    1.5 super throw from the deep and the third umpire has a look, Warner latches on to the width outside off and slices it in the air just over backward point, Umar Akmal runs back from cover point, slides and fires a flat throw to the keeper, Watson wasn't quick enough on the third run 14/1
    6.5 fell for the trap! Warner makes a lot of room to crash that over the off side, the ball is there to be hit but he doesn't spot the fielder Imran Nazir at deep point, easy catch 54/2
    8.4 good reflexes! Clarke gets slightly forward and beside the line to slash it away over the off side, but Fawad is alert at point and cups his hands behind that screamer, he kept his eyes on the ball which was like a bolt of lightning 68/3

    10.5 fabulous cricket from Pakistan! Gul catches White all at sea with a short delivery, the ball lobs off White's body and lobs to Fawad at point, Gul thinks White got some glove on it and they go up for the catch, but an unsettled and dazed White ambles out of his crease and an alert Fawad fires the throw at the stumps at White's end, the third umpire takes a look 77/4
    11.1 forgettable debut in the end for Birt, Malik comes round the wicket and fires it flat on the stumps, Birt goes a long way across and tries to paddle it away, the ball crashes on to leg and middle 78/5
    11.5 it's a wide down the leg side and Pakistan aren't complaining at all! Cleverly bowled, fires it down the leg side on seeing Haddin come down the pitch, Kamran does well to follow the line and whip off the bails, he's a long way out 81/6
    14.5 the slower ball from hell! That was actually a googly! Naved foxes Smith who doesn't quite know whether to play at it or not, the ball cuts back in and slices him in half, he won't want to see a replay of that 102/7
    16.2 it gets worse for Australia! Another terrific delivery, Gul bangs it in really short and it's a snorter, Johnson desperately sways backward to evade it and the ball brushes his glove, Kamran knows it 106/8
    17.4 not so good running this time! Hussey rocks back and pulls a slower short delivery, mixup in the running and Umar fires the throw to the bowler's end, he's gone by a mile 119/9
    18.4 easy catch for Alam this time, Tait gets forward to a pitched up delivery and ends up spooning it straight to point 127/10

    2.4 beats him for pace outside the off stump, he tries to cut through the off side but gets a thick outside edge snapped up by Watson at second slip, poor choice of shot, he should have left it 10/2
    1.5 first blood to Australia in the chase! Nazir taps it down towards short extra cover and sets off, risks the single to Johnson who has a powerful arm, he fires it at the base of the stumps and Nazir is just short, third umpire takes a look 5/1
    14.1 gone this time and he shakes his head! Kamran takes on Tait with a small shimmy and drills the ball to Hussey at mid-on, just failing to get the desired elevation 98/5
    5.3 gets his man with the incutter! Pitches length, a slower ball it seems, and cuts back off the track to hit Latif on the flap as he shapes to work it away, looks to the naked eye as its headed into leg stump and so the umpire agrees ... but, but, but replays show a thin inside edge so Latif is unlucky, a bad call from Paul Reifel sends him on his way 44/3
    8.4 good catch and its 4 for 59! Tait aims for the yorker but serves up a low full toss on Malik's toes, and what does he do? He chips it in the air straight to Birt at midwicket 59/4
    19.1 he's out, would you believe he is out! Umar clears his front leg to get some elevation and slogs across the line to a length ball, picking out Warner running in from wide long-on who takes a low catch and throws his arms up in celebration 118/9
    15.3 edged and taken at slip, a maiden international wicket for Smith! The decision from Clarke to plug a slip works a charm, as Fawad pushes at a nice delivery tossed up just outside off and pokes a straightforward catch into White's lap 103/6
    17.2 stumped by a yard! Smith tossed it up on a length, gets a wee bit of turn, Rana dances down the track and swings, missing by a year, and Haddin does the rest 107/7
    18.6 bowled and listen to the crowd go wild! Gul walks right across the sticks to about a sixth stump and looks to play some short of bizarre shot to fine leg, but is nowhere near the fuller, straighter ball 118/8
