17.2 48.9 mph, got him, that instinct for skipping out gets the captain, sharp work from Kamran, Clarke misses the work to leg as the good length offbreak spins in past his pads, and Kamran is in position to take the ball and whip the bails off, Ajmal was sure immediately that was gone, Clarke is furious as he walks back 88/2

View dismissal GJ Bailey c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 1 7 6 0 0 16.66
23.5 53.4 mph, confusion, too much confusion, they have no clue what is hitting them, Australia, trying the sweep as a release stroke, doosra again, straightens on the middle stump, gloved in the air, slip has already moved to leg slip in anticipation of the sweep, the ball goes towards where he was originally, Kamran does well to react quickly, move to his right and take it 108/4
View dismissal MS Wade b Abdur Rehman 22 44 46 1 0 47.82
35.3 56.5 mph, there is the breakthrough, Rehman has done it for Pakistan, big gap between bat and pad as Wade pushes forward eagerly to a flighted length ball, it spins in through the gate and strikes off 159/5
