Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, (no ball) FOUR, overstepping and that's driven nicely through mid-off for the first boundary

Pakistan 7/0   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (1b 1x4)   D Langford-Smith 0.1-0-7-0

Rankin to Imran Nazir, FOUR, ah! A flashingly thick outside edge just evades the outstretched fingertips of a leaping second slip

Pakistan 11/1   Imran Nazir 5* (4b 1x4)   WB Rankin 0.3-0-4-0

Rankin to Mohammad Yousuf, FOUR, effortless from Yousuf, one of his signature shots that, a mere flick of an extra cover drive and that's the tension immediately undone

Pakistan 20/2   Mohammad Yousuf 4* (3b 1x4)   WB Rankin 2-0-11-1

Rankin to Imran Nazir, FOUR, flashes at that off the back foot, fishing high in the air, and so high and away from the body it's a wide

Pakistan 35/2   Imran Nazir 17* (32b 2x4)   WB Rankin 3.4-0-19-1

Langford-Smith to Imran Nazir, FOUR, a mere flick of the wrist through midwicket brings up Pakistan's fifty

Pakistan 50/2   Imran Nazir 22* (38b 3x4)   D Langford-Smith 6-0-26-1

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

Pakistan 56/2   Mohammad Yousuf 15* (30b 2x4)   DT Johnston 0.4-0-5-0

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

Pakistan 66/4   Shoaib Malik 5* (16b 1x4)   DT Johnston 3-0-15-1

KJ O'Brien to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, first misfield of the day - a nice off-drive dinked with great timing past the fielder, who gets half a hand on it but not enough to take the pace off it

Pakistan 72/5   Shoaib Malik 9* (24b 2x4)   KJ O'Brien 0.2-0-4-0

KJ O'Brien to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, a rare attacking shot... and indeed that's a boundary... good shot deliberately send high over the slips and on

Pakistan 79/6   Kamran Akmal 7* (26b 1x4)   KJ O'Brien 2.5-0-9-1

KJ O'Brien to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, down on one knee and strikes that hard towards cover and it goes over the top and all the way

Pakistan 85/6   Kamran Akmal 11* (29b 2x4)   KJ O'Brien 3.2-0-13-1

KJ O'Brien to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, good shot - hit easily round down through fine leg

Pakistan 91/6   Kamran Akmal 17* (32b 3x4)   KJ O'Brien 3.5-0-19-1

McCallan to Kamran Akmal, FOUR, delicately played, deliberately uppish through the vacant slip area and that brings up the hundred for Pakistan

Pakistan 100/6   Kamran Akmal 25* (41b 4x4)   WK McCallan 1.3-0-7-0

KJ O'Brien to Mohammad Sami, FOUR, shot! Hit straight and sweet right over mid-on and that's a welcome four for Pakistan

Pakistan 120/8   Mohammad Sami 7* (19b 1x4)   KJ O'Brien 4.5-0-25-1
