View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Johnston 57 66 51 5 1 111.76
16.5 The yorkers keep coming relentlessly and this has knocked out the middle stump. Akmal had to go for the big hit - this is the 17th over - and he charged down the track but the ball squeezed under the bat and cleaned up the middle stick 133/4
View dismissal Shahzaib Hasan c McCallan b Cusack 23 25 19 3 1 121.05
5.4 holes out to mid-off. That penchant to drive on the up, using his bottom-hand has done him in. It was a length delivery coming in around the off stump, Shahzaib leaned forward and tried to scoop it on-the-up but couldn't clear mid-off 38/1
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Mooney b McCallan 24 12 13 3 0 184.61
9.3 But he is gone now. He was lured by the flight and moved down the track but the ball was slower than he thought and dipped on him quickly. He had to wait a touch for it to arrive but could only hit it straight to long-on 78/2
View dismissal Younis Khan* b West 10 10 8 1 0 125.00
12.5 lovely delivery to clean up Younis. It was flighted a bit more, it drifted towards leg and middle, luring Younis to go for the slog sweep but the ball dipped and it went past the swing of the bat to crash into the stumps 102/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c †NJ O'Brien b McCallan 20 17 14 1 1 142.85
17.4 oh a lovey delivery to remove Misbah. He really really slowed up the pace on that and Misbah was way early into the slog sweep and ended up lobbing it up on the off side and Niall rushed to his right to take it. What a lovely change of pace. 141/5

View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 40 52 36 2 0 111.11
13.1 The Irish captain falls. He stretched forward to drive but ended up chipping it to straight to extra cover. Gone! Ajmal strikes. 87/3
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c & b Mohammad Amir 7 8 10 1 0 70.00
2.3 The short-pitched stuff has worked for Aamer. The third one in a row and Niall O'Brien top-edged his attempted pull and Aamer himself came under the ball. 13/1
View dismissal PR Stirling b Shahid Afridi 17 17 16 2 0 106.25
6.6 Afridi takes out the youngster. Stirling, who looked very good in his brief stay, went for the slog sweep but missed it completely. Still, a very promising knock, good for the future of Ireland cricket. 42/2
View dismissal KJ O'Brien st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 26 42 30 1 0 86.66
17.4 Stumped. It was the top spinner and it bounced past the attempted lofted hit. Kevin O'Brien had dragged the back foot out of the crease and before he could slide it back in, Akmal had whipped the bails off. 108/6
View dismissal JF Mooney c Abdul Razzaq b Saeed Ajmal 2 8 8 0 0 25.00
15.4 Mooney holes out Razzaq who makes no mistake this time. Mooney went down the track and chipped it straight to long-on 93/4
View dismissal DT Johnston b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
16.2 Not quite the Gul yorker that we have come to known and love, but it will do the trick. The off stump has gone for a jog. It was full in length, it was straight and it went past the attempted big hit over the off-side. Johnston was looking to move outside leg stump but didn't connect. 99/5
View dismissal AR White b Umar Gul 5 4 7 0 0 71.42
18.1 The end is nigh. Gul shoves Ireland towards the end. The Gul Yorker has taken out the off stump. White , looking for the big hit, didn't have a chance against that. Not quite at the blockhole but it would do the job. 110/8
View dismissal AR Cusack st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
17.6 Another stumping by Akmal. Rudi doesn't even refer this upstairs, gives the batsman slow death from square leg. The doosra broke past the airy swing of the bat and Akmal did the rest. 110/7
WK McCallan not out 2 11 6 0 0 33.33
View dismissal RM West run out (Umar Gul) 1 1 1 0 0 100.00
18.3 Umar Gul to McCallan, And West is run out now. It was pushed towards the off stump and there was confusion between the two batsmen. Yes and then no, from the striker. Too late for West to get back in time. Gul had picked the ball and fired in a direct hit at the non-striker's end 111/9
