10.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, back of a length down leg, Shehzad is hurried through his pull. A big appeal from Akmal as he collects, forcing McCullum to go to the third umpire, a review. A loud noise as the ball passes bat, confirmed by UltraEdge, so a good review from Lahore. That is one way to go, a strangle down the leg side.. 88/1
16.5 to KC Sangakkara, a short delivery this time, the change in length has worked. A bouncer down leg hurries Sangakkara through his pull, all he manages is a pull into the hands of long-on. Could not get any timing behind that. 147/3
Yasir Shah402716.7571100
11.3 to Sohaib Maqsood, Maqsood's stuttering innings ends early. He did not read that, it was the quick googly. Maqsood ran down to the pitch, but the wily Yasir shortens the length, creates a big gap between bat and pad. The ball finds that gap and then has a free path to hit off stump.. 93/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Sohail Tanvir302608.6661120
Mohammad Irfan401924.75132000
3.5 to SP Narine, taken at third man. He sees a short and wide delivery and he takes it on - as his job as pinch hitter demands he does - but the extra bounce helps the ball secure a top edge. 32/1
5.2 to BB McCullum, beautiful work at third man again! Tanvir is down there, backpedalling to the rope, standing virtually on top of it as he takes the coolest catch to dismiss the opposition captain. Baz does well, trying to ramp a short ball on middle over the boundary. Just doesn't get enough on it. 40/2
Junaid Khan302438.0091200
16.3 to Yasir Shah, top-edge, settles safely in the keeper's hands, and Lahore are collapsing badly. Good thinking from Junaid to go for the bouncer again. It ends up too quick, and it rises too high for the lower-order batsman to deal with. 136/7
16.4 to CS Delport, that's the kindest treatment given to a leg-stump full toss in the history of cricket. Addresses it to deep midwicket where Shehzad doesn't even have to move.. 136/8
16.5 to Raza Hasan, hat-trick! Junaid Khan has a hat-trick! The crowd goes wild. The great Wasim Akram is on his feet. And the batsman is walking off having pulled a short ball straight to short midwicket. 136/9
Shoaib Malik1011011.0010100
Imran Tahir3.202738.1081210
15.2 to Sohail Akhtar, flipper! Tahir is a big gun in T20s and he shows it, taking out the big-hitting Akhtar with simply a straight ball aimed at the top of off stump. The batsman sets up to cut, believing it to be a legbreak that would spin away from him. By the time he wises up, his stumps are gone. 133/5
15.6 to Aamer Yamin, plays back to a very very full ball. Also plays right across the line. And all that means his stumps are sitting ducks. All Tahir has to do is line it up just right. 135/6
17.2 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, slaps it straight to cover and Multan win their second game in a row!. 136/10
Kieron Pollard302829.3373110
12.3 to Umar Akmal, taken at long-on! There is plenty of power in the shot, but he picks the fielder out to perfection. Length ball, in the slot to disappear out of the ground. Just that it doesn't and Pollard is plenty pleased with that. Pulls out an imaginary notebook, scribbles something on it, tears the piece of paper and throws it away. 105/3
14.6 to Fakhar Zaman, that's an outrageous catch by Shehzad! And Pollard runs right up to him and lifts him clean off his feet! The bowler does his bit to throw the set batsman off guard, pitching the ball up, but taking all the pace off and slanting it wide as well. That means if Zaman goes after it, he will more than likely mistime the shot. And he does. It skews off the outside edge. it seems like it will drop short of Shehzad racing up from the sweeper cover boundary, but he puts in a last-gasp dive and comes up with the ball clutched in both hands. Lets out a primal roar as well, throwing his head back. This is a game-changing moment. 132/4
