ICC World Twenty20 - 20th match, Group 2

India v Pakistan

India won by 8 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)

15.3

Ashwin to Yasir Arafat, 1 run, length ball from over the stumps, a quicker one going straight on, played towards cover

15.5

Ashwin to Yasir Arafat, no run, pitched up, on middle and leg, worked in front of square leg

15.6

Ashwin to Yasir Arafat, 1 run, length ball outside off, guided towards deep backward point, 'two, two,' is the initial call but the batsmen realise there isn't a second, just four off that Ashwin over

Pakistan 109/6   Yasir Arafat 2* (3b)

16.1

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, no run, length ball outside off, guided towards backward point by Yasir Arafat

16.2

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, no run, back of a length ball outside off, bottom-edged to the off side

16.3

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, no run, shorter this time from Balaji, slapped towards Yuvraj at backward point

16.4

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, no run, the slower bouncer has Arafat baffled, the ball takes an age to arrive and Arafat can only weakly waft at it

16.5

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, FOUR, if it was to give Umar the strike, Arafat hasn't heeded it, he goes for a wild swipe to midwicket, top-edges it and that bounces once before going over the third man rope

16.6

Balaji to Yasir Arafat, 1 run, swings at it once more, towards deep midwicket, Kohli keeps them down to a single, which means Arafat remains on strike, only five off that over

Pakistan 114/6   Yasir Arafat 7* (9b 1x4)

17.1

Ashwin to Yasir Arafat, 1 run, Arafat does well to turn over the strike to Umar, works the ball to mid-on for a single

Pakistan 115/6   Yasir Arafat 8* (10b 1x4)

18.1

Khan to Yasir Arafat, OUT, short of length bowled wide of the crease, slapped towards Yuvraj at backward point, and that throw from Yuvraj is bang-on perfect, one bounce and hitting the top of middle, Zaheer was in position to collect the throw, he realised that was heading for the stumps and gets his hands out of the way, Arafat is an inch short, he is on his way, Yuvraj answering his critics here

Yasir Arafat run out 8 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Pakistan 115/8   Yasir Arafat 8 (11b 1x4)
