Shall not forget that Wahab bowled and batted with a hairline fracture in his right hand! Took the attack to Rashid when no one else could and shifted the momentum just at the right time. What a lionhearted Cricketer and such an asset for the team!
Woof, what an absolute nerve-wracking contest we have witnessed here at Leed's. Jitters, agony and what not? Just when Afghanistan were looking that they were edging closer to toppling over a top ODI side, one man stands up and exclaims "Not today!". Imad Wasim came out to bat in a tricky condition and Pakistan slowly stooping lower into a bottomless pit. He survived the spin assault and changed gears just at the right time. Wahab's lusty blows assisted Imad and Pakistan have pulled off yet another nail-biter in their favor! A nation rejoices and the other one is marred by heartbreak. Within six days, Pakistan have elevated into the top four and are a whisker away from a semi-finals spot.
49.4 - G Naib to I Wasim
He's done it! Friendly fulltoss and he has hammered that through the covers and it scoots away. Imad Wasim has pulled it off for Pakistan!
49.3 - G Naib to I Wasim
Fuller length outside off, taps it straight to extra cover and they get the risky second! Shy at the stumps but a very poor throw and they capitalize on it fully, getting an extra run comfortably in the end.
49.2 - G Naib to W Riaz
Length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Khil.
49.1 - G Naib to I Wasim
Low wide full toss slammed away to deep extra cover and they don't come back for the second! This has been really a nerve-wracking game!

Takes the single! Fired down the pads, he glances it fine and gets one

Cometh the moment cometh the man! Wahab is showing real guts here as he reverses sweeps this one and pinches another run.
48.4 - R Khan to W Riaz
Looks to swing it away but this is a slower wrong un, misses out as it sneaks through
48.3 - R Khan to W Riaz
Chops it away to cover point and he gets another couple! The equation has been brought significantly. Wahab is playing a little gem here!
