    14.1 this time Australia take the catch, David Warner at long-on,Hafeez plays an ugly slog, the boundaries are massive here, there isn't enough on that to clear the rope, Warner was waiting, takes a good low catch, Watson will be relieved his drop in the previous over didn't cost him team that much 97/3
    1.2 brilliant delivery from Starc, that one swung one and Nazir was clueless about it, through the bat and pad gap and it crashes into middle stump, what a start to Starc's international T20 career, a duck for Imran Nazir 13/1
    12.3 sensational catch from Dan Christian, even he can't believe it, a massive grin on his face as he gets up after plucking that one-handed blinder, set to be a Youtube classic that, Jamshed scooped that one over mid-off, Christian had to back-pedal, he had plenty of ground to cover, he wasn't going to make it so he puts in a full-length dive and stretches out his left hand, it sticks, and it doesn't pop out as he hits the ground, that could well be the catch of the year 89/2

    19.1 starts the over with wicket, slapped right to deep midwicket and Umar Akmal has to go, a slower delivery, length, that is right off the middle of the bat, but that isn't good enough to clear the rope 143/4

    4.4 is there anything Ajmal can't do? first over of the game , with Warner on fire, Ajmal has him bowled, Warner's cameo is over, the regulation offspinner from Ajmal, drifts in and spins away to take out the off stump, Warner is distraught 40/1
    10.2 Ajmal is a magician, no doubt about it, now he gets Watson lbw, Watson went to sweep that one, he misses and the turning ball strikes his pads, a massive appeal, the umpire thinks about it and then raises the finger, that ball tuned a lot, Ajmal has plenty to say to Watson as the batsman walks off 79/2
    15.1 Gul gets the big wicket, Michael Hussey is gone, the crowd is going berserk, it was shortish from Gul, Hussey looked to pull that but can't connect properly, that loops towards long-on, easy catch there, difficult for Australia now 109/4
    11.2 a run-out, a direct hit from Umar Akmal, Australia lose one more, pushed that towards backward point and White wanted one, took a few paces down the track, there was no run in that as White belatedly realises, he looks to hasten back, by then Umar Akmal has fired in a throw that catches White short, two wickets in two overs for Pakistan, the crowd is loving it, Pakistan's fielding coach looking pleased as well 84/3
    19.1 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 142/7
    16.2 Tanvir has struck, bowling from well wide of the crease once more, angling in and Hussey swipes at it, he misses and that knocks back off stump, they are going to watch for the no-ball, there's no problem there, and Australia in deep trouble now 117/5
    18.5 insanity! direct hit from third man, this is certainly not the Pakistan team we all expect, Matthew Wade is gone, brilliance from the substitute fielder Arafat, a yorker from Gul just outside off, squeezed down to third man, Wade wanted the second, but he was well out when that throw crashed into the stumps 142/6

    19.6 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 151/8
