Saeed Ajmal to White, 3 wides, Oh byes! White moved to the off side and goes for an almighty swing to the on side.. The ball had landed on middle and leg and turned down the leg stump. But Kamran hadn't moved to his left. Perhaps he was unsighted by White.

16.3

Mohammad Amir to White, OUT, Is this the moment of the chase? And would you believe it, it was a full toss that did the trick for Pakistan. A full toss on the off stump line. White's eyes opens up and he tries to smash it through the line to long-off. Perhaps that was the mistake. He couldn't find enough power behind it and couldn't clear long-off. But what an innings this has been from White. Great to watch. Superb under pressure. But he is gone now.
