Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-121 (Saim Ayub, 17.2 ov), 2-146 (Sahibzada Farhan, 21.1 ov), 3-183 (Omair Yousuf, 27.1 ov), 4-183 (Qasim Akram, 27.2 ov), 5-187 (Mohammad Haris, 28.4 ov), 6-313 (Tayyab Tahir, 44.5 ov), 7-322 (Mubasir Khan, 46.1 ov), 8-332 (Mehran Mumtaz, 47.2 ov)
47.2 to Mehran Mumtaz, Rana gets the edge! Full outside off and fired across him, Mumtaz was looking to fetch it to the leg-side but only gets a thin inside edge! Nifty knock comes to an end. 332/8
44.5 to Tayyab Tahir, Good comeback by Hangargekar as he gets the big wicket of Tahir! Very full just outside off and Tahir can't get the elevation as he looks to go down the ground again. Picks out long-on moving to his left. Fantastic, fantastic knock from Tahir comes to an end. 313/6
46.1 to Mubasir Khan, Skied to cover! Hangargekar has got both the set batters with his angle from around the wicket. This was full on off and Mubasir went for the big shot. Got a lot of elevation and none of the distance and the substitute Nitish Reddy settles under it at cover for a simple catch. 322/7
17.2 to Saim Ayub, Suthar gets the breakthrough! Great comeback from him. He was cramped for space and that was too low for the cut and he gets an edge. The ball pops up off Jurel's glove, but he grabs it in the second attempt. Suthar levels with Sindhu as the leading scalper in the competition now with ten wickets!. 121/1
28.4 to Mohammad Haris, Haris runs out of luck. This is an arm ball that skids through from around the stumps, not all that short for Haris to pull, and the moment he was struck on the pad, everyone knew he was a dead duck. Pakistan have collapsed after the platform was set.. 187/5
27.1 to Omair Yousuf, third umpire being called in to check for a catch. This was punched back to Riyan who moved swiftly to his right and dived fully forward to catch the ball. But he didn't show any excitement, presumably because it was a bump ball. The ball was dipping on him and Riyan did well to get both hands to it. And guess what? The third umpire thinks there's enough evidence to prove it wasn't a bump ball. India have a big wicket. What a moment. Yousuf can't believe his luck.. 183/3
27.2 to Qasim Akram, there's another! Two in two and India have come storming back. Riyan will look back at this and perhaps label it a nothing ball. It was a half-tracker, Akram rocked back and pulled it with all his might but found the lone man at deep midwicket.. 183/4

Fall of wickets: 1-64 (Sai Sudharsan, 8.3 ov), 2-80 (Nikin Jose, 12.2 ov), 3-132 (Abhishek Sharma, 19.5 ov), 4-157 (Nishant Sindhu, 24.4 ov), 5-159 (Yash Dhull, 25.3 ov), 6-179 (Dhruv Jurel, 28.5 ov), 7-188 (Riyan Parag, 30.6 ov), 8-194 (Harshit Rana, 31.2 ov), 9-212 (Rajvardhan Hangargekar, 36.6 ov), 10-224 (Yuvrajsinh Dodiya, 39.6 ov)
8.3 to B Sai Sudharsan, the short ball has done the trick. Sai Sudharsan is done in for pace as he tries to pull, the ball gets big on him and lobs off a top-edge to the keeper who makes no mistake. Arshad Iqbal is just about saved by the skin of his teeth, dangerously close to being a no-ball that. But hey, it's pace that does the trick for Pakistan and it's a massive wicket. India A were well on their way.. 64/1
36.6 to RS Hangargekar, Iqbal cleans Hangargekar up! That's a beautiful delivery, full outside off and angling in. Goes through the gate. They are checking for the no-ball though. It's a close call again. And the decision stands again as Hangargekar walks back. Hangargekar was expecting a shorter delivery but the setup worked wonders for Iqbal. 212/9
24.4 to N Sindhu, he has picked out long-off. The big shot was coming. Mubasir dares the batter to loft him if he wants, Sindhu goes through with the shot even though he didn't get to the pitch, the timing was off and Tayyab Tahir took an excellent catch running to his left from long-off. India in deep, deep trouble now.. 157/4
28.5 to DC Jurel, straight down long-off's throat. Jurel wanted to go down town but couldn't quick pick his spot because the ball spun a tad more to skew off the outer part of the bat. Pakistan believe they're in pole position to win the ACC Emerging Nations Cup.. 179/6
30.6 to R Parag, you really can't do much about that. This is a cracker-jack of a delivery. Drift, grip, turn and bounce to beat Parag's feeble forward push. Squared up completely. Terrific delivery, a dream delivery for a left-arm spinner. Mehran is pumped.. 188/7
12.2 to Nikin Jose, Nikin Jose has been given out! Waseem brought out the celebrappeal. Jose is confused and seems to suggest that came off his hips and not the bat, but no DRS here so he will have to walk. Replays seem to confirm that it did indeed come off his hip. It was another back of length delivery and Jose went for another pull shot, but the ball snuck under the bat. Umpire must have thought he got an inside edge on that. 80/2
39.6 to Y Dodiya, And that's done! Pakistan are back-to-back champions! Yorker crashes into off-stump and Wasim Jr has completed a comprehensive win for Pakistan, like he did their innings. Players run off in celebration as fireworks go off! The players line up and get down to pray before going back to sharing hugs. The coach, Mohammad Masroor gets lifted by some of the players.. 224/10
19.5 to Abhishek Sharma, And Muqeem comes back with a wicket! It's a great catch at point by that man Tayyab Tahir! That was a nothing ball, really. Short outside off and Abhishek went for the cut. Didn't connect cleanly and it was dying on Tahir, but he manages to take a low catch falling to his right and the well set Abhishek walks back for a well made 61 off 51. 132/3
25.3 to YV Dhull, the skipper is gone now. Sees the flight, decides he'll take him on against the turn but ends up dragging it to wide long-on, towards the longest boundary, where the fielder takes a very simple catch. India are collapsing rather quickly. Dhull was set and needed to be there from India's point of view.. 159/5
31.2 to Harshit Rana, Muqeem gets Harshit Rana! This time the wrong'un does the trick. Pitched up just outside off, Harshit went for the big shot but can only edge it to the slip. Muqeem with a finger-on-the-mouth celebration to send Harshit off. 194/8
