View dismissal Asad Shafiq st †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asghar 3 5 0 0 60.00
1.1 and straight away he gets a wicket. This is brilliantly bowled. What a delivery to start off things. Draws Shafiq out of the crease and the batsman obliges. Comes a good way down the track but picks the wrong line. The ball drifts away from him and dips on him before spinning away to comprehensively beat him. Kamran Akmal does the rest 3/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Sohaib Maqsood b Mohammad Asghar 0 4 0 0 0.00
1.5 holes out to extra cover. Shehzad gives the spinner the charge and tries to loft him down the ground. But he does not account for the sharp turn, the ball is going a long way away from him which means he fails to get on top of it and skews it off the splice of the blade. Sohaib Maqsood settles under it 4/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Hasan Ali b Mohammad Asghar 41 43 4 0 95.34
15.1 Hasan Ali takes the catch this time, in front of the long-on boundary. Smart catch as he gets down to his front. Pietersen was trying to loft it as the ball slides in with arm but does not middle it. Looks at the toe end of the bat, suggesting the ball went off there 98/4
View dismissal RR Rossouw c Mohammad Asghar b Shakib Al Hasan 38 34 3 2 111.76
13.5 steps out of the crease and slogs again but this time he does not get hold of it entirely. It was wide outside off, meaning he had to drag it from wide of his reach. Gives it a good thump but not good enough to clear the man running across from long-on 90/3
View dismissal Mohammad Nawaz (3) c & b Hasan Ali 18 12 0 1 150.00
18.1 brilliant caught and bowled by Hasan. Length ball, Nawaz was looking to slog it and ends up skying it. Can't get any sort of distance on it. Hasan settles under it nicely. The striker collides into him as he is completing the run and Hasan is trying to get in line of the ball. But that does not deter him as he judges it to perfection and pouches a smart catch. Took a similar one yesterday 121/7
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed*† run out (Shakib Al Hasan/†Kamran Akmal) 8 7 1 0 114.28
17.1 from Wahab Riaz, short and wide, cuts off the backfoot to deep point. Sweeper cover runs across and collects it and they push for the second. Good throw needed and it comes at the keeper's end. Not the best of throws. Kamran does well to gather the ball and throw on to the stumps and he is short of the crease. Credit to the keeper there for collecting a slightly wayward throw 118/5
View dismissal Mahmudullah b Wahab Riaz 0 2 0 0 0.00
17.3 comes down the track and there is extra pace and bounce on that delivery. Gets big on him and he is a long way away from the ball as well so he has to fetch the pull. Cannot find the middle of the bat. Chops it on to the stumps off the bottom part of the blade and Mahmudullah's short stint does not yield any runs 118/6
View dismissal Hasan Khan run out (Hasan Ali/†Kamran Akmal) 5 8 0 0 62.50
19.6 from Wahab Riaz, short ball, drags a pull from outside off to midwicket. They come charging back for the second. Throw fired at the keeper's end by the fielder running across from long-on and Kamran takes his time to throw the ball onto the stumps. Batsman well short 128/9
View dismissal Zulfiqar Babar c Wahab Riaz b Hasan Ali 0 1 0 0 0.00
18.3 down the throat of Wahab at deep square leg. Goes for the slog and skies it again. Cannot clear the long boundary at the square leg region and Wahab takes the catch quite comfortably. Another well-judged catch 122/8
View dismissal Umar Gul c & b Wahab Riaz 2 3 0 0 66.66
19.4 short of a length and tries to pull the ball, Gets a mild top-edge that barely goes up. Wahab runs forward on the follow-through and snaffles it. Seems like Gul isn't feeling too good after copping that blow on the forearm, grimaces as he walks off 126/9

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mahmudullah 7 13 0 0 53.84
6.2 that was kind of a needless shot to attempt after a good start in pursuit of a low total. Comes charging down the track and does not account for the spin at all. Gets beaten as he sticks his bat out in the channel outside off and gets beaten. Keeper does the rest 38/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal lbw b Mohammad Nawaz 26 30 1 1 86.66
8.1 appeal for lbw and given. Kamran gets down to sweep and the ball is not full enough to sweep. It is on a length and he misses the ball, gets hit on the pad. Seems to be hitting in front of middle and leg. Kamran does not seem happy for some reason as he trudges off. Wicket off the first ball for Nawaz. He got a glove on that, actually 51/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c sub (Umar Amin) b Mills 7 4 0 1 175.00
7.4 what a catch! Samuels has another disappointing night. Amin was the substitute fielder, fielding close-in at forward short leg. Samuels tries to fend this short of a length ball off the hips. It is angled in on the body and he tries to flick it away, it hits the splice and seems to be flying over the forward short leg fielder but Yamin jumps up and back in a jiffy. Flew like a spark and takes it single-handed. Electric! 50/2
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mills 22 33 3 0 66.66
15.6 slashes at this short and wide ball outside off and there is some steep bounce on that. Extra bounce accounts for him as the ball finds the edge on its way to the keeper. The noise was clear and Hafeez is off walking even before the finger can be raised 89/7
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan run out (Hasan Khan/Mohammad Nawaz) 1 1 0 0 100.00
8.4 Mohammad Nawaz to Mohammad Hafeez, oh, dear! Peshawar are unravelling here. Mix-up sees the back of Shakib. Hafeez pushes it to cover-point off the front foot. Shakib takes off for the run and Hafeez comes down a few steps before sending Shakib back but he has come down way too far and he has to go back. Too late, but 52/4
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c Asad Shafiq b Mahmudullah 0 2 0 0 0.00
9.2 Maqsood gone and this Peshawar are sliding drastically here. Tries to go inside-out from the crease but fails to get to the pitch of the ball. The ball goes in the air to extra cover where Shafiq jumps up to snaffle a good, sharp catch. That came to him quickly but he did well there 52/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Mohammad Nawaz b Mahmudullah 0 1 0 0 0.00
9.3 and what does he do! Holes out to long-off first ball. Tries to loft the spinner down the ground but he only gets the elevation, not the distance. Probably went off the bottom part of the bat and Nawaz runs to his right from long-off to snaffle it in front of the straight boundary. Irresponsible shot from the captain, and Sammy goes right back from where he came 52/6

View dismissal Wahab Riaz c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mills 1 6 0 0 16.66
18.3 gone, Wahab's gone. And his chancy stay comes to an end. Gets a feather as he slashes at this one from a long away. He is nowhere near this ball outside off as he was staying legside of it. Swings wildly and gets an outside edge for his troubles that his held comfortably by the wicketkeeper 113/8
