View dismissal Shahzaib Hasan lbw b DJ Hussey 0 1 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 64.2 mph, done it! David Hussey strikes! Not the most memorable shot you'll ever see, a massive heave-ho across the line and it crashes into the pads bang in front 0/1
View dismissal Salman Butt c White b O'Keefe 31 29 21 6 0 147.61
6.6 50.3 mph, gone this time! Silence in Birmingham! Butt tried to sweep firmly, but it got a top edge and looped towards White at short fine leg, who slid forward and held a good catch 61/2
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Clarke b Johnson 33 37 25 4 1 132.00
9.4 88.6 mph, gone this time! Banged in short, Akmal tried to wheel an enormous pull shot away but got it very high on the bat, and it looped over midwicket where Clarke ran back to pull off an excellent catch 78/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c O'Keefe b Nannes 12 22 16 0 0 75.00
13.1 86.6 mph, he gets a wicket straight away! Nannes sent one down just short of a length at decent pace, Malik hops back to pull but the ball just rushes on to him and he ends up lapping it ever so tamely to mid-on. Really soft dismissal there, he won't be pleased... but the crowd are, because it brings Boom Boom to the crease! 100/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c & b Nannes 25 28 21 4 0 119.04
16.3 87.7 mph, Umar falls! He hadn't been quite so fluent today, gone for 25 from 21. He had 50 by the time he had faced 21 balls yesterday! Nannes flings one down short and from a wide angle, Umar goes to pull but top-edges straight up in the air. The fielders converge but Nannes calls for it and takes it. The scorecard will read caught-and-bowled but it was quite a catch, went miles in the air. 130/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c †Paine b Nannes 18 18 13 2 1 138.46
16.4 88.7 mph, two in two! Nannes on a hat-trick! Afridi looks to run the ball down to third man but it just bounced a little more than he expected, running off the face/top-edge and through to Paine. Big, big wicket and Australia are right back in this. 130/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq run out (DJ Hussey) 3 6 3 0 0 100.00
17.6 DJ Hussey to Mohammad Amir, drama! What's happened here? Hussey comes round the wicket and bowls one full on off stump. Aamer cracks the ball back to him, and the umpire calls no-ball as he's over-stepped ... but Hussey collects the ball in his follow-through and breaks the stumps at the non-strikers end, where Razzaq had backed up too far! So, it'll be a Free hit, but Australia have a very important wicket! 140/7
Mohammad Amir not out 21 17 11 1 2 190.90
View dismissal Umar Gul b O'Keefe 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
18.1 52.7 mph, But that will! Well, it's just a replay of the last ball, except this time Gul swung across the line of a legitimate delivery and is bowled! A second wicket for O'Keefe on debut 146/8
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar b O'Keefe 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
18.5 53.6 mph, third wicket for O'Keefe! Well, Aamer was nailing them and Shoaib wanted to join in, charging down the track and swinging massively to leg ... except he misses the ball completely and it clatters into the leg stump. Well-bowled by O'Keefe, he has turned the ball an inch today but has been nice and accurate 154/9

View dismissal DA Warner lbw b Mohammad Amir 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
1.5 gone! Aamer strikes early again! It was fired in full and straight, Warner tried to mow it over midwicket and it crashed into his back leg, looks unlucky for the batsman, it was heading past the leg stump with the angle 17/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke* b Mohammad Amir 30 19 17 6 0 176.47
3.6 gone this time! Clarke's chopped on! A bit short, Clarke was looking to cut it away, but it cramped him for room and he under-edged it on to his stumps. Aamer is so excited that he leaps into the departing batsman, and there is a lovely moment where they pat each other on the back 33/3
View dismissal TD Paine c Umar Gul b Shoaib Akhtar 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
2.4 Shoaib strikes! Crowd has gone wild, Afridi running around like a mad man! Tim Paine tried to flap a quick, rising ball into the leg side but couldn't get much on it and it looped towards mid off where Gul took a decent catch over his head 22/2
View dismissal JR Hopes st †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 30 34 28 3 0 107.14
11.2 great piece of work by Kamran Akmal behind the stumps! Afridi drifted a quicker one in to beat the inside edge of the bat as Hopes lunges forward and over-balances, dragging his back leg out. World-class stumping, great effort, and Afridi is ecstatic! 83/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c & b Saeed Ajmal 33 46 27 3 0 122.22
14.4 Ajmal strikes! It was slightly slower through the air, and he pushed his up closer to the batsman as well. Hussey shapes to flick to leg but gets a leading edge to chip the ball ever so softly back to the bowler! Pakistan are flying now, Ajmal has won his battle with Hussey, D. Now for Hussey, M. 113/6
View dismissal CL White c Shoaib Malik b Shahid Afridi 7 10 8 1 0 87.50
13.3 gone this time! White tries to clear the boundary again, on the leg side this time. He hit right across the line and got a huge leading edge, the ball went really high but not too far, and Shoaib Malik circles underneath to hold onto a regulation catch! Advantage: Pakistan. 104/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b Umar Gul 25 21 14 4 0 178.57
17.4 Hussey goes! Gul strikes! Edgbaston erupts! Hussey gets low down and attempts the reverse-sweep, but is struck on the front pad on the line of off stump. Gul has rent the skies of Birmingham with the appeal, and the umpire agrees. Good decision, that would've taken out middle and leg 136/8
View dismissal SNJ O'Keefe run out (†Kamran Akmal/Saeed Ajmal) 5 10 8 1 0 62.50
16.5 from Saeed Ajmal, this is an interesting one... the ball squirts behind square on the leg side off an inside edge and Hussey charges through for the single, O'Keefe is late to respond to the call as the throw is fired to the non-striker's end. Ajmal collects and breaks the stumps, but lets go of the ball as he does ... tough one for the third umpire... That's out! He only let go of the ball after the stumps were disturbed. Huge cheer from the crowd as the decision came up on the big screen! 127/7
View dismissal MG Johnson lbw b Mohammad Amir 0 7 1 0 0 0.00
18.1 pinpoint yorker from Aamer, strikes Johnson on the back foot! Huge appeal, Asad Rauf thinks about it for a long time and eventually raises the finger! Brave decision, that looked to be sliding very leg-stumpy 139/9

View dismissal SW Tait run out (Umar Gul) 2 6 4 0 0 50.00
19.4 Umar Gul to Nannes, it's all over! Nannes jams out another yorker, confusion in the running as both he and Tait are unsure whether to try and steal a single. Gul charges through after his follow-through, picks up the ball and whips the bail off to end the game.The Pakistan team converge, all smiles and the partisan crowd cheer their victory 151/10
