    18.3 Watson gets rid of Akmal, who goes for a flamboyant pull but only manages to bottom-edge the ball onto the base of legstump 75/2
    7.1 he strikes first ball, Afridi's gone, shortish ball on legstump, Afridi is hurried into playing a pull, the ball lobs towards square leg, Hopes makes plenty of ground to his right from midwicket and latches onto the ball 30/1
    23.4 Younis holes out to mid-on, he was looking to loft the ball over mid-on, miscues it high in the air, Johnson races back and judges the catch well, positioning himself nicely to pouch the ball, does a rugby-style drop-kick to celebrate 89/3
    31.5 soft dismissal, Malik becomes Johnson's 100th ODI victim, an innocuous delivery, full and outside off, Malik goes for the drive, he can't keep it along the ground, and finds Ponting at short cover 123/4
    46.2 shuffles, Lee sees him do so and bangs it short on the off, tries to chip it over midwicket but the shot wasn't on, just lobbed it up towards White who took a dolly at the edge of the circle 186/5
    49.3 hit wicket, what was he doing there? Given a wide, bowled full outside off, Misbah, trying to leave it alone given the width, trotted back onto his stumps, not strange for Misbah, he's made it a habit to get out in unusual ways 198/6

    8.4 got him! Bowled on a good length on the off, it shot off the pitch with a hint of some away movement, surprised Watson who played at it with the intention of guiding it towards point, got an edge straight to Akmal 44/1
    11.3 he's given him! Spin does the trick, drifting in towards middle, gets forward to push it into the leg side, his bat hits the pad and so does the ball, appeared to strike him in line with middle, two down 59/2
    31.2 tumbling catch, well done Umar Gul, tossed up outside off, slog-swept it wide of deep square leg where Gul ran a couple of yards to his right, dived full length to his right and took it clean, just inches from the ground, excellent effort 140/3
    40.5 big wicket! Done in by the yorker, inswinging yorker into the blockhole on the off stump, Hussey can't get his bat down in time, Naved doesn't know it's out, instead he appeals for the lbw but realises he's got one once Hussey walks off 174/5
    36.4 bowled'im! Prodigious turn for Ajmal there, bowled quick, kept low, Ferguson didn't anticipate that, it zipped through him and rattled middle and leg 157/4
    41.5 the offcutter, memories of Asif bowling Laxman in that Karachi Test, lands on a good length outside off and darts back in big time to beat White through the gate and send the off stump rolling 176/7
    41.2 gone! The spice is back in this match. Asif gets his comeback wicket, bowled full outside off, Hopes just drives it uppishly straight to Younis at mid-off who bends low and tumbles to take a good low catch 175/6
    45.5 bowled'im! The top spinner from Ajmal does the trick, lands on middle and comes onto him quickly, he's made room to play that through the off side but is beaten by the pace, it crashes into the stumps to send hearts racing across the ground 187/8
