24 April 2009 - day/night match (50-over match)

Bracken to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, 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.

Ahmed Shehzad run out 4 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pakistan 5/1   Salman Butt 1* (10b)   NW Bracken 1.5-1-1-0

Laughlin to Younis Khan, OUT, 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

Younis Khan c †Haddin b Laughlin 28 (34b 5x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

Pakistan 58/2   Salman Butt 24* (57b 4x4)   B Laughlin 0.1-0-0-1

Hauritz to Shoaib Malik, OUT, 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

Shoaib Malik c †Haddin b Hauritz 7 (12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

Pakistan 71/3   Salman Butt 30* (67b 4x4)   NM Hauritz 2.5-0-9-1

Hauritz to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, 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

Misbah-ul-Haq c Hussey b Hauritz 12 (22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Pakistan 103/4   Salman Butt 50* (91b 6x4)   NM Hauritz 6.3-1-24-2

Hauritz to Salman Butt, OUT, 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

Salman Butt c Symonds b Hauritz 57 (112b 6x4 0x6) SR: 50.89

Pakistan 122/5   Shahid Afridi 12* (15b 1x4)   NM Hauritz 9.3-1-36-3

Hopes to Kamran Akmal, OUT, 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.

Kamran Akmal c Hussey b Hopes 19 (22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 86.36

Pakistan 161/6   Shahid Afridi 31* (33b 3x4 1x6)   JR Hopes 4.1-0-22-1

Hopes to Shahid Afridi, OUT, 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!

Shahid Afridi c †Haddin b Hopes 41 (40b 5x4 1x6) SR: 102.50

Pakistan 176/7   Umar Gul 5* (7b 1x4)   JR Hopes 5.3-0-28-2

Symonds to Umar Gul, OUT, 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

Umar Gul c Hauritz b Symonds 10 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

Pakistan 206/8   Shoaib Akhtar 25* (13b 4x4 1x6)   A Symonds 1.4-0-12-1

Symonds to Shoaib Akhtar, OUT, 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

Shoaib Akhtar c Clarke b Symonds 25 (14b 4x4 1x6) SR: 178.57

Pakistan 206/9   Iftikhar Anjum 0* (0b)   A Symonds 1.5-0-12-2

Bracken to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, 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

Saeed Ajmal run out 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 207/10   Iftikhar Anjum 1* (1b)   NW Bracken 8.2-1-24-0
