   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : J Ryder Eden Park, Auckland (5 Feb,2011)

Paksitan won the toss and put New Zealand in. New Zealand lost Brendon early on but Guptill and especially Ryder fought back with attacking strokes by putting up a century stand. By the time Guptill was caught the score was 141/2 after 25 with COW of 51%. Taylor, Franklin and Ryder (after a scintillating century) fell soon but Styris and Nathan McCullum smashed fifties to take NZ to 311/7 with COW of 61%. Pakistan didn’t have the best of starts and were soon reduced to 58/3 after 12 with COW of 31%. Kamran and Ashad pit together a decent stand to give some stability but Ashad and Umar quickly and when Kamran also fell for 89 it was a lost cause and despite Afridi and Tanvir’s battling innings they were all out for 254 in 44.1 overs to lose the match and end the series at 3-2.
