33.6 to Abdullah Shafique, another nervy charge from Shafique but this time can't escape! Lyon anticipates it and drags the length back fractionally. Shafique nowhere near getting to the pitch of the ball and continues on with a wild heave skying this back over Lyon's head. Cummins charges to his right from mid-off and takes a sharp catch reaching high to his right before tumbling to the turf. Not exactly the wisest move from Shafique with just three minutes to go until lunch.. 105/1
2856212.211264000
120.5 to Imam-ul-Haq, big appeal and given lbw! Full and straight, Imam playing across it and that looks out, but he's called for the review. Reckon it's pitched in line. And it's not going over. Hits the back leg. He's not hit it. Pitches on leg stump. Smashing middle.. 313/2

40.4 to DA Warner, done him! The breakthrough. Warner playing back again, looking to go square through the off side, the ball skids through this time and he misses it. Smashes halfway up middle stump. 156/1
2128914.239114004
135.5 to AT Carey, gem! Naseem's around the wicket angle foxes Carey. It was angled in on a good length on fourth stump and just held its line every so slightly to beat Carey defending inside the line. MCC Textbook top of off dismissal as the bails go flying.. 444/7
3058822.9314114003
84.6 to M Labuschagne, edged, taken at slip! Super bowling, excellent catch. Full outside off, draws the drive from Labuschange, had to reach for it away from the body, terrific catch diving to his right. 311/3
139.6 to MA Starc, fantastic yorker and given! But Starc reviews in a split second. Must have hit it? Pinpoint delivery. Not sure he's touched this. Heading for leg stump. Starc is already walking off as he wait for Ultra Edge. Well, there's a small murmur but third umpire says there's also a gap. Smashing leg stump. 459/9
38.1910762.8017514001
53.3 to UT Khawaja, big shouts for a catch at forward short leg as Khawaja bungles a reverse sweep! Live this looked like it missed bat and glove and came off either the arm or pad. Pakistan call for a DRS review. First replay though looks like it has come off the wrist area of the glove. Live, it looked like the white part of his long sleeve that the ball hit but instead it was the white part of his wrist area of the glove and popped up to forward short leg. Aleem Dar has got one wrong, and Khawaja has gotten this very very wrong to fall three short of a century!. 203/2
87.4 to TM Head, edged, caught behind! Skids on outside off, Head looking for a back-foot drive and it's a top edge that is very well taken. 326/4
120.4 to C Green, top edge, taken at short fine leg! Well, the tactic works. Wide outside leg stump, Green goes for the sweep and he can't keep it down. Loopy catch. Not sure he can quite believe that. Lots of runs left in the middle. 407/5
124.5 to SPD Smith, Nauman's negative line outside leg has now fetched two wickets! Whereas Green top-edged sweep went to fine leg, Smith's attempted sweep catches gloves as the ball keeps a touch low. Catch well held by Rizwan. Smith storms off muttering under his breath, presumably that he's just missed a triple-century if Australia had batted through the rest of day five.. 422/6
138.3 to PJ Cummins, driven straight to cover! And that his fifth wicket. Tossed up outside off, Cummins comes forward and can't keep the shot down. Done in the flight.. 455/8
140.1 to NM Lyon, missed the sweep and given lbw! Lyon has called for the review but is also walking off. Curious scenes. A length delivery, no contact with bat, takes him on the back leg. Looks good. Hitting middle and off. A career-best six for Nauman. 459/10
