    3.4 Wahab has Khawaja now. He lets out a roar. Khawaja steps away outside leg to crash this through the covers. But this was a full missile. Khawaja can't make contact. Thde left-arm quick pings the middle stump. It gets tilted back 28/1
    7.2 The arm-ball does the trick. Australia's top-three batsmen have all been bowled. This rushes on off the surface, snakes in, keeps low. Beats Finch's defences and raps middle 57/3
    5.1 Wahab nails the stumps again, hits the top of middle. Warner is gone now. 148.1ks dynamite! Back of a length and ducks back in, Warner, who had aimed to make swinging room and open up the off side, is caught in an awkward tangle. Wahab KO's Warner. The stumps light up... 42/2

    5.3 Sharjeel's joyride is over! Again not all that short, but Sharjeel is tempted into that big pull. He goes hard and can only drag it on to his leg stump off a thickish inside edge. And the required rate has shot to 10.62 40/2
    2.5 Shehzad swings now, top-edges it into the hands of NCN at mid-off, just behind the bowler. Head-high clasp Back of a length and angled in around off, Shehzad targets the leg side with an ambitious slog and makes a mess of it. He ends up offering a skier 20/1
    17.3 third time's the charm. Back of the hand slower ball on middle, Latif swings early to the leg side and does not connect. Faulkner hits the timber and lets out a roar 147/5

    10.3 bowled'em. Zampa gives this plenty of air, it dips and hits the stumps. Umar drops to one knee for a slog sweep, but does not make contact. Nice change up in pace and flight, the middle stump is pushed back 85/3
    13.2 Six and out, sums up Afridi! He ventures down the track again. The legspinner retorts. He darts it flatter and wider outside off. Turns away with bounce. Afridi can't reach and connect. Nevill does the rest. Is that Afridi's final innings for Pakistan? 110/4

    17.4 The back-of-the-hand slower ball does the damage again. Back of a length and turning away outside off, Imad Wasim throws his bat at it and skews it in the air. NCN runs across from cover and pouches it 147/6
    19.1 Faulkner gets his fourth! Sarfraz attempts a reverse sweep against a back of the hand slower ball. He can only spoon a catch to backward point (or square leg if you'd like? 164/7
    19.2 Make that a five-for, the first in this tournament! Afridi can't watch this in the dug out. He has his head down with his eyes closed. Wahab swings and sends a top edge to short third man 164/8
