Mohammad Hafeez903824.22304000
2.6 to S Dhawan, on the back foot and he's rapped on the pads! This was fired in on a good length and there was absolutely no spin on offer. Just skids onto him and beats his hectic flick shot to find him in front of leg stump. Or at least that's what Umpire Nigel Llong thinks. HawkEye says it would have clipped. 18/1
36.1 to KD Karthik, he has lobbed it straight into the hands of short fine leg! Another premeditated sweep, but this time he gets a top edge and Ajmal tumbles to his right to pick up a good low catch. Needless stroke to a good length ball on off stump. 155/5
Umar Gul906016.66297220
9.1 to V Kohli, guides it straight into the keeper's hands and Gul is off with his best imitation of Shoaib Akhtar's aeroplane celebration. That is a big wicket and how softly it has fallen. Shortish ball outside off, Kohli tries to guide it away towards third man but gets too fine an edge. Bit more bounce and a touch of seam inward outs Pakistan on top. 56/2
Junaid Khan704406.28204110
Shahid Afridi803804.75222100
Mohammad Talha712223.14292020
19.1 to RG Sharma, almost a collision again as three fielders crowd under this. But Hafeez is the one who pulls off a blinder! This was short and outside off and prompts Rohit to go for a pull. Only he gets a top-edge, another sign of this pitch slowing down, and the ball goes straight up. Hafeez was running back and had to make some ground too, deep square leg was running in and they suffer glancing blows, but not before Hafeez completes a lovely grab. First wicket in ODIs for Talha. 92/3
23.2 to AM Rahane, a wristy little flick but he's picked out midwicket! It was a length ball outside off, should have been punched down the ground for a single but he was moving across and was trying to manufacture a stroke. Chips it in the air and midwicket leaps up and takes it over his head. Sharp catch, simply done. 103/4
Saeed Ajmal1004034.00384100
46.2 to AT Rayudu, makes ample room for himself as he charges Ajmal, but he hasn't got hold of it. It was the doosra from Ajmal, which also pushed the ball away from him and foil his timing. The bat turns in his hand as this gains more height than distance and long-on runs to his left to pouch it safely. 214/6
48.2 to R Ashwin, another doosra as he spots Ashwin racing down the wicket. Tries to slog it over midwicket like Jaddu is so easily doing, but his bat is nowhere near the ball. Akmal waits for just a bit, as if taunting the batsman, so far had he gone down the track, and is stumped. 237/7
48.5 to Mohammed Shami, another wicket as Shami goes for an awful slog! It was flighted and invited the tail-ender for a big hit. Simple top-edge that is pouched at deep midwicket. 237/8

Bhuvneshwar Kumar1005625.60336130
48.3 to Umar Gul, Rahane, you little beauty! He's been India's best fielder and at long-off he's snared a blinder! It was in the slot to be smeared over the top, but Gul has hit it off the bottom and Rahane runs to his left and dives forward to pick up a good, low catch. 235/7
48.6 to Mohammad Talha, caught on the long-off boundary! Bhuvi has taken two in the over and Talha succumbs! It was a length ball on off stump, he made room outside leg to loft him over the top. Gets too much height on this and Jaddu is very composed as he reverse-cups this just inside the boundary. 236/8
Mohammed Shami1004904.90374200
Ravichandran Ashwin9.404434.55322210
10.6 to Sharjeel Khan, carrom ball sneaks through bat and pad off the intended cover drive! The turn on that was vastly impressive, almost like a leggie! Very loose stroke from Sharjeel as his front foot hardly moved and he just went at the ball with his hands. 71/1
43.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, swept away, but this is the carrom ball and deep square leg pulls off a catch diving forward! Hitting against the turn there and he has sort of top-edged it. Bhuvi holds his head under pressure and Kohli leaps up and punches the air in delight.. 200/5
49.1 to Saeed Ajmal, carrom ball and Ajmal's bowled around his legs! Kohli is beside himself, so is Ashwin! This was amazing flight outside leg and lures the tailender into a sweep shot, but this dips on him and turns viciously to take middle stump. 236/9
Ravindra Jadeja1016106.10294200
Amit Mishra1002822.80420120
14.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, short ball and he's pulled it straight to short midwicket! Shehzad is stunned, India have wry smiles on their faces. Possibly his worst delivery in this spell, but those rippers he produced before must have played on the mind of the batsman.. 93/2
22.2 to Umar Akmal, Jaddu has pulled off an amazing skier and Mishi's dream run today continues! Akmal has to walk back after a poor shot! This was tossed up and Akmal could not resist throwing his bat at it. Gets a toe-ender which soars up high into the cover region. Jadeja runs back and takes a blinder over his shoulder. Made it look so simple.. 113/4
