That's it Pakistan win by 4 wickets. Razzaq played extremely well for his unbeaten 41 runs. It was the right move to send Akmal down the order. It was a close contest. It was a difficult track to bat. Pakistan held their nerves to win this. They now lead the series 1-0. The Man of the match is Abdul Razzaq.
