View dismissal Salman Butt c Symonds b Hauritz 57 112 6 0 50.89
33.3 Hauritz takes three, dipped into him and appeared to stop on him a little, chips it, with hardly any conviction, straight to Symonds who dives forward at cover 122/5
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad run out (Laughlin/†Haddin) 4 7 1 0 57.14
2.5 from Bracken, run out, utter confusion, both the batsmen have stood their ground after ending up at the same end. Turned to square leg and Shehzad immediately set off, Butt also responded but turned back after getting halfway down the pitch, he crossed Shehzad who kept running. An accurate throw to the striker's end, and Haddin clips the bails. 5/1
View dismissal Younis Khan* c †Haddin b Laughlin 28 34 5 0 82.35
16.1 he strikes immediately! A tame dismissal really, short and wide, goes for the cut, swings away as he plays the shot, takes the outside edge and Haddin makes no mistake 58/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Haddin b Hauritz 7 12 1 0 58.33
19.5 well caught by Haddin, bowled it a touch flat outside off, Malik charged down the pitch and had a massive swing at it, got the inside edge as it spun in, hit the boot and lobbed up in front of Haddin who dived to pluck it inches from the ground, it's been referred to the third umpire who rightly gives it OUT after taking ages to come up with a decision, though it looked pretty straightforward. It didn't flash on the screen, the buttons don't seem to be working, but the message is out to the players in the middle 71/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c Hussey b Hauritz 12 22 1 0 54.54
27.3 Misbah goes for the reverse-sweep and finds David Husey at short third, quicker on outside off and he tries to help it on its way, went really quickly towards Hussey to dived full length to his right to pluck a sharp one, stayed alert throughout 103/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Haddin b Hopes 41 40 5 1 102.50
42.3 edged and Haddin flings himself to his right to snap that out of thin air, superb catch! Fraction full on the off, makes room while simultaneously stepping out, tries to launch it over the in-field on the off side, gets a thick edge and the keeper pulls off a beauty. Big blow that! 176/7
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Hussey b Hopes 19 22 2 0 86.36
40.1 gone! Bowled on a length on middle, walks across and chips it straight to David Hussey at midwicket, mistimed there, had tried to clear him, six down. 161/6
View dismissal Umar Gul c Hauritz b Symonds 10 13 1 0 76.92
45.4 flighted outside off, bent down, got down on one knee to sweep that over square leg, got the top edge and Hauritz ran well to his left from deep square leg, timed his dive well, and made amends for that drop earlier 206/8
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar c Clarke b Symonds 25 14 4 1 178.57
45.5 superb catch by Clarke! Short on the off, gets back and punches it hard, almost clears cover but Clarke leaps and plucks it with his left hand out of thin air to send Shoaib back 206/9
Iftikhar Anjum not out 1 1 0 0 100.00
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal run out (Clarke/Bracken) 0 2 0 0 0.00
46.2 from Bracken, run out, tapped to point, too much hesitation, Iftikhar calls for a single and decides against it midway through the run, Clarke returns it to Bracken who takes off the bails to find Ajmal well short 207/10
