Bilal Khan411624.00152000
0.5 to TP Ura, first wicket of the World Cup. Played on. the swing does it. The first ambitious shot of the innings, and he gets an inside edge on this inswinging delivery. He is bowled. 0/1
16.6 to SK Atai, short ball does the trick. He set himself up to pull but this got big on him and he only gets a tame top-edge that midwicket does well to catch, taking a few steps backwards and holding it over his left shoulder, tumbling but not letting the ball go.. 117/8
1.3 to L Siaka, another chop on. It is turning out to be a horrible debut for PNG. After two full outwingers, Kaleem goes short, Atai looks to pull, but the ball takes the bottom edge onto the stumps. 0/2
14.1 to A Vala, squirted up off the leading edge and Jatinder takes a good catch running in from long-on. Key strike with the death overs approaching. Vala had been looking to be more aggressive since that tumble from Zeeshan into his ankle, and he wanted to go towards wide long-on with this one. Gets a lot more height than distance, and the ball goes steepling but Jatinder calmly gets udner it and holds on.. 102/4

15.1 to N Vanua, done him. Nice loop and turn too. Drew him forward, looking to clip through midwicket after taking a few steps, dips and pitches so that he can't reach the pitch, turns and takes out off-stump. 112/5
15.3 to S Bau, he's reverse-swatted him straight to short third man. That was a ball that deserved punishment, proper long hop, he opened his stance and looked to reverse hit it over point, but can only pick out the safe as houses Jatinder.. 113/6
15.5 to K Doriga, three in an over for Zeeshan. Tame leading edge pops straight to point. They're not reading the turn at all, he closed the face to length ball too early, and that's as straightforward a catch as any.. 113/7
17.2 to D Ravu, stunning catch at long-on with Nadeem timing his jump to a nicety. This looked like it was headed over the boundary, full in the slot and he had a full-blooded golf swing at it. Travelled a bit flatter than he intended perhaps but seemed to have enough legs to clear Nadeem. But the fielder showed Michael Jordan-like hang-time in leaping up and holding on, then landing with a stable base so that no danger of stepping over the boundary.. 118/9
