    22.1 edged and gone! He had troubled Butt, and eventually got rid of him. Tossed up, drifting into the left hander and spun away after landing on a good length, Butt tried to open the face, got an edge and Clarke took a dolly at slip 95/1
    25.2 arm ball does the trick! He failed to pick it, flat and quick on the off, dipping in, was pushed back and tried to whip it through the leg side, failed to get his bat down in time and the stumps took a beating! 107/4
    22.2 Hauritz strikes again! Stopped on him and bounced more than he expected, hit the high end of the bat as he tried to play that off the back foot, lobbed up towards midwicket where Symonds took a good catch diving forward 95/2
    25.1 wicket off his first ball, needless shot, tossed up outside off, tried to clear the long-on boundary, mistimed it and Hauritz just had to run back a few steps to pouch an easy one 107/3
    46.3 run out, now that's definitely the decisive wicket, slower one outside off, tries to chop it down, gets an under-edge on the bounce to Haddin, Malik sets off for a single, is sent back, an under-arm flick from the keeper crashes into the stumps and the former Pakistan captain is well short 170/9
    29.1 and another one goes! Oh this is some suicidal batting, I tell you! Clarke proposes, Afridi accepts with a wild two-step and a slash of the bat only to give Hussey a juggling catch at first slip, the wheels are coming off Pakistan's gravy train 123/5
    35.5 the slower one does him in, landed full on middle and leg and he just chipped it to Hopes at mid-on, bowled at 109 kmph, he clearly didn't pick it and Australia are on top now 141/6
    40.3 Arafat swings and misses and the stumps are pegged back! The pressure was building, they failed to get the singles and he had a desperate swipe at a full ball outside off, missed it, it spun in to strike the off stump 148/7
    46.2 he's gone! Is that the decisive blow? Came onto him quick, short on middle, was tempted, went for the pull, got the top-edge and Hussey at midwicket ran to his left to complete an easy catch 170/8
    47.1 Bang on the stumps, has a wild swing, misses, and timber!! 171/10
