0.6 gives the bowler the charge, swings big and connects with thin air. And Sarfraz whips the bails off in the blink of an eye. All Denly can do is turn around and watch the stumps being broken. Full marks to the bowler for flighting it up just enough to pull the batsman out of his crease and then undoing him with dip and drift and turn. He's getting some sharp spin here tonight 2/1
    1.3 has he there? Nope, not quite big enough. He had to go for this after missing a few deliveries. And it's a failure for Afridi - not what the crowd here tonight paid to see. Just doesn't manage to get entirely underneath this fuller one and skies it to mid-off after not finding the middle of the bat 2/2
    5.6 ah, he's holed out to deep backward square leg here. Ingram gets down on one knee and tries to slog this one but the ball goes behind square off the inside of the bat as it turns into him. They need to force the pace here but they're losing wickets off every attempt to do so 32/3
    10.1 has he been caught here? That's a brilliant catch. But the umpires are not sure. They refer this upstairs. Soft signal is not out. Anwar Ali at long-on dives forward and takes it inches away from the ground, hence the uncertainty. And seems like he's taken it clean. That's a beautiful catch. Comes running forward and bends extremely low to take it on the run inches away from the ground. Coming to the ball, it was short of a length and he dragged the pull to long-on 55/5
    6.2 is there a nick? Yes, a feather from Bopara. Karachi sliding all too rapidly here. Bopara comes down the track without waiting to suss out the length - it's just short of good length. The ball jags away a tad off the seam and he ends up nicking off to the keeper. A catch Sarfraz would take with his eyes shut 33/4
    15.3 make that another wicket. One ball after the six, the bowler hits back. That kind of night for Karachi. Every time they've looked to get a move on, they've been stalled. Now it's too much for too late. Short of a length delivery, Imad backs away and tries to slap but gets tucked up and chips it to mid-off 89/6
    not out
    17.3 slightly back of a length and he comes down the track. Obviously fails to get to the pitch as a result. A slower one as well and he horribly mistimes and drags a pull to long-on who moves a few steps to his left and snaffles it reverse-cupped 100/7
    17.5 taken at deep midwicket. A fuller one, angling into him, slower again and he tries to slog it out of here. The pace off means the shot doesn't have enough for the ball to carry all the way 101/8
