    2.4 trapped lbw? It's given but Akmal's reviewing. Good length on middle and going straight through. Akmal tries to sweep this fine so takes his front leg completely across to the off side, but misses completely. Hits his front leg, and no bat involved. It's all coming down to the height now. Replays say it would've hit leg stump, and that's a big wicket 12/1
    5.6 it's the quicker one that does the trick! Good length on off, and zooting into his pads. Tries to defend but can't get his bat down in time. Doesn't help that Fletcher's on the back foot too. The umpire has no hesitation to raise his finger 38/3
    4.1 caught and bowled! Tossed up on middle stump and tries to defend back to Patel. He misreads the flight and is through his shot too early. Hits the bat's top half and goes to Patel's left. Comfortably completed by the left-arm spinner 26/2
    12.3 looks to swing this over long-off, but ends up toe-ending this to the fielder there. Didn't quite get the power he would've liked, may have stopped on him just a touch as well. The bat face turned in his hand as well. 90/4
    16.4 cleaned him up, the off stump cartwheels. Full, fast and flat on off stump, Dawson backed away to go over cover but missed it completely. 117/8
    14.1 toe-ends a pull back to the bowler. This is a skiddy length ball that beats him for pace. Talat is doing a wonderful job. Saad Nasim didn't look like he was in any position to play that stroke. 101/5
    15.4 this is as plumb as it can get. Outstanding bowling from Shadab. Foxes Sammy with a superb googly that pitches on off and rips back in to beat Sammy's inside edge. He played all around that. So sure was Shadab that he didn't even bother turning back to appeal. 111/6
    15.5 another appeal, but a stifled one. Went for the pull but was hit on the right thigh. Impact was just on off. Islamabad chose to review, replays confirm this would've gone on to hit middle and off. This was a zooter that Shadab didn't quite execute as well as he would've liked, but it doesn't matter because he's got the wicket. Decision overturned 111/7
    17.5 super shot, even better catch. Chadwick Walton, you beauty. This was a short ball on off, he backed away and muscled this pull. Walton at deep midwicket had to be mindful of the ball dying on him, could've also been in the firing line with the ball hitting him on the face if he missed. Buut he dived dull length forward and ensured it was a soft landing with the ball not bobbing out despite his elbows hitting the turf. 121/9

    8.5 taken at point! Short on off, and Ronchi makes room to cut. Hits it really well, but straight to Fletcher. The ball was travelling but Fletcher's catching is always great. Plucked out of thin air 96/1
    11.6 this is a very poor stroke under the circumstances. What was the need to try and hit out when the asking rate was well under control? Farhan looks to take on Wahab's pacy short ball, can't get any power or timing behind the pull. Ends up top-edging it to deep midwicket who takes a dolly. 112/4
    9.1 chopped on! Good length outside off, but jagging slightly away. Tries to punch off the back foot but big gap between body and bat. Takes the bat's inside edge and crashes into the base of off stump 97/2
    10.3 leading edge, and taken! Another caught-and-bowled today. Full on middle, and Duminy tries to work it towards the leg side. Through his shot too early, and the ball pops straight back to Jordan. He dives forward and completes an excellent catch. Sammy's pumped too 102/3
    13.1 what is Islamabad doing? Hara-kiri. Another one bites the dust. Samit Patel looks to play an ugly hoick, gets it high on the bat and Hafeez times his jump superbly to grab that at midwicket. 115/5
    13.6 this is a superman effort from superman Chris Jordan. You will not see catches better than that. This is magnificent. Short ball, skiddy ball on middle stump, Shadab looks to go through with the pull but hits hit high on the bat. Jordan at mid-on ran to his right but this was dying on him, and so he dived full stretch to his right to pluck that. Hasan Ali gave Shadab a send-off too, not sure that was needed but there's life in this game and how. 116/6
    16.1 the middle stump has been flattened by a yorker that tails in to sneak through. Reverse swing, pure pace. 148/7
