AUCKLAND (Agencies) - Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was not happy with his sides Twenty20 loss to New Zealand on Boxing Day. The tourists lost the first of three Twenty20 matches by five wickets at Eden Park. New Zealand raced home when chasing 144 for victory. The side had made a good start to the innings and he felt they would be able to achieve a good target but they had been undone by hat-trick bowler Tim Southee. I thought he bowled really well. There were a few bad shots and Umar Akmal I think he was unlucky [given out lbw television evidence showed he hit the ball] but I think this is the right time before the World Cup and he should learn something from his mistake. The pitch was very good, he said. His bowlers needed to hit specific areas more consistently and that had been borne out when New Zealand batted but he felt there should be an improvement in Tuesdays game in Hamilton. Partnership building and bowling in the right areas would be crucial, he said.
