    7.1 he can't do much wrong, can he? Floats a short ball on middle, Sharjeel can't time the pull, gets it high on the bat as long-on takes the easiest of catches. Looked to go a lot square, but didn't position himself well as he made contact. 58/2
    3.3 soft dismissal, there's the revenge. Hafeez looks to go downtown but didn't get to the pitch, checked his stroke at the last moment as the ball lobs off the splice to the bowler, who accepts it gleefully. 23/1
    12.5 as easy as they come as far as decisions go. Too full, shaped to sweep but was done in by the length. Once he missed, there was little doubt as to where that was headed 94/3
    18.6 outstanding, simply wow. This was a flat hit over the infield, Thisara, at wide long-off, started running almost as soon as Akmal made contact, it was a flat hit and Thisara simply threw his hands up as he moved to his right, did well to hold on even as the momentum threatened to knock him back. He slid over, showed excellent balance. Superb athleticism. 150/4
