    10.4 gone this time, Tamim has holed out back to the bowler, easy catch and relief for the Nagenahira Nagas! Was on the middle and he wanted to drive it down, got a bit of an edge back to the left of the bowler 83/2
    2.4 outside the off stump and top-edged to first slip which was rather far from the stumps! Akmal got enough width to go after it but it did not hit the middle of the bat and flew away to the lone slip fielder who jumped up and caught it well 17/1

    17 gone now, bowled! Gets the length a tad fuller and he goes for that same slog shot, misses this time and the stumps are rattled, an end of an excellent stand 139/3
    18.3 goes for another slog, misses it and the off stump is rattled, Mahmood is back for a three-ball four 161/4

    0.5 edged and gone, caught at first slip! That was outside the off, angling away from the bat and takes the edge of the bat through to MJ, juggles a little but holds on to it well, a far cry from the dropped catches when Wayamba batted! 2/1
    4.5 this wasn't too short and he still went for the pull, missed and the leg stump is pegged back, second wicket down now 38/2
    6 gone this time, he wanted to go for that same stroke that had hit the bowler earlier, he hit it straight enough but off the toe of the bat and goes back to the bowler, takes the catch easily, throws it high in the air and then does a Brett Lee-like jig! 46/3
    10 and now he is gone, bowled! This was flighted up to the bat, tossed over his eye level, went down the track to slog it over but he misses and the ball clatters into the stumps 66/5
    7.5 another one bites the dust, it was a straighter one, on the middle and Rahim has chipped it straight to mid-on, a dolly accepted gleefully by the fielder 55/4

    13.1 comes down the track and has hit it straight to wide long-off, Hafeez shows them how to catch these skiers! 92/6
    16 slog swept away to deep square-leg and that is easily caught on the boundary, third wicket for someone who is unafraid of tossing them up 105/7
    17 gone, run-out, cut it to point and did not want a single, the non-striker kept running and came half way through, bit of a fumble from the bowler but he recovers in time to remove the bails 108/7
    18.4 goes down the track and for most of the flight of that stroke, one thought it was going for a six, but it is plucked from about seven feet above the boundary at deep square-leg 125/9
    19.5 slower on the middle and that has been spanked but straight to the fielder, caught easily to end a torturous chase for Nagenahira Nagas 134/10
