1.5

Junaid Khan to Clarke, 1 wide, drifts down the leg side and wide called

1.5

Junaid Khan to Clarke, no run, gets beside the line and he pushes it to the off side

1.6

Junaid Khan to Clarke, 1 wide, was that really a wide down the leg side? Thought I heard a sound, bat hitting pad probably as he tried to flick it

1.6

Junaid Khan to Clarke, no run, full and wide outside off and he drives towards mid-off

Australia 10/1   MJ Clarke 0* (2b)

2.2

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, no run, fuller delivery and Clarke gets in front of the stumps and defends with soft hands

2.3

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, 1 no ball, he has overstepped again, left alone, two front foot no-balls already from a Pakistan left-armer - Wasim Akram-esque

2.3

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, no run, fails to out away the free hit, he makes room and forces it down to mid-on

2.4

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, FOUR, this was too full and straight on the pads, Clarke gets off the mark with a stylish flick wide of midwicket and mid-on

2.5

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, no run, thats more the line Tanvir should be bowling, this left Clarke just over the off stump, cramped him up for room

2.6

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, 1 wide, struggling with the extras here, this was outside the off stump and he safely left it alone, too wide

2.6

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, 1 run, drifts on the body and he clips it to square leg

Australia 18/1   MJ Clarke 5* (8b 1x4)

3.1

Junaid Khan to Clarke, no run, fractionally short of a length outside off and he leaves it alone

3.2

Junaid Khan to Clarke, no run, beats him! This was angled across Clarke who was sucked in to the off drive, fuller delivery, nearly took the edge

3.3

Junaid Khan to Clarke, 1 wide, yet another wide, down the leg side this time, both seamers struggling a bit

3.3

Junaid Khan to Clarke, FOUR, that was spanked past the covers, half volley wide outside the off stump and Clarke ensured he was well across to meet the pitch of the ball, mid-off dived in vain

3.4

Junaid Khan to Clarke, no run, appeal for an lbw and he's been given not out, Misbah is not reviewing it and wisely so, it landed on the off stump and didn't move away, Clarke was forward and he was trapped on the front pad, that looked like clearing the stumps
