Nehra to Imran Nazir, OUT, India strike. The Indian section in the crowd roar. Imran Nazir falls after a delightful cameo. It bounced from short of length on the off stump line, angling away, Imran went for the pull but top edged it to mid-on where Harbhajan screams in joy after taking it. A thrilling innings, that promised so much more, comes to an end.

Imran Nazir c Harbhajan Singh b Nehra 20 (17m 17b 4x4 0x6) SR: 117.64

Pakistan 29/1   Kamran Akmal 7* (9b 1x4)   A Nehra 2.2-0-7-1

Nehra to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Dragged on! It was pushed across Akmal who went for the forcing shot on the off side but ended up dragging it to his stumps . He didn't pick the length properly this time. The batsman always feels a touch unlucky when he gets out this way but that's that. he was looking pretty solid out there but he is gone now.

Kamran Akmal b Nehra 19 (39m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 86.36

Pakistan 53/2   Younis Khan 12* (14b 2x4)   A Nehra 4.5-0-21-2

Singh to Younis Khan, OUT, That round the stumps angle works for RP. He started it during the tour of England, it helped him then and it has helped him now. It straightened a bit outside off from back of length and Younis nowhere close to the ball, lunged out at it and stabbed it off the outer edge to Dhoni. India have got back into the game really well after that fine start from Akmal and Imran.

Younis Khan c †Dhoni b Singh 20 (50m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.60

Pakistan 65/3   Shoaib Malik 3* (16b)   RP Singh 3.4-0-25-1

Nehra to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, Done in by the slightly slower one. Yousuf moved outside leg and went through with the cut shot too early. He is not too happy with himself but what a fine innings this has been. He was the man who turned things around for Pakistan today. In his last nine ODI innings he had scored 185 - average 20.55, highest 43 .. what a time to turn it all around. Classy knock. Great to watch. Enter Shahid Afridi.

Mohammad Yousuf b Nehra 87 (128m 88b 7x4 0x6) SR: 98.86

Pakistan 271/4   Shoaib Malik 113* (116b 14x4)   A Nehra 9-0-42-3

Pathan to Shahid Afridi, OUT, And he is gone now. He moved outside leg stump and tried to force it to the off side but edged it to Dhoni. Four and out. Afridi has come and gone.

Pakistan 278/5   Shoaib Malik 116* (120b 14x4)   YK Pathan 10-0-56-1

Nehra to Umar Akmal, OUT, Akmal falls first ball. A slower one, full outside off stump, Akmal moves outside leg and has a big swing to the on side and edges it behind.

Harbhajan Singh to Shoaib Malik, OUT, he holes out after a potentially match-winning knock. he charged down the track but lifts it straight to long-on. He was under huge pressure from critics before this game, started slowly but steadily grew in confidence to play several sparkling shot later on. Well played sir.
