10.4 to CH Gayle, gone. Unbelievable. Full toss on off, deserved to be smashed again and Gayle hits it alright, but straight down the throat to long-on. Against the run-of-play. Loose delivery, Babar not only gets away with it, but removes the boss.. 108/1
15.2 to Azhar Ali, out. Gone. Offcutter on off, Azhar goes to slog it away into the leg side and hits it well. But doesn't get enough elevation. The heave finds deep midwicket. Great innings from Azhar, has set up a really strong foundation for his team. 142/2

Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Ahmed Shehzad, 2.1 ov), 2-101 (Kevin Pietersen, 8.4 ov), 3-101 (Bismillah Khan, 8.5 ov), 4-162 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 15.3 ov), 5-163 (Kumar Sangakkara, 15.6 ov), 6-171 (Grant Elliott, 16.6 ov), 7-172 (Mohammad Nawaz, 17.3 ov), 8-186 (Anwar Ali, 18.5 ov)
2.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, given. Hmm, interesting decision. Good length delivery on leg, Shehzad shuffles across but misses his flick. The umpire raises the finger in a hurry but was that too high or sliding down? Replays aren't conclusive, Shehzad has to go anyway.. 28/1
15.3 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, bowled im. big moment in the match. Quetta were looking in total control, no need for that stroke. He comes down, looking for the ramp and goes too far. Adil keeps it simple and straight. Sarfraz misses. Adil hits. Lahore have an important strike.. 162/4
15.6 to KC Sangakkara, gone. Sanga has to go. What an over, what a comeback. Full on off, Sanga misses his drive. And the ball clatters into the stumps. What a blow that is. They check for a no-ball but he is fine. Adil has the double-strike.. 163/5
17.3 to Mohammad Nawaz, gone. Nawaz goes. Adil gets him. Put in the slot on off, right there for the big hit and Nawaz goes for it but on;ly manages a thin outside edge which is easily held by the keeper.. 172/7
16.6 to GD Elliott, oh my. What a terrible delivery. Would have been a wide if Elliott ignored it. He tickled it fine to short fine leg. Adil collects cleanly, but did it carry? Adil draws a box in the air to call for the television replays. Replays seem inconclusive whether it has carried or not. A replay shows it has carried, according to me. Is there too much doubt? No, says the third umpire. It has been given out. The worst ball of the over has the wicket. Another match-turning moment.. 171/6
8.4 to KP Pietersen, slower ball has deceived KP. Big wicket that. KP is way too early through his shot and ends up skewing the ball in the air to long-on. Umar Akmal settles underneath it. Big wicket that. 101/2
8.5 to Bismillah Khan, another wicket. The match-turning over. Good bumper on middle and leg, Bismillah goes for a pull but the ball hurries onto him and he ends up skewing it in the air. Rizwan runs around towards short fine leg and takes it nicely. Both set men gone and this game is open.. 101/3
18.5 to Anwar Ali, gone. What an important wicket. Will it matter though because Nabi is back on strike? Another slower ball on off, hit away into the air to long-on. Umar Akmal takes a quality, pressure catch. This pendulum is swinging again. 186/8
