5.05 pm Emotions are boiling over even before the first ball! Mohammad Shahzad has come up to Tamim Iqbal and was having a very animated conversation, which is cut short as Tamim walks over to the umpire. Nigel Llong shoves the camera away before having a few stern words. Nabi to start us off, around the wicket
