Commentary

Australia continue to be on a roll. Check this out: since the Ashes last year, they have lost just three ODIs and have won series against England, India and Pakistan, and also the Champions Trophy. And those three losses were a dead rubber, a Dhoni special, and an unsuccessful defence in the Delhi evening dew. Pakistan, well, they will want to somehow win something before they leave; they have only two chances left. One of them will come on Sunday, the last match of the series. But before that, on Saturday young boys from both countries will play the Under-19 World Cup final at the picturesque Bert Sutcliffe Oval in the outskirts of Christchurch. We will bring that live too. Thanks for joining us today, okay bye

Harris to Iftikhar Anjum, OUT, Ten wickets in two matches for Harris, and has he worked this one out beautifully or what? Four short deliveries, tucking him up, getting a short leg in, keeping him in the crease, and then sucker punch, full and wide, and the edge flies to right of Haddin who dives and takes it single-handed. No. 5 for Haddin too. I think Waqar Younis holds the record for most back-to-back five-fors in ODIs, he got three. Harris has got two
