5.5 to I Khaleel, Rana has his man now. Bowls a fuller delivery on the middle stump and it looked to be coming in. Khaleel, as has been his wont looks to flick it away but does not get his bat down in time as the ball thuds onto pads. Although at the first look it seemed to be going down leg, replays suggest it would have held it's line and off goes Khaleel. 49/1
17.3 to STR Binny, good length delivery on the off stump and moving away a touch as Binny is looking to heave it over long off. Binny misreads the length of the delivery as he is into the shot early and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Rana, gives a send-off to the batsman. 153/3
19.6 to Abdul Razzaq, short outside the off stump, Razzaq is looking to pull it away and gets a top edge to long on, where Imran Nazir takes the catch. Rana has some choicest of words to hurl at Razzaq, who is visibly unhappy and has a word with Inzi. 170/5
Arshad Khan4043010.7514111
Saqlain Mushtaq403117.7562110
15.3 to JP Maher, finally Saqlain has a wicket. Saqlain notices Maher coming down the track as he pulls back the length a little and bowls it faster than usual. The ball manages to beat the outside edge and Khalid does the rest as he flicks the bails away. 138/2

Abdul Razzaq403518.75115101
2.1 to Imran Nazir, they have their man, the Heroes. Razzaq, bowls one short and Nazir comes down the track in an attempt to pull it away but gets a top edge that takes an eternity to come down and Kemp is under the ball to take it comfortably. Razzaq, lifts his arms prematurely and smiles. 28/1
Syed Shahabuddin2030015.0032300
Inder Shekar Reddy402817.0082110
15.2 to Shahid Yousuf, good length on the middle stump. Shahid comes forward and looks to defend it but the ball hits him on the pads and he is plumb in front. He asks for the referral and the umpires decision is upheld. 142/6
Nicky Boje402015.00130110
9.2 to Naved-ul-Hasan, fuller on the leg stump, Rana makes room and slogs it straight down the throat of IS Reddy at long on. He took the pretty deep, just in front of the ropes. Lady luck was not smiling on Rana this time. 82/2
Chris Harris3.102517.8983100
14.1 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, outside the off stump and cutting in, Inzamam, looks to pull it away and is beaten and hears the death rattle as the middle stump is pegged back. 136/4

Anirudh Singh1015115.0022100
13.2 to Imran Farhat, fuller outside the off stump, Farhat comes down the track and does not get under it as he lofts it down the throat of IS Reddy at long off. Has the wicket come too late for the Heroes?. 127/3
