Junaid Khan to Wade, OUT, well Umar Akmal needn't beat himself up for that drop! Soon after being let off, Wade chases a full and wide delivery outside off and drags it to his stumps, not exactly a wicket-taking delivery though, the shot didn't come off right

MS Wade b Junaid Khan 7 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Australia 8/1   DA Warner 0* (3b)   Junaid Khan 0.4-0-4-1

Saeed Ajmal to Warner, OUT, and the long, long vigil comes to an end! Pitching on the leg and middle, hitting on the pad and struck low on the pads. Ticks all the boxes required to dole out an LBW decision. Ajmal is ecstatic. Warner is asked,by his captain, if he wants to use the referral, but he refuses it

DA Warner lbw b Saeed Ajmal 24 (89m 68b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

Australia 74/2   MJ Clarke 34* (45b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 2.5-0-5-1

Mohammad Hafeez to Clarke, OUT, Clarke's been given lbw and he is reviewing it, lands quite wide outside off and spins back in sharply and hits the top flap of his pad, umpire Llong gave him out and Clarke asked for it to be reviewed because it was a question of the height, replays showed the ball just clipping the top of leg stump, Llong's decision stands

MJ Clarke lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 37 (92m 54b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.51

Australia 86/3   MEK Hussey 9* (10b 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 6-0-16-1

Saeed Ajmal to DJ Hussey, OUT, Pakistan have struck with two lbws in quick succession! Hussey looked a bit surprised, he was a long way across his stumps and hence exposed the leg stump and a part of middle, the ball spun back in and hit him low on the pads, umpire Ahsan Raza was convinced, Australia have already used up their review

DJ Hussey lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 87/4   MEK Hussey 10* (11b 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 4.3-0-14-2

Abdur Rehman to Bailey, OUT, soft dismissal! Rehman tossed it up on middle and off and Bailey was looking to chip it to the on side but ended up spooning it back to the bowler

GJ Bailey c & b Abdur Rehman 39 (62m 46b 3x4 0x6) SR: 84.78
