Pakistan tour of Australia, 3rd ODI: Australia v Pakistan at Adelaide, Jan 26, 2010
Australia won by 40 runs
Played at Adelaide Oval
26 January 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)

Mohammad Asif to Watson, OUT, this time the offcutter works, Watson premeditates another slog over midwicket, but Asif gets this perfectly right, pitches outside off, cuts back in, beats the waft, and hits the top of off

SR Watson b Mohammad Asif 33 (57m 37b 5x4 0x6) SR: 89.18

Australia 63/1   SE Marsh 29* (41b 4x4)   Mohammad Asif 7-0-33-1

Naved-ul-Hasan to Ponting, OUT, oh the impulsive pull gets him! sees something slightly short, and goes back and across to pull, but it's not quite short and beats him, and because it is slightly fuller than pulling length, it gives the impression that it stayed low. It might have too, but it looks worse than it did. Anyhow, hit dead in front and he has to go. The heart rate comes down to 146 beats per minute as he walks back

RT Ponting lbw b Naved-ul-Hasan 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 64/2   SE Marsh 30* (43b 4x4)   Naved-ul-Hasan 2.5-0-11-1

Saeed Ajmal to Marsh, OUT, superb bowling, follows that quicker delivery with a nicely flighted, inviting offbreak outside off, Marsh is drawn out of the crease, as if pulled by a string, and then the ball bounces away from his reach and spins away, beating him, and Taufel doesn't even need to go to the third umpire

SE Marsh st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 83 (131m 113b 7x4 0x6) SR: 73.45

Australia 149/3   MJ Clarke 30* (40b)   Saeed Ajmal 6-0-19-1

Naved-ul-Hasan to White, OUT, lovely legcutter, yanks the wrist at the point of delivery, pitches off, back of a length, moves away a touch, squares him up, takes the outside edge, and White has to go - this should delay the Powerplay further

CL White c †Kamran Akmal b Naved-ul-Hasan 28 (40m 31b 3x4 0x6) SR: 90.32

Australia 204/4   MJ Clarke 56* (73b)   Naved-ul-Hasan 7.4-0-35-2

Umar Gul to Hussey, OUT, Hussey misses 50, looks to walk down the pitch to alter the length, gets too much under a low fulltoss, and they have protection down at long-off where Younis makes no mistake

MEK Hussey c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 49 (37m 28b 5x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Australia 284/5   MJ Clarke 80* (89b 3x4)   Umar Gul 9.3-1-79-1

Umar Gul to Clarke, OUT, he is on a hat-trick, would you believe it? Last over he bowled three back-to-back no-balls, and here he has both the settled batsmen in two deliveries. Clarke walks across, looking to hit it over leg, gets an inside edge on a near-yorker, is castled

MJ Clarke b Umar Gul 80 (150m 90b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Australia 284/6   BJ Haddin 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 9.4-1-79-2
