All|Overs 1-50
4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, too straight, Amla dispatches it for World XI's first boundary of the innings. Strong wrists from the South Africa batsman as he dismisses it through mid-wicket

6

Wasim to Tamim, SIX, exposes his stumps, lures Wasim to provide swinging room and then lofts him straight down the ground for six. Calculative batting

4

Wasim to Tamim, FOUR, gets down low and paddles it fine. The new ball is skidding on nicely, and Tamim uses its pace superbly well

4

Wasim to Tamim, FOUR, this time he does get the sweep away over backward square leg. The pace from Wasim had beaten him previously, but this time he's quick to latch onto it

4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, punchy drive through the covers, trademark Amla. Good length on off, Amla nails it to the boundary. It sped off the middle of his bat

4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, there he is again, punching the ball to the boundary. Back of a length, he stands tall and strokes it gorgeously straight of mid-off

W

Khan to Tamim, out Caught by Shoaib Malik!! It was Collingwood earlier, and now it's Malik; the veterans setting the field on fire. What a superb catch this is. Good length ball on leg, Tamim whips it stylishly but he hasn't got the elevation, even if he has the timing, to get it over short fine leg. Malik stretches full length to the right to grab it. Lovely stuff. Tamim c Shoaib Malik b Khan 23(19) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

Nawaz to Paine, FOUR, that's a dangler for Sohail, and leaves him between trying to take the catch and trying to stop the ball. He manages to do neither. Paine bends across, scoops the ball in the air, and just about clears short fine leg. Rolls away from Sohail to the boundary

6

Khan to Amla, SIX, he's turning it on. Ever so beautifully. Forgets reading the spin that there might have been on this one, he doesn't need to. Sinks down and slogs, behind square. And for the crowds

W

Wasim to Paine, out Bowled!! A sleeper. One that has the gravity of Jupiter. Wasim drifts it away, slingy while Paine looks to line himself up after the walk going away in freeing his long levers. Carves the bat, violently off the back foot, tries to crouch down as well to adjust to the lack of the ball getting up. Never could. Rolls away to the bottom of off. Sign of things to come? Paine b Wasim 10(12) [4s-1]

6

Nawaz to Amla, SIX, how do you take the awkward bounce out? With a dance down of course. Amla is right there at the pitch of it, takes on the flight on offer as well as he goes full-blooded with the tonk down. And over

6

Khan to du Plessis, SIX, goes downtown. And deposits it further. Stays put, but the arms start swinging. A mighty blow and skies into the sightscreen

OT

Nawaz to Amla, 1 run, running down, to the pitch of it and a whippy-flick to cow corner. Right in between the men out there to pinch the second. What's more, there's his fifty too. And a short run, but the fifty isn't denied

6

Nawaz to du Plessis, SIX, the quicker one. And Faf goes brave, takes on the two men manning the straight fence. Down in a flash, high off the bat again with the bat swings but it isn't the 1st of October as yet. Flies over, just

W

Nawaz to du Plessis, out Caught by Shadab Khan!! One dance down too many, one tonk too many. Looks to repeat his earlier luck, but Nawaz smartly follows him. Tossing it up a lot more as well. Chips it up, outside halved, through the line, looking to go over long-off. Finds his throat instead. du Plessis c Shadab Khan b Nawaz 20(14) [6s-2]

4

to Amla, FOUR, misses the yorker. And Amla is right on it, laying on. Ends up in the form of a juicy half volley in the slot and smashed through cow corner

4

to Amla, FOUR, the freebie comes out. On the hips for a swivel and a dispatch with an angry glance, swishy as he puts it into fine leg. The fence of course

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, here's the pressure release. The slower one, spotted out and murdered. Stays low, swats it away and gives mid-wicket some hope. And that's all he's getting for now

6

to Thisara Perera, SIX, wild slog, the long handle and the fat bat. Spots the full toss, clears his front leg and skies it down the ground. To imagine that wasn't quite off the middle of the bat too

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, he's keeping them alive. Bang in the slot, yes, in the form of a full toss and he stoops to get right under it in a carve, straight down. Airy and over

D

Khan to Thisara Perera, 2 runs, dropped. Oh Shoaib Malik, is that the match? Was a clobbed over the bowler, and Malik running across from long-on gets it at a nice height as well. "You could put his house on him" thinks Pommy on air. And that house has been robbed

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, rubs it in. A massive moment this. loses his radar with the full toss, Perera gets back to doing what he does for a living. His staple bat swing. Across, flat and over cow corner

6

to Thisara Perera, SIX, there's it. A massive blow. So typically Thisara Perera. After all the advice he got, dishes out a full toss, the juiciest of them, high up and finds it smoked into the sightscreen. And then the roar..seals it snatching it from the mouth of defeat with a ball to spare

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, here's some Tennis at Lahore. Comes down the track and smacks it with a flat bat over 's head

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, another straight delivery on the pads, tucked to fine leg fence

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, now you can't blame much here. Fakhar Zaman backed away quite early, he just followed him to cut the room off and guess what the batsman does: uses his wrists and glances it to the fine leg fence. 14 runs off the over..

