Australia v Pakistan

Australia won by 34 runs

5.4

Mohammad Sami to Warner, OUT, gone this time! Sami strikes! That is massive relief for Pakistan, things were looking out of hand, but this was dug in a touch short, Warner tried to pull but could only top-edge it down to Umar Akmal, who made no mistake on the square leg boundary

DA Warner c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Sami 26 (21m 18b 4x4 1x6) SR: 144.44

Australia 51/1   SR Watson 25* (16b 1x4 1x6)   Mohammad Sami 0.4-0-3-1

7.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Clarke, OUT, gone! Real bonus for Hafeez and Pakistan! Quicker ball, Clarke gave himself room to try and cut it away, but it zipped through and castled middle stump

MJ Clarke b Mohammad Hafeez 2 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 64/2   SR Watson 36* (26b 3x4 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.5-0-33-1

16.1

Saeed Ajmal to DJ Hussey, OUT, finally, some peace for Pakistan. Hussey departs, he tried to mow this away into the leg side again, but finally finds a fielder who can catch, Fawad Alam makes no mistake on the boundary

DJ Hussey c Fawad Alam b Saeed Ajmal 53 (28m 29b 2x4 5x6) SR: 182.75

Australia 162/3   SR Watson 80* (47b 7x4 4x6)   Saeed Ajmal 2.1-0-17-1

16.4

Saeed Ajmal to Watson, OUT, good ball from Saeed Ajmal sees the end of Watson! Quicker ball and flat and full, Watson looking to unleash another huge leg-side swipe, misses and is struck bang in front. Brings the end to a brilliant knock

SR Watson lbw b Saeed Ajmal 81 (62m 49b 7x4 4x6) SR: 165.30

Australia 164/4   MEK Hussey 1* (1b)   Saeed Ajmal 2.4-0-19-2

18.2

Saeed Ajmal to White, OUT, nicely done from Saeed Ajmal, holding it back, White tried to get it away but could only heave it to the square leg boundary where Fawad Alam takes the catch

CL White c Fawad Alam b Saeed Ajmal 9 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Australia 181/5   MEK Hussey 8* (5b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.2-0-24-3

19.1

Mohammad Amir to Haddin, OUT, gone! No mistake from Sami at short third man, it was full and outside off, Haddin throws his hands at it, gets an edge and neatly taken. Dot ball is what matters at this stage, but the total is already imposing

BJ Haddin c Mohammad Sami b Mohammad Amir 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 191/6   MEK Hussey 17* (8b 1x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 3.1-0-23-1

19.2

Mohammad Amir to Johnson, OUT, Aamer strikes! Lovely yorker and Johnson can't get his bat down in time, it crashes into middle stump, lovely bowling

MG Johnson b Mohammad Amir 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 191/7   MEK Hussey 17* (8b 1x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 3.2-0-23-2

19.3

Mohammad Amir to Smith, OUT, well it's three wickets in three balls, but not a hat-trick! Another good yorker, Smith swished and misses, they attempt to run a bye to get Hussey on strike, Kamran is quick with the throw and Hussey is run out

MEK Hussey run out 17 (19m 8b 1x4 1x6) SR: 212.50

Australia 191/8   SPD Smith 0* (1b)   Mohammad Amir 3.3-0-23-2

19.4

Mohammad Amir to Nannes, OUT, well, what have we here!? Is it four in four!? Another yorker, another swish, another attempted bye, and yes, another run out. Good stuff from Pakistan in this final over, a touch farcical out there, it must be said.

SPD Smith run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 191/9   DP Nannes 0* (1b)   Mohammad Amir 3.4-0-23-2

19.6

Mohammad Amir to Tait, OUT, gone this time! Bowled him! How utterly extraordinary and bizarre. Decent length and line, Tait gives himself room and it cannons off his pads on to off stump. So we have a five-wicket maiden, yet Australia are completely on top.

SW Tait b Mohammad Amir 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 191/10   DP Nannes 0* (1b)   Mohammad Amir 4-1-23-3
