    2.2 pitched up, he goes reaching outside off for the ball again, and this time his drive finds short extra cover 15/2
    1.2 that has to be very close, and Nazir has to go back, straightening right on the stumps, Nazir hit on the pad on the forward push, looked out on first look, pitched off, swung in, struck him just below the knee roll in front of middle and leg 7/1
    9.2 hello, that is one of the softest dismissals you'll see, Jamshed pushing tamely off the back foot straight to extra cover, gentle offspinner from round the stumps, on a length, bounces a bit more, he pushes away from the body, and extra cover jogs in to take the gift 36/6
    2.5 bowled 'em, ripper, Cummins from wide of the crease, angles it in, swings it in even more, too much for Malik, who goes for the drive, and is bowled through the gate, hit middle and off, top delivery 15/3
    3.4 another one, leading edge, tame ans loopy and straight to mid off, was looking to work a length ball square off the pads, closed the face early, and that was it 16/4
    5.1 excellent judge of a catch Michael Hussey is, and he shows it again, that was a pretty decent stroke, Umar Akmal walked out and created momentum for the flick over midwicket, Hussey was far away from the ball as he sprinted across from deep midwicket to his left, took it some feet from the rope, overbalanced and got still closer to the boundary, and steadied himself calmly 19/5
    16.3 the slow bouncer earns Cummins another wicket, a similar delivery had been put away over point by the same batsman in the previous game in the Super Over, this time Razzaq slashes it on his toes, and short third man scrambles to his right to take it 64/9
    14.1 Hogg deserved one, he did, the wrong 'un, they haven't picked him at all, opened up for the pull, it spun away from him, he flailed weakly, got a tame top edge, slip got around to it 56/7
    15.5 comes out, chops it off the stumps behind point, Gul out by a long way as Wade gathers the throw on the half-volley and takes the bails off 60/8
    19.1 got him, fullish and crashes into the stumps from round the wicket, Ajmal looking to work it to leg, misses, and the stumps are on the ground 74/10
