Australia v Pakistan

Australia won by 27 runs

5.4

Sohail Tanvir to Hopes, OUT, run out, Younis scores a direct hit from mid-off, ran to his left as it was pushed wide of him, Hopes set off for a single, stretched while trying to make it back in and replays indicate he was just short, the bails were dislodged when his bat was just short of the edge of the crease, the third umpire took his time and hit the red button

JR Hopes run out 15 (22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

Australia 28/1   BJ Haddin 12* (12b 3x4)   Sohail Tanvir 2.4-0-14-0

6.2

Umar Gul to Watson, OUT, dragged it on, good length on the off, was half-forward, hardly any element of conviction from the batsman, looked to block hard, got the inside edge and the stumps were rattled

SR Watson b Umar Gul 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 28/2   BJ Haddin 12* (14b 3x4)   Umar Gul 3.2-0-14-1

19.1

Shoaib Malik to Haddin, OUT, bowled'im! A conventional offpsinner, landed on the off and spun in, Haddin moves well across to turn it into the leg side, missed and the ball clipped the leg stump, exposed his stumps there and paid the price

BJ Haddin b Shoaib Malik 26 (55b 4x4 0x6) SR: 47.27

Australia 74/3   MJ Clarke 29* (37b 4x4)   Shoaib Malik 1.1-0-3-1

24.6

Shahid Afridi to Symonds, OUT, trapped in front, held its line, landed on a good length on middle, was half-forward while playing at it, was expecting it to turn away but was beaten by the straighter one to be struck in line, big blow that, the spinners have done it again

A Symonds lbw b Shahid Afridi 7 (18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

Australia 91/4   MJ Clarke 39* (54b 6x4)   Shahid Afridi 6-1-18-1

38.6

Shahid Afridi to Clarke, OUT, caught and bowled, stopped on him a little, dropped it short, spun away, stepped out of the crease and pushed at it, lobbed it straight to Afridi who took a dolly, went through with the shot there, didn't try to adjust to the spin, and paid the price

MJ Clarke c & b Shahid Afridi 66 (93b 8x4 0x6) SR: 70.96

Australia 145/5   CJ Ferguson 25* (46b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 8-1-29-2

44.4

Umar Gul to Ferguson, OUT, was in the slot, struck it well, had a nice swing at it but there was fielder there perfectly positioned for that shot, hit towards long-on where Tanvir just had to take a couple of steps back to snap that one

CJ Ferguson c Sohail Tanvir b Umar Gul 41 (68b 4x4 0x6) SR: 60.29

Australia 168/6   DJ Hussey 5* (12b)   Umar Gul 5.4-0-29-2

48.3

Umar Gul to Hussey, OUT, gone! Slower one, bowled short on the off, an offcutter that, Hussey failed to pick it, struggled all the way through, tried to pull it over deep square leg, got the top edge as he was a little early into the shot, easy catch to Arafat

DJ Hussey c Yasir Arafat b Umar Gul 10 (21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.61

Australia 188/7   NM Hauritz 14* (14b 1x6)   Umar Gul 7.3-0-36-3
