    1.3 Poynter has redemption. He makes amends for the misfield in the deep the previous over. Short and climbs outside off with extra shoulder. Irfan does not connect properly with a pull. He skews it in the air off a top edge. Poynter settles under it at mid-on 8/1
    10.1 bowled'em. The middle stump is tiled back. Full and flat, Rath shuffles across off and does not connect with a sweep. Dockrell hits the stumps. End of a start-stop innings from the teenager 52/2
    11.5 leg-side wide and swift work from Wilson to knock the bails off. Has Khan been stumped? He is in trouble, he has to depart. This was an innocuous ball down leg, Khan can't glance it away with the angle. He loses his balance, falls over and drifts out of the crease. He can't turn back in time while Wilson shows off his reflexes... 65/3
    19.6 Chapman falls off the last ball of the innings. Good length and outside off, Chapman wants to launch it over long-on. He mis-hits it and picks out the fielder 129/8
    12.5 Dockrell strikes again! The forefinger goes up. Arm-ball on middle, Hayat attempts a another sweep but only connects with thin air now. Trapped plumb in front... 74/4
    13.4 Atkinson makes room again, KOB hits the top of off now. KOB has his hands aloft in joy. Back of a length, the batsman aims to run it down to third man and misses. The ball kisses the face and disturbs the stumps 83/5
    15.2 soft, soft dismissal. Short ball, possibly a slower one to foil Aizaz's pull. Tamely chipped to midwicket. Stirling flings himself forward and takes it.. 92/6
    19.1 You can't keep Poterfield out of action. He has been superb on the field. Mooney ventures wide of the crease and bangs a bumpy short ball. Tanwir has to fetch it from outside off. Drags a pull and holes out to deep midwicket 119/7

    1.6 caught at deep third man.. Balbirnie departs off the very next ball. Chapman owes Aizaz a drink tonight. Balbirnie steps away makes room and slashes hard, skying it to deep third man, where the fielder moves to his right, judges it and snaps it up at the edge of the boundary 9/1
    8.2 impressive running catch at deep midwicket. Irfan breaks the stand. Back of a length and outside off, Stirling does not control a pull. Miscues it in the air off a top edge, Nadeem runs forward and then to his left to pouch it 52/2
    17.5 The leg stump is splintered. Pin-point yorker from Amjad, it dips under the swinging bat and knocks out the leg stump. Big, big wicket for Hong Kong 105/5
    11.2 KOB is short of the crease at the non-strikers' end. On a length and outside off, crashed to long-off. Porterfield wants a couple. KOB, who was a bit slow/casual, has to pay the price. Accurate throw and Nizakat takes the bails off 63/3
    15.6 Wilson has been strangled down the leg side. He shakes his head as he trudges back. Back of a length and sliding down leg again. Wilson folds low in the crease as he aims to lap-scoop it over short fine leg. He does not get hold of the stroke, gloves it behind to Atkinson, who accepts the catch with glee 93/4
    18.3 edged behind. Ireland are sliding quickly. Back of a length and jags in outside off. He loads up for a pull and can only under-edge it to Atkinson. The umpires check for a possible no-ball. Irfan's footing is fine and Poynter has to go. 106/7
    17.6 Bye, bye Thompson. Hurled full and outside off, driven to extra cover and Thompson sets off for a speedy single. Afzal attacks the ball and throws the stumps down at the non-strikers' end. Tense faces in the Ireland camp 105/6

    18.5 holes out to Hayat at long-on. Back of a length and on middle, Dockrell punts it straight down the gullet of the fielder. Make that four wickets in seven balls 106/8
