TOTAL133.3 Ov (RR: 2.92)391
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (David Warner, 2.3 ov), 2-8 (Marnus Labuschagne, 2.5 ov), 3-146 (Steven Smith, 56.2 ov), 4-187 (Usman Khawaja, 74.1 ov), 5-206 (Travis Head, 80.6 ov), 6-341 (Alex Carey, 119.6 ov), 7-353 (Cameron Green, 124.5 ov), 8-369 (Mitchell Starc, 129.6 ov), 9-374 (Nathan Lyon, 130.6 ov), 10-391 (Mitchell Swepson, 133.3 ov)
2.3 to DA Warner, huge appeal and given lbw! Will Warner review this? No, he doesn't. A good length delivery, shapes back and does Warner for the pace on the crease. That came back quite a lot way off the seam.. 8/1
2.5 to M Labuschagne, edged, caught behind! Boy oh boy, what a start! Full, angled across outside off, lures Labuschagne into a drive and it's a thin edge. Not sure that went into Rizwan's gloves entirely cleanly, but taken safely in the end. Poor stroke so early in the innings. 8/2
129.6 to MA Starc, full and reversed in on fourth stump at 142 kph, Starc tries to thump this over mid-off for the second time in the over but the sharp movement in produces a miscued shot. Nauman Ali shuffles forward and lunges to pouch a knee high catch.. 369/8
133.3 to MJ Swepson, timberrrrrrrr!!! Searing yorker on middle at 141 kph! Swepson's awkward stay is ended. Too much heat on this delivery angled in from around the wicket for the tailender to jam the bat down in time trying to keep it out.. 391/10
56.2 to SPD Smith, huge appeal and given lbw! Smith is cut short of three figures again (and won't be getting to 8000 runs today). That's superb bowling and he's fully deserved that wicket. A good length ball that shapes back quite sharply. Smith is caught on the crease and doesn't even consider the review as it thumps midway up the pad. Replay shows his bat got caught on the back pad as he tried to bring it across. 146/3
80.6 to TM Head, gem from Naseem! He's bowled beautifully all day and gets this one to shape in on the perfect fourth stump channel on a good length from around the stumps. Head is caught flat-footed prodding at this and a healthy nick carries through to Rizwan at shin height taken with a gentle tumble to his left.. 206/5
124.5 to C Green, through him! Wonderful bowling. Outstanding stuff from the 19-year-old Naseem. They'll be no maiden century today. This is a good length ball, shapes in sharply, Green is forward and is pushing away from the pad, the ball shoots through the gap into off stump. Fantastic bowling to end a super innings. 353/7
130.6 to NM Lyon, Bullseye! Naseem is a reverse swing demon in this spell! Searing inswinger at 144 kph, breaches a big gap between bat and pad as Lyon is late with a leg side flick. The ball caroms off the pads back halfway up middle and off stump. A 50-pointer in the double center of the dart board.. 374/9
119.6 to AT Carey, big appeal and given lbw! Carey plays around a straight one and he's gone for the review. There's no edge. This looks very straight. There's a delay in ball it comes, smashing middle. 341/6
74.1 to UT Khawaja, edge to slip! Fantastic one-handed catch diving to his right at slip! Flighted full on leg stump, Khawaja was very casual trying to flick this through midwicket. The ball turns sharply to clip the edge and the ball flies low just wide of the body width at shin height to Babar's right. Unlike the missed chance early in the day when he popped up too soon, this time he keeps his center of gravity low to lunge right and take confidently, and also maintains control after his elbows slam into the turf.. 187/4

Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Imam-ul-Haq, 12.1 ov), 2-170 (Abdullah Shafique, 71.2 ov), 3-214 (Azhar Ali, 86.4 ov), 4-248 (Fawad Alam, 106.3 ov), 5-256 (Mohammad Rizwan, 110.2 ov), 6-264 (Sajid Khan, 113.4 ov), 7-268 (Noman Ali, 115.1 ov), 8-268 (Hasan Ali, 115.5 ov), 9-268 (Babar Azam, 116.1 ov), 10-268 (Naseem Shah, 116.4 ov)
106.3 to Fawad Alam, through him! Starc gets Fawad again. That was a cracking delivery, good length, brings him forward and it nips back through the gap. Fantastic bowling, actually. Full credit to Starc. 248/4
110.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, goodness what a gem! Angled in on fourth stump at 138 kph and just straightens a fraction with just enough reverse swing to beat Rizwan defending inside the line on the off stump line. The ball fizzes past the edge and cannons into the top of off stump.. 256/5
116.1 to Babar Azam, full and angled into the pads at 138 kph on middle stump from around the wicket, Babar is beaten playing around his pad. Big lbw shout upheld! Babar reviews immediately. Live I felt this was sliding down leg but it was awfully tight. It may have been clipping leg stump. 50/50 call that goes in favor of Australia on-field and stays on-field with the umpire's call as ball-tracking shows it was ever sooooooo slightlyyyyyyyyyyy grazing leg stump.. 268/9
116.4 to Naseem Shah, yorker cleans up Naseem! 144 kph ball searing in full on off stump, Naseem's footwork is nowhere to be found. He was looking desperate in his short stay and only manages to last four balls as the ball crashes into off stump.. 268/10
12.1 to Imam-ul-Haq, huge appeal for lbw and given! Round the wicket, full at the stumps, Imam falling across it. He talks about the review and decides against it. Cummins strikes first ball on return. Well, it's probably hitting but not sure it's dead straight. Well, actually, it's smashing leg stump.. 20/1
86.4 to Azhar Ali, catch of the series from Cummins! Full on fourth stump at 138 kph, Azhar punches this uppishly back down the pitch at knee height and Cummins claws this one-handed with his right paw reaching out to his right while tumbling forward in his follow-through. He flings the ball in the air in delight before his body lands on the turf before letting out a wolf-like howl. The animal is unleashed!. 214/3
113.4 to Sajid Khan, it was always on the cards! Reversing in sharply at 137 kph with Sajid driving expansively away from his body and an inside edge cannons into the stumps! Sajid could have left this but Cummins' movement was teasing him enough to be reaching consistently a long way away from his body. This was on a sixth stump line but the inside edge playing well away from his pad driving at the ball produces a carom back through the gap onto leg stump and dislodge the bails.. 264/6
115.1 to Nauman Ali, stone dead! Cummins continues to bring the fire! Fullish length angled in on middle and off at 134 kph, Nauman defends around his pads and is beaten on the back leg on the knee roll. Aleem Dar triggers him immediately. Nauman goes for DRS but this is a hopeless review. Three reds light up, impact in line with off and the ball-tracking going into middle three-quarters of the way up.. 268/7
115.5 to Hasan Ali, Smith holds onto one at slip! Cummins has five! Full and shaping away from sixth stump at 141 kph, there was no need to play at this but Hasan is sucked in with all those deliveries that were reverse swinging into him leading up to this ball setting him up and now is done in by one shaping away. He doesn't move his feet at all, plays well away from his body and pokes an edge that carries low to Smith at shoe-top height. He reaches forward and snatches it inches from the ground.. 268/8
71.2 to Abdullah Shafique, appeal for caught behind...Dar says not out! The full appeal was a bit late, but Cummins has gone for the review. This slid on outside off, Shafique played forward. Has he nicked it? I think he has! There's a spike as it goes past the toe end. This is out. Excellent review and Australia have their breakthrough. 170/2

