TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.25)185/9
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Mohammad Rizwan, 0.4 ov), 2-38 (Mohammad Haris, 4.4 ov), 3-40 (Babar Azam, 5.2 ov), 4-43 (Shan Masood, 6.3 ov), 5-95 (Mohammad Nawaz, 12.6 ov), 6-177 (Shadab Khan, 18.5 ov), 7-177 (Mohammad Wasim, 18.6 ov), 8-177 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 19.1 ov), 9-185 (Haris Rauf, 19.6 ov)
0.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, chop on! Cramped him for room again on fourth stump back of a length. Rizwan tried to open the face to guide this behind point to third man but it's too tight for the shot with a touch of movement back in and it comes off the bottom edge onto the stumps.. 4/1
19.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, skied to long-on, brilliantly taken! Iftikhar went deep in the crease and blasted it downtown, that's a long hit towards the old pavilion and Rossouw throws himself to take a tough chance above his head. He lands heavily, skids to a stop just inside the rope, then gets up with a casual ball toss in celebration. 177/8
5.2 to Babar Azam, Rabada has been a gem in the field this tourney and takes a brilliant skier running back from the circle at midwicket. Babar is finally put out of his misery with another slower ball landing on a good length on fourth stump. He struggles to keep the hands back on a heave for the leg side and skies this over midwicket and mid-on. Rabada coves 25 yards running back from the edge of the circle and takes an over the shoulder catch in stride. He has made some very difficult catches look incredibly easy this tournament. Add that to the list. Was probably 8/10 on difficulty on account of the distance needing to be covered but he did the hard work to make the hands rest easy. Most fielders would've needed to put in a dive there to get to the ball but he stayed upright to the end.. 40/3
4.4 to Mohammad Haris, fullish length on the border between fourth stump and off stump, Haris shuffles way across his stumps to whip through midwicket on a 146 kph delivery and misses. Big lbw shout upheld. Haris reviews it. Live, I thought he was clearly outside the line of off stump. But this is an excellent decision. Ball-tracking shows he was in line with off stump on contact and the ball was ripping out the top of middle and off with three reds lighting up. Haris goes for a wildly entertaining 28 off 11.. 38/2
6.3 to Shan Masood, fullish length slower ball from Nortje on off stump, Masood pushes too hard at this 132 kph delivery with his hands way out in front of his body expecting the ball to come through quicker at 150 kph and the ball lobs up gently to Bavuma at mid-off who takes a thigh high catch.. 43/4
18.5 to Shadab Khan, launched leg side... and taken this time! There ends an innings of mighty booshing from Shadab. Short ball and he went aerial again, this one well held at deep midwicket by Stubbs as he fell backwards. But we've seen some brilliant death hitting from Shadab. 177/6
18.6 to Mohammad Wasim, dug in, top-edged swipe, gone! Nortje was circling but Bavuma swoops in from mid-off to complete the job. Two in two balls for Nortje - and, just as importantly at this stage, back-to-back dots. 177/7
12.6 to Mohammad Nawaz, sweeps, struck in front! The finger goes up, and Shamsi ends an eventful over with the partnership-breaking wicket. Nawaz walks off without reviewing... but wait, did he get some bat on that? Definitely an under-edge on the sweep, before it hit him on the front pad. 95/5

TOTAL14 Ov (RR: 7.71)108/9
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Quinton de Kock, 0.6 ov), 2-16 (Rilee Rossouw, 2.4 ov), 3-65 (Temba Bavuma, 7.1 ov), 4-66 (Aiden Markram, 7.3 ov), 5-94 (Heinrich Klaasen, 10.5 ov), 6-99 (Wayne Parnell, 11.5 ov), 7-101 (Tristan Stubbs, 12.4 ov), 8-103 (Kagiso Rabada, 13.2 ov), 9-103 (Anrich Nortje, 13.4 ov)
0.6 to Q de Kock, full on off at 135 kph, tries to repeat the same shot with a heave aiming to clear midwicket but scuffs this off the toe of the bat and it floats gently to Mohammad Haris on the ring, who does a bunny hop to reach above his head bobbling the chance initially before claiming it on the second attempt.. 1/1
2.4 to RR Rossouw, short and wide on eighth stump, goes to cut this 134 kph delivery over backward point but instead the extra pace and bounce produces a top-edged slash to deep third man. Naseem Shah ranges 10 yards to his right and slides to take a thigh high catch on his knees four yards inside the rope before pointing his arms aloft.. 16/2
10.5 to H Klaasen, leading edge, straight up... it's coming down with snow on. Well held at short third! Mohammad Wasim is cool as you like, and Afridi strikes back at a crucial moment. Not the best ball, really, on leg stump and inviting Klaasen to swing across the line. But it flew up the chimney. 94/5
12.4 to T Stubbs, slower bouncer, pulled to deep square leg! Naseem wins this battle, and Pakistan are winning this contest. Excellent headology from one youngster to another, Stubbs can't generate enough power and it's a simple, low catch coming in off the rope. 101/7
13.4 to A Nortje, plinked into the leg side! Nortje goes big, goes home. Another cutter from Rauf and he mistimes a filthy slog out towards deep midwicket, where it's safely pouched. 103/9
11.5 to WD Parnell, tries something cute, pinned in front! Parnell is hit on the pads attempting to paddle another pinpoint yorker, and up goes the finger. He reviews, but this is stone cold, like Steve Austin. Tell you what, that might have actually been a half-volley, if Parnell had stood still in the crease. But there's no doubt it was hitting middle and off at shin height. 99/6
7.1 to T Bavuma, strikes first ball! Stock legbreak lands on a good length on fifth stump, Bavuma tries to open the face to run this through vacant slip to third man but gets the shot too fine and offers a simple edge behind to Rizwan.. 65/3
7.3 to AK Markram, bullseye with a topspinner! Skids this a touch quicker on a good length on middle, Markram goes back to whip against the turn through midwicket playing for a googly but it is too quick off the pitch and skids between bad and pad crashing into the top of middle stump.. 66/4
