View dismissal LE Bosman c †Kamran Akmal b Sreesanth 52 80 55 3 3 94.54
18.4 got 'em, short of a length and Bosman goes for the pull but there's an inside edge there and is caught behind, Bosman walks even before the umpire upholds the appeal. Sreesanth is so pumped up that he gets within arms length of Bosman and gives him a mighty stare. As I said earlier ... aggressive say some, highly comical say others. And yes .. this isn't the World Cup final but the Afro-Asia Cup. 101/7
View dismissal GH Bodi c Shahid Afridi b Sreesanth 12 22 13 2 0 92.30
4.5 skier, way way into the stars but there's just height and no range, good length ball from Sreesanth and Bodi goes for the loft but he gets under it and manages to only sky it high in the air. Afridi gets under it and calmly pouches the catch at mid-off. Sreesanth strikes the first blow 21/1
View dismissal MA Ouma c †Kamran Akmal b Mashrafe Mortaza 4 6 6 1 0 66.66
5.6 that's edged and taken, he set it up really well, Mortaza, after a series of short deliveries, he digs one in back of a length outside off and moves it away off the pitch, Ouma jabs at it unconvincingly and manages a thick edge which Akmal grabs with glee. Well done Mahrafe 'Norail Express' Mortaza. 30/2
View dismissal T Mishra* c Abdur Razzak b Mashrafe Mortaza 6 10 6 1 0 100.00
7.6 down the track again and he pays for the rush of blood, tries to smash a good length ball over the covers but only gets a thick edge that flies to third man. Razzaq snaps up a simple catch on the boundary 40/3
View dismissal AA Obanda run out (Shoaib Malik/Abdur Razzak) 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
9.2 Abdur Razzak to Bosman, a terrible mix-up and Obanda has to go, Bosman pushes it into the covers, Obanda charges down from the non-striker's end, Bosman sees malik pick up quickly and sends Obanda back, Malik fires the throw into Razzak who whips off the bails with Obanda not even in the frame 43/4
View dismissal KM Dabengwa c †Kamran Akmal b Maharoof 2 4 3 0 0 66.66
10.5 beauty of a leg-cutter from Maharoof, short of a length and moving in, Dabengwa is beaten comprehensively and gets an inside edge that squirts between bat and pad. Akmal dives to the leg side and pulls off a smart take. Africa plunge into further trouble 51/5
View dismissal NN Odhiambo b Abdur Razzak 9 13 15 1 0 60.00
14.6 swoosh, 100kph that time, good length ball and straight, Odhiambo makes a big mistake by rocking back and trying to cut and is castled. Too quick from Razzaq. Ripper 65/6
M Morkel not out 8 21 12 0 0 66.66
View dismissal MS Tshabalala b Shahid Afridi 2 4 3 0 0 66.66
19.3 timber, Tshabalala tries the slog sweep but that's a legbreak that takes the inside edge and rattles off stump. 107/8
