1.2

Osinde to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, drags this short and Hafeez plays a crunching pull over midwicket

1.3

Osinde to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, And again. Short and ready to be whacked. More lollypops, wonder whether they are still popular in Canada. I don't see much of them in India anymore. It sucks. Meanwhile, Hafeez, swivels back to play a rollicking pull shot. Pretty stylish execution.

3.1

Osinde to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Given out and Hafeez goes for UDRS. LBW. It landed on a good length outside off stump and moved in to hit the pad above the knee roll in front of leg and middle stump. The height was in question. And would it have hit the leg stump? Hawk eye says it would have clipped the top of the leg stump. And that has been given out.

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Osinde 11 (16m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Pakistan 16/1   Mohammad Hafeez 11 (12b 2x4)
