Umar Gul to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Gone! That's the big one for Pakistan. Yuvraj, who was a bit quiet against the spinners targets Umar Gul. Yuvraj goes for a big pull to a ball that's banged in about halfway down the pitcth. The ball gets a bit big on the batsman and takes the top edge and goes straight up in the air. Gul takes no chances, calls the catch his own and settles comfortably under it. That's a huge wicket for Pakistan in this big final
