BALL BY BALL
C D Grandhomme
18.3 - F Ashraf to I Sodhi
OUT! That's it! PAKISTAN WIN BY 48 RUNS TO KEEP THE SERIES ALIVE! Banged short on the stumps, Sodhi goes for the pull. Gets a top edge towards fine leg. Azam runs backwards from short fine leg to take it comfortably and spark off celebrations for his side.
18.2 - F Ashraf to I Sodhi
Sodhi looks to pull it but fails to do so.
18.1 - F Ashraf to S Rance
OUT! The end is near! Length ball angling in, Rance chips it straight down long on's throat. Zaman, stationed there, gets one of the most easiest catches you will ever do in the sport. Takes it with ease to end Rance's stay. The on-air commentators joke that if that would have sailed over, he would have wanted the ground to be taken out of the sport.
Ov 18: 4 1 2 0 W 1 ( 8 Runs, 1 Wkt )
17.6 - M Amir to S Rance
Guided to third man for one to get going.
17.5 - M Amir to M Santner
OUT! Final nail in the coffin? Back of a length ball at 143.9 kph. Santner backs away and looks to heave it to the on side but is undone by the quick pace. Gets a thick outside edge to Ahmed who does the rest. Pleasantries exchanges between the bowler and the batter.
17.4 - M Amir to M Santner
Length ball on the stumps, Santner has a hoick but misses.
17.3 - M Amir to M Santner
NOT OUT! Santner flicks it through mid-wicket and wants two immediately. He rushes back for the second even as a good flat throw over the stumps reaches the keeper. He whips the bails of and asks the question. The third umpire is called for. Replays show that he has made it in.
17.2 - M Amir to I Sodhi
Full on off, driven to long off for one.
17.1 - M Amir to I Sodhi
FOUR! Let the bowler change, Sodhi's approach will be the same. Hurled on a shorter length, Ish backs away and pulls it aerially towards wide long on. The ball bounces just in front of the ropes before going over. 53 more needed in 17 balls.
