31.4

Shoaib Malik to Chibhabha, 3 runs, reaches the pitch this time and drives to left of long-off where Tanvir picks up the ball, takes a while before releasing the ball and Malik is angry. He screams at Tanvir to send in the throw quickly. Fair enough skipper!

Shahid Afridi to Chibhabha, OUT, 89.6 kmph quick slider cleans him up. Caught Chibhabha completely by surprise.
