Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nicholls, FOUR runs

short and outside off, Nicholls swivels on the back foot, gets on top of it and times a pull behind square on the leg side

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Worker, 1 run

full and outside off, driven through the line to mid-off. A fumble there from Zaman allows a single

Umair: "There has been reports of heavy downpour on Abu Dhabi highway few mins back not far away from Dubai Sports City and the weather charts are showing the rain system is moving towards Dubai ...Bad news coming ahead !"

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nicholls, 1 run

short and outside off, punches outside the line and inadvertently sends an inside edge to square leg

6.2
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nicholls, no run

back of a length and angling in, Afridi has Nicholls falling over the flick but this is surely heading down leg with the sharp angle from over the wicket. He barely appeals

6.1
Shaheen Shah Afridi to Nicholls, no run

very full and sprayed into the pads, full-blooded flick from the batsman, but Haris swoops in and dives to his right to collect the ball at short midwicket

Two lefties at the crease. Where's Hafeez? Shaheen to continue

end of over 69 runs

on a length and slanting in towards off, prodded back to the bowler

Adeel: "Shaheen's early years coach and mentor was his elder brother Riaz Afridi who played only 1 test for Pakistan and that was against Sri Lanka. Later on Riaz joined the controversial ICL and couldn't make a come back"

Faheem to Worker, FOUR runs

back of a length and angling into the pads, follows muscle with finesse, picked away fine of short fine leg

Faheem to Worker, FOUR runs

Okay, now Worker steps out and thumps it to the midwicket boundary - the first in the chase. He ventures down the pitch, meets a short ball outside off and muscles it away. Dismissed

5.2
Faheem to Worker, no run

What was that, Worker? He runs down the track, hacks to the leg side, but misses it by a long way. Ashraf found some seam movement as well, making life tough for the batsman

Faheem to Nicholls, 1 run

shortish on off, worked to mid-on for a hustled single. These two are keeping the fielders on their toes

Shaheen Shah Afridi to Worker, no run

nice and full on off, Worker covers up in defence, and the ball rolls away to short cover
