View dismissal Kamran Akmal c †Dhoni b IK Pathan 15 38 26 3 0 57.69
9.3 He is gone now. Again, he walked across the stumps, Irfan alert this time hurled it full and outside off and Akmal edged a drive low to the right of Dhoni who makes no mistake. Something had to give as the runs weren't coming thick and fast. 34/1

View dismissal G Gambhir c sub (Nasir Jamshed) b Umar Gul 40 62 33 4 1 121.21
12.2 He's gone! that's the wicket Pakistan wanted, banged in short, just a bit of width, Gambhir upper cuts it powerfully but is held at backward point by Nasir Jamshed, just a few yards in from the boundary 79/3
View dismissal V Sehwag c Shoaib Malik b Sohail Tanvir 2 7 8 0 0 25.00
1.5 Sohail Tanvir takes out Sehwag. Fullish, on the off and middle stump line, Sehwag shapes to drive through the on side, the bat face shuts early and the ball lobs off the leading edge to mid-off. Pakistan are over the moon. All fielders converge to celebrate the big wicket. 8/1
View dismissal RG Sharma c sub (Nasir Jamshed) b Umar Gul 24 43 27 5 0 88.88
10.3 pitched it short, Rohit tries a short-arm jab, takes the top edge and it flies straight into the hands of Nasir Jamshed at deep-backward square leg 67/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Younis Khan b Iftikhar Anjum 25 39 25 4 0 100.00
17.3 Gone! he's holed out to midwicket, not the greatest of deliveries, back of a length on off stump, he could have smashed that anywhere, instead he hits it to Younis Khan 106/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 56 83 59 5 1 94.91
31.5 And finally Afridi gets a favorable nod from umpire Nadir Shah. It was the slider that skidded across Yuvraj after landing on back of length on the off and middle line, Yuvraj shaped to pull and got a thin bottom edge through to Akmal. Yuvraj too was lucky to survive couple of close lbw decisions. 187/6
View dismissal SK Raina c Shahid Afridi b Fawad Alam 24 43 32 2 0 75.00
28.6 done in by a full toss outside leg! Raina, who was lucky to survive a close lbw decision earlier, top edged his sweep to deep square leg where Afridi ran in to take a lunging catch. 179/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c sub (Nasir Jamshed) b Shahid Afridi 64 95 59 3 2 108.47
48.2 another swing and this time he holes out to sweeper cover. Game over. Pakistan win the series. Malik rushes across and jumps at Afridi. They all converge. Now both teams shake hands with each other. Super win for Pakistan. They rebounded well after a big loss in the earlier game to win when it mattered. The Kitply cup is in the bag. 290/10
View dismissal IK Pathan c Shoaib Malik b Iftikhar Anjum 28 52 35 1 1 80.00
43.1 Another wicket goes down. Irfan pulls a short-of-length delivery to midwicket. No power or timing there and it just lobbed to the fielder. 247/7
View dismissal P Kumar lbw b Umar Gul 5 12 8 0 0 62.50
45.4 trapped in front. He thrust his front foot across and tried to paddle a low full toss on the leg stump line. It would have hit the leg stump. 262/8
View dismissal PP Chawla b Umar Gul 2 12 5 0 0 40.00
47.5 cleaned him up with a yorker. Gul has been bowling superbly at the death and continues to be reward for his accurate length. The bat couldn't come down in time and the death rattle for Chawla would have been delightful to Gul's ears. Nasim Ashraf is up on his feet, celebrating the wicket. 284/9
