  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Mohammad Amir to Katich, OUT, run out! forcing off the back foot to cover, Watson runs through for the single, Katich takes a few steps down before retreating, both batsmen end up at the same end with the throw into the bowler's end to affect the run out, neither batsmen wants to leave and replays suggest both got to the striker's end at the same time. Watson is the one ruled out.

SR Watson run out 93 (243m 191b 11x4 0x6) SR: 48.69

Australia 182/1   SM Katich 78* (174b 5x4)   Mohammad Amir 12.1-3-35-0

Mohammad Asif to Katich, OUT, caught! slashes at a ball short outside off, cut away in the air to Salman Butt at backward point who takes a good catch. A similar position to where Umar Akmal dropped Katich this morning.

SM Katich c Salman Butt b Mohammad Asif 98 (303m 226b 5x4 0x6) SR: 43.36

Australia 233/2   RT Ponting 30* (35b 5x4)   Mohammad Asif 14.3-3-46-1

Mohammad Asif to Ponting, OUT, caught! forward to a fullish delivery outside off, Ponting is looking to drive through the off side, but the movement deceives him as he only manages an outside edge which is collected cleanly by Misbah-ul-Haq at second slip

RT Ponting c Misbah-ul-Haq b Mohammad Asif 57 (100m 60b 7x4 0x6) SR: 95.00

Australia 291/3   MEK Hussey 30* (28b 4x4)   Mohammad Asif 17.2-3-62-2

Saeed Ajmal to Hussey, OUT, coming round the wicket and fires it on a good length on the off, Hussey bends low to sweep, misses and is struck on the pads, Doctrove's given him, but Hussey has decided to call for the review, just a hint of away spin on that one and the impact appeared to be just marginally in line, would have clipped off, a tough call there, took plenty of time but the right decision has been made

MEK Hussey lbw b Saeed Ajmal 82 (176m 113b 10x4 0x6) SR: 72.56

Australia 382/4   NM Hauritz 35* (93b 5x4)   Saeed Ajmal 38.5-3-124-1

Abdur Rauf to Hauritz, OUT, lbw! full length delivery, taken on the pad trying to flick the ball to the on side, the bowler's appeal for lbw is turned down, so the fielding side calls for a referral. Hawkeye shows that it is absolutely plumb, hitting the batsman in line with middle and off and going on to hit middle stump three-quarters of the way up

NM Hauritz lbw b Abdur Rauf 75 (193m 152b 8x4 1x6) SR: 49.34

Australia 454/5   MJ Clarke 28* (34b 1x4)   Abdur Rauf 23-4-86-1
