TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 5.69)113
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Kumar Sangakkara, 2.1 ov), 2-15 (Darren Bravo, 3.5 ov), 3-19 (Sohaib Maqsood, 5.2 ov), 4-31 (Ahmed Shehzad, 8.2 ov), 5-85 (Kieron Pollard, 14.4 ov), 6-95 (Shoaib Malik, 16.2 ov), 7-105 (Saif Badar, 17.5 ov), 8-108 (Sohail Tanvir, 18.5 ov), 9-109 (Imran Tahir, 19.1 ov), 10-113 (Mohammad Irfan, 19.5 ov)
2.1 to KC Sangakkara, Raees has his man now. Asif Ali bends low and makes no mistake this time at first slip. Full and Raees explores the channel outside off, finds movement off the pitch, Sanga hangs his bat out and snicks it behind. Looks like the rain has juiced up the pitch. Rare failure for Sanga. 8/1
17.5 to Saif Badar, 112.4ks dipping full-toss, foxes the batsman, and leaves the stumps in a mess. Slower delivery from the back of the hand, look at the sharp dip on the bat. Badar aims to swing across the line but misread the change up. Even if he had read it, I suspect he would have hit it. Great skill from Raees: he can swing the new ball, get it to skid off the pitch, bowl yorkers and slower ones. Gun T20 bolwer. 105/7
19.1 to Imran Tahir, knocked 'em over. Yorker on the leg stump, Tahir backs away, swings wildly, and misses. Excellent T20 bowling from Raees. 109/9
3.5 to DM Bravo, Sami bounces out Bravo and lets out a big roar. Banged in short at the shoulder, angling away, cramps up Bravo for room. The batsman loses his shape and falls over. The resultant top edge is snaffled by Finn diving forward from short fine leg. The England quick seemed to have misjudged it but then moved in and to his right to recover. 15/2
5.2 to Sohaib Maqsood, Flapped into the lap of Raaes at mid-on. Good length, and nipping away outside off, Maqsood shapes to slug it over midwicket. Instead, he pops a leading edge to Raees. Sami is having a ball in Dubai. 19/3
8.2 to Ahmed Shehzad, Shehzad has been put out of his misery by Finn. Back of a length and climbing onto the hips, Shehzad pulls but can't keep it down. He hits it straight to deep fine leg. A soft innings meet a soft end. 31/4
14.4 to KA Pollard, Russell hits back to trap Pollard. It looks pretty adjacent but Pollard asks for a review. This was the change-up offcutter, grips in the surface, and hits the front pad as Pollard hangs back and plays around it. The on-field out decision is vindicated. The tracker returns three reds. Pollard, however, has given this innings a leg-up. 85/5
16.2 to Shoaib Malik, short, wide, possibly an offcutter, nailed straight to backward point. You just can't get it past Shadab - one of the best fielders in the world. Russel has his hands aloft and celebrates. Malik cuts hard but can't keep it down. He had stabilised Multan's innings, who will finish it now?. 95/6

TOTAL17.4 Ov (RR: 6.62)117/5
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Luke Ronchi, 0.3 ov), 2-37 (Sahibzada Farhan, 4.2 ov), 3-47 (Chadwick Walton, 7.3 ov), 4-63 (Asif Ali, 10.2 ov), 5-63 (Andre Russell, 10.3 ov)
0.3 to L Ronchi, Irfan generates extra bounce and away movement to have Ronchi nicking off. Kicks up from a back of a length outside off and nips away, Ronchi wafts with no feet and tickles it behind. Pollard hangs onto a chest-high catch. Perfect start for Multan. 0/1
4.2 to Sahibzada Farhan, Tahir sets off on a celebratory stint. Catch him if you can. Quicker one from Tahir, full and fizzes in, then turns away slightly to beat the outside edge and clatter into off stump. Tahir provides Multan with the breakthrough. 37/2
10.2 to Asif Ali, shorter and spins away outside off - legbreak - Tahir finds extra bounce and has Ali feathering it behind. Sanga rides the bounce and takes it smartly. 63/4
10.3 to AD Russell, Tahir sets off on back-to-back celebratory sprints. He has turned the chase. This was another full wrong'un, Russell does not pick the variation - it breaks back in sharply - Russell has a short stride and plays outside the line for the legbreak. He is hit below the knee-roll on the front pad in line with middle. No bat involved, Ultraedge defects nothing. But was it spinning down leg? The tracker returns umpire's call on leg stump. Tahir claims the big wicket of Russell and is on a hat-trick. Scenes in Dubai. 63/5
7.3 to CAK Walton, pitched up and angling away just outside off, draws Walton forward to drive. The batsman drives with a slicing finish and finds Shehzad at backward point. 47/3
