7.1

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, no run, Ishant starts off his spell with a length ball that is defended to the off side

7.2

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, no run, fuller and on the pads, Akmal looks to glance that to fine leg but can't time it properly

7.3

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, back of length ball outside off, cracked past point for four by Akmal, gets well forward as he plays that square drive

7.5

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, 1 run, short of length and outside off, driven towards extra cover for a single

Pakistan 35/1   I Sharma 1-0-9-0

9.1

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, no run, length ball just outside off, flayed towards mid-off by Akmal, powerfully struck but not placed well enough

9.2

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, no run, short of length, keeps it around off stump, 131kph, pushed towards cover this time

9.3

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, 1 run, on middle stump, tucked toward mid-on for a quick single, not much happening for Ishant here

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   I Sharma 2-0-16-0

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

11.4

I Sharma to Kamran Akmal, 1 run, short ball, an awkward-looking pull from Kamran, connects well enough to fetch him a single

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

29.2

I Sharma to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, short of length ball on leg stump, worked towards square leg

29.3

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, short of length ball and outside off, Malik slams that past point for four

29.4

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, no run, Dhoni uses his pads like a hockey goalkeeper, not trying to catch that one as it awkwardly bounces through to him after beating Malik, just puts his pads in the ball to stop that one, that one from Ishant hit a crack on the pitch to stay low

29.5

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, 1 wide, slides that down the leg side

29.5

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, no run, length ball on off stump, defended down the track

29.6

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, no run, shortish ball outside off, bounced more than Malik expected, Malik was looking to thrash that through the off side, he misses

Pakistan 126/4   I Sharma 4-0-26-0

31.1

I Sharma to Asad Shafiq, OUT, down the leg side, India appeal for a caught-behind as Shafiq stays in the crease and looks to glance that one, umpire turns it down, after discussing with some of the others, Dhoni goes for a review, that looked a good decision on the first replay, seemed to have only taken the pad but the HotSpot shows a thin inside edge, and that is another terrific review by India, Shafiq is dismissed

Asad Shafiq c †Dhoni b I Sharma 41 (64m 57b 3x4 0x6) SR: 71.92

31.2

I Sharma to Umar Amin, 1 run, short of length ball on leg stump, worked towards square leg for a single

31.3

I Sharma to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, on the pads, Ishant hoping to get another caught-behind down the leg side? tucked behind square for a single

31.5

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, length ball just outside off, defended off the back foot to the off side

31.6

I Sharma to Umar Amin, 1 run, full and well outside of, slapped towards sweeper cover for a single

Pakistan 136/5   I Sharma 5-0-31-1

35.1

I Sharma to Umar Amin, FOUR, full and wide, Amin slashes that over point for four, good start for Pakistan

35.2

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, short of length ball outside off, looks to slap it through the off side but misses

35.3

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, length ball angling in towards off stump, defended down the track

35.4

I Sharma to Umar Amin, 2 runs, worked towards deep midwicket, should have been a single, but Karthik looked up to see whether the batsmen were taking a second, took his eyes off the ball and misfields, conceding the second

35.5

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, back of length ball outside off, looks to slap it past point but misses

35.6

I Sharma to Umar Amin, 2 runs, short of length once more, driven towards deep extra cover

Pakistan 149/7   I Sharma 6-0-39-1

38.1

I Sharma to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, diving take at short cover by Rohit, Ajmal has struggled to score today and his innings is over, it was a shortish delivery from Ishant, Ajmal backed away and flat-batted it, doesn't middle it and Rohit snaps up a low chance

Saeed Ajmal c RG Sharma b I Sharma 5 (19m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

38.2

I Sharma to Junaid Khan, OUT, length ball on off stump, punched towards mid-off, batsmen scamper a single, but have they made it? India seem certain that Kohli direct hit has got Junaid run out, and with good reason too, replays show Junaid is just short as the stump is literally broken, how good is India's fielding in this tournament? Pakistan lose their ninth

Junaid Khan run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

38.3

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, short of length ball outside off, Amin looks to cut that one but misses out

38.4

I Sharma to Umar Amin, no run, short of length once more, the usual Ishant length, defended from the crease to the off side

38.5

I Sharma to Umar Amin, 1 run, length ball angling into the stumps, Amin makes room and scoops that towards deep midwicket, drops short of Karthik there

38.6

I Sharma to Mohammad Irfan, no run, no footwork there as he nonchalantly defends a length delivery to the off side

Pakistan 160/9   I Sharma 7-0-40-2