Fall of wickets: 1-96 (David Warner, 28.1 ov), 2-161 (Marnus Labuschagne, 47.3 ov), 3-216 (Steven Smith, 58.5 ov)
28.1 to DA Warner, reverse swing gem from Shaheen! Shaping in on a good length at 136 kph, Warner prods forward to defend but he's too far inside the line playing for the sharper reverse from Shaheen's previous over. The result is off stump being knocked back out of the ground. Warner goes up to Shaheen as he walks off and gives him a pat on the shoulder and a handshake for a spectacularly bowled delivery.. 96/1
58.5 to SPD Smith, edged, caught behind! A deserved wicket for Naseem. But Smith has reviewed. Thought I heard a noise. Was a full delivery outside off that he was just trying to angle away. Big spike. Not entirely sure how he didn't feel that. Anyway. 216/3
47.3 to M Labuschagne, Labuschagne is suckered into the outside leg trap after just two balls. Nauman pitches this a foot and a half outside leg, but instead of padding this away again, goes for the slog sweep and picks out Sajid at deep midwicket 15 yards in from the rope. Basic catch at chest height.. 161/2

84.1 to Sajid Khan, straight to midwicket! Australia on a roll. Full at the pads, clipped firmly in the air. Simple catch. 213/7
68.4 to Fawad Alam, huge appeal and given this time! Full and straight (again) Fawad misses it...and calls the review. Has he hit this one? This has missed the bat. And it's smashing halfway up middle. 165/4
70.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, searing yorker tails in sharply to fourth stump at 140 kph, nails him on the toe before he can jam the bat down and an lbw appeal is upheld! Rizwan walks off without going for DRS! Looked like contact was outside off stump on the first look live shot, but Rizwan storms straight past Babar.. 167/5
92.1 to Naseem Shah, and does the job! Cleans him up with a straight delivery. A triumph for Cummins in every way and a fitting way to clinch the series. 235/10
45.2 to Azhar Ali, Azhar goes to sweep a ball on seventh stump, Azhar misses off the pads and the ball pops up to Smith at slip. Massive appeal for a bat pad catch is denied. Australia goes for DRS but this looked clearly straight off the pad with no bat on the live shot. Sure enough there is nothing on Ultraedge and Azhar is a good foot and a half outside off when the ball hits the pad so lbw is out of play. But hang on! The third umpire feels differently than there is a faint spike! Well, this might be a bit controversial! There were a lot of little movements on Ultraedge before the ball got to the bat similar to the little movements as the ball was passing the bat. There didn't look like a genuine difference in the movements on the sound wave between the two sequences and the third umpire didn't call it out as a spike until the sixth or seventh time looking at it.. 105/2
61.2 to Imam-ul-Haq, inside edge into the pad, given caught at silly point! Iman has gone for the review. Not sure it was an instant review. Pitches outside leg, he plays forward, appears to be a big nick there! Yep, a spike and you can see the deflection. Australia have another opening. The tactic has worked. Imam kept playing at that line. 142/3
83.3 to Babar Azam, edged, great catch! Smith has held one. What a moment. You can hear a pin drop. Goes on straight outside off, Babar plays forward and Smith's grabs it low by his left boot. That's a gem of a catch. 213/6
87.6 to Hasan Ali, dragged on! Lyon gets him. Not quite sure how this happened in the end, but he's gone. On goodness, he hits the ball with the back of bat as he swings around. Think it took some helmet as well. That's a complicated way to be bowled!. 226/8
89.3 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, brilliant catch at deep square-leg! Afridi went for the big slog sweep, the ball skimmed out into the deep and Swepson did superbly. A five-wicket haul for Lyon. 232/9
30.5 to Abdullah Shafique, edged, caught behind! Early strike and Green has earned that. In the channel outside off, Shafique pushing away from the body again. He was challenged by Green this morning. Quality bowling. 77/1
