View dismissal SR Watson b Mohammad Nawaz 15 27 1 0 55.55
7.6 bowled'em. The spinners have gained early impetus in the PSL. Watson steps away outside leg to manufacture swinging room. He misses the cut. Nawaz holds his own and hits the stumps. The ball wasn't shorter to be cut away. The zing bails go flying 28/3
View dismissal Sharjeel Khan c Mohammad Nabi b Zulfiqar Babar 10 11 0 1 90.90
4.6 Nabi makes no mistake here... Slides on the leg stump, Sharjeel shapes to sweep. He hits it into the lap of square leg. He din't look comfortable with the sweep on the first attempt as well 21/1
View dismissal Umar Amin c Wright b Umar Gul 0 4 0 0 0.00
6.2 Gul strikes in his first over! Shorter and not much room outside off. Amin still goes for a cut. Wright snaps up an impressive, low catch at backward point. He took it inches from the turf 24/2
View dismissal Babar Azam c Mohammad Nabi b Mohammad Nawaz 15 18 1 0 83.33
12.5 Azam nips down the track again, he does not meet the pitch. Neither does he account for the turn. He wants to slug it over the leg side. Instead, he skies a catch to Nabi at point. This is turning out to be a lovely spell from Nawaz 56/5
View dismissal SW Billings b Mohammad Nawaz 2 4 0 0 50.00
9.1 Look at the expression on Akram's face: 'What was that'? Flat and fired in, Billings attempts an ambitious reverse sweep but does not connect. These spinners, however, keep attacking the stumps 32/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Umar Gul b Anwar Ali 41 28 4 1 146.42
18.5 an element of revenge in the dismissal, though Anwar's celebrations are subdued. Banged in short, probably the slower one. Misbah was early into the pull. He scoops to short fine leg 120/7
View dismissal Imran Khalid c Mohammad Nabi b Mohammad Nawaz 4 6 0 0 66.66
14.2 Nawaz gets his fourth! Full and outside off, Khalid slogs it. The ball drops into the hands of Nabi at deep backward square leg. The Nawaz-Nabi combo works again 63/6

8.4 Khalid has KP lbw. The left-arm spinner nabs him. Slides in with the arm, KP plays for the spin and is pinned in front of off and middle. The finger goes up. The tracker shows that it would have hit the top of middle; it would have just caressed the bails 73/2
