Pakistan tour of England and Scotland, 2006 / Wicket commentary

NatWest Series [Pakistan in England] - 4th match

England v Pakistan

England won by 8 wickets (with 22 balls remaining)

1.2

Lewis to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, pitched up, straighter and swinging away from Hafeez who throws his hands at the ball but edges it straight to Strauss at first slip, who takes it in front of his nose. A wicket for Lewis in his first over again - great comeback for England

Mohammad Hafeez c Strauss b Lewis 8 (6m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 11/1   Shahid Afridi 0* (0b)   J Lewis 0.2-0-2-1

3.2

Lewis to Younis Khan, OUT, GONE! Terrific delivery from Lewis pitching it right up to Younis; on middle-stump and swinging away, Younis edges it straight to Collingwood at second slip.

Younis Khan c Collingwood b Lewis 0 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 17/2   Shahid Afridi 6* (6b 1x6)   J Lewis 1.2-0-2-2

10.1

Mahmood to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone! Afridi falls this time as Mahmood pitches it up and he's trapped in front. That's as plumb as you get - absolutely dead. Lewis can breath a sigh of relief...and so can Clarke for that matter

Shahid Afridi lbw b Mahmood 23 (45m 27b 2x4 1x6) SR: 85.18

Pakistan 41/3   Mohammad Yousuf 5* (20b)   SI Mahmood 1.1-0-2-1

29.1

Yardy to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, GONE! Around the wicket, the arm ball - 79mph - and Yousuf chops it on! Massive wicket, and the end of a turgid 29 from Yousuf

Mohammad Yousuf b Yardy 29 (99m 80b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.25

Pakistan 115/4   Inzamam-ul-Haq 46* (54b 6x4)   MH Yardy 2.1-0-6-1

29.3

Yardy to Shoaib Malik, OUT, GONE! Malik drives this straight back to Yardy, at comfortable height, who makes no mistake. That was a pretty poor shot

Shoaib Malik c & b Yardy 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 115/5   Inzamam-ul-Haq 46* (54b 6x4)   MH Yardy 2.3-0-6-2

30.5

Dalrymple to Inzamam-ul-Haq, OUT, got him! That's the big one, as it were, as Dalrymple angles this into Inzamam's pads who chips it, without timing and in the air, back to the bowler who jumps across to take a very fine catch. What a blow that is

Inzamam-ul-Haq c & b Dalrymple 47 (78m 56b 6x4 0x6) SR: 83.92

Pakistan 117/6   Abdul Razzaq 1* (6b)   JWM Dalrymple 5.5-0-24-1

37.6

Yardy to Kamran Akmal, OUT, tries to guide the ball with the spin through to third man, but that's straight to Strauss at first slip for a soft dismissal. Pakistan are really up against it now

Kamran Akmal c Strauss b Yardy 10 (20m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Pakistan 138/7   Abdul Razzaq 12* (27b)   MH Yardy 7-1-21-3

45.2

Broad to Shoaib Akhtar, OUT, and it's up in the air as Shoaib tries to hit this over Broad's head, gets a leading edge down to Joyce at third man who runs in and takes a useful, albeit comfortable catch. Broad has his man.

Shoaib Akhtar c Joyce b Broad 10 (20m 19b 0x4 1x6) SR: 52.63

Pakistan 165/8   Abdul Razzaq 28* (52b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 6.2-1-32-1
