Pollard to Muhammad Musa, 3 runs, Swatted into the offside that time, and Wahab tumbles to his left and dives to save the boundary 19.3 4

Pollard to Muhammad Musa, FOUR runs, Hasan Ali misfields at deep midwicket and allows a four. Too casual from Hasan, because he knows his team have won this, but Pollard’s looking daggers. It’s his bowling figures that are being affected. Hasan throws up a hand in apology 19.2 1

Pollard to Rumman Raees, 1 run, 19.1 1

Pollard to Muhammad Musa, 1 run, length ball, he swings across the line and manages to just get it over the straight fence. Chris Jordan at the boundary caught the ball, and tried to parry it back in because he was going over the ropes with the momentum, but couldn’t do it in time, and it’s a six. Okay scratch that, the umpires have just signalled it’s not a six. Perhaps because Jordan was able to throw the ball back into the field of play when airborne

Wahab Riaz to Muhammad Musa, 1 leg bye, speared this into the stumps, but a bit too far down leg and it takes the pad to roll away to short fine. Wahab wasn’t happy with himself, think he wanted to bowl it at the stumps and sneak through the gate, after having bowled full and wide earlier. 18.5 0

Wahab Riaz to Muhammad Musa, no run, full, fast, on the fifth stump. No chance the batsman had to connect, especially a proper tailender 18.4 1

Wahab Riaz to Rumman Raees, 1 run, full and wide of off again, Rumman stretches his bat and manages to toe-end the ball past the bowler 18.3 0

Wahab Riaz to Rumman Raees, no run, pacy ball outside off, on the seventh stump. Poke and a miss 18.2 W

Wahab Riaz to Shadab Khan, OUT, this is all ending quickly. Shadab’s miserable stay comes to an end with a spooned catch to cover. He goes for a duck, having not managed to play a single convincing shot in his stay. This was a full ball, and he wanted to go straighter, but couldn’t connect well at all
