9.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, holes out this time! Slightly slower ball on off stump, and Shehzad tries to repeat the same shot. Deceived by the pace, and through his shot too early. Doesn't have the distance, and taken by de Grandhomme at long on. 94/1
Ben Wheeler403629.00105110
18.3 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, slower ball does the trick! Good length on off stump, and the batsman tries to repeat that shot, but he's through his pull too early. Holes out to Munro at midwicket, who completes a sharp catch. 187/3
18.5 to Faheem Ashraf, this time Santner holds on! Short on middle and pulled too early! Top edged and easily taken by the man at midwicket. Almost a front-foot no ball from Wheeler, but good to earn the wicket. 188/4
Ish Sodhi403208.0062110
Mitchell Santner2030015.0000320
Colin de Grandhomme201819.0022010
10.3 to Fakhar Zaman, another slower ball fetches a wicket! Short on leg stump, and Fakhar attempts to pull this behind square. But there's no pace behind that delivery for the pull shot. Plus, he's through his shot too early. Top edged to fine leg, who composes himself and completes the catch. 96/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammad Amir402827.00121200
2.6 to C Munro, traps him! Full on off stump, and Munro misses the leg-side flick after walking across to the off side. Hits him full in front of off stump, and the umpire raises his finger for the lbw. 25/1
17.5 to MJ Santner, back of a length on off stump, tries to pull but beaten by the pace. Misses the shot, and a feather edge off the bat takes it through to Sarfraz. Santner goes after a fighting knock. 152/8
Rumman Raees302719.0053011
3.3 to KS Williamson, good length on middle and leg, flicked off his hips to midwicket and it's been lobbed to the fielder! Diving catch, jumping across to his right, and it's a superb take from Haris. KW falls cheaply. 28/2
Faheem Ashraf3.302236.28132110
7.5 to GD Phillips, good length on middle, extra bounce off the surface, and Philips drives this ball. Hasn't adjusted for the extra zip off the surface, and his on-side drive lobs into the air. Sohail's not going to miss that at midwicket. Takes his third catch of the evening. 58/5
18.1 to SHA Rance, full on leg stump, Rance backs away and muscles this over the infield, but no distance behind that shot. Comfortably taken by Fakhar at long on. Swing of the bat, and enough wood behind it, but safely caught by the Navy man. 153/9
18.3 to IS Sodhi, short on middle stump, slower ball and the pull induces another top edge. Flies over the keeper, but short fine leg races behind to complete the catch. Pakistan win by 48 runs!. 153/10
Hasan Ali402716.7592100
14.3 to BM Wheeler, cleans him up! Real quick ball on a good length outside off. Angling into Wheeler as the batsman misses the pull shot. Takes a bottom edge and crashes into middle and leg. Huge celebration from Hasan Ali. 118/7
Shadab Khan403729.2572220
6.5 to MJ Guptill, taken at short third man! Short outside off, and Guptill cuts at it but is through his shot too early. Takes the top edge, and straight to the infielder. Easy take, and that's four down. 52/4
8.2 to C de Grandhomme, Shadab has the last laugh! Slower in the air this time, and on a good length. The batsman came down the wicket too early, and the ball spun away from his bat. Quick take from the keeper, and he dislodges the bails before CDG can turn and ground his bat. 64/6
