View dismissal CS Delport c †Sangakkara b Mohammad Amir 3 4 0 0 75.00
0.5 what a catch! Bouncer angled down the leg, goes for the hook, gets a glove. It flies high to Sanga's right but he's leaped and held on with his right hand. He was still in the air as he took it, full stretch 4/1
View dismissal BB McCullum* c Babar Azam b Usama Mir 31 28 5 0 110.71
9.5 tossed up at middle stump, goes for the slog sweep, gets it off the bottom of the bat and it's sliced towards Babar at long-on, who doesn't need help from his feet this time other than to run a few yards to his left to get under that - safely pouched 71/3
View dismissal Fakhar Zaman c Imad Wasim b Sohail Khan 19 15 2 1 126.66
5.2 back of a length outside off, angled across, Zaman didn't need to do too much - all the fielders are in on the off side. But his eyes have lit up, hands have hardened and he's slapped it on the up straight to backward point at face height 40/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Babar Azam b Usama Mir 20 22 0 1 90.90
13.1 ...turns out Akmal is not happy to just hang in there. Tossed up at middle, shapes to lift this over midwicket, slightly squared up, gets it off the bottom and chips an easy one to long-on 94/5
View dismissal SP Narine c Imad Wasim b Shoaib Malik 16 9 0 2 177.77
12.4 and that's the end of the show. Steps out, but Malik has dropped it short in anticipation. It's outside off and spins away as he tries to hit on the up and gets a thick outside edge to Imad Wasim at point 93/4
View dismissal GD Elliott c Usman Khan b Shoaib Malik 2 4 0 0 50.00
14.3 another collapse? full at off stump, walks across and tries to get under this to try and slog it over the midwicket boundary, it's too full, there's no room for him and it lobs up for Usman at square leg to run a few yards to his left and take it in the infield 100/6

View dismissal Babar Azam c Umar Akmal b Fakhar Zaman 49 42 7 0 116.66
12.3 good length outside off, no feet, throws his hands at it on the up and goes for the extravagant...but it's gone high, not far, and straight to long-off 84/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene run out (†Mohammad Rizwan) 10 8 1 0 125.00
2.6 from Sohail Tanvir, Rizwan you beauty! Slower ball, good length outside off, he picks it, waits for it and dabs it to the right of Rizwan who puts in a dive to stop the ball. Mahela takes off for a run but is sent back. Can't make it as Rizwan releases immediately and hits the stumps direct from about 15 yards, didn't even take off his gloves for that throw 27/0
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Aamer Yamin b Narine 20 23 2 0 86.95
11.2 short and wide, he's making room but the ball is spinning away and out of his reach. Tries to hit the cut too hard, gets a top edge and point gets under it and takes it easily 80/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik run out (Aamer Yamin) 6 11 0 0 54.54
15.2 Narine to Imad Wasim, good length, fired down the leg side, he's used the reverse sweep to drag it out to point...direct hit! There was good bat on that reverse sweep, so it flew to the fielder - Yamin - and he caught and released it in no time to destroy the stumps. Malik hadn't even started his despairing dive as it crashed into the stumps 103/5
View dismissal RS Bopara run out (sub [Zafar Gohar]) 2 2 0 0 100.00
13.4 Yasir Shah to Shoaib Malik, good length at off stump, dropped into the off side towards short third man off the back foot, this time Bopara is sent back and the direct hit catches him short! Gohar, the substitute fielder. No need of a third umpire this time. Brilliant fielding. It was Bopara's call and he ran, but Malik wasn't looking or listening 89/4
