    2.5 taken at midwicket! Sameen has a wicket two overs into his first game at the PSL. Shafiq slogs across the line, has no timing on the shot, it comes off the inside half of the bottom of the bat and even forces Sabbir to dive forward if he wants to get his hands under it. The third umpire does come into play the make sure the catch is clean. The angles are a bit iffy, but there is one close up of Sabbir's hands scooping the ball up before it hits the turf. Should be out. And is 10/1
    9.4 bang goes the off stump! Watson's plan to stay beside the ball and hammer it through the off side fails against a slider which is a bit fuller than he believes it to be. Credit to the bowler Usman for changing his trajectory, but not his length. Miiiiiight have stayed low too 67/3
    8.5 taken at long-on! It's a length ball. It invites the slog. Amin just doesn't have the power to clear the boundary. In the end, it seems to bounce a bit more than the batsman would like, hitting higher on the bat and skewing up instead of long 60/2
    12.1 good length and wide outside off, KP shows no footwork but chases after that delivery. Reaches at it, and tries to drive over cover... but comes off the bat's toe end. Done in by the slower ball, and the skier is taken by Asghar at point. Sharp catch, taken while diving forward 83/4
    16.3 holes out to long on! Tries to go for another biggie, but doesn't have the distance on this occasion. Drags his length short this time and Rossouw's slog comes off the bat's top half. Sabbir the safe fielder in the deep 125/5
    17.3 sends offstump cartwheeling! Wahab Riaz gives his national captain a nice, little send off. Full on off stump and stays slightly low. The batsman misses his slog, and the ball crashes into the wood 130/6
    18.1 Sabbir takes his third! Full on middle stump and Nawaz tries to send this over long on. The bat turns in his hand, as it comes off the toe end. The fielder from Bangladesh is very safe at the long-on boundary 132/7
    19.1 hit-wicket six! It's going to be out, though. Full on middle and leg, and he's slogged this into the cow-corner stands. But his back foot slides back too much, and his heel crashes onto off stump. What a terrific shot, but earns him nothing. Unlucky! 135/8

    16.3 full on leg stump, tries to drive down the ball's line, and it has taken the outside edge. Tamim wants two, but third man - Anwar Ali - is quick to slide and throw the ball back. Tamim's struggling, and he's run out! Sarfraz is quick to take the bails off and the Aleem Dar doesn't even go up to the third umpire. Harakiri running, and this has, once again, brought some life back to this game! 112/4
    3.1 straight up... who's taking it.. it's Chris Green, the substitute. The heave ho from Akmal, looking to smash Watson over his own head. And though he gets all the height he could possibly want, it doesn't even clear the square. Rahat chases it. Green calls for it. Both men are inches away from each other when the catch is complete 23/1
    6.3 the arm ball, and it's through him! It's the slider, pitching on middle and hurtling through the gap between bat and pad. Smith is playing for spin. His bat might as well be in the adjacent pin code. Totally deceived 53/2
    15.2 leading edge, and taken by Hasan! Full on off stump, and he tries to work it towards midwicket. The bat turns in his hand, and the edge is taken by point. Safe hands! 107/3
    18.3 is it going for a six? Nope, holes out! Viv Richards is high-fiving everyone in the dug out. It was a log full toss on middle stump, and he slogs it towards the leg side. Hit well, but not well enough. Taken in the deep. 125/5
