Afzaal Haider705117.28228030
0.3 to Salman Butt, Would you believe it? Hong Kong have got rid of Butt for a duck. After bringing two deliveries in to the batsman, Haider took this one away and Salman stretched across to cover drive but edged it behind. The fielders are over joyed and why not.. 0/1
Irfan Ahmed1005925.90327010
11.4 to Shoaib Malik, Wicket no 2. Malik goes. Malik went back and across to cut a short of length delivery low to left of backward point where it's held smartly. Fab catch that. He had to go low to his left and lunge forward as well.. 67/2
49.2 to Umar Gul, moves outside leg stump and digs out a low full toss, an attempted yorker, to long-on where a tumbling catch is held. 283/9
Zain Abbas605619.33147020
46.2 to Sohail Tanvir, full and on the off stump, driven straight to long-off. But it has been a very good knock from Sohail Tanvir. He stitched together a 100-run partnership with Fawad Alam to get Pakistan out of the hole.. 261/8
Nadeem Ahmed915145.66295100
19.2 to Mohammad Yousuf, Yousuf is gone. Big wicket for the left-arm spinner Nadeem. Flighted delivery outside the off stump and Yousuf top edged the sweep shot to backward square leg. 121/3
21.6 to Younis Khan, Nadeem has another wicket. What a game he is having. Despite being slog swept and paddled for boundaries he kept bowling slow and has been rewarded. He sucked Younis Khan down the track with a flighted delivery before turning it past him and leaving him stranded. 135/4
23.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Watch out for that man Nadeem. Does Misbah in by an arm-ball. Misbah's bat came outside the line, playing for the turn but the ball went on straight. Plumb.. 140/5
25.4 to Shahid Afridi, What a day Nadeem has had. He must be thinking this ODI cricket is too easy. Afridi in the bag now. He flighted it on the middle and leg stump, slow and dipping, Afridi didn't quite lean forward and checked his drive as the ball dipped rapidly on him and couldn't keep it down. Nadeem swooped low to his right-ankle height to pouch it.. 150/6

Umar Gul611903.16273000
Sohail Tanvir612023.33292050
7.4 to Skhawat Ali, banged in short, just outside leg and he top-edged the pull shot straight to fine leg. 28/1
9.2 to CK Kruger, yorked him! It crashes into the base of the middle stump. He tried to bring the bat down but couldn't close the gate in time.. 32/3
Iftikhar Anjum611823.00262010
8.1 to Irfan Ahmed, Strikes the timber first ball. It came in from short of length towards the middle and off stump line and went through the defenses. The bat came down in an angle, he was squared up as well and that combo usually doesn't work out well.. 28/2
12.3 to KH Butt, The middle stump has been pegged back. Another nip backer and he doesn't get behind the line, neither does he bring the bat in line in time. Crash.. 45/4
Shahid Afridi803123.87292030
6.6 to Tabarak Dar, loopy spinning delivery from middle and leg, Tabarak misses a sweep and is hit on the pad in front of middle. 27/0
21.2 to JJ Atkinson, timber! He bowls the flighted legbreak on line with the offstump, Atkinson fails to read the flight and plays all around it as the ball straightens and pegs the offstump back. 76/5
29.2 to Tabarak Dar, loopy spinning delivery from middle and leg, Tabarak misses a sweep and is hit on the pad in front of middle. 102/6
Shoaib Malik803103.87303010
Fawad Alam2.20813.42101010
37.2 to Nadeem Ahmed, Nadeem Ahmed swings a flighted delivery on the legs to deep midwicket. And it's all over. Abbas won't come out to bat and the game is done.. 133/9
Younis Khan10313.0040010
36.6 to Najeeb Amar, it lands full on the middle stump, the batsman doesn't connect with the sweep shot and is struck in front. 133/8