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, some turn off middle - he's bowling to the left hander from over the wicket - and it means that the delivery was way too straight. Stays back and cocks his wrists around to work the gap between two men behind square

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, shimmies out and pops the slog-drive uppishly but wide of mid-off there

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, now this has just an iota of room but Ahmed Shehzad has more worked the length here. Backed away - little much - and then sliced it behind point

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, a flat leg break that sits up, Ahmed Shehzad runs down and snorts it to the long-off fence. Might have bounce once I think

W

to Fakhar Zaman, out Lbw!! He just about managed to sweep the last ball, so bowls it as flat but slower. Fakhar Zaman is early and is pinned in front. Replays in: Pitches on leg and slides on; so a fair enough decision you'd say. Fakhar Zaman lbw b 21(13) [4s-4]

4

Perera to Babar Azam, FOUR, past keeper's athletic dive to the right. Babar Azam throws his bat and elicits a thick edge that's flying to the third man fence

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, that's half a win for the bowler and then half for the batsman. Ahmed Shehzad is way early into his loft but adjusts late minute, slicing it over 's head

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, this back of a length delivery actually stalked Ahmed Shehzad down leg but he's nicely kept his head cool and opened the bat face to fine the gap behind point. 's pace coming to Shehzad's party there

4

Perera to Babar Azam, FOUR, straight bat and punched to the other side of the stumps. Perera's right hand in his followthrough cannot do much

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, drifts down leg and straightens, playing into the hands of Babar Azam's last-minute paddle

OT

to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, gets this off-pacer in, Ahmed Shehzad adjusted as he made room and pierced cover-point

6

to Ahmed Shehzad, SIX, comes down the track and he's synced his footsteps well with the lack of pace on this delivery. Lifts it over long-off!

W

to Ahmed Shehzad, out Caught by Miller!! Good tumbling catch by Miller at long-on. And blame this dismissal on how got the ball to hurry onto Ahmed Shehzad. Was always intending a loft down the ground but doesn't get the time to open the bat face straight-on, and ended up clonking it slightly more leg-side than he'd have liked. Ahmed Shehzad c Miller b 43(34) [4s-5 6s-1]

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, flatter and subsidized with width, Azam stays slightly legside and cuts it past Tamim at deep backward point for a boundary

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, that's just glorious from Azam. can go back in bewilderment, thinking what he has done wrong; he won't find many answers. Back of length on middle, barely around waist height, and Azam whips a pull backward of square. Some timing. It races away

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, races to the pitch of the ball and launches it straight back down the ground. Handsome strike from Malik

4

to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, poor ball. It's fired down the leg-side, and Malik simply glances it away past short fine leg for four, using all the pace on it

W

to Babar Azam, out Caught by Miller!! Babar Azam has miscued this, and it's Miller underneath. He makes the catch look really easy. Flat on off, Azam was swinging for the mid-wicket region, but the ball turned on him, producing a thick leading edge. It skied up towards long-on, and gave Miller enough time to settle underneath. Another fine knock from Azam, but he can't kick on like yesterday. Babar Azam c Miller b 45(38) [4s-5]

4

Morkel to Imad Wasim, FOUR, punched down the ground, past mid-on for four. It was a half-volley, and what Wasim did well was not to overhit the ball. The timing is excellent. Proper shot

4

Morkel to Imad Wasim, FOUR, short of length on leg, Wasim swivels inside it and pulls it to the long leg boundary. Looks to be in some good batting rhythm

W

Perera to Imad Wasim, out Caught by Tahir!! The last two deliveries Wasim faced were low full tosses, so the idea from him to try and lap the ball over short fine leg is not a bad one. He even gets the delivery he wants; it's a low full toss on middle. But Wasim doesn't get hold of the scoop and spoons it straight to short fine leg. Imad Wasim c Tahir b Perera 15(11) [4s-2]

W

Perera to Sarfraz, out Caught by Tahir!! Straight to short third man. Pakistan wobbling towards the end. Short of length just outside off, Sarfraz uses the pace beautifully but glides it straight to Tahir. Golden duck for the skipper. Sarfraz c Tahir b Perera 0(1)

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, ferocious swing of the bat from Malik, muscles the pull over the ropes more than anything else. Short ball, climbs on Malik who swings off his feet. May have even been a thick top-edge, but it sails

D

to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, Miller drops a sitter at deep mid-wicket. A mistimed slog from Malik off a full toss, and it was a comfortable chance. The ball just popped out

6

to Shoaib Malik, SIX, sits back on the leg-cutter and heaves it over long-on. Could that have been taken? Maybe, if the fielder was right back. But as it is, he wasn't. Du Plessis isn't pleased

W

to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by Collingwood!! Fullish outside off, Malik carves it into the off-side, and is fantastically caught by 41-year-old Collingwood. He had to run in and then dive forward; hasn't lost a step. Shoaib Malik c Collingwood b 39(23) [4s-1 6s-3]
