2.5 got him! Lewis has found square leg. This wasn't a great ball. Short and at middle stump. Perhaps kept a tad low and perhaps beat him because of the pace on it. He was back and across the stumps, ready to dispatch this over square leg, but he's got the bottom and it flies at chest height to Hasan Ali who has his fingers pointed up and the ball clutched safely 27/1
    8.1 Shadab has Walton caught at long-on.. Walton looks good and he's powerful, but his game plan was obvious and Shadab is a good spinner. He teases that powerful swing of his, by tossing it up at middle. But this one dips on the batsman and spins away, so Walton can only drag it off the toe of the bat to Malik, who is calmer this time, and safer too. Easy catch. 52/2
    12.2 and now that's three wickets from Hasan's last three balls. That inswing is his weapon and he's used it to good effect once more. Samuels, with the inertia of the sixes he hit last over, has made room again and is poking away from the body. But that's a big gap and enough for Hasan to knock the top of the stumps off a good length 73/5
    10.6 Jason Mohammed will have better days than this. Good bowling from Hasan. Kept bringing it back in against a batsman who was looking to steal singles through the off side. Ultimately, he's tried to open the face and drive through the covers at this full, inswinging delivery that shatters the stumps via the pads 59/3
    12.1 oh dear, what were they thinking? This is full at off stump, he drives it on the up to Hasan's right. He sticks out his hand and stops it. It rolls a few yards away from the pitch on the right and for some inexplicable reason, batsmen around the world keep 'brain fade' alive and kicking. They try to steal a run. Hasan already has the ball as the non-striker is starting the run. He merely has to turn around and underarm that back to remove Simmons 73/4
    14.4 Rumman stands halfway down the pitch, arms folded behind his back without a word. He must have been a good student. This is at a good length at middle stump, Pollard rooted to the crease once more as he pushes away from the body. Breaches his defence and slams into the stumps. Feet, eyes, bat not congruent at all with that and Rumman's trademark celebration tops it all off. 82/6
    not out
    15.2 and that brings this. Pushes it slightly fuller this time. Big man Holder's eyes light up as this is closer to him. Goes at it, tries to hit over midwicket. Gets a top edge that hangs up harmlessly a few yards in front of long-off who makes no mistake 83/7
    18.6 Wahab takes a wicket at the end of a painful spell. If length won't do it, pace will. This is back of a length, angled in at leg stump and smashes it down comprehensively as Narine searches for room to slap it on the up 121/8
