    11.1 nice line and length, around off stump, Wasti driving into the covers, opens the face of the bat too much, and the ball is heading straight for the gully's head, easy catch for Waugh 44/2
    7.4 first wicket of the world cup today, extra bounce, Saeed trying the glance, comes off the top of the face of the bat, thru to the keeper 32/1
    39.3 big lofted drive, coming down the wicket, Abdur was launching himself at everything, and justifably so, Fleming takes the good safe catch standing a metre inside the rope at wide long off 164/4
    12.3 swinging away, pitching on the off stump, straightens down the line, Ijaz misses the defence, into the pad, big appeal, Willey says yes 46/3
    46.2 toe crusher literally cripples Inzamam, Wasim sets off for a single, Inzamam lays down just outside his crease, ends up crawliong trying to run out Wasim, but Wasim wins the race 230/6
    44.4 sweep short straight to Warne at short fine leg, here comes the overdue mixup, both batsmen at the bowler's end, Yousuf is walking off, I reckon Inzamam is actually the batsman out there 216/5
    49 ball moving just outisde the off stump, Wasim trying to loft over the covers, faint outside edge to the keeper 262/7

    0.3 seaming in from left hander to left hander, thru the gate, into the off stump, another great innings from Gilchrist 0/1
    17 angling the face of the bat, trying to work it down to the 3rd man, outside edge, quite thick, tremendous catch by Moint, diving to hi slow right 91/2
    19.2 he knew the fieldsman was there becuase the previous ball went straight there, but he went for a low pull shot, top edge floats thru the air a little and down the throat of the diving Saeed Anwar 100/3
    19.4 trying a sweep, this is too much, not committing to the shot and especially not judging it well, off the top edge, Moin dives at forward short leg 101/4
    44.5 inswinging yorker, finally gets one on line, Waugh misses the cover drive, off and middle stump hit, what a match we have 238/6
    41.3 just trying to defend down the pitch, edges, and a safe easy catch to the point, Pakistan finally get a breakthrough 214/5
    49.3 outswinger, batsman moves away, trying to loft over cover, plays inside it, colelcts middle and off 265/9
    46.2 pushed short of the gully, quick single, Warne dives, Ijaz with the underarm direct hit, TV called, and he's half a metre short 248/7
    47.2 predictably, the tailender goes the slog over the mid wicket, doesn't judge Saqlain's extra bounce, top edge off the attempted lofted sweep, Wasim moves in and calls "mine" around the short mid wicket posiiton 251/8
