Bit the ‘Men in Green’ were put back on track by captain Rohail Nazir and Haider Ali, who put on 62 runs for the third wicket. But once Haider Ali was out after scoring an impressive half-century, Pakistan needed another partnership to claw their way back in the match.

Qasim Akram was the new man in and he looked to provide support to the in form captain Nazir. Akram pushed on on the off side on the third delivery of the 31st over bowled by Ravi Bishnoi and charged down the pitch for a single. His partner Nazir responded initially but soon turned back. It was a race between Akram and Nazir to reach the non-striker’s end. Nazir won that race and Atharva Ankolekar threw the ball towards the striker’s end where Jurel whipped off the bails.
