View dismissal DA Warner c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Amir 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 88.6 mph, Warner is gone for a duck. They are dancing in the aisles. It was the full length delivery going away from Warner who cuts it straight to backward point. That boy Umar again! What a start for Pakistan. What a tame dismissal. A very soft shot. 1/1
View dismissal SR Watson c Abdur Rehman b Mohammad Amir 16 13 9 2 1 177.77
2.3 89.1 mph, What a moment this. The openers are back in the hutch. Pressure. Watson has hit a full delivery straight to long-on! The Pakistan dug-out is celebrating. The fans are screaming in joy. Enter Pup. The Australian captain is in the middle. What can he do now? 26/2
View dismissal BJ Haddin st †Kamran Akmal b Abdur Rehman 25 24 20 2 1 125.00
7.2 58.1 mph, Stumped! Haddin went dancing down the track but the ball curved past him. It dipped rapidly on the advancing Haddin, gripped the surface and broke away to Kamran who does the rest. Third wicket down and Australia are wobbling here in St Lucia. 58/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* st †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 17 19 19 2 0 89.47
8.2 66.2 mph, The Pakistan captain knocks out his counterpart. Stumped! What a strike. Clarke went down the track for the big hit but met thin air: Afridi hurled it quicker, dragged back the length, kept it flatter and Clarke tried to swipe it across the line but missed. Very good work from Kamran. The bails were off in a flash. 62/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c & b Abdur Rehman 13 16 9 0 1 144.44
12.3 66.3 mph, Another twist. Another wicket. Pakistan keep the heat on. This one was flighted on the leg and middle and Hussey thought .. I will push it to midwicket and get a single and give the strike to White. Mistake. The ball was slower in pace, it grips and straightens and perhaps stops a touch on Hussey who gets a leading edge back to the bowler. Gone! Michael Hussey walks in. 105/5
View dismissal CL White c Mohammad Hafeez b Mohammad Amir 43 31 31 0 5 138.70
16.3 88.1 mph, Is this the moment of the chase? And would you believe it, it was a full toss that did the trick for Pakistan. A full toss on the off stump line. White's eyes opens up and he tries to smash it through the line to long-off. Perhaps that was the mistake. He couldn't find enough power behind it and couldn't clear long-off. But what an innings this has been from White. Great to watch. Superb under pressure. But he is gone now. 139/6
MEK Hussey not out 60 38 24 3 6 250.00
View dismissal SPD Smith st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 5 2 4 1 0 125.00
17.1 57.1 mph, Ajmal can be such a difficult bowler to get away in these circumstances. Those tantalizing doosras. It landed on the middle stump line, Smith was down the track and actually tried to loft it over the off-side which perhaps indicates that he thought it might be the doosra. But no wood on leather. The ball goes past the flashing blade and to Kamran Akmal who very calmly takes off the bails. Ajmal celebrates. What a lovely delivery 144/7
