618.618.6: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, SIX! THERE IT IS! Scintillating hitting from Asif Ali and this is why he did not take the single in the previous over! On a length again, outside off. He sends the ball sailing over the cover fence. Pakistan win by 5 wickets!
618.518.5: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, SIX! So, the over so far as been - six, dot, six, dot, six! On a length, on off. Asif Ali hits it straight down the ground for another maximum. Pakistan are one big hit away now.
018.418.4: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, Another beautiful yorker, wide outside off. Asif Ali gets no bat on it whatsoever.
618.318.3: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, SIX! Karim Janat misses the mark and gets pumped again! Slower and shorter, outside off. Asif Ali heaves it over the mid-wicket fence. This is quality hitting by Asif Ali. He did it against the Kiwis. Can he do it here too?
018.218.2: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, Well bowled. A yorker, wide outside off. Asif Ali goes to drive but misses. Very well bowled under pressure.
618.118.1: Karim Janat to Asif Ali, SIX! BOOM! In the slot and Asif Ali punishes it! On a length, outside off. Asif Ali sits back in his crease and frees his arms to send the ball sailing over the long off fence. Great start to the 19th over for Pakistan.

017.617.6: Naveen-ul-Haq to Shadab Khan, NOT OUT! Slower ball, on a length, on off. Shadab taps it to short mid-wicket and looks for a run. But Asif is not interested. Shabad runs back as the throw comes in and Mohammad Shahzad takes the bails off. The TV umpire is called in but Shadab is well inside. What an over by Naveen-ul-Haq though. Just 2 runs and a wicket from it. 24 needed in the last 2 overs.
017.517.5: Naveen-ul-Haq to Shoaib Malik, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Naveen-ul-Haq has done what his captain would have wanted from him! He bowls a length ball, wide outside off. The eyes of Shoaib Malik light up and he goes for the booming drive. But all he gets is the outside edge and Mohammad Shahzad takes an easy catch. 24 needed in 13 balls now and the lower order of Pakistan will be tested here.
017.417.4: Naveen-ul-Haq to Shoaib Malik, BEAUTIFUL DELIVERY! A slower yorker, on off. Malik looks to drive it at first but the ball takes ages to come. He blocks it in the end. Two dots in a row.
017.317.3: Naveen-ul-Haq to Shoaib Malik, Dropped! But, this was a very tough chance. Length ball, on off. Malik smacks it very hard but straight back in the direction of the bowler. Naveen-ul-Haq sticks his right hand out. The ball hits his hand and pops out. He tries to catch it on the rebound but is not able to. Still, it is a dot ball.
117.217.2: Naveen-ul-Haq to Asif Ali, Slower and shorter, around off. Ali pulls it past square leg for one.

Naveen-ul-Haq runs across to his right from backward point. He gets to the ball, catches it as well with a dive but as he goes down, the ball slips out. They cross, Rashid cannot believe it.
016.416.4: Rashid Khan to Shoaib Malik, Googly, but down the leg side. Malik misses the flick and even Mohammad Shahzad cannot collect it. So a wide and an extra run is taken by the batters.

616.216.2: Rashid Khan to Shoaib Malik, SIX! High and handsome! Flatter ball, wide outside off. Malik gets low and then hammers it way, way over the long on fence. A quality stroke. We all were thinking that Pakistan would look to knock it around in this over and see off Rashid but Shoaib has other plans. He hit that ball on merit.
016.116.1: Rashid Khan to Shoaib Malik, Flatter ball, on the pads. Malik taps it to short mid-wicket. Dot ball.

14 Overs | Runs : 97/3 | Run rate : 6.93

011.111.1: Mohammad Nabi to Fakhar Zaman, OUT! LBW! Well, it's not the wicket of Babar Azam but Fakhar Zaman is an equally big scalp. The skipper comes back on to bowl and gets the breakthrough right away. Mohammad Nabi angles it in from around the stumps and Fakhar Zaman gets down on one knee to sweep it away. Zaman misses and gets hit on the back thigh. The umpire raises his finger after thinking for a while and Pakistan review it again. UltraEdge confirms that there's no bat on it and this time Ball Tracker shows that the ball would go on to hit the leg stump. Fakhar Zaman has to depart. End of the 63-run stand. Can this wicket change the momentum of the game? 73 runs needed in 53 balls.
11 Overs | Runs : 75/2 | Run rate : 6.82
010.610.6: Rashid Khan to Babar Azam, NOT OUT! Rashid Khan almost does the trick in his very first over. This is the googly yet again, on the middle stump line and Babar Azam doesn't seem to pick it up. Azam gets rapped on the pads as he attempts to flick and the umpire does raise his finger. Babar Azam takes the review and the UltraEdge shows that the ball did not hit the bat but the Ball Tracker does show that it was going on to miss the leg stump. How huge could this review prove to be?

The fielder picks up the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. It would have been tight in case of a direct hit.
