Fall of wickets: 1-134 (Saim Ayub, 11.4 ov), 2-144 (Babar Azam, 12.4 ov), 3-166 (Rovman Powell, 14.1 ov), 4-173 (Mohammad Haris, 14.4 ov), 5-184 (Haseebullah Khan, 16.3 ov), 6-235 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 19.4 ov)
19.4 to T Kohler-Cadmore, Pollard with the catch of the tournament pulling off a one-handed stunner at long-off and somehow stays inside the rope! Full in the slot on fourth stump, TKC drives this aiming to clear the long-off rope but Pollard leaps up like a wide receiver in the corner of the end zone and snags onto this one-handed almost backhanded. The ball boy behind him on the boundary had turned away wincing having no faith Pollard would catch this and it was going to hit the ball boy in the body. Oh ye of little faith! Pollard latches on, then flicks it up in the air to himself before going over the rope, then comes back in to reestablish himself in the field of play before taking it again on the second effort before doing a forward somersault celebration.. 235/6
11.4 to Saim Ayub, quicker ball from Usama lands too short on fourth stump, Ayub pulls this a mile high but doesn't get the distance and picks out the man at deep midwicket. Abbas Afridi takes a chest height catch three yards in from the rope.. 134/1
12.4 to Babar Azam, bouncer on fifth stump, Babar goes to pull this through the leg side but instead gets a thin top edge through to Rizwan at head height.. 144/2
14.1 to R Powell, rib high full toss on middle, pulls this to deep square leg and a chest high catch is taken. Rovman is convinced this was a no ball on height and runs a single. The catch is relayed in quickly without celebration. The umpires did not call a no ball on field. It has been referred to the third umpire. This is extremely tight. Live it looked too high and the side on replays are very marginal. It was called legal on field and stays out. Rovman is fuming. I agree with him on this occasion. Having said that, it was a meatball that should have gone for six.. 166/3
14.4 to Mohammad Haris, slower length ball on the wide guideline, slaps this flat to the cover sweeper and an easy catch is taken at waist height two yards in from the rope.. 173/4
16.3 to Haseebullah Khan, full on sixth stump, shovels a drive high to wide long-off where Pollard is standing like a skyscraper to block this from reaching the rope. He reaches up and takes a catch high above his head while backpedaling two steps and keeps his balance to stay inside the rope by a few inches. Just in case, he flicks the ball up to himself to make sure he doesn't stumble over and retakes the self relay several yards inside the rope.. 184/5

2.3 to Shan Masood, bullseye! Zings this in full and quick on off stump, Masood backs away from leg stump going for a big heave but misses and off stump is knocked back halfway up.. 28/2
1.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, fullish length ball on fourth stump, tries to heave this over midwicket and a top edge swirls to deep fine leg. It's a steepler and the fielder shuffles back and forth a few times but Haris finally settles under this to hold on reaching in front of his body at waist height.. 8/1
9.4 to KA Pollard, short on the stumps, top edges a pull to deep backward square leg and Omarzai Azmatullah runs in 15 yards from the rope before settling his feet to take this very safely reaching to his left at chest height.. 127/3
11.3 to TH David, drag on! Length ball on sixth stump, David winds up for a front foot pull but bottom edges this onto off stump. Omarzai lets out an almighty roar. The bowlers aren't totally destroyed on this wicket just yet.. 148/4
18.3 to RR Rossouw, length ball with pace on angled across sixth stump, Rossouw miscues a pull off the toe of the bat skying this to long-on and a superb catch is taking by TKC charging 20 yards to his right along the rope from long-on and dives to latch onto this 5 yards inside the rope.. 227/6
16.2 to Khushdil Shah, fullish length ball on the stumps, slogs this trying to clear deep midwicket but gets more of a top edge and sails to Haris backpedaling to take this at head height two yards inside the rope.. 206/5
