    0.5 that's an ugly heave as he comes down the pitch and swings across the line of a length ball. Not the smartest piece of batting 5/1
    2.2 given! He went a long way across the stumps, aiming to flick to the leg side, he misses and was struck around middle and leg on first glance 11/3
    0.6 would you believe it?! Another run out. Well, of course you would believe it. Willey managed to get the ball straighter, it was nicely driven through. Hafeez wanted the second run but Rafatullah wasn't convinced and it's another shambles. And, again, they have to work out who is run out. Comical scenes. Has Hafeez crossed with Rafatullah and the opposite to end to where the stumps were broken? Still waiting (grab a drink, folks). And it's Hafeez that has to go. 9/2
    19.5 he's found long on! This game isn't over yet. He opts for the glory shot, trying to clear the boundary, but he can't get the leverage and it's a simple catch 153/7
    8.1 lovely catch! Sharp snaffle off his own bowling. The batsman isn't walking off. Wants to see if it has carried. Aiming to work a full delivery into the leg side, gets a leading edge low back to Rashid to his left. The umpires have gone upstairs, the soft signal is out. Rashid goes one handed, does he get the finger underneath it? The more replays we see, in slow-mo, the more the doubt grows. Batsman might survive here. The angle from behind shows the fingers under the ball. Instinct is out, but you never know. No we have it zoomed in. Not sure that helps or adds more doubt. And he's been given! Cricket instinct says that was clean. 50/4
    11.1 another fantastic catch! Jordan at deep midwicket this time, running to his left. Akmal went for the slog sweep to a ball outside off, it was a skimming shot and Jordan gathered it superbly 65/5
    17.3 taken leg stump! Silence (relatively speaking) from the crowd. Afridi going to sweep a delivery which was not that full, he had moved a long away across, he missed and leg stump as clipped. Was a touch slower, too, at 71mph 128/6
