View dismissal Irfan Ahmed c Vala b Gavera 8 5 6 0 1 133.33
1.2 And dangerous Irfan Ahmed back into the hut. Back of a length delivery which shapes back in after pitching on off. He stays on his crease and went for a big heave over midwicket, loses the control and ball skies to deep square leg where Vala settles under it and holds it comfortably. 9/1
View dismissal Waqas Barkat*† c CR Amini b Gavera 5 9 6 1 0 83.33
1.6 And that's a very poor shot after a good looking drive, just gone through it! it was on a length on middle and leg. Waqas stays on his back foot and tries to clear the in-field but got a top edge and it skies towards midwicket where Amini runs to his right and grabs it to remove his counterpart. 13/2
View dismissal Tanwir Afzal c Vala b Gavera 1 12 3 0 0 33.33
