TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.60)152/5
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Kumar Sangakkara, 0.1 ov), 2-3 (Ahmed Shehzad, 1.5 ov), 3-41 (Sohail Tanvir, 6.5 ov), 4-81 (Sohaib Maqsood, 12.4 ov), 5-119 (Ross Whiteley, 17.2 ov)
0.1 to KC Sangakkara, gone first ball and this is a simple chip to short midwicket. Sangakkara can't believe what he's done. Looked to turn it gently but couldn't keep it down. A hint of grip for Nawaz and he's struck early. Golden duck for the Sri Lankan legend.. 0/1
1.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, looks to flay this away from the body through point but is beaten by the late away movement. Oh, hello. Actually, Sarfraz has opted to review the decision. He was super confident but there's no trace of a nick on replay. The biggest hint of this is the fact that the seam position doesn't change at all even after it has passed the bat. But, but but there is a tiny little spike on ultra edge . Wonder if it is enough to overturn. It's a feather if ever there was one and they've decided to give this out. Brave decision to review and it has paid off. You couldn't have heard that surely, but Shehzad will have to walk back. Faintest of faint edges. . 3/2
17.2 to RA Whiteley, taken at mid-off. Full outside off, Whiteley can't make adequate contact with an attempted swat. The timing is so bad that it lobs to mid-off. Decent cameo from Whiteley.. 119/5
12.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, plumb in front. Maqsood walked across, looking to heave the ball. But it was quick and accurate, far too good for Maqsood was very late on the stroke. Struck him in front of off and middle, plumb!. 81/4
6.5 to Sohail Tanvir, full inswinging delivery that beats Tanvir's wild swing and cannons into the stumps. Watson dropped him at slip a while ago but has his man with a superb delivery. End of a flashy cameo. 41/3

TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 7.86)156/8
Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Shane Watson, 6.4 ov), 2-54 (Asad Shafiq, 8.3 ov), 3-62 (Kevin Pietersen, 10.2 ov), 4-90 (Rameez Raja, 13.3 ov), 5-114 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 16.2 ov), 6-118 (Rilee Rossouw, 16.6 ov), 7-144 (Mohammad Nawaz, 18.4 ov), 8-144 (Anwar Ali, 18.6 ov)
13.3 to Rameez Raja, goes through him! Another slider, misread and the ball goes through to clatter into middle and leg stumps. The flipper, it may have been, Rameez brings the ball down too late. The ball has lots of time en route to the stumps.. 90/4
6.4 to SR Watson, fetches this pull from outside off but can only hit it as far as the deep square leg fielder. Watson was chancing his luck with the bigger boundary but couldn't quite get the timing as he got this high on the bat. Umar Gul announces himself.. 48/1
8.3 to Asad Shafiq, now he has a second wicket in two overs. Shafiq has been consumed by a rush of blood. Advanced to go over cover but ended up slicing this to third man. Gave himself too much room.. 54/2
16.2 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, has he taken that? What is the soft signal? The fielder says he is not sure. Did he take the juggle? The soft signal is out this time. This is absurd, he went to the leg umpire, asked him if he saw it, he wasn't sure so did he just guess? But that's an amazing effort, a shortish delivery outside off is carved away towards Masood at backward point, who leaps up with one hand. The ball pops out, but Masood is in control of the parry as he is falling over. But is it touching the ground? it's mighty close again, I can't see a clear decision either way. And so the TV umpire may not have enough evidence to overturn that. One hand was underneath the ball, the other hand tries to cup the ball. It's the right decision from the TV umpire: not enough evidence to overturn the soft signal. But the soft signal is at it again, deciding decisions based on uncertainty (if it was an uncertain soft signal that is).. 114/5
16.6 to RR Rossouw, he picks the slower ball this time but heaves the ball into the fielder's hands at deep square leg. Waits for it, but is a bit too eager. No timing, no power, an easy catch.. 118/6
18.4 to Mohammad Nawaz, that is some pretty awful batting. A length delivery around off, Nawaz hits the ball down to Pollard at long-on. He picked him out to perfection, what was he even trying to do? That is a five-for for Umar Gul, what a display this has been.. 144/7
18.6 to Anwar Ali, Umar Gul has six wickets. This match is turning one way, then the other, then the other. In the end, it comes down the last over. A short delivery down leg, a slower delivery, pulled away with bad timing to short fine leg. He was too early through the shot. Gul finishes with 6 for 24, he has passed 200 T20 wickets. . 144/8
10.2 to KP Pietersen, the reverse sweep, KP misses and is outta here! He looks for a wild, out-of-the-blue reverse sweep, and misses. Struck in front and the umpire gives him! It's one of those dismissals, did that pitch in line? Did it patter where it pitched because he was looking for that switch hit-type shot. There's no review from KP, although there should have been. Replays indicate Malik had overstepped too, wow. In the days where everything is checked .... 62/3
