  Pakistan innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c & b Bollinger 5 8 5 1 0 100.00
1.4 80.3 mph, goes for the pull with one that is not at all short enough. Top edge lands into Bollinger's waiting hands and Pakistan lose an early wicket. He was cramped as well, with the line being on middle and off. Pakistan wanted to be a lot more aggressive in this game, but that time it went against them 7/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Warner b Coulter-Nile 31 61 31 4 0 100.00
12.5 83.9 mph, short on off stump and he has slapped this to deep point. Warner makes amends for his misfield earlier with a good running catch right on the boundary. Made room for himself to try and power it over the boundary, but the fielder made good ground to his left to help Australia breathe freer 121/3
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* b Watson 13 13 10 2 0 130.00
4.2 84.6 mph, dragged on! This was full and outside off stump. Hafeez has been in a frenzy for quick runs and this time he wants to lash this through the covers, takes the inside edge and lights up the stumps. 25/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Maxwell b Starc 94 70 54 9 4 174.07
19.1 87.9 mph, is that it? No, he hasn't got hold of the full toss outside off. Swings as best he could but this goes more off the bottom of the bat and sits in the hands of long-on. Gets a pat on the back from his partner and he walks off, dribbling a whole load of sweat behind him 180/5
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood b Coulter-Nile 5 13 7 0 0 71.42
15.5 87.5 mph, he was never comfortable out there and a yorker on middle eases his misery. Goes for a leg-side slog and has his furniture rearranged 147/4

View dismissal DA Warner b Zulfiqar Babar 4 1 2 1 0 200.00
0.2 57.5 mph, off-stump is flat on the ground! This was flat and quick and Warner's cut is just a bit too slow! This is a huge wicket for Pakistan. Warner's been in outstanding form over the past few months. But Babar has outsmarted him. What a move by Pakistan. 4/1
View dismissal AJ Finch b Saeed Ajmal 65 79 54 7 2 120.37
17.4 66.1 mph, yorker uproots leg stump! Finch is gone! What a crucial blow! He was struggling to get the big hits and Ajmal fires in just about the perfect ball. Finch swings but cannot get under it 162/6
View dismissal SR Watson c †Kamran Akmal b Zulfiqar Babar 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
0.6 53.3 mph, turn outside off snares Watson's edge and the keeper takes it! That's two in the over for Babar. Pakistan are on a roll. Goes for another smash over the top but this grips and turns to foil him 8/2
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Ahmed Shehzad b Shahid Afridi 74 48 33 7 6 224.24
11.4 slog off the front foot again, but this time he's picked out deep midwicket! He picked it off a length and it looked good for another six, but the man steadied himself on the boundary and clings on. End of a match-changing innings from Maxwell and Pakistan will breathe a giant sigh of relief. Star man does the trick 126/3
View dismissal GJ Bailey* b Shahid Afridi 4 13 9 0 0 44.44
15.1 62.9 mph, looks to lash this through extra cover, but Afridi has snuck through his defences and shattered his stumps. Pakistan sniff a chance to reclaim the advantage here 146/4
View dismissal BJ Hodge c Saeed Ajmal b Umar Gul 2 6 3 0 0 66.66
16.3 86.8 mph, Ajmal, you beauty! This was hit like a rocket and he flings both hands up over his head at deep point and snares a very good catch! Pakistan are definitely pulling things back here. Full and outside off, Hodge had cleared his frong leg and had nailed this, but could not place it well enough. Ajmal wears a giant smile 155/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Shoaib Malik b Bilawal Bhatti 8 20 8 0 0 100.00
19.4 86.1 mph, holes out to deep midwicket! Pakistan have all but secured victory! Full and on the stumps, Haddin targets a slog to beat Malik, but he hasn't timed it well at all. The fielder runs forward and holds on to a good, low catch 173/9
View dismissal NM Coulter-Nile b Umar Gul 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
18.2 86.8 mph, cleans him up! Another one nice and full on middle and leg, Coulter-Nile looks to heave it into the leg side and loses his leg stump 163/7
View dismissal MA Starc run out (†Kamran Akmal/Shahid Afridi) 3 6 2 0 0 150.00
19.2 Bilawal Bhatti to Haddin, slower ball outside off, ends up a full toss which he drills to cover. Afridi fumbles, but he recovers quick enough to effect a run-out. Starc is the man who has to walk back, he was looking for the second run which was really not there. Might also have been a drop catch, but they get the wicket in the end 172/8
View dismissal GB Hogg b Bilawal Bhatti 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
19.6 83.7 mph, off goes the leg stump! Pakistan have held their nerve and record a much-needed win! They're back in the World T20. This was fullish and outside leg, Hogg makes room and looks for a loft down the ground, gets an outside edge that clatters into the stumps 175/10
