Review again! Now, Fakhar Zaman reviews this LBW decision against him. But this looks out. No bat on that one. Three reds on Ball Tracker!
11.1 overs (0 Run) OUT! LBW! Well, it's not the wicket of Babar Azam but Fakhar Zaman is an equally big scalp. The skipper comes back on to bowl and gets the breakthrough right away. Mohammad Nabi angles it in from around the stumps and Fakhar Zaman gets down on one knee to sweep it away. Zaman misses and gets hit on the back thigh. The umpire raises his finger after thinking for a while and Pakistan review it again.

Can this wicket change the momentum of the game? 73 runs needed in 53 balls.
Change. Mohammad Nabi (2-0-22-0) brings himself back on.

Azam gets rapped on the pads as he attempts to flick and the umpire does raise his finger. Babar Azam takes the review and the UltraEdge shows that the ball did not hit the bat but the Ball Tracker does show that it was going on to miss the leg stump. How huge could this review prove to be?
