Match Ended   
156/5 (18.5/20)
153/9 (20.0/20)
New Zealand beat Pakistan by 5 wickets
Right! That caps of the first T20I! The Kiwis go 1-0 up which is always a good thing in a 3-match series. Pakistan will look to make a comeback in the next encounter. The second game will be played on Sunday, 20th December 2020 at Hamilton. The action will begin at 1900 local (0600 GMT). We will look for your company for that game. Until then, it is goodbye from our side. Cheers!
Mitchell Santner, the Kiwi skipper, starts by saying that it was a great performance from the lads with the ball. Praises Jacob Duffy for the way he stepped up. Is pleased for the boys. Says the confidence is high for the team and the energy in the field was outstanding. Says they are looking forward to the World Cup in India and are looking to give different guys an opportunity. Ends by informing that there could be a few changes in the next game as a few of their star players return to the team.
Pakistan skipper, Shadab Khan, says it was a good comeback by the boys after the loss of a few wickets early on. Feels it is difficult to make a comeback after losing so many wickets. Praises Faheem and Imad for their batting. Reckons that the pitch was a little two-paced, slow and bouncy. Says they were a bit rusty today but would be building on this experience after this match. Ends by saying that he is looking forward to the next game.
Jacob Duffy is named Player of the Match for his fine bowling performance! He says it was an awesome feeling out there. Tells that it is always daunting playing at Eden Park. Mentions that he was nervous but once he bowled the first ball, it was okay. Says the teammates have been really helpful even in the nets. Ends by saying that the people from his hometown down south have really encouraged him.
Earlier in the game, Pakistan's decision to bat first turned out a terrible one as they lost 4 inside the Powerplay. The score soon read 79 for 6 and it looked like they will collapse to a very small total but skipper Shadab led from the front and scored 42. Cameos from Imad and Ashraf took them over 150. The Kiwis were superb with the ball with debutant Duffy taking 4 while Kuggleign got 3. However, towards the end, they were smashed for a few but their starting exploits meant that the total that they stopped Pakistan to, was scaled down easily by their batters.
Pakistan started well with the ball but one would feel they were a few short. Afridi and Rauf were superb with the ball as they got 2 and 3 wickets respectively in their combined 8 overs but nothing came from the others and in the end, it was an easy win for the hosts.
Chasing the total, the Kiwis started poorly as Guptill and Conway early. Seifert though continued and along with Phillips added important runs and bailed the team out from early trouble. Phillips fell but Seifert continued and along with Chapman added 45 and kept them in the game. Seifert got to his half ton but failed to stay till the end but Neesham and Santner stayed till the end and took the team home.
A bit of stumble from the Kiwis but they have managed to keep their calm and sail through to take the lead in this 3-game series. They were spot on with the ball at the start. They got smashed for a few towards the end but with the bat, they stayed cool and calm and have gotten themselves over the line with 7 balls still left in the innings.

Chapman as a word with his partner at the other end. Neesham suggests he take the review and he does. Replays roll in and they won't help. Chapman has to go as the Ultra Edge detects no bat and Ball Tracker shows it would've crashed into the stumps. Chapman has to go. He takes the review along with him.
Review time! Champman has been given out LBW! He reviews. No bat, confirms the Ultra Edge. Ball Tracker shows, hitting the wickets.

NOT OUT! Is that OUT? No, it isn't! Flat line shows the Ultra Edge. What a jaffa from Rauf after getting hit for four! He's squared Conway up on this delivery and Rizwan takes it behind the stumps. Pakistan appeal vociferously but the umpire rejects. They ponder and go up for a review. The sound was off the pad and not the bat. Conway survives.
Pakistan go for the review at the last moment. It is for caught behind against Conway. Shadab wasn't too sure but the keeper was confident. Let's see if that helps Pakistan.

Shaheen Afridi To Devon Conway
Attempts the yorker but misses by a tad bit. It's still a good ball on the pads that Conway has to dig out first ball. Manages to get it to mid on for a run to end the over.

Shaheen Afridi To Martin Guptill OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! A blinder from Shadab! Guptill is the man who has been dismissed! Pakistan are off to a perfect start here. Fuller and around off, Guptill looks to hit over mid off but he doesn't time it well. It goes high in the air but it is over the fielder. Shadab races back, keeps his eyes on the ball and then takes the screamer diving forward.

Imad Wasim To Martin Guptill
FOUR! Cuts it well this time and it is in the gap too! First boundary of the run chase. It is short but not too wide but Guptill does well to make room and cut it through the gap at backward point and gully.

Huge appeal for a catch down the leg side but turned down. A length ball down the leg side. Martin looks to flick but misses. Rizwan catches it down the leg side and they appeal. A big and loud enquiry from Pakistan but turned down. No review. Top start from Afridi.
