    22.2 Bollinger's done it! Another shortish ball but it wasn't short enough to pull, Butt went for it anyway and top-edged it, Haddin took a second or two to pick up where the ball was going, he then turned around, ran back a few paces and held on to the catch 117/2
    12.5 Kamran goes, a needless shot under the circumstances, a slower delivery, a legcutter bowled just outside off, tries to smash him over the in-field on the off side but failed to pick the change in pace and ended up skying it, Clarke and Ponting get underneath it but the deputy calls first and holds on to a well-judged catch 62/1
    43.1 and he strikes immediately, short on the off stump and Younis goes for the pull, sends it straight into the palms of Shaun Marsh running in from deep square leg, judged it well 221/6
    24.4 bowled him!! Superb short ball from Bollinger does for Yousuf. Bollinger got the ball to rise sharply from just short of a length, Yousuf jumped up to defend it, he got bat to ball but the ball bounced behind him and he watched it bounce on to the top of the stumps and dislodge the bails, I wonder why he didn't attempt to swat it away with the bat, he had loads of time to hit the ball away 123/3
    30.2 edged and gone! Akmal has been troubled when the length is shorter and now he slashes at a short and wide one from McKay and Haddin takes an easy catch 156/4
    40.1 Pakistan lose their fifth, similar dismissal to that of Umar Akmal, it's short and wide and he makes room to play a cut, gets a thick edge straight to Haddin 205/5
    46.6 Watson gets him with a short one, banged it in on the off stump and he tried to clear deep midwicket with a pull but didn't have much on this one, Hussey was perfectly positioned and took it comfortably 269/8
    43.4 edged and gone, Aamer has edged it straight to Haddin, in the channel outside off and he simply pokes at it, gets a thin nick, tame dismissal 227/7

    48.6 his eyes lit up as it landed on a length and he struck it fairly well too but straight down long-on's throat, didn't get the elevation he wanted, Watson's taken four, his best figures in ODIs 274/9
    49.4 run out, Pakistan are bowled out, short on middle, goes for the pull, hits him on the arm and lobs up to slip, appeal for a caught behind turned down but they decide to go through with the run and Ponting scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end to find Asif short 274/10

    3.3 done in for pace and bounce, what a snorter from Aamer, fired it on the off stump and nips back in sharply and catches the handle of the bat as he looks away and tries to fend it off, lobs straight to mid-on to give Pakistan the early breakthrough 16/1
    8.4 Asif has struck, drew him into playing the drive, bowled it on a length outside off and he struck it loosely and in the air to mid-off where Rana took a simple catch 37/2
    17.6 Ponting's innings comes to an end, it's flighted outside off and he's made to reach to play the drive, turns away and Ponting ends up getting a thick outside edge straight to Khalid Latif , the substitute fielder, at backward point 84/3
    36.3 run out, Clarke is gone, White drops it into the off side on the pitch and Clarke calls for a single, Naved gets to it early and takes out the stumps at the striker's end with an underarm throw to find Clarke well short 186/4
    46.2 foxed by the slower ball! Well done, out the back of the hand, pitches on a length, White makes room and heaves across, misses, and the ball shatters into off and middle, off walks White for a splendid century, well played man 260/5
