Cusack to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, 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

Shahzaib Hasan c McCallan b Cusack 23 (25m 19b 3x4 1x6) SR: 121.05

Pakistan 38/1   Kamran Akmal 12* (16b 1x6)   AR Cusack 0.4-0-1-1

McCallan to Shahid Afridi, OUT, 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

Shahid Afridi c Mooney b McCallan 24 (12m 13b 3x4 0x6) SR: 184.61

Pakistan 78/2   Kamran Akmal 27* (26b 2x4 1x6)   WK McCallan 0.3-0-5-1

West to Younis Khan, OUT, 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

Younis Khan b West 10 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Pakistan 102/3   Kamran Akmal 41* (38b 4x4 1x6)   RM West 2.5-0-27-1

Johnston to Kamran Akmal, OUT, 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

Kamran Akmal b Johnston 57 (66m 51b 5x4 1x6) SR: 111.76

Pakistan 133/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 13* (11b 1x4)   DT Johnston 3.5-0-45-1

McCallan to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, 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.

Misbah-ul-Haq c †NJ O'Brien b McCallan 20 (17m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 142.85

Pakistan 141/5   Abdul Razzaq 1* (2b)   WK McCallan 3.4-0-25-2
