Mahmudullah to Umar Akmal, OUT, caught-behind, Pakistan in further trouble, Umar Akmal is furious, that landed on leg stump and turned further down, Umar tried to work that behind square, replays didn't show a clear contact with the bat there, it may have flicked the trouser on the way to Mushfiqur, who took it well. Plenty of doubt there but the umpire had none, he raised his finger, Pakistan in deep trouble now.
