    20.3 picks up the wrong shot. It was a flighted delivery on the off and middle, Jamshed chooses to play a premeditated sweep and is struck on the front pad. Ashwin lets out a cry of excitement immediately and the decision is given. That is a huge wicket considering how Jamshed has played this series 61/3
    2.1 and he strikes with that one that comes booming in from outside off. We have seen it already a few times in this series, Akmal gets stuck on the crease and he is right in front of the stumps. Bhuvneshwar continues to impress with his swing 3/1
    6.5 the middle stump has been flattened! Not a big inswinger, but enough on that to take the inside edge as Younis comes forward to play a loose drive towards cover. And just like that, Pakistan are two down 14/2
    34.1 and that leg slip finally comes into the picture. Ashwin has been bowling from round the wicket all day. This one pitches on the leg stump and Misbah glides it straight into the hands of Rahane at that position. Some joy for the India team finally 113/4
    39.2 he charges out and is stumped by a mile! He gave away the trick too early and Jadeja altered his length by dropping it short. Realising that he was no where near the pitch of the delivery, he tried to defend it, but the ball squeezed through the gap between the bat and pad and Dhoni completed the stumping in a flash 125/6
    36.3 cuts in sharply after pitching on length and hits the pad first, then the bat, as Shoaib Malik tried to defend that off the front foot. He didn't really take a good forward stride on that one, and was beaten by the movement off the pitch. Replays show that the impact was marginally outside the line of off stump, but that looked close the moment he was struck. Slightly unlucky Shoaib 119/5
    48.5 caught at midwicket! Hafeez has hit this length ball straight to Yuvraj at midwicket. It wasn't a free-hit as the last ball was no-ball for height. But Pakistan have imploded big time here. Yuvraj runs around the outfield, slides on the field, he gets surrounded by his teammates. 157/10
    46.2 caught at long on! Umar Gul cracks under pressure. The shot was on as it was a length ball on off stump, Gul took a swing at that one but wasn't able to time it very well, the ball settles into the hands of Jadeja at long-on. 144/7
    47.2 and this time he manages to get an edge. It was a similar delivery outside off as the last one, Ajmal tried to run it down to third-man with a horizontal bat and ended up playing at the ball away from his body. The ball takes an edge and it's an easy catch for Dhoni. First wicket for Shami Ahmed in ODIs, 200th catch for Dhoni 145/8
    47.3 he is just run himself out! Although Raina's stop at cover had a fair bit to do with that. Junaid tapped it to the off side and took off immediately, Raina dived and made a half stop. Luckily for him, the ball didn't go to far. He took the ball, realised that there was complete communication breakdown between the batsmen with both on one end, aims and takes down the stumps at striker's end direct. Dhoni was there too had he missed. 145/9
