    4.1 caught behind again, the other Zadran strikes! He pitched short of a length and Ura could not handle the bounce with his pull shot. He got a faint top edge through to the keeper, who flings the ball in the air in celebration. That ball came on to Ura quite quickly. 14/2
    3.3 caught behind! That was some delivery from Dawlat ... he pitched it just short of a length and got it to bounce sharply and seam away at pace from the right-hander. Siaka barely moved his feet as he tried to drive from his crease, the bounce was too much for that shot and he got an edge to the wicket-keeper 14/1
    9.1 that looks pretty close too and the umpire agrees! That ball pitched in line from over the wicket to the left-hander and then went across, the batsman moved forward to drive but was hit on the pad. Was that missing off stump? Maybe just clipping ... 37/4
    7.2 that's out, it's got to be ... the umpire eventually raises the finger! The batsman tried to sweep but was too early on the shot because Nabi's pace was so slow, the ball beat the bat and hit him in line with off stump. On second thought, replays show the impact on the pad being marginal on off stump 30/3
    12.4 he's ramped it this time, and ramped it straight to third man! The batsman swayed back and angled his bat to let the ball bounce off it but got neither the height or the distance to clear the fielder on the boundary 55/5

    16.6 bowled him! Hassan bowls a full one that swings into the right-hander, the batsman aimed for a flick towards midwicket and the ball bent past the bat to hit off stump 89/6

    0.1 caught behind first ball! What screams of joy from PNG! That ball was so short and so wide, and Shahzad need not have played it. But what he did was reach for the ball without moving towards it, his feet were rooted. He ended up getting a toe edge through to the keeper. This game is on 0/1

    9.6 stumped him! Lovely ball from the legspinner, gave that a lot of flight and slowed his pace, enticing the batsman out of his crease and into a mighty heave. Stanikzai did not get to the pitch of the delivery, though, and connected with nothing as the ball spun away from his bat. The keeper had a straightforward stumping to make 57/2
    13.5 the reverse swat has failed Shenwari! The ball was really short but Shenwari got into an awkward position and hit the ball straight into the hands of the fielder at point 83/3
    16.4 Nabi's been caught this time! The ball was pitched on a shorter length well outside off, Nabi was hurried on the pull shot and got a top edge that swirled towards square leg and landed in Dai's hands 105/4
