Commentary

  , Prasad to Azhar Ali, no run,
  , Prasad to Azhar Ali, no run, too full, slightly overpitched on a fifth-stump line, he drives it to mid-off
  , Prasad to Azhar Ali, no run, tighter line this time, he stays on the fron-foot with the ball coming in to him and hits it with the angle to a short midwicket
  , Prasad to Azhar Ali, 2 runs, easily clipped away, meat and drink for Azhar, full on middle, and he watches it on to his bat and hits it to the right of mid-off
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, short on middle stump, the ball doesn't get up as high, Sarfraz jumps and glances it off his pads to deep square-leg
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, a repeat ball, outside off and slightly short, Azhar is happy to watch it as it goes by
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, varies the length this time, goes a bit short outside the off stump, shoulders arms once again
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, stays wide of the stumps this time, another good, positive stride from Azhar and lets it go
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, slightly fuller this time around, hitting off, Azhar gets on the front foot with a good stride and pushed to mid-off
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, shortish length on off stump, Azhar gets behind it and solidly defends of the front foot
  , Pradeep to Azhar Ali, no run, well outside off stump to start after tea, Azhar content to let it go
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, that time the short ball has no venom and Sarfraz has cracked it to midwicket. Just as the groundstaff are asked to come on. Rain stops play again
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, fuller delivery on off stump, pushed to mid-on
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, 2 runs, oh dear! Rash shot, but he's got away with it. Surprise bouncer from Prasad, and it's accurate as well. Sensed Sarfraz wasn't feeling particularly comfortable just hanging around. Tests him and gets the rushed pull in response. Top edge skews high in the air but it's travelled far enough away from Chandimal the keeper who had been tracking it
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, carefully blocks a good length ball on off stump
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, shortish and outside off, nudged to mid-on
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, better defences from Sarfraz. Hides the bat behind his back against a good length ball way outside off
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, no run, just back of a good length at 143kph, defended to one of the gullies
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, no run, good length ball outside off, blocked into the covers
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, FOUR, beautiful shot! He doesn't worry about powering the ball. Just leans into the tap, opens the face to get the ball in front of point.
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, no run, good length ball outside off, with a little shape away, left alone
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, no run, back of a length and outside off, shoulders arms
  , Lakmal to Azhar Ali, 2 runs, clear difference with Azhar's square drives - that front leg gets a lot closer to the pitch of the ball outside off - and slices the ball behind point
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, flash and a miss outside off. Prasad, of course, thinks there's an edge. Miles of daylight between it and the ball though. Still, lots of pressure being piled on
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, lunges forward and outside the crease to knock a good length ball into the covers
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, 136kph, phew! Prasad doesn't like Sarfraz moving about in his crease. Top bouncer on middle and off, the batsman was going to pull and then pulls out of it.
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, gets across to nudge a good length ball from outside off stump into the leg side
  , Prasad to Sarfraz Ahmed, 2 runs, a slice past point with the open face. He's not quite suited to stay put, is Sarfraz. He likes to do a little bit too much to get going
  , Prasad to Azhar Ali, 1 run, good length ball outside off, eases forward to block
  , Lakmal to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, rushes forward to the fuller ball outside off and whips it to mid-on. A little uppishly as well.
