All|Overs 1-50
4

Wasim to Tamim, FOUR, comes down the track and toe-ends a loft down the ground. Malik was at long-on, and seemed to have overrun this swirler. Tough catch but staying put could have helped. Runs in, and then arches back in an attempt to take it, and doesn't get hold of it. Tough chance

4

Wasim to Tamim, FOUR, brutal. Slog-swept over mid-wicket. That's better, Iqbal

4

Wasim to Tamim, FOUR, length slightly short and he's stood back to hack it over mid-wicket. He's up and running

W

Khan to Tamim, out Bowled!! He's gone. The first folly was in playing this fuller length off the back foot. And then doesn't read this cutter, which stays low to skid into the stumps. Tamim b Khan 14(10) [4s-3]

4

Wasim to Amla, FOUR, he's shimmying down the track, then holds his charge and uses a still head to swipe that over mid-on. How lovely do his followthroughs look!

4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, pitched right up and Amla has slammed the drive straight down the ground. Had his front leg down leg, so had the room in front of the stumps to really cock his wrists and impart all the force

4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, he compensates for playing late with his uber-fast wrists. Staying back foot and picking the leg-stump delivery uppishly through the fine leg fence

4

Khan to Amla, FOUR, takes his front leg outta way and bottom-hands the ball over mid-off

4

Ali to Cutting, FOUR, just a touch of a shuffle across and then clips it wide of mid-wicket's airy-fairy dive to the right

W

Ali to Cutting, out Bowled!! Now he's tried to slam the ball across the line and missed it, almost. Quick from , this ball, to take the inside edge onto the stumps. And then the hands-implode celebration that ends up in Shahrukh Khan-like open arms. Cutting b Ali 5(4) [4s-1]

W

Ali to du Plessis, out Amla Run Out!! Now this was clipped to the leg-side, mid-wicket swoops in and parries the ball to the bowler, who catches Amla short. He was halfway down the track in trying to pinch a quick single. An absolute communication breakdown between players who play together on most days. Amla run out (Fakhar Zaman / Ali) 21(12) [4s-4]

4

Nawaz to du Plessis, FOUR, bounces just inside the ropes. Shimmies down and lofts this inside-out over mid-off, and places it wide of the fielder in the deep too

W

Wasim to Bailey, out Bowled!! World XI going down like an economic slowdown. Bailey goes back and across to cut this flatter ball that's turning away. And all he's managed is a bottom-edge that castles his stumps. End of a really sluggish innings from Bailey. Bailey b Wasim 3(12)

6

Wasim to Miller, SIX, dear o dear. Comes down the ground ensuring that the front leg isn't a hindrance, and mows it over mid-off

W

Wasim to du Plessis, out du Plessis Run Out!! Shadab has hit the bull's-eye at the bowler's end. was so sure that he backed away and was vindicated. Du Plessis sloshed it out to mid-off, and has been unhinged off the crease by a good bit of athleticism. This kid Shadab is real good. Stopped a good drill by Faf and then took no time to parry the throw back. Chose the correct end in that haste too. du Plessis run out (Shadab Khan) 13(13) [4s-1]

4

Ali to Miller, FOUR, comes down the track whilst making room, Ali stalks him with a full ball and guess what, it's been ruthlessly flicked wide of long-on. Hail the wrists. World XI need 103 runs in 48 balls

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, woah. Front leg out of the way as Thisara Perera crouches and connects the bejeesus out of this slog-sweep

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, floated fuller on leg-stump and this is in the crowd! Thisara Perera opens his stance and swings the ball away. Simple

6

Khan to Thisara Perera, SIX, hat-trick of sixes! What can Khan do?! He's bowled the quicker googly but just errs in dropping it a touch short. Pulled flat-battedly over long-on

4

Khan to Thisara Perera, FOUR, 6 6 6 and now a 4. Lofts it straight down the ground; one bounce over the ropes

4

to Thisara Perera, FOUR, that's been slashed through point. Wasn't even short but that's the strength in the hands. Wow. Drilled away

