    13.2 there's no stopping Pollard. Tell you what, it was not as easy as he made it seem. Smith tries to do what Haddin did earlier and it seems like this is a clean shot. The ball was full again but unlike the previous one, it is coming into Smith, so you would think he has made better connection. Well, he has. Just not high enough for Pollard to watch it sail as he runs to his right and simply sticks his right hand out to pluck it out of nowhere, just like that 101/5
    4.3 and just when it seemed like he was getting some momentum going, he has picked out mid-on. And it is Pollard, he does not drop those. Fullish and Duckett was looking to clip it away. Fails to keep it along the ground, sends it to the right of Pollard who dives and snaffles it. It was the back-of-the-hand legcutter, actually, so the lack of pace probably meant he could not keep it down 37/1
    8 there was never a run there, it seemed like. Very good fielding sees the back of Talat. It was pushed wide of the bowler, to covers, and Smith called for the run. The bowler runs to his left and throws it to Sangakkara who does the rest 57/1
    9.3 you could see this coming. There had to be some sense of urgency shown halfway through the 10th over. And it has fetched a wicket for Islamabad. Short of a length ball but there is no pace on it. Slower again and all Watson can do on the pull is drag it down to long-on and straight into the hands on Kieron Pollard 61/3
    13.1 Haddin has picked out Kieron Pollard. Haddin was looking to launch this fuller ball over long-on, just that it was wide outside off which meant he had to fetch it and drag it from all the way there. And the cow corner is a long boundary. Pollard runs to his right to snaffle it 101/4
    14.4 oh, what a shot! Great improvisation, but unfortunately for him, he has holed out to fine leg. Moves away towards off and uses the pace on the delivery as he tried to scoop it. Malik runs in and pouches it 121/6
    15 moves towards off again and shifts back deep into the crease. Full ball and Misbah whips it away but keeps it in the air and it goes straight into the hands of Gayle's bucket-sized hands at square leg. Barely had to move a muscle to take that one 123/7

    11 nails a perfect googly that sees the back of Azam. That is the ball of the night and could be a candidate for the ball of the tournament. Azam plays down the wrong line as he expects it to turn like a traditional legbreak would do. It was on a length and spins it to breach his defence take out his stumps 92/4
    6 highly entertaining over comes to an end with Gayle perishing. Ajmal has the last laugh but what a start. Gayle showing the first glimpses this PSL of what he's capable of. Comes down the track and tries to heave it over the leg side. But the width outside off means he has to fetch it and he does not do a good job of it. Skews it off the leading edge to Irfan at short third man 64/1
    8.3 fails to clear long-on. It was pitched up and angled away outside off. Sangakkara tries to launch it but it goes flat and hard straight into the hands of the fielder stationed there. Sangakkara is furious with himself, whips the air with his blade as he walks off. Credit to the bowler for enticing the shot by floating it up 80/2
    10.5 can't understand the hurry. Malik stays in the crease this time and looks to slog it. But it is well outside off and he gets a top edge. Haddin settles under it 92/3
