View dismissal DR Smith c †Sangakkara b Usama Mir 29 22 0 3 131.81
8.3 length ball on off stump, tries to pull but there is not enough room and he gets cramped as he skews it off the top edge towards short fine leg. Wicketkeeper runs back and snaffles it 49/3
View dismissal SW Billings lbw b Imad Wasim 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 pins him in front, Billings is basically beaten for pace by Imad's arm ball. What a way to start for Karachi! Pitches it on a good length and benefits from the ball skidding on, cramping the batsman for room, and considering he starts playing down the wrong line, he is done in. 1/1
View dismissal BJ Haddin c & b Imad Wasim 6 10 1 0 60.00
2.6 mistimes it, and he's gone! Imad makes it known to everyone at the ground, having tossed up a delivery onto middle and leg and despite Haddin coming down the track, he can gain little advantage. Chips a simple catch back to the bowler. Well, they end up simple after you feel the ball on your thigh and clutch at it to make sure it doens't drop to the ground. What a spell this is turning out to be 10/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Babar Azam b Usama Mir 16 25 0 1 64.00
10.2 spreads his arms and takes in the glory. Misbah is a magnificent player of spin and Mir has done him in by bowling it slowly and by concentrating on making the ball turn. Tossed up delivery, draws the batsman out of his crease, he goes for a big hoick, mistimes the shot and ends up chipping a catch to long-on running in 59/4
View dismissal SR Watson run out (Pollard/†Sangakkara) 26 14 2 2 185.71
12.1 from Usman Khan, goes for the blockhole, finds it and Watson can only drill it down the ground for a single. Oh wait, they're coming back for the second. This is going to be tight. The throw is a bit wide. Sanga has a lot of work to do, collects it cleanly and then dives headlong onto the stumps and Watson's gone 83/5
View dismissal Imran Khalid run out (Shoaib Malik/Usman Khan) 1 1 0 0 100.00
12.3 Usman Khan to Asif Ali, in looking for bonus runs, Islamabad are losing a few wickets. Asif belts a length ball to the midwicket boundary, but he can't clear it. Malik is down there, right on the edge, doing well to keep the ball in play and then choosing the right end - the bowler's - to effect the run out 88/6
View dismissal Asif Ali c †Sangakkara b Usman Khan 5 3 1 0 166.66
12.4 edged and taken. This is full, and just outside off, Asif looks to smoke it over midwicket but only ends up feathering it through to Sangakkara. Everything going wrong for Islamabad 88/7
View dismissal Mohammad Sami run out (Pollard/†Sangakkara) 1 1 0 0 100.00
12.6 from Usman Khan, full and straight, Sami launches it down to long-off, they look for a second run, off the last ball of the over, that's fine, and Pollard's rocket throw catches him short at the keeper's end 90/7
Shadab Khan not out 1 1 0 0 100.00

View dismissal CH Gayle c Mohammad Sami b Mohammad Irfan 2 3 0 0 66.66
0.3 caught at the third man boundary and the danger man's gone. Looks to heave a length ball on off stump over the leg side but ends up with a thick outside edge that goes so very high in the air. Mohammad Sami gets under it, making sure to keep his eyes on the ball, and moving with it as it swirls in the air and finally takes it with both hands. Excellent technique 2/1
Babar Azam not out 47 30 5 2 156.66
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† b Mohammad Irfan 2 3 0 0 66.66
2.1 he's yorked him. Sanga has no answer to this top-notch delivery. Seriously, a ball coming down from around 10 feet in the air, looking to singe your toes? Unplayable. Goes under the bat, beat him for pace and makes him look like an amateur 20/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Saeed Ajmal b Imran Khalid 6 9 0 0 66.66
5.3 caught at short third man. Malik stays leg side of a full delivery outside off and is done in by a little bit of turn. So instead of the ball taking the middle, it skews off the outside edge 49/3
View dismissal RS Bopara run out (Shadab Khan) 1 5 0 0 20.00
6.3 from Mohammad Irfan, what a throw! This is sensational from the fielder at point. Shadab Khan runs in quickly, cutting the angle and what looked like a simple dab for a single results in a wicket. Bopara hesitated, then had to run around Irfan the bowler and all that made him short of his crease 54/4
