3.1

Nazmul Hossain to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, nicely cracked but the short extra cover is proving to be a problem, nicely timed off the back foot

3.4

Nazmul Hossain to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, gets forward to that one, appeared to swing in and defended it towards short extra cover

3.5

Nazmul Hossain to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, appeal for lbw, looked very close, ooh, came back in sharply and Hafeez was caught in front of the stumps, struck him in line as that moved back in but would that have gone down leg? Didn't seem like it. May have struck leg, hit him on the back leg. Didn't look like he got an inside edge. Very close call, Hafeez might just be lucky to survive. Hawkeye shows it would have hit middle and leg

3.6

Pakistan 16/0   Nazmul Hossain 2-1-4-0

5.1

Nazmul Hossain to Younis Khan, no run, short of a good length outside off, rocks back and taps it towards extra cover

5.2

Nazmul Hossain to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis Khan has been trapped lbw! Looked really close, that one angled in and nipped in after pitching, Younis moved across and closed the face and was struck in front of off , can't really tell on the first replay. We also need to check if there was an inside edge, Younis wasn't too happy. He has to go, however. Yes, there was an inside-edge, we see that on the second replay, a hint of deviation inwards.

Younis Khan lbw b Nazmul Hossain 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00
