    1.4 cramps him for room with an angled delivery, but the bowler appeals and he gets the decision in his favour. Sharjeel has gone to review that. The appeal sounded a bit strange to the naked eye as it seemed he had hit it with the bat, but the replays show that it has flicked the front pad before the bat. The batsman was stuck in the crease. The ball hit the pad in line with stumps, but there is a question about height. It is hitting the top of middle and Pakistan have lost their review. Good tight decision by the umpire though. Sharjeel falls early after an impressive innings in the last game. 8/1
    45.1 oh that is the end of Shehzad! He was trying to flick the yorker fine by shuffling across the stumps and he missed it.. It hit the front pad and would have crashed on to off and middle. A good innings by Shehzad comes to an end.. 233/4
    19.6 this time he nudges it past the midwicket fielder and calls for the second! But hello hello, where was the second in that? The fielder was charging from the deep and was on to it in a flash, fires in a good throw at the striker's end and Hafeez is nowhere in the frame. Someone predicted earlier it was going to be a run out and it is..A waste of a wicket 84/2
    28.2 he has holed out at the cow corner! Wonderful running catch by Chandimal! It was a long hop and probably didn't bounce as high as the batsman would have liked to. He was trying to send this into the stands but gets it off the bottom of the bat. It sails high and gives the fielder time to run around from long on and get under it 128/3

    8.3 quicker delivery, he chops it to point and calls for a single, but it was straight to the fielder.. Dilshan, what have you done! KJP had no chance as it went straight to the fielder and all Bilawal hits the stumps direct.. Game over for KJP, for no fault of his. Pakistan have a bonus wicket 49/1
    14.3 this time there is a direct hit from midwicket and Dilshan could be in trouble! He pulled it straight to midwicket and called for a quick one, but this is disaster for Dilshan as his bat just got stuck before the line and then came off his hands.. The ball strikes the stumps moments later, but Dilshan's bat is out of his hands and he is gone.. What luck! It got stuck into the pitch almost on the line.. One inch forward and Dilshan would have been fine.. Second direct hit from Pakistan, great work there by Hafeez, and second wicket.. this time it's a big one 65/2
    31.5 oh that's the big wicket! Clatter of the stumps as Sanga gets a bottom edge on to the stumps. It was quicker delivery and he wanted to slog sweep it, but missed it. Ajmal is ecstatic, so is Pakistan.. 159/3
    33.4 now Junaid strikes to remove the other set batsman! This one was quick from round the wicket, angling in and Chandimal, who was neither forward nor back, was a little late to bring his bat down. He looses his off stump and Pakistan take further control 168/4
    35.4 this one doesn't miss what it's supposed to hit! It was on a length and Thisara got stuck in the crease, much like Chandimal. The ball cut in after pitching and hit the top of off as the batsman tried to play across the line 173/5
    49.1 Afridi roaaaaaaarsssss! who cares if the delivery was a long hop! It's a pressure situation and Angelo fluffs his chance, he slaps it straight to midwicket. Jinxed, some would say.. 281/8
    42.3 Lala strikes! He slowed this down as Kula came out of the crease, misses it completely and Akmal does the rest. Respite from Kula attack. Lala is pumped after that wicket 230/6
    43.3 another one for Junaid! He hits middle and leg this time. It was quick and straight and the batsman had no chance against that. Junaid is in a dangerous mood.. Lala comes and joins him in being angry 237/7
