    2.2 Ali Evans strikes! Banged in short and cramps Asif for room. He goes for a pull of his own, hit high on the bat and the ball balloons to deep square leg. Asif was hoodwinked by the change of pace.. 22/1
    8.3 Amjad holes out to deep backward square leg. Pushed through, Amjad folds low in the crease for a slog-sweep. He hit that reasonably well but picked out Munsey 58/4
    4.3 Shahzad waved his bat around like a sword and falls on it. He hunts for a leg-side heave but ends up getting a leading edge to the covers. Munsey settles under it 38/2
    7.1 Leask takes down Shaiman with his first ball. He gives this ample air outside off, Shaiman has a crack at it. He does not middle it, carving it to deep cover, where Davey redeems himself right away 51/3
    10.3 a direct hit at the non-strikers' end. On a length and outside off, flayed to mid-off. There is a brief communication breakdown, Patil is sent back. MacLeod moves to his left, gathers the ball and fires an accurate, direct throw. Patil can't slide his bat in time. His bat was outside the crease by the time the bails were dislodged. UAE mired at 66 for 6; superb work from MacLeod 66/6
    9.4 UAE keep finding the fielders. Tossed up and outside off, Shakoor loads up for a slog sweep and drags it to deep midwicket. Munsey collects another catch 61/5
    11.3 caught on the edge of the boundary at long-on. Fuller and outside off, Umair sinks to one knee, aims for a encore as he looks to launch it out of the park, this time with a slog-sweep. He does not summon enough power/timing behind it and holes out to MacLeod, who reverse cups his hands around it 75/7
    16.6 slides on outside off with the arm, non-turning ball. This is too full to cut, yet Javed carries on with the shot and edges it to Cross 107/9
    12.2 UAE are sliding quickly. A big appeal for caught behind and the forefinger goes up. Watt gives this loads of air outside off and gets it to weave away. Tauqir does not account for the turn. He has a loose waft at it, plays inside the line and nicks it to Cross 80/8
    not out
    18.1 UAE have been rolled over for 109. Berrington throws the stumps down at the non-strikers'. Good length and around off, tapped towards point. Big, big, mix up between the wickets. Guruge the last man out for 1 109/10
