View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Sikandar Raza b Chatara 1 8 9 0 0 11.11
1.6 81.5 mph, got him! He was out for a duck in the previous game, and this time he's out for 1. It's a short ball and he swivels to pull from outside off, but he only succeeds in giving square leg an easy catch at knee height 1/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c †Taylor b Chatara 0 17 11 0 0 0.00
3.5 86.5 mph, he's struck with an absolute peach! That was angled in, and it took off from a length, and nipped away just a touch. Kissed the outside edge, high up on the bat, and carried through to the keeper at shoulder height. Shehzad had to play at it, because it was very close to off stump, but if you want to fault him you'd point to his lack of footwork 4/2
View dismissal Haris Sohail c Williams b Sikandar Raza 27 85 44 2 0 61.36
20.1 51.6 mph, and he strikes first ball! With a long-hop! Haris snatched at that pull, and hit it straight to short midwicket 58/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Williams b Chatara 73 191 121 3 0 60.33
46.1 76.9 mph, and that is that. No century for Misbah, won't get anywhere near it. Sees him backing away and bowls it full at his feet. Went for the whippy pick-up shot and ended up spooning it straight into long-on's hands 202/7
View dismissal Umar Akmal b Williams 33 53 42 3 0 78.57
33.3 57.2 mph, whoa, bowled him! That was a flat, quick ball that straightened past the outside edge to hit top of off. Akmal made it look an even better delivery than it actually was, because he had moved inside the line and was trying to push that inside-out through cover 127/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Williams 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
33.5 53.9 mph, whataball, whatabowler! Sean Williams does it again! Angled it in flat towards middle and off, and it turned away, past Afridi's defensive bat, and crashed into the top of off stump. Wow. What a birthday gift that was for Lala. 127/5
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c & b Mupariwa 21 19 17 2 0 123.52
38.2 71.0 mph, got him! Back of a length, angling into the body, and Maqsood looked to whip it away through midwicket. It straightened off the pitch, and popped off the leading edge back to the bowler 155/6

View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c Haris Sohail b Mohammad Irfan 9 19 18 2 0 50.00
4.4 84.3 mph, gone! Poor technique from Chibhabha, swayed away to leave the short ball but left the bat pointing up, and ended up popping a simple catch to second slip 14/1
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Haris Sohail b Mohammad Irfan 8 29 15 0 0 53.33
6.4 87.9 mph, and another simple catch to second slip. Short, close to the body. Raza looked to make room and poke it away into the off side but it got big on him, hit the shoulder of his bat, and popped to Haris at a comfortable chest height 22/2
View dismissal H Masakadza c Misbah-ul-Haq b Mohammad Irfan 29 71 54 4 0 53.70
21.2 84.4 mph, down the track, and Masakadza throws it away. Brilliantly caught by Misbah. Goes for a big shot and it's always angling away and he wasn't really to the pitch of it. Skies it a long way up, and Misbah backtracks from mid-off and falls onto his back as he catches it in front of his chest. Comes up with a broad grin, half delighted, half bemused. 74/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor c †Umar Akmal b Wahab Riaz 50 95 72 6 0 69.44
29.3 87.5 mph, got him. That isn't the greatest delivery, back of a length down the leg side, and Taylor gets a tickle through to the keeper while trying to play the leg glance 128/4
View dismissal SC Williams c Ahmed Shehzad b Rahat Ali 33 53 32 2 0 103.12
33.2 84.0 mph, gone! What has Williams done? That was short, too close to the body to really control the cut, and he scooped it straight into Shehzad's hands at backward point. He caught that over his head, with two hands, and then gestured to his teammates to say he didn't pick it up until the last moment 150/5
View dismissal CR Ervine c †Umar Akmal b Wahab Riaz 14 45 29 1 0 48.27
39.2 87.1 mph, edged, and it sticks in Akmal's gloves again. It's shortish outside off and he goes for the slash and gets a thick nick that Akmal catches at shoulder height to his left 168/7
View dismissal SF Mire c †Umar Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 8 14 14 0 0 57.14
36.4 80.4 mph, he's struck again. That's Irfan's fourth. Perfect delivery, back of a length, close to off stump. Mire fishes uncertainly, not too far from his body, and it kisses the shoulder of his bat and Akmal takes a simple catch behind the wicket. He rolled his fingers over, and that moved away just a touch off the pitch 166/6
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c †Umar Akmal b Wahab Riaz 35 60 35 4 0 100.00
49.4 66.1 mph, banged in short, Chigumbura goes for the hook, and top-edges it through to Akmal, who takes his fifth catch of the match, and Zimbabwe have been bowled out 215/10
View dismissal T Mupariwa c †Umar Akmal b Wahab Riaz 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
39.4 87.7 mph, and another! Caught Akmal bowled Wahab once again. It's fuller this time, on off stump, and it actually came in off the pitch as Mupariwa aimed a drive on the up, and took the outside edge, high up on the bat, and nestled in the keeper's gloves at chest height 168/8
View dismissal T Panyangara run out (†Umar Akmal/Wahab Riaz) 10 43 28 0 0 35.71
49.3 from Wahab Riaz, now the batsman goes the other way, shuffling across his crease. Wahab bowls it short on middle stump again, he swivels to pull, misses, and they try to steal a bye and Akmal rolls it at the stumps, misses, but the bowler picks it up and hurls it at the bowler's end, hits the stumps there, and catches Panyangara short of his crease 215/9
