Match Abandoned

18.6Rashid to Sohail

0
Stumping chance missed! Sohail survives. Rashid comes up with a top spinner around middle and off, Sohail premeditates his charge down the track as he attempts for a big shot across the line. The ball skids past his blade and Buttler doesn't collect it properly mainly due to the extra bounce. The ball gets stuck to the left of Jos as he initially looks to take the bails off with his right hand. He then realizes and just quietly jogs across to the other end as Haris plants his bat in quickly. An opportunity missed for England.

11.6Plunkett to Azam

W
OUT! Just as I said the ball was coming off the middle, it now takes the outside edge and Babar has to depart! On a length outside off, Azam looks to drive but makes a mistake as he attempts that shot without much foot movement. The ball seams away off the surface very slightly and that causes it to take a faint outside edge. It carries to Buttler who takes a straightforward catch. England have their second and the budding stand of 35 has been broken. Azam who was looking really good will be disappointed now that he has to go.

The ball is now coming onto the bat nicely. Outside off, the ball is crunched off the middle of the bat of Azam towards point. Made a delightful sound!
