View dismissal AP Devcich c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Wahab Riaz 26 66 38 2 0 68.42
14.3 89.4 mph, edged for the keeper, Wahab has removed the settled batsman! The length delivery nipped in from outside off, Devcich chased it without any footwork, played the wrong line as it came in and got an inside edge for the keeper. That's drinks now 63/3
View dismissal DG Brownlie c Ahmed Shehzad b Mohammad Irfan 14 25 14 2 0 100.00
5.5 87.9 mph, that's the first breakthrough and a very good catch at point from Shehzad! Too wide outside off, Brownlie chased with a swish uppishly and the ball was dipping towards point but Shehzad dived to his right, almost full length, to catch it 26/1
View dismissal KS Williamson* c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Irfan 10 21 19 2 0 52.63
9.6 88.6 mph, the short ball does it, KW pulls and gets a leading edge to send it high for an easy catch for the keeper! The short balls were not stopping, KW decided to pull after leaving the previous one and got a top edge this time, Sarfraz takes a couple of steps toward slips and catches it 44/2

View dismissal TWM Latham run out (Younis Khan/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 13 32 20 0 0 65.00
24.4 Shahid Afridi to Taylor, it's over, it's all over! Taylor wanted to take a single with a dab to cover but he didn't realise how close it was to the fielder. Younis comes in quickly and flicks it underarm to the keeper who takes the bails off in a nanosecond. Latham dived full length but it was of no avail. He has to go 99/4
View dismissal JDS Neesham lbw b Shahid Afridi 1 12 8 0 0 12.50
28.1 59.1 mph, that's a very very good shout for lbw from round the wicket! They are going for a review after Aleem Dar said no. Neesham didn't have a clue. This was tossed up but Neesham stayed back, then pushed tamely outside the line.. This one turned in and hit the pads in front of the middle. That is hitting leg stump. It looked out the moment his missed it. Bad one for Dar, good one for Lala 111/5
View dismissal L Ronchi c Younis Khan b Mohammad Irfan 23 44 27 4 0 85.18
37.4 88.6 mph, oh he's given it away and that's a great catch from Younis running back! It was a short ball again, Ronchi pulled half-heartedly and the leading edge went high on the leg side. Younis ran towards the boundary from midwicket and caught it with a dive near the 30-yard circle with this arms stretched outwards 155/6
View dismissal DL Vettori b Wahab Riaz 27 35 25 3 0 108.00
45.4 89.6 mph, bang on target, hits the stumps! Wahab replies with a superb ball on the stumps and Vettori misses it this time. He shuffled too far across for the full delivery that was swinging in towards middle, looked to work it on leg but missed and was bowled the way he was in the 2nd T20 213/7

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez b Mills 6 22 17 0 0 35.29
4.5 80.2 mph, superb delivery to get rid of Hafeez, who was not looking good today! It had the scrambled seam on length outside off, Hafeez moved towards the ball and left a gap between bat and ball which the ball sneaked through, deflected off the pad and hit the stumps 13/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Vettori 28 54 41 5 0 68.29
12.5 59.5 mph, Vettori has struck, Shehzad is gone! That was the arm ball sliding in towards the stumps from outside off, Shehzad went way back in the crease and covered his stumps, the ball came in struck him right in front of the stumps past the bat, finger went up immediately. Pakistan decide not to review it 40/3
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Devcich b Neesham 5 27 17 0 0 29.41
11.4 84.2 mph, that's a simple catch for Devcich at point, Shafiq's scratchy innings is over! Short of good length outside off, he cut it straight to Devcich for a waist-high catch 40/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c Brownlie b Vettori 4 25 14 0 0 28.57
17.2 59.0 mph, oh another one! Younis has swept this straight to deep backward square leg. It was a late decision on Younis' part. He was upright and went down very quickly, possibly that was the reason he didn't get the control on it. Hits it hard, hits it flat .. straight to the fielder 52/4
Haris Sohail not out 85 158 109 5 1 77.98
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Vettori b Neesham 13 24 23 1 0 56.52
25.2 84.9 mph, oh my Vettori! What a stunner that is! And we thought he had fitness issues! Misbah wanted to go over the infield but gets a toe-end to his attempted loft.. But this was still going away from Vettori at mid-on.. He runs backwards and stretches his left-arm out to pluck out this one from nowhere. Excellent grab 86/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Milne b McCullum 26 20 19 3 0 136.84
30.2 54.0 mph, is that the end of the challenge! Sir Faraz wanted to whack it over wide long-on.. Just didn't get enough of it. The fielder was standing right at the edge of the boundary and Milne gobbles it up. 124/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi run out (Taylor) 61 81 51 7 1 119.60
47.5 from Neesham, direct hit and this could be tight! Afridi hits it straight to Taylor at cover and takes off immediately. There was no single in there. Once Taylor hit, it was over for him. He gets a standing ovation for a superb 61 234/7
