  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Mohammad Asif 5 34 19 1 0 26.31
7.2 80.5 mph, gone! Another falls. Game on. Asif gets his line and length right, full on off stump with a hint of shape back in, Watson misses his drive and is caught right in front. Ian Gould quickly raises the finger, but Watson isn't happy and takes a while to leave 20/2
View dismissal SM Katich lbw b Mohammad Amir 13 27 21 2 0 61.90
6.1 87.6 mph, gone! A breakthrough for Pakistan and Katich plays for shuffling across the crease as he's caught on off stump with the ball angling towards middle and leg. A strength can often be a weakness and he'll always been danger if he misses the ball - he should have gone like that early at Lord's. Rudi raises his slow finger to send him on the way 20/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Mohammad Asif 6 40 21 0 0 28.57
13.5 80.0 mph, gone! Again Ponting thrusts the left leg forward and swishes across the pad at a ball nipping back in to him. He's struck infront of middle and leg, huge appeal from bowler and fielders and that's out! A remarkable exhibition of the control of seam and swing from Asif, and Australia are in all sorts of trouble now 29/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke b Umar Gul 3 23 20 0 0 15.00
12.3 85.4 mph, gone! Australia all over the shop as Clarke is cleaned up. Was the perfect full length and he drove all around it having played two wild shots previously. Gul has pitched the ball up and got rewards 27/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b Umar Gul 5 24 13 1 0 38.46
16.5 80.3 mph, Hussey goes! Gul strikes! He fired the ball full and straight, snaking it back into the batsman to strike him on the pad. Rudi's slow finger of death begins to rise, and Hussey's got to go. He's unlucky there, replays suggest the ball may have missed leg stump. But look at this, Australia are 41 for 5! 41/5
View dismissal MJ North c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Amin 16 44 33 2 0 48.48
22.5 72.4 mph, Amin strikes! North falls! Kamran holds a catch! Amin picks up his first Test wicket as he lands one on a length around off stump. North could have left that, but he pushed forward in defence and had to reach for the ball. A healthy edge, and Kamran takes a good catch diving to his left. North is utterly disconsolate as he trudges off. Kamran and Amin are over the moon! 60/6
View dismissal TD Paine c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 17 83 47 2 0 36.17
33.1 78.4 mph, and that, as they say, is that! A regulation outswinger, a loose leaning waft of a cut, a thin snick, and Kamran Akmal wraps up an outstanding effort from Pakistan by claiming the decisive catch 88/10
View dismissal SPD Smith b Mohammad Amir 10 9 8 2 0 125.00
25.1 83.7 mph, Done him first ball! That's a beauty from Aamer, snaking back through bat and ball to smash into middle stump! Smith was angling through midwicket but the ball simply wasn't there 73/7
View dismissal MG Johnson b Mohammad Amir 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
25.2 83.3 mph, Oh. My. Goodness. What a beauty from Aamer, that was unplayable, full on middle and off and it shaped away and took off stump. Aamer is on a hat-trick! 73/8
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus run out (Umar Amin/†Kamran Akmal) 3 36 16 0 0 18.75
32.4 Umar Gul to Paine, another one bites the dust, and what a way to go! Paine chopped down to third man, and sized up a tight third run, but a sliding stop and a fine flat throw came in from Umar Amin in the deep, and though Kamran Akmal had to gather high to remove the bails, he did so with Hilfenhaus's bat still short of the crease! 86/9

