7.1

Johnson to Shahid Afridi, OUT, he strikes first ball, Afridi's gone, shortish ball on legstump, Afridi is hurried into playing a pull, the ball lobs towards square leg, Hopes makes plenty of ground to his right from midwicket and latches onto the ball

Shahid Afridi c Hopes b Johnson 15 (32m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Watson to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Watson gets rid of Akmal, who goes for a flamboyant pull but only manages to bottom-edge the ball onto the base of legstump

Pakistan 75/2   Younis Khan 14* (30b 2x4)   SR Watson 4.3-0-14-1

23.4

Hopes to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis holes out to mid-on, he was looking to loft the ball over mid-on, miscues it high in the air, Johnson races back and judges the catch well, positioning himself nicely to pouch the ball, does a rugby-style drop-kick to celebrate

Younis Khan c Johnson b Hopes 18 (70m 49b 2x4 0x6) SR: 36.73

Pakistan 89/3   Shoaib Malik 10* (12b 1x6)   JR Hopes 3.4-0-12-1

31.5

Johnson to Shoaib Malik, OUT, soft dismissal, Malik becomes Johnson's 100th ODI victim, an innocuous delivery, full and outside off, Malik goes for the drive, he can't keep it along the ground, and finds Ponting at short cover

Shoaib Malik c Ponting b Johnson 27 (55m 37b 1x4 1x6) SR: 72.97

Pakistan 123/4   Mohammad Yousuf 15* (24b 1x4)   MG Johnson 5.5-0-27-2

46.2

Lee to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, shuffles, Lee sees him do so and bangs it short on the off, tries to chip it over midwicket but the shot wasn't on, just lobbed it up towards White who took a dolly at the edge of the circle

Mohammad Yousuf c White b Lee 45 (92m 69b 3x4 0x6) SR: 65.21

Pakistan 186/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 32* (42b 3x4)   B Lee 8.2-0-26-1

49.4

Watson to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 wide, OUT, hit wicket, what was he doing there? Given a wide, bowled full outside off, Misbah, trying to leave it alone given the width, trotted back onto his stumps, not strange for Misbah, he's made it a habit to get out in unusual ways

Misbah-ul-Haq hit wicket b Watson 41 (75m 53b 4x4 0x6) SR: 77.35

Pakistan 198/6   Umar Akmal 2* (8b)   SR Watson 7.3-0-25-2
