Mohali ending

Pak lead by 198. over 3 hours of play to go. 4 wickets in hand.
will they set a target?

4.35pm here
Akmal finally gone. 37 overs to go, 3 wickets. Tthere's only the slimmest of chances, the match really does look mostly dead now...
But what a fantastic fighting knowck from the keeper. after 10/3 and then the subsequent departure of Inzy and Youhana, who would have thought they would be able to make it this far. Razzaq killed his natural game completely and hung in there but hats off to Akmal for an innings that had plenty of shots and ensured, through its scoring rate, that they never felt bogged down.
Will we (again) look back on the slow progress post Sehwag and wonder if we let the initiative go there?
