    4.4 shortish, and skidding through, the batsman tries to pull it but its poor execution and conception and third man, seeing it late, takes the swirler low down in front of him 20/1
    49.4 OK, this is getting silly now. How much more "interesting" can it be? Chand hits a short ball, comes off the middle of the bat, almost too well, and to the cover-boundary fielder! 278/7
    36.3 Aparajith falls, looking for the lap shot behind the wicket and in the process gives the catch to Zia at short fine leg. Good knock from Aparajith. 195/2
    39.5 there's confidence and there's thinking you can get away with anything, Zol doesn't this time. Swivels to paddle one that bounced on him, doesn't get enough meat on it, and fine leg inside the circle pouches moving to his left. Turning point? 214/3
    44.4 turn and bounce and the attempted pull to the short delivery takes the top edge and backward point inside the circle takes the catch 247/4
    46.1 comes in with the arm from outside off, bit more bite and slices through the bat and pad gap to knock back middle 255/5
    47.5 incredible shot selection! Comes down the wicket half a stride to slash at a short ball, slices away to long-off, runs in and though Pakistan haven't made any catch look easy, they've clung on 268/6
    50 Phenomenal! Middled again but chipped rather than driven and mid-off at first backing away, finds the ball coming to him and he just turns to take the gentle offering. Kalaria slams his pads with his bat and the crowd of 2000 are ecstatic/relieved/disappointed all in turn - India turned victory into a tie and Pakistan turned a loss into a tie. "Interesting" yes, incredible even more so! 282/8
