    0.1 dramatic start! Hafeez's age old problem of poking at away-going deliveries results in his downfall. This one is full and angling away, he plays a loose drive, no feet movement whatsoever, and the thick edge is pouched at second slip. Straightforward catch, as simple as they come 0/1
    11.3 top edges a pull towards midwicket where Khalid runs around, comes up with a juggle and eventually hangs on. End of a fine knock from Malan, largely played support act to Kamran. Did what he needed to. That should come as a relief for Islamabad 122/2
    15.3 it was short, there to be hit. Kamran struck it well but found square leg. End of an exhilarating innings. Pays the price for trying to fetch it from outside off. Extra pace of Sami did the trick there for Islamabad Stunning knock 150/4
    12.3 Ajmal lets out a roar. Plays for the turn when there is none. This was full and drifted back in, Morgan looked to work it across the line and missed it altogether. The umpires conferred to see if the ball hit the stumps off the keeper's pad, but replays indicate there was absolutely no doubt. Morgan's first outing here today has been far from a memorable one 126/3
    17.5 healthy nick through to Haddin. Once again the short ball has done the trick. Looked to pull off the front foot, but the ball got big on him and flew off the edge to the keeper. How Zalmi have collapsed! 167/7
    16.4 Dhoni-like helicopter shot which he reached out to play, but found the lone man at deep extra cover. Hit really well, but picked out the fielder. 157/5
    17.4 dolly for Misbah at midwicket. The short ball has done the trick for Watson again. Afridi looks to pull but is once again beaten for pace as Watson dug this in short, got it off the top half of the bat and Misbah made no mistake. Afridi reacted a fraction of a second late there, really at this level, that's all is the difference between a big shot and a miscue 167/6
    18.5 sensational from Haddin. Retired from international cricket but still has enough in this old legs. This pull was top-edged, it flew straight over his head. Fine leg was running in, but Haddin, who ran nearly 30 yards backwards, called for it and made it look ridiculously simple. These kind of catches - running backwards - can't be easy 169/8

    19.4 lofted, mistimed, cover calls for it and takes it easily. Watson continues to pick wickets. This was bowled at length outside off, he went for a big biff over the infield but couldn't get much bat on it 182/9

    17 dolly of a catch to long-on. What was the need to look for an ugly hoick, you must ask. Smith looks to back away and slog across the line but it was a slower delivery and so he's completely deceived by the change in pace. Was through with the stroke, which he checked at the last moment, as the ball lobbed to the fielder. He's played well though, a half-century during the course of two important partnerships 166/3
    1.3 big appeal for lbw and they've got him. Interesting to see if the ball pitched outside leg. Sharjeel looks to whip it across the line but misses it completely. That surely would have gone on to hit the stumps. Big, big wicket first up for Peshawar Zalmi 14/1
    13.1 the change of bowling has done the trick. This was slower and fuller outside off, he looks to go over cover but is deceived by the change in pace, plays too early and ends up getting a thin edge that is gleefully accepted by Kamran Akmal. End of a super knock that has kept Islamabad alive 118/2
