    6.6 good length delivery and Farhat looking for the drive, checks his shot and hits in the air to mid-off, where Johnson takes the catch low down in front of him. Australia get the first breakthrough. 34/1
    10.6 caught behind! what a catch! full down leg, the batsman tries to tickle it fine but he can't get past the wicket-keeper, because Haddin was diving to his right with his body airborne and fully outstretched to take a spectacular one-gloved catch. A thrilling dismissal. 51/3
    10.4 caught behind! good length delivery on a troubling line, draws the outside edge from the batsman which the keeper collects bending forward to take it low 50/2
    19.3 caught and bowled! charges the delivery to smash it hard back at the bowler who takes it with great difficulty between his hands and his chest, causing the bowler so much distress that he falls to the floor only just holding onto the ball 77/4
    34.5 Akmal falls to Bollinger, fuller delivery outside the off stump and Umar Akmal looks to go over the infield, miscues it high in the air to extra cover, Johnson runs back and takes a good catch. There goes Pakistan's chance of a win. 133/8
    19.5 caught! back to a shortish ball, cut away in the air directly to Hussey at backward point who takes a straight-forward catch at shin height 77/5
    26.4 caught behind! pushes limply at a good length delivery, gets a little outside edge that is happily collected by the keeper 103/6
    33.5 caught behind! beaten by a ball down the off side, Haddin jumps up in excitement for a catch. The umpire isn't interested so Haddin immediately calls for a referral. Hot spot shows a slight nick and that's enough to send Sami on his way. 133/7
    37.6 all over for Pakistan, tossed up wide outside the off stump, Gul goes for an almighty slog, miscues it high in the air to Siddle at mid-off. 139/10
    37.4 there goes Kaneria, tossed up delivery outside the off stump and Kaneria looking to go over the midwicket fence, miscues it high in the air and down the throat of Watson at deep midwicket. 135/9
