    29.2 loopy spinning delivery from middle and leg, Tabarak misses a sweep and is hit on the pad in front of middle 102/6
    7.4 banged in short, just outside leg and he top-edged the pull shot straight to fine leg 28/1
    8.1 Strikes the timber first ball. It came in from short of length towards the middle and off stump line and went through the defenses. The bat came down in an angle, he was squared up as well and that combo usually doesn't work out well. 28/2
    12.3 The middle stump has been pegged back. Another nip backer and he doesn't get behind the line, neither does he bring the bat in line in time. Crash. 45/4
    9.2 yorked him! It crashes into the base of the middle stump. He tried to bring the bat down but couldn't close the gate in time. 32/3
    27.5 tossed outside off stump, scooped hard and it bounds off Younis Khan at silly point and over covers. Younis must be hurt there as it ricocheted of his head. he was not wearing a helmet. 92/5
    21.2 timber! He bowls the flighted legbreak on line with the offstump, Atkinson fails to read the flight and plays all around it as the ball straightens and pegs the offstump back 76/5
    33.5 Munir Dar is run out. He had nudged close on the leg side and kept running. No response from Amar, though. Meanwhile, Sarfraz rushes across, picks the ball and gets back to break the stumps. Munir was livid with his partner 126/7
    36.6 it lands full on the middle stump, the batsman doesn't connect with the sweep shot and is struck in front 133/8
    37.2 Nadeem Ahmed swings a flighted delivery on the legs to deep midwicket. And it's all over. Abbas won't come out to bat and the game is done. 133/9
