0.1 and a wicket first up! Fires a length ball in towards the stumps, and Haider goes for the big sweep. Middles it and hits it well, but he picks out the man at deep square leg. Only two fielders on the boundary, and Haider hits this first ball straight to one of them 0/1
    14.2 struck on the front pad and there's an appeal for lbw. Sarfaraz reviews. That was angling into the batter after pitching on a good length on middle, and Akmal flicked and missed. But replays confirm that would have hit the leg stump with three reds there, though the earlier impression was the ball sliding down the leg side. 135/3
    2.2 not short enough to pull, and it skids in with the angle towards the stumps. Malik is completely cramped for room, and he ends up shovelling it high in the air, descends almost straight down into midwicket's hands. Two wickets for Nawaz in his first two overs 10/2
    16.3 and the off stump goes cartwheeling. Miller went for the full-blooded smash over midwicket, and the fuller ball on middle and off crashed into the stumps. Massive wicket for the Gladiators here with less than four overs to go. He's already turned it around for Zalmi, and Khurram sees his back 157/4
    not out
    19.5 run-out at the non-striker's end. Goes shorter on middle and off, and that is creamed past the left of the bowler. Weatherald at long-off dives to his right and stops a clear boundary before throwing it back in time, with the non-striker happy to sacrifice his wicket as Powell went for the strike 191/5

    9.1 and his bounce comes into play straightaway. Length ball, angling into off stump, and Saim looks to clip it into the leg side. The extra bounce causes him to skew it up in the air off the leading edge, and Allen settles comfortably under it at backward point. Straightened off the pitch too 69/2
    7.6 full and flat, angling down leg. Cramps Usman for room and leverage as he looks to clear his front leg and slog it away. Doesn't get the power or elevation he wants, and ends up picking out Malik at long-on. Allen breaks into a smooth jig to celebrate the wicket 62/1
    11.1 edged and takes a wicket first ball! Full delivery on middle and off, and angling away from teh batter. Weatherald looks to dab that down the third man region, but doesn't get his feet moving a lot. And Akmal dives to his left to collect that well, with Zalmi denting the chase yet again. Umaid gets a mask out of his pocket and puts it on his face in celebration 85/5
    9.5 shortish, at the hip, and Irfan gets his second of the over. Timed that flick really well, only too well because it carries all the way to the fielder at long leg 70/3
    9.6 and he's gone first ball, wow. Length ball angled in towards off stump, may have straightened just a touch. Delport stays leg-side of the ball, tries to steer it behind square, and ends up playing inside the line and losing his off stump 70/4
    not out
    11.2 the off stump is knocked back this time. That was again bowled full on off, and seemed to move away. Nawaz is beaten on the flick, as the ball continues to angle further away, and out comes that mask again 85/6
    17.5 a direct hit, and Khurram is run-out. He lobbed that full delivery on middle and off in the air toward midwicket, and the bowler gave the chase. It was not caught, and Khurram casually ran towards the non-striker's end and was found short 123/7
    18.1 slower ball on off, and edged behind. Looking for the expansive drive on the off side, he swung his bat hard at it while remaining rooted in the crease and has to depart for a first-ball duck. Good, high take from Akmal to his right 123/8
    18.3 middle stump uprooted. That was pitched on a good length on middle and leg, and shaped away from the batter, who was clearly late in trying to cover the line of the ball. Not an easy ball for a No. 10 by any means, and that's another one for Wahab 123/9
