36.1

37.5

KJ O'Brien to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, defended forward this time

37.6

KJ O'Brien to Iftikhar Anjum, 1 run, well worked to mid-on there and Johnston looks like he's in the wars there as he dives on that one and winces, but he's certainly still fighting hard with his troops

38.4

Langford-Smith to Iftikhar Anjum, 1 run, short, and a wayward throw back in from the pull shot as that goes into midwicket - a direct hit at the non-striker's end would have had the batsman a long way out

39.1

McCallan to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, defended first up

39.2

McCallan to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, oh, a good shout for lbw, sweeping. That seemed to be going on to hit off and the umpire thought about it for a long time, before giving the batsman the benefit

39.3
