Malinga to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, wow, how incredible is this! Malinga after putting down the simplest of catches now pulls off a superb bit of fielding to break the big stand, Hafeez pushed this one to the right of Malinga, who moved across from his follow-through to collect the ball, he spotted that Shehzad is out of his crease, Shehzad was scrambling back but the throw from Malinga crashes into off stump, Shehzad is so short of the crease that the third umpire is not required, Shehzad wasn't helped by the fact that his bat got stuck in the turf as he tried drag his bat towards the crease

Ahmed Shehzad run out 81 (122m 89b 6x4 2x6) SR: 91.01

Pakistan 162/2   Mohammad Hafeez 66* (84b 4x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 4.5-0-14-0

NLTC Perera to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Misbah is gone! a great hand but it comes to the end with a tame shot, another poor ball from Perera, a hit-me full toss, a touch slower from Perera, Misbah could have slammed it where he wanted over the leg side, he can't connect properly and gives a catch to deep midwicket
