19.4 M Morkel to Saeed Ajmal, FOUR, outside edge settles it! Umar Akmal was off the blocks even before Morkel landed it on the pitch, Ajmal decided not to go for any wild slog and settled on edging it past the keeper, there was no slip and the ball raced to third man, smart choice of shot by Ajmal.
