Umar Gul803023.75322100
4.4 to Noor Ali Zadran, the slowness of the pitch got him, he went right across his stumps to defend but the ball came on a bit slower than he would have expected, he ends up spooning it back to Gul, the ball really stopped on Noor there. 23/1
47.1 to Samiullah Shinwari, Shenwari tries to get very innovative and moves right across his stumps and tries to paddle a full toss wide of short fine leg, the ball clips his pads in front of the stumps, he appears to show his bat to the umpire but Taufel was convinced the ball snuck past the bat. 193/9
Wahab Riaz9.313723.89385000
46.5 to Dawlat Zadran, the middle stump goes for a toss! Zadran stands wide outside the leg stump to give himself room, Riaz gets some reverse swing and beats the bat, the stump goes back a few yards. 193/8
48.3 to Amir Hamza, this time Akmal gets his man! Hotak chips down the track and gets an outside edge on the drive, Akmal takes the low catch and basically pleads with the umpire but he didn't have to wait too long for the umpire's decision. 195/10
Saeed Ajmal1013203.20452200
Shahid Afridi1003653.60434120
9.2 to Mohammad Shahzad, terrific catch! Shahzad tries to capitalise on the width outside off and carve it over the off side, he was well forward and the ball travelled quickly but Shafiq timed his leap at point and plucked it, excellent reflexes. 54/2
13.2 to Nawroz Mangal, poor shot from the captain, Afridi floated it on the stumps and Mangal made himself room to loft down the ground, the ball kept low and thudded onto the middle stump, Mangal had exposed the woodwork and after he was bowled he shadow-practiced the shot he intended to play. 71/3
15.5 to Karim Sadiq, sharp catch by Umar Akmal! Afridi fired that a bit quicker outside off, Sadiq tries to drove but gets a thin outside edge and the ball sits nicely behind Akmal's gloves, he didn't have much time to react. 88/4
21.3 to Gulbadin Naib, Afridi gets his fourth! Tossed up on off and it's a googly, Naib is forward and the ball strikes him in front of middle, Taufel raises the finger. 101/5
41.2 to Mirwais Ashraf, yet another five-for for Afridi! The sharp googly is too good for Ashraf, jags back in from wide outside off and catches Ashraf flush on the pad in front of the stumps. 165/7

Dawlat Zadran923824.22386021
3.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, played on! Thus time Dawlat brings the ball back in and cramps him for room, the ball was a touch quicker too and Hafeez was trapped at the crease trying to fend it off, inside edge onto the stumps. 9/1
9.5 to Asad Shafiq, plays across the line! Dawlat gets the ball to swing in late, Shafiq gets across his stumps and tries to work it across the line, hits him in front of off stump, Taufel's convinced. 42/2

21.4 to Imran Farhat, soft dismissal! Shenwari dropped the leg break a bit short, Farhat rocked back, showed the full face of the bat and spooned it back to the bowler, easy catch. 99/3
