    0.4 oh what a ripper from White at second slip, smart bowling from Harris, this one doesn't swing in to Butt - three inswingers followed by the angling delivery, takes the healthy edge as Butt is tentative, and White at second slip dives full length to his left and takes it clean as a whistle 2/1
    9.3 soft dismissal, goes for the forceful shot through the covers, but it's not short and wide enough, slightly closer than he thinks and the outside edge settles in Haddin's gloves 38/3
    4.1 edged and taken, Harris has taken two wickets without giving a run! And what a beauty to get his second wicket too, pitched just back of a length, just outside off, Younis has to play at it, and the away movement does the rest 14/2
    9.5 he's given him! looks to tuck him up with a short delivery into the ribs, goes down the leg side, and there is a noise as it passes Yousuf who is looking to get his hands out of the way. Big shout and given, it could have clipped the shirt too, let's wait for the replay. Tight, tight call, it did hit the shirt, but the Hot Spot shows a slight, the slightest, brush on the bottom glove too 39/4
    29.2 No. 3 for Harris! Umar looks to drop it at his feet and get Afridi on strike, even softer than the previous time. Too soft it turns it out, as it bounces in the crease, and hits it bat again and rolls onto ever so gently hit the stumps enough to tickle the bail off its groove 125/6
    27.1 Hauritz in action again, Alam calls for one cute single too many, hit straight and powerfully to mid-off this time, and Hauritz hits the stumps down and the desperate dive from Alam is not enough. On the full, the middle of middle 99/5
    30.6 Boom Boom goes, another top edge on the pull shot, and this one lobs towards short third, Hauritz takes a few strides back and takes a safe catch 131/8
    29.3 he is on a hat-trick, what a beauty to get Rana, that's a mean delivery to get first up. Back of a length, around off, making him play, and then holding its line enough to take the edge 125/7
    37.5 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 142/10
    34.4 bowled him! Ajmal should have known better, he plays the same tricks for a living! tossed up high, over the eye level, draws Ajmal into the big shot, and then it dips, suddenly falling a couple of feet shorter than it looked like, and then breaks in and goes through the gate 140/9
