    10 some relief for Sammy and his team. He bowls back of a length, but does so without giving too much room for the batsman to work with. Shehzad brute-forces it down the ground, makes contact off the high part of the bat and pops a catch to long-off 121/2
    3 chops on! Clever change of pace from Hasan and he certainly does enjoy pulling one over Wright. Pitches on a decent length outside off, the batsman thinks he can cut because of the width but hits too hard and plays too early 31/1
    11.2 that's high, and it's taken at deep midwicket. Goes bang against a length ball, but this time, he seems to get it off the bottom of the bat. This is a pressure catch, and it's swirling high in the air as well. Asghar steadies himself under it and does the job beautifully, reverse cup, over his head. Wahab got hit out of the ground a few overs ago, now he's sent the batsman who did that off the pitch 132/3
    16.4 middle stump cracks open. Rossouw's tortured stay ends as he swings across the line of a simple straight ball and misses altogether 164/4
    19 sweetly done. The inside edge doesn't go past the cut strip, but Sarfraz thinks there is a single. Hasan spots the chance for another run-out, races up to the ball, and then races up to the stumps with it to send the Quetta captain back. Saad Nasim, the new man, didn't like it but should he have crossed and sacrificed his wicket? 188/5
    18.5 low full toss outside off, carves it to the left of Afridi at cover. This looks to be two, but Anwar seems to be haring back for the third. This is going to be a run-out and it is with a good throw at the right end. 188/5
    19.5 knocks him over. That's all is necessary. And the fuming fast bowler just turns around and walks back - no celebrations despite making a mess of Nasim's stumps. Pin-point yorker that the batsman slogs all around 199/7

    1.1 first ball, Zulfiqar you beauty! Does little more than put the ball in the right areas. Here that means on a good length and outside off. Kamran, under pressure by the required rate, goes for a slog and gets a top edge to mid-on 1/1
    15.1 oh, that's fantastic deception. This is sooooo slow. It's back of a length, and that triggers the batsman's instinct to pull, an instinct that is never easy to get the best of, which means you often play too early. That's why Mills is such a good bowler - he can repeat this ball when he is in form. Makes the batsman toe-end it right back to him for a simple catch. Malan tries to check his stroke, but he is too late 157/4
    1.5 utter chaos! And it's tied up in a neat little bow as Shehzad, fielding the ball at midwicket, basically jogs up to the keeper's, a smile as wide as any Zulfiqar bowled the other day, and knocks Samuels over. He plays a flick and looks for a run when there was never one there. He'll have to ponder over this dreadful piece of decision making now in the dressing room 3/2
    13.5 caught on the cover boundary. This is good bowling. He sees the batsman charging, and so pushes it through quicker and wider. Hafeez has to reach out while hitting the ball over the top. Toe-ends it and is caught very nicely, Nasim sliding to his right. 142/3
    18.5 this is high, this will need some catching and Nawaz takes a blinder. Change of pace works for Anwar and Quetta. Afridi thinks this is simply a length ball and so swings into the leg side. Ends up mistiming it and the fielder at deep midwicket takes it nervelessly. Would have had his heart thudding somewhere near his throat for at least two minutes - that's how long the ball was in the air 193/6
    16.4 good work. He keeps it full, it's straight, Sohail hits right across the line with a slog sweep. The ball is turning into him, but he chooses the wrong one to try and get under. Yorks himself 174/5

    19.4 caught behind. Great take from Sarfraz. This is a flatter delivery outside off, Jordan tries a cut and feathers an edge through to the Quetta captain to keep up the tension 199/7
    19.5 he's gone! Quetta are cock a hoop! This is a yorker. Wahab flicks and just about saves himself from being bowled. But then looking all around, he can't see the ball, he thinks he's hit it away somewhere and goes for a run. Except the ball is right there, bouncing into Sarfraz's gloves, and he takes off the stumps with glee 199/8
    20 Quetta have won it! Nawaz you absolute beauty! With a wet ball, with massive dew around, with great pressure on him, he bowls the yorker, he trusts himself to bowl the yorker. Hasan digs it out and overbalances. He tries to make his crease again, sees Sarfraz pick up the ball, and then bizarrely tries to run. After that, it was basic for the wicketkeeper to topple the stumps 199/8
