View dismissal JP Maher b Azhar Mahmood 5 7 7 1 0 71.42
1.3 It makes no difference now!! That was back of a length on leg and angled in a touch towards middle, Maher makes room and tries to pull it over mid wicket, gets an inside edge onto the leg stump which goes for a walk. One down! 8/1
View dismissal I Khaleel c Imran Farhat b Saqlain Mushtaq 45 51 25 7 1 180.00
9.2 flighted on middle and leg, pitches on a full length, Khaleel gets under it and swings it away straight to a perfectly positioned Imran Farhat at deep midwicket who takes a comfortable catch. He didn't time that well enough but scored a well-made 45 73/4
View dismissal Anirudh Singh b Shahid Nazir 12 24 12 1 0 100.00
6.1 bowled 'im! done in by the pace! That was bowled quick on leg stump, Singh made room and tried to work it away onto the leg-side, between mid wicket and mid on, but could not bring his bat down in time to find his leg stump uprooted! Badshahs strike back! 55/2
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Inzamam-ul-Haq b Shahid Nazir 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
6.5 gone!! That was full on middle and leg, swinging in, Razzaq stayed in his crease and flicked it uppishly to Inzamam at mid wicket, who made no mistake. He takes a good catch diving forward, to put the Heroes in a spot of bother here. 57/3
View dismissal AT Rayudu c †Humayun Farhat b Shahid Nazir 13 19 14 0 1 92.85
10.2 gone!! the out-swinger does him in! That was pitched on a good length on the off stump, Rayudu gets on the front foot and tries to guide it to third man, the ball moves away at just the last moment to deflect off the outside edge straight to the keeper, Farhat, who takes a good catch diving to his right! 82/5
View dismissal STR Binny c Imran Nazir b Saqlain Mushtaq 25 34 18 1 1 138.88
15.2 flat outside off, pitches short of a good length, not there to hit but Binny who had prepared himself for a big shot went through with his stroke to loft that ball straight to Imran Nazir at long off, who makes no mistake. He didn't get hold of that one 126/7
View dismissal N Boje c †Humayun Farhat b Mohammad Sami 19 23 12 1 1 158.33
14.5 what a catch!! that was full on middle and leg, Boje made room to drive it through the off side, gets a thin inside edge and Humayun Farhat, the wicketkeeper, dives low down to his right to pluck the catch inches from the ground. The umpires have a consultation and agree that the ball carried, it certainly did, and the batsman's given out!! 124/6

8.4 gone!! good length on leg stump, Farhat shuffles and flicks that uppishly straight to Nicky Boje at short-fine leg, who takes a good catch. Farhat departs for 28, but he played the ideal foil to Nazir, adding a potentially match-winning 108 for the first wicket 108/1
View dismissal Shahid Yousuf lbw b Boje 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
9.1 tossed up on middle and off, pitched on a good length, S Yousuf comes forward to defend, is struck on the pads, that straighted and was struck in line with the stumps. The bowler appeals but it is turned down. Boje is not convinced, calls for a referral, and replays show the batsman was struck in line of middle and leg, and height was not a problem. Two down! 109/2
