6.4 and Rahat makes the first breakthrough as Amjad, who was feeling for deliveries outside his off stump, ends up chopping on this back of a length onto the stumps. Rahat exults as he picks up a wicket in his very first over 19/1
    7.3 and Sohail now adds to his wicket tally as he gets Andri to play at this fuller delivery, offering a thick outside edge to the keeper, who completes it with aplomb. UAE now 19 for 2 in the eighth over, and still facing a massive chase 19/2
    9.6 Sohail picks up another as Krishna's eleven-ball vigil comes to a swift end as he offers a straightforward outside edge to Akmal, who is able to complete the catch with an acrobatic dive to his right. Was really struggling to get the ball away as he departs the oval for an ignominious duck 25/3
    29.2 and finally a wicket falls as Khurram Khan ends up flicking straight to Wahab Riaz at backward square, as he looked for some space on the leg side. Khan is livid as he walks away to the pavilion 108/4
    38.1 and the new leading World Cup run-scorer finally departs as he looks to take on long off with a big hit over his head, but doesn't get enough on this to go the distance, with Nasir Jamshed able to get settled under it. Pakistan will be dearly happy to see the back of Shaiman, but they still need five more wickets to wrap this one up in a hurry 140/5
    49.5 where was that all this time? delivers a vicious yorker from round the wicket which is just too good for the batsman as he backed away to try and create space to get under it. Far too late in the contest to really matter though... 210/8
    38.3 and Rohan's stay comes to a premature end as he whacks this next ball, looking to reverse sweep, on the full to backward point, who didn't even have to move an inch as this landed straight in his lap. Rohan Mustafa leaves with a silver duck under his name 140/6
    49.2 and Javed's jolly good time comes to a suitable end as he attempts yet another club over midwicket, with this one finally falling to a Pakistan fielder in the deep as Sohail Khan steadies himself under the catch. Leaves McLean Park with a host of good memories I am sure 208/7
