1.1

Ntini to Nazimuddin, OUT, loud appeal and given! full and drifting in on the pads, Nazimuddin shuffles just a touch, tries to work it to the on side, is a little late getting his bat down, strikes him in front of leg stump

Nazimuddin lbw b Ntini 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, no run, bang on target in off and middle, short of a length, Aftab uses his feet and works it to the off side

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, no run, Ntini gets this one to jag back in, tries to work it to the on side, hit high on the pads

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, SIX, what a cracker! Aftab charges down the track to a good length ball on off and middle and carts it over deep midwicket

1.5

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, SIX, another cracker! this time its full on middle, Aftab takes just one pace foward and lofts over long-off this time

1.6

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, FOUR, Aftab isnt done yet! full on middle and leg, Aftab gets a stride across and lofts over midwicket, just enough to reach the fence, despairing dive

3.3

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, no run, pushed to the on side

Ntini to Aftab Ahmed, FOUR, low full toss, Aftab steps down the track and scoops the ball off the toe edge of the bat, enough timing for the ball to sail over extra cover

3.6

Ntini to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, short of a length, thudded in on leg stump from wide of the crease, Shakib gets a glove on it and glances it fine past the keeper who dives to his right
