T Taibu c & b Shoaib Malik 51 (101m 76b 4x4 0x6) SR: 67.10

Shoaib Malik to Chibhabha, no run, almost done in the flight. He came down the track, the ball dipped and spun in and almost went through bat and pad gap but a inside-edge saved him

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!

42.5

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, 1 run, flighted and is swept to deep square leg for a single. Again Sarfraz shouts what he thinks should be the amount of runs for that shot. "One!"

49.1

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, FOUR, slow through the air, down the leg side and is swept fine to the boundary

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, SIX, Now the big hit down the ground. He charged down the track, got under the ball nicely and swung it over long-on.

49.3

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, 2 runs, Where does this one go? It has been slog-swept to wide midwicket region
