View dismissal JP Maher b Shahid Nazir 56 38 31 11 0 180.64
7.6 beast of a delivery. With the angle making it to come in as Nazir is bowling round the wicket. Maher, is unable to pick the inward drift and yorks himself. When that happens, there is only one result, you hear the death rattle and Maher just does that . What a wicket for the Badshahs 78/1

View dismissal Abdul Razzaq run out (Inzamam-ul-Haq/†Khalid Mahmood) 15 25 14 0 1 107.14
12.3 Mohammad Sami to Rayudu, fuller outside the off stump. Rayudu, comes down the track and drives it to cover where Inzi fields and lets rip a throw back to the keeper, who flicks the bails off. It is referred to the third umpire and replays show Razzaq waswith his bat in the air and off he goes 109/2
View dismissal AT Rayudu c Shahid Yousuf b Naved-ul-Hasan 5 29 11 0 0 45.45
16.3 fuller on the middle stump. Rayudu is coming down the track in an attempt to loft it away but mistimes it and lofts it straight to Shahid Yousuf at long on. Yousuf, slipped there but ensured that he held onto the ball 131/4
View dismissal STR Binny b Mohammad Sami 11 12 10 0 1 110.00
14.5 inswinging yorker coming into the off stump. Binny, looks to defend it and is beaten by the pace on the delivery and is bowled. He is hurling choicest of words at himself on the way back. Don't be so harsh Stuart, it would have got any other batsman too. Such was the delivery 126/3
View dismissal JM Kemp b Azhar Mahmood 6 13 10 0 0 60.00
17.3 shorter and slower on the middle stump. Kemp fails to pick the slower one and swings across the line. Predictably, he is beaten and sees the bails dislodged and the middle stump pegged back by a little 136/5
View dismissal CZ Harris* b Azhar Mahmood 4 18 7 0 0 57.14
19.1 in swinger and slower in pace again. Harris swings across the line and is beaten neck and crop and is bowled lock, stock, and barrel 149/7

View dismissal Imran Nazir lbw b Abdul Razzaq 7 11 10 1 0 70.00
2.1 first blood. Razzaq gets the ball to swing in after pitching it on the off stump. Razzaq is ecstatic as Nazir looks to defend it and is struck on the pad as his feet move nowhere. Nazir decides to ask for a referral and is sent on his way back. It was a straight forward decision. Well then, do we see a fightback 8/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat st †Khaleel b Boje 6 36 12 0 0 50.00
6.5 an arm ball on the off stump. Beats Farhat, who is on the run and Khaleel takes the ball cleanly and whips the bails off. Now they have the Badshahs are in a spot of bother 52/3
View dismissal Naved-ul-Hasan b Abdul Razzaq 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
2.5 Razzaq has his man now as he bowls a good length delivery on the off stump. Rana, picks the length and is playing for the away movement and leaves a huge gap in between bat and pad. The ball maintains the line and pegs back the off stump. Now we have a match on 8/2
View dismissal Shahid Yousuf c †Khaleel b Harris 51 42 27 6 3 188.88
11.4 on the leg stump, Shahid is looking to sweep it away and gets a little deflection back to the keeper and Harris is shocked that it is not given out and immediately asks for a referral and the replays show he gets a little deflection and has to go on his way back. What a way to return back after being struck for two sixes in the over 81/5
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Rayudu b Harris 8 11 11 0 0 72.72
9.4 now they have their man. Harris tosses it up just a little bit and Yousuf, falls for the trap as he comes down the track and lofts it straight down the throat of Rayudu at cow corner 66/4
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* c Absolem b Reddy 10 13 9 1 0 111.11
12.4 on the leg stump, Inzi moves across and sweeps it straight into the hands of Absolem at deep square leg and Badshahs fall deeper into the pit now 87/6
View dismissal Azhar Mahmood c Kemp b Binny 14 12 9 0 1 155.55
14.2 on the off stump and fuller in length. Mahmood does not get under the delivery and lofts it to Justin Kemp, who has to dive forward at long on to take the catch and aren't they ecstatic 100/7
View dismissal Khalid Mahmood c Reddy b Binny 3 10 6 0 0 50.00
14.5 good length outside the off stump. Khalid has a swing at it and gets an outside edge to short third man and IS Reddy takes the catch easily. Badshahs must be having thoughts of the third final now 102/8
View dismissal Mohammad Sami c Kemp b Boje 18 16 10 0 2 180.00
17.4 now ladies and gentlemen doff your hats to Justin Kemp. What a breathtaking catch. Commentators on air say they have never seen a catch like that and I can only nod in affirmative as it was a great catch. Boje bowls a fuller one on the off stump and Sami lofts it to long-off. Kemp runs backwards and across and takes the catch with his palm facing the ground - his hand in a position as if he's trying a backhand flick - and he then gets his right foot across to gain control and falls in front of the ropes. Clean and superb catch that is 132/9

View dismissal Shahid Nazir run out (Harris) 7 17 4 0 1 175.00
19.1 from Absolem, what an anti-climax! fuller on the middle stump and going down leg. Nazir, wants to run across to the other end and Harris throws the stumps down at the strikers end and we will have the third final 150/10
