Khan to Vaas, FOUR, what a shot from Vaas. It was full in length, not overpitched, but Vaas leaned forward to cream it on the up and through wide mid-off. Eye-catching stroke.

Khan to Vaas, 1 no ball, from a round-arm action and spears a really full delivery well outside off, left alone . And guess what another no ball.

158.6

Khan to Vaas, no run, Review last one if it's unsuccessful. Appeal for lbw. The ball cut in off a length from outside off stump, moved past the defensive stroke and hit him on the back pad in front of the off stump. It would have hit the middle. The only question is whether there was an inside edge. The umpire has said NOT OUT. Then the third umpire must have reckoned there was an inside edge. Hmm...
