Commentary

Pat Cummins given the responsibility. Umar Akmal and Abdul Razzaq are the batsmen in the middle now. It was Razzaq to Cummins that tied the game, what will Cummins to Razzaq bring? Praneet: "If ever there were a Utopian world , this would be the utopian cricket match." For those of you asking, Superover runs and wickets aren't added to a player's career stats. Surya: "Time to amend your half-time commentary that people will forget the match but not the catch. Now folks will say "THAT catch from THAT match"!"

Target for Pakistan is 12 runs. Still waiting to see who will bowl for Australia, and who Pakistan's batsmen are.

Australia will bat first in the Superover.

Warner, Watson and Bailey are Australia's chosen batsmen. The Pakistan team has a long discussion over who will bowl. It will be Umar Gul. Ajmal was off the field for the final two overs or so, which I think means he can't bowl now, which explains the long discussion over who to choose.

END OF OVER:
20 | 9 Runs 2 Wkts | AUS: 151/8

Abdul Razzaq to Cummins, OUT, it's a Superover, it wasn't the best final ball form Razzaq but it was good enough, a full toss on the pads, Cummins was looking to work that to the leg side, a leading edge that ballons towards mid-off, Imran Nazir and Umar Akmal both went for it, Nazir called for it, Umar backed away, Nazir takes it, Cummins wrings his hands in disappointment, this has been some game

Abdul Razzaq to Cummins, SIX runs, oh my! he is nerveless with the bat here as well, a massive hit , a short of length ball heading down leg stump, that is a monster hit from Cukmmins that sends it over the wide long-on boundary, the scores are level, Australia coach Mickey Arthur loves that shot

Abdul Razzaq to Christian, 1 run, short ball heading for the helmet, Christian can only get a single as he pulls it towards midwicket, that put plenty on pressure on young Cummins, who was nerveless on Test debut with the bat

Abdul Razzaq to Cummins, 1 run, a slower full ball on middle and leg, once again it is Arafat who fields after Cummins sweeps to deep square leg

Abdul Razzaq to Christian, 1 run, a full toss is whipped towards midwivcket for a single

Abdul Razzaq to Bailey, OUT, Razzaq strikes first ball, the birthday boy can't finish it, a slower short ball outside off, Bailey goes for the pull, a top edge and that sails towards midwicket, the substitute Arafat is everywhere, he takes the catch, Australia's bowlers will have to do the job with the bat now, you wouldn't believe the noise levels in Dubai

A long discussion over who will bowl the final over. For a moment there it looked like Shoaib Malik will bowl, he gave his cap to the umpire, before taking it back. Sania Mirza, Malik's wife, didn't look too thrilled that Malik won't be bowling. After much drama, it will be Abdul Razzaq.
