PNG went to drinks at 100/2, on course to chase down 270. The drinks break was followed by the dismissals of the set batsmen. The spinners applied the brakes on the run-rate and the batsmen fell to bad shots

Babar Hayat is the man of the match and thanks for joining us today. Please do join us back on sunday. Till then, good night from all of us here
