BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammad Sami402315.75103000
14.5 to STR Binny, inswinging yorker coming into the off stump. Binny, looks to defend it and is beaten by the pace on the delivery and is bowled. He is hurling choicest of words at himself on the way back. Don't be so harsh Stuart, it would have got any other batsman too. Such was the delivery. 126/3
Azhar Mahmood403528.7575000
17.3 to JM Kemp, shorter and slower on the middle stump. Kemp fails to pick the slower one and swings across the line. Predictably, he is beaten and sees the bails dislodged and the middle stump pegged back by a little. 136/5
19.1 to CZ Harris, in swinger and slower in pace again. Harris swings across the line and is beaten neck and crop and is bowled lock, stock, and barrel. 149/7
Naved-ul-Hasan403328.2572111
16.3 to AT Rayudu, fuller on the middle stump. Rayudu is coming down the track in an attempt to loft it away but mistimes it and lofts it straight to Shahid Yousuf at long on. Yousuf, slipped there but ensured that he held onto the ball. 131/4
18.1 to Anirudh Singh, Rana does it again as he bowls a yorker on the middle stump and holds back the pace a liitle. Anirudh, wants to drive it to cover and is into the stroke too soon as the middle stump is pegged back. 139/6
Shahid Nazir403017.5073021
7.6 to JP Maher, beast of a delivery. With the angle making it to come in as Nazir is bowling round the wicket. Maher, is unable to pick the inward drift and yorks himself. When that happens, there is only one result, you hear the death rattle and Maher just does that . What a wicket for the Badshahs. 78/1

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Abdul Razzaq413228.00144200
2.1 to Imran Nazir, first blood. Razzaq gets the ball to swing in after pitching it on the off stump. Razzaq is ecstatic as Nazir looks to defend it and is struck on the pad as his feet move nowhere. Nazir decides to ask for a referral and is sent on his way back. It was a straight forward decision. Well then, do we see a fightback. 8/1
2.5 to Naved-ul-Hasan, Razzaq has his man now as he bowls a good length delivery on the off stump. Rana, picks the length and is playing for the away movement and leaves a huge gap in between bat and pad. The ball maintains the line and pegs back the off stump. Now we have a match on. 8/2
Stuart Binny403127.7593110
14.2 to Azhar Mahmood, on the off stump and fuller in length. Mahmood does not get under the delivery and lofts it to Justin Kemp, who has to dive forward at long on to take the catch and aren't they ecstatic. 100/7
14.5 to Khalid Mahmood, good length outside the off stump. Khalid has a swing at it and gets an outside edge to short third man and IS Reddy takes the catch easily. Badshahs must be having thoughts of the third final now. 102/8
Nicky Boje403027.5081200
6.5 to Imran Farhat, an arm ball on the off stump. Beats Farhat, who is on the run and Khaleel takes the ball cleanly and whips the bails off. Now they have the Badshahs are in a spot of bother. 52/3
17.4 to Mohammad Sami, now ladies and gentlemen doff your hats to Justin Kemp. What a breathtaking catch. Commentators on air say they have never seen a catch like that and I can only nod in affirmative as it was a great catch. Boje bowls a fuller one on the off stump and Sami lofts it to long-off. Kemp runs backwards and across and takes the catch with his palm facing the ground - his hand in a position as if he's trying a backhand flick - and he then gets his right foot across to gain control and falls in front of the ropes. Clean and superb catch that is. 132/9
Chris Harris403127.7581210
9.4 to Mohammad Yousuf, now they have their man. Harris tosses it up just a little bit and Yousuf, falls for the trap as he comes down the track and lofts it straight down the throat of Rayudu at cow corner. 66/4
11.4 to Shahid Yousuf, on the leg stump, Shahid is looking to sweep it away and gets a little deflection back to the keeper and Harris is shocked that it is not given out and immediately asks for a referral and the replays show he gets a little deflection and has to go on his way back. What a way to return back after being struck for two sixes in the over. 81/5
Inder Shekar Reddy302418.0040200
12.4 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, on the leg stump, Inzi moves across and sweeps it straight into the hands of Absolem at deep square leg and Badshahs fall deeper into the pit now. 87/6
