View dismissal Imran Nazir c Harbhajan Singh b Nehra 20 17 17 4 0 117.64
4.2 India strike. The Indian section in the crowd roar. Imran Nazir falls after a delightful cameo. It bounced from short of length on the off stump line, angling away, Imran went for the pull but top edged it to mid-on where Harbhajan screams in joy after taking it. A thrilling innings, that promised so much more, comes to an end. 29/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Nehra 19 39 22 3 0 86.36
8.5 Dragged on! It was pushed across Akmal who went for the forcing shot on the off side but ended up dragging it to his stumps . He didn't pick the length properly this time. The batsman always feels a touch unlucky when he gets out this way but that's that. he was looking pretty solid out there but he is gone now. 53/2
View dismissal Younis Khan* c †Dhoni b Singh 20 50 33 3 0 60.60
14.4 That round the stumps angle works for RP. He started it during the tour of England, it helped him then and it has helped him now. It straightened a bit outside off from back of length and Younis nowhere close to the ball, lunged out at it and stabbed it off the outer edge to Dhoni. India have got back into the game really well after that fine start from Akmal and Imran. 65/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Pathan b Harbhajan Singh 128 173 126 16 0 101.58
48.6 he holes out after a potentially match-winning knock. he charged down the track but lifts it straight to long-on. He was under huge pressure from critics before this game, started slowly but steadily grew in confidence to play several sparkling shot later on. Well played sir. 300/7
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf b Nehra 87 128 88 7 0 98.86
45.6 Done in by the slightly slower one. Yousuf moved outside leg and went through with the cut shot too early. He is not too happy with himself but what a fine innings this has been. He was the man who turned things around for Pakistan today. In his last nine ODI innings he had scored 185 - average 20.55, highest 43 .. what a time to turn it all around. Classy knock. Great to watch. Enter Shahid Afridi. 271/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Dhoni b Pathan 4 3 2 1 0 200.00
46.6 And he is gone now. He moved outside leg stump and tried to force it to the off side but edged it to Dhoni. Four and out. Afridi has come and gone. 278/5

View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Younis Khan) 57 59 46 7 2 123.91
13.5 Umar Gul to Dravid, Gambhir is run out! It was pushed towards mid-off where Younis Khan swoops on the ball and fires in a direct hit to take out Gambhir. Have to see the replay to see who called whom. Neither batsman ran too far out but Gambhir couldn't get back in time. There was no run it as Younis was standing pretty close.. huge strike for Pakistan. Gambhir was batting like a dream but he is gone now. Ok replays in. Dravid took couple of steps with the shot and shouted out no .. Gambhir too had not run far off but he didn't make frantic effort to get back in.... 90/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 8 19 14 1 0 57.14
4.1 Aamer has taken out Sachin. Aamer is delighted to say the least as he looks up to the skies and screams in joy. It was slightly slower perhaps, cutting away from Tendulkar who pushes at it but the ball angles away, kisses the edge and Akmal lunges to his right to take the catch. What a start from the youngster. Tendulkar was caught at the crease; neither forward nor back , was dragged sideways and succumbed. 23/1
View dismissal R Dravid run out (Umar Gul/†Kamran Akmal) 76 160 103 4 0 73.78
41.6 from Naved-ul-Hasan, Dravid is run out. It was a low dipping slower one, full outside off, Dravid lunged out to drive it through covers. Harbhajan called him for the third run and sent him back ... yes and no ... Dravid is also cramped up as he tries to get back and lunges in the end but Akmal breaks the stumps. Good throw from Gul from the deep. Third umpire says, rightly, that's out. Dravid looks pretty shattered as he walks back. Good innings ... close but no cigar 238/7
View dismissal V Kohli c Umar Gul b Shahid Afridi 16 28 24 1 0 66.66
21.3 Kohli rushes down the track and lofts it high towards long-off where Gul is stationed. Gul back-pedals to catch it but it bounds off his palms .. Gul swoops down to catch it but it again bounces off his palms but he nails it the third time! 126/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† lbw b Shahid Afridi 3 8 9 0 0 33.33
23.5 Afridi nails his man this time. He had a huge shout for lbw few balls before but Dhoni survived that. Dhoni again skipped down the track and yet again, missed the wristy dab to the on side. The ball turned towards the middle stump and hit him low on the pad. Taufel sends Dhoni on his way. Two quick wickets and Pakistan move ahead in the contest. That's plumb. It would have taken out the middle 133/4
View dismissal SK Raina lbw b Saeed Ajmal 46 49 41 5 2 112.19
34.6 really quick delivery, almost a yorker gets Raina who is not too pleased. He reckons there is some inside edge. Pad or bat first. First quick replay is not too conclusive. He was trying to dig it out and it hit both bat and pad. What did it hit first? Will confirm after replays. Huge wicket. Raina was playing very well. This fascinating game continues to see-saw.

Replays in. Tough to call here. there was boot, bat and ball all close together! and then the bat and pad jammed almost simultaneously. Very close call .. Bob Willis reckons there was no boot and it hit the bat marginally ahead of pad. Not every one is sure. Very tough call. 205/5
View dismissal YK Pathan c sub (Misbah-ul-Haq) b Mohammad Amir 5 14 10 0 0 50.00
38.2 And Yusuf edges straight to that lone wide, almost third, slip! Aamer strikes. It was full and moving away from Yusuf who tries to swing it over mid-on and gets a fat edge. Gone! 218/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh b Saeed Ajmal 13 34 22 1 0 59.09
44.5 Pakistan win by 54 runs! Harbhajan Singh goes for the reverse sweep and misses it completely. And the crowd rush into the middle and the players who were about to get into a celebratory huddle rush away to the safety of the boundary. Fine win for Pakistan. Yousuf and Malik set it up with their outstanding partnership before the bowlers did enough to do the job. 248/10
