Played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (neutral venue)
26 October 2010 - night match (20-over match)

M Morkel to Umar Gul, no run, Good stuff from Morne, gets disconcerting bounce from just back of a length and a nagging line, which forces Gul into a defensive fend.


M Morkel to Umar Gul, no run, Gul had no clue what to do with that bouncer. Should he go for an out of position pull? Should he take it on the body? Should he flick and hope he middles it? He went for option three, but ended getting a top edge that popped up and landed a second later, next to him. Could have gone anywhere


M Morkel to Umar Gul, no run, Clueless is Gul. Another short ball, whizzes a foot away from his body outside off as he makes up his mind on how to play it. By the time he had, the ball was in AB de Villiers' gloves

Pakistan 91/7   Umar Gul 0* (3b)

Tsotsobe to Umar Gul, no run, extra pace from Morne, lack of pace from Tsotsobe - both are tormenting Gul equally. Pushes out uncertainly and gets as inside edge as it comes on slowly. Dribbles out to mid on


Tsotsobe to Umar Gul, OUT, well, that was an agonising stay for Gul and the good part for him is that it has come to an end. Back of a length and angling across him, he chose the pull - can't blame him, he had tried several other shots without success in that short stay - but sadly, he was very late on it. Top edge balloons up and lands in Smith's bucket hands on the square leg boundary

Umar Gul c Smith b Tsotsobe 0 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 92/8   Umar Gul 0 (5b)
