    2.1 Raees has his man now. Asif Ali bends low and makes no mistake this time at first slip. Full and Raees explores the channel outside off, finds movement off the pitch, Sanga hangs his bat out and snicks it behind. Looks like the rain has juiced up the pitch. Rare failure for Sanga 8/1
    8.2 Shehzad has been put out of his misery by Finn. Back of a length and climbing onto the hips, Shehzad pulls but can't keep it down. He hits it straight to deep fine leg. A soft innings meet a soft end 31/4
    3.5 Sami bounces out Bravo and lets out a big roar. Banged in short at the shoulder, angling away, cramps up Bravo for room. The batsman loses his shape and falls over. The resultant top edge is snaffled by Finn diving forward from short fine leg. The England quick seemed to have misjudged it but then moved in and to his right to recover 15/2
    5.2 Flapped into the lap of Raaes at mid-on. Good length, and nipping away outside off, Maqsood shapes to slug it over midwicket. Instead, he pops a leading edge to Raees. Sami is having a ball in Dubai 19/3
    16.2 short, wide, possibly an offcutter, nailed straight to backward point. You just can't get it past Shadab - one of the best fielders in the world. Russel has his hands aloft and celebrates. Malik cuts hard but can't keep it down. He had stabilised Multan's innings, who will finish it now? 95/6
    14.4 Russell hits back to trap Pollard. It looks pretty adjacent but Pollard asks for a review. This was the change-up offcutter, grips in the surface, and hits the front pad as Pollard hangs back and plays around it. The on-field out decision is vindicated. The tracker returns three reds. Pollard, however, has given this innings a leg-up 85/5
    17.5 112.4ks dipping full-toss, foxes the batsman, and leaves the stumps in a mess. Slower delivery from the back of the hand, look at the sharp dip on the bat. Badar aims to swing across the line but misread the change up. Even if he had read it, I suspect he would have hit it. Great skill from Raees: he can swing the new ball, get it to skid off the pitch, bowl yorkers and slower ones. Gun T20 bolwer 105/7
    18.5 Sami swoops down on the ball, turns around, and throws the stumps down to run out Tanvir. His day keeps getting better. Back of a length on off stump, cramps Tahir for room. He fends it to where short cover may have been. Sami runs in and runs out Tanvir 108/8
    19.1 knocked 'em over. Yorker on the leg stump, Tahir backs away, swings wildly, and misses. Excellent T20 bowling from Raees 109/9

    19.5 Asif Ali nails a direct hit from deep midwicket. Irfan is caught short on the second. This was really full on off, he can't get under the length and toe-ends it to the deep, where Asif puts on a show 113/10

    0.3 Irfan generates extra bounce and away movement to have Ronchi nicking off. Kicks up from a back of a length outside off and nips away, Ronchi wafts with no feet and tickles it behind. Pollard hangs onto a chest-high catch. Perfect start for Multan 0/1
    4.2 Tahir sets off on a celebratory stint. Catch him if you can. Quicker one from Tahir, full and fizzes in, then turns away slightly to beat the outside edge and clatter into off stump. Tahir provides Multan with the breakthrough 37/2
    7.3 pitched up and angling away just outside off, draws Walton forward to drive. The batsman drives with a slicing finish and finds Shehzad at backward point 47/3
    10.2 shorter and spins away outside off - legbreak - Tahir finds extra bounce and has Ali feathering it behind. Sanga rides the bounce and takes it smartly 63/4

    10.3 Tahir sets off on back-to-back celebratory sprints. He has turned the chase. This was another full wrong'un, Russell does not pick the variation - it breaks back in sharply - Russell has a short stride and plays outside the line for the legbreak. He is hit below the knee-roll on the front pad in line with middle. No bat involved, Ultraedge defects nothing. But was it spinning down leg? The tracker returns umpire's call on leg stump. Tahir claims the big wicket of Russell and is on a hat-trick. Scenes in Dubai 63/5
