    0.5 Butt strikes for Pakistan in the very first over and Australia are 1 down for 2. Pitches in line with the off and middle and swings in to strike the pad as Maddinson plays forward. Loud appeal and given by the umpire. Good start for Pakistan. 2/1
    1.4 Australia are two down, a short of a length and bit of a wide delivery outside the off stump, Beaton cuts and gets the edge in the air and looks to go over the slips but Babar Azam sticks out his hand and looks to take it with two hands but it sticks on one hand and he was surprised by the catch he took. 10/2
    4.2 edged and gone. Pitches outside the off stump and on a good length, leaving the batsman, Marsh plays forward and gets the edge through to Waqas. Australia lose their third wicket. Butt picks up his second wicket, good bowling this. 23/3
    21.2 lovely delivery from Raza, quicker delivery, pitches outside the off stump and spins away to take the outside edge to Rameez Aziz at slip. Australia are in trouble at 5 down for 82. Turn and bounce for Raza. 82/5
    18.3 googly outside the off stump, cut through cover, coming back for the second run, Hammad fields the ball and throws it to Waqas, who runs out Floros, referred to third umpire, red light flashes and Floros has to go. Wonderful piece of fielding by Hammad. 80/4
    46.2 good length delivery coming in and Armstrong looking for the drive through the off side, gets the inside edge and drags it onto the stumps. Two in two for Bhatti. 189/8
    34.5 this time he edges and taken by Waqas. It was a touch short and spins in slightly, Triffitt cuts and edges, Waqas does very well to catch it, well done. 128/6
    46.1 full toss hit high in the air and down to long on, Shehzad runs forward and judges it well and takes the catch. Richardson goes after a good knock, 44 from 44 deliveries. 189/7
    48.4 slower delivery pushed through cover, a misfield and goes to the deep, there is no second as the sweeper Usman is quickly onto the ball and there is a mix-up, the throw goes to the bowlers end, Bhatti does not collect the ball cleanly, his hands hits the stumps and the bails fall, then he takes the ball from the ground and removes the stumps and touches it with ball to run out Hazlewood. 199/9

    17.3 another wicket down, tossed up outside the off stump and Babar cuts and edges through to Triffitt, who takes a good sharp catch. Loud shout and given by the umpire, Babar is not happy as he trudges off. 74/3
    4.2 edged and taken at second slip. Short of a length delivery outside the off stump, a bit more bounce and Ahsan Ali stays in the crease and feels for it, gets the outside edge and Beaton takes the catch. 15/1
    15.4 tossed up outside the off stump and comes in, Shehzad plays down the wrong line, strikes the pad in line and a loud appeal from the bowler and the fielders, given by the umpire. 69/2
    42.4 is that the decisive blow? Ghumman is bowled, gave it some air and got it to turn in after pitching it full, Ghumman closed the face a little early on that one and played inside the line, it spun back in to knock into middle and off 156/7
    29.5 Doran gets three, kept it flat and got to turn in, Aziz had shaped himself for a cut, made room to play it past point but it came onto him much quicker than he expected, missed and it knocked the off stump 110/4
    30.5 Hammad's gone, dismissed for the first time in the tournament at the worst possible time, short and wide, a touch too close to cut as it came in, went for it, got a thick edge straight to the keeper, Australia are on top now 111/5
    35.3 fuller outside the off stump and Waqas goes for a big booming drive, gets the edge and off Triffitt's pads, the ball lobs up to the short third man fielder, Hazlewood takes the catch. It has been referred to third umpire, red light comes on and Waqas has to go. 130/6
    44.4 Bhatti is sent back, the pressure was building, bowls a length delivery on middle and he's tempted, tries to swing it over midwicket, misses, it darts away just a hint to take off 166/8
    45.2 he's gone now, full and wide, there to drive and he tries to do exactly that, gets a faint nick to the keeper, Australia are just one wicket away from glory 168/9
    46.4 Australia have won the World Cup! Lands on a good length outside off, tries to swing it over midwicket, gets a faint inside edge straight through to the keeper 182/10