W

to Thisara Perera, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Been referred upstairs, with the soft signal being out. Went back to a slower short ball, tries to hack it across but miscues it off the outside half to Babar Azam on the ring, at cover. Dives in front to take that. They're looking at how clean the catch is. Replays are dicey, as always, but the fingers look underneath the ball. Since the soft signal is out, the third umpire's decision flashes as out. Big, big wicket; perhaps the match and the series for Pakistan. Thisara Perera c Babar Azam b 32(13) [4s-2 6s-3]

4

to Miller, FOUR, short ball going leg, pulled away through fine leg

6

Ali to Sammy, SIX, gosh, Sammy hasn't lost a muscle. Stays in the crease and just lifts it up like a lever. Over long-on

W

Ali to Miller, out Caught by Babar Azam!! They wanted that wicket. Sits low and slogs it straight to deep mid-wicket. Gets it off the bottom half of the blade and then erred in trying to clear the longer side of the ground. Miller c Babar Azam b Ali 32(29) [4s-2 6s-1]

W

Khan to Morne Morkel, out Morne Morkel Run Out!! Nicely makes room to drive this on the up, finds mid-off and then is so, so lethargic in running across. Direct hit by Babar Azam and he's gone at the bowler's end. Morne Morkel run out (Babar Azam) 1(2)

4

Ali to Sammy, FOUR, wide of long-on this time. Makes room and sort of slogs it loopily past the fielder's reach in the deep

4

to Sammy, FOUR, low full toss lofted through straightish long-on

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, slowly getting up but Shehzad's hands are anything but slow. Backs away, crouches low, gives his arms the stretch and cuts it through point. All power

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, now the long hop. Zaman rocks back, inherits the line and with a great degree of violence pulls it away. In front of square

4

Morkel to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, a friendly freebie. An overcooked half volley on the pads. All Shehzad has to do is get some bat and he ensures that he flicks it through long-on as well, only to beautify the effect

4

Morkel to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, and again. Continues with the pad-floats. Waits on it to whip it away, head-on-ball stuff. Mid-wicket this time, the result - the same

4

to Fakhar Zaman, FOUR, the dancing moves, forward, away and an inside-out. An absolute hammer slicing it over the covers. Intercepts the toss up wide as well. This is some ploy against the wily spin

4

Morkel to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, width. A shortened length. And Shehzad doesn't belive in the policy of forgiveness. On the toes, rides the bounce and cracks the drive, spanking it to bisect the two men in the cover ring

4

Perera to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, some warm up. And Shehzad is quickly on a flamingo-pose. Just not the pace to be bowling down leg, well there never is one. A one-legged glance to fine leg, an empty fine leg

6

Perera to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, sitting up. The short-wide combo and for a change Zaman's arms get the breathing space. A flat batted cut, uppish and over third man. The feet flying up, the body arching back and all the ecstasy you'd want with it

OT

Perera to Fakhar Zaman, 1 run, squeezes out the attempted yorker and sneaks across. The 50 is up too

W

to Ahmed Shehzad, out Fakhar Zaman Run Out!! The only way a wicket looked like it come. And it is the engraved most-unfortunate-way to get out. All very disarming to start with as Shehzad blunts the off-cutter back down the pitch. Zaman as usual was on a backing spree. And all of a sudden the big bends, gets his fingertips and imparts a direction on it to dislodge the stumps. Fakhar Zaman run out () 27(25) [4s-2 6s-1]

OT

to Babar Azam, 2 runs, oh trouble. And Shehzad is getting lazy with the running. Just that he doesn't pay the price for it now. Was a soft hand to square leg off the hips and after a casual single, they suddenyl decide to go back for the second. And manage

4

to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, that'll help get the momentum back. A toss up on off from , and takes on the invite with a muscular slog down the ground. The only thing long-off can stop is the ricochet coming back from the hoardings

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, some aggression, and messes around with the length with a trek backwards. Sits deep inside the crease and unleashes a powerful hoick, cow corner again

