View dismissal MJ Guptill c Wahab Riaz b Mohammad Irfan 11 23 17 1 1 64.70
4.6 caught at long leg! The bouncer rises quickly on Guptill, who pulls but top edges it. The ball swirls high in the air towards long leg, where Wahab Riaz runs forward and to his left to judge the catch superbly. It was a lot like the chance Rahat Ali famously dropped off Wahab himself in the World Cup quarterfinal, giving Shane Watson a reprieve. 23/1
View dismissal TWM Latham c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 11 28 15 1 0 73.33
5.2 An appeal for caught behind is turned down and Pakistan are going to review the not out decision. Amir sent down another sharp bouncer that rose rapidly on Latham, who was trying to hook from his crease. There is no conclusive deviation, though it looks like one. Hot Spot doesn't show anything as the ball whizzes past the glove. There is a blip on the real time snicko though. Pakistan were super confident of their appeal. The third umpire decides that the spike on real time snicko is enough to overturn the decision. Latham has to go. 25/2
View dismissal KS Williamson* b Anwar Ali 10 55 17 0 0 58.82
15.3 bowled him! Williamson has not looked in touch today and he's dragged this one on. The ball pitched on a good length outside off and shaped in just a touch. Williamson drove at it with hard hands and the ball crashed into leg stump off the edge. 70/3
View dismissal HM Nicholls b Anwar Ali 82 172 111 7 0 73.87
44.2 dragged it on! After a series of short balls, Ali bowls a full one outside off, and Nicholls attempts the booming drive through the off side. He gets an inside edge on to his stumps. Nicholls walks off to applause from the full house at Basin Reserve. He's made his best score today, and in really tough circumstances. 203/8
View dismissal GD Elliott b Anwar Ali 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
15.5 what a ball that is! Anwar Ali has bowled a ripper. It pitched on a fuller length outside off, drawing Elliott into the front foot drive through the off side. The ball moved in late and quite sharply, beating the inside edge this time and hitting the stumps full on 70/4
View dismissal CJ Anderson c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 10 23 19 1 0 52.63
20.4 caught behind! Amir has his second wicket! He pitched short of a length and the ball bounced a bit more than usual on a tight line outside off. Anderson stayed back and pushed at the delivery with hard hands, trying to punch through cover. The edge flew through comfortably to Sarfraz 93/5
View dismissal L Ronchi c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 5 7 7 1 0 71.42
22.1 Ronchi's gone! Amir's got his third! Ronchi stays in his crease and wafts at a good length ball that slants across the right-hander from over the wicket. Sarfraz snaffles another edge 99/6
View dismissal MJ Santner c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Irfan 48 62 63 5 0 76.19
38.4 caught on the pull! Irfan's short of a length ball rises quickly and cramps the left-hander for room from over the wicket. Santner's pull results in a top edge and Sarfraz runs to his right to catch it around short fine leg. 178/7
MJ Henry not out 48 55 30 4 4 160.00
MJ McClenaghan retired hurt 31 30 18 3 2 172.22
49.5 from Anwar Ali, oh no, oh no, McClenaghan has been smashed in the face by a short ball after he missed the pull. The ball flew through the gap between the peak of the helmet and the grille and smashed into the region near his eye. The force was so much that the ball rebounded on to the grille off his face. That back padding of the helmet has been dislodged and is lying on the pitch. The crowd cheers as McClenaghan gets off his feet and begins to walk off the ground, there's a small swelling already. 276/8

View dismissal Azhar Ali* c Henry b Elliott 19 33 35 1 1 54.28
8.4 he's slogged this straight up in the air and Henry settles under it at mid-on. Azhar planted his foot forward and swung across the line at an offcutter. The bat turned in his hand as he made contact and he ended up slicing it in the air. Azhar's match is over, he's not had a good day after the first hour and a half. 33/1

10.6 he's holed out to mid off this time! Elliott has a second wicket and he would not have been bowling so early if not for the injury to McClenaghan.
