31.5

Hauritz to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, his patience was tested and finally, when offered some flight, failed to resist the temptation. Landed full on the off stump, went for a mighty slog-sweep over midwicket, it spun in, took the top-edge and stuck safely in the palms of Ferguson at long-on

Bollinger to Shoaib Malik, OUT, looked plumb, nipped back in from the off, he got forward to defend but was struck just in line, didn't get across enough and played with bat really close to pad

Shoaib Malik lbw b Bollinger 27 (33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Pakistan 140/5   Shahid Afridi 20* (13b 3x4)   DE Bollinger 3.2-0-12-2

Pakistan 145/6   Shahid Afridi 24* (16b 3x4)   SR Clark 6.4-0-24-1

44.1

Bollinger to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone! Big wicket! Short on middle, gets more bounce and is pacy, bowled at 135 kmph, goes for a mighty pull, gets the top edge as it comes on a little too quickly and North takes an easy catch at mid-on

Shahid Afridi c North b Bollinger 40 (40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 174/7   Yasir Arafat 12* (21b 1x6)   DE Bollinger 5.1-0-22-3

47.5

Bracken to Sohail Tanvir, OUT, gone this time! Identical shot, gets the top edge again but is unfortunate it's not Watson under it again, got it much straighter and Hauritz at mid-on shows his team-mate how it's done

Sohail Tanvir c Hauritz b Bracken 9 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Pakistan 190/8   Yasir Arafat 18* (30b 1x4 1x6)   NW Bracken 9.5-1-27-2

Pakistan 197/10   Yasir Arafat 23* (32b 2x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 7.4-0-35-5
