5.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Cook, no run, leading edge straight away. Tossed up on middle and leg, and the ball straightens as Cook looks to work it square.

5.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Cook, no run, flat and quicker through the air, Cook isn't forward soon enough but keeps it out.

5.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Cook, OUT, Hafeez does it again, with the most golden of arms doing the rounds! Cook is gone. Short of a length outside off, it skids and hurries through Cook without spinning as much he would have expected - typical new ball sort of turn. Cook looks to cut, has no room and gets a thin edge. Adnan Akmal holds on, using the wrists and the thighs to assist him. If you are a left-hand opener, go hide, since Prof. Hafeez is in the house! Cook is mighty frustrated, and bangs the bat on the turf as he walks back.

AN Cook c †Adnan Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 3 (26m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.00
