Brathwaite to Shoaib Malik, SIX runs, back of a length and outside off, Malik sizes it up and clobbers it across the line. Puts it into the second tier beyond midwicket

Holder to Babar Azam, FOUR runs, shuffles across off, gets inside the line of a back of a length ball. Picks it up and pulls it beautifully over short fine leg
13.3

Pollard to Babar Azam, FOUR runs, wide of the crease, and angled in on off, but the length is full. Babar gets under it and lofts it to the right of Rovman at long-on. Rovman was left wrong-footed and the ball winds the race
12.5

Williams to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs, high short ball outside off, pulled away to the left of deep midwicket. Simmons looks to boot the ball back in and makes a mess of it. The ball rolls away to the boundary

Narine to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs, short and kicks up outside off, Malik is equal to it. He leans back and late-cuts it away to the right of slip. Deftly done

Badree to Kamran Akmal, SIX runs, floated up on off, Kamran clears his front leg and hoists it over mid-off. Classy Is this 2005 all over again?

Holder to Babar Azam, FOUR runs, hip-high short ball outside off, slower offcutter, Babar rocks back, picks it, and swats it away to the midwicket fence. That was stylish as well

Holder to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR runs, whoa. Shot. Shehzad runs down the track. Shorter on off, he swats it imperiously to the midwicket boundary. Nobody moved

Narine to Kamran Akmal, FOUR runs, width and he's smashed that into the point boundary. Too short as well, he picked the length early and put that away without much fuss

Holder to Kamran Akmal, FOUR runs, sliced between cover and point. Didn't get hold of it but he was hitting it towards the shorter boundary. That should get him going.
0.6

Badree to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR runs, hint of width, he rocks back and opens the bat face late to steer this between point and short third man. The distance between the advertising triangle and the hoarding is far too less. Rovman Powell smashes into the board and causes it much damage. Good to know he isn't hurt though.
