    34.6 Wade goes, a soft dismissal in the end, bowled it quicker and it was struck well but straight back to the bowler, Nabi reacted well to bend low and take it clean 168/2
    6.5 that's out, there was a noise, short of a length, tried to chop it through point, a faint nick through the keeper, big cheers all round, there's a trumpet blowing somewhere, Shapoor Zadran's ecstatic 37/1
    37.6 stumped, Clarke just kept walking, was done in by the spin, it turned away as he charged down the pitch to launch him over midwicket, missed, the keeper collected, he was in no hurry to take down the stumps as Clarke had given up and began walking, four down now 181/4
    36.2 Maxwell has holed out, struck it very well but didn't get the elevation he wanted, struck it flat, tempted by the flight and played it straight down long-on's throat 172/3
    49.2 bowled'im, misses his half-century, shortish on the off, moves away to chop that through point, gets an inside edge onto the stumps 269/7
    43.6 run-out, yorker length on the off, dug out towards extra cover, excellent fielding there, collects it on the bounce and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, David Hussey was sent back, dived and failed to make it back 210/5
    48.6 gets the yorker right but after being hit around, in the blockhole on middle, Bailey fails to dig it out and the stumps take a beating 263/6

    5.5 Through the gate, Sadiq has been given a tough time, short of a good length, got it to nip back in and Sadiq, played a little outside the line to that one, was bowled between bat and pad 26/2
    1.5 bowled'im! Quick and it swung in to castle him, landed on middle, was late in bringing his bat down to play it, got an inside edge and was bowled, an early loss for Afghanistan 6/1
    35.6 taken! Stanikzai has to go and his arms are over his head in disbelief, short and wide and he drags it hard towards midwicket, Clarke reacts sharply and takes a good catch moving to his left, relief for Australia, the end of another fighting knock 165/6
    11.1 edged and taken by the keeper, short of a good length, it appeared to keep just a little low, Shehzad had made up his mind to cut, got a thick edge to Wade 49/3
    11.3 trapped in front, Pattinson pushes that full, on middle and leg, Mangal gets a little across, is on the crease when he misses and it strikes him on the pads, the only question was whether it missed leg. Unlikely, and that's what the umpire thinks as well, one more goes 49/4
    30.4 Johnson has struck, Nabi was rooted to the crease there and just loosely tried to chip that over the in-field on the off side, missed it completely and was bowled 135/5
    37.4 bowled by the slower one, he seemed to pick it, opened the face there to guide it towards third man, got an inside edge onto the stumps 171/8
    36.4 appeal for a catch, Bowden raises his finger after an eternity, there was an outside edge surely but did the ball bounce on its way to the keeper, poked at a fullish delivery. Did the ball bump into the ground before getting to the keeper? Bowden ultimately thinks not, we need another replay but officially he's out 166/7
    42.3 short and Naib shapes up for a cut, there was an edge, a clear sound as he went for it, Wade dived low and to his left to catch that, the umpires are trying to verify if it carried, they've gone to the third umpire. Replays show it was a clean catch, he's got to go 199/9
    43.5 holes out, tossed up and he swings hard, gets too much elevation there and finds Michael Hussey at deep midwicket 206/10
