View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c DJ Hussey b Pattinson 4 26 12 0 0 33.33
4.4 75.8 mph, soft dismissal! He hits it straight to short extra cover, it was on a good length outside off and Hafeez stabbed at it, didn't go through with the shot and it lobbed straight to David Hussey, Hafeez's ordinary one-day form continues 20/1
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c †Wade b Starc 23 50 30 3 0 76.66
9.5 85.9 mph, good comeback by Starc and better reflexes from Wade! Starc hit the deck harder this time to vary his length, there was extra bounce which Jamshed wasn't ready for, he tried to fend it off outside the off stump but the ball took the top half of the bat and Wade jumped to his left and took it 40/3
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Johnson b Pattinson 5 8 6 1 0 83.33
6.1 88.1 mph, and another soft dismissal! Chipped to mid-on, it was shaping in full on the pads and Azhar was looking to chip it over the on side, the trouble was the bat turned as he made contact and hence mistimed it, Johnson jogged to his right and caught it on the fall 28/2
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Starc 56 124 77 2 2 72.72
35.3 86.3 mph, and the start of the Powerplay brings a wicket! Shafiq was trying to repeat the shot from the previous ball, made a lot of room to spank it through cover, Starc fired it full and on the stumps from round the wicket, Shafiq made no contact and lost his stumps 160/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* b Christian 26 65 48 1 0 54.16
24.4 69.6 mph, Christian breaks the stand and Misbah perishes trying to be aggressive, Christian took a lot of pace off the ball with his offcutter, the keeper was up to the stumps to stifle the batsman, Misbah tried to hoick it over the on side and got a thick inside edge to the stumps 99/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Bailey b Starc 52 82 55 2 2 94.54
41.1 85.9 mph, Starc picks up five! Starc continues his round the wicket line to Umar Akmal, he sprays it full and wide and invites the lofted shot, Umar made room and tried to clear the infield but didn't get the elevation, straight to Bailey at cover 180/8
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Clarke b Starc 4 18 14 0 0 28.57
39.3 very soft dismissal in the end! Starc pitched it on a good length from round the wicket, Kamran was trying to tuck it over the on side but he ended up playing it too early and tamely chipped it to Clarke at midwicket 174/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Clarke b Starc 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
39.5 85.7 mph, gone first ball! Clever move to bring in a slip because he has hit it straight there! Starc went back to over the wicket for Afridi, pitched it up on the off stump and drew him forward to drive, thick outside edge to Clarke, great captaincy and Starc has four wickets 175/7
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c DJ Hussey b Johnson 1 12 6 0 0 16.66
42.2 the decline continues! Poor shot by Tanvir, not sure what he was attempting there, made room and tried to scoop it over mid-on, miscued it and Hussey ran across to his right and took a simple catch 184/9
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal b Pattinson 8 21 14 1 0 57.14
45.1 82.3 mph, well we didn't need the extra time after all! Pattinson fires it full and straight on the leg stump, Ajmal couldn't resist the big shot but played too early, the ball went straight through and pushed back the leg stump 198/10

View dismissal DA Warner b Mohammad Hafeez 5 12 11 1 0 45.45
3.4 swing and a miss! Warner will not want to see the replay, tossed up on off and middle and he was down on his knee slogging against the spin, missed everything and hit the stumps 13/1
View dismissal MS Wade c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 10 42 29 0 0 34.48
10.6 49.9 mph, strikes in his first over! Poor shot by Wade, he tried slogging him over midwicket, looked like the wrong 'un, the top edge swirled in the air and Misbah ran across and took it very close to Afridi 42/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 66 138 96 5 0 68.75
33.5 51.9 mph, Hafeez has got the Big Fish! Trapped on the back foot and quite straightforward, bowls it flatter on middle and leg, Clarke was looking to work it away off the back foot, the ball skidded and hit his pads in front of the leg stump 121/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b Saeed Ajmal 5 17 12 0 0 41.66
15.1 He's been given lbw and Hussey is reviewing it! Hussey is plumb in front I'm afraid, it landed on off and middle and straightened, Hussey was trapped on the back foot and the ball would have crashed onto the stumps, no inside edge, straightforward for Bowden 57/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Misbah-ul-Haq b Saeed Ajmal 3 13 7 0 0 42.85
17.6 54.7 mph, the spinners have really pulled things back here! Caught at slip, after inducing an edge off Clarle earlier in the over Ajmal gets one off Hussey, Hussey didn't read the doosra, he was forward to defend and the outside edge went straight to Misbah at first slip 67/4
GJ Bailey not out 57 143 88 1 1 64.77
View dismissal GJ Maxwell lbw b Saeed Ajmal 38 53 38 2 1 100.00
45.3 Maxwell has thrown it away with a reverse sweep! Ajmal was bowling round the wicket, the batsman missed it completely and was struck in line with the stumps, not sure why Maxwell attempted this stunt yet again against Ajmal. But hang on...that pitched outside the leg stump, so Bowden didn't exactly get it right there 184/6
