    3.1 oopsy, he's bowled around his legs. Both openers back in the hut! This is a good length ball angled in at him, Shehzad tries to use it and clip it away through midwicket. But he was jumped too far across outside off and exposes his sticks. Siddle locks on target and nails it 7/2
    0.5 there we go! Searing yorker at 144 kph and its struck full on his toe! The inswing had him in a right tangle, he had to play around his front pad, head falling over awfully. He seemed right in line with all three stumps. Should not have gone for the review, but he has. And by all accounts, he's wasted one. Brutal pace and dangerous swing gets him. Johnson unstoppable 1/1
    52.5 he's struck! Azhar's laziness has sneaked through and he has to depart. Teases him with a fuller ball outside off and gets the uppish drive in reply. Doolan is at short cover and snaffles up a simple catch. Vents his frustration by slamming the bat down on the turf 115/3
    80.2 he's struck again! Johnson has a knack of keeping any game alive. This jagged back in, that movement surprised Younis and the pace was too quick for him, at least judging by how late he brought the bat down from that high backlift. Struck on the top flap of the back pad. The on-field up gave it out, Younis went for a review. Three reds is the reply. Brilliant innings comes to an end off a brilliant ball. Walks off with his bat raised and to generous applause. First Pakistani to hit centuries against all Test-playing nations, by the way 198/4
    112.1 there's the breakthrough Australia gambled for! Misbah eyed a flighted ball on middle and wanted to launch it over long-on again. This time though he hasn't timed it. The bat face closed on impact and limits his power so much that it lands safely in the hands of Mitch Johnson 291/5
    133.3 that's a top edge and O'Keefe has a maiden Test wicket, and Marsh gets his first Test catch as well. Gets a little too much under a good length ball on off stump and gets more height than distance. Square leg runs back and picks up the catch over his shoulder 415/6
    144.4 goes around the wicket and pushes this good length ball with the arm. Goes for a sweep and misses completely, Haddin whips the bails off in a flash and Sarfraz, having stretched too far forward, hasn't pushed his back leg to safety. Hammers his bat onto his pad in disappointment and that means it is tea Goes back to the dressing room who are all standing and gets a hug from Misbah 454/8
    139.5 bests Warne's debut with another wicket! Another big shot is skewed away where it should not have gone. Gets the leading edge, because he was slogging against the turn, simple catch for Rogers. Flight helps out O'Keefe 442/7
    144.3 goes back and taps a good length ball towards third man. Babar's still not happy with that right hand of his 454/7
    144.6 oy, he's slogged a length ball straight down the throat of deep midwicket. This was a good length ball pushed across Rahat from around the wicket. Played a typical tailenders slog and is caught out in the deep 454/9

    37.3 he's played on, he had timed almost nothing this morning on the off side, especially on the cut, he moves across to a short of a length ball that climbs sharply, is in a pretty awkward position as he tries to chop it, it comes in a tad and takes a thick inside edge onto the stumps 128/1
    66.3 but he follows that turner with a ripper, and Warner has no answer, lots of flight, huge turn and bounce, Warner tries to play it off the back foot, but it jags past the outside edge to strike middle, Warner is so disappointed he flings his gloves away as he walks past the boundary rope 207/5
    48.6 Rahat is rather slow in getting to this push at mid on and letting go of the throw, but he's found the stumps direct, and replays show Doolan is just short of his ground, his bat is on the line as the bails come off, he was always struggling for that single and had to run wider to avoid the bowler, Rahat was close by but they still went for the run 151/2
    52.1 they have the big one, Clarke has to go, he's been caught in the leg trap, Babar slanted it in off a length, no turn, Clarke half forward to try and defend, bad choice, as it hurries in and bounces, takes the inside edge onto pad, and pops up to short leg 158/3
    64.6 legspinner strikes on debut, Smith has failed to keep the cut down on this short and wide ball, which has bounced and carried comfortably to point, Yasir is delighted 206/4
    86.4 loud shout for leg before as Marsh gets a long stride forward, umpire Erasmus says no, and Pakistan review, this did not turn, and Marsh was beaten on the inside edge, that is hitting middle and leg, and Marsh has to walk back this time 262/7
