BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Hasan Ali401614.00121000
19.6 to Sohail Tanvir, miscues it high, high, high into the night sky. Hasan Ali settles underneath it, and takes a tumbling catch off his own bowling. He falls to the deck and then brushes either shoulder after jumping to his feet to celebrate a fine bowling performance as though it's no big deal. Offcutter on a length, and Tanvir was through his shot early. 150/8
Faheem Ashraf302719.0082210
1.5 to CA Lynn, he strikes, and Lynn goes early! Something of an agricultural shot, made room and tried to clear cover-point. Extra bounce does him, though, and the upper edge carries through to the keeper for a simple catch. 4/1
Mohammad Wasim402937.2594000
11.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, gone, Wasim strikes again. That will frustrate Maqsood, it was in the slot, there to be hit, and the batsman manages to find the fielder at cow corner. Doesn't really find the middle of the bat.. 94/4
18.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, gottim! Wasim clears Rizwan up! Tiiiiimber! Mohammad Wasim goes wide on the crease, and spears in a yorker. It's very full, with the seam angling in towards the leg side - superb seam position. Rizwan's timing has been way off for the last five overs or so, and he can't get his bat down on this. It sends off stump flying and Wasim has got the big wicket. 140/6
18.5 to Shahid Afridi, never change, Afridi. Not that you were likely to. Wide outside off stump on a length, and Afridi tries to send this 150 metres over midwicket as he shimmies down. It balloons up into the night sky, nestling in the hands of Shadab Khan on the edge of the inner ring at cover. Short and sweet. 140/7
Lewis Gregory403127.7583100
7.1 to JM Vince, Vince falls, finally! It's Faheem , would you believe it! Just after he had put him down last over, Faheem runs in from third man and takes a clean catch to remove Vince. Could never truly get going, and this is a huge blow for Sultans. 52/2
13.4 to Khushdil Shah, banged into pitch, skied towards long-on and Hales takes the catch! Khushdil goes. Short ball, up towards Khushdil's shoulder. He swats at the pull, mis-timing it, and picks out Hales, who takes a sharp catch running round to his left at long-on. Made it look very easy. 108/5
Zafar Gohar1013013.0011100
Shadab Khan403318.25112200
10.4 to RR Rossouw, Shadab strikes back! thick edge as he tried to open the face off the bat, loops up and short third has a straightforward catch! Shadab is pumped up, and the South African looks mighty disgusted with himself. 87/3

Carlos Brathwaite402325.75123010
5.2 to Shadab Khan, and Shadab departs. This had been on the cards from the moment Shadab walked out. Got underneath a shorter delivery to try and loft that over midwicket, but got more height than distance on it, and the boundary fielder takes a simple catch. 43/2
15.6 to Faheem Ashraf, It just had to be. Faheem scoops it up to Afridi again, and this time it's a regulation catch. He makes no mistake and then smashes the ball back into the ground in frustration. Multan were desperate for that one. 117/7
Shahid Afridi402426.00131110
6.6 to AD Hales, cleans him up, what a delivery! Almost a flipper, that. Pitches in that corridor of uncertainty, Hales had no clue whether to move forward or back. It fizzes on after landing and crashes into middle stump. Afridi celebrates as you know he does, and the evergreen allrounder has made a huge impact on this game. 55/3
10.1 to Asif Ali, and Afridi strikes again, because of course he does! That was in the slot for Asif to try his favourite shot, aslog down to long-on, but as happens a touch too frequently with him, he finds the man stationed there instead of the rope behind him. 73/4
Khushdil Shah10414.0020000
11.1 to Hussain Talat, and another wicket, Islamabad are crumbling here. Talat went for a slog over cow corner, deciding to attack Khushdil first ball. That's a very canny bowling change, and it's got the two-time champions reeling. 74/6
