0.5 to Saim Ayub, Stirling with a stunner at backward point! On the 10th anniversary of KOB's epic knock against England, another Irishman creating fresh memories today by reaching up high to his right to intercept a loose drive with a spectacular grab. Similar length to the previous ball to encourage a drive on about sixth stump, not much footwork and can't get to the pitch to keep this down, it flies off the edge and Stirling reads it well moving to his right and reaches high above his head on his tippy toes to claim it.. 7/1
3.3 to F du Plessis, good length ball on off, Faf went way too far across and misses a flick to the leg side, huge appeal from Hasan is upheld after a long ponder by the umpire. It looked pretty out live, hitting him in line with off. But Faf appeals anyway. The only doubt appeared to be whether or not he was hit in line with the stumps or contact was made outside off. Sure enough he's hit in line with middle more than off stump and a third red lights up with the projection KO'ing leg stump. Gladiators lose a review. . 27/3
2.1 to CS Delport, the change is justified! Fullish length on middle stump, Delport backs away from leg stump trying to heave this down the ground and misses playing inside the line, off stump is knocked out.. 21/2
5.5 to Azam Khan, short ball brings a wicket! Wasn't even a proper bouncer. Really sat up wide outside off, Azam tried to slap it over the ring but fails miserably as the ball just flutters up gently off his bat. After being on the front foot all innings, first time he was tested on the back foot he can't handle it and a simple catch is taken on the ring at extra cover.. 41/4
16.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, full, swing and a miss from Sarfaraz. Crashes into his pads, and the umpire gives it! Immediate review, it may just be sliding down leg. It isn't! It's hitting the stumps, and Sarfaraz is gone. 134/6
9.5 to BCJ Cutting, absolutely glorious. A bit of flight around the off stump line draws him out of his crease, and the spin beats him. Quick work by Rohail Nazir behind the stumps and that's goodbye for Cutting. 71/5

Fall of wickets: 1-76 (Alex Hales, 5.5 ov), 2-93 (Paul Stirling, 9.3 ov), 3-130 (Rohail Nazir, 14.3 ov), 4-143 (Shadab Khan, 16.1 ov)
14.3 to Rohail Nazir, the short ball plan finally comes off for Steyn! The legend refused to target the stumps since his opening over and kept on teasing the batsmen short and very wide forcing them to play shots they didn't want to according to the set field. Rohail tries to smash another short and very wide ball over extra cover but only manages to scuff it to the man on the ring for a very simple catch at head height.. 130/3
16.1 to Shadab Khan, Nawaz takes a steepling swirler to make up for Cutting's earlier drop off Hasnain! Length ball on the stumps, Shadab tries to flick this over midwicket, top edge goes straight up over the pitch. Nawaz calls off the bowler as gravity takes it hurtling back to earth at a serious pace. He gets his body behind the ball before putting his hands in front of his face to take this while tumbling backward. Theatrical catch but a superb effort for how high that ball went into the air.. 143/4
5.5 to AD Hales, finally gets the breakthrough. Gave it even more flight, making Hales wait for it and go across the line. He's through his shot too early, and he'sgone, but you suspect it'll make no difference. 76/1
9.3 to PR Stirling, googly finally ends the entertaining Stirling tribute to KOB! He was losing steam after he got to 50 beginning with that over bowled by Hasnain and again struggled to get Steyn away second time around. The frustration was building even more after missing the slog sweep previous ball. He comes walking down the track but doesn't get to the pitch and plays around the googly coming in. Middle stump knocked back. But Irish eyes are smiling on Islamabad after that knock.. 93/2
