View dismissal SE Marsh run out (Salman Butt/Nasir Jamshed) 16 27 1 0 59.25
8.6 from Umar Gul, run out, excellent throw from the deep, Marsh has to go, chopped it down wide of a diving point, cover gives chase, drags it back in and returns a throw on the half-volley to Nasir Jamshed at the non-striker's end, there's always three there but Hauritz is slow on his feet, the bails are clipped and he's well short of his ground. Salman Butt was the fielder, excellent work 41/1
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Younis Khan b Shahid Afridi 40 52 3 1 76.92
18.4 Haddin goes! Gave it some air, Haddin was drawn forward and he went through with the drive, was not entirely committed to it and hit it straight to Younis who timed his jump to perfection to snap an easy one. Shoaib will be a little relieved there 95/2
View dismissal SR Watson b Shahid Afridi 40 47 2 1 85.10
22.6 He's a legpsinner, but that's actually a classic offspinner's dismissal, threw it up outside off, drawing him forward, he lunges forward to defend, the ball cuts back in sharply to beat him through the gate and the stumps are rattled 108/5
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 4 4 0 0 100.00
19.6 the doosra does the trick, short of a length outside off, Clarke tried to open the face to run it down behind point, it spun away to take the outside edge and Akmal made no mistake 100/3
View dismissal A Symonds c †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 2 5 0 0 40.00
22.1 Australia in a spot of bother now, the offcutter bowled from the back of the hand, short outside off, spin it, made way for a cut behind point, gloved it straight to the keeper 107/4
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 2 13 0 0 15.38
24.4 Afridi's on a roll! Flighted outside off, Ferguson was sucked in, came forward to force it through cover, got a thick edge and Misbah snapped it well diving to his left, Australia slide further 109/6
JR Hopes not out 48 46 5 1 104.34
View dismissal NM Hauritz b Saeed Ajmal 1 3 0 0 33.33
25.2 bowled'im!! An embarassing dismissal that, spun in sharply from outside off, he shouldered arms to that one, not expecting it to spin as much, and hears the death rattle behind him as it clips off stump 110/7
View dismissal NW Bracken b Shahid Afridi 1 9 0 0 11.11
28.4 five-for for Afridi! Done in by the googly again, tossed up outside off and Bracken's eyes lit up, got forward to drive it forcefully through cover, misread the spin and was bowled through the gate. His third five-wicket haul, and his first against Australia 118/8
View dismissal SR Clark b Shahid Afridi 2 10 0 0 20.00
30.5 Afridi gets his best figures in ODIs! He's mastered the googly here, tossed it up outside off, landed on a good length and zipped back in take the off stump as Clarke was beaten through the gate as he came forward to defend 122/9
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus b Umar Gul 4 17 0 0 23.52
38.5 gone! Cleaned him up, straight on middle, he played across the line to work that wide of midwicket, missed it, clipped the pads and crashed into middle and off 168/10

View dismissal Salman Butt lbw b Hilfenhaus 5 10 1 0 50.00
1.4 he's given him! Australia strike early, landed on a good length on middle and leg and came on quickly to Butt as it swung in to rap him on the pads on the back foot, struck him in line with leg stump and the umpire Nadeem Ghauri raised his finger immediately 5/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c †Haddin b Clark 48 62 9 0 77.41
20.6 gone this time! Took a chance once too often, similar ball to the one that was edged for four earlier in the over, but gets some movement away from the batsman, Akmal goes after it, gets a thick edge and Haddin pouches it well moving to his right 81/3
View dismissal Younis Khan* c Bracken b Hopes 11 31 2 0 35.48
10.2 tame dismissal, they had quietened them down and one of them just had to snap! Short on the off, Younis walks across to pull it away over midwicket, mistimes it completely and he gifts an easy catch to Bracken at mid-on 33/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Haddin b Hopes 24 53 1 0 45.28
29.3 edged and Haddin takes a stunning catch! Tried to flirt with it and paid the price, a legcutter landing short outside off, he tried to run that past the keeper but couldn't get it wide enough, Haddin dived to his right, and dived low, to pluck that with his right hand inches from the ground 99/4

View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Bracken b Hilfenhaus 24 16 5 0 150.00
34.4 gone! But it may have come a little too late here. Slower one and Afridi failed to pick it, went through with his attempt to clear the in-field, mistimed it and Bracken took a dolly at mid-on 138/5
