1.2

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Hafeez has come out positive today. The only two wide deliveries last over went for runs, and he went after this full and wide delivery. Calculated risk. Didn't hold back at all. The thick edge clears point with ease

2.5

Kulasekara to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, big inswinger, headed for off and middle, beats the bat, hits the pad, Kula thinks he in with a shout, but the big stride has got his pad outside the line

2.6

Kulasekara to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, this is the other one, holding its line outside off, beats the bat, and bounces well in front of Prasanna

Pakistan 14/0   Mohammad Hafeez 13* (16b 2x4)

4.1

Kulasekara to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, inswinger, nicely covered, and played late with a slightly closed face to guide it wide of mid-on

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of a length, outside off, defended

5.4

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of a length, outside off, kicks a little, kept down by Hafeez

5.5

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short, not too wide, Hafeez is cramped on the cut, gets a bottom edge that lands safely away from the stumps

5.6

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, inswinger, but a juicy half-volley at mid-120s, and Hafeez off-drives it between the bowler and mid-off for four

Pakistan 31/0   Mohammad Hafeez 22* (23b 4x4)

7.1

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, pushes at a length ball outside off, beaten as the ball holds its line

7.2

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, short of a length, middle and leg, Hafeez looks to work this to leg, gets a soft leading edge that falls short of gully

7.3

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, this is angling in too far and hits his pad outside the line of leg

7.4

Perera to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Timber. Pererea breaks through the bat-pad gap. Two deliveries earlier this over had held their line. That perhaps is the reason why Hafeez pushed away from the body. The ball was short of a length, and seamed in this time. Beats the inside edge of the bat, and kisses the pad on the way to the top of off

Mohammad Hafeez b Perera 22 (33m 27b 4x4 0x6) SR: 81.48

Pakistan 35/1   Mohammad Hafeez 22 (27b 4x4)
