Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Mohammad Hafeez, 0.4 ov), 2-22 (Sharjeel Khan, 3.3 ov), 3-32 (Khurram Manzoor, 5.5 ov), 4-35 (Shoaib Malik, 6.6 ov), 5-35 (Umar Akmal, 7.1 ov), 6-42 (Shahid Afridi, 7.6 ov), 7-52 (Wahab Riaz, 11.4 ov), 8-70 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 15.1 ov), 9-83 (Mohammad Sami, 17.2 ov), 10-83 (Mohammad Amir, 17.3 ov)
0.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, he's been caught behind! The previous ball kept a bit low but this one took off sharply from short of a length! Hafeez stayed in his crease and wafted at it, there wasn't enough room outside off and the extra bounce as it slanted across him forced the edge through to Dhoni. 4/1
3.3 to Sharjeel Khan, caught at a wide first slip! Sharjeel stays in his crease and tries to cut one that bounces a bit more. That was a thick edge and it flew quickly to Rahane and he has such safe hands. Bumrah is having a ripping game so far. 22/2
6.6 to Shoaib Malik, Pakistan are crumbling here! Pandya leaps in the air and clicks his heels together like Brett Lee used to do! It was a good length ball on a tight line outside off, Malik chased it with a big drive, trying to hit the ball through cover. There was a thick edge and Dhoni caught it easily. The umpire saw this one. Pakistan have a great pace attack but they need something to defend.. 35/4
17.2 to Mohammad Sami, the short of a length ball gets big on Sami rather quickly and he has no time or space to execute the pull properly, he hits it high in the air towards deep square leg and Raina settles under the catch. Only one wicket left now.. 83/9
17.3 to Mohammad Amir, it's all over, Pandya has taken two in three balls to end the innings and he leaps and clicks his heels again after uprooting Amir's middle stump. Amir stayed in his crease and left a gap between bat and pad as he tried to push the ball on the off side. Pandya nipped the ball back into the left-hander to pierce that gap. 83/10
7.1 to Umar Akmal, Yuvraj strikes with his first ball! This contest is becoming a no-contest! Akmal pushed forward to defend, but played down the wrong line, perhaps expecting the ball to turn. Yuvraj's delivery pitched just outside off and skidded on with the arm from around the wicket, hitting the pad plumb in front of the stumps. India are rampant.. 35/5
11.4 to Wahab Riaz, that's looks close and he's been given! Wahab tried to sweep one that angled into him and missed, that hit the pad right in front, a simple decision for the umpire to make. Pakistan seven down and sinking.. 52/7
15.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, eight down! Poor choice of shot from Sarfraz and he knows it. Jadeja countered Sarfraz's movement outside leg to cut by skidding the ball into the right-hander from a good length. Sarfraz was cramped for room and hurried for time by the pace. He missed and the ball hit middle stump. 70/8

TOTAL15.3 Ov (RR: 5.48, 85 Mins)85/5
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Rohit Sharma, 0.2 ov), 2-2 (Ajinkya Rahane, 0.4 ov), 3-8 (Suresh Raina, 2.4 ov), 4-76 (Virat Kohli, 14.1 ov), 5-76 (Hardik Pandya, 14.3 ov)
0.2 to RG Sharma, Amir's got him this time! Another incredible ball, slanting across Rohit at pace from over the wicket, pitching on a good length around off and bending back into the right-hander, beating the inside edge of the bat to crash into the pad. The umpire takes a while but eventually sends Rohit on his way. Two outstanding balls from Amir. That one is crashing into middle stump. 0/1
0.4 to AM Rahane, another lbw!! Amir is bowling a sensational first over. Rahane knows that the ball is slanting across him from over the wicket, he knows it is going to bend back viciously late, but he can't do anything about it. He tries to defend on the leg side, closing the face a touch, but he misses and gets struck plumb in front. This is bowling of the highest skill. 2/2
2.4 to SK Raina, caught at mid-on! Amir has a third! Raina moved forward and across to the off side to turn the ball on the leg, poor choice of shot when the ball pitches on a good length and seams away from the left-hander. The leading edge lobbed tamely to Wahab. 8/3
14.1 to V Kohli, Kohli's been given lbw and he does not like the decision! Was there an inside edge? He walks off with a wry smile and that's because there was an inside edge. He moved back and across to turn a good length ball through the leg side but was beaten by the nip into him and hit on the front pad. He's played a marvellous innings today, against high quality swing bowling at serious pace.. 76/4
14.3 to HH Pandya, and another one goes! Pandya flashes at a good length ball just outside off and edges straight to first slip, Hafeez juggles the catch not once but twice but holds on in the end!. 76/5
