Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, FOUR, that is some shot to open the innings! Full ball and Sibanda meets it with a perfectly straight bat and drives it past the bowler.
Sohail Khan to Chibhabha, FOUR, full ball outside off stump, Sibanda has enough space to drive and he goes hard at it, lofting the ball flat over the infield.
Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, SIX, shot! Sibanda goes down on one knee and lifts a full ball outside leg stump over the long-leg boundary, terrific hand-eye co-ordination, just used the bowler’s pace.
Saeed Ajmal to Chibhabha, OUT, he’s struck first ball. And that is some catch! Chibhabha decides to attack Ajmal right away and tries to loft him to the long-on boundary. He doesn’t hit it well but manages to hit it over the inner circle. Yasir is at mid-on, though, and he runs back quickly and takes the catch over his right shoulder

Junaid Khan to Sibanda, OUT, this was coming. Sibanda has looked increasingly restless and he tries to break free, attempting a big hit down the ground towards long on, he ends up slicing it high in the air towards point. Hafeez runs back and judges the catch well
