10.1

Shahid Afridi to Mohammad Ashraful, 2 runs, squeezed down to third-man

10.2

Shahid Afridi to Mohammad Ashraful, 2 runs, lofted inside out and over cover but it's a gently shot and won't go all the way

10.3

Shahid Afridi to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, flatter, quicker, on the stumps, Ashraful plays around his front pad and fails to make contact. That's always dangerous. Afridi appeals strongly and the finger goes up. That pitched in line and wasn't turning much at all. Can't complain about the decision
