ICC World Twenty20 - 3rd match, Group D

Pakistan v Scotland

Pakistan won by 51 runs

12.2

Haq to Shahid Afridi, SIX, and what a start! He gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps the offbreak out of the ground, amazing stuff

12.3

Haq to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Afridi waits on the back foot for a short ball and swats it away behind square leg, the fielder in the deep didn't spot it and the ball reaches the boundary

12.4

Haq to Shahid Afridi, SIX, another one, Afridi gets underneath it and lofts it high towards long-on, the fielder on the boundary thinks he has a chance but the ball flies just over his head

12.5

Haq to Shahid Afridi, 3 runs, he attempts to heave it out of the ground again but the outside edge runs down to third man

Pakistan 100/4   Shahid Afridi 19* (4b 1x4 2x6)

13.1

Wright to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, full ball outside off stump, driven on the front foot towards wide long-off

13.2

Wright to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, excellent delivery in the blockhole, Afridi can't do much but dig it out towards the off side for a single

13.4

Wright to Shahid Afridi, OUT, caught! Afridi decided to attempt a cheeky stroke rather than use power, he moved across his stumps to a full toss and played a paddle sweep straight to Haq at short fine leg, it's an easy catch, massive wicket for Scotland

Shahid Afridi c Haq b Wright 22 (5m 7b 1x4 2x6) SR: 314.28

Pakistan 108/5   Shahid Afridi 22 (7b 1x4 2x6)
