View dismissal Anamul Haque c Ahmed Shehzad b Saeed Ajmal 100 156 132 6 4 75.75
39.1 58.8 mph, Charges down the track and he's holed out at deep midwicket! Hasn't picked the doosra as he was looking to up the ante. Goes down the track and hacks this away, but doesn't get any timing on this. 204/2
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c †Umar Akmal b Mohammad Talha 59 112 75 5 2 78.66
28.4 75.9 mph, takes his time, shakes his head and then gives it! Umpire Cloete, you legend! This was the slower short ball and it deceived a charging Kayes. He tries to adjust and checks his pull shot, but Pakistan finally have a wicket. Went off the back of the bat and then off the shoulder through to the keeper 150/1
View dismissal Mominul Haque c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 51 69 47 6 0 108.51
44.2 56.5 mph, top-edge and deep square leg swallows him up! A bit more bounce for Ajmal as the batsman goes for another sweep. The fielder dives forward to complete a simple catch. Misbah's decision to hold Ajmal back in the death seems to be working big time 249/3
Mushfiqur Rahim* not out 51 54 33 8 0 154.54

View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad b Abdur Razzak 103 152 123 12 1 83.73
38.3 61.5 mph, makes room outside leg and he's yorked himself! Anamul Haque lets out a war-cry, Mirpur has woken up! Razzak though looks thoroughly disenchanted with the emotion after bowling a beauty! he's seen the batsman moving in his crease and fires in a middle stump yorker. Shehzad tries to jam a horizontal bat down in time to stop it, but does not succeed 210/4
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Imrul Kayes b Mominul Haque 52 77 55 8 0 94.54
20.4 52.7 mph, it was on the cards. Pakistan were piling too much pressure on themselves and Hafeez goes for a slog-sweep against the spin. But all he manages is a slice to long-on. Tight lines from Mominul as he attacks middle and leg, Hafeez had planted his front leg out of the way and swings, but doesn't make good enough contact 97/1
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* b Shakib Al Hasan 4 4 4 1 0 100.00
21.5 49.1 mph, Misbah's gone! Goes for an almighty heave over midwicket and he has been cleaned up. Bangladesh are ecstatic. What a good move by Mushi to bring back his strike bowler and Shakib does not disappoint. This is a skidder tossed up on off stump and Misbah has played all around it 102/2
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c †Anamul Haque b Mominul Haque 2 4 5 0 0 40.00
22.5 50.9 mph, two wickets in two overs, Mirpur has gone haywire and that's nothing compared to what the Bangladesh players are feeling! Amid all that, Maqsood has not touched this ball! This quicker delivery just outside off bounces and turns a bit too much for the cut shot and beats him completely. The keeper goes up straight away and Umpire Llong agrees. Maqsood just has a wry smile on his face as he takes it on the chin and walks off 105/3
View dismissal Fawad Alam run out (†Anamul Haque/Al-Amin Hossain) 74 130 70 4 2 105.71
49.4 from Al-Amin Hossain, 137 kph, Alam was backing away and the bowler bowls it short and slides it across him. Looks to ramp it over third man but doesn't connect. The keeper dribbles the ball through and the bowler breaks the stumps at the other end. There was lots of height on that bouncer though, very close to being a wide 325/7
View dismissal Abdur Rehman c Ziaur Rahman b Mahmudullah 8 12 8 0 0 100.00
41.2 56.1 mph, holes out to long-on as he goes for a slog down the ground. There was too much with on this, plus it was turning away as well. This was always a poor choice of shot and he succumbs. Might actually be good for Pakistan that that experiment ended sooner than later 225/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi run out (Shakib Al Hasan) 59 34 25 2 7 236.00
46.5 from Al-Amin Hossain, very full outside off, he is forward and drills this to mid-off. They set off for the single, even with Afridi struggling to move out there. A direct hit from mid-off finds him short and Mirpur roars 294/6
