab Khan 7 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50
14.51Shadab Khan to Sodhi full on off stump, stabbed to the right of point 1 run
14.41Shadab Khan to Taylor tossed up on middle and off, whipped to deep midwicket 1 run
Ali Shiraz: “And that’s why i don’t take toilet breaks in the middle of the game. Like what just happened here”
14.31Shadab Khan to Sodhi tossed up wide of off stump, driven to sweeper cover 1 run
14.20Shadab Khan to Sodhi short outside off, cut to point no run
Umair: “Why 13.5 was not wide?” — It wasn’t actually that far down the leg side. Just fired quickly past him.
14.11Shadab Khan to Taylor full on leg stump, clipped towards deep midwicket, and oh my word, what are New Zealand doing here! Southee comes back for the second, Taylor sends him back, and Southee slips as he turns back towards the striker’s end. Tries to dive back into the crease, but he’s too late to beat the throw and Sarfraz’s glovework. That’s five wickets in eleven balls. Wow. 1 run, OUT
TG Southee run out 0 (3m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: –
Here’s Sixer Southee, one of my favourite batsmen to watch.


13.6WImad Wasim to Seifert bowled him, this is stunning stuff from Pakistan’s spinners. This is like the classic arm ball, which swings into the right-hander and skids off the track, imperilling anyone who deigns to play back to it. Tim Seifert goes back and across to cut, and he’s taken by surprise by the direction and pace of that ball, and is late on the shot. Only manages to chop it onto his stumps with a bit of back pad along the way OUT
TL Seifert b Imad Wasim 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
13.5WImad Wasim to Chapman cleverly done. This has gone up to the third umpire. Saw Chapman stepping out – he left his crease too early, and fired it down the leg side. Swung hard, in desperation, and missed, and Sarfraz does the rest, though he takes a bit of time moving down the leg side to collect. Chapman was a long way down the pitch, and there was no way he was getting back in time OUT
MS Chapman st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Imad Wasim 2 (9m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
13.41Imad Wasim to Taylor length ball wide of off stump, flat-batted to the left of extra-cover 1 run
13.32Imad Wasim to Taylor full-toss, whipped away firmly with a lot of bottom hand, leaving long-on with a lot of work to do. Malik sprints to his right and stops it with some nifty footwork at the rope 2 runs
13.21Imad Wasim to Chapman skips down the track again, to one floated across him and pitching outside off, clips it to long-on 1 run
Stays round the wicket to the left-hander
13.11Imad Wasim to Taylor down the track to the length ball outside off, drives it to long-off 1 run
Imad Wasim comes back into the attack. Left-arm round to Taylor.


12.61Shadab Khan to Taylor tossed up wider, driven to sweeper cover 1 run
12.50Shadab Khan to Taylor nice flight just around off stump, presses forward and pushes into the covers, looking for one, but Shadab moves quickly in his follow-through to cut it off no run
Ross Taylor is in at No. 6. Feels so unusual not to see him at No. 4.

Hafeez : “Good captaincy by Sarfaraz, continues with Shadab despite going for plenty & he gets him both set batsmen in a ln over.”

Vishnu: “Rameez is trying very hard to jinx both of these batsmen.” — I guess you sent in your comment before his attempts proved successful. Never doubt the wisdom of Rambo!

12.4WShadab Khan to Phillips bowled him, Shadab’s turning it on here. Flat legbreak pitching on off stump and turning marginally away. Looks to work it through midwicket, plays too much across it, and only manages to bottom-edge it into his stumps OUT
GD Phillips b Shadab Khan 26 (54m 24b 1×4 1×6) SR: 108.33
12.31Shadab Khan to Chapman floated across, pitching just outside off. Clipped away through midwicket 1 run
In walks Mark Chapman, formerly of Hong Kong. Shadab to a left-hander might be interesting. Stays over the wicket.
12.2WShadab Khan to Williamson gone! Big boundaries make limited-overs cricket so much more interesting. They allowed Shadab to bowl another over after his previous, expensive one, and they allowed him to flight this ball enticingly outside off stump. Williamson takes it on, but he can’t clear the man at long-on. Hits it straight to the fielder OUT
KS Williamson c Babar Azam b Shadab Khan 60 (38m 38b 8×4 2×6) SR: 157.89
12.10Shadab Khan to Williamson steps out a touch early and Shadab pulls his length back a touch. Waits and dabs towards backward point no run
Zia: “Babar missed too many scoring opportunities between 40-50 when Munro was bowling…total could have been 170+ ” — To be fair to him, New Zealand bowled very well in that phase, mixing up their pace well and not giving the batsmen any room.


11.66Usman Khan to Phillips shot! Fullish, angling in towards off stump, and Phillips clears his front leg and thumps this over the wide long-on boundary SIX
