    17.2 Khawaja nicks behind, Rizwan dives across to his left and grasps the edge. 44 boundary-less balls, including the front-foot no-ball, and Pakistan find the breakthrough. Full and slanting away from off stump, Khawaja's front foot is nowhere close to the pitch of this delivery. He simply throws his bat at a big drive and edges it behind. Hasan Ali celebrates the wicket with a fist pump 92/1
    35.3 ....so of course he goes now. Full and wide outside off, he's backed away too much and falls over as he reaches for this. Gets a thin nick that goes low to Riwan's left and he's pouched it 212/2
    35.5 he's got him! Good length outside off, tails in, he walks across and is trapped in front. Smith reviews. No bat involved. That's out. Hits him in line and it would've crashed into middle and leg. What an over from Hasan Ali. 213/3
    46.3 Phew, Pakistan finally hang onto a catch (yes, you read that right). Head pre-meditates, ventures a long way outside leg. He is chased by a short ball, which gets big. Attempts a hook and skies a top-edge to Malik at deep square leg 313/4
    49.6 Sharjeel hangs onto a dolly, and Hasan does the sajdah, celebrating his maiden five-for. His figures of 5 for 52 stand out amid this carnage. Very full and outside off, Maxwell flits around in the crease and shovel-whips it in the air. Sharjeel takes it at deep square leg. He did not even have to budge 353/6
    49.1 Skied to long-on. Chest-high catch, Imad Wasim clings onto it.... just It nearly popped out at the last moment. Pitched up and outside off, right in the hitting slot. Wade lofts and miscues it to Imad. Fourth wicket for Hasan 339/5

    1.6 Smith ventures to his left from second slip and gobbles the edge up in front of first slip. Nice and full, swings away outside off, Azhar follows the curve of the ball. Drives away from the body and nicks behind 15/1
    16.5 Sharjeel can't clear the long boundary, Warner snaps it up at the edge of the deep midwicket boundary. He lets out a big roar. Tossed up outside off, not much turn. Sharjeel goes down on one knee. Toe-ends a slog sweep. First wicket for Zampa, and that's a major blow for Pakistan 119/3
    13.6 Azam holes out to long-on running to his right. Good catch from Hazlewood. That's the major difference between the two teams. Good length and outside off, Azam drops down to one knee, attempts a slog-sweep, and skies it to Hazlewood. The bat twisted in Azam's hands, sucking all the power from the shot 88/2
    29.6 floated in on a good length outside off, Hafeez gets slow and goes for the slog sweep, it climbs on him slightly and takes the top of the bat and carries easily to deep midwicket on that long boundary 183/4
    35.5 Warner simply loves the SCG. He runs in from deep midwicket, attacks the ball, and pockets a low catch. Excellent judgement. He then turns back towards the crowd, lets out a roar, and thumps his chest. He enjoyed that catch. That's how you do it, Pakistan. Pushed through outside off, Malik drops to one knee and skies a slog-sweep. Only toe-ended it in the air... 215/5
    36.4 Pat Cummins calmly settles under the skier. Two wickets in two overs right after drinks. Starc digs it short and outside off. Slower bouncer. Umar has a limp pull at it, plays way early, and top-edges it into the hands of Cummins at short fine leg. Umar never really got going 218/6
    40.3 quick skidder from Zampa, fizzes in with the arm, beats the inside edge as Rizwan plays across the line and is pinged on the front pad above the knee-roll. The finger goes up. Nothing on Hotspot. Nothing on RTS. The tracker shows it would carry onto hit the top of leg stump. Umpire Gaffney's on-field call is vindicated. Rizwan's review in vain 245/7
    43.4 Imad shuffles a long way across the off stump, Hazlewood follows him with a very full ball. Imad aims to scoop it away over the keeper. Does not get enough bat on ball and ends up tickling a catch behind to Wade 267/9
    41.5 back of a length and outside off, 141ks, Amir, having backed away, slashes again, this time edging it behind to Wade at a comfortable height 252/8

    43.5 Australia beat Pakistan by 86 runs and sew up the series. Junaid bags a first-ball duck. Full and swerves in slightly, breaches Junaid's defences and hits the off stump 267/10
