Pakistan tour of Australia, 5th ODI: Australia v Pakistan at Perth, Jan 31, 2010
Australia won by 2 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)
31 January 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)

Harris to Salman Butt, OUT, oh what a soft dismissal, four deliveries wide of him and left alone, Harris bowls in the same area again, and Butt chases it. No feet involved, just a tentative push away from the body, and the edge settles comfortably in Haddin's gloves

Salman Butt c †Haddin b Harris 0 (3m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 0/1   Khalid Latif 0* (0b)   RJ Harris 0.5-0-0-1

Johnson to Khalid Latif, OUT, and just like that, another one goes, stays back to a fullish delivery, plays in front of his body, and it goes in the air to the left of Johnson, whose left hand pushes Pakistan down to 2 for 0! It wasn't even a slower one - 146ks. If somebody's slower ball comes at 146ks, though, devil save us from the faster one. There was a puff of dust when the ball pitched, so it could just have stopped at Latif

Khalid Latif c & b Johnson 0 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 0/2   Younis Khan 0* (1b)   MG Johnson 0.5-0-0-1

McKay to Younis Khan, OUT, another Aussie bowler gets a wicket in his first over - actually all three have struck with their fifth deliveries! And another soft dismissal here, this is a length delivery fairly wide of off, Younis gets half a move forward and pushes at it away from his body, the edge is snapped by Haddin

Younis Khan c †Haddin b McKay 3 (34m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 13.63

Pakistan 16/3   Shoaib Malik 13* (21b 1x4)   CJ McKay 0.5-0-0-1

Johnson to Umar Akmal, OUT, what a ripper from Johnson, first the short lifter tucks Umar Akmal up, and almost by habit Umar sets off for a run even though he has been pushed deep inside the crease, Malik doesn't hesitate either. This time the ball hasn't gone too far, and Johnson comes around, fields, and finds Malik short with an underarm flick

Shoaib Malik run out 36 (95m 62b 3x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

Pakistan 76/4   Umar Akmal 30* (53b 2x4)   MG Johnson 6.3-1-18-1

McKay to Umar Akmal, OUT, slower ball again, but the drop in pace is not as big, 132ks, and it's full and straight, and Akmal is too early into the slog shot over midwicket, and ends up playing all around it

Umar Akmal b McKay 67 (131m 102b 2x4 1x6) SR: 65.68

Pakistan 158/5   Fawad Alam 41* (48b 2x4)   CJ McKay 7.4-3-28-2

Harris to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Boom Boom goes Bust - another bouncer, Afridi pulls off the front foot, gets it high on the bat, and it lobs towards mid-off, where Hauritz takes a smart catch running forward

Shahid Afridi c Hauritz b Harris 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Pakistan 162/6   Fawad Alam 43* (50b 2x4)   RJ Harris 6.4-1-21-2

Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, makes room and toe-ends straight to extra cover, White wouldn't miss this one

Sarfraz Ahmed c White b Johnson 6 (18m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Pakistan 180/7   Fawad Alam 55* (62b 3x4)   MG Johnson 8.5-1-34-2

Harris to Naved-ul-Hasan, OUT, that's No. 3 for Harris, the third five-for is still on! Rana is expecting a yorker and stays in the crease, Harris doesn't go for the yorker, instead a fast and straight length delivery, aimed for the off stump, Rana pushes at it away from his body, and loses his off stump

Naved-ul-Hasan b Harris 8 (5m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Pakistan 189/8   Fawad Alam 56* (63b 3x4)   RJ Harris 9-1-32-3

McKay to Iftikhar Anjum, OUT, Ponting picks this one late, and then virtually flies across to hold onto this one. McKay goes fast and follows a backing-away Rao, and gets out a limp shot, lobbed towards midwicket where Ponting does the rest

Iftikhar Anjum c Ponting b McKay 16 (10m 8b 2x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

Pakistan 212/9   Fawad Alam 63* (69b 4x4)   CJ McKay 9.2-3-35-3

McKay to Fawad Alam, OUT, Yes he can! Alam gets too much under this length delivery and can't clear mid-on

Fawad Alam c Hauritz b McKay 63 (110m 70b 4x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Pakistan 212/10   Mohammad Asif 0* (0b)   CJ McKay 9.3-3-35-4
