View dismissal I Khaleel lbw b Naved-ul-Hasan 25 26 15 5 0 166.66
5.5 Rana has his man now. Bowls a fuller delivery on the middle stump and it looked to be coming in. Khaleel, as has been his wont looks to flick it away but does not get his bat down in time as the ball thuds onto pads. Although at the first look it seemed to be going down leg, replays suggest it would have held it's line and off goes Khaleel 49/1

19.6 short outside the off stump, Razzaq is looking to pull it away and gets a top edge to long on, where Imran Nazir takes the catch. Rana has some choicest of words to hurl at Razzaq, who is visibly unhappy and has a word with Inzi 170/5
