SR Watson not out 116 146 6 2 79.45
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Younis Khan b Shoaib Akhtar 36 31 7 0 116.12
8.5 Sharp catch by the captain! Haddin makes room to a full ball and tries to scoop it over mid-off, the ball makes contact with the bottom half of the bat and travels quickly to Younis at short mid-off who leaps and takes the catch over his head 58/1
View dismissal MJ North st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 5 15 0 0 33.33
14.6 beaten in flight! North chips down the track on seeing the extra flight but Ajmal cleverly gets it to go through straight and foxes him, Akmal effects an easy stumping. North was probably expecting it to turn away. Ajmal set it up the previous ball by bowling the doosra 83/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 26 43 1 0 60.46
29.1 Gul finally gets a reward, he lands it on a good length on the corridor outside the offstump and Clarke gets a very thin leading edge as he shapes to clip it to the on side, Gul beat the bat on a few occasions in his first spell so it was a matter of time before he claimed a wicket 140/3
View dismissal A Symonds b Shoaib Malik 15 24 1 0 62.50
36.3 tossed up outside off, it's a conventional offspinner and Symonds is a little lazy on the cut and he ends up chopping it onto the base of the offstump 166/4

View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Hauritz 19 52 1 0 36.53
15.6 Hauritz really deserved it! The ball turns very sharply off the rough and Shehzad shapes to cut but the turn foxes him, the ball clips the top flap of his pad bang in front of the stumps, Aleem Dar is convinced, easy decision 56/3
View dismissal Salman Butt run out (Laughlin) 0 0 0 0 -
0.3 Bollinger to Ahmed Shehzad, terrible start for Pakistan! Tucks the ball to the on side and Laughlin runs across to his right, slides and takes aim at the non-striker's end while still on all fours, Butt turns around, it's a direct hit and Butt was nowhere in the scene, it's a no ball as well 2/1
View dismissal Younis Khan* c Hilfenhaus b Hauritz 27 37 3 0 72.97
13.2 he takes a couple of paces down the pitch and tries to go downtown with the turn, he doesn't go through with the shot and hence fails to get the elevation, Hilfenhaus runs to his right and takes the catch at wide long-on 46/2
