5.4 to RJ Campbell, what a way to go. Very unlucky but Nabi has the breakthrough once again. A tossed up delivery on middle and Campbell's eyes lit up, got down early and was through the sweep too early too. Lobs up into the helmet off the body and then rolls back onto the stumps, with Shahzad consciously not interfering.. 40/1
5.6 to Babar Hayat, doesn't matter because Hayat has thrown his wicket away with a nothing stroke on a slow surface. Bad shot, loose shot. Some more flight on middle, Hayat comes down and just flicks the ball in the air to midwicket.. 42/2
13.4 to Nizakat Khan, gone by a mile. Flat delivery outside off, not by accident. Sees the batsman coming and fires it wider. Nizakat is caught like a deer in Nabi's lights and is stumped after missing his flick. Shahzad takes his time but mows down the bails as he does. 81/5
17.4 to KD Shah, and this one is taken by Nabi himself. Great catch. Tosses it up on middle, Kinchit goes for a big hoick but gets a thick leading edge which flies away towards midwicket. Nabi runs across and takes it himself. Well done. 103/6
Rashid Khan402315.7592000
8.6 to JJ Atkinson, bowled im. Did not seem like Atkinson was picking him. Went back to a flat delivery that skidded on. Plays the flick late but the ball is through bat and pad already and splatters into the stumps. Timely wicket, at a crucial stage. 56/3
Gulbadin Naib201316.5030010
9.5 to MS Chapman, phew, how can you play that? Chapman could do nothing about it. What a delivery that is. An exceptional yorker on middle, that is absolutely perfect. Quick through the air and pacey too, which aids in sneaking under the bat. Those zing bails light up with red, symbolic of the trouble HK are in. 61/4

16.3 to Shafiqullah, gone. Another unusual dismissal. Shafiqullah gets down low for a hard sweep but the pitch is rather slow and Shafiq is through the stroke too early, ends up toe-ending it back to the bowler who takes a good, low catch.. 103/4

10.4 to Mohammad Shahzad, gets under it this time but slices the ball straight down long-off's throat. Shimmies down once more, and goes for another ferocious thump but not of the middle. An easy take for long-off. He's done his job though. 70/1
14.3 to Mohammad Nabi, looking for the massive slog but misses. Nabi isn't too happy but he has to go. Flat delivery on middle, Nabi misses the heave and the stumps are rattled. Decent cameo though. 95/2
