19.3 to Shahid Afridi, And Nannes gets his revenge! Afridi moved outside leg and Nannes fired it full and straight on the leg stump. Clatter!. 171/5
4.3 to Salman Butt, Gone now. He moved away a touch and drilled it but hit it straight to cover. Pakistan lose their first wicket. 38/1
9.6 to Kamran Akmal, holes out to deep midwicket. Akmal fetches the flighted delivery from outside off and goes for the shorter square boundary but slog sweeps it straight to the man. It almost popped out of his hand but he holds the rebound. 81/2
17.5 to Younis Khan, moves down the track and goes for another six but doesn't connect well this time and holes out to long-on. 152/4
12.6 to Shoaib Malik, Another one goes down at deep midwicket. With just five runs scored in the over, Malik went for the big one and chose the on side but couldn't get much power behind it.. 99/3

1.3 to DJ Reekers, But he is gone now. He cleared his front foot and went for the pull but top edged it to square leg He was looking dangerous but is gone, going for the third four in a row.. 13/1
17.3 to PM Seelaar, And Pakistan go through to the next round in style. What a Dutch capitulation this has been. Gul cleans up the leg stump. The crowd roar. Netherlands played well against England but couldn't repeat the trick today. Pakistan didn't allow them. Their spinners, Ajmal and Afridi in particular, were fantastic. As some of you have mailed in, Kamran Akmal now has the most stumpings in a T20.. 93/10
8.4 to PW Borren, Butt takes the catch and Kamran Akmal rushes to him in glee. Another edge from the slog sweep and Butt settled under it at short fine-leg to take the simple catch. But when you have been dropping left right centre, nothing is easy I guess. It was a nice little doosra. 47/3
8.6 to AN Kervezee, Another fine doosra from Ajmal. Kervezee had dashed down the track, looking for the big hit to the on side, but was left stranded by the one that broke away. Akmal does the rest. Top bowling and Pakistan are running hot here.. 49/4
16.4 to DP Nannes, Another stumping from Akmal. It was another lovely little doosra from Ajmal, who has really impressed today. Nannes had walked into the shot and was beaten by the delivery that broke away. He must have thought that he was bowled as he didn't initially try to get back. Akmal had not collected cleanly but recovered quickly to break the stumps. nannes turned back only after that. Too late.. 90/9
7.1 to B Zuiderent, Afridi does the trick. What a fine yorker to get rid of the batsman. Zuiderent tried to bring his bat down in a hurry. Blur. The off stump has been uprooted.. 42/2
11.1 to TN de Grooth, Afridi has cleaned him up. Pakistan climb all over the Dutch. Grooth moved outside leg, Afridi skids it on towards the leg stump and Grooth misses it completely. 61/5
11.3 to DLS van Bunge, And they continue to crumble under the spin. Shahid Afridi is turning in a little gem of a spell here. Afridi saw van Bunge charge out and slipped in a yorker outside the off stump. van Bunge missed it but Akmal doesn't. Stumped!. 61/6
13.3 to E Schiferli, Afridi is having a great time with the ball and Pakistan maintain their charge through to the next round. Afridi flighted it wide outside off and it was hit straight to long-off. 74/8
12.5 to RN ten Doeschate, And then they were three. Malik does a AFridi this time. He sees the batsman rush down the track, slips in a yorker outside off and Akmal does well to collect and break the stumps.. 71/7
