Commentary

Presentation: Loads of prizes being give out. This could take the whole night.

Mitchell Starc is the Man of the Match: "There was a little bit on the pitch. We all bowled well tonight, full credit to out batters, it wasn't easy out there."

Misbah: "Bowlers have done a wonderful job for us. We should have scored 230, but our batsmen messed up. The spinners bowled well. We were 30-35 runs short. We're repeating the mistakes from SL."

Clarke: "The Pakistan spinners bowled well. Ajmal's quite hard to pick. We will look at footage of him and look to play him better. I thought it was a bit cooler tonight. I think we handled the conditions better tonight."

That's it from us here. Thanks for the mails. You can read the match report once it's updated. Cheers!

End of match: That ends an absorbing low-scoring contest. Australia really had to slog for this. To overcome Pakistan's spinners in such conditions is no joke, but Clarke and Bailey showed that it could be done, even if it meant using up 50 overs.

Pakistan will look back at this and point to the fact that they failed to bat out 50 overs. Who knows what might have happened if they had added at least 20 more? Their bowlers and fielders did the best they could. The batsmen didn't. Stay with us for the presentation.

Aizaz Cheema to Bailey, SIX runs, That siphons off six! Top shot by Bailey, made room and used the extra pace of Cheema and lofts crisply over long-off

7 needed off 12. Is there room for another twist?
