    98.2 Tamim has been stumped. They go to the TV umpire and he confirms it. Hafeez pats Tamim on the back. Misbah, Wahab are among the Pakistan players to congratulate Tamim. This was nicely looped up by Hafeez, he advances down the track, gets beaten in flight, this ball turns away. Beaten by spin as well. He turned back but did not drag his bat in. Tamim's bat was in the air by the time Sarfraz had whipped the bails off. So, one double-centurion takes out the other.... 399/3
    75.4 finally, finally, Pakistan find a way past this mammoth opening stand. Kayes holes out. Babar has a smile on his face, more out of relief rather than joy. Tossed up, Kayes charges down the track and mistimes the lofted stroke. Long-off runs across to his left and takes the sliced hit comfortably 312/1
    88.3 Junaid strikes! Pitched up and swings in, Mominul pushes without much footwork. The ball zips in, sneaks through the gate to rattle middle and off. The bowler exults 345/2
    115.5 Mahmudullah has been give out lbw by umpire Martinesz. He goes for a referral straightaway. Fuller and on off, he takes a step forward and does not connect with the flick. Struck on the front pad below the knee-roll. No inside snick. Impact in line and that would have cannoned into off. The on-field call stays and Mahmuduulah has to depart 463/4
    not out
    116.5 and another lbw. Mushfiq has shouldered arms and is given out by umpire Llong. He has a chat with Shakib but does not review the call. Hafeez is pleased. Pushed fuller on middle and spins in, Mushfiq shoulders arms and takes it on the thigh. It would have clipped the leg stump 464/5
    130.2 short, drifting outside leg, Soumya transfers his weight on the back foot and looks to pull. Hafeez runs in from deep midwicket, dives forward and snaps up a smart catch. Maiden wicket for Shafiq in Tests 524/6
