12.1

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, 1 wide, wide outside off, a loosener and let's hope that's all it is

12.1

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, no run, much better line immediately, and that's left alone outside off

12.2

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, no run, nearly a yorker and Yousuf creeps that one off his toes and to mid-on

12.3

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, no run, driven to cover and that's a quick single

12.4

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, FOUR, wide outside off and that's driven away strongly through cover

12.5

Johnston to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, gottim! That's a big blow for Pakistan and a big strike for Ireland! A comfortable catch at backward point and there's a sort-of chicken dance celebration for Johnston

Mohammad Yousuf c Porterfield b Johnston 15 (43m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.38

12.6

Johnston to Inzamam-ul-Haq, 1 no ball, no-ball for overstepping

Pakistan 60/4   DT Johnston 2-0-9-1
16.1

Johnston to Imran Nazir, no run, "Hooowawa" shouts the bowler but the tone of his voice trails off - that one pitching outside the line

16.2

Johnston to Imran Nazir, no run, defended forward quietly enough

16.3

Johnston to Imran Nazir, no run, left alone outside off this time

16.4

Johnston to Imran Nazir, 1 run, risky single to backward point, dabbed down, and a winged-in underarm nearly takes the one stump in view - the batsman was well in, though

16.5

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, Johnston pushes the ball through - using every ounce of his energy here - and it flies on a good length to the keeper

16.6

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, 1 wide, just wide again - the extras marching upwards; that's 17 now

16.6

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, lovely shot, got to be happy with that one, a straight drive back past the bowler

Pakistan 66/4   DT Johnston 3-0-15-1
18.1

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, left alone outside off

18.2

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, jaffa just evades the outside edge

18.3

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, 1 wide, down leg

18.3

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, that's better - he adjusts to come down off this time, but has ever so slightly overcompensated and as such the ball can be easily left alone

18.4

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, 1 wide, down leg again - the batsman gamely chases it round but the umpire still reckons it's too far away from him to be a valid delivery

18.4

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, comes forward to prod that one to cover

18.5

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, straight and defended on the back foot

18.6

Johnston to Shoaib Malik, no run, decent line and length to finish the over with defence

Pakistan 68/5   DT Johnston 4-0-17-1
40.1

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, 1 run, a nice shot, waited for that and played it late down to third man

40.2

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, driven into the covers

40.3

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, shapes that one in at the righthander who defends over it

40.4

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, driven to cover where it's stopped safely enough

40.5

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, could have been a run out there, that one dinked down to gully, Morgan unsure whether to run with the ball to the stumps or shy - he chose shy, the right decision, but missed the single stump he had to aim for

40.6

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, defended forward

Pakistan 126/8   DT Johnston 5-0-18-1
42.1

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, no run, cuts in off the seam and there's not much Sami can do with that one

42.2

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, no run, comes forward and nearly yorks himself in trying to work that off the toes

42.3

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, 1 run, good shot, a nice dab off the back foot, cut down behind point

42.4

Johnston to Iftikhar Anjum, 1 leg bye, a huge shout, but the ball was drifting down leg and a quick leg-bye results

42.5

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, no run, worked behind point for some more electric fielding, well cut off

42.6

Johnston to Mohammad Sami, 1 run, Sami comes across his stumps to play that, but pushes a single into the off side now

Pakistan 130/8   DT Johnston 6-0-20-1
44.1

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, outside edge and there's some momentary excitement before that bounces in front of Morgan who dives well to his right

44.2

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, windy whoosh and Gul steps back to have a think about that shot and regroup

44.3

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, left alone outside off stump this time

44.4

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, back of a length and Gul fancies driving that at cover, it goes ever so slightly uppish but no real danger

44.5

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, ooh, that zings in at the batsman and he's tempted to flash at it

44.6

Johnston to Umar Gul, no run, driven straight to cover
