    39.2 chipped straight to mid off! Easy catch for Starc! Huge mistake from Shan. He skipped down and stayed leg side of the ball trying to loft up and over mid off, but he didn't quite get to it, and didn't get the elevation, just hit it flat at a nice catching height for Starc who does not have to move. A gift for the Australians 123/4
    3.3 Given lbw! Imam talks to Shan and runs out of time. He walks off without reviewing. Brilliant piece of bowling. 134kph from around the wicket, fuller and shaping in late, he was half forward driving down the wrong line, it hit him on the shin in line with off stump and ball tracking had it hitting the top of middle and leg. 2/1
    4.6 great catch at second slip! Full outside off, Azhar getting careless, looking as though he's trying to work to leg, thick outside flies quickly to Smith's right and he dives to snaffle it. Poor shot from the captain 11/2
    9.6 edged, caught behind! That's the big one. Hazlewood nabs him again. Back of a length just outside off, Babar feeling for it but probably had to play. Lovely line and length. Top class 20/3
    47.6 caught at leg slip! That was plan and it worked. Shorter length, a bit of bounce and turn, Asad is back trying to work it square but gets a little inside edge onto thigh pad and it goes straight to Warner at leg slip. He didn't have to move. 154/5
    67.2 caught ay short leg! Finally Labuschagne hangs on to one! A good length biting and turning, he pressed forward from the crease in hope but the extra bounce meant it came straight off the gloves of his low hands, it flew sharply to Labuschagne at short leg, he parried it up on the first attempt but didn't panic and pouched the second. His relief is palpable. His teammates give him a lot of pats on the back 201/6
    81.1 cleans him up! Full at the stumps, perhaps just a hint of shape in, Rizwan goes for the drive and it's through him 235/9
    75.3 Given lbw! Yasir reviews. He went back on his stumps and wiped across the line and was hit plumb in front. Nothing on RTS. No bat involved. Ball tracking has it pitching in line, hitting in line, smashing middle and off. Yasir's hopes of another century gone. Pakistan lose a review 221/7
    79.3 caught at mid off! Lyon has five! Shocking shot. Tossed up outside off, he tried to hit this into the river, sliced a thick top edge high to mid off, Hazlewood cruises under it and takes a simple catch 229/8
    81.6 it's all over, direct hit finishes things! Was a full delivery, clubbed towards mid-on, Musa wasn't running, Abbas was. He turned, but had little chance of beating Cummins' throw if it hit. And it did 239/10
