    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
