ICC Cricket World Cup, 2nd Semi-Final: India v Pakistan at Mohali, Mar 30, 2011
ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final
India won by 29 runs
30 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Saeed Ajmal to Khan, 1 run, yet another doosra, Zaheer steps forward and defends into space at cover, and Raina immediately calls for the single

India 237/7   Z Khan 1* (1b)

Wahab Riaz to Khan, no run, hmm, interesting shot from Zaheer, he clears the left leg and then flings the bat out, apparently with his eyes shut. Doesn't get close to laying bat on ball


Wahab Riaz to Khan, 2 runs, well, same shot this time he manages to get bat on ball but that is a shocking effort! The ball loops up, and Zaheer is lucky to survive as it drops safely in the deep near cover. They're back for the second


Wahab Riaz to Khan, 1 wide, Riaz switches to round the wicket and attempts to fire in the yorker, but it's too far outside off


Wahab Riaz to Khan, no run, Zaheer is batting like a No. 11 out there, again he clears the left leg and swings the bat in hope. Past the outside edge. Well, no danger of the lbw at least!


Wahab Riaz to Khan, FOUR, this is comedic stuff! How has he hit that for four? Riaz fires one in full and fast, and it's a case of ball hitting bat, a leading edge loops over the infield and rolls to the wide third man boundary. Well, they're runs no matter how you get them


Wahab Riaz to Khan, no run, another ungainly swipe, Zaheer backing away to leg, and he hits nothing but fresh air. This is crazy batting

India 246/7   Z Khan 7* (6b 1x4)

Umar Gul to Khan, 1 run, another full toss and Zaheer, backing away to leg, manages to carve into the off side to get Raina back on strike


Umar Gul to Khan, 1 run, Zaheer slams a full toss down the ground ... and another great piece of fielding from Pakistan! Younis Khan it is this time, sliding across from long-off to save runs. Still, 250 up for India

India 250/7   Z Khan 9* (8b 1x4)

Wahab Riaz to Khan, no run, predictably, Zaheer clears the left leg, shuts the eyes and swings ... nowhere near it. He just needs to lay bat on ball!


Wahab Riaz to Khan, OUT, gone! Caught behind, it was only a matter of time. Another enormous heave, this time he does lay bat on ball but it's a thin edge and safely pouched by Kamran. Five wickets for Wahab Riaz in a World Cup semi-final!

Z Khan c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 9 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

India 256/8   Z Khan 9 (10b 1x4)
