    12.2 Out this time! It was a good length delivery outside off and Ouma goes for a strange shot. He got on the front foot and went for a cut. Not the length for it. Unless you have a Shane Watson like chop-cut off the front foot. Edge and gone here! 43/2
    9.1 Waters is run out. Fine work from Umar Akmal. It was pushed towards short mid-on region. Waters set off but so did Umar Akmal from midwicket. He rushed across, swooped on the ball and flicked a direct hit at the non-striker's end 37/1
    32.1 Wicket no 5 for the captain! Obuya's entertaining knock is over. Afridi teased him with a flighted delivery and he couldn't resist going for the big hit but he couldn't clear long-on. 5 for 16! ooh la la! 112/8
    22.2 Tikolo fails again. He went down the track, first side stepped towards leg before trying to move across towards the line and went for the lofted hit. But Afridi had held this one back and Tikolo was through early with the shot. The ball slid through the bat and pad gap and fell on the stumps. Afridi's index finger shoots up towards the sky. The Kenyan legend walks back to the hut. 73/3
    26.3 Pakistan go for the UDRS Lbw turned down. It landed on a length on the off stump and skidded towards the leg stump. The batsman went back, played across the line and missed the slider. It would have hit the leg stump. The reversed verdict is OUT! 79/4
    27.5 Goes for the sweep but this time he top edges it to backward square-leg where Umar takes it with a smile. Five down and tottering. Oops, It was Obuya who played the cracking sweep shot earlier in the over. Patel tried to reprise it but he got a fatal top edge 85/5
    28.3 Afridi is on a song here. It landed on a good length around the middle stump line and straightened. The batsman missed it and it would have hit the middle stump. The captain walks back. He had a chat with his partner whether to go for the UDRS and they decide going against it. 87/6
    30.5 Googly! Wicket no 4. It broke back in from outside off, skidded past the forward prod and hit the pad in front of the off stump. Afridi - 4 for 16 101/7
    32.5 And then they were one. This one rolled off the pad to the on side. Confusion. Chaos. The striker rushed down the track but his partner wasn't going anywhere. There is a direct hit at the striker's end - shouldn't he have lobbed it safely to hands of a fielder close to the stumps? - and there is no batsman in sight near that end. Gone. Terrible. 112/9
    33.1 Oh dear! He shouldered arms there, only to hear the death rattle. It landed on a length just outside off and skidded in. The batsman left it alone. Mistake. Clatter! 112/10
