    28.2 Bowled'im! Typical dismissal for a track keeping low. Short, not too wide, Hafeez looks for the cut, the ball stays low, takes the bottom edge, and Sammy has three now 93/5
    4.3 Edged and taken. Rampaul strikes early. Taufeeq's comeback is cut short. This is back of a length, seems to be angling across him, but jags back a bit, thus taking the inside edge of the hanging bat. Faint edge 16/1
    14.5 Shehzad's misery ends! Sammy bowls a bouncer after calling the keeper up! Shehzad looks for the pull, goes hard at it, manages a massive bottom edge onto the stumps. Captain's first wicket of the series 48/2
    21.1 Bishoo strikes in front of his home crowd! Well done solja! Usman doesn't seem too thrilled with the decision. And he has reason to feel disappointed. This is an ordinary ordinary decision. Pitched outside leg! Usman misses the sweep, is hit in front. It's common sense: if a big legbreak is hitting the stumps, it can't have pitched in line. Doesn't apply to Asoka, though 67/3
    22.4 Sammy strikes! Misbah had no clue about this slower offcutter, and Misbah is caught deep in the crease. The inward movement beat the bat, and hit him on the back pad, above the knee roll. The only question here is the height. On replay I notice the knee was bent significantly, creating an impression that he might have been hit high. Dead plumb 72/4
    30.6 If slow be the pace, if low be the bounce, play on. Third played-on dismissal! Akmal is looking for that dab towards third man, but this is slightly fuller than the ideal length, and takes the toe of the bat and onto the stumps 108/6
    32.1 What a brute! And they know this is the big one, one who could take this game away. This delivery, though, would have taken the best of them out. Kicks off just back of a length, bounces chest high, and takes the glove as Afridi looks to run it down to third man 113/7

    32.4 Rampaul is on fire, length ball, outside off, Riaz pokes at it away from the body, and edges it straight to slip. Well done to the captain and the bowler for having a slip there 113/8
    38.4 Slight seam movement, good enough to beat the tailender, and he is caught dead in front. He planted the front foot across, and looked to play around it, but the slight movement was enough to beat him 127/9
    41.2 That looked adjacent. Full and straight delivery, and Junaid falls over while playing across the line. Hit in front of leg, clipping leg stump. His movement across the line made it loo worse than it was 139/10
