15.3 to Sohaib Maqsood, caught behind that one turned a fair way, pitched on middle on a length and broke away, took his outside edge when he was going for the big slog over cow corner, and a good take by the keeper Ronchi. 158/3
12.2 to Imam-ul-Haq, caught by the keeper despite almost colliding with short third man went for an ugly swipe across the line, but Delport's lack of pace has worked so far and the batsman wanted to hit it too hard. He ends up top-edging it behind him. The keeper runs to his left, and short third man runs forward, they sort of collide, but the keeper holds on. Much needed wicket, but a great knock by Imam. 135/1
12.6 to Kamran Akmal, caught on the deep midwicket boundary Delport has got both openers in one over, both batting on quickfire half-centuries. This was slower than his normal deliveries too, pushed wide of off stump. Kamran went for another of his slog-sweeps, but couldn't time it. Got a fair bit of height, but not enough distance, and it went straight into deep midwicket's hands. End of a fine innings. 138/2

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.30)166/9
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Luke Ronchi, 2.2 ov), 2-26 (Alex Hales, 3.4 ov), 3-89 (Cameron Delport, 9.5 ov), 4-94 (Asif Ali, 10.3 ov), 5-105 (Chadwick Walton, 11.6 ov), 6-151 (Hussain Talat, 15.6 ov), 7-152 (Faheem Ashraf, 17.1 ov), 8-154 (Mohammad Sami, 17.4 ov), 9-155 (Shadab Khan, 18.2 ov)
2.2 to L Ronchi, caught by Sammy at cover He was backing away again and wanted to smash it through the offside, but Hasan had followed him and the ball only took the splice and bobbed up in the air for an easy catch. A steep required rate will do that to you - make you play shots you otherwise might not have. 24/1
9.5 to CS Delport, the pressure has consumed Delport He was struggling to get it away, and looking to swat across the line. This one was back of a length, came in a bit from outside off and bounced more than Delport expected. He wanted to pull it to midwicket, ends up with a top edge to mid-on, where Jordan pouches an easy catch. 89/3
15.6 to Hussain Talat, caught at long-on by Pollard Big swing across to the leg side, but he doesn't have the distance. Taken at long on. 151/6
11.6 to CAK Walton, picks out the man at deep midwicket Walton had to go for it, but he's been outfoxed by the bowler here. Slower ball, slightly back of a length outside off. The length made Walton go for the pull, but the pace meant he was too early into the shot, and ends up hitting it down deep midwicket's throat. That's surely curtains for Islamabad. Good catch too, with Gul running in because it was hit flat and sliding in front to take the catch. 105/5
3.4 to AD Hales, leading edge caught by Pollard Jordan gets his fellow Englishman. That's another good length delivery at pace. Hales clears his leg to swipe it over cow corner but gets a leading edge, and Pollard isn't going to drop those dollies inside the circle. 26/2
17.1 to Faheem Ashraf, taken at deep midwicket full ball on the stumps, and he picked up nicely off his toes, but sent it in the air and straight to the fielder. Faheem's resistance comes to an end, and so do any faint hopes Islamabad may have had. 152/7
17.4 to Mohammad Sami, well timed, but straight to Pollard at long-on. Full ball on off, and this was hit straight back over the bowler, pleasing follow through and shape - but not enough power. Pollard didn't move a millimetre, just stayed where he was and cupped the ball around head high. 154/8
18.2 to Shadab Khan, this is all ending quickly. Shadab's miserable stay comes to an end with a spooned catch to cover. He goes for a duck, having not managed to play a single convincing shot in his stay. This was a full ball, and he wanted to go straighter, but couldn't connect well at all. 155/9
10.3 to Asif Ali, he's nicked him behind Pollard was thought of as the 'weak link' in today's attack, but he's made a key strike. Asif Ali can hit them big, but he won't be doing that today. Back of a length on off stump, this was more at Pollard's normal pace and Asif was a touch too early into the shot. Ends up feathering a top edge that has been pouched safely.. 94/4
