View dismissal Bismillah Khan c †Haddin b Mohammad Irfan 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 Irfan has struck, Bismillah was squared up completely and the finger has gone up but the batsman looks unhappy! Much shorter ball on leg stump and massive swing and bounce, Bismillah closed the face of the bat towards the leg side and it looked like the ball deviated so much that the keeper had to dive in front of first slip to take the catch. Haddin it was 0/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Badree b Mohammad Sami 64 39 9 1 164.10
16.3 and the show is over! Length and outside off, Shehzad premeditates as he shuffles across off. He can only lap-scoop it into the hands of short fine leg. Sami's slower ball gets Shehzad 147/5
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Asif Ali b Russell 18 18 0 1 100.00
5.1 and he strikes first ball, the credit should go to the fielder though - Asif Ali! KP looked to heave the ball hard towards the cow corner but he didn't middle it and Asif ran to his right from deep square leg to just about get his fingers under the dipping ball. Great catch! 33/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Imran Khalid b Russell 55 32 7 2 171.87
14.3 Khalid makes no mistake, he takes it at long-on now. Sanga steps out and backs away for a lofted hit. He can only drag this short ball from outside off to long-on. This may have stopped on the batsman as well 120/3
View dismissal Mohammad Nawaz (3) b Badree 7 5 0 1 140.00
15.4 take that for a riposte. This was a poor shot, though. This was neither too short nor too wide to cut. Skids off the surface on middle, Nawaz skips back for a cut, does not lay bat on ball. He hears the death rattle 135/4
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed*† c Smith b Mohammad Irfan 3 4 0 0 75.00
17.4 angled in on off, this is a slower one. Good change-up ball. Sarfraz goes for a big leg-side hoick. He can only top-edge into the lap of Smith at short third man. Dolly catch. Islamabad have pulled things back nicely 153/6
GD Elliott not out 12 9 0 1 133.33
View dismissal Anwar Ali c Khalid Latif b Russell 13 10 1 1 130.00
19.4 struck firmly but Khalid runs to his left from deep cover and snaps it up. Dug in short and outside off, Anwar stepped away and slapped it to Khalid. Hit-and-miss innings comes to an end 168/7

15.3 oh my, Smith has given it away! It was outside off and turning away a lot, Smith didn't get anywhere close to the pitch of the ball and only slogged to hand a top edge into the off side. Easy catch for KP at backward point 139/2
