14.4 mayhem! Great drive through the covers as Watts can't get there with the dive, Flannigan then makes a mess of the dive as the look for three, and the throw is errant too. Karim wants the overthrow but Noor Ali has overrun and wasn't looking. Noor Ali then decided he wanted to run four but by this time Iqbal has turned around and threw the ball to Smith who took down the stumps half a second before Noor Ali could get home 67/1
    45 skips down the track and goes for a big drive and only finds the outside edge which goes through to keeper Smith for an easy take 166/3
    42.3 tries to drive a good length ball and knicks behind to Smith who takes a blinding catch to his right 155/2
    63.5 goes for the big shot and scoops the ball high up the air, it's a big boundary that side and Flannigan makes good ground to get underneath the ball, and steadies himself to take the catch in the wind 234/4
    100 flicked off his legs straight to Parker at fine leg, timed too well by the batsman who was unlucky to be out for a well made 93 373/6
    70.2 got him! Straighter ball and Nabi looks to feel the ball in to the leg-side, but the ball jags back and hits him in front of middle stump. Nabi didn't look happy though as he glanced down at his bat, but he's got to go 254/5
    126.5 jaffa nipps away off the seam and takes the top of off, well bowled! 435/10
    115.2 trying to drive and it goes through the gate, well bowled Haq 415/7
    117.1 leading edge which loops up to short cover, well bowled by Haq. 417/8
    120.2 goes for the big shot and misses the ball completely, wicket for drummond. 424/9

    14.3 off-stump out the ground, Hassan gets his first of the day! great bowling. 31/1

    45.4 goes back to one and hits him infront of middle! big wicket! 133/3
    47 yorker which hits him straight on the toe, plum lbw! and it looks like a sore one on the toe for Sheikh. 137/4
    87.3 yorker which hits the batsman on the foot, and up goes the finger from De Silva, well batted! 245/7
    72.5 goes back and wraps him on the pad with a massive appeal and gone! 3 for Hassan! 203/6
    96.2 full toss which hits Smith dead on the toe and no hesitation from umpire Ramage as the finger goes up after a big appeal. Unlucky for Smith who batted well. 272/8
    110.5 goes for a flashing drive outside off stump but knicks it straight to the keeper. A good innings by Parker who fought hard for his team! 316/10
    108.2 yorker which drummond could not keep out as they lose their ninth wicket despite a battling 15 from the captain who led from the front. 311/9
