    1.4 knocks the stumps over! The seam movement does it as Bukhari pitched it on good length just around off, Shahzad drove down the ground but the ball nipped in and found the gap between bat and pad 5/1
    6.5 gone, Nawroz is lbw! Nice flight on the middle stump, Nawroz looks to play across the line and is struck right in front of the stumps 39/3
    3.5 one more for Bukhari! Beautiful offcutter into Stanikzai who was stuck on the back foot to turn the ball to leg, but the ball deceived him and hit him in front of middle and leg just above the knee roll 19/2
    19.2 two in two, great catch at the boundary by van der Merwe! It was on the stumps, Shenwari heaved on the leg side and it was pretty flat. Van der Merwe waited, took a couple of steps and jumped just at the right time to catch it with both hands at deep midwicket 149/6
    15.3 holes out to long-on! It was a fuller delivery on the stumps and Nabi lofted it straight down to long on for an easy catch 96/4
    19.1 slower ball outside off, he goes hard at it and finds a leading edge to send the ball high, bowler gets under it easily 149/5

    2.5 caught at mid-on, Myburgh is gone! He wanted to clear mid-on after the ball pitched on length on the stumps, he didn't get the middle of the bat and it was an easy catch for Stanikzai 17/1
    9.3 oh, that's a horrible mix up! Swart drove the full delivery through the covers towards wide long off and turned back for the second, so did Barresi but he took a couple of steps before saying no. Swart was a long way down by then and an accurate throw makes him go back 70/3
    8.2 easy peasy catch at long off! It was full outside off, Cooper lofted that straight down the ground, no idea why with the field spread out, and long off got under that easily. They check for the no ball and it's fine 66/2
    15.3 that's a bizarre way for a decision! It was a flat delivery down leg, he swept, the keeper appealed confidently for caught behind and the umpire didn't move. Then raised the finger when the appeal died down 108/7
    12.4 good reaction from Ashraf and good stumping too! Borren came outside the crease and Ashraf bowled it flat and wide, Borren swung and missed, Shahzad did the rest 92/4
    13.3 taken in the deep, Netherlands five down with van der Merwe's wicket! He played that slog-sweep against the turn for the length delivery and went down on a knee to find deep midwicket. Easy catch in the end 95/5
    14.5 the keeper takes about four seconds to stump him, and he's gone! Seelaar comes down the track and misses the flat ball that Shahzad collects just over the stumps. Seeler starts walking away from the keeper and he dislodges the ball rather easily 106/6
    19.4 slower ball outside off and it's pulled straight to midwicket for an easy catch 130/10
    16.1 the yorker does it, eight down! Superb and accurate ball in the block hole with the angle from Hassan, the bat comes down late and Bukhari is bowled 109/8
    17.3 poor delivery but what a catch at long-on! Back of the hand slower delivery that was a half-tracker way outside off, van der Gugten pulled it down the ground and Shafiqullah ran in to his left for a great catch diving forward 118/9
