Pakistan v Australia T20I Series - 1st T20I

Australia v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 7 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

2.5

Umar Gul to Watson, OUT, and Umar Gul is back and roaring for Pakistan in his first over, serving up ones that swing in and swing away, this one was angled in and fuller than the previous ones, swung in a tad as well, caught Watson on the pad again, and looks to be alright, have to wait for replays, hit in front of middle, below the knee rolls, most umpires will give them

SR Watson lbw b Umar Gul 8 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Australia 12/1   DA Warner 3* (6b)   Umar Gul 0.5-0-1-1

3.2

Sohail Tanvir to MEK Hussey, OUT, and one more, Tanvir slows it up, curls it away appreciably again, fullish length has Hussey reaching out to that widish line, and extra cover accepts the dolly gleefully, Hussey was really feeling for that one way from the body, he was walking outside with momentum as he pushed

MEK Hussey c Shoaib Malik b Sohail Tanvir 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 13/2   DA Warner 3* (6b)   Sohail Tanvir 1.2-0-2-1

8.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Warner, OUT, soft dismissal for Warner, leading edge pops up tamely to the bowler, closing the face a bit to try and work the fullish ball to leg, it straightens, Warner trying to check the push in the end, in vain, and Hafeez consumes one more left-hander

DA Warner c & b Mohammad Hafeez 22 (40m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 88.00

Australia 46/3   GJ Bailey 12* (12b)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.3-0-18-1

9.3

Raza Hasan to DJ Hussey, OUT, maiden international wicket for Raza Hasan, Hussey holing out to long on as he did in the third ODI, trying to clear the man, takes a step out and lofts it hard, fielder was in from the boundary and took it above his head

DJ Hussey c Saeed Ajmal b Raza Hasan 3 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 51/4   GJ Bailey 14* (14b)   Raza Hasan 1.3-0-5-1

10.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Bailey, OUT, hello, they continue to fall, and Pakistan are catching them all, Bailey goes down for the slog-sweep to a full delivery, and finds deep square leg, who leaps and takes it high, and safely

GJ Bailey c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 14 (32m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

Australia 52/5   CL White 1* (1b)   Mohammad Hafeez 3.3-0-22-2

15.3

Raza Hasan to Wade, OUT, slog-sweep, from outside off, sails high in the air, and sails down to deep midwicket

MS Wade c Imran Nazir b Raza Hasan 6 (20m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Australia 72/6   CL White 12* (18b)   Raza Hasan 3.3-0-13-2

17.1

Saeed Ajmal to Maxwell, OUT, Maxwell falls too, now, he had looked very comfortable against Ajmal in the third ODI, has to go for it now, slog-sweeps hard, but only hits it high in the air to deep square leg

GJ Maxwell c Nasir Jamshed b Saeed Ajmal 4 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 81/7   CL White 15* (21b)   Saeed Ajmal 3.1-0-10-1

17.2

Saeed Ajmal to White, OUT, this is a demolition really now, skiddy offspinner from round the stumps, White playing from the crease, it hurries on from middle, brushes pad and strikes the stumps

CL White b Saeed Ajmal 15 (34m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

Australia 81/8   PJ Cummins 0* (0b)   Saeed Ajmal 3.2-0-10-2

19.1

Sohail Tanvir to Cummins, OUT, wide ball back of a length from round the stumps, swung straight to long on

PJ Cummins c Umar Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 1 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 88/9   XJ Doherty 5* (7b)   Sohail Tanvir 2.1-0-12-2

19.3

Sohail Tanvir to Hilfenhaus, OUT, sharp, sharp take from Kamran, give the man some credit for this, I say, Tanvir spearing it in full from wide of the crease, and round the stumps, Kamran is moving down the leg side alright, but there is a huge deflection off a thick inside edge, the ball is dying at Kamran's left foot, but he gets the gloves down in time, and pouches it as he tumbles down

BW Hilfenhaus c †Kamran Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 89/10   XJ Doherty 6* (8b)   Sohail Tanvir 2.3-0-13-3
