Shot. They're going after these second-string bowlers now. Crucial they get runs against the pace part-timers.

Babar Azam is a good example of how being a good white-ball batsman and being a good test batsmen are very different tasks. He squares up so easily but that barely matters in ODIs/T20Is. Rohit Sharma is similar, though his technique problems are different to Babar's -- great batsman in ODIs, but can't make it in test cricket.

Fakhar starting to cut loose.

Pakistan really need to be aiming for at least a run a ball off the spinners. Keep the pressure on and attack Shankar and Pandya.

Intent gone with the spinners into the attack. Pakistan need to counterattack here or India could wrap this up very soon.

Spinners all over Azam here. Couldn't even meet the run rate after a 6 on the first ball. Critical moment in the match. Think Azam gets going or gets out very soon.

Shot. Plenty of runs on offer if they can minimise the damage done by Kuldeep and Bumrah.

That was needless. Gotta pick your battles. You don't go after Kuldeep when he's bowling like this.

Silly Fakhar

Hard to see Pakistan winning now, needed either him or Babar to score a ton.

Shoaib Malik is surely past his use-by date?

He's been playing since I was 13 or thereabouts.

EDIT: More like 10. Didn't realise he was around in the 1990's.

Shoaib not having a great tournament, that's 2 ducks in a row now.
