3.4 to LMP Simmons, in the aiiir and cover settles under it. A skier that's snaffled by Viljoen. A short of good length delivery that Simmons tries to pull and he has to drag it from outside off and as a result finds the bottom part of the bat. 21/1
16.6 to JL Denly, ah, Denly's picked a pretty lousy delivery to get out to. A short ball, Denly pulls and he swings around with force but had to fetch it from outside off. Ends up dragging it to Imran Tahir at deep backward square leg who moves forward and snaffles it. Ends the highest partnership of this year's tournament. 139/2
18.3 to Babar Azam, has that been caught? Shehzad with a dive at deep midwicket and a smart catch. He's claiming the catch but the umpires are going to refer this upstairs. A short of a length delivery that's been pulled away and Shehzad runs to his right, gathers it with both hands, and gets down with the momentum as he completes the catch. Moves towards the ropes slightly and ends up inches before the boundary. Seems clean. The ball boy behind him is very enthusiastically raising his finger. He had the best real-time view, to be fair. And the TV umpire flashes a big red OUT. 169/3

Fall of wickets: 1-41 (Kumar Sangakkara, 4.3 ov), 2-52 (Sohaib Maqsood, 5.4 ov), 3-53 (Ahmed Shehzad, 6.2 ov), 4-58 (Kieron Pollard, 7.2 ov), 5-76 (Saif Badar, 9.5 ov), 6-79 (Shoaib Malik, 11.2 ov), 7-86 (Hardus Viljoen, 12.5 ov), 8-98 (Imran Tahir, 15.4 ov), 9-99 (Junaid Khan, 16.1 ov), 10-125 (Mohammad Irfan, 19.4 ov)
6.2 to Ahmed Shehzad, that's the sweetest way to gift a wicket. Steps blindly down the track without making an effort to suss out the length. Credit to the bowler for flighting it, but pre-meditated from Shehzad who ends up awkwardly attempting to defend at it. Misses and the keeper does the rest. 53/3
15.4 to Imran Tahir, dipping sharply outside off, ends up being a yorker, Tahir jams the bat down and gets an inside edge before the ball takes out the stumps. 98/8
5.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, big top-edge on the pull. Does not make an effort to get behind the line and ends up having to drag it. Three fielder converge on it around the catch and Babar yells 'mine'!. 52/2
4.3 to KC Sangakkara, tries to force the pace and nicks off. Angled across him again and Sanga skips down the track and ends up getting further away from it. Thick outside edge, taken by the keeper. 41/1
16.1 to Junaid Khan, oh, what a catch! Sharp reflex action from Denly. A bit of a juggle but he takes it on the second attempt. Length ball, angled in sharply and Junaid tries to heave it. Gets it no further than the man at short midwicket. 99/9
7.2 to KA Pollard, what a delivery! That's a beauty from Afridi. The crowd favourite with the ball of the match. Runs in from wide of the crease and slides it in towards leg stump, gets it to turn and opens him up before it crashes into off-stump. 58/4
9.5 to Saif Badar, Afridi showing who's the boss! Strikes very next ball. It's the slider again, the one that comes on with the arm. Not picked by Badar who opens the face for a cut and ends up losing his stumps as the ball crashes into middle. And did Afridi just point him towards the dressing room? Seemed like it. You're not supposed to do that, of course. 76/5
11.2 to Shoaib Malik, Afridi strikes again! And follows up with his trademark celebration. The fans never get tired of seeing that, do they? Another slider, Malik came down the track looking fora heave and the ball's too close to his liking and to make any sort of connection. Bang into the stumps. It's all coming crashing down rather rapidly for the Sultans. And Afridi's having a field day. 79/6
