38.5

Abdul Razzaq to Krejza, no run, attempted yorker, good thinking, but drifting a touch down the leg-side. Steered to midwicket

38.6

Abdul Razzaq to Krejza, no run, clear signs of reverse swing as Razzaq is really tearing in now. Defended solidly enough on off stump

Australia 147/7   JJ Krejza 0* (2b)
39.2

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, poked to cover from deep in the crease

39.3

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, defended back down the track

39.4

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, that beat everything, Akmal included. Missed stumping? Perhaps. Akmal's day had been too good to last

39.5

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run

39.6

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, blocked out to point, and the Aussie struggle continues

Australia 148/7   JJ Krejza 0* (7b)
40.5

Abdul Razzaq to Krejza, no run, Krejza stabs down on a straight ball

40.6

Abdul Razzaq to Krejza, no run, Razzaq doing nothing more tricky than holding a line outside off stump. Where as this against Ross Taylor? Anyway, Krejza defends

Australia 149/7   JJ Krejza 0* (9b)
41.2

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, 1 run, pushed away securely for a single

41.6

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, 1 run, toe-ended cut shot runs out to deep cover.

Australia 155/7   JJ Krejza 2* (11b)
42.1

Umar Gul to Krejza, 1 run, already some reverse swing, dipping into the batsman at 146kph. Some horrid stick-a-foot-out-and-hope fielding from Afridi gifts a single. He then stretches to take everyone's mind off what happens

42.3

Umar Gul to Krejza, no run, slip in place for Krejza but Gul admonishes himself for shoving down a short and wide one. Krejza is equally annoyed for missing it

42.4

Umar Gul to Krejza, 1 run, this is a better ball, though curiously back of a length again. Krejza drops it to cover to exchange a single with Smith

Australia 158/7   JJ Krejza 4* (14b)
43.2

Shahid Afridi to Krejza, no run, this is held back a touch and pushed into space

43.3

Shahid Afridi to Krejza, 1 run, carefully worked away, much quicker delivery

Australia 165/7   JJ Krejza 5* (16b)
44.1

Umar Gul to Krejza, 2 runs, much too short and much too wide, this is poor stuff from Gul and Australia just building a decent run of play here. Krejza cuts out in front of deep cover for a couple

44.2

Umar Gul to Krejza, no run, better, much better. More intent on this Gul delivery, firing it in fuller and sliding into Smith who couldn't work it away

44.3

Umar Gul to Krejza, OUT, there it is! The Umar Gul inswinging yorker strikes again. Why did he wait so long? Krejza backed away to give himself room to pierce the off side but he missed and the stumps were shattered instead

JJ Krejza b Umar Gul 7 (22m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

Australia 169/8   JJ Krejza 7 (19b)
