A single each to the two batsmen as Shamsi gives away just five runs in the 48th over.

He drives the last ball through the covers for a couple of runs as Ngidi concedes just five runs in the 49th over.

Magala to bowl the final over. Thakur digs out a full delivery through midwicket for a couple of runs while the bowler has overstepped to concede three runs.
