    1.5 Kamran Akmal is usually involved in comedy wicketkeeping, this time it is a comical mix-up, not his fault though, he charged down the track looking to work the ball to the leg side, doesn't connect and the ball dribbles to the off side, he wanted a leg-bye, Shehzad also did, at least till he took two or three paces, after which Shehzad decided he didn't want one, Akmal was a long way down, Bhuvneshwar has plenty of time to take aim, he hits, the stumps are flashing and Akmal is on his way 9/1
    8.2 and Mishra strikes with a classic legbreak, Shehzad dances down the track, doesn't get near the pitch, the turn takes the ball past the outside edge, Dhoni completes one of the easier stumpings of his career, Pakistan in a bit of bother now, that was a lovely delivery from Mishra, showing you don't have to keep bowling darts to succeed in T20 47/3
    7.3 Jadeja can do no wrong, he gets a wicket in his first over, Hafeez holes out, the extra bounce in the track doing the trick, Hafeez looking for a big shot, gets a top edge and the ball swirls towards deep cover, Bhuvneshwar Kuamr runs in from the deep and takes a sharp catch 44/2
    17.2 a leading edge, the ball soars towards long-off, Raina waits under that one, takes it comfortably, another big wicket as Umar Akmal departs, he was looking to go towards long-on, but miscues it, Pakistan need Afridi magic now 103/5
    15.2 Mishra gets another one, Malik wants to repeat the six he hit in Mishra's previous over, he can't get it far enough this time, holes out to long-off and the partnership is broken 97/4
    18.5 there's no Afridi magic, with the bat at least, Raina gets his third catch of the innings and Afridi is on his way, looking to swat that off the front foot, a bit of a top edge and it carries to deep midwicket, Raina nearly let this one through, just hangs on though, with the tips of his fingers 114/6
    19.6 superb bit of fielding from Jadeja, Maqsood sends the ball towards long-on, Bhatti has left early and is back easily for the second, Jadeja has to go for the long throw, and he fires it in perfectly for Dhoni, who breaks the stumps before Maqsood can get back 130/7

    9.3 turn here for Ajmal, much more than Rohit expected, he was looking to cut the ball as it pitched well outside off, but it spins in a long way, and Rohit gets a bottom edge onto the stumps, Rohit swings his bat in frustration after the dismissal 64/2
    7.6 Dhawan perishes to the short ball again, though this time it is because he was going for another adventurous strokes, looking to hook when he is nowhere in position, top edge as it hits low on the blade, down to fine leg where Ajmal holds on, that innings wasn't quite easy on the eye, a flurry of slogs and close calls 54/1

    10.1 what a start from Bhatti, a quick full ball and Yuvraj's stumps are in disarray, 137kph, Yuvraj is stuck in the crease and looks to play across the line, offstump is reclining, Pakistan clawing their way back here 65/3
