View dismissal L Vincent c & b Fawad Alam 28 31 28 1 1 100.00
7.5 terrific return catch - Vincent driving hard on the up and Fawad is quick to get his hands to the ball 50/1
View dismissal BB McCullum lbw b Shahid Afridi 26 39 27 2 0 96.29
10.3 now this is a big wicket - rapped low and clearly on off, McCullum trying to sweep and missing completely 74/2
View dismissal SB Styris c Sohail Tanvir b Umar Gul 18 17 12 1 1 150.00
13.1 outside off, Styris lifts up off the bottom of his bat but can't clear the cover boundary - the ball goes up straight and back down into the hands of Sohail way inside the rope 85/3
View dismissal PG Fulton c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 10 12 15 0 0 66.66
13.3 two in three balls now for Gul as Fulton, standing straight, doesn't get over the ball and pops a straightforward catch to cover 87/4
LRPL Taylor not out 37 31 23 2 2 160.86
View dismissal CD McMillan c Younis Khan b Fawad Alam 12 5 6 1 1 200.00
14.6 goes to clear long-off again with the huge lift off the bottom of the bat, but - like Styris earlier - did not get the distance and Shoaib stays firm, and strong, to take the catch yards in from the rope 104/5
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
15.6 round the wicket again, angling in, with some lift too, and Oram's would-be carve over mid-on takes a big snick through to Akmal 106/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* run out (Shahid Afridi/Mohammad Hafeez) 0 1 0 0 0 -
16.2 Mohammad Hafeez to Taylor, wristed to midwicket, then a horrible mix-up: Vettori turning down the second and then sacrificing himself - walking out of his crease to allow Taylor to get back in 107/7
View dismissal SE Bond run out (Fawad Alam/†Kamran Akmal) 5 11 7 0 0 71.42
18.6 from Sohail Tanvir, yet another calamitous mix-up and Bond now sacrifices himself for Taylor - a drive out to cover and they come back for the two, but there was only ever one-and-a-half on at most 126/8

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Styris 32 30 21 3 2 152.38
7.1 and they've got the breakthrough! Taufel raises where Harper declined. Hafeez was down in position to sweep, moving outside off stump, and struck in front of middle. Fair enough, and that's timely to say the least 60/1
View dismissal Imran Nazir lbw b Patel 59 48 41 3 5 143.90
12.2 had to go this time - tried to sweep a faster delivery, swooping very low in doing so, and was rapped straight in front of off 96/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c †McCullum b Vettori 4 22 15 0 0 26.66
13.3 backed away to try to cut a straight one and got a thin edge through which McCullum snapped tidily 104/3
Shoaib Malik* not out 26 29 14 1 1 185.71
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Fulton b Bond 6 5 5 1 0 120.00
