    1.3 another one bites the dust. Yesterday's half-centurion is gone. Steps out to go over mid-off but hits it flat to Jordan there. He times his jump well to complete a straightforward catch. Trouble for Lahore, joy for Hasan Ali. 9/2
    1 see you later, Baz. The plan of starting with left-arm spin, which McCullum said was a challenge at the toss, has worked. Looks to pull, but this wasn't all that short, and so he couldn't get much power on the stroke and Malan took the simplest of catches at deep midwicket. 5/1
    10.1 superb catch by Kamran Akmal moving to his left! This is too full for him to ease it behind point, gets a thick edge which Akmal anticipates early and dives to complete the catch. 59/9
    2 what is happening there? Let's get a selfie says skipper Sammy. This is an outstanding catch by Hafeez at second slip. Umar Akmal chases a wide delivery, but can only manage a thick edge. The ball flew, make no mistake, and Hafeez moved swiftly to his left to complete a tumbling catch. Second duck in three innings for Umar Akmal 9/3
    3.3 what was all the fuss about? We saw a decision yesterday too, where Sanga wasn't sure if he took it cleanly, but was given out. Sammy wasn't sure if his fingers were completely underneath the ball, but it turns out that he actually has taken it cleanly. Back of a length delivery that jags away from off stump, Elliott hangs his bat out and gets a thick edge into Sammy's bucket hands at slip. 27/4
    6.2 his game was bordering on the thin line between being aggressive and over-aggressive, and has paid the price for it. Nowhere near the pitch of the ball as he looks to go over mid-off to slices it to Morgan who comes running in from deep cover, keeps his eyes on the ball and judges the catch to perfection. It was swirling around for a while, but Morgan made it look easy. 47/5
    7.1 brain freeze. Nothing else can describe what we're seeing. Looks to smash Hafeez into the stands at long-on but can only pick out Jordan in the deep. Why would you want to do that when you're already five down with 13 overs to play? Inexplicable 52/6
    8.5 this is self-destruction at it's very best. Six down, plenty of overs left. Why would you try to hit it to mid-on and take a run as risky as that? Tanvir was deep inside his crease as he played that short-arm jab. And so he had just that much more ground to cover. Took off late and in the end had given up as the throw hit the stumps direct at the bowler's end. He also made the stupid mistake of running diagonally, which isn't obviously the best way to. 53/7
    10 dragged on! This one was fired in at length, Bhatti goes onto the back foot to whip this away but gets into an awkward tangle. Plays all around it as the ball deflects off his pad back onto the stumps. 59/8

    10.2 all over. Short ball has done the trick. This was coming back in at some pace. Too late on the pull, gets a glove which Kamran Akmal accepts gleefully. This is the lowest score in PSL's short history. Look of disbelief in the Lahore camp. Happened all too quickly. Why? Brain freeze. Too many batsmen came out playing million dollar strokes when the need of the situation was to bide time and play out the overs. 59/10

    2.2 got him, got him. Ripper from Narine. Hafeez completely foxed by the turn. Played for one that goes away, this one sneaked through the big gap between bat and pad. Simplest of stumpings for Rizwan. What's happening here? Hello! Hafeez's dreadful run of form continues 4/2
    2 down the track and across the line a little too much as he looks to flick, but the ball swings back in a long way from outside off. Looks like it hit him on middle and leg. The ball still had some distance to travel but Aleem Dar felt it would have hit the stumps. 4/1
    7.1 excellent catch coming in from deep cover. Qalandars making Zalmi fight for every run. Kamran lofts it up and over the infield, but couldn't generate the kind of power he would have liked. It wasn't a chip, neither was it a full-blooded stroke. Poor from a seasoned campaigner. 24/3
    12 Aleem Dar thought long, hard, really hard. Even harder. And then raised his finger. This delivery was full, spun back in to beat Morgan's push and hit him on the pad. The ball deflected to short leg. The only question was if it would have missed the stumps, but it looks like Aleem has give him caught. Snicko showed nothing. 48/6
    11 he's hit this towards the longer boundary, where Elliott takes a simple catch at deep midwicket. His daughters didn't approve of the shot. Once again didn't get to the pitch of the ball and ended up dragging it leg dside. 47/4
    11.4 ripper of a catch from the skipper. There's life in this contest yet? The dip has got him the wicket. Maqsood was through with a booming drive, but didn't account for the turn, neither did he get to the pitch of the ball and simply chipped it to the off side where superman in the form of McCullum dived full length to his left to pluck a one-handed stunner 47/5
    13.4 you beauty! The wrong'un was coming, Sammy was completely foxed as he shaped to drive, played outside the line, got a big inside edge that deflected off the boot and onto the middle stump. Yasir does a Tahir, takes off on a 100-metre dash. What is happening here? If ever there was a manual on how not to approach a modest chase, this is it. 51/7
