    5.4 gone this time! Sami strikes! That is massive relief for Pakistan, things were looking out of hand, but this was dug in a touch short, Warner tried to pull but could only top-edge it down to Umar Akmal, who made no mistake on the square leg boundary 51/1
    16.4 good ball from Saeed Ajmal sees the end of Watson! Quicker ball and flat and full, Watson looking to unleash another huge leg-side swipe, misses and is struck bang in front. Brings the end to a brilliant knock 164/4
    7.5 gone! Real bonus for Hafeez and Pakistan! Quicker ball, Clarke gave himself room to try and cut it away, but it zipped through and castled middle stump 64/2
    16.1 finally, some peace for Pakistan. Hussey departs, he tried to mow this away into the leg side again, but finally finds a fielder who can catch, Fawad Alam makes no mistake on the boundary 162/3

    18.2 nicely done from Saeed Ajmal, holding it back, White tried to get it away but could only heave it to the square leg boundary where Fawad Alam takes the catch 181/5
    19.1 gone! No mistake from Sami at short third man, it was full and outside off, Haddin throws his hands at it, gets an edge and neatly taken. Dot ball is what matters at this stage, but the total is already imposing 191/6
    19.2 Aamer strikes! Lovely yorker and Johnson can't get his bat down in time, it crashes into middle stump, lovely bowling 191/7
    19.3 well it's three wickets in three balls, but not a hat-trick! Another good yorker, Smith swished and misses, they attempt to run a bye to get Hussey on strike, Kamran is quick with the throw and Hussey is run out 191/8

    19.6 gone this time! Bowled him! How utterly extraordinary and bizarre. Decent length and line, Tait gives himself room and it cannons off his pads on to off stump. So we have a five-wicket maiden, yet Australia are completely on top. 191/10

    0.1 well, you get a sense this could fizzle out too quickly, Pakistan need almost 10 an over, this is full outside off, Akmal clears his front leg and slices it away off the outside edge down to Steve Smith on the third man boundary, who snaffles it easily enough 1/1
    3.2 Tait strikes this time! Similar to the last ball, Butt trying to give himself room, Tait follows him with a bouncer, the attempted pull this time gets high on the bat and loops gently to Hussey at mid on, Pakistan in real trouble 28/2
    4.2 well that's the end for Hafeez. Short and pulled firmly, actually timing it very well, but straight to Hussey at deep square, pretty tame end really, and things are in danger of unravelling here 34/3
    8.2 oh dear, all over for Umar, this time giving himself room and swiping at it horridly outside off stump, ends up slicing it to Hussey at deep point who juggles before securing the catch 70/4
    16.2 Nannes strikes back immediately! Misbah giving himself room looking to repeat the dose, but only succeeds it skying to mid off, who runs back and completes an excellent catch 132/7
    13.6 all over now! Full and Afridi attempted to thrash it away but it came off the pads and cannoned on to the stumps, very ambitious shot that didn't come off 117/5
    14.5 Nannes gets another, and Razzaq departs. That may be it for Pakistan. Full and straight, Razzaq tries to thrash it over long off but doesn't get nearly enough of it and Warner catches it on the boundary 120/6
    18.4 lovely catch! Fawad Alam swung hard at this down to long on, where Clarke skipped in and took an excellent catch diving forward 151/9
    17.4 slower and wider from Hussey, Aamer tries to fetch it but only succeeds in bunting down to mid off who collects an easy catch, the sting has long-since departed from this contest 146/8

    19.6 gone, all over. Saeed Ajmal gives himself room, Tait fires in a quick yorker and that is that. The players shake hands, Australia look very content, and they have been completely dominant today. 157/10
