    1.1 you should have seen the swing! Starc comes over the wicket and gets it to swing back in sharply from the off stump line, Hafeez tried to flick it away but didn't read the movement, the umpire took his time, landed on off and replays showed that crashing into middle and leg 5/1
    5.4 Watson gets away with another full toss! Hardly a wicket-taking delivery but everything's going his way, Nazir meets it outside the leg stump and the ball hit the bottom half of the bat and spooned tamely to mid-off, easiest of catches, Nazir wouldn't want to see a replay of that, Nazir should have hit it straighter 29/2
    14.5 holed out to long-on! Tossed up and he stayed at the crease and tried to loft him downtown, the ball dipped and landed safely in Warner's palms in front of the rope 108/3
    15.1 Pakistan have lost their well set pair in a matter of three balls! Starc begins his new spell by bowling full from round the wicket, Kamran made room and tried to hammer it wide of extra cover but the fielder there, White, took a sharp catch falling to his right 108/4

    18.4 short ball outside off and Razzaq made himself a lot of room to carve that over the off side, he was targeting the third man boundary but the ball swirled just behind backward point, Watson takes the catch behind the circle 136/5
    19.2 that's as much as it gets with Afridi these days, Starc swung it in sharply from round the wicket, Afridi shuffled a long way across and exposed his stumps and his leg stump went back a couple of yards 144/6

    3.4 the youngster has got the Big Fish! Flighted on middle and Watson made a hint of room to slog that away and the ball hits his pads and the umpire is convinced that was hitting, landed in line with leg stump and replays showed it was hitting leg 15/1
    4.6 Australia have lost their openers to the sweep! Perhaps a broom would have been a better option than a bat, tossed up on the off stump and it was going through with the line, and Warner was on his knee punish that and was struck on the pads in front of the leg stump 19/2

    13.3 Australia are crumbling here and even 112 looks a long way off! Maxwell gives Hasan the charge and aims to loft it over the off side, hits the splice of the bat and lobs to Hafeez running to his right at backward point 65/5
    18.5 timber! Flatter delivery and Wade bravely tries to paddle it from the middle stump, the ball skidded through and knocked back the middle stump 110/6
    18.6 oh well the procession continues! The top spinner, Cummins was beaten for pace and lack of turn and was all over the place, the ball hits his pads as he tries to loft with the angle 110/7

    Both Pakistan and India had the chance to qualify for the semi-finals today; the difference was that Pakistan's attack relished the challenge of defending their total

  • Double delight at WW wickets

    ESPNcricinfo presents the Plays of the Day for the Super Eights game between Australia and Pakistan

  • Watson's dominance is absolute

    Shane Watson, who has yet to have a failure in this tournament, will be tested by Ajmal & Co when Australia takes on Pakistan in Colombo
