    11.2 what a tame dismissal, but the bowler deserves credit for this one, he has done Hafeez in the flight, enticed him forward, then it dipped on him, Hafeez, already stretching a long way, went for the cover drive nevertheless, and only got it as far as backward point who dived forward to take a low catch 31/2
    8.4 Jamshed has fallen to the pull, Dilshan had gone the same way, hurried into the shot by a skiddy short ball outside off, and only ends up lobbing it for mid on to come in and settle under it 29/1
    12.5 and another one goes, Pakistan in big trouble, a hole that they have dug for themselves with a timid start, Younis looking to flick vigorously through midwicket, he had fallen on this shot against Bangladesh too, what a catch from Maharoof, though, it was dying on him as he ran in from mid on, got his hands to it, but it almost rolled out as he went down on the ground, he somehow balanced it in one hand, even as it whirred on his palm like a spinning top 33/3

    38.6 he perishes, but after having set up Pakistan's win, wanted to finish it with another six over midwicket, instead he ended up hitting it high, almost vertically, in the air, I don't envy the fielder who has to settle under it, it is Tharanga, and he does a very good job in the end, tumbles down on the ground around midwicket, remains there for a moment, but he has pouched it 185/4
