Here is ball by ball script from ESPNcricinfo Commentary :
7.4 Top of off, 144kph. [Shubman] Gill is looking to make room and use his pace to go over the covers, but Malik keeps his length, keeps his line, and crashes through to the off stump. 69/1.
9.2 Great field placement. Third man is fine, almost a back stop. Malik bowls the bouncer, Pandya is clearly late on it, and the top edge goes to that fine third man. Malik is blowing kisses in the sky. He is on top of the world. 85/2.
13.2 Bullseye! 152kph heat-seeking missile explodes at the base of middle and leg stump! It was going to take something electric to remove Saha and Malik provides that by lighting up the stumps before Saha can jam the bat down in time while trying to back away to access the off side. 122/3.
15.5 Bullseye again! A 50-pointer rips out the middle of middle stump at 148kph! Fired on a good length, [David] Miller goes for a big heave over the leg side and instead of hearing bat on ball, it’s the harsh and unmistakable sound of ball on timber! 139/4.
15.6 One more bullseye! Five for Malik! Fullish length on middle at 146kph, [Abhinav] Manohar fiddles at this more in hope than belief, trying desperately to see off Malik’s final ball before waging battle against someone else. Beats the bat and a faint deflection off the back leg onto middle and off stump halfway up. Malik runs away with arms aloft and kisses the sky! 140/5.
