View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Sohail Tanvir/†Kamran Akmal) 43 56 41 2 1 104.87
12.4 from Shahid Afridi, Gambhir is hitting it really hard now, but he might be in trouble this time, slogs it in front of square leg, the throw comes in, Gambhir comes back for the second, but his dive cannot beat the throw, Kamran Akmal does the remainder of the job 90/2
View dismissal AM Rahane c Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 42 43 31 5 1 135.48
10.5 63.3 mph, Rahane is gone, got a little too predictable, targetted extra cover again, lofted the full delivery cleanly, but there was a man in the deep there, straight to him 77/1
View dismissal V Kohli c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 9 15 11 1 0 81.81
14.3 81.8 mph, appeal for caught behind, and he is given, Kohli falls to his third successive wild swing, given for an underedge through to the keeper off the short of a length ball 103/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Umar Akmal b Umar Gul 10 21 9 0 1 111.11
16.2 shortish, and the sound of bat hitting ball gives it away, Yuvraj hasn't timed the pull at all, it sails tamely to deep midwicket, Gul raises his arms, it was the slow offcutter 115/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Saeed Ajmal 1 7 2 0 0 50.00
15.1 and MS Dhoni is gone now, tame dismissal, he was on the back foot, trying to play his flailing punch through extra cover, plays outside the line, and the ball spins in a bit to graze the off stump enough to disturb a bail 108/4
View dismissal SK Raina b Saeed Ajmal 10 11 9 1 0 111.11
17.3 gone, Ajmal strikes again, short of a length delivery makes Raina have a wild heave, he misses as the ball skids in, stays a touch low, and uproots leg stump, Ajmal punches the air, what a star 122/6
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (Shoaib Malik) 2 8 2 0 0 100.00
17.4 Saeed Ajmal to Jadeja, wow, now Rohit is run out by several feet, no way there was a second run there, it was nudged towards midwicket, and to Rohit's dismay, there was a direct hit as well 123/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 2 4 4 0 0 50.00

View dismissal I Sharma b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
18.2 and he is cleaned up by the Guldozer's yorker, this is like the Pakistan of old, and also, like the India of old, yorker on target, Ishant's bat comes down in another time zone, and in real time, the leg stump is flattened 124/9
