2.4 to GR Adair, Stumps shattered, what a sight for Shaheen who is absolutely elated! Spears it full on middle and gets it to tail back, Adair went for a big swing down the ground and made a horrible mess of his stumps. Beautiful set-up, bowled a shorter one and followed it up with a fuller delivery, foxing him completely.. 15/1
14.5 to NA Rock, Slung down full and arcing in, cramping him for room, he made his mind to batter it down the ground, picks out long-on and he didn't have to move a muscle to take that catch, couple of wickets in a succession as Ireland to make most of these last six overs, Neil Rock fails to make an impact on his first opportunity in this series. 137/4
18.3 to MR Adair, Throws it away! A thunderbolt climbing insanely off the deck in the channel, he tries to smash that through the off side and ends up edging it to Mohammad Amir at short third. Shaheen Afridi picks up his third, that's what Pakistan expects from him, the ace pacer, the leader of the pace attack. This has been a quality performance.. 164/7
16.3 to GH Dockrell, Amir takes a breathtaking running catch off his own bowling! A slower cutter outside off, he crouches in a bid to slice it over cover but the ball looped up at cover-point and Amir ran like a bull who has seen a red rug, got under it in time and gobbled it up. 150/5
10.5 to A Balbirnie, Much-needed breakthrough for Pakistan! That is a screamer from Mohammad Rizwan who is always a livewire in the field. Landed on a length outside off, thrashes away and finds Rizwan at deep point who came sprinting in from the edge of the boundary and then put in a dive to take a outstanding catch, excellent athleticism. 100/2
17.2 to C Campher, Picks out Shaheen at short third! Zinger from Abbas who is growing in confidence and is someone who can be banked on at the death. It was a fullish slower ball just outside off, he changes his stance for a reverse scoop and lobbed it straight to Shaheen who took a regulation catch.. 153/6
13.4 to LJ Tucker, Springs down the track and goes big but hasn't got enough distance, Saim Ayub pouches it gleefully at deep extra cover and that brings an end to Tucker's innings, played like a captain, has given Ireland a launchpad to post an impregnable score. An innings laced with 13 fours and a maximum, job done. 132/3

2.3 to Saim Ayub, Dockrell has taken a gem! On a length at middle, tries to pump it over deep square and ends up getting a top-edge that flies away towards point, another early demise for Saim Ayub, he was in a good position to flick that way, that's his go-to shot but the ball bounced more than he expected, it wasn't that short, likes to attack and the risk didn't pay off on this occasion. Adair strikes, a window is open, Ireland will need to pick wickets at regular intervals because Pakistan bat deep. 16/1
14.5 to Mohammad Rizwan, Ireland get the prized scalp! Rizwan went way too far across his stumps to tickle it fine and Adair bowls a magnificent yorker at middle in the blockhole and the bails come off. Cracking delivery. 155/2
16.2 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Gottim! On a length and it jags back at middle, Iftikhar pounds it downtown and holes out to long-on. Wanted to finish the game in style but he got more elevation than distance on this occasion, he has been finding fielders at long-on and long-off quite often in the last few games, didn't find the middle on this occasion, Adair continues to have a splendid outing. 167/4
15.3 to Babar Azam, Thumped hard into the surface and gets some purchase on a fifth stump line, tries to boom it downtown and holes out to long-on, too little, too late but Babar would be gutted to miss out on an opportunity to stay till the end and finish the game, nevertheless, it's been a remarkable innings from Pakistan captain, started slowly but once he got set, he fired on all cylinders and showed his range. 158/3
