View dismissal Irfan Ahmed c Khadka b Mukhiya 8 8 7 2 0 114.28
1.4 back of a length delivery, pitched outside off and holds the line. Mukhiya bowls this with a bit of some extra effort which got him some extra bounce which surprised Irfan. He stays on his crease and tries for a push to mid-off, outside edge and into the safe hands of Khadka at first slip. 16/1
View dismissal Waqas Barkat c Vesawkar b Khadka 25 48 29 2 0 86.20
11.3 flatter and quicker on off from round the wicket. Barkat stays on his crease and tries for a scoop. The pace of the delivery beats him and off the top edge towards the short third. Vesawkar dives to his left and takes a sensational catch to get rid off Barkat. 73/4
View dismissal JJ Atkinson*† c Sagar Pun b Karn 5 11 10 0 0 50.00
4.1 back of a length delivery, pitched on middle and moves away with the angle. Atkinson comes forward and tries to cut it from way outside leg, not that short and also played quite away from his body. It went flat towards point where Sagar dives to his front and took a good low catch. 25/2
View dismissal Nizakat Khan run out (Malla) 25 20 18 3 0 138.88
8.6 Gauchan to Waqas Barkat, length delivery, pitched outside off and Waqas drives it to cover, early call from Nizakat for a single which Waqas responded but later changed his mind. Malla gets under the ball and throws it to the non-striker's end and Nizakat nowhere near to it. A real mix up and ended up in a run out. 58/2
View dismissal MS Chapman c Karn b Mukhiya 8 27 13 0 0 61.53
15.4 That's the second one in a row for Mukhiya. Bouncer on middle and leg, he rocks back and goes for the pull over midwicket. He was too early at it and a top edge sails towards backward square leg. Man comes run in from the fence and dives it his front and holds it. 102/6
View dismissal Munir Dar c Gauchan b Mukhiya 20 17 17 0 2 117.64
15.3 attempted yorker on off, ended up with a fuller length delivery. Munir goes back and went for a big heave over the long-on region. He got the elevation not the distance. Gauchan settles under it near the fence and grabs it. 102/5
View dismissal Babar Hayat c Malla b Karn 10 13 11 1 0 90.90
18.2 length delivery on middle and leg from over the wicket. He rolled his fingers on it and it came quite slower than expected by Hayat. He went for a big swing over midwicket but it skies towards long-on and Malla holds a nice high catch. 118/7
View dismissal Tanwir Afzal run out (Malla) 25 19 14 0 2 178.57
19.6 from Mukhiya, length delivery pitched on off and straightens, driven along the ground to long-off. Tanwir just goes for that unwanted second which was never there. 143/7
