100-Run Stand for Babar and Fakhar

Breakthrough! Kuldeep Removes Babar

Kuldeep Yadav provides a big breakthrough to India! Babar Azam has been bowled for 48 (off 57 balls.) And with that, the 104-run stand between Babar and Fakhar becomes to an end. Virat Kohli has got to be breathing a sigh of relief. In fact, all Indian fans are.

Mohammad Hafeez is the new batsman at the crease.

Wicket! Kuldeep Strikes Again

Kuldeep returns for the 26th over, and removes Fakhar Zaman for 62 on the second ball.

Big wicket for India. The opening batsman had been looking solid but has been caught out by Chahal. The 'Kul-Cha' combo never disappoints!

(Pakistan: 126/3 in 25.2 overs, need 211 runs off 148 balls.)

OUT! Hafeez Falls to Pandya

Fourth wicket down for Pakistan. Mohammad Hafeez walks back to the hut for 9 after being caught out by Shankar off a ball by Pandya.

Pakistan are now getting into trouble.

Hardik Pandya dismisses Shoaib Malik for a duck, and is now on course for a hat-trick!

Pakistan have lost four wickets in 4 overs. From 117/1, they are now tottering at 129/5. Is a collapse on the cards?

(Pakistan: 129/5 in 27 overs, need 208 runs off 23 overs)
