Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Gulam Bodi, 4.5 ov), 2-30 (Morris Ouma, 5.6 ov), 3-40 (Tanmay Mishra, 7.6 ov), 4-43 (Alex Obanda, 9.2 ov), 5-51 (Keith Dabengwa, 10.5 ov), 6-65 (Nehemiah Odhiambo, 14.6 ov), 7-101 (Loots Bosman, 18.4 ov), 8-107 (Thandi Tshabalala, 19.3 ov)
4.5 to GH Bodi, skier, way way into the stars but there's just height and no range, good length ball from Sreesanth and Bodi goes for the loft but he gets under it and manages to only sky it high in the air. Afridi gets under it and calmly pouches the catch at mid-off. Sreesanth strikes the first blow. 21/1
18.4 to LE Bosman, got 'em, short of a length and Bosman goes for the pull but there's an inside edge there and is caught behind, Bosman walks even before the umpire upholds the appeal. Sreesanth is so pumped up that he gets within arms length of Bosman and gives him a mighty stare. As I said earlier ... aggressive say some, highly comical say others. And yes .. this isn't the World Cup final but the Afro-Asia Cup.. 101/7
5.6 to MA Ouma, that's edged and taken, he set it up really well, Mortaza, after a series of short deliveries, he digs one in back of a length outside off and moves it away off the pitch, Ouma jabs at it unconvincingly and manages a thick edge which Akmal grabs with glee. Well done Mahrafe 'Norail Express' Mortaza.. 30/2
7.6 to T Mishra, down the track again and he pays for the rush of blood, tries to smash a good length ball over the covers but only gets a thick edge that flies to third man. Razzaq snaps up a simple catch on the boundary. 40/3
10.5 to KM Dabengwa, beauty of a leg-cutter from Maharoof, short of a length and moving in, Dabengwa is beaten comprehensively and gets an inside edge that squirts between bat and pad. Akmal dives to the leg side and pulls off a smart take. Africa plunge into further trouble. 51/5
14.6 to NN Odhiambo, swoosh, 100kph that time, good length ball and straight, Odhiambo makes a big mistake by rocking back and trying to cut and is castled. Too quick from Razzaq. Ripper. 65/6
19.3 to MS Tshabalala, timber, Tshabalala tries the slog sweep but that's a legbreak that takes the inside edge and rattles off stump.. 107/8

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Imran Nazir, 1.4 ov), 2-29 (Kamran Akmal, 4.3 ov), 3-34 (Mohammad Ashraful, 5.4 ov), 4-61 (Tamim Iqbal, 9.5 ov)
4.3 to Kamran Akmal, Morkel has his man! Short of a good length outside the off stump, it seams away from Akmal who fends at it on the back foot, the ball takes a thin edge through to Ouma who takes an easy catch. 29/2
1.4 to Imran Nazir, got 'em, Nazir backs away and slashes wildly, can't get the timing right and skies it to mid-off, Mupariwa comes around and takes a simple catch to his right. Nazir was living by the sword, in the end he perished by it. 13/1
5.4 to Mohammad Ashraful, full length ball on off stump, he thinks about driving it but checks his shot at the last moment, the ball lobs tamely to mid off and Asia are in a little trouble now. 34/3
9.5 to Tamim Iqbal, Tshabalala gets his man, Tamim charged down the track for a wild slog to a tossed up delivery, he wasn't to the pitch of the ball and got beaten as the it turned away from him, Ouma had the bails off in a flash and the third umpire was not needed to send Tamim back to the dug out. 61/4
