View dismissal MJ Horne b Abdul Razzaq 35 67 48 5 0 72.91
15.1 brilliant yorker, even the batsman thinks so, thru the gate, batsman playing over the top of it, middle stump knocked way out of the ground, Horne looks up and gives a somewhat unneeded nod of approval to the bowler 58/3
View dismissal NJ Astle b Shoaib Akhtar 3 24 18 0 0 16.66
5.3 the leg stump is laying on the ground, dead to the world, thru the gate, Astle has been put out of his misery 20/1
View dismissal CD McMillan c †Moin Khan b Wasim Akram 3 22 19 0 0 15.78
10.3 the usual crappy lack of footwork from McMillan, trying to slap the ball into the covers, jumping as well, outside edge, easy keeper's catch 38/2
View dismissal SP Fleming* b Shoaib Akhtar 41 93 57 5 0 71.92
33.5 Shoaib decides to take the fielders out of the equation, yorker sends the leg stump packing, simply brilliant bowling 152/4
View dismissal RG Twose c Ijaz Ahmed b Abdul Razzaq 46 101 83 3 0 55.42
39.3 Abdur coming around wicket, Twose gliding the flick away, great catch by ijaz leaping to his right at backward point, one handed to his right side, amazing catch from nowhere 176/5

View dismissal CZ Harris b Shoaib Akhtar 16 26 21 0 0 76.19

View dismissal AC Parore b Wasim Akram 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
46.4 stepping back to make room, late cut just clips the off bail, Parore the goose doesn't realise and is still running the second, wondering why Pakistan are hugging in the middle of the pitch 211/7
