    3.2 comes down the track and tries to heave the short-of-length delivery to the leg side but ends up mistiming it awfully to mid-on. A simple dolly of a catch. Done in by the extra bounce 20/2
    1.4 a slightly short of length delivery and Hafeez goes for the pull shot but finds the man at deep backward square-leg! Sammy gets a wicket in his first over 7/1
    6.4 Very fine catch from hyatt! It was a nice leg break, full in length and turning, Shafiq got a leading edge on the attempted defensive push to right of midwicket. The ball lobbed towards short midwicket and Hyatt rushed in and dived fully forward to take a very good catch 49/3
    15.4 Since the previous no ball wasn't a front-foot no ball, this one is not a free hit. Umar Akmal goes for the big pull shot to a short delivery but doesn't clear deep midwicket. Umar hangs around for a while; was he expecting it to be a free hit? anyway, he has to go. A game-breaking blow? 109/7
    6.5 slightly short outside off, pulled away to long-on. hold on Some drama Appeal for hit wicket! They have gone to the third umpire. Well, replays reveal Misbah has dislodged the stumps after he completed the shot. Misbah went right back to play that forcing shot. The back leg went behind the stumps on the leg side. And as he tried to hold his balance after he completed the shot and tried to step forward for the single, his foot dislodged the bails. Misbah keeps finding new ways to get out, doesn't he? 49/4
    10.6 Sammy takes a stinging catch! Afridi moved outside leg and blasted a full-length delivery to extra cover. Sammy leaped to take a good catch. Who will support Umar? 78/5
    13.6 Salman is run out! And Sammy is the man with the direct hit! It was driven to extra cover where Sammy swooped on the ball and fired a direct hit at the non-striker's end. The third umpire first presses the 'not out' button! And Sammy can't believe it. The on-field umpire then gives it out before 'Out" flashes on the big screen! Wicked fun! The bowler slipped and fell after release. And Salman then had to try and run around him, turn to the left to take a detour and that cost him his wicket 93/6
    16.1 Bishooooo! He has taken out the middle stump. Rehman went down the track and tried to heave it over midwicket but made no contact. Clatter! Wicket no 4! 110/8
    18.2 moves outside leg and has a slog. The ball lobs between Sammy at cover and Bishoo at backward point. Sammy thought Bishoo will take it but Bishoo left it for his captain. Sammy adjusted at the end and lunged to his left to take it. And he has a chat with Bishoo before patting him on the back in the end! 123/9
