View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* lbw b Starc 4 6 5 0 0 80.00
1.1 85.7 mph, you should have seen the swing! Starc comes over the wicket and gets it to swing back in sharply from the off stump line, Hafeez tried to flick it away but didn't read the movement, the umpire took his time, landed on off and replays showed that crashing into middle and leg 5/1
View dismissal Imran Nazir c Bailey b Watson 14 27 13 2 0 107.69
5.4 83.6 mph, Watson gets away with another full toss! Hardly a wicket-taking delivery but everything's going his way, Nazir meets it outside the leg stump and the ball hit the bottom half of the bat and spooned tamely to mid-off, easiest of catches, Nazir wouldn't want to see a replay of that, Nazir should have hit it straighter 29/2
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Warner b Doherty 55 60 46 4 2 119.56
14.5 61.3 mph, holed out to long-on! Tossed up and he stayed at the crease and tried to loft him downtown, the ball dipped and landed safely in Warner's palms in front of the rope 108/3
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c White b Starc 32 43 26 1 1 123.07
15.1 84.9 mph, Pakistan have lost their well set pair in a matter of three balls! Starc begins his new spell by bowling full from round the wicket, Kamran made room and tried to hammer it wide of extra cover but the fielder there, White, took a sharp catch falling to his right 108/4

View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Watson b Cummins 22 17 17 2 1 129.41
18.4 73.5 mph, short ball outside off and Razzaq made himself a lot of room to carve that over the off side, he was targeting the third man boundary but the ball swirled just behind backward point, Watson takes the catch behind the circle 136/5

19.2 84.4 mph, that's as much as it gets with Afridi these days, Starc swung it in sharply from round the wicket, Afridi shuffled a long way across and exposed his stumps and his leg stump went back a couple of yards 144/6
