View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Umar Gul 8 12 11 1 0 72.72
2.5 and Umar Gul is back and roaring for Pakistan in his first over, serving up ones that swing in and swing away, this one was angled in and fuller than the previous ones, swung in a tad as well, caught Watson on the pad again, and looks to be alright, have to wait for replays, hit in front of middle, below the knee rolls, most umpires will give them 12/1
View dismissal DA Warner c & b Mohammad Hafeez 22 40 25 2 0 88.00
8.3 soft dismissal for Warner, leading edge pops up tamely to the bowler, closing the face a bit to try and work the fullish ball to leg, it straightens, Warner trying to check the push in the end, in vain, and Hafeez consumes one more left-hander 46/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Shoaib Malik b Sohail Tanvir 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
3.2 and one more, Tanvir slows it up, curls it away appreciably again, fullish length has Hussey reaching out to that widish line, and extra cover accepts the dolly gleefully, Hussey was really feeling for that one way from the body, he was walking outside with momentum as he pushed 13/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 14 32 19 0 0 73.68
10.3 hello, they continue to fall, and Pakistan are catching them all, Bailey goes down for the slog-sweep to a full delivery, and finds deep square leg, who leaps and takes it high, and safely 52/5
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Saeed Ajmal b Raza Hasan 3 4 4 0 0 75.00
9.3 maiden international wicket for Raza Hasan, Hussey holing out to long on as he did in the third ODI, trying to clear the man, takes a step out and lofts it hard, fielder was in from the boundary and took it above his head 51/4
View dismissal CL White b Saeed Ajmal 15 34 22 0 0 68.18
17.2 this is a demolition really now, skiddy offspinner from round the stumps, White playing from the crease, it hurries on from middle, brushes pad and strikes the stumps 81/8
View dismissal MS Wade c Imran Nazir b Raza Hasan 6 20 13 0 0 46.15
15.3 slog-sweep, from outside off, sails high in the air, and sails down to deep midwicket 72/6
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Nasir Jamshed b Saeed Ajmal 4 8 7 0 0 57.14
17.1 Maxwell falls too, now, he had looked very comfortable against Ajmal in the third ODI, has to go for it now, slog-sweeps hard, but only hits it high in the air to deep square leg 81/7
View dismissal PJ Cummins c Umar Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 1 10 4 0 0 25.00
19.1 wide ball back of a length from round the stumps, swung straight to long on 88/9
XJ Doherty not out 6 11 8 0 0 75.00
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus c †Kamran Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
19.3 sharp, sharp take from Kamran, give the man some credit for this, I say, Tanvir spearing it in full from wide of the crease, and round the stumps, Kamran is moving down the leg side alright, but there is a huge deflection off a thick inside edge, the ball is dying at Kamran's left foot, but he gets the gloves down in time, and pouches it as he tumbles down 89/10
