    6.3 bowled him! Held it back a bit, both in terms of pace and in terms of length, and Shahzad is through that big sweep too early and the ball crashes into middle stump 63/1
    12.5 loopy flight wide of off and Ghani has to make all the power himself, Raza had slowed it down considerably. Hit it hard, looking to hit straight down the ground, but only managed to pick out the fielder at long-off 104/3
    8.3 and it's a short sighting. Shorter this time from Cremer and he pulls, doesn't quite connect as cleanly as he would like, and Raza takes a good catch diving to his left at deep midwicket 75/2
    13.2 length ball on off stump, and Sadiq has picked out deep midwicket. Plays a powerful slog-sweep, clearing his front leg, and Chibhabha takes a good low catch, diving forward 105/4
    17.5 full-toss on off stump, this time it's angling into the batsman and he looks to clear his front leg and go over the on side, ends up finding Raza coming in from the long-on boundary 157/5
    19.1 slower ball outside off, and Gulbadin is run out. Ashraf looked to slog across the line, and it bounced through to the keeper. They looked to sneak a bye, and Mutumbami's underarm throw is pinpoint accurate 173/7
    18.2 shortish outside off, and he's chopped it on. That came on slower than he expected as he looked to pull, only managed a bottom edge onto the stumps 162/6

    0.3 short, a bit of width, and it was there to be hit, but he thrashed at it and picked out the man at backward point 2/1
    11.1 and he strikes first ball. Third man was inside the circle, and he might have premeditated the reverse sweep here. The line was too close to off stump for that, and Nabi cleverly bowled it a bit slower, and the ball turned in and went past him almost after he had completed his shot, and crashed into the stumps 95/4
    2.6 short again, and this time he takes on the pull. It's quick, though, and he's late on the shot, hits the top part of the bat and pops up in the air, simple catch for mid-on. They check to see if Dawlat has overstepped, and his front foot looks okay. Another wicket for Dawlat, ends a dangerous-looking innings 32/2
    6.1 starts with a short ball on off stump, and Mutumbami has clubbed it high in the air and straight to wide long-on. Made a decent connection, but I'm not sure he was looking to hit it that high in the air. Maybe it came on quicker than he expected and didn't have time to roll his wrists over the pull 54/3

    17.5 stumped, gone. Jumps down the pitch and slogs across the line. It's the straighter one, fired in, beats the inside edge, Shahzad collects down the leg side and has the bails off in a flash 151/5
    19.1 sets himself up deep in his crease and Dawlat bowls it full and wide. Slices it up in the air and is caught at sweeper cover. They chance a second run even though it's gone straight to the fielder, and the throw is good and flat, catches Chigumbura well short as he tries to dive into the crease. It's all happening here 170/6
    19.6 full and wide, slices it high over the off side, he's hit it well, and... and he's found the man at deep cover. Simple catch at chest height for Gulbadin Naib, and he tumbles to his left as he completes it 182/7
