0.1

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, Zaheer starts with a wide delivery outside off, a hint of swing away after pitching well outside off

0.1

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball outside off, crunched towards cover point where a diving Yuvraj stops it from racing away

0.2

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, length ball is guided down towards third man for a single

0.6

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, dropped, chance for Sehwag at slip, Zaheer finally gets his line right, just as people were being reminded of his infamous opening over in the 2003 World Cup final, batsman was playing across the line, gets the outside edge, went at a catchable height but well to the right of Sehwag, who gets his hands on it after diving but can't latch on, gets a second chance as he falls to the ground but he turfs it

Pakistan 13/0   Mohammad Hafeez 1* (3b)

2.1

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball on middle and leg, played towards midwicket

2.2

2.3

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, back of a length and moving in towards the off stump, played off the back foot towards backward point

2.4

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good line from Zaheer, heading for off stump that one, blocked towards extra cover, Hafeez is now 1 off 7, and has been put down once already

2.5

Khan to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, length ball outside off, Hafeez guides it down to third man for a single, five balls and one run this over from Zaheer, who has pulled it back after that forgettable first over

Pakistan 27/1   Mohammad Hafeez 2* (8b)

3.4

Pathan to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, calmly guided down to this third single down to third man

Pakistan 30/1   Mohammad Hafeez 3* (9b)

4.2

Balaji to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball outside off, pushed towards point by Hafeez

4.3

Balaji to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, another short one, Hafeez swivels as he pulls the ball along the ground towards deep square leg

4.6

Pakistan 36/2   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (12b)

5.2

Ashwin to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, from round the wicket, short of length ball on middle and leg, tapped to the leg side

5.3

Ashwin to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, worked towards wide mid-on for what should have been a single, a misfield there from Raina, allows the second, it could have been a tight one as well, Yuvraj was going to throw the ball to the keeper, then realises he should fire it in towards the non-striker's end, that gives Jamshed time to get back

5.4

Ashwin to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, nudged behind square leg

Pakistan 40/2   Mohammad Hafeez 7* (15b)

6.1

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, flat, length ball sliding towards middle, defended off the front foot

6.2

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, bit more air, pitched up and just outside off, pushed towards extra cover, Hafeez 7 off 17

6.3

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, a touch short from Yuvraj, it spins in towards Hafeez, who gets on the back foot and whacks it towards midwicket

6.6

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball is pushed towards extra cover, and just two off the over

Pakistan 44/3   Mohammad Hafeez 8* (19b)

7.2

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball angling in, guided off the backfoot towards backward point

7.3

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, more defence from Hafeez, who is struggling badly to get going

7.4

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, length ball that Hafeez wants to thrash to the leg side, that rolls towards long-on

Pakistan 46/3   Mohammad Hafeez 9* (22b)

8.4

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, pushed towards extra cover

8.5

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, length ball heading for middle for leg, worked towards deep square leg, Kohli rifles in the throw as Pakistan attempt a tight second, Dhoni looks to break the stumps without looking at them, he doesn't collect it properly though, would have been close that

8.6

Yuvraj Singh to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, bang! Hafeez stops pottering around, gets his first boundary with the innings almost halfway through, that is hammered towards midwicket, one bounce and over the ropes

Pakistan 56/4   Mohammad Hafeez 15* (25b 1x4)

9.2

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, a full toss just outside off, squeezed towards backward point

9.3

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 leg bye, full ball slanting down leg, the batsman had shuffled past the leg stump, and that thuds into his pads

9.5

Kohli to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Pakistan imploding here, Hafeez has played on here, and Kohli has struck with an innocuous delivery that takes out the leg stump, Hafeez had made room and wanted to steer that ball from beyond the leg stump to the off side, edged into the ground and then onto the stumps, Pakistan will need runs from the two Umars again

Mohammad Hafeez b Kohli 15 (48m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

Pakistan 59/5   Mohammad Hafeez 15 (28b 1x4)
