END OF OVER:

Australia will walk back satisfied. A below-par score for Pakistan on a track that really isn't doing much. They got off to a good start, with Karman Akmal going good, but the others weren't able to capitalise on the starts. Younis struggled with 18 off 49, and Yousuf and Misbah, despite getting forties, stepped it up really late. The batting Powerplay should have come earlier, and even once it was taken, only 31 came off it. Australia will fancy chasing this down, but Pakistan have a good bowling attack. Will Mohammad Asif be able to pull off something special on his comeback? There's also the spin duo of Ajmal and Afridi, so it should be interesting. Let's wait and see. Join us in sometime for the chase. Meanwhile, join Cricinfo's deputy editor Alex Brown and Pakistan editor Osman Samiuddin for the innings break discussion here.

Watson to Naved-ul-Hasan, FOUR runs, Naved is off, take his team past 200 by smashing this full delivery over the covers for a boundary

He had got himself into a bit of a hole before the Powerplay overs, and couldn't do much once the restrictions were brought in. Naved comes in

W
Watson to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 wide, OUT, hit wicket, what was he doing there? Given a wide, bowled full outside off, Misbah, trying to leave it alone given the width, trotted back onto his stumps, not strange for Misbah, he's made it a habit to get out in unusual ways
