    2.2 good length and angled in, pushed to mid-off. Hamilton casually runs across for a single. The fielder (Hayat) throws the stumps down. Bullseye. Hamilton is in trouble. Silly error. Hamilton neither slides his bat nor plonks it down. The bat is in the air, as is the front foot. The back foot is outside the crease. Farcical run-out. Hamilton has to go. He has tossed away a bright start 20/1
    16.4 target practice again. Shabby full toss, this should have been smashed over midwicket. Instead, Sibanda mis-hits it to Chapman. Simple catch 125/6
    4.2 Tanwir strikes, Mutumbami holing out to long-on for a duck. He steps away outside leg, Tanwir chases the batsman with a shorter offering. The ball does not quite come on. Dragged to Nadeem Ahmed. He hangs onto the catch in front of his face 38/2
    6.1 Williams plays on now, this does not nutmeg the keeper. Instead, the ball jams into the stumps off the inside edge. Slightly short but not too wide outside off. Williams slashes a cut and drags on. Subdued celebrations from Tanwir 53/3
    7.5 lobs a full toss, which is driven towards long-on. The pair push for the second. Raza runs towards the danger end. Campbell gathers the throw and breaks the stumps to catch Raza short. He is not even in the frame. HK hitting back after a fast start, second run-out of the innings 62/4
    16.1 Aizaz slips in a slower short ball outside off. Waller chases it and cuts it in the air. He hit it well but straight into the lap of Shah at sweeper cover, chest-high clasp 123/5

    17.2 pinned plumb in front! Full straight ball, Tiripano goes for a two-ball duck. He misses the reverse-sweep. Hit on the back thigh in front of middle. The finger went up instantly. It would have crashed into middle and leg. Zim lose three wickets in eight balls 127/7
    19.1 back of a length on off, belted flat to long-on. Chigu wants two. He wants the strike. The fielder rifles an accurate throw to catch Wellington well short;the bowler tips the bails off 145/8

    16.2 Hamilton looks relieved. Ntini claps. He has been belting out his encouragement all through the chase. Slower full ball on off, Atkinson gets elevation but not the desired distance. Swings and finds long-on. Williams completes the overhead catch. Atkinson tosses his head back in despair 108/4
    4.1 Campbell struggles for timing, falls for 9 off 19 balls. He steps out to meet a short ball. 110ks. He can only drag it to Hamilton at mid-on. Bad day out with the bat on return. Tiripano has his hands aloft 15/1
    8.1 Wellington strikes and roars! This snakes in with the arm on middle, Hayat drops to one knee, but can't connect with a sweep. Hong Kong fall behind further. The tracker shows that it would have crashed into middle and leg 43/2
    13.2 Chapman holes out off a full toss. Ntini is up on his feet, he is pumped. Chapman steps out and manufactures a full toss. Slogged to deep midwicket. Sibanda makes no mistake here, running to his left 75/3
    18.2 Rath manufactures room outside leg, Tiripano does well to follow him. The batsman goes for a lofted hit, but ends up plopping a catch to cover 130/5
