7.5

Azhar Mahmood to Shahid Yousuf, no run, back of a length and tight around off, sliced towards point

7.6

Azhar Mahmood to Shahid Yousuf, no run, same length, just outside off, Yousuf looks to cut that though it is close to the stumps, the ball flies over the top of his bat, just two off the over

Sialkot Stallions 32/3   Shahid Yousuf 0* (2b)

8.2

Adams to Shahid Yousuf, no run, goes for a flashy shot and is beaten outside off, through to the keeper

8.3

Adams to Shahid Yousuf, no run, outside off and the batsman shoulders arms

8.4

Adams to Shahid Yousuf, SIX, he's had enough of fiddling around, a lovely crisp hit from yousuf there, plants the front foot forward and crashes that over long-off for six

8.5

Adams to Shahid Yousuf, SIX, not as easy on the eye this time but same result, slightly short ball, pulled off the front foot, a flat six over the man at deep square leg

8.6

Adams to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, Adams from round the wicket, angling across the batsman, who guides it down to third man for a single

Sialkot Stallions 46/3   Shahid Yousuf 13* (7b 2x6)

9.1

Munro to Shahid Yousuf, FOUR, from round the wicket, not the most promising of starts, short and wide and that is slapped over cover for four

9.2

Munro to Shahid Yousuf, no run, slightly fuller, still outside off, batsman chases after it and misses

9.3

Munro to Shahid Yousuf, FOUR, short and wide once more, looks to lash that towards backward point, for a moment the fielder at deep backward point thought he could take a catch, then realised he wouldn't make it, so decided to stay on the rope and cut off the boundary, Bates slips though and the ball spins past him for four

9.4

Munro to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, close to the body and that is guided down to Bates, who fields properly this time

Sialkot Stallions 55/3   Shahid Yousuf 22* (11b 2x4 2x6)

10.1

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, de Grandhomme starts with a short of length ball outside off, sent towards deep backward point for a single

10.5

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, no run, played from the crease towards backward point, another dot ball

10.6

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, no run, pitched up and another flashy drive attempted, again beaten

Sialkot Stallions 58/3   Shahid Yousuf 23* (14b 2x4 2x6)

11.2

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, no run, back of length ball on the stumps, defended back to the bowler

11.3

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, length ball outside off, punched towards long-off for a single

11.6

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, no run, into the blockhole, looking to power it down the ground, batsman misses and Hopkins doesn't collect cleanly, that was a stumping chance there, but a tough one as the keeper wouldn't have been able to see the ball cleanly

Sialkot Stallions 63/3   Shahid Yousuf 24* (17b 2x4 2x6)

12.3

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, no run, looks for the off drive and is beaten

12.4

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, 2 runs, length ball angling in, thrashed towards long-on, reaches the fielder on the bounce, batsmen scoot back for the second

12.5

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, SIX, another six, Sialkot finding their higher gears now, not the most pleasing of shots, powers a length ball over the bowler's head for a straight six, brute force there

12.6

de Grandhomme to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, clubbed back towards the bowler, who sticks out his right hand but can't catch an immensely powerful hit form Yousuf, hard to call that a drop given how hard that was hit

Sialkot Stallions 79/3   Shahid Yousuf 33* (21b 2x4 3x6)

13.1

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, down the leg side, off the pads as the batsman looks to sweep, to short fine leg

13.3

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, 1 run, darts it into the pads, clipped towards midwicket

13.5

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, FOUR, slapped for four, a powerful hit from Yousuf who moves on to 38, that was smoked past square leg, Hira is frustrated

13.6

Hira to Shahid Yousuf, OUT, got him this time, a chip back to the bowler, Hira moves across to his left to latch on to that, Yousuf's cameo is over, slightly slower through the air, foxes the batsman

Shahid Yousuf c & b Hira 39 (26m 25b 3x4 3x6) SR: 156.00

Sialkot Stallions 87/4   Shahid Yousuf 39 (25b 3x4 3x6)
