Nasir Jamshed shone with a half-century as Pakistan put up a creditable 177 for six against New Zealand in their opening Group D match of the World Twenty20 on Sunday.

 

Electing to bat, Pakistan rode on Jamshed’s 35-ball 56 and some fine contributions from the openers – Mohammed Hafeez (43) and Imran Nazir (25).

 

The openers provided a steady start with a 47-run stand before Nazir’s entertaining cameo, that came off 16 deliveries, was ended by Tim Southee.

 

Nazir, who sent down five boundaries during his brief stay at the crease, was sent back to the pavillion after he pushed the ball right back to Southee, who took the catch in his follow through.

 

Nazir’s departure, however, had little effect on the scoring rate which was steady at a little above nine an over as Hafeez and Jamshed combined for a 76-run partnership.

 

Jamshed was the aggressor in this stand even though Hafeez also managed a couple of fours and an equal number of sixes during his 38-ball stay in the middle.

 

Hafeez was castled by James Franklin while trying to swing across the line. His dismissal slowed down the scoring for a while as Kamran Akmal also made his way back to the dugout with a 3-ball 3.

 

Jamshed, who struck two boundaries and four sixes, also departed soon when his attempt to loft Daniel Vettori towards the boundary ended up in the hands of Nathan McCullum.

 

The two wickets hurt Pakistan’s scoring rate and even though Umar Akmal (23) and Shoaib Malik (9 not out), who was surprisingly sent ahead of the aggressive Shahid Afridi, were aggressive between the wickets, the boundaries and sixes that rained at the start of the innings dried up towards the end.

 

Umar tied to make up for it but was dismissed by Jacob Oram just when he was beginning to pick up. His big hit landed straight in the hands of Nathan at long on. Akmal managed three fours and six during his 15-ball cameo.

 

Once he finally arrived, Afridi rattled up 12 quick runs, including two fours, before being dismissed off the last ball. (PTI)

 

Brief Scores Pakistan 177 for 6 in 20 overs (Nasir Jamshed 56, Mohammad Hafeez 43; Tim Southee 2 for 31, Jacob Oram 2 for 44, Daniel Vettori 1 for 23) vs New Zealand
