43.5Khan to Shahidi

0
Is that a drop catch? Well, Azam is in pain here. That was hit very hard but if it was a chance, it should have been taken. Replays though shows it was a chance. Has Azam just dropped the match here. Shahidi looks to play the slog sweep but due to the ball being very full. He fails to get under it. Hits it flat towards mid-wicket where Azam can't hang on.
