Shaheen Shah Afridi1003823.80372100
41.6 to Asghar Afghan, If they won't catch, hit the stumps length ball, coming into the batsman. Asghar has been targetting that six over midwicket all over long, this time, he misses and the slower ball hits the stumps. Shaheen Afridi has a wicket on ODI debut. Much deserved. Would have been a travesty if he had ended up wicketless thanks to dropped catches. 188/4
43.6 to Mohammad Nabi, a catch is finally taken off Shaheen Afridi full on the stumps and Nabi wanted his pick up shot to go over deep square leg, but he didn't time it well enough and Hasan Ali made no mistake. 200/5
Mohammad Nawaz1015735.70283300
8.6 to Ihsanullah, dolly, and finally taken he perhaps thought that was coming in with the angle and tried to whip it, only got a tame leading edge back to the bowler. The bowler reaped the rewards of tying the batsman down. Ishanullah was looking to break free, and didn't look comfortable doing it. 26/1
10.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, got im! flighted ball, gets it to turn enough to beat an ambitious drive and Sarfraz takes a smart catch behind the stumps off the thin edge. Feet didn't move at all from the batsman. 31/2
25.3 to Rahmat Shah, fumbles but holds on! Nawaz almost ruins it for himself as he gets under a top-edge, but he takes it at the second attempt. Such a good pace on that ball. Loopy dipper on middle stump at a length, beats the batsman in flight - he is looking to sweep but the ball is not full enough. Some grip and turn away and a rash shot from a usually solid batsman. He's gone for 36, Pakistan have an opening.. 94/3

46.2 to Najibullah Zadran, stumps splattered slower ball, the offcutter, and it's on target. The batsman wanted to swing it towards the legside, misses it completely. The ball doesn't miss the stumps. 212/6

Mujeeb Ur Rahman1023323.30391030
0.6 to Fakhar Zaman, big appeal and it's given! Oh that looked to be both an inside edge and striking him outside off...although Zaman didn't take the review immediately so we could rule the edge out. He was looking to sweep this full ball outside of...and yes, he was struck outside off. Chooses not to review after a chat with Imam and Pakistan have lost one very early. 0/1
41.1 to Haris Sohail, taken at long-on. Haris is done by the googly. It's a short ball that he expects to spin into him from off stump, so he's opened his stance and is looking to pull with that angle towards midwicket. But the googly squares him up and he ends up slicing an easy one out to Ishanullan. 194/4
Aftab Alam9.316406.73235230
Gulbadin Naib1006116.10224030
44.6 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, but he won't succeed! Out of sorts all innings long. Makes room and misses a full toss that's headed for middle stump. It was there for a slog, it was there for a chop, it was...well, he could've really done anything with that. But he chose to back away and nudge it behind square and when the ball dips from waist height, that's a risky shot - to offer so little of the bat to it. He's gone and once more, we sway.. 216/5
Mohammad Nabi1005005.00292210
Rashid Khan1004634.60321220
35.1 to Babar Azam, this looks out too! A stumping appeal has been sent upstairs. Full and drifted in outside off. Babar looks to drive but this rips rapidly past his outside edge because he hasn't got to the crease. His back leg had dragged out...and Shahzad's quick hands means Babar is gone too. Like a flash, the Afghan keeper. Stunning, stunning work. Rashid Khan has come steaming in and stolen another moment for himself.. 158/3
46.3 to Asif Ali, taken at long-off! The revenge of the spinner! Holds his index finger up and stares into the batsman's eyes as he walks off. Full fizzing legbreak wide outside off, Asif has his front leg well outside leg stump. He won't get leverage for this because his weight is all over the place. Slices it off the toe and a reverse-cup from Aftab Alam out at the boundary. 226/6
48.3 to Mohammad Nawaz, smashes middle and leg! Short of a length and he ends up swinging from over it. It's never easy to play horizontal bat shots against him. But it's what he needed to do. Couldn't get bat on it.. 242/7
