Pattinson to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, soft dismissal! He hits it straight to short extra cover, it was on a good length outside off and Hafeez stabbed at it, didn't go through with the shot and it lobbed straight to David Hussey, Hafeez's ordinary one-day form continues

Mohammad Hafeez c DJ Hussey b Pattinson 4 (26m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 20/1   Nasir Jamshed 11* (16b 1x4)   JL Pattinson 2.4-0-6-1

Pattinson to Azhar Ali, OUT, and another soft dismissal! Chipped to mid-on, it was shaping in full on the pads and Azhar was looking to chip it over the on side, the trouble was the bat turned as he made contact and hence mistimed it, Johnson jogged to his right and caught it on the fall

Azhar Ali c Johnson b Pattinson 5 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Pakistan 28/2   Nasir Jamshed 14* (19b 1x4)   JL Pattinson 3.1-0-6-2

Starc to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, good comeback by Starc and better reflexes from Wade! Starc hit the deck harder this time to vary his length, there was extra bounce which Jamshed wasn't ready for, he tried to fend it off outside the off stump but the ball took the top half of the bat and Wade jumped to his left and took it

Nasir Jamshed c †Wade b Starc 23 (50m 30b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.66

Pakistan 40/3   Asad Shafiq 3* (11b)   MA Starc 4.5-1-25-1

Christian to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Christian breaks the stand and Misbah perishes trying to be aggressive, Christian took a lot of pace off the ball with his offcutter, the keeper was up to the stumps to stifle the batsman, Misbah tried to hoick it over the on side and got a thick inside edge to the stumps

Misbah-ul-Haq b Christian 26 (65m 48b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.16

Pakistan 99/4   Asad Shafiq 36* (52b 1x4 1x6)   DT Christian 4.4-0-16-1

Starc to Asad Shafiq, OUT, and the start of the Powerplay brings a wicket! Shafiq was trying to repeat the shot from the previous ball, made a lot of room to spank it through cover, Starc fired it full and on the stumps from round the wicket, Shafiq made no contact and lost his stumps

Asad Shafiq b Starc 56 (124m 77b 2x4 2x6) SR: 72.72

Pakistan 160/5   Umar Akmal 40* (40b 1x4 2x6)   MA Starc 6.3-1-28-2

Starc to Kamran Akmal, OUT, very soft dismissal in the end! Starc pitched it on a good length from round the wicket, Kamran was trying to tuck it over the on side but he ended up playing it too early and tamely chipped it to Clarke at midwicket

Kamran Akmal c Clarke b Starc 4 (18m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Pakistan 174/6   Umar Akmal 47* (50b 2x4 2x6)   MA Starc 8.3-2-37-3

Starc to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone first ball! Clever move to bring in a slip because he has hit it straight there! Starc went back to over the wicket for Afridi, pitched it up on the off stump and drew him forward to drive, thick outside edge to Clarke, great captaincy and Starc has four wickets

Shahid Afridi c Clarke b Starc 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 175/7   Umar Akmal 48* (51b 2x4 2x6)   MA Starc 8.5-2-38-4

Starc to Umar Akmal, OUT, Starc picks up five! Starc continues his round the wicket line to Umar Akmal, he sprays it full and wide and invites the lofted shot, Umar made room and tried to clear the infield but didn't get the elevation, straight to Bailey at cover

Umar Akmal c Bailey b Starc 52 (82m 55b 2x4 2x6) SR: 94.54

Pakistan 180/8   Sohail Tanvir 1* (4b)   MA Starc 9.1-2-38-5

Johnson to Sohail Tanvir, OUT, the decline continues! Poor shot by Tanvir, not sure what he was attempting there, made room and tried to scoop it over mid-on, miscued it and Hussey ran across to his right and took a simple catch

Sohail Tanvir c DJ Hussey b Johnson 1 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Pakistan 184/9   Saeed Ajmal 4* (5b 1x4)   MG Johnson 7.2-0-39-1

Pattinson to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, well we didn't need the extra time after all! Pattinson fires it full and straight on the leg stump, Ajmal couldn't resist the big shot but played too early, the ball went straight through and pushed back the leg stump

Saeed Ajmal b Pattinson 8 (21m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pakistan 198/10   Aizaz Cheema 2* (8b)   JL Pattinson 9.1-0-19-3
