Kevin O’Brien’s fighting innings has come to an end early on Day 5, off the first ball he faced today. He is disappointed with himself. Looking to drive a delivery wide outside the off, he edges it to Haris Sohail at slips. Careless shot but a fine effort. He walks back to a rousing reception.
Tyron Kane has got the mark early in the day and brought up a half-century stand for the eighth wicket. The lead is now closing in on the 150-run mark. Mohammad Amir has started the proceedings for Pakistan.
