6.1

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, short of a length outside off, Kamran plays from the crease but covers the line to defend

6.2

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, Kamran trots out well before Sammy delivers, but doesn't get a ball full enough to drive. He ends up defending to the off side

6.3

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, bends his back and digs this in well short, Kamran is again outside the crease but then stands tall to defend

6.4

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, once again Kamran fidgets out, gets a delivery angling into the pads and works it wide of mid on

6.5

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, a hint of width outside off, Kamran looks to steer a single through point but there's not enough room to make the play.

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, two maidens on the trot. Kamran gets half forward and check drives a length ball to mid off

Pakistan 43/0   DJG Sammy 1-1-0-0
8.1

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, patent rubbish from Sammy. Drops a dawdling delivery short and wide outside off, and Kamran goes after it so hard he might end up doing a muscle or something. That wasn't cut, it was emphatically shredded through the covers

8.2

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, better length, Kamran gets forward and defends with an opened face into the off side

8.3

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, angling into the pads this time, Kamran stays put and defends to the leg side

8.4

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, comes slowly off the track as Sammy lands one back of a length outside off. Kamran looks at the toe end of the bat after mistiming the push into the covers off the back foot

8.5

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, complete lack of pace, movement or anything nearly costs Kamran his wicket. He mopes out of the crease and looks to slam Sammy across the line. The short of length ball misses the bat and goes through the bat-pad gap but misses the stumps

8.6

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, ends with a short of length ball outside off, Kamran stands tall and punches into the covers

Pakistan 55/0   DJG Sammy 2-1-4-0
10.1

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Sammy serves up another poor delivery, on the pads and angling further down in the early 120s kph. Hafeez helps it along with a dainty glance.

10.2

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, fuller and straighter, ends up on middle and off, Hafeez defends off the front foot into the covers

10.3

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, hint of width outside off, Hafeez gets forward and opens the face to steer it square for a single

10.4

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, 3 runs, top timing from Kamran. Back of a length ball that ended up on the pads, Kamran waited for it to come on and clipped it neatly through wide mid on.

10.5

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, fuller length on off stump, Hafeez looks to tip and run to the off side, but Kamran sends him back. Wants to do it in boundaries, I guess.

10.6

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slower ball on a length on off stump, Hafeez defends off the front foot

Pakistan 66/0   DJG Sammy 3-1-12-0
12.1

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, Sammy gets one to curve in a touch and Kamran flicks straight to midwicket

12.2

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, another slow offcutter, Kamran walks out and misses an ugly flat-footed swipe at it. The ball misses the off stump, but not by much.

12.3

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, better shot, gets behind the line and defends a length ball into the covers

12.4

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, 1 run, an inside edge this time. This one stays low as Sammy takes the pace off. Inside edge runs away to the leg side

12.5

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball outside off holds its line and Hafeez lets it go

12.6

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, width outside off, Hafeez plays a delicate steer to third man for a single

Pakistan 75/0   DJG Sammy 4-1-14-0
14.1

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, back of a length outside off, Kamran steers off the back foot to point

14.2

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, 2 runs, Kamran makes the adjustment this time, playing the steer a fraction later to beat point, and it is nearly four through deep backward point

14.3

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, no run, length ball, angling into the pads and worked straight to Pollard at midwicket

14.4

Sammy to Kamran Akmal, 1 run, 126.7 kph came off slower from short of a length, and Kamran punched it on the up through the covers for one

14.5

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, hint of an inducker from outside off, Hafeez covers the line with bat and pad as he defends

14.6

Sammy to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, that one stayed low, and Hafeez was in a spot of bother as he played back to it. He managed to work it away to the leg side for a single though

Pakistan 85/0   DJG Sammy 5-1-18-0
