Ahmed Shehzad cracked a half century

CHRISTCHURCH: Ahmed Shehzad cracked a half century to help Pakistan gain a consolation win over New Zealand in the 3rd T20 match in Christchurch
Date: 30 Dec 2010
Pakistan humiliated New Zealand in the 3rd and final T20 international in Christchurch 30 Dec as the Black Caps slumped to their lowest ever total in the ultra short form of the game.
New Zealand collapsed spectacularly chasing Pakistan’s six for 183, with the top four batsmen all out for ducks as the mercurial tourists shrugged off a form slump that cost them the first two games of the three-match series.
Openers Ahmed Shehzad and Mohammad Hafeez went after New Zealand’s bowlers from the outset, scoring at a rate of almost 10 an over for a partnership of 81 to give Pakistan their best start of the series.
Hafeez made 34 from 23 balls before mistiming a wide pitched delivery from James Franklin and falling to a leaping one-handed catch from Taylor.
Boob Boom Razzaq also pitched in with 34 not out (11 balls faced) then took 3 wickets for 13 runs in a man of the match performance.
Tanvir Ahmed took 1 for 13 on debut.
New Zealand fell apart in reply and were four wickets down for three runs in the third over.
