Assad Vala402817.00123100
16.1 to Adil Bhatti, Vala takes a return catch. Straight roller just a shade outside off, Bhatti seeks to drive it. He hits it in the air, Vala hangs onto it in his followthrough. He wrings his hands in pain... 102/4
Norman Vanua302408.0073000
Willie Gavera3034011.3365100
Mahuru Dai402115.25111100
10.5 to AL Dodson, Plumb in front. Umpire Tim Robinson raises his forefinger. Dai gives this loads of air on middle, Dodson shuffles a smidgen across off, misses the defensive little push and is struck on the front pad. He has to depart for a run-a-ball 38. 79/2
Chad Soper401914.75101000
7.6 to Fahad Babar, The rapid opening stand has been broken by Soper... Looks like a cross seamer outside off, sort of stops on Babar, who was on the walk while he played an attempted drive. Spooned into the hands of cover. 65/1
Charles Amini2020210.0053001
15.4 to JH Patel, bowled'em. Amini exults. Slides on quick on middle, keeps low as well. Patel does not get hold of the pull. He drags it it on off an under edge. 101/3
17.3 to AAA Amsterdam, quicker through the air and Amini drags his length back outside off. Amsterdam wants to slog it across the line and ends up getting a leading edge to Dai at short third man. 114/5

Naseer Jamali401914.75132010
0.5 to TP Ura, Jamali strikes in his first over. Banged in short and wide outside off, Ura shapes to cut and ends up slicing it to Shahid at deep third man. Ura has been asked to wait... The umpire's check for a possible no-ball. Jamali's front foot is fine. 7/1
Muhammad Ghous402726.75132120
1.2 to L Siaka, Ghous leaps and takes high-fives from his team-mates. Openers fall. Siaka ventures down the track, Ghous is wary of it as he fires it flat and outside off. Siaka can't connect. The keeper does the rest. Dodson pulls off the finger-on-the-lip celebration... 8/2
3.5 to A Vala, picks out cover. Looped up outside off as Ghous held this one back. Vala was a bit early into an airy drive. Chipped tamely to cover. 21/3
Adil Bhatti402616.5093000
11.3 to S Bau, PNG are sliding quickly. Dodson thumps the bowler's chest. Good length and on off, Bau seeks to swipe it across the line. But the ball twists in his hands to foil his timing. Skewered to long-off. 61/5
Hammad Shahid402416.0070011
8.5 to JNT Vare, PNG four down. Vare ventures down the track and yorks himself. Shahid shoots through the legs and hits the timber. He sets off on an airplane celebration, a la Shoiab Akthar. 42/4
Timil Patel403228.0071100
14.2 to K Pala, Patel gives it ample air outside off. Pala comes down the track and misses an almighty slog-sweep. He is beaten in flight. Patel strikes the off stump and roars. 88/6
16.6 to MD Dai, holes out to long-on. Dai slams his bat onto the turf as he trudges back. Flighted around off, Dai takes the aerial route and slog-sweeps it to Shahid at the edge of the long-on boundary. Big, big wicket for USA. 115/7
