    5.2 and the top order stutters again! Gul pitches it up outside off and gets it to move away, Tamim prods forward and half heartedly goes for the drive and only manages a thin outside edge to the keeper 16/3
    4.5 Asif pitches it up slightly wide outside the line of offstump, Junaid leans forward for the square drive but slices it uppishly straight to Butt at backward point 12/1
    4.6 that's two in two! That one pitches on a good length outside the line of offstump and just comes in a little, Aftab shapes to whip that across the line but the ball strtikes him high on the pad, Steve Bucknor thinks about it for a long time and gives it out. Aftab looks a little stunned with the decision and shakes his head as he walks off 12/2
    13.2 great reflexes! Afridi bowls this one on a good length outside off, he tries to cheekily dab it down to third man with the turn but the thick outside edge is snapped up brilliantly by Misbah at slip who follows the direction of the ball early and cups it with both hands while diving to his right 62/5
    6.3 that was a beauty! That's why Asif is such a magician, maan! He pitches it on a good length bang in line of the offstump, Shakib is completely squared up, at first he shapes to whip it across the line, the ball comes on a lot quicker and the ball just shaves the top of offstump 23/4
    33.6 caught! Back of a length delivery and Mahmudullah looking to work it through the onside, gets the top off the bat and the ball lobs up in the air to the onside, Afridi running in from mid-on takes an easy catch. 147/9
    16.2 chopped on, that lands just back of a length on on offstump and comes back in, he appears to try and defend that but is too lazy on the shot and gets a thin inside edge which hits the base of the stumps 71/6
    29.4 bowled! Tosses it up nicely and Dhiman Ghosh misses the ball as he looks to go through the onside, the stumps are knocked back. Deceived by the flight. 128/7
    31.4 bowled! Good ball pitches on a length and Mortaza on the back foot looks to work it, gets the inside edge onto the stumps. Afridi picks up his third wicket. 132/8
    40.5 caught! Short delivery bit closer to Razzak and he opens the face off the bat and plays to Younis Khan at second slip, who takes the catch. 179/10
