BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Zaheer Khan905015.55285110
49.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, caught! Misbah tries to hit Zaheer over the straight boundary, he clears his front foot out of the way to make room and lofts it, he hasn't timed it well and Harbhajan runs to his right from long-off and takes a well-judged catch on the run. 233/6
RP Singh814205.25286010
Irfan Pathan824515.62246010
10.1 to Kamran Akmal, Pathan strikes! The ball was pitched on leg and middle stump and it went straight through to Akmal who tried to pull, it was short and came slowly off the pitch, completely beating Akmal, he got hit on the pad in front of off and middle and Gould sends him on his way, replays show that the ball might have pitched outside leg stump .... 44/1
Harbhajan Singh1002912.90360010
29.5 to Younis Khan, caught in the deep! Younis comes down the track and tries to clear the long-on boundary, he didn't time it well enough and hit it straight to Pathan on the boundary who takes a simple catch, Younis falls at a crucial time. 104/3
Murali Kartik1003603.60340000
Sachin Tendulkar503226.40103010
38.5 to Shahid Afridi, stumped! Afridi tries to charge Tendulkar and make room to hit over the off side by backing towards leg, Tendulkar once again sees him coming and bowls it quicker and outside off stump, the ball spins away from Afridi, beats the outside edge of his bat and Dhoni whips off the bails with Afridi stranded. 163/4
40.2 to Shoaib Malik, caught in the deep! Tendulkar bowls a nice juicy full toss which really should have been dispatched over the boundary, instead Malik gets his front foot out of the way and pulls the ball straight to Gambhir on the deep midwicket boundary, Tendulkar gets lucky with a loose ball. 165/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shoaib Akhtar805226.50289030
2.5 to SR Tendulkar, lbw! The slower ball has Tendulkar beaten, he moved across his stumps and tried to flick through the leg side, he missed and was hit on the knee roll in front of the stumps, the umpire took his time but eventually sent Tendulkar on his way, that was pretty plumb. 14/1
44.1 to MS Dhoni, and he strikes straight away! Shoaib pitches one on a good length outside off stump, Dhoni drives away from his body and gets a thick edge through to Akmal who takes the catch this time, it was flying at considerable speed and the light isn't the best so he did well to hold on to it. 225/5
Umar Gul722603.71344110
Iftikhar Anjum805006.25227000
Shahid Afridi1003413.40301010
20.6 to G Gambhir, bowled him! Gambhir doesn't know what's happened! Afridi slips in the offbreak, pitching it outside leg stump, Gambhir moves across his stumps and tries to play it towards midwicket, he misses and the ball spins in to hit leg stump, huge wicket for Pakistan. 113/3
Abdur Rehman1015415.40388110
42.6 to Yuvraj Singh, caught in the deep! Yuvraj gets down on one knee and slog sweeps Rehman, looking to clear the deep backward square leg boundary, he got a bit of a top edge that flew straight to fine leg where Afridi takes an easy catch. 218/4
