Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Rohan Mustafa, 1.6 ov), 2-5 (Muhammad Kaleem, 2.4 ov), 3-12 (Mohammad Shahzad, 3.6 ov), 4-41 (Usman Mushtaq, 10.6 ov), 5-72 (Shaiman Anwar, 13.4 ov), 6-118 (Muhammad Usman, 18.6 ov)
2.4 to Muhammad Kaleem, knocks the off stump! This one swings in from just about short of length from outside off, Kaleem barel moves his feet and doesn't account for the swing, leaves a gap between bat and pad while defending and the ball sneaks through to hit top of off. 5/2
18.6 to Muhammad Usman, he makes room again, backs away too, it's a yorker right on the toes outside leg, he misses and the ball deflects off the boot to the leg side. Usman would have survived had the ball missed the boot. 118/6
1.6 to Rohan Mustafa, first wicket! Afridi waits at mid-off for the catch as if he's watching a balloon in the sky. Doesn't move at all and pouches it easily. Mustafa charged down the track but the ball came in and rose on him from short of length, he slogged and got a top edge to mid-off. 5/1
3.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, 138, has the angle and the bounce gets the top part of Shahzad's bat on its way to the keeper for an easy catch. 12/3
13.4 to Shaiman Anwar, Irfan gets the outside edge, gets the big wicket! Anwar made room but there was hardly any width, short of length delivery around middle made him poke and he only got an edge. 72/5
10.6 to Usman Mushtaq, top-edge this time and it's taken easily at short fine leg. It was fullish towards the leg side, he tried to sweep, got an edge to pop it to Nawaz. 41/4

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Sharjeel Khan, 1.3 ov), 2-11 (Khurram Manzoor, 1.5 ov), 3-17 (Mohammad Hafeez, 3.1 ov)
1.3 to Sharjeel Khan, he's given him lbw! The umpire took ages and it looked like he was going to give it not out and Sharjeel was taken by surprise last minute. Amjad pitched the ball around middle and brought it back into the left-hander, Sharjeel was caught on the crease as he brought his bat down with a closed face, looking to play on the leg side. The ball hit him on the top of the knee roll. That's a tight call, might have been high or just about hitting leg stump. Will need to see replays. Yes, replays indicate it is too high, Sharjeel is unlucky and he took that decision rather well. 11/1
1.5 to Khurram Manzoor, caught behind! Manzoor bags a duck! He's having a horrible Asia Cup and UAE are alive and kicking! Manzoor tried to cut that ball hard off the back foot but it was the wrong shot. There wasn't enough room and the bounce was steep from a good length as the ball seamed away from the right-hander, he got an edge through to the wicketkeeper to spark off massive celebrations. 11/2
3.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, Pakistan have lost a third wicket! Hafeez has been caught at cover! He strode forward to a full ball that was swinging away from him and drove it flat and straight to the catcher at cover. That was hit quite hard.d Oh my, are we on course for an upset? Hafeez has a bit of a shocked look as he walks off. Again, Pakistan are playing with zero intensity.. 17/3
