27.5

Abdur Razzak to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, run-out, a strong throw from Shakib at point as Hafeez played it towards him, Jamshed called for the single, the throw was a little wide but Mushfiqur gathered and took down the bails just in time, Jamshed is short of the crease

Nasir Jamshed run out 54 (120m 64b 5x4 1x6) SR: 84.37

Pakistan 135/1   Mohammad Hafeez 75* (104b 7x4)   Abdur Razzak 4.5-0-25-0

32.5

Shahadat Hossain to Younis Khan, OUT, gone, Younis has to go, Shahadat sends him back, Younis moved way too across to that good length ball on middle and tried to flick it square but closed the face too early, Razzak standing at point judged it well

Younis Khan c Abdur Razzak b Shahadat Hossain 12 (21m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 160/2   Mohammad Hafeez 88* (119b 7x4)   Shahadat Hossain 3.5-0-23-1

34.4

Shahadat Hossain to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Shahadat picks up his second wicket this spell, Pakistan have lost two quickly, a short ball on middle, came on to Hafeez quicker than he would have liked, got a top edge and Shafiul took a dolly at square leg

Mohammad Hafeez c Shafiul Islam b Shahadat Hossain 89 (153m 126b 7x4 0x6) SR: 70.63

Pakistan 169/3   Umar Akmal 7* (4b 1x4)   Shahadat Hossain 4.4-0-29-2

36.3

Shahadat Hossain to Asad Shafiq, OUT, The short ball works again for Shahadat, Pakistan losing their way here, banged in short and Asad goes hard at it, went for the hook but couldn't connect well, holed out to deep square leg where Mashrafe ran across a little and judged it well

Asad Shafiq c Mashrafe Mortaza b Shahadat Hossain 4 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 175/4   Umar Akmal 9* (9b 1x4)   Shahadat Hossain 5.3-0-33-3

39.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Umar Akmal, OUT, Shakib has bowled superbly this Powerplay, Umar, keen to take advantage of the field pulled in, went for the slog-sweep, got a top-edge and Razzak, running back from square leg, juggled once but kept his calm to snap it on the second attempt

Umar Akmal c Abdur Razzak b Shakib Al Hasan 21 (34m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 105.00

Pakistan 192/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 5* (7b)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.3-0-37-1

39.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Is he gone? Shakib is claiming the catch, Afridi just struck it back loosely towards the bowler. Did it carry cleanly, did he drop it before taking it on the second attempt? That's what the umpires are checking. Wow. He missed it on the first attempt and got a hand to it just as it was dying down on the second; he palmed it towards Misbah, the ball ricocheted off Misbah and landed safely in Shakib's hand on the third attempt. Big wicket, the slide continues and Bangladesh, you would say, have edged ahead here.

Shahid Afridi c & b Shakib Al Hasan 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 193/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 6* (9b)   Shakib Al Hasan 9-0-38-2

41.2

Abdur Razzak to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Cleaned him up, that went on straight, what a collapse! Misbah was fooled by the straighter one and he played outside the line waiting for the turn, was stuck on the crease, landed on middle and off and bowled him through the gate, seven down now

Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Razzak 8 (25m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 61.53

Pakistan 198/7   Sarfraz Ahmed 3* (4b)   Abdur Razzak 8.2-0-38-1

48.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Umar Gul, OUT, the legcutter bowls Umar Gul, nipped away to clip the bails as Gul played inside the line, heads back after an excellent cameo

Umar Gul b Mashrafe Mortaza 39 (31m 25b 5x4 1x6) SR: 156.00

Pakistan 251/8   Sarfraz Ahmed 16* (25b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 10-0-55-1
