13.1 to DR Smith, floats it full on middle from wide of the crease, Smith looks to work it across the line, misses and the umpire didn't take long to raise the finger. Relief for Islamabad, maybe? A poor innings has come to an end, more of a struggle really. That's one wicket the team management wouldn't be too perturbed about.. 108/1
13.2 to BJ Haddin, make that two in two. This one's fired full and onto the base of middle, Haddin looks to back away and carve it over point, was beaten by pace. Tait is pumped, and why not. He's got his Aussie mate first ball. 108/2

Mohammad Irfan402817.00125000
15.2 to Wahab Riaz, takes a dolly at long-on. Wahab looked to slap that over the bowler's head, ended up dragging it and has paid the price.. 101/7
Samuel Badree412015.00141110
3.5 to DJ Malan, gets a thick edge as he shapes to cut, no room to work with and Haddin takes an excellent catch. Did well to crouch low and rise with the bounce to complete the catch.. 24/1
Mohammad Sami301515.00111100
16.3 to Hasan Ali, toe ends a slog, Misbah takes a dolly at cover. Was in no position to play that stroke, didn't get underneath the ball and ended up lobbing it up high in the air, while all he had to do was bunt the ball and give Afridi the strike.. 105/8
Andre Russell403739.2592300
14.4 to Shahid Yousuf, hits the base of middle. Leaps in joy, can there be a better sight for a bowler than seeing the middle stump flattened? Shahid Yousuf looked to flick across the line but was cramped for room as that ball sneaked through the gap to hit timber. 100/6
17.4 to Shahid Afridi, game, set and match? This one was hit towards the longer boundary, didn't get the kind of power he wanted and Smith settled underneath it to take an easy catch at deep midwicket. The disappointment in the crowd is palpable.. 126/9
17.6 to Mohammad Asghar, floats it full and straight on middle, he plays outside the line as the ball nips away to hit timber.. 126/10
Imran Khalid302046.6691110
8.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, there's the wicket. Hafeez looks to pull, the ball stopped on him even as he was through with the stroke, ended lobbing it high in the air as Asif Ali came running in from the deep midwicket fence and held on to the tough chance even as his momentum kept taking him forward.. 59/2
10.2 to Kamran Akmal, brain freeze and that's cost them big. He saw the batsman charge down the pitch and fired it full and wide, Akmal swung and got a thin edge, Haddin collected it cleanly, but also ensured he whipped the bails off quickly. Didn't matter once he caught the ball though. 66/3
12.2 to BJ Hodge, the pressure has got to him. This didn't have the kind of flight Hodge would have liked, was through with the lofted hit, Kamran from long off did well to run around, keep his composure and control as he took it more towards deep cover. Terrific athleticism. 75/4
12.5 to DJG Sammy, bowled round his legs. Sammy went way across to play the half-pull, ball kept low as it beat the swing to hit leg stump.. 80/5