    80.4 the new ball has worked immediately, and Imran Khan has his first Test wicket, Haddin has a rather loose drive at one that straightens from a good length outside off, and the inside edge sends the bails flying, the hard new ball could have been productive for Australia, but needed a better choice of stroke from Haddin 249/6
    102.1 Rahat removes Johnson with the short ball, it gets really big on Johnson, who tries to hook it, but manages a nothing connection in the end, and it travels tamely to deep square leg 299/9
    87.6 Pakistan nip out another one, Siddle tries to sweep with the turn, misses, is hit below the knee roll, umpire Kettleborough upholds the appeal this time, Australia review, but that is hitting leg, replays say, not clipping, but hitting flush 267/8
    103.1 that'll do, Yasir picks up his third, O'Keefe slogs at a length ball outside off, and the top edge is taken by Misbah running back at square leg 303/10

    40.3 Imraaaaan, he's given Pakistan the spark they needed! Moves around the wicket to spear in a very full delivery on middle and off stump. Possibly a little bit of reverse as well to make Rogers play all around it. Bails go flying, Imran pulls out the aeroplane celebration 92/5
    13.1 oopsy! Those deliveries were always the threat, the ones that keep going on with the arm. Warner was coming down the pitch to try and ease it through the covers. But he is beaten in the flight - in that there wasn't mich - and without the turn he was looking for, Warner is stranded. Sarfraz whips off the bails to spark the celebrations 44/1
    13.6 not this time! Another slider from Zulfiqar and this time Doolan plays a little across the line. Struck on the pads as he is beaten and he looked quite dead. Asks his partner about the review, Rogers might have said why not. But Doolan's decided against it. Walks off. 44/2
    16.2 he's gone! Clarke stands, sighs and then walks up to wonder about the review. That means he hasn't got bat to it, or doesn't know it if has.... He's walking off! This was another slider from the young leggie, brought Clarke forward to play for the turn and is struck in front of off stump again. Terrific bowling. 49/3
    16.5 they're falling like flies! This was looped up on middle and leg, Lyon plays for it and is playing around the front pad. Misses it and the ball turns just enough to convince Kettleborough that it would crash into off stump 49/4
    75.6 huge appeal from Pakistan, they are absolutely convinced. The umpires though look like they will take some assistance. Smith runs down the track and is met by a tossed up ball fired in on the pads, he looks to tuck it past short leg. But he's found the man. Terrific work again from the Pakistan close-in fielders. Smith is dragging himself off the field, head down, disconsolate. Such a good innings... Such a dogged innings. Gets a pat on his shoulder from his captain as he finally reaches the dressing room 170/8
    43.3 that's brilliant work from Azhar! This was by no means an outside edge, excellent reflexes. Again gorgeous loop from Zulfiqar to lure the batsman forward into playing with hard hands. Goes straight at silly point who does well to stay low enough to grab it 101/6
    47.1 oh, that's not the best bit of batting against spin! Haddin has turned a relatively straight delivery into a top class delivery! This Zulfi spell has brought Pakistan so much joy, not least of all for him. Wonderful reward for a bowler with amazing accuracy. Haddin was too slow on the forward defensive and was bring his bat around his front pad. Ample gap for the ball to skid on and ram into the stumps 105/7
    88.6 Sarfraz is ecstatic! Pakistan are ecstatic! Has Mitch been stumped? The third umpire has been called in. This was tossed up outside off, lures the batsman forward but he plays inside the line. Lunged way too far forward, and his back foot seems to be on the line. Tries to drag it back, but has be managed to do so before the bails completely come off. Touch and go... as touch and go as it can be.. Umpire Llong has a tough call to make. And he clicks the red button! Mitch has been sent packing, the Australian dressing room is none too pleased. 213/9
    91.1 wait, what happened there? Umpire Erasmus did not move, then he did as if he was stepping away to ensure he doesn't get in line with a throw, if it comes. And then raises the finger. Siddle wants a review, but it comes back against him. Siddle jumped down the track to defend, and manages to get just a little inside edge onto pad and straight into the hands of silly point. Five-for for Babar and he deserved it, after a few drops off his bowling 216/10
