Asia Cup - 4th match

India v Pakistan

India won by 3 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)

16.3

Harbhajan Singh to Imran Farhat, OUT, lovely catch, lovely bowling, just 80ks, gets grip from the surface after pitching just outside off, Farhat jabs at it, gets an edge, and Sehwag takes a lovely one-handed catch to his right at slip

Imran Farhat c Sehwag b Harbhajan Singh 25 (71m 46b 3x4 0x6) SR: 54.34

Pakistan 71/1   Salman Butt 40* (53b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 1.3-0-2-1

28.6

Khan to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Zaheer gets the breakthrough! Superb length, can't drive, can't pull, Malik is stuck on the crease, and ends up defending outside the line of the ball and is bowled. Get a feeling that the ball didn't go with the angle as Malik expected it to

Shoaib Malik b Khan 39 (42m 46b 3x4 0x6) SR: 84.78

Pakistan 144/2   Salman Butt 73* (82b 9x4)   Z Khan 5-0-20-1

29.5

Jadeja to Salman Butt, OUT, superb work by Jadeja off his own bowling, Butt charges at him, trying to push it to long-off, Jadeja dives to his right, fields it cleanly, and throws to Dhoni, to find Butt out of the crease

Salman Butt run out 74 (118m 85b 9x4 0x6) SR: 87.05

Pakistan 146/3   Umar Akmal 1* (2b)   RA Jadeja 4.5-0-21-0

32.4

Harbhajan Singh to Umar Amin, OUT, Kohli has plucked a beauty! Well bowled again, slower through the air, 81.7ks, extra bounce there as Amin cuts, and it is travelling to the left of Kolhi who dives and comes up with a one-handed catch. Top work Kohli

Umar Amin c Kohli b Harbhajan Singh 5 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Pakistan 159/4   Umar Akmal 9* (10b)   Harbhajan Singh 6.4-0-32-2

37.3

Jadeja to Umar Akmal, OUT, Umar Akmal gone! One cute shot too many, premeditates the paddle sweep, is not to the pitch of it, the bounce takes the edge, into the helmet grille, and then lobs to Dhoni who rolls over to complete the catch

Umar Akmal c †Dhoni b Jadeja 21 (33m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.76

Pakistan 196/5   Shahid Afridi 23* (13b 2x4 1x6)   RA Jadeja 8.3-0-38-1

43.4

Kumar to Shahid Afridi, OUT, plumb lbw, India have hung in superbly here! A frustrated Afrdi walks right across the stumps, and is beaten by the slower one, hit dead in front

Shahid Afridi lbw b Kumar 32 (42m 25b 2x4 1x6) SR: 128.00

Pakistan 219/6   Kamran Akmal 14* (25b)   P Kumar 7.4-1-32-1

45.1

Kumar to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, and he gets a wicket first ball! Razzaq looks for trademark clear-the-front-leg-and-hit-straight shot, PK bowls full, gets a slight shape away, and hence a thick edge through to Dhoni. PK has not smiled that much in a long time

Abdul Razzaq c †Dhoni b Kumar 3 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Pakistan 227/7   Kamran Akmal 19* (29b 1x4)   P Kumar 8.1-1-33-2

47.2

Khan to Mohammad Amir, OUT, sacrifices his wicket to get Akmal on strike. Cramps him up again, he drops it straight to short midwicket and runs, and Rohit gets him with a simple, unhurried, underarm flick

Mohammad Amir run out 3 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Pakistan 247/8   Kamran Akmal 36* (35b 1x4 2x6)   Z Khan 8.2-0-34-1

48.3

Kumar to Kamran Akmal, OUT, low full toss this time, Akmal is looking midwicket again, but ends up slicing it towards mid-on, and Raina runs from straightish extra cover to claim it

Kamran Akmal c Raina b Kumar 51 (49m 41b 2x4 3x6) SR: 124.39

Pakistan 265/9   Shoaib Akhtar 2* (2b)   P Kumar 9.3-1-53-3

49.3

Khan to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Pakistan are bowled out! Hit straight down mid-off's throat

Saeed Ajmal c Nehra b Khan 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 267/10   Shoaib Akhtar 3* (5b)   Z Khan 9.3-0-41-2
