Shaheen Shah Afridi403919.7573210
19.6 to AL Phehlukwayo, given, and it'll stay a dot ball even if Phehlukwayo's review goes in his favour. Another yorker, and he steps across and tries to scoop it towards fine leg. Hits the front boot right in front of the stumps after he spins fully around to play the shot, and that's plumb. No bat on it, that was the only thing that could have saved him. They ran a leg bye, but it wouldn't count even if it was not-out, because the ball is dead the moment the umpire makes his decision. Ball-tracking is taking its time to confirm this... yup, smashing the middle stump a third of the way up. 203/5
Mohammad Nawaz403829.5080400
10.4 to AK Markram, bowled him, and that's a big breakthrough for Pakistan. Markram almost yorks himself there. Flat, full and quick, angling into the stumps, and it's too full for the sweep. Markram ends up going over the top of the ball, and it's through him before he completes his stroke. 108/1
14.1 to JN Malan, and he gets one of them. Another quick, full one, speared in towards leg stump. It may have been a response to Malan premeditating the reverse-sweep, and he can't really swing his bat fully through the shot because of the pace on the ball. Ends up playing a sort of reverse lap, and ends up spooning it straight to short third man. 143/3
Hasan Ali4047111.7576200
16.4 to H Klaasen, bowled him, gets through him with the off-stump yorker. Was looking to make room and carve it away through point, but he couldn't quite make contact. 164/4
Haris Rauf4040010.0032200
Faheem Ashraf403719.2555000
13.2 to GF Linde, bowled him. Takes the pace off, looks like the offcutter, and Linde chops on while trying to pull. He's through his shot a touch too early, and all he can manage is a bottom edge. 141/2

17.4 to Babar Azam, bouncer outside off, and Pakistan won't win this by ten wickets. Babar falls for 122, the end of an utterly magical innings. Reaches out to try and ramp it over the keeper, only manages a faint edge through to the keeper. 197/1
