Mohammad Amir to Smith, FOUR, slips it on the pads, it was the slow off cutter, and Smith stays back to play the leg glance to perfection


Mohammad Amir to Smith, no run, full and angling away from Smith who goes for the swing to the on side but makes no contact


Mohammad Amir to Smith, 1 run, leans across to scoop the full delivery over square-leg. Kamran screams the fielder to release the ball to him. The batsmen think about the second but the fielder has released the ball quickly. Just a single. Kamran is happy.

Australia 144/6   SPD Smith 5* (3b 1x4)

Saeed Ajmal to Smith, OUT, Ajmal can be such a difficult bowler to get away in these circumstances. Those tantalizing doosras. It landed on the middle stump line, Smith was down the track and actually tried to loft it over the off-side which perhaps indicates that he thought it might be the doosra. But no wood on leather. The ball goes past the flashing blade and to Kamran Akmal who very calmly takes off the bails. Ajmal celebrates. What a lovely delivery

SPD Smith st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 5 (2m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Australia 144/7   SPD Smith 5 (4b 1x4)
