    0.4 Hafeez has got the big wicket, he's off on a celebratory run after getting Tamim lbw, that was slightly full from Hafeez pitching around middle, Tamim opted to play that off the back foot instead on coming forward, the ball slides on and strikes the pads, probably would have taken leg stump, height wasn't a problem there, Hafeez can't do a thing wrong these days 0/1
    12.2 Afridi joins the party, again there's a lot of bounce for the bowler, again the batsman goes for the cut, again there's a top-edge, slices it to Shoaib Malik at backward point, and that's the fourth wicket, Nafees has had a horrid time today, looked completely out of place 29/4
    5.4 another one goes! After that drive, Naeem couldn't tempt poking at a full delivery outside off, just moved away a hint and took the outside edge, Misbah stood firm at slip, watching it closely and took a good, low catch 6/2
    11.5 Mushfiqur finally falls to the cut, that one from Shoaib bounces extra, it was wide outside off, Mushfiqur throws the bat at it but can only edge it to the keeper, he is extremely disappointed with that stroke, trudges off looking skywards 29/3
    26.2 how many batsmen will get out playing the cut? it was well outside off, Shakib stretches to reach that and slaps it limply to point, not the finest of strokes that, and once again that man Afridi makes an instant impact 71/7
    12.5 this match is heading for a very early finish, plenty of spin for Afridi, length ball turning away, Mahmudullah stretches forward to defend, the outside edge results, easy for Sarfraz, five down now 31/5
    23.4 the end of Nasir, just when the partnership seemed to be steadying Bangladesh, a short ball that Nasir wanted to mow over midwicket, it strikes low on the bat and balloons towards short fine leg, the keeper calls early for it and settles under it, there's no Kamran Akmal moment either as Sarfraz calmly collects the skier 67/6
    28.1 and another one for Afridi, Reza is lbw, he was stretching forward to defend that one down the track, it spins past the inside edge and strikes the pads, that looked to be heading for legstump, the umpire thought so as well, Bangladesh are falling like nine pins, and Afridi hasn't even brought out his star-man celebration yet, perhaps if he gets a fifth 74/9
    27.2 this is all too easy for Pakistan, Razzak closes the face of the bat too early, gets an edge to a delivery that's pitching around off, the edge flies to left of Younis, who clasps that one easily, eight down now and the crowd's mood further worsens 74/8
    30.3 there's the five-for, Afridi doesn't bother celebrating, this one slides on, batsman looks to defend, inside-edges it on to his pad, the ball pops up for the keeper to come round in front of the stumps and collect that, Bangladesh rolled over for 91 91/10

    10.6 caught this time. Nasir has been moved out of first slip and Nafees shows him how to hold a catch as Hafeez guides it straight to him while trying to find third man with a late cut 42/2
    9.2 probably too short to cut that one on off stump. Farhat drags it down into his timbers and Bangladesh have at least something from this opening 10 overs 36/1
    11.3 is there life in this match yet? Younis Khan is gone now, that was a poor decision from the umpire, the ball slides down the leg side, past the pads, and doesn't touch anything on its way to the keeper, bounces off Mushfiqur's pads and pops up as a catch, a loud appeal, umpire sends an unlucky Younis on his way 42/3
    12.3 make that four, the Mirpur crowd is howling in delight now, Sarfraz departs as he attempts to hook a bouncer, a bit of a top edge and the ball loops in front of square leg, where Shakib collects the chance, Bangladesh are pumped up 44/4
    not out
    17.4 and another one, Umar Akmal is gone, Shakib's arm ball goes straight on with the angle to take the top of off, Umar was looking to cut that, expecting that the usual turn that would give him the room to play that stroke, does Afridi need to carry Pakistan with the bat as well? 63/5
