014.514.5: Safyaan Sharif to Sandeep Goud, OUT! CAUGHT! Safyaan Sharif does get another wicket in the end, even though it's not the one Scotland would have wanted. A length ball, on the pads and Sandeep Goud picks it up nicely. Goud whips it in the air but finds the fielder at the square leg fence perfectly. Chris Greaves doesn't make a mistake and Goud has to walk back to the pavilion.
014.414.4: Safyaan Sharif to Zeeshan Maqsood, LEG BYE! A length ball, angled into the leg stump. Zeeshan Maqsood looks to flick but misses and the ball goes off the pads onto the leg side. They get a leg bye.

114.114.1: Safyaan Sharif to Zeeshan Maqsood, In the air...and the skipper, Kyle Coetzer has completely missed it. A slower length ball, on middle, Zeeshan Maqsood skies it miles up in the air and the ball is coming down around mid off. The bowler doesn't go for it and Coetzer runs in from the cover region but probably loses the ball in the floodlights. Or maybe, Kyle Coetzer stopped thinking that the bowler will also go for the catch. Eventually, a chance goes down begging. There is a run out chance as well but Kyle Coetzer fails to hit the stumps at the bowler's end. Zeeshan Maqsood survives a couple of scares on one ball. A single added to the total in the end.

Zeeshan Maqsood pulls it but straight to the fielder at deep square leg. Scotland celebrate but the umpires refer it upstairs and replays show that the ball is above the waist. Free Hit coming up. Kyle Coetzer isn't happy with the decision.

Good effort from the fielder but the ball ends up in the fence. That probably brushed his fingertips as he jumped.
011.311.3: Michael Leask to Zeeshan Maqsood, Another slight mix-up but no harm done. It's fired in at the stumps and Maqsood flicks it on the leg side. He wants a single but is sent back and rightly so.
