MCC Spirit of Cricket T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Australia v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 11 runs

0.4

DJ Hussey to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, done it! David Hussey strikes! Not the most memorable shot you'll ever see, a massive heave-ho across the line and it crashes into the pads bang in front

Shahzaib Hasan lbw b DJ Hussey 0 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 0/1   Salman Butt 0* (0b)   DJ Hussey 0.4-0-0-1

6.6

O'Keefe to Salman Butt, OUT, gone this time! Silence in Birmingham! Butt tried to sweep firmly, but it got a top edge and looped towards White at short fine leg, who slid forward and held a good catch

Salman Butt c White b O'Keefe 31 (29m 21b 6x4 0x6) SR: 147.61

Pakistan 61/2   Kamran Akmal 22* (17b 4x4)   SNJ O'Keefe 1-0-11-1

9.4

Johnson to Kamran Akmal, OUT, gone this time! Banged in short, Akmal tried to wheel an enormous pull shot away but got it very high on the bat, and it looped over midwicket where Clarke ran back to pull off an excellent catch

Kamran Akmal c Clarke b Johnson 33 (37m 25b 4x4 1x6) SR: 132.00

Pakistan 78/3   Shoaib Malik 5* (8b)   MG Johnson 1.4-0-22-1

13.1

Nannes to Shoaib Malik, OUT, he gets a wicket straight away! Nannes sent one down just short of a length at decent pace, Malik hops back to pull but the ball just rushes on to him and he ends up lapping it ever so tamely to mid-on. Really soft dismissal there, he won't be pleased... but the crowd are, because it brings Boom Boom to the crease!

Shoaib Malik c O'Keefe b Nannes 12 (22m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Pakistan 100/4   Umar Akmal 14* (13b 2x4)   DP Nannes 2.1-0-16-1

16.3

Nannes to Umar Akmal, OUT, Umar falls! He hadn't been quite so fluent today, gone for 25 from 21. He had 50 by the time he had faced 21 balls yesterday! Nannes flings one down short and from a wide angle, Umar goes to pull but top-edges straight up in the air. The fielders converge but Nannes calls for it and takes it. The scorecard will read caught-and-bowled but it was quite a catch, went miles in the air.

Umar Akmal c & b Nannes 25 (28m 21b 4x4 0x6) SR: 119.04

Pakistan 130/5   Shahid Afridi 18* (12b 2x4 1x6)   DP Nannes 3.3-0-26-2

16.4

Nannes to Shahid Afridi, OUT, two in two! Nannes on a hat-trick! Afridi looks to run the ball down to third man but it just bounced a little more than he expected, running off the face/top-edge and through to Paine. Big, big wicket and Australia are right back in this.

Shahid Afridi c †Paine b Nannes 18 (18m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 138.46

Pakistan 130/6   Abdul Razzaq 0* (0b)   DP Nannes 3.4-0-26-3

17.6

DJ Hussey to Mohammad Amir, 1 no ball, OUT, drama! What's happened here? Hussey comes round the wicket and bowls one full on off stump. Aamer cracks the ball back to him, and the umpire calls no-ball as he's over-stepped ... but Hussey collects the ball in his follow-through and breaks the stumps at the non-strikers end, where Razzaq had backed up too far! So, it'll be a Free hit, but Australia have a very important wicket!

Abdul Razzaq run out 3 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 140/7   Mohammad Amir 6* (5b 1x4)   DJ Hussey 2.5-1-10-1

18.1

O'Keefe to Umar Gul, OUT, But that will! Well, it's just a replay of the last ball, except this time Gul swung across the line of a legitimate delivery and is bowled! A second wicket for O'Keefe on debut

Umar Gul b O'Keefe 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 146/8   Mohammad Amir 12* (6b 1x4 1x6)   SNJ O'Keefe 3.1-0-22-2

18.5

O'Keefe to Shoaib Akhtar, OUT, third wicket for O'Keefe! Well, Aamer was nailing them and Shoaib wanted to join in, charging down the track and swinging massively to leg ... except he misses the ball completely and it clatters into the leg stump. Well-bowled by O'Keefe, he has turned the ball an inch today but has been nice and accurate

Shoaib Akhtar b O'Keefe 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 154/9   Mohammad Amir 19* (8b 1x4 2x6)   SNJ O'Keefe 3.5-0-29-3
