END OF OVER:
41 | 9 Runs | PAK: 178/6 | RR: 4.34

  • Abdul Razzaq20 (24b)
  • Umar Akmal44 (59b)
  • JJ Krejza10-0-44-1
  • B Lee8-1-28-4

Pakistan win by four wickets Umar can take a lot of credit for steering the chase home with an unbeaten 44. Shafiq set it up with a patient 46 but Brett Lee and Jason Krejza aside, Australia were impotent. Finally, after 34 games without defeat in the World Cup, Australia have been toppled. Intriguingly this sets up a likely clash between Australia and India in the quarters, while Pakistan will probably play West Indies. Andrew McGlashan will have plenty more in his bulletin and we also have a gallery. Amazing how simple Pakistan made it in the end. There is a man who deserves plenty of credit - Waqar Younis - and Osman Samiuddin has an excellent interview with him by. Plenty to savour and in time our YouTube channel will have interviews and whatnot so look out.

Ponting, in that typically Aussie way, describes his team's batting effort as 'ordinary'. It was a lot less than that. Afridi on the other hand is full of bounding energy and when asked to explain his dismissal, smiles broadly and pleads "don't ask! don't ask!". Ah, how can you not love that man!?

Umar is named man of the match for his unbeaten 44. Lee was probably the outstanding performer of the day but losers and losers. That's all from us - Sahil Dutta, Andrew Miller and Andrew McGlashan. India take on West Indies tomorrow which will decide the who plays who in the quarters.

Krejza to Abdul Razzaq, FOUR, that's it! Australia's proud undefeated run in World Cups finally comes to an end. Razzaq creams this through cover, calmly tucks his bat under his arm and walks off! Comfortable win in the end and Pakistan top the group!

Krejza to Abdul Razzaq, FOUR, just one hit away now! Too short from Krejza and Razzaq gets deep into his crease to haul this through midwicket for four

Lee to Umar Akmal, 1 run, slower ball, or at least the pitch made it a slower ball. Umar waits, nudes to leg and jogs through
39.3
1
Lee to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, smoothly driven through cover. Nine needed now and finally the heads are dropping. Ponting has been stroppy all tournament and looks thoroughly annoyed at the moment

Lee to Abdul Razzaq, no run, ooh, already he's found something that Tait couldn't. It zips off the track and climbs past Razzaq's outside edge

Just 10 runs to go for Australia's decade-long record. Here's Lee. Hat-trick anyone?

Tait to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, looked like an edge here! Fell just short of Haddin who fumbled the take to allow Razzaq through

Tait to Abdul Razzaq, no run, poor old Tait, he's busting his body to drag something out of the old ball and tired pitch but the short ball gets barely shin high
37.2

Tait to Abdul Razzaq, no run, this time Tait lands a quick one, sliding past the edge through to Razzaq

Brett Lee is warming up, he's been Australia's only real threat.
