    7.6 nicely done. Draws him forward and finds the pad as he tries to flick it. Appeal for leg before turned down, but Rohit asks for the review immediately. Nicely flighted outside off, Imam comes forward and plays across the line, the ball spins past the inside edge, but has it spun too much? Nope, just about enough to hit the top of middle and leg. Great review 24/1
    14.3 he's sprawled all over the pitch and he's also out lbw! Fakhar loses his balance as he strides out, tempted by yet another loopy treat from Kuldeep. The studs on his front foot fail him and he takes a proper tumble, and more or less falls on top of the ball. All in front of middle and leg stump - which gives umpire Tucker the leeway to get that forefinger up. Replays by the way indicate Fakhar managed a glove on the ball before it hit his body and had he reviewed, he might have saved himself. 55/2
    15.5 Babar's run-out and it's the price of a little bit of greed from his captain. Sarfraz taps an innocuous delivery away to point and looks for a single. He takes a few steps out, which then signals Babar to get his skates on. Eventually, Sarfraz realises he'll never make it and sends his young gun back. But the fielder Chahal has spotted the opportunity and sends a stinging throw to Jadeja, who does the rest 58/3
    38.5 that's tame! He's been slowly amping up his strike-rate, calmly going for the big shots, making India fret, making Pakistan hope. And he throws it all away with a little poke to cover. The wristspinner works his magic and Sarfraz walks away, throwing his head back in disgust. He was looking to clear the infield but just doesn't get enough elevation 165/4
    43.4 has he nudged that away to the keeper? Yup, he has. Malik walks off. No review. Huge, huge wicket. At a crucial juncture. Not quite the end Malik would've imagined. A length ball, angled into Malik, who looks for a nice little help-along to fine leg, finds the edge instead, and Dhoni gets down to his left behind the stumps to snaffle it 203/5
    44.5 swings wildly for a big slog, misses the line completely. Zero room offered by Chahal, dead straight and accurate on middle, it's the googly, so doesn't give him the room he needs to connect with that shot and flattens middle stump. They check for the front foot, he's landed it just inside. 50th ODI wicket for Chahal 211/6
    49.3 top-class bowling at the death. He's so accurate. Shadab stays leg side and desperately swings and swings hard. Gets an inside edge onto the back pad before it deflects onto the stumps. Have India choked Pakistan out of this game here? 234/7
