    0.3 Would you believe it? Hong Kong have got rid of Butt for a duck. After bringing two deliveries in to the batsman, Haider took this one away and Salman stretched across to cover drive but edged it behind. The fielders are over joyed and why not. 0/1
    11.4 Wicket no 2. Malik goes. Malik went back and across to cut a short of length delivery low to left of backward point where it's held smartly. Fab catch that. He had to go low to his left and lunge forward as well. 67/2
    21.6 Nadeem has another wicket. What a game he is having. Despite being slog swept and paddled for boundaries he kept bowling slow and has been rewarded. He sucked Younis Khan down the track with a flighted delivery before turning it past him and leaving him stranded 135/4
    19.2 Yousuf is gone. Big wicket for the left-arm spinner Nadeem. Flighted delivery outside the off stump and Yousuf top edged the sweep shot to backward square leg 121/3
    23.2 Watch out for that man Nadeem. Does Misbah in by an arm-ball. Misbah's bat came outside the line, playing for the turn but the ball went on straight. Plumb. 140/5

    25.4 What a day Nadeem has had. He must be thinking this ODI cricket is too easy. Afridi in the bag now. He flighted it on the middle and leg stump, slow and dipping, Afridi didn't quite lean forward and checked his drive as the ball dipped rapidly on him and couldn't keep it down. Nadeem swooped low to his right-ankle height to pouch it. 150/6
    29.2 A run out now. What a strange day this has been for Pakistan. Nothing has gone right,. It was pushed to midwicket, yes... no ..yes no and gone. Sarfraz couldn't get back in time to beat the throw at the non-striker's end from Butt. 161/7
    46.2 full and on the off stump, driven straight to long-off. But it has been a very good knock from Sohail Tanvir. He stitched together a 100-run partnership with Fawad Alam to get Pakistan out of the hole. 261/8
    49.2 moves outside leg stump and digs out a low full toss, an attempted yorker, to long-on where a tumbling catch is held 283/9

    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
