View dismissal Salman Butt c †Haddin b Bollinger 2 3 0 0 66.66
0.3 gone! Full and wide, moved away, chased it, went for an expansive drive, got a thick edge and Haddin dived well to his left to snap a sharp one 2/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Ferguson b Hauritz 43 81 2 0 53.08
31.5 his patience was tested and finally, when offered some flight, failed to resist the temptation. Landed full on the off stump, went for a mighty slog-sweep over midwicket, it spun in, took the top-edge and stuck safely in the palms of Ferguson at long-on 116/4
View dismissal Younis Khan* b Bracken 7 7 1 0 100.00
3.1 drags it onto the stumps, short of a good length outside off, gets a hint of inward movement, Younis plays at it, away from his body, gets a thin edge to clip the off stump 12/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Clarke 34 75 1 0 45.33
24.4 plumb, tossed up on middle, went for the sweep after three dot balls, tried to get it behind square, it straightened, he missed and was struck on the back pad in line with the stumps. Bowden raised his finger immediately 80/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik lbw b Bollinger 27 33 1 0 81.81

View dismissal Shahid Afridi c North b Bollinger 40 40 4 0 100.00
44.1 gone! Big wicket! Short on middle, gets more bounce and is pacy, bowled at 135 kmph, goes for a mighty pull, gets the top edge as it comes on a little too quickly and North takes an easy catch at mid-on 174/7
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Clark 1 5 0 0 20.00
