Commentary

It was a stunning knock from Pollock. The game appeared to be all over when he walked in but he had other ideas. He drove, cut and pulled his way and almost threatened to wipe the smiles off the Asian faces. He was supported brilliantly by Chigumbura and Odoyo but with their departure, it became an uphill task. Even for Pollock.

Man-of-the-Match: Who else but Shaun Pollock.

That's it from us. Good bye and Good Luck.

Mashrafe Mortaza to Pollock, OUT, Pollock is out, going for the jugular. Asian XI have won. It was slightly short in length, on the off stump line and Pollock shaped to pull it over midwicket. But it was a slower one from Mortaza and he was early into the stroke and sent it straight to Yousuf at midwicket. It was a sensational innings from Pollock but he couldn't quite finish it off.
