    11.1 down the throat of long-on and Leask is thrilled. No hundred for Shahzad, but he's done a lion's share of the work so far. Makes his way down the track, as he has been doing against spin, and goes for a heave. Wants to clear long-on, doesn't 112/2
    0.4 caught in front! Spin works. Just enough spin as he tosses the ball up on off stump from around the wicket, as he has been bowling so far, and gets the ball to duck back in. The batsman was going for a sweep, but hadn't got the front leg outside the line 2/1
    11.3 that's top work from Coetzer at short fine leg! Ran in quickly, fired a hard, flat throw to the batsman's end. Scotland are cock-a-hoop. Goes for a sweep does the new batsman Shenwari, and Stanikzai decides on a quick single. Nervous moments for both teams because the replays are so very close. It appears Scotland will be getting a double-breakthrough though. The keeper gets in between the throw and the stumps and then whirls his hand back to break the stumps. Good technique from Cross. 113/3
    14.4 flat, quick on leg stump. Pulled hard, pulled flat, and pulled straight to deep square leg. Leask sends the batsman off with a big roar. 137/4
    19.4 ah, some respite! Nabi has belted an overpitched delivery down the ground. Lots of muscle behind the ball and if not for the middle stump, the umpire would have been a goner. Then Sharif runs across, grabs the ball and uproots one of the remaining stumps. On-field umpire rules him out. Najib, who was backing up big time, appears to be out. But the fourth umpire has asked them to wait. Weird. Ball was in contact with the stumps as he pulled it out. 203/5

    1.5 the only man in the deep and he's picked him out! Moves outside off to open up the leg side - good decision with the field up and he's hitting with the wind here - but his placement needs more work. Shenwari at square leg runs to his left and takes a fine catch 10/1
    5.5 extra cover takes it! Moves away from the line to open up the off side but he can't get under the ball. Tries his hardest to hit it over the man, but it sits up for a reasonably simple catch 47/2
    6.1 punched into the covers, and it's a direct hit! He's struggling. He's struggling. He's gone! Yells in the stands as MacLeod departs. Mix-up between the two batsmen, Cross wanted the single all along but the MacLeod hesitated, so Cross hesitated too. In the end they go for it, MacLeod dives and does so quite well too. But he's short 48/3
    11.2 great stuff! The ball was swirling, he was tracking it over his shoulder too! Great stuff from Nabi. The ball wasn't the best. A full toss, which Cross swings looking for deep midwicket. It goes off the outside half and travels down the pitch instead. Gets caught in the wind and veers left as well. Nabi spots all of it and adjusts so well 98/4
    12.5 not enough room, not enough room but he has to hit out. Full and just outside off, slugged down the ground. Doesn't get enough elevation because he didn't get under it well enough. Simple catch at long-on 111/5
    16.5 that's the last nail in the coffin? It's a full toss, Mommsen this time gets under this a bit too much. Gets way too much height on the swipe over wide long-on. Shafiqullah runs to his right and takes a good, sliding catch 162/6
    17.1 skis down the track, gets it on the full and flicks it down the throat of deep midwicket. Hit it well enough, but didn't pick the gap. Leask is utterly disconsolate as he stands in the middle of the pitch, while Shahzad exults wildly 163/7
    19.2 is that it? Well taken at long-on. It's the slower ball again, legcutter. The batsman goes for a wild swing, mistimes it. Shafiqullah runs in and takes it nicely. 173/10
    18.1 off comes middle! Its full, it's straight, it's fast. The tailender swings and misses, the ball kisses the pads and deflects onto the stumps. de Lange walks back head down. 171/8
    18.4 another one, cleaned him up with a top-class yorker. Full on middle and off, Evans swings helplessly. Had no chance. Is something the matter with him though? Didn't celebrate at all, and went down on his haunches. A back problem? 171/9
