Bhuvneshwar Kumar402646.50133100
2.4 to Babar Azam, short ball, top edges to short fine leg, who takes the catch! Pakistan lose their captain early. Bouncer from Kumar and it got big on Babar as he looked to pull it to square leg. India draw first blood. 15/1
16.3 to Asif Ali, Holes out to Surya at long-off. Slower legcutter from Bhuvneshwar. Asif lofts in the air, does not get enough elevation. Picks out Surya at the boundary. Pakistan sink further in Dubai. 112/6
18.2 to Shadab Khan, Bhuvneshwar spins around for an lbw appeal and the finger goes up. Shadab challenges the on-field out decision. Very full and ducks back in to catch the batter on the crease. Did Shadab nick this? Ultra Edge does not detect a spike when ball passes bat. The tracker returns three reds and Shadab has to go. 128/8
18.3 to Naseem Shah, another lbw appeal, and the finger goes up once again. Pakistan goes for a review once again. Full again from Bhuvneshwar, skids back in to ping the pad on the knee-roll. Not bat involved. Ball-tracking suggests it would have shaved the top of the stumps. Umpire's call and Naseem bags a golden duck on debut. 128/9
Arshdeep Singh3.503328.60134120
17.1 to Mohammad Nawaz, Arshdeep comes back and has Nawaz nicking off to DK. On a length and wobbles away outside off from over the wicket. Nawaz has a feeble little prod at it and edges it to the keeper. 114/7
19.5 to Shahnawaz Dahani, Arshdeep yorks Dahani and closes out the innings. Wide on the crease, inswinging yorker. Squeezes underneath the bat and clatters into the base of middle stump. 147/10
Hardik Pandya402536.25102020
12.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Pandya comes back and bounces out Ahmed. Lifter outside off, 142ks, rushes Ahmed into a hook. He weakly flaps at the ball and top-edges it behind to DK who leaps and grabs the ball. 87/3
14.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, Another short ball. Another wicket for India. Hardik bounces out another batter. Banged in short and keeps ducking in with the angle from over the wicket. Rizwan looks away and is surprised by the bounce. He goes low, aims to ramp half-heartedly and ends up guiding this 141kph delivery into the hands of Avesh at deep third. 96/4
14.3 to Khushdil Shah, Five short balls, five wickets for India. This is Pandya's third. Dug in short and angling across off from over the wicket. Shah leaps off his feet and swishes it straight to Jadeja at sweeper cover. Shah mistimes a cut and holes out This is turning out to be a terrific spell from Pandya. 97/5
Avesh Khan201919.5042100
5.5 to Fakhar Zaman, the extra bounce beat him, or so it seemed, but it's taken the faintest of nicks! The Indian players didn't appeal much, but Fakhar just walked off. Not sure the umpire even raised the finger. It was a short of a length ball and it bounced up higher than the batter expected. 42/2

Naseem Shah402726.75122120
0.2 to KL Rahul, inside edge dragged onto the stumps, and Rahul departs first ball! Naseem strikes first ball, and Pakistan have their perfect start! Naseem reeled away in celebration, having taken KL Rahul's wicket off his second T20I ball. Is this going to be a nervy chase, then?. 1/1
14.2 to SA Yadav, Bam! Naseem knocks out the off stump. Back of a length and zipping in from over the wicket at 142ks, it looked a lot quicker than that, though. Surya clears his front leg, slogs and misses the ball altogether. Naseem hits his target and delivers the big breakthrough for Pakistan. 89/4
Shahnawaz Dahani402907.2572020
Haris Rauf403508.75114120
Shadab Khan401904.75101000
Mohammad Nawaz3.403339.0071300
7.6 to RG Sharma, and Rohit's grind comes to an end! Came down the ground to try and smash this through the line over mid-off, but he miscues it to long-off, where Iftikhar holds on to it. 50/2
9.1 to V Kohli, Kohli sends it straight down long-off's throat. That was a bit of a gift to Iftikhar, who takes the simplest of chances. He struck it through the line, but didn't get the distance on it, and it almost felt like catching practice for the fielder. Huge moment in the game. 53/3
19.1 to RA Jadeja, Nawaz castles Jadeja. Flat and quick from around the stumps, Jadeja goes for the massive slog and does not connect. Nawaz hits the stumps. Pandya sinks to his knees at the other end. 141/5
