22.4 Tamim has nicked off! This was on a length and angling away outside off, Tamim chases it and flashes with his feet glued to the crease. He only manages an outside edge that is snapped up by Sarfraz behind the wicket. Imran is pumped, he roars and gives the batsman a send off... Tamim has thrown it away. He would have been better off had he let that pass 86/2
    11.1 that's a rippaah! Tossed up and spins in viciously from outside off. Kayes wants to drive it through the covers but is befuddled by the turn. The ball bursts through the bat-pad gap to hit middle 48/1
    41.2 sharp, low catch at cover. Mominul departs for 68. This was tossed up and full outside off, he advances and drives. Asad Shafiq dives to his right and pouches it. Bangladesh hurtling to defeat in Mirpur 143/7
    26.2 The second grab does it for Younis. Wahab softened up Mahmudullah, Imran makes the incision. This was on a back of a length and outside off, he is caught on a fishing expedition, pushing away from the body. The outside edge is grazed, Younis bobbled it up on the first attempt before catching it on the second, around chest height at second slip 95/3
    34.3 Hafeez strikes in his first over! He gives this more air and invites Shakib to go for a big shot. The batsman obliges, makes a trip down the track and seeks to loft it. However, he can only slice it into the hands of Wahab, who pedals back from mid-off 121/4
    37.3 Mushfiq has played on! The crowd hushed into silence. This was on a length and turns away, Mushfiq seeks to defend away from the body and drags it to the off stump off an inner edge. The off bail is tipped off. 126/5
    40.5 Soumya has been caught down the leg side. Umpire Llong's forefinger goes up. This was a harmless shortish ball directed down leg, Soumya wants to help it away fine on the leg side. But the ball brushes the glove and Sarfraz completes a good catch, diving to his right 139/6
    56.5 Pakistan take the series 1-0 with a massive win! Shahadat will not come out to bat again. Timber. Junaid hurls in a yorker at 139.4ks, Hom backs away, looks to slash it away but can't do so. This slides under the bat and rattles the middle stump 221/10
    49.2 Yasir pumps his fist. This was floated outside off with some extra bounce. Tajul sinks to one knee and top-edges the attempted sweep. Sami Aslam runs across to his right from short fine leg and snaffles it, tumbling onto the ground 177/8
