    11.3 Asoka has struck again, no movement, going with angle, headed towards middle stump, and it had to be pitched outside leg. Asoka de Silva doesn't think so, and raises his finger. It's pitched way outside leg. What's more? It's going over the stumps. Salman Butt is furious as he walks off. No show of dissent at the wicket, though 47/2
    1.6 given! Akmal moves across to work it to the leg, misses it completely, Harris goes for the shout right away. Asoka de Silva upholds it. Replays show the ball kissing the top of off, and possibly hitting him outside the line. There were two sounds, but definitely no inside edge 14/1
    13.3 that's a beast of a delivery to get on a slow pitch, digs it in short, Younis thinks he is safely swaying away, but it chases him all the way back, and kisses the bat on the way. Haddin takes a nice overhead catch, one-handed, full stretch, lovely to watch 60/4
    12.5 like they say in the Caribbean, after one time is two times! he looks to run it down to third man again, and this is the third inside edge he gets, this time the pad doesn't come around in time to save him 58/3
    32.2 his penchant for the late-cut gets him, looks to manufacture a single, Harris is too close to his body - in fact it nips back in - and gets the outside edge 145/5
    36.4 and finally his shuffle is breached, the shuffle always leaves him exposed to a sharp incoming delivery, and perhaps for the first time tonight, Australia bowl one such delivery to Fawad, and the inside edge cannons into the middle stump 168/6
    43.2 Harris has roared right back! Perfect delivery, yorker, landing on the crease on front of middle, and squeezes under Afridi's bat. What a ripper! 226/7
    45.1 and Harris gets five, Rana is going for everything, doesn't connect well, and lobs it to midwicket. Harris delighted, what an effort this has been 238/9
    43.4 No. 4 for Harris, Gul just throws his bat at this length ball, gets under it, and it goes up perpendicularly, Haddin gets under it and takes a nice catch despite the swirl 226/8
    not out
    47.4 that's the series for Australia. 3-0! Asif top-edges when looking slog, and Haddin is not letting anybody else take it 246/10
