1.1

Ntini to Tamim Iqbal, 1 wide, way outside the off stump. That Ntini angle takes it even further. Wide called.

1.1

Ntini to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Sweet. Fullish and outside off, Tamim is quick to get on to that front foot and drives through extra cover. Driven on a bent knee. Eye-catching.

1.2

Ntini to Tamim Iqbal, no run, lands outside leg stump, full in length, Tamim, who also has a open-stance, tries to flick it, misses and it thuds in to the pad.

Ntini to Tamim Iqbal, no run, beaten again. Perfect length, on the middle stump line and moves away, Tamim is sucked into the forward prod.

1.6

Ntini to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Dropped by Kemp at second slip. It was full and wide and Tamim couldn't resist the urge. He threw his arm at it, got an thick outside edge and the ball flew fast to right of Kemp, above head-high, who palmed it away.
