    73.4 Kaushal snaffles Masood. Undone by alarming spin and flight. Looped up outside off, Masood nips down the track and misses as the ball spins past the face of the bat. Chandimal whips the bails off before he could turn back and ground his bat. End of a gritty innings from Masood. Waqar Younis pats Masood on the back 255/3
    1.3 that off stump has been surviving as nervously as the batsmen, biting its nails off. And now it takes a ferocious hit. Lakmal gets the ball back into Shehzad, who isn't ready for that kind of movement. He's late in bringing the bat down, his feet are still stuck on leg stump. Big gap provided. Big gap exploited 0/1
    6.6 that's unfortunate! He's been snaffled down the leg side. Clear edge as he looks to whip a shortish delivery that was addressed to fine leg's next door neighbour. Should have put it away to the boundary, instead walks back shaking his head 13/2
