Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Imran Farhat, 2.1 ov), 2-74 (Mohammad Hafeez, 14.4 ov), 3-126 (Younis Khan, 24.4 ov), 4-129 (Shoaib Malik, 25.5 ov), 5-189 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 39.3 ov), 6-209 (Umar Akmal, 44.1 ov), 7-245 (Adnan Akmal, 49.4 ov)
2.1 to Imran Farhat, Farhat's return to international cricket has lasted two balls. It has ended through a poor shot. This is short, not too wide, but he cuts away from the body. Slight movement away, slight extra bounce, the edge taken. Price and Mpofu get into their unique dancing celebrations where they knock each other's heels. 1/1
44.1 to Umar Akmal, a wicket first ball for Mpofu Khan! He digs this in short, not much venom behind it, and Umar goes for the pull, only managing to hit it as far as midwicket's throat. Not the greatest wicket Mpofu has got, but a big one in the context of this game. Powerplay will be taken next over, and they have sent back the dangerous Umar. 209/6
39.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah has one of his famous brain freeze movements. Tries the reverse sweep. Not the subtle one where you change the bat face at the last movement. He jumps across the crease, almost as if playing a switch hit, and then changes stance. Price bowls full and straight, beats the bat, and hits him dead in front. 189/5
49.4 to Adnan Akmal, tries the trusted big reverse-sweep, Price stays full and straight, and he top-edges this low full toss to point. Second wicket for Price, both off reverse-sweeps. Says something about him: he makes you do these low-percentage things. 245/7
14.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, the sweep and that square leg fielder get the better of Hafeez. All day Hafeez has kept sweeping straight to that man. This time he fails to keep it down, and Sibanda takes a sharp catch at square leg. 74/2
25.5 to Shoaib Malik, Taibu has pulled off a blinder, and another comeback man has failed! This will rad as a wicket for the bowler, but it is all down to Taibu. He saw this ball sliding down leg, and moved exceptionally early in anticipation. Malik got a thick edge down the leg side, and Taibu flew across to his left to pouch this one-handed. Smart and athletic both at the same time. 129/4

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Chamu Chibhabha, 2.3 ov), 2-53 (Hamilton Masakadza, 13.1 ov), 3-114 (Vusi Sibanda, 26.3 ov), 4-174 (Tatenda Taibu, 40.3 ov), 5-196 (Malcolm Waller, 43.2 ov), 6-233 (Brendan Taylor, 48.4 ov), 7-241 (Elton Chigumbura, 49.5 ov)
2.3 to CJ Chibhabha, Too good. Simply too good. Can't do too much about these deliveries. Would have got some of the greats of the game out. He goes wide of the crease, pitches this short of a length, on middle and off, Chibhabha plays the angle, and then the off-cut comes into the play. It moves away slightly, hits the top of off. Just doff your hat, and walk off, Justice. 5/1
43.2 to MN Waller, Ajmal! Doosra, sharp spitting doosra. Short of a length, outside off, spins away, Waller doesn't know what to do. Leaves the bat handing. The leading edge is taken. Lobs off to cover-point. 196/5
26.3 to V Sibanda, What a way to go! Sibanda is caught-and-bowled and bat-pad! To the insult he has added an injury! He gives this length ball some humpty, and the thick inside edge hits his back pad, and it lobs off to Cheema who delightfully completes a simple catch. Sibanda is on the ground, that ball might have hit his knee. He has to be helped off the pitch. The medical support carry his gloves and pads for him as he hobbles off. 114/3
40.3 to T Taibu, Slower ball! Taibu is gone. He clears the front leg and tries the big slog. Done in by the slowness. The top edge rests with Younis at long-off. Will this turn the match towards Pakistan?. 174/4
48.4 to BRM Taylor, Cheema strikes! What a time for the deutant to take this wicket! Taylor has left Zimbabwe 200 metres short of finishing this half-marathon. This is a length ball again, Taylor looks to slog it, but it perhaps surprised by the quickness of it off the surface. Top-edges. Tanvir runs to his left from midwicket to complete a simple catch. Over to you Elton. 233/6
13.1 to H Masakadza, Hafeez! Hafeez looks innocuous when compared to Ajmal, but he is also getting them wickets! Masakadza moves too far across and tries to play this offbreak square as opposed to down the ground. Misses, and is hit in front of middle. Anybody's guess if this would have hit leg, but by moving across and looking to play across the line, he has made it look much worse. 53/2
