    7.6 confusion.... full on middle, Butt nudges to square leg and takes off for a run, there was certainly a run in it but Jamshed wasn't interested, Butt has no time to turn back the fielder at square leg flings it to Taibu who fumbles, there was ample time for him to whip off the bails with Butt stranded in the other end 45/1
    14.4 cheap dismissal, Chibhabha bowls another slower one, the legcutter, the ball lands on a good length, Jamshed stays rooted to the crease, tries to loft over the bowler's head, he mistimes it and Matsikenyeri at long-off runs across to his right and takes it easily 85/2
    31.1 good judgment by Masakadza in the deep, Price bowls from over the wicket, flights it on leg, Younis goes for a premeditated slog sweep, the ball flies off the middle of the bat and Masakadza does well to time his dive forward at long leg and take it comfortably 198/3
    37.4 a third prospective ton doesn't see the light of day, flighted on off and middle, he steps down and tries to loft over long-off, he doesn't get the desired elevation as Mpofu runs to his right and takes it with ease 239/4
    48.6 Malik stays at the crease and goes for the loft over long-on, he fails to connect off the meat of the bat and ends up hitting down Masakadza;s throat at long-on 338/5

    17.4 the change of attack to round the wicket works..... slight change of pace, lands on a good length on middle and leg, Sibanda tries to chip it over mid-on but is too early on the stroke, Younis Khan pedals backwards and takes it just outside the 30 yard circle 103/2
    8.3 brilliant reflexes! pitches on a good length bang on off stump, the ball holds its line, Masakadza pokes at it, gets a thick outside edge which flies low to Kamran Akmal who plucks it one-handed diving to his right 47/1
    32.2 played on.... flights it on off stump, the ball goes through straight after pitching and cramps him for room, Chibhabha goes for the cut but gets a thick inside edge. The off stump is flattened 159/5
    22.5 the googly.... pitches just outside off and comes back in, Taibu gets a half prod forward and meets the ball on the lower half of his pad in line of middle stump, Afridi appeals confidently and umpire de Silva is convinced 130/3
    25.5 excellent work again by Akmal....flighted outside the off stump, Taylor is beaten as he steps forward to defend, Aklam gathers the ball and quickly whips off the bails seeing Taylor's back foot in the air, the third umpire has a look at it. Taylor doesn't get his foot down on time 141/4

    35.1 flighted on middle and leg, Matsikenyeri gets down on his knee and tries to sweep, he's a little too late on the stroke as the ball hits him low on the front pad in line with leg stump. Malik thinks he's got him and umpire de Silva agrees 166/6
    41.5 tossed up much slower through the air, Chigumbura steps down, tries to go downtown, fails to get to the pitch of the ball, the ball is skied for ages and finally lands down Jamshed's throat who runs forward from long-on 195/7
