    10.3 practice catch for mid-on! Anwar Ali breaks the stand. It was short of length outside off, Finch didn't move much and was maybe it two minds to punch it down the ground or clear mid-on and ended up chipping it to Irfan at mid-on. Finch's poor run on the tour continues 48/1
    21.4 and Lala strikes! That was much slower than the previous ball, and it dropped on Warner, on off stump, and he pushed at it and lobbed the ball straight back to the bowler, at a nice, catchable waist height 102/2
    45.4 bowled again, this time he has to go! Smith charged down with some room and wanted to smash it over the covers but missed it and the ball knocked over the base of off stump 199/7
    22.2 got him! That was a length ball, angling away outside off, and Bailey followed it and sliced it straight to the man at backward point 103/3
    29.4 Afridi gets another. Maxwell goes for the slog-sweep, but he's only managed to pick out Umar Amin, who runs to his left from deep square leg and takes a superb diving catch. Just about managed to hold on even though he landed on his elbows and the ball threatened to pop out 138/4
    35.3 loud appeal and Tanvir gets him! Hughes has reviewed it. The ball swung in after pitching outside off, hit him on the knee roll in front of the off stump and that would have hit the stumps, says the ball-tracking technology. Hughes has to walk back 157/5
    36.5 full on off now, driven down to mid-on, and Haddin is a few feet outside the crease. The fielder - Anwar Ali - was alert to spot that and rocketed a flat throw for a direct hit. It's gone to the third umpire and Haddin is a few inches short. A dismissal made out of nothing, with full credit to the fielder 159/6
    49.1 gets a wicket first ball! Short of length ball was angled in, Faulkner pulled it but this ground is big and the blow was not that powerful, Umar Amin at deep midwicket takes a few steps in to catch it 221/9
    48.5 excellent work from Irfan. He first bowled a slower one on back of length by rolling his fingers over this one, Faulkner could not connect well and the ball went back towards the bowler. Starc was well outside the crease by now, Irfan is on the ground while stopping the ball and turns and gets a direct hit 220/8

    11.1 bowled him! Shehzad made room to cut, but that wasn't short enough, and it went with the angle and crashed into middle and off 56/1
    17.1 sweeps from the stumps again, towards deep midwicket. Starc ran to his left from deep backward square and let rip a flat throw to the keeper as the batsmen looked to take him on and run a second. Sarfraz dives into his crease, but his bat crosses the line a crucial instant after Haddin whips the bails off 80/2
    34.2 angled in from wide of the crease, Shafiq was stuck on the crease, and the break has given Australia a breakthrough! Shafiq checks with Amin whether he should review, and Amin says no, and you can see why he said that. It struck him below the knee-roll, on the crease, in front of middle stump. 160/5
    17.5 that's another wicket, but the umpires are going up! Fawad swept it fine down the leg side, Smith was at first slip and he ran like a hare towards leg slip in anticipation just after the ball was delivered and takes what looks like an easy catch at leg slip. Great anticipation after he saw Fawad get into position to sweep. The umpires have ruled him out, Fawad waited for a long time at the boundary and eventually walked out 80/3
    32.4 pulled again, the short ball gets Maqsood and Warner takes it easily running in from deep midwicket. Richardson bowled the scrambled seam outside off and Maqsood didn't get the distance on that one 154/4
    44.4 bowled him! That was full, and it came in late and sneaked through the gap between Amin's bat and pad and crashed into off stump. He was looking to drive that through cover 204/7
    37.4 short outside off, and that's a familiar sight to anyone who knows Afridi. The attempted pull, the top edge, the sky-high catch to mid-on running to his left. That was the effort ball from Richardson, and well directed too, rising above Afridi's right shoulder 174/6
    46.1 slants this across outside off, not quite up there to drive, and he goes after it and slices it at a catchable height to Maxwell at backward point 208/8
    49.2 oh, my. What have you done, Sohail Tanvir? Maxwell fired that in flat and full, and Tanvir swung across the line again. Tanvir missed, Maxwell hit 230/9

    49.6 Maxwell has won it for Australia! That was on the stumps and Irfan swung hard at it. The ball took his outside edge and looped in the air and the man at cover took a simple catch 230/10
