18.1

Agarkar to Yasir Arafat, FOUR, too short from Agarkar and that's pulled away to the midwicket boundary, that's the wrong length from Agarkar

Pakistan 117/6   Yasir Arafat 4* (1b 1x4)   AB Agarkar 3.1-0-22-1

18.3

Agarkar to Yasir Arafat, FOUR, length once again from Agarkar and he gets dispatched to the wide long-on boundary once again, that shot had a lot of power

Pakistan 123/6   Yasir Arafat 10* (3b 2x4)   AB Agarkar 3.3-0-28-1
