    5 Ahmed is gone now after teasing us with some crunchy blows. Unable to get away in the first five balls, he goes for the high-risk option. He took a step down the track and tried to heave it over mid-wicket. But was done in by the extra bounce. The edge takes the ball to covers and who is under it? Raina of course 45/3
    0.5 PK is mobbed by his team-mates. Two bouncers followed by a full one, curving away towards the off stump. No footwork, just a desperate lunge forward at the last minute as he pushed out his bat. Bat meets air, the ball meets the off stump. 2/1
    4.3 Suresh Raina has ran Akmal out with a sharp effort. The crowd roar. It was pushed towards silly mid-off, confusion between the two, both set off, both retreat but Raina is quick. He moves in from covers, picks up the ball, runs a few steps before diving forward to under-arm a direct hit at the non-striker's end. 45/2
    5.1 India are roaring back into the game. It was full, it was outside off and It was Afridi we know. He went for a big slog to the straight boundary but got a thick outside edge. Blur. Dhoni dived to his right to take the sharp chance. 45/4
    15.5 Harbhajan gets his man this time. Again, Younis was looking for the reverse sweep but not only did Harbhajan spot it and slow down the ball further but slipped it down the leg side and put it out of the reach of Younis, who ended up tumbling to the ground in the end. Dhoni does the rest. No third umpire in these warm-up games, as you might know, and teh square-leg umpire says that's out 113/6
    8.2 The arm-ball has worked for Ojha. Malik tried to back away to cut but was rushed into the shot by the delivery that bounced as well. Edge and gone. 63/5
