36.2

Dinda to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, slower ball and Hafeez didn't read it properly! He was on his knee to slog that away over the on side, the off cutter hits his back leg, you could see off and middle stumps, Gould was convinced

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Dinda 105 (163m 113b 9x4 1x6) SR: 92.92

48.5

Kumar to Younis Khan, OUT, one of the more unbelievable catches you will see! Younis made room to scoop inside out over extra cover and Raina was at the edge of the circle, leapt and plucked it mid-air with his wrong hand, he was moving to his left so it was that much more difficult for him

Pakistan 326/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 2* (3b)   AB Dinda 7.3-0-45-2
