16 November 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Azhar Mahmood to Maher, OUT, It makes no difference now!! That was back of a length on leg and angled in a touch towards middle, Maher makes room and tries to pull it over mid wicket, gets an inside edge onto the leg stump which goes for a walk. One down!

JP Maher b Azhar Mahmood 5 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Hyderabad Heroes 8/1   I Khaleel 2* (2b)   Azhar Mahmood 0.3-0-1-1

Shahid Nazir to Anirudh Singh, OUT, bowled 'im! done in by the pace! That was bowled quick on leg stump, Singh made room and tried to work it away onto the leg-side, between mid wicket and mid on, but could not bring his bat down in time to find his leg stump uprooted! Badshahs strike back!

Anirudh Singh b Shahid Nazir 12 (24m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Hyderabad Heroes 55/2   I Khaleel 34* (19b 5x4 1x6)   Shahid Nazir 1.1-0-11-1

Shahid Nazir to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, gone!! That was full on middle and leg, swinging in, Razzaq stayed in his crease and flicked it uppishly to Inzamam at mid wicket, who made no mistake. He takes a good catch diving forward, to put the Heroes in a spot of bother here.

Abdul Razzaq c Inzamam-ul-Haq b Shahid Nazir 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Hyderabad Heroes 57/3   I Khaleel 35* (20b 5x4 1x6)   Shahid Nazir 1.5-0-13-2

Saqlain Mushtaq to Khaleel, OUT, flighted on middle and leg, pitches on a full length, Khaleel gets under it and swings it away straight to a perfectly positioned Imran Farhat at deep midwicket who takes a comfortable catch. He didn't time that well enough but scored a well-made 45

I Khaleel c Imran Farhat b Saqlain Mushtaq 45 (51m 25b 7x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

Hyderabad Heroes 73/4   AT Rayudu 6* (10b)   Saqlain Mushtaq 0.2-0-1-1

Shahid Nazir to Rayudu, OUT, gone!! the out-swinger does him in! That was pitched on a good length on the off stump, Rayudu gets on the front foot and tries to guide it to third man, the ball moves away at just the last moment to deflect off the outside edge straight to the keeper, Farhat, who takes a good catch diving to his right!

AT Rayudu c †Humayun Farhat b Shahid Nazir 13 (19m 14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 92.85

Hyderabad Heroes 82/5   STR Binny 2* (2b)   Shahid Nazir 3.2-0-27-3

Mohammad Sami to Boje, OUT, what a catch!! that was full on middle and leg, Boje made room to drive it through the off side, gets a thin inside edge and Humayun Farhat, the wicketkeeper, dives low down to his right to pluck the catch inches from the ground. The umpires have a consultation and agree that the ball carried, it certainly did, and the batsman's given out!!

N Boje c †Humayun Farhat b Mohammad Sami 19 (23m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 158.33

Hyderabad Heroes 124/6   STR Binny 25* (17b 1x4 1x6)   Mohammad Sami 2.5-0-25-1

Saqlain Mushtaq to Binny, OUT, flat outside off, pitches short of a good length, not there to hit but Binny who had prepared himself for a big shot went through with his stroke to loft that ball straight to Imran Nazir at long off, who makes no mistake. He didn't get hold of that one

STR Binny c Imran Nazir b Saqlain Mushtaq 25 (34m 18b 1x4 1x6) SR: 138.88

Hyderabad Heroes 126/7   JM Kemp 2* (2b)   Saqlain Mushtaq 3.2-0-33-2
