    4.6 caught at long leg! The bouncer rises quickly on Guptill, who pulls but top edges it. The ball swirls high in the air towards long leg, where Wahab Riaz runs forward and to his left to judge the catch superbly. It was a lot like the chance Rahat Ali famously dropped off Wahab himself in the World Cup quarterfinal, giving Shane Watson a reprieve. 23/1
    5.2 An appeal for caught behind is turned down and Pakistan are going to review the not out decision. Amir sent down another sharp bouncer that rose rapidly on Latham, who was trying to hook from his crease. There is no conclusive deviation, though it looks like one. Hot Spot doesn't show anything as the ball whizzes past the glove. There is a blip on the real time snicko though. Pakistan were super confident of their appeal. The third umpire decides that the spike on real time snicko is enough to overturn the decision. Latham has to go. 25/2
    15.3 bowled him! Williamson has not looked in touch today and he's dragged this one on. The ball pitched on a good length outside off and shaped in just a touch. Williamson drove at it with hard hands and the ball crashed into leg stump off the edge. 70/3
    44.2 dragged it on! After a series of short balls, Ali bowls a full one outside off, and Nicholls attempts the booming drive through the off side. He gets an inside edge on to his stumps. Nicholls walks off to applause from the full house at Basin Reserve. He's made his best score today, and in really tough circumstances. 203/8
    15.5 what a ball that is! Anwar Ali has bowled a ripper. It pitched on a fuller length outside off, drawing Elliott into the front foot drive through the off side. The ball moved in late and quite sharply, beating the inside edge this time and hitting the stumps full on 70/4
    20.4 caught behind! Amir has his second wicket! He pitched short of a length and the ball bounced a bit more than usual on a tight line outside off. Anderson stayed back and pushed at the delivery with hard hands, trying to punch through cover. The edge flew through comfortably to Sarfraz 93/5
    22.1 Ronchi's gone! Amir's got his third! Ronchi stays in his crease and wafts at a good length ball that slants across the right-hander from over the wicket. Sarfraz snaffles another edge 99/6
    38.4 caught on the pull! Irfan's short of a length ball rises quickly and cramps the left-hander for room from over the wicket. Santner's pull results in a top edge and Sarfraz runs to his right to catch it around short fine leg. 178/7

    8.4 he's slogged this straight up in the air and Henry settles under it at mid-on. Azhar planted his foot forward and swung across the line at an offcutter. The bat turned in his hand as he made contact and he ended up slicing it in the air. Azhar's match is over, he's not had a good day after the first hour and a half. 33/1
    10.6 he's holed out to mid off this time! Elliott has a second wicket and he would not have been bowling so early if not for the injury to McClenaghan. Elliott pitched the ball on a good length outside off and got it to seam away from the right-hander, Shehzad got his foot forward and drove away from his body, the ball made contact with the bottom of his bat and went flat and straight to Williamson 37/2
    26.3 KW breaks the stand with his part-time spin. Hafeez can't beat the fielder now, after having struck a six earlier. This was pushed through flatter and quicker as Hafeez danced out. He does not connect well with a lofted hit. Drags it to Henry at long-on 118/3
    36.4 Azam perishes to the short ball too. He gives it away He sets up for a pull from just outside off but only miscues it down the throat of Nicholls at deep midwicket 168/5
    32.1 Elliott strikes again! He tests Maqsood with a bouncer. The batsman fails, taking his eyes off the hook. Top edged to long leg 142/4
    43.2 Sarfraz holes out to Corey Anderson, running to his left from deep midwicket. Well-judged take. Full and on middle, Sarfraz swings but does not get enough power behind that hit. Pakistan seven down and sinking 205/7
    37.3 Wasim has been snaffled down the leg side. Given out by umpire Llong. The bowler was so confident that he gestured for a review, just before the finger went up. Drifting down leg, innocuous ball. There is a tiny nick behind to Ronchi 170/6
    43.4 fractionally short and outside off, Anwar Ali slogs hard and finds Latham at midwicket. The fielder did not even have to budge. Two wickets in three balls for Boult 206/8

    45.3 knocked'em over. Boult has a big smile. The middle stump is knocked back. Boult hunts for a yorker and bowls a full toss, which is good enough. Amir makes room and drags it back onto the stumps. The zing bails go flying 210/9
    45.6 Boult wraps up a 70-run win. Pinpoint yorker, this (reverse-)swings away as well, beating the poke of Irfan to crash into the off stump 210/10
