    6.6 make it two in two! Sami is on a hat-trick. Masakadza played a loose push on this back of length delivery and it was the extra pace that did the trick again. It catches the inside edge and ricochets on to the stumps. The umpires want to check for the no-ball - this was just as close as the last delivery - but he is fine. 58/2
    6.5 it's all over! Sami gets his first international wicket in ages. Sibanda looks to pull a short delivery from outside off but gets beaten by the extra pace. That got big on the batsman and he ends up top-edging it behind the stumps. Sarfraz runs towards the edge of the circle and takes a good catch over his shoulder 58/1
    8.2 there goes the third one! Coventry is not happy but Pakistan are ecstatic. That was a nasty short ball, a bit down the leg side, but it caught Coventry in an awkward position, trying to evade it while hanging his bat. Sarfraz takes it asks the question immediately. Wahab is celebrating too. Can't be sure if there was anything on that: it's so loud. The replays show it missed the bat and just flicked the shoulder. A bit unfortunate for the batsman there 73/3
    19.2 the angle does the job! It's full and fast, Chigumbura looks to hit across the line and misses. The middle stump takes a beating 168/6
    12.4 Malik strikes! Williams looks to sweep this tossed up delivery but gets a thick top edge that lobs up for Wahab at short-fine leg. Easy catch there. 100/4
    16.6 misses the yorker, it's a low full-toss but Raza slaps it straight to long-on. He was looking good there, but Raza has to go 142/5

    14.4 he has holed out at long on! Mukhtar was looking for another six and gets a decent connection, but this is hit straight to the man. Superb innings from the batsman, in only his second T20I 144/2
    13.3 what a soft dismissal! Shehzad gives himself room, the bowler pushes it wide outside off and as he reaches out for it, he can only cut it straight to point. End of a good innings from Shehzad. So the opening stand ends at 142, joint equal with Kamran Akmal and Salman Butt's 142/1
    16.5 and the lecture is over! Hafeez looks to play the late cut but the extra bounce means he can only edge it to the gloves of Coventry. Will Pakistan get to cheer for Lala? 157/3
    19.2 he has got him! What a yorker is that! Malik's laboured innings comes to an end. He swings across the line but this one is too good, squeezes under the bat and hits the middle stump. What a time to bowl that delivery! Well done Panyangara 169/5
    17.5 Zimbabwe are loving this! Umar Akmal closes the face of his bat a bit too early and sends the leading edge straight to cover. This are gifts being given to Zimbabwe and they are lapping them all up 162/4
