Praveen Kumar1013703.70374000
Ishant Sharma1005715.70337021
41.6 to Younis Khan, done in by the slower one. Younis was early into his lofted drive and lobs it to Sehwag at midwicket. But it was a fab innings from Younis Khan; he has propelled Pakistan towards a strong total.. 239/2
Irfan Pathan1005925.90247000
9.3 to Kamran Akmal, He is gone now. Again, he walked across the stumps, Irfan alert this time hurled it full and outside off and Akmal edged a drive low to the right of Dhoni who makes no mistake. Something had to give as the runs weren't coming thick and fast.. 34/1
47.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Low full toss, Misbah swings it straight to Rohit Sharma, standing near the ropes at long-on, who takes it the 'Australian style' .. 293/3

Umar Gul905746.33307102
10.3 to RG Sharma, pitched it short, Rohit tries a short-arm jab, takes the top edge and it flies straight into the hands of Nasir Jamshed at deep-backward square leg. 67/2
12.2 to G Gambhir, He's gone! that's the wicket Pakistan wanted, banged in short, just a bit of width, Gambhir upper cuts it powerfully but is held at backward point by Nasir Jamshed, just a few yards in from the boundary. 79/3
45.4 to P Kumar, trapped in front. He thrust his front foot across and tried to paddle a low full toss on the leg stump line. It would have hit the leg stump.. 262/8
47.5 to PP Chawla, cleaned him up with a yorker. Gul has been bowling superbly at the death and continues to be reward for his accurate length. The bat couldn't come down in time and the death rattle for Chawla would have been delightful to Gul's ears. Nasim Ashraf is up on his feet, celebrating the wicket.. 284/9
Sohail Tanvir1016016.00285120
1.5 to V Sehwag, Sohail Tanvir takes out Sehwag. Fullish, on the off and middle stump line, Sehwag shapes to drive through the on side, the bat face shuts early and the ball lobs off the leading edge to mid-off. Pakistan are over the moon. All fielders converge to celebrate the big wicket.. 8/1
Iftikhar Anjum1005825.80306100
17.3 to YK Pathan, Gone! he's holed out to midwicket, not the greatest of deliveries, back of a length on off stump, he could have smashed that anywhere, instead he hits it to Younis Khan. 106/4
43.1 to IK Pathan, Another wicket goes down. Irfan pulls a short-of-length delivery to midwicket. No power or timing there and it just lobbed to the fielder.. 247/7
Shahid Afridi9.205626.00252230
31.5 to Yuvraj Singh, And finally Afridi gets a favorable nod from umpire Nadir Shah. It was the slider that skidded across Yuvraj after landing on back of length on the off and middle line, Yuvraj shaped to pull and got a thin bottom edge through to Akmal. Yuvraj too was lucky to survive couple of close lbw decisions.. 187/6
48.2 to MS Dhoni, another swing and this time he holes out to sweeper cover. Game over. Pakistan win the series. Malik rushes across and jumps at Afridi. They all converge. Now both teams shake hands with each other. Super win for Pakistan. They rebounded well after a big loss in the earlier game to win when it mattered. The Kitply cup is in the bag.. 290/10
Shoaib Malik402807.00114000
Fawad Alam602414.00150010
28.6 to SK Raina, done in by a full toss outside leg! Raina, who was lucky to survive a close lbw decision earlier, top edged his sweep to deep square leg where Afridi ran in to take a lunging catch.. 179/5
