2.3 what a catch! Sanga flies. He simply flies to his right and takes a one-handed screamer. Smith goes for an on-the-up drive through cover, only offers a thick outside edge and after that - considering it is such a massive deflection - Sanga takes centre stage. Leaps to his right, takes it right on the webbing. Then he brings the left hand over to steady it on as he falls to the ground. Fantastic from the 39-year old 12/1
    13.3 that's gorgeous. The set batsman Asif tries to be a bit cheeky, going deep in his crease to try and late cut the ball, but he waits for too long. Basically guides the ball into the keeper's gloves, undone by a little more turn than he expects. Usama Mir sets off on a jaunt. Good work from Sanga too, to rise with the ball 77/7
    3 chops on! That's a double-wicket over. No room for the cut. The bounce is too much as well. Perhaps he should have gone up and over the slips. But instead he goes for the shot through point, gets an inside edge and onto middle 12/2
    8.1 through him! What a strike. And it's the Wasim special. The arm ball, holding it with only the forefinger, aimed at a good length and skidding on. Misbah plays away from his body, offering a big gap between bat and pad and pays for it 47/3
    11 cleans him up! Karachi keep fighting. And Watson, coming forward to drive with a closed face, isn't there quick enough. The ball sneaks under his bat, hits the pad and then onto the stumps 61/4
    11.5 caught at cover. Couldn't have picked out the fielder better. Innocuous delivery. Almost a half-volley really. Could have smashed it. But instead he pops it to Bopara 69/5
    12.2 massive appeal for lbw and it's been given. Wasim is running through them. Is Pooran going to review? He really should because this may go down leg. And finally, they go for the check. It's the pace again, beating the batsman, especially with him playing a cross-bat shot over midwicket. No bat. Ball-tracking says it clips leg stump and the umpire's call of out is upheld 70/6
    14.4 plays all around the slower ball, it's back of the hand too, and the stumps are shattered. Just your average tail-ender hitting right across a striaght delivery 82/9
    13.4 appeal for lbw and Usama is certain about it. The umpire isn't so gives the benefit of the doubt to the batsman. Asks the review. This is a really full delivery on off stump, Sami comes forward to block, and he does so down the wrong line. The bat is beside the ball with him playing for turn. There isn't much, and because of that it hits pad first. This could be gone. Ball-tracking gives up all reds and Sami is outta here 77/8
    15.2 taken by long-on running to his left and Karachi are through. The defending champions Islamabad crash out, failing to chase 127. Length ball, skews it over the top and once the catch is taken, Amir borrows Raees' wicket celebration. Just standing there, tipping his head to the side and folding his arms. 82/10
