ICC World Twenty20 - 20th match, Group 2

India v Pakistan

India won by 8 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)

1.2

Pathan to Imran Nazir, OUT, he's gone this time, lbw, Nazir was miles down the track but the umpire is happy that was going on to hit the stumps, that was short of a length and pitching on middle, and replays show that straightened enough to hit the top of middle, Nazir was unhappy with the decision as he walked off

Imran Nazir lbw b Pathan 8 (8m 5b 2x4 0x6) SR: 160.00

Pakistan 17/1   Mohammad Hafeez 1* (3b)   IK Pathan 0.2-0-4-1

4.4

Balaji to Shahid Afridi, OUT, the Afridi experiment is over, he has picked out the deep square leg fielder, another short one from Balaji, Afridi pulls and connects well this done, not well enough to clear the rope though, Raina gets under that one and safely pouches it

Shahid Afridi c Raina b Balaji 14 (15m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Pakistan 35/2   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (11b)   L Balaji 0.4-0-2-1

6.4

Yuvraj Singh to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, the magic of Yuvraj works again! a wicket in his first over, and it is the important one of Nasir Jamshed, who was looking to heave the ball from outside off to the leg side, he edges it through to Dhoni who is absolutely convinced there is bat involved, the umpire agrees and Pakistan are three down

Nasir Jamshed c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 4 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 43/3   Mohammad Hafeez 8* (18b)   Yuvraj Singh 0.4-0-1-1

8.2

Yuvraj Singh to Kamran Akmal, OUT, another one for Yuvraj! Kamran Akmal is gone this time, that was pitched up by Yuvraj, just outside off, Kamran looks to hammer it through cover, a thin edge through to Dhoni, who throws up the ball in celebration even before appealing

Kamran Akmal c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 5 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Pakistan 49/4   Mohammad Hafeez 9* (22b)   Yuvraj Singh 1.2-0-4-2

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   Shoaib Malik 3* (3b)   V Kohli 1.5-0-5-1

15.2

Ashwin to Shoaib Malik, OUT, the end of Malik, and not the best of strokes from him to end a fluent innings, a length ball from round the wicket, Malik swipes at it, only as far as midwicket, who takes the catch chest high,that was off the toe end of the bat, just as Pakistan seemed to be getting some momentum, they lose another wicket

Shoaib Malik c Sharma b Ashwin 28 (29m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 127.27

Pakistan 106/6   Umar Akmal 20* (15b 1x6)   R Ashwin 2.2-0-12-1

17.3

Ashwin to Umar Akmal, OUT, another one down, a touch short from Ashwin, Umar Akmal shaped up for a big mow, it seemed like the right ball to dispatch, he doesn't get enough on it though and Raina collects it and looks to the crowd, cupping his ear to suggest he can't hear them, a frustrated Umar bangs his bat on the track

Umar Akmal c Raina b Ashwin 21 (31m 18b 0x4 1x6) SR: 116.66

Pakistan 115/7   Yasir Arafat 8* (10b 1x4)   R Ashwin 3.3-0-16-2

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   Umar Gul 0* (3b)   Z Khan 2.1-0-15-0

19.3

Balaji to Umar Gul, OUT, a high full toss from around the stumps this time, Gul could have smashed that where he liked, instead he gets an edge on it and the ball swirls to Dhoni, can Pakistan at least last the full 20 overs?

Umar Gul c †Dhoni b Balaji 12 (10m 10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

Pakistan 128/9   Saeed Ajmal 1* (1b)   L Balaji 3.3-0-22-2

19.4

Balaji to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, no, they can't! Pakistan are bowled out for 128, Ajmal looks to paddle his first delivery to fine leg, he doesn't quite get hold of it and Dhoni has another simple catch

Saeed Ajmal c †Dhoni b Balaji 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 128/10   Raza Hasan 0* (0b)   L Balaji 3.4-0-22-3
