    8.5 Sharp catch by the captain! Haddin makes room to a full ball and tries to scoop it over mid-off, the ball makes contact with the bottom half of the bat and travels quickly to Younis at short mid-off who leaps and takes the catch over his head 58/1
    14.6 beaten in flight! North chips down the track on seeing the extra flight but Ajmal cleverly gets it to go through straight and foxes him, Akmal effects an easy stumping. North was probably expecting it to turn away. Ajmal set it up the previous ball by bowling the doosra 83/2
    29.1 Gul finally gets a reward, he lands it on a good length on the corridor outside the offstump and Clarke gets a very thin leading edge as he shapes to clip it to the on side, Gul beat the bat on a few occasions in his first spell so it was a matter of time before he claimed a wicket 140/3
    36.3 tossed up outside off, it's a conventional offspinner and Symonds is a little lazy on the cut and he ends up chopping it onto the base of the offstump 166/4
