    5.4 Oh that is the big wicket! Irfan bowls a quick yorker on off stump and AB, who had moved outside the leg side, gets a faint inside edge and it rattles the stumps. This is it. 53/5
    1.6 caught at mid-on! Completely beaten by the slower ball. It was on off stump and the batsman gets his timing completely wrong as he ends up lobbing it tamely towards mid-on. 20/1
    4.2 caught behind! Would you believe it. It is caught by Kamran Akmal, on the second attempt. It was a length delivery on off stump and the batsman tries to again go over the top, he gets a faint edge and it goes straight to the keeper, who fumbles it once but manages to hold on to it. 50/2
    4.3 caught at third man! it is two in two now. The batsman moves outside the leg stump in an attempt to launch the first ball over the off side, but he gets a big outside edge that flies to third-man fielder. Morris goes first ball 50/3
    4.6 it is number three now, the batsman shuffles across to play a flick to this full delivery on the middle. He misses and it is a straightforward call for the umpire. That was hitting middle. Three in the over 51/4
    6.1 caught at point! The ship is sinking and sinking fast. Gul has four off seven balls. It was a length ball on off. Behaardien flashes at that one and Ahmed Shahzad takes a fine diving catch at point. 53/6
    9.6 what a catch, it is Shahzad again at backward point. Miller tries to cut a delivery which is too close and gets a thick outside edge that flies between short third-man and backward point fielder. Shahzad goes running to his right and plucks the catch from thin air. Great effort. There was Irfan at short third-man and he was not expected to dive for that 67/7
    11.5 caught at short fine leg! Peterson tries to go with a kind of switch hit, but the ball is fired towards his leg stump and he only manages to get a top-edge that lobs towards the left of Afridi at short fine. 98/9
    11.4 caught at deep extra cover! The fun is over. He takes a tiny step down the pitch and tries to send this to long-off but ends up slicing it towards deep extra cover where the fielder takes a simple catch 98/8
    12.2 short ball on the body, the batsman gets a top-edge, the ball lobs up for Kamran Akmal to take an easy catch. Gul gets his five-for 100/10
