Junaid Khan to Wade, FOUR, outside edge this time, full and wide outside the off stump, reaches out and the edge drops well short of second slip and races to third man

Australia 8/0   MS Wade 7* (6b 1x4)   Junaid Khan 0.2-0-4-0

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

Australia 16/1   MJ Clarke 4* (6b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 1.4-0-9-0

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

Australia 23/1   MJ Clarke 9* (11b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 1.3-0-11-1

Sohail Tanvir to Clarke, FOUR, it was a fraction too short, Clarke read the length well and swiveled and clubbed it just over midwicket's reach, safe enough

Australia 36/1   MJ Clarke 20* (21b 3x4)   Sohail Tanvir 4-0-18-0

Junaid Khan to Warner, FOUR, bit too straight, Warner shuffles and clips it in front of his hips and exploited the big gap on the leg side, Ajmal gives chase but can't cut it off, this outfield is much quicker than Sharjah's

Australia 41/1   DA Warner 5* (22b 1x4)   Junaid Khan 3.3-0-19-1

Abdur Rehman to Warner, FOUR, short ball outside the off stump. Warner rocks back and smashes one past covers for a boundary

Australia 71/1   DA Warner 23* (61b 2x4)   Abdur Rehman 4.2-0-14-0

Sohail Tanvir to Bailey, FOUR, and now a boundary, this was short and enough width on it for Bailey to stay back and slice it wide of point, third man had no chance

Australia 122/4   GJ Bailey 22* (22b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 5.1-0-28-0

Abdur Rehman to Bailey, FOUR, this was a touch shorter and Bailey wanted to cut but ended up getting an outside edge to third man, no slip and Shafiq gave up the chase

Australia 133/4   GJ Bailey 30* (29b 2x4)   Abdur Rehman 6-0-24-0

Junaid Khan to MEK Hussey, FOUR, he picked the gap in the field well, it was dropped short and Hussey swivels and pulls it high over square leg, didn't hit it too hard, used the pace of the ball

Australia 139/4   MEK Hussey 31* (36b 1x4 1x6)   Junaid Khan 5-0-25-1

Abdur Rehman to Bailey, FOUR, outside edge and no slip! This one keeps a bit low and Bailey gets a thin edge that beats the keeper and short third man

Australia 149/4   GJ Bailey 37* (39b 3x4)   Abdur Rehman 7.3-0-33-0

Sohail Tanvir to Christian, FOUR, the free hit costs Pakistan a boundary! Tanvir bowls a low full toss on the pads and Christian shuffles and clips it wide of short fine leg

Australia 225/7   DT Christian 10* (6b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 8-0-46-0

Junaid Khan to Christian, FOUR, bowls that full and wide outside off and Christian gets across and hammers it to deep cover for a boundary

Australia 231/7   DT Christian 15* (12b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 8.1-0-48-1

Sohail Tanvir to Starc, FOUR, take that! It was dropped short, Starc swivels and clubs it wide of midwicket and the ball races away, beats the sweeper

Australia 244/9   MA Starc 7* (3b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 8.5-0-55-0

Sohail Tanvir to Starc, FOUR, and Australia squeeze in four more! Streaky one though, swings and gets an inside edge that sneaks past the stumps and Ajmal at short fine leg

Australia 248/9   MA Starc 11* (4b 2x4)   Sohail Tanvir 9-0-59-0
