    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
    not out
    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
