View dismissal WTS Porterfield* st †Sultan Ahmed b Khawar Ali 29 53 28 3 1 103.57
11.4 gone this time! Round the wicket, looping through the gate as Porterfield has a wild mow with his head pointing in the direction of Sir Edmund Hilary's flag. A smart gather behind the stumps and the bails are off before you can blink 84/2
View dismissal PR Stirling c Zeeshan Maqsood b Aamir Kaleem 29 31 22 6 0 131.81
6.3 stunning catch! Zeeshan Maqsood has clung onto a blinder at short cover, but the umpires are checking for something... the soft signal is out, but let's see if it was grounded on impact with the turf... he flung himself high and handsomely to his left, Jonty Rhodes-esque hang time, and surely that was deeply embedded in his knuckles as he crashed to the turf! He's gone! Oman have their wicket, and in incredible style! 48/1
View dismissal GC Wilson b Ansari 38 42 34 5 0 111.76
15.6 splattered! Flung onto the perfect length, Wilson had a swing without getting his feet to the ball, and his stumps are pleasingly spread-eagled! Quite the comeback over from Ansari. Two wickets and six runs ... 118/4
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c Mehran Khan b Ansari 16 16 11 1 0 145.45
15.1 flogged across the line, a spiralling top-edge - the ball needs oxygen at this altitude - and an effortless pouch at backward square leg brings to an end an enterprising cameo 112/3
View dismissal KJ O'Brien b Ansari 14 22 12 1 0 116.66
19.3 bowled him! O'Brien was too busy dancing at the crease to find time actually to play a stroke to this one. In the end the ball was into his stumps before he could readjust into an orthodox stroke! 143/5

View dismissal Zeeshan Maqsood b KJ O'Brien 38 45 33 6 0 115.15
10.4 inside-edged and Maqsood is gone! He was never entirely comfortable against O'Brien's round-the-wicket wiles, another forcing shot through the off-side, but this time he shivers his own timbers! 78/2
View dismissal Khawar Ali b KJ O'Brien 34 37 26 4 2 130.76
8.3 too much excitement for Khawar! A loose prod towards third man, misses everything, and OBrien has his revenge! 69/1
View dismissal Jatinder Singh b Rankin 24 45 26 1 0 92.30
18.1 full length, and Rankin strikes! Jatinder has a slog across the line and loses his leg stump ... that is a big moment ... 137/6
View dismissal Adnan Ilyas c Stirling b Sorensen 4 8 7 0 0 57.14
12.4 outside off, an attempted glide through third man, but Sorensen's extra height takes the splice for Stirling at point to dive forward and gather a looping edge 86/3
View dismissal Mehran Khan c Porterfield b McBrine 2 3 4 0 0 50.00
13.3 a humungous wipe across the line - the ball flies high into the Himalayan sky, dancing with the midgies under the floodlights, and nestles serenely in the hands of short midwicket. The curtains are being drawn ... 89/4
View dismissal Aamir Kaleem lbw b McBrine 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
13.6 big appeal, wicket to wicket, a very loose pokey steer across the line, but his front foot was planted and there was nowhere to go but straight back to the pavilion 90/5
View dismissal Amir Ali c †NJ O'Brien b Sorensen 32 34 17 5 1 188.23
19.4 oh lummie! Sorensen gets it right this time, a full length ball, a backaway-and-swipe, and up goes the finger! Amir has taken his team to the brink, but his team-mates will have to take it home ... 152/8
View dismissal Sultan Ahmed*† run out (†NJ O'Brien) 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
18.4 from Rankin, oh Sultan! Desperate to get off the strike, but there was never a run there and O'Brien lobs up to the stumps to do the needful ... 139/7
