We liked that one2.30Shoaib Akhtar to Joyce, no run, slower ball, full bunger, and that's just mistimed to cover with a drive2.40Shoaib Akhtar to Joyce, no run, good leave in the end, it just nipped back a little bit at Joyce and he jerked his body away in time2.54Shoaib Akhtar to Joyce, FOUR, not quite timed as well as the first four, but with the ball coming at him at 90mph even that cover drive ran away to the boundary2.60Shoaib Akhtar to Joyce, no run, coming round the wicket this time, that's quicker and Joyce rushes a drive at that one and will be glad, in the end, he missed it - that could so easily have been an edgeEND OF OVER:3 | 9 Runs | ENG: 9/0 (227 runs required from 47 overs, RR: 3.00, RRR: 4.82) EC Joyce8 (11b)AJ Strauss1 (7b)Shoaib Akhtar2-1-9-0Mohammad Asif1-1-0-03.10Mohammad Asif to Strauss, no run, left alone3.24Mohammad Asif to Strauss, FOUR, strayed down leg and that's easily worked off the hips by Strauss for a lovely ball3.30Mohammad Asif to Strauss, no run, pitched on a good length in front of middle and that's quickly defended by the batsman, rushing his hands down on that one to jab it low3.40Mohammad Asif to Strauss, no run, screecher of a good delivery; Strauss tried to withdraw the bat but after the ball had rushed past him and squared him up. Asif nods his head at the batsman as if to say "Well bowled, me"3.50Mohammad Asif to Strauss, no run, oooh, great decision to call for the third umpire there. Strauss stands his ground after edging to first slip and doesn't think the ball has carried.
