    3.4 and he goes down the track again but this time he holes out to long-on, this was not hit in the middle of the bat and he has only managed to find the long-on fielder who had run in... 47/1
    16.4 slower, shorter and pulled straight to deep square-leg! He was trying to go over the rope but the slowness of the delivery beat him, and I think he was also surprised by the length 134/4
    10.4 finally goes for a heave over mid-wicket, and gets some bat on that too but it pops straight into the hands of the deep mid-wicket for a simple catch, Borgas takes it and Hafeez departs 88/2
    14.1 hits in the air and caught at short extra-cover! It was pitched right up to the bat on the off side, went for a drive, straight to the fielder and a breakthrough 117/3
    17.5 tries to cut it away and is bowled! It was on the middle, wanted to cut away, was giving himself room, misses a straight one and is bowled! 142/6
    17.2 gone, run-out off a direct hit! It was driven to the right of the bowler, who gets a hand to that, there was some confusion in the running and the mid-on fielder swooped down and throws down the striker's stumps, direct, and the umpire Asoka de Silva, without help from the third ump rules it out. 137/5
    18.3 round the stumps, yorker and bowled! It was sent down from around outside the off and it was swinging back into the left-hander, he missed it completely and the bails go for a jog after the ball hits the stump 150/7
    19.5 round the stumps and tailing into the bat, dug out well and it seemed like it was going down for a single, they are already off for a single, but the bowler dives and fields well, and more importantly hits the stumps direct from four yards away, well short of the crease! 161/9
    18.5 another one bites the dust, it was a bouncer this time, and the batsman wanted to upper cut it over third-man, got a good portion of the bat too, but the tall Nannes was lurking at third-man and he takes a simple catch. 152/8

    6 gone, out, caught and bowled! He was trying to hit it over the off side by giving himself room, gets nowhere with the stroke except back to the bowler and that's easily caught by the bowler to his left 40/2
    3.5 bowled 'em! through the gate and sends the captain back, it was deviating back into the bat too and he missed it completely 29/1
    8.2 slower one outside the off stump, and he flashes at it, suddenly there was a huge appeal and the umpire has given him out caught behind! It seems to have taken a feather through to the keeper! 57/3
    10.1 gone, out, caught off a top-edge! outside the off and he goes for a slog, high, high in the air but it is captain MJ under it and he takes it very well 62/4
    12.2 outside the off stump and driven straight to short cover! The required-rate was climbing and they needed to go for it, he went down the track to drive it away but managed only to get it to the short cover fielder who dives in front to pick it up 72/6
    12 bowled him this time, tossed up yet again and it was a straighter one, the batsman went for it yet again, missed it and the stumps are hit! 72/5
    13.1 gone, lbw to a 'Doosra'! It pitched on middle, on a length and did not turn into the bat as it usually does for him, the batsman was expecting an offie and played for it, befuddled by the straighter one, misses it 73/7
    18.4 slower one and beats the batsman all ends, following up that quick bouncer this was an excellent fuller, slower one, he outside edges it to the point fielder 91/9
    13.3 outside the off and pushed to the point fielder, went for a quick run, sent back by the non-striker and by the time he realises it, the throw has already come in, he tries to dive back but Akmal removes the bails and they have lost their eighth! 73/8

    19.1 out, bowled, end of match! on the middle stump, there was no foot movement and the defensive stroke left a lot of gap between the bat and the pads and down went the bails 98/10
