India won by 8 wickets (with 17 balls remaining) (D/L method)

2.4

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball just outside off, Hafeez is beaten by that one

2.5

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short and wide outside off, Hafeez slaps it towards point, was in the air for a while but falls short of the fielder there

2.6

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, full ball just outside off stump, carefully blocked down the track, a wicket maiden for Bhuvneshwar

Pakistan 4/1   Mohammad Hafeez 0* (3b)

3.2

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, pitched up and outside off, 133.7kph from Umesh, Hafeez is invited to drive, another thick edge, down towards third man for another single

3.4

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, outside off, length ball, stays a bit lower than Akmal expected, he flails at it outside off and misses

3.5

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, pitched up once more, 139.2kph, Akmal defends that, bounces near his foot and goes back towards Umesh

3.6

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of length ball is clipped off the back foot towards midwicket, a smart stop there

Pakistan 7/1   Mohammad Hafeez 1* (7b)

5.1

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of length ball, 140kph, just outside off, guided towards backward point

5.2

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, closer to off, similar length, steered down towards third man for a single

5.5

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, lovely stroke from Hafeez there, pitched up and outside off, gets a good stride in and drives that past cover for four

5.6

Yadav to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, short ball, 138.6kph, Hafeez goes for the pull, connects well, and that is running away towards the deep square leg boundary, Ishant runs across but he can't get there in time

Pakistan 17/1   Mohammad Hafeez 10* (11b 2x4)

6.3

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, another boundary, but not much credit to the batsman for that one, it was short and wide from Bhuvneshwar, Hafeez goes for the cut, gets a thick under edge and it is rolls to the left of Dhoni for four

6.4

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball just outside off, solid defence from Hafeez

6.5

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of length outside off, defended off the front foot towards cover

6.6

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, stays a touch lower this time, short and well outside off, Hafeez looks to cut but that sneaks under his bat, no bottom edge even this time

Pakistan 26/1   Mohammad Hafeez 14* (15b 3x4)

7.6

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, on the pads, not the best line from Ishant, glanced down to fine leg for four, Pakistan picking up momentum here

Pakistan 35/1   Mohammad Hafeez 18* (16b 4x4)

8.4

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, feels for that one outside off, Hafeez lucky not to get an edge through to the keeper, not too much movement for Bhuvneshwar just a hint of curve away this time, enough to beat Hafeez

8.5

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball outside off, defended towards cover off the front foot

8.6

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, pitched up by Bhuvneshwar accurate as ever, that was homing in on off stump, defended to the off side

Pakistan 36/1   Mohammad Hafeez 18* (19b 4x4)

9.4

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, short of length ball outside off, cleverly done by Hafeez, he walks across the stumps and clips that behind square leg for four, doesn't try to hit that too hard

9.5

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, pitched up on off stump, Hafeez nudges the ball towards square leg for two more

9.6

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, a bit of movement away after pitching outside off, Hafeez shoulders arms

Pakistan 43/1   Mohammad Hafeez 24* (22b 5x4)

10.2

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, a rare wide delivery from Bhuvneshwar, it was pitched up and Hafeez went for the big drive, he can't connect

10.3

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, reverts to that off stump line, length delivery is defended to the off side

10.4

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, short of length ball on middle stump, slapped towards deep backward square leg

Pakistan 45/1   Mohammad Hafeez 25* (25b 5x4)

11.1

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball on off, defended towards the off side

11.2

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, an appeal for caught-behind after Ishant send the ball down the leg side, think it took the pad on the way to Dhoni

11.3

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, worked towards midwicket for an easy single

11.5

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball on off stump, defended to the right of the bowler

11.6

I Sharma to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, short of length ball outside off, punched through covers but there is a sweeper cover in place, Pakistan's 50 comes up

Pakistan 50/1   Mohammad Hafeez 27* (30b 5x4)

12.1

Kumar to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, wicket first ball after the interruption, Bhuvneshwar strikes, it was a length ball outside off, Hafeez flirts with it and gets an edge, Dhoni dives to his right to take a low one-handed catch
