Munis Ansari403739.25134220
15.1 to NJ O'Brien, flogged across the line, a spiralling top-edge - the ball needs oxygen at this altitude - and an effortless pouch at backward square leg brings to an end an enterprising cameo. 112/3
15.6 to GC Wilson, splattered! Flung onto the perfect length, Wilson had a swing without getting his feet to the ball, and his stumps are pleasingly spread-eagled! Quite the comeback over from Ansari. Two wickets and six runs .... 118/4
19.3 to KJ O'Brien, bowled him! O'Brien was too busy dancing at the crease to find time actually to play a stroke to this one. In the end the ball was into his stumps before he could readjust into an orthodox stroke!. 143/5
Aamir Kaleem402716.7573000
6.3 to PR Stirling, stunning catch! Zeeshan Maqsood has clung onto a blinder at short cover, but the umpires are checking for something... the soft signal is out, but let's see if it was grounded on impact with the turf... he flung himself high and handsomely to his left, Jonty Rhodes-esque hang time, and surely that was deeply embedded in his knuckles as he crashed to the turf! He's gone! Oman have their wicket, and in incredible style!. 48/1
Khawar Ali302016.6651000
11.4 to WTS Porterfield, gone this time! Round the wicket, looping through the gate as Porterfield has a wild mow with his head pointing in the direction of Sir Edmund Hilary's flag. A smart gather behind the stumps and the bails are off before you can blink. 84/2

Boyd Rankin302317.6674000
18.1 to Jatinder Singh, full length, and Rankin strikes! Jatinder has a slog across the line and loses his leg stump ... that is a big moment .... 137/6
Kevin O'Brien402526.25101100
8.3 to Khawar Ali, too much excitement for Khawar! A loose prod towards third man, misses everything, and OBrien has his revenge!. 69/1
10.4 to Zeeshan Maqsood, inside-edged and Maqsood is gone! He was never entirely comfortable against O'Brien's round-the-wicket wiles, another forcing shot through the off-side, but this time he shivers his own timbers!. 78/2
Andy McBrine301525.0080100
13.3 to Mehran Khan, a humungous wipe across the line - the ball flies high into the Himalayan sky, dancing with the midgies under the floodlights, and nestles serenely in the hands of short midwicket. The curtains are being drawn .... 89/4
13.6 to Aamir Kaleem, big appeal, wicket to wicket, a very loose pokey steer across the line, but his front foot was planted and there was nowhere to go but straight back to the pavilion. 90/5
Paul Stirling201507.5032000
Max Sorensen2.4029210.8772122
12.4 to Adnan Ilyas, outside off, an attempted glide through third man, but Sorensen's extra height takes the splice for Stirling at point to dive forward and gather a looping edge. 86/3
19.4 to Amir Ali, oh lummie! Sorensen gets it right this time, a full length ball, a backaway-and-swipe, and up goes the finger! Amir has taken his team to the brink, but his team-mates will have to take it home .... 152/8
