    LIVE CRICKET SCORE: DD 72/1 in 9 Overs, BATTING: Kumar Sangakkara 27(23) , Nasir Hossain 32(27): Time for strategic time out! This match is entertaining in its own way. Sangakkara plays some glorious shots while looks impatient at times, mistiming the ball. These two need to spend more time at the crease. Meanwhile, a chance is produced to get him out but ‘keeper drops it. Afridi is annoyed but pulls off a fun act dropping the ball near Mohammad Shahzad who lies down in disappointment.

Meanwhile, Afridi pulls off a stunner as he catches Maroof at square leg.
