    4.3 that's the nut! Bang on target, nip off the seam, a loose drive and a touch of inside edge, and the stumps are shattered! 12/1
    23.4 Wahab strikes and Australia are in trouble now! Akmal takes another catch! I between the dross Wahab has found some bounce and nibble and Haddin aimed a nothing steer to third man, got a faint edge and Kamran held on to the chance. 90/3
    18.4 gone! Akmal has held a very good catch and Ponting has to go! Things really bubbling over here. Ponting went back to cut a ball which wasn't really there for it, got a thick edge that Akmal did well to hold. It was given not out originally, but rightly was overturned on review. While waiting for the third umpire to confirm the edge there was some verbal exchanges though between Haddin and the Pakistan fielders and plenty of chat as Ponting was sent on his way 75/2
    30.1 chaos! White is run out in a terrible mix-up, a flick off the hip, Misbah swooped at short backward square, Akmal takes and the replay is conclusive! 117/4

    37.4 that's as soft as a baby possum. Hussey hardly got to the pitch of that one, and lobbed a simple chance to short midwicket. The two-paced wicket might take some of the blame, but that was poor from such an experienced campaigner 144/6
    45.5 Afridi strikes! Smith backs away to a googly that follows him and it crashes into middle stump 176/9
    38.4 outside off, nipping off the seam, grazing the edge, and Johnson is gone for a duck! The extra bounce did the trick, and Akmal's glovework has been as good as ... well, ever, probably 147/7
    44.3 there it is! The Umar Gul inswinging yorker strikes again. Why did he wait so long? Krejza backed away to give himself room to pierce the off side but he missed and the stumps were shattered instead 169/8
    46.4 that's it! Australia slump to 176 all out - their lowest since 1992. Pakistan have a celebratory huddle! Lee aimed a swipe but it got high on the bat and looped to mid-off 176/10

    8.4 there it is! A big appeal, late in-dip from a full length, but Akmal has gone for the review. I think it's optimistic. He was struck on the back leg, and that will surely clip the stumps. Indeed it does. A vital breakthrough! 45/2
    2.4 there it is! The breakthrough looked imminent, and so it was. A rapid delivery, Hafeez closed the face too early as he attempted to work a straight ball through midwicket, but a looping leading edge tempts Lee into a full-on sprint out of his follow-through, and he clings on to an excellent stretching take! 12/1
    31.6 a twist!? Surely not. But it is Pakistan, they're like England! Johnson removes the anchor Shafiq. Extra bounce clips the glove and heads towards slip, Haddin sprawls across to confuse the catcher but Watson's composure is intact and so it the catch! 139/5
    22.4 the change works! Younis has played a ropey dab outside off stump, a thin but undoubtable nick through to Haddin, and Australia have their opening! 98/3
    22.5 two in two! Sensational bowling from Lee! Outside off, in the channel, just enough lift, and Misbah's loose poke finds a grazed edge to Haddin! 98/4

    32.5 well, that was woefully predictable. Wearily predictable. Block, block, block, bust! Skips down the wicket, leans back and heaves. Not sure he bothered looking at the ball though and it went straight down long-on's throat 142/6
