    25.3 there's the wicket! The punt to go with Jaiswal pays off, as he bowls a short delivery turning away, and Haider looks to cut it hard. Goes low to the man at point, and he takes his gleefully. India celebrate a dismissal that they would have been seeking for a while. New man in, new partnership to build up, and a chance to build up some more dot-ball pressure! 96/3
    2 sliced straight up for square leg! Not good balance at all this time. Short of a length and rising up at his mid-riff. Looks for the pull but he is static. No weight transfer onto either front or back foot and he is cramped as a result, has a hack from underneath. A couple of steps backwards for square leg and an easy catch 9/1
    8.5 leading edge is taken at point! Fahad's troubled stay has come to an end. Just mentioned that Bishnoi isn't shy with that googly, and it is the googly that does it. Not a particularly great delivery, mind you. Short and turning away outside off. But when you get in a shell, the release shots get hard too. He throws his foot into the leg side and his hands at the ball to try and pull firmly. Loses his shape and it is a simple take in the off side 34/2
    41.4 sliced to square leg! Much like he had dismissed Huraira at the start. Short and cramping him at a leg stump line. Looks for the pull, gets in a poor position under it and lobs it harmlessly for Varma 169/8
    30.3 oh, what a mix-up! Length ball, around off, and Qasim taps it towards cover and sets off. Rohail didn't want that one, and the fielder sends the return to the keeper, with both batsmen heading to the same end. Nazir has just pipped Qasim to the non-striker's end, and that saves him. Both batsmen anguished, but one has to go now! 118/4
    34.4 unbelievable take from Saxena at deep square! Diving low to his right after sprinting in. It has been sent upstairs with the soft signal out. No conclusive evidence to say it's not because as he slides, he's got the back of his palm completely under the ball. This was a sweep, struck really hard from a middle stump line. It curved away from Saxena, and it dipped, but he took his steps in and just kept on following it. Dived with both hands out but it is his right hand that has done the work by the end of it. Superb, and possibly match-changing. Haris was looking good 146/5
    37.2 slams off stump! Boy does this guy like bowling yorkers. Gets wide of the crease and lands it a touch in front of the crease. No major swing to speak of, but that length draws Irfan into a drive. And the angle and pace take it past his inside edge. Comprehensively bowled 156/6
    38.1 lbw is given but that looks like a poor decision. It's a googly turning down from a middle stump line. Catches him on the flick in front of leg and looks dead set to go down. The keeper himself is down leg side with his left glove well down. Perhaps the umpire has deemed this out by the big stride across the stumps. He was beaten on the flick there 163/7
    43 keeper gets under that and takes it. Steep short ball up at his throat. Awkwardly fends from underneath, it comes off the high part of the bat and is a straightforward take 172/9
    43.1 Veer gets under that and it will be the end of the Pakistan innings. Another short one from Mishra. Skids on too quickly as Aamir looks to pull. Sticker of the bat and taken at extra cover 172/10