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, some lucky edges now. In the desperation to get things kicking, Azam goes hard at the width with a flashy cut. Gets a fat outside half and 30-degrees too fine. He ain't complaining

OT

to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, a dipping low yorker. Moves away to flick it to mid-wicket. And that's the fifty too..surely the best he's looked all series

D

Perera to Babar Azam, 1 run, a horror line, a horror shot and a horror bit of fielding. A nothing delivery down leg, Azam despite there being a fine leg swishes it up in the air, finds Tahir's palms to perfection. And he puts it down

OT

to Babar Azam, 1 run, a short-flipper. Azam continues to find the fielder at cow corner with his swat

4

to Babar Azam, FOUR, finds the fence..and finds the lid to put off the pressure. One in the slot finally and he swings, goes downtown. It's taken three overs to get a boundary

4

Perera to Babar Azam, FOUR, another Perera over's first ball, another nothing delivery. The length neither here nor there, the pace and the line certainly not there. Climbs up and lays into the wide line to thrash it through the covers

4

Morkel to Babar Azam, FOUR, that'll help the Pakistani cause. Steps away, picks the slower one and picks the bones off it. Doesn't even bother keeping the slap down, through the line and ove cover

4

Morkel to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, the slice of luck. The edge of luck rather. Full, on middle and Shehzad's swishy adventures grope an inside edge, through the legs. Helped by matters when there is no fine leg either

4

Morkel to Ahmed Shehzad, FOUR, rubs it in with some cheek. Shuffling, sitting on a knee well across the stumps and Morkel's full toss is ramped behind the keeper

6

to Ahmed Shehzad, SIX, a swing. And a dispatch. misses by an inch, Shehzad snatches a mile. Stays low, stays deep inside the crease and goes for an almighty tonk. Cow corner takes the brunt

6

to Ahmed Shehzad, SIX, go fetch. Misses by another inch, bang in the slot now. And the punishment gets further cruel. Shehzad's toying around here, anticipates the length in the slot and gets it bigger with the slam-bang. Long-on stands, looks up and admires the parabola

6

to Ahmed Shehzad, SIX, messing around here. gets it short, Shehzad gets his third. Walks inside the line, takes it head-on with a hook and puts it away into long leg

W

to Babar Azam, wide, out Ahmed Shehzad Run Out!! Another piece of misfortune and once again it is the only way Shehzad looked like he could get out tonight. Well you could blame him for his greed, the greed to get back on strike. Was a drifter down leg, but Shehzad wasn't happy with just the wide. he wanted an extra sneaked through as well. So he runs half way down, slips in turning back and Bailey and gang up to catch him short. Ahmed Shehzad run out (Bailey/) 89(55) [4s-8 6s-3]

6

Morkel to Shoaib Malik, SIX, the backlift, the bat-swing and it is into the skies. Morkel once again with the cardinal sin of bowling length at this stage, bang in the slot and Malik stays under it to send it packing straight down

W

Perera to Babar Azam, out Caught by du Plessis!! There's the ungainly fall. Starts with a backing away, Perera throws the bait wider outside off, slowing it down too. A reached out, desperate slice follows with Azam throwing everything into it. Loses all shap, all timing. Not the toe-end though, that is found and extra cover has some backpedalling to do before he pouches. The first wicket that falls to something normal. Babar Azam c du Plessis b Perera 48(31) [4s-5]

6

Perera to Shoaib Malik, SIX, whoa. This is an exhibition guys. Was the full toss, yes. Was slipping down leg, yes. But the treatment is brutal. Malik sits down, waits under and executes a full-blooded swipe with the bat face facing the skies. That's where the ball is headed too

W

Perera to Imad Wasim, out Caught by du Plessis!! The third dot in the over. And Perera's quest of keeping things quiet continues. Another top yorker this from Perera, nails it inside the crease and Wasim with all his move-aways cannot get under it. Carves it with the bat face twisting in his palm, extra cover it is. More importantly Shoaib has the strike back. Imad Wasim c du Plessis b Perera 0(2)
