Still waiting for the sawdust to be applied to everyone's satisfaction. Some friendly chat out in the middle among the batsmen and wicket-keeper Rizwan. There's always some jute matting being applied twenty-five yards back from the square in the bowler's run-up where it must be particularly puddly and spongy.Play about to resume.

SB: "Q for Mansoor Rana: Why did the PCB choose to send bright prospects for the future like Hammad Azam, Ehsan Adil, Usman Salahuddin, Raza Hassan to the U23 tournament and not the Pak Zim tour. Surely they need more first team experience - like what India did." Mansoor Rana: "Ehsan Adil has played Test cricket already, Hammad was on the verge of both tours, he's here to gain captaincy experience. Usman and Raza were not selected for Zimbabwe so they're in the U-23."

Afghanistan struggled, oh how they struggled in the first 20 overs, Hashmat Shaidi on debut, who ended with a valiant 52*, took 19 balls to get off the mark after coming in at 9 for 2. Pakistan's bowlers were insistent with line and length and all their bowlers created problems. Four stumpings showed the quality of spinners and 'keeper out there too. Pakistan's U-23 coach Mansoor Rana was with us earlier highlighting that very fact. Afghanistan have plenty to offer with the ball though and play will resume at 1.45 here at the Kallang in Singapore, 30 minutes from now. Thank you for being with us, we look forward to welcoming you back then.
