    38 short of a length, quick, Saeed pulling, but getting a top edge, loops high in the air for an easy catch to Flower, not even he could drop that one 194/4
    18.5 coming down the pitch, trying the lofted drive on the off drive, is unfortunate to get the outside edge, ball flies high over cover point, Huckle runs in from deep cover to take an excellent running and diving catch 95/1
    21.2 poked on the on side towards the mid wicket, Anwar went to steps forward then decided "to hell with it", and went back to his crease, Ijaz meanwhile had fully committed to the run, Goodwin underarms it to the keeper 116/2
    36 Inzamam coming down the wicket with a totally inappropriate cut or pull, hard to tell really, misses, Flower muffs the stumping at the 1st attempt, but Inzamam was too lazy to go back to his crease, Flower had time to uproot a stump 183/3
    38.4 pitched up, Wasim with a hopeless swipe across the line, ball was pitched well up, turning into the pads, umpire gives it, Zim aren't out of the game yet, India aren't out of tourney yet 195/5
    43.3 Moin has been sent back, backward point throws the stumps down brilliantly, normal TV is inconclusive, so we go to the pana-eye, shows him to be as short of his ground as you can posisbly get 228/6
