View dismissal SR Watson b Mohammad Asif 33 57 37 5 0 89.18
12.6 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 63/1
View dismissal SE Marsh st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 83 131 113 7 0 73.45
31.6 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 149/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Naved-ul-Hasan 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
13.5 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 64/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke b Umar Gul 80 150 90 3 0 88.88
49.4 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 284/6
View dismissal CL White c †Kamran Akmal b Naved-ul-Hasan 28 40 31 3 0 90.32
42.4 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 204/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 49 37 28 5 1 175.00
49.3 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 284/5

  Pakistan innings (target: 287 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Salman Butt lbw b McKay 34 45 39 5 0 87.17
11.3 Asoka has struck again, no movement, going with angle, headed towards middle stump, and it had to be pitched outside leg. Asoka de Silva doesn't think so, and raises his finger. It's pitched way outside leg. What's more? It's going over the stumps. Salman Butt is furious as he walks off. No show of dissent at the wicket, though 47/2
View dismissal Kamran Akmal lbw b Harris 1 8 2 0 0 50.00
1.6 given! Akmal moves across to work it to the leg, misses it completely, Harris goes for the shout right away. Asoka de Silva upholds it. Replays show the ball kissing the top of off, and possibly hitting him outside the line. There were two sounds, but definitely no inside edge 14/1
View dismissal Younis Khan c †Haddin b McKay 12 49 31 2 0 38.70
13.3 that's a beast of a delivery to get on a slow pitch, digs it in short, Younis thinks he is safely swaying away, but it chases him all the way back, and kisses the bat on the way. Haddin takes a nice overhead catch, one-handed, full stretch, lovely to watch 60/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf* b Watson 11 6 8 2 0 137.50
12.5 like they say in the Caribbean, after one time is two times! he looks to run it down to third man again, and this is the third inside edge he gets, this time the pad doesn't come around in time to save him 58/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Haddin b Harris 59 78 76 3 0 77.63
32.2 his penchant for the late-cut gets him, looks to manufacture a single, Harris is too close to his body - in fact it nips back in - and gets the outside edge 145/5
View dismissal Fawad Alam b McKay 33 95 52 1 0 63.46
36.4 and finally his shuffle is breached, the shuffle always leaves him exposed to a sharp incoming delivery, and perhaps for the first time tonight, Australia bowl one such delivery to Fawad, and the inside edge cannons into the middle stump 168/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Harris 40 49 29 4 1 137.93
43.2 Harris has roared right back! Perfect delivery, yorker, landing on the crease on front of middle, and squeezes under Afridi's bat. What a ripper! 226/7
View dismissal Naved-ul-Hasan c White b Harris 33 38 28 3 1 117.85
45.1 and Harris gets five, Rana is going for everything, doesn't connect well, and lobs it to midwicket. Harris delighted, what an effort this has been 238/9
View dismissal Umar Gul c †Haddin b Harris 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
43.4 No. 4 for Harris, Gul just throws his bat at this length ball, gets under it, and it goes up perpendicularly, Haddin gets under it and takes a nice catch despite the swirl 226/8
Saeed Ajmal not out 8 16 10 1 0 80.00
View dismissal Mohammad Asif c †Haddin b Hauritz 1 9 9 0 0 11.11
47.4 that's the series for Australia. 3-0! Asif top-edges when looking slog, and Haddin is not letting anybody else take it 246/10
