Commentary

  , Imran Khan to Smith, no run,
  , Rahat Ali to Smith, 1 run, full and on the pads, tucked away to deep square leg for a single
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, 3 runs, full and slanted at the pads, Rogers is happy to see it there and flicks it confidently towards the deep fine leg boundary
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, 2 runs, back of a length and outside off, Rogers punches it through the covers
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, back of a length and outside off, Rogers opens the face and slices it behind point
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, 2 runs, yorker gone wrong at 139 kph, Rogers works the full toss through to deep fine leg
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, fuller delivery that ducks back in at Rogers, who judges it well and nudges through midwicket
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, 1 run, chops a shortish delivery outside off through the gully fielder.
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, no run, plonks the bat down in front of his pad as he keeps out a tossed up delivery
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, no run, waits on a slider on middle and leg and blocks it capably
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, no run, nips down the track to push a tossed up delivery back at the bowler
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, no run, oooh, that's wonderful use if flight. Lured the batsman forward and then made the ball dip on him to claim the outside edge. But Rogers is wily as well. Holds the bat with soft hands and ensures the outside edge doesn't carry
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Rogers, no run, tossed up outside off, Rogers is happy to watch it hit the rough and leap away to the keeper's gloves
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, 1 run, lovely stride forward to meet a fuller ball and he drills it to the right of mid-off. Have to give it to Rogers here, he's not letting those unplayables play on his mind for too long
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, lovely straight blade coming down on a fuller ball tailing in on off stump
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, he tried to pull the bat away just in the nick of time, does quite succeed. Rahat's posing problems here! Gets a back of a length delivery to jag back off the pitch this time. Nearly lured the outside edge again.
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, curls in a little too much in the air, Rogers is forced to play around his front pad because of it and weathers down a leg before appeal. Would have slid down leg, that one
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, good length ball just outside off, Rogers is eager to get on the front foot now and pushes it to mid-off
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, you little beauty! That kind of trouble is usually brought about by a spinner on a pitch as work as this, but Rahat gets a back of a good length delivery to straighten off the deck and beat the outside edge. Rogers is bemused
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, that's kept low! Smith chose to play back to a good length ball and just about manages to get his back down in front of off stump
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, much slower through the air and that drifted away a touch too, Smith is forward to smother it. Bit of turn there
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, gets down the track to defend a flighted ball outside off
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, a little more turn, nothing drastic though and Smith defends carefully
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, another good length that holds its line, but the pace off the pitch is slow enough for Smith to be alert to that fact and block
  , Mohammad Hafeez to Smith, no run, stays back to a good length ball on middle and taps it to short leg
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, no run, 136kph, was that reverse? That's the only reason Pakistan would opt for a quick bowler and this fuller delivery shaped in rather nicely. Started outside off though so Rogers can leave it well alone
  , Rahat Ali to Smith, 1 run, shortish and on the pads, Smith makes it look even worse as he jumps across to off stump and tucks it to deep fine leg
  , Rahat Ali to Smith, no run, good length and pushed across the right-hander, Smith is happy not to fiddle with that
  , Rahat Ali to Rogers, 1 run, full and fired in on the pads, Rogers works it behind square leg
  , Rahat Ali to Smith, 1 run, fired in full on middle, Smith picks it away quite watchfully through to deep midiwcket