View dismissal Imran Farhat lbw b Watson 43 140 84 5 0 51.19
33.3 75.8 mph, full length, swinging back in, and that is totally plumb! Watto's golden arm does the trick, and how much did they need that breakthrough! 133/2
View dismissal Salman Butt* b Hilfenhaus 45 79 68 8 0 66.17
19.4 83.2 mph, gone this time! Australia finally get the breakthrough as Hilfenhaus pitches the ball nice and full, finding significant swing back in to the left-hander. Butt shaped to whip through the leg side, but was done in by the swing and the wide angle from round the wicket. The ball snuck past the bat and clattered into the stumps! 80/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †Paine b Watson 30 77 66 3 0 45.45
37.2 79.7 mph, Watson, the destroyer! Outside off, swinging late, Azhar pokes defensively, and Paine behind the stumps gathers supremely in one hand as he dives to his right! That is very timely indeed, especially with the light fading now 140/3
View dismissal Umar Amin c North b Hilfenhaus 25 78 52 4 0 48.07
50.3 84.3 mph, but now he's gone! Hilfenhaus sent down a well-directed bouncer, which Amin saw early and tried to duck underneath. But he left his bat poking straight up like a periscope, the ball struck the side of the bat and looped gently to square leg, and Amin's got to go. He was starting to look really good at the crease, and will be very disappointed at this dismissal 195/5
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Paine b Johnson 21 29 20 1 1 105.00
43.4 89.6 mph, gone! There's the breakthrough. A full length outside off draws Umar onto the front foot and the ball takes the outside edge through to the very tidy Tim Paine 171/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Paine b Watson 26 80 48 3 0 54.16
60.5 78.4 mph, Watson has six, Malik wanted to use the close-set field to find a boundary, so attempted an enormous mow across the line, didn't get much of it and ended up offering a looping top-edge that Paine comfortably held on to 234/9
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c North b Watson 15 28 22 3 0 68.18
56.5 79.8 mph, Watson has done it again! So simple, it was fullish and swinging away, Kamran was rooted to the crease and aimed a nothing, open-faced defensive prod that went through gently, low to Marcus North at first slip 222/6
View dismissal Mohammad Amir lbw b Watson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
56.6 79.7 mph, Watson on a hat-trick! Aamer gone first ball! Looks like a poor decision on replay but first up looked stone dead. Fullish as usual from Watson, swinging in and Aamer shouldered arms and watched in horror as the ball snaked back from outside off and crashed into his pads. Rudi gave him out quickly, it looked out, but replays show it didn't swing enough and would have missed off stump 222/7
View dismissal Umar Gul b Watson 0 6 7 0 0 0.00
58.6 82.0 mph, Bowled him! Watson strikes again - five wickets for him! Sensational stuff, this is inspiration to every senior Sunday-league player, Watson is doing nothing more than bowling full and straight, Gul plays all around it as it gently swings in a fraction, catches the inside edge and cannons on to the off stump 224/8
View dismissal Danish Kaneria run out (Smith) 15 28 18 1 0 83.33
64.5 Hilfenhaus to Mohammad Asif, chaos! Who knows what is going on out there, not the Pakistan batmen that's for sure! It was full and a slower ball, Asif found a leading edge the looped agonisingly towards mid off, it landed short but Kaneria set off for a single, Asif sent him back but the throw came in and caught him short of the crease. While the umpire called for the TV replay to confirm, Pakistan took a single, but in the end it didn't count. Got it? Me neither. Phew! Pakistan 258 all out - 170 ahead. 258/10

15.5 71.1 mph, played on! The change works again, and this will be called another masterstroke from Salman Butt.

View dismissal SM Katich b Mohammad Amir 11 20 19 1 0 57.89
4.3 85.5 mph, Aamer strikes! Katich falls, finally he's bowled behind his legs. Throughout the series we've seen him walk across his stumps, exposing leg stump, but never missing when the bowler aimed there, this time it was too swift for him, and crashed into leg stump. First time in 10 Tests Katich hasn't made a half-century and now Ricky Ponting has a huge task on his hands. 15/1

75.3 52.0 mph, oh, what a way to go! Short, slow, horrible looping long-hop from Kaneria, but it spun and bounced, and Paine's eyes had lit up too much to go back on the stroke. A simple toe-ended slap to cover, and Australia are in deep deep do-do now ... 246/7
View dismissal SPD Smith b Umar Gul 77 130 100 9 2 77.00
95.3 gone this time! Smith falls to another slower ball from Gul, dragging it on to his stumps off a bottom edge but it ends a sensational knock. He's carried the lead 179 which is plenty for the Australian bowlers to go at. 349/10
