find matched files

Hi, suppose my current path is /scratch/zh/imp/out. There are 22 sub-directories called "1","2",..."22".
In each sub-folder, there are many .gz files and .summary files. In the normal situation, there is a corresponding .gz file for each .summary file.
But sometimes it is not correct due to lacking of enough cpu time to cause jobs failure.

I want a shell scipt to check the case. If the situation happened, find which folder failed.

Thanks for help.

for i in `find . -type d`
	ls -l $i | grep ".gz$" > /dev/null
	[ "$?" eq "0" ] && echo "$i has .gz file" || echo "$i does not have .gz file"
	ls -l $i | grep ".summary$" > /dev/null
	[ "$?" eq "0" ] && echo "$i has .summary file" || echo "$i does not have .summary file"

for t in $(seq 1 22); do
    cd ${firstdir}/${t}
        for w in $(ls *.summary | sed 's/\.summary//g'); do
            if [ ! -f ${w}.gz ]; then
                echo "Error: ${t}: ${w}.gz is absent."
