12.1

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, no run, starts with a back of length delivery, shaping away from the batsman a touch, blocked towards the off side

12.2

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, 2 runs, similar length, but the line is on legstump, guided towards fine leg for a couple

12.3

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, no run, fuller from Mathews, in the corridor outside off, a forward press from Malik

12.4

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, no run, length ball on offstump, Malik stays on the backfoot as he defends the ball towards mid-off

12.5

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, no run, same length, slighty wider, more defence from Malik, again towards mid-off

12.6

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, no run, short and wide outside off, Malik isn't tempted into chasing that one, it sails through to the keeper

Pakistan 42/4   AD Mathews 1-0-2-0
14.1

Mathews to Fawad Alam, no run, Mathews starts the over with a back of length ball, pitching outside off and nipping back a touch, Alam shoulders arms

14.2

Mathews to Fawad Alam, no run, length ball on just outside leg, Alam has been taking a big shuffle towards offstump on every delivery, this time the ball hits his pad, a stifled appeal for lbw as the ball pitched outside leg

14.3

Mathews to Fawad Alam, no run, similar ball, defended towards square leg by Alam

14.4

Mathews to Fawad Alam, no run, short and wide this time, Alam slaps it firmly but doesn't beat backward point

14.5

Mathews to Fawad Alam, FOUR, Alam's first boundary brings up Pakistan's fifty, there wasn't too much width to cut there, Alam throws his bat at it anyway, and connect nicely, the ball races away to the backward point boundary

14.6

Mathews to Fawad Alam, OUT, Alam's big early move toward the offstump costs him, he is way across to a ball that pitched on middle stump and held it's line, he misses as he tries to defend, and is rapped in front, Simon Taufel sends Alam on his way, no doubt about that one

Fawad Alam lbw b Mathews 16 (81m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 48.48

Pakistan 51/5   AD Mathews 2-0-6-1
16.1

Mathews to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, back of a length ball, shaping away from Malik, who carves it towards backward point, diving stop from Herath, Akmal could have been run out if there was a direct hit as he wasn't dragging his bat into the crease

16.2

Mathews to Kamran Akmal, no run, a bit of width for Akmal, who defends the ball towards point

16.3

Mathews to Kamran Akmal, no run, fullish on middle and leg, punched firmly towards mid-on by Akmal

16.4

Mathews to Kamran Akmal, no run, not as confident this time as he blocks a back of length ball outside off, bit of an inside edge as he defends

16.5

Mathews to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, nicely done by Akmal, opens the face of the bat to steer the ball between slip and gully for a boundary

16.6

Mathews to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, and another boundary for Akmal to end the over, a good-looking square drive from him to a length ball on offstump, the outfield is extremely quick and Herath had no chance once the ball got past him

Pakistan 61/5   AD Mathews 3-0-15-1
