15.1

Abbott to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, short of length delivery on off stump, the batsman pulls it towards wide long-on for a single

15.2

Abbott to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, ohhh! Almost another one. The batsman goes for a swat over the mid-off fielder, but gets hit high on the bat and it lobs to the left of mid-on. Just drops short

15.3

Abbott to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, this time he drives it inside out to deep cover from a length

19.1

Abbott to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, slower delivery on off, it is a low full toss and Afridi loves it. He bludgeons this over the bowler's head for a one-bounce four

19.2

Abbott to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, bowls it full and fast on off stump, but Afridi gets and inside edge fine on the leg side. The short fine leg fielder seems to have it covered but he makes a hash of it while going for a slide

Abbott to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, full and fast on the middle stump line, it is pushed towards long on for a single

19.4

Abbott to Umar Gul, OUT, caught at deep midwicket! And they keep finding the fielders in the deep. It was a slower ball outside off, Gul goes across the line but top-edges that one. It goes miles in the air but doesn't get much distance. The fielder from deep midwicket runs around and takes it comfortably
