Mohammad Amir1142031.81542000
6.1 to SM Katich, gone! A breakthrough for Pakistan and Katich plays for shuffling across the crease as he's caught on off stump with the ball angling towards middle and leg. A strength can often be a weakness and he'll always been danger if he misses the ball - he should have gone like that early at Lord's. Rudi raises his slow finger to send him on the way. 20/1
25.1 to SPD Smith, Done him first ball! That's a beauty from Aamer, snaking back through bat and ball to smash into middle stump! Smith was angling through midwicket but the ball simply wasn't there. 73/7
25.2 to MG Johnson, Oh. My. Goodness. What a beauty from Aamer, that was unplayable, full on middle and off and it shaped away and took off stump. Aamer is on a hat-trick!. 73/8
Mohammad Asif10.113032.95494001
7.2 to SR Watson, gone! Another falls. Game on. Asif gets his line and length right, full on off stump with a hint of shape back in, Watson misses his drive and is caught right in front. Ian Gould quickly raises the finger, but Watson isn't happy and takes a while to leave. 20/2
13.5 to RT Ponting, gone! Again Ponting thrusts the left leg forward and swishes across the pad at a ball nipping back in to him. He's struck infront of middle and leg, huge appeal from bowler and fielders and that's out! A remarkable exhibition of the control of seam and swing from Asif, and Australia are in all sorts of trouble now. 29/4
33.1 to TD Paine, and that, as they say, is that! A regulation outswinger, a loose leaning waft of a cut, a thin snick, and Kamran Akmal wraps up an outstanding effort from Pakistan by claiming the decisive catch. 88/10
Umar Gul931621.77471001
12.3 to MJ Clarke, gone! Australia all over the shop as Clarke is cleaned up. Was the perfect full length and he drove all around it having played two wild shots previously. Gul has pitched the ball up and got rewards. 27/3
16.5 to MEK Hussey, Hussey goes! Gul strikes! He fired the ball full and straight, snaking it back into the batsman to strike him on the pad. Rudi's slow finger of death begins to rise, and Hussey's got to go. He's unlucky there, replays suggest the ball may have missed leg stump. But look at this, Australia are 41 for 5!. 41/5
Umar Amin20713.5081000
22.5 to MJ North, Amin strikes! North falls! Kamran holds a catch! Amin picks up his first Test wicket as he lands one on a length around off stump. North could have left that, but he pushed forward in defence and had to reach for the ball. A healthy edge, and Kamran takes a good catch diving to his left. North is utterly disconsolate as he trudges off. Kamran and Amin are over the moon!. 60/6

Doug Bollinger1745002.94805005
Ben Hilfenhaus20.537723.699511003
19.4 to Salman Butt, gone this time! Australia finally get the breakthrough as Hilfenhaus pitches the ball nice and full, finding significant swing back in to the left-hander. Butt shaped to whip through the leg side, but was done in by the swing and the wide angle from round the wicket. The ball snuck past the bat and clattered into the stumps!. 80/1
50.3 to Umar Amin, but now he's gone! Hilfenhaus sent down a well-directed bouncer, which Amin saw early and tried to duck underneath. But he left his bat poking straight up like a periscope, the ball struck the side of the bat and looped gently to square leg, and Amin's got to go. He was starting to look really good at the crease, and will be very disappointed at this dismissal. 195/5
Shane Watson1133363.00504000
33.3 to Imran Farhat, full length, swinging back in, and that is totally plumb! Watto's golden arm does the trick, and how much did they need that breakthrough!. 133/2
37.2 to Azhar Ali, Watson, the destroyer! Outside off, swinging late, Azhar pokes defensively, and Paine behind the stumps gathers supremely in one hand as he dives to his right! That is very timely indeed, especially with the light fading now. 140/3
56.5 to Kamran Akmal, Watson has done it again! So simple, it was fullish and swinging away, Kamran was rooted to the crease and aimed a nothing, open-faced defensive prod that went through gently, low to Marcus North at first slip. 222/6
56.6 to Mohammad Amir, Watson on a hat-trick! Aamer gone first ball! Looks like a poor decision on replay but first up looked stone dead. Fullish as usual from Watson, swinging in and Aamer shouldered arms and watched in horror as the ball snaked back from outside off and crashed into his pads. Rudi gave him out quickly, it looked out, but replays show it didn't swing enough and would have missed off stump. 222/7
58.6 to Umar Gul, Bowled him! Watson strikes again - five wickets for him! Sensational stuff, this is inspiration to every senior Sunday-league player, Watson is doing nothing more than bowling full and straight, Gul plays all around it as it gently swings in a fraction, catches the inside edge and cannons on to the off stump. 224/8
60.5 to Shoaib Malik, Watson has six, Malik wanted to use the close-set field to find a boundary, so attempted an enormous mow across the line, didn't get much of it and ended up offering a looping top-edge that Paine comfortably held on to. 234/9
Mitchell Johnson1507114.73619001
43.4 to Umar Akmal, gone! There's the breakthrough. A full length outside off draws Umar onto the front foot and the ball takes the outside edge through to the very tidy Tim Paine. 171/4

Mohammad Amir2768643.1812413000
4.3 to SM Katich, Aamer strikes! Katich falls, finally he's bowled behind his legs. Throughout the series we've seen him walk across his stumps, exposing leg stump, but never missing when the bowler aimed there, this time it was too swift for him, and crashed into leg stump. First time in 10 Tests Katich hasn't made a half-century and now Ricky Ponting has a huge task on his hands.. 15/1
43.4 to RT Ponting, massive breakthrough! A booming outswinger, far too wide to be chasing, but Ponting has a slash, gets a faint nick, and Aamer has his man!. 144/3
47.2 to MEK Hussey, gone! Great delivery from Aamer, that one exploded off the seam, cracked the gloves and looped tantalisingly towards Umar Akmal at second slip who reached forward and scooped a vital chance! What a breakthrough, Australia are -12 for 4, and surely, surely, Pakistan have to ... no ... I'm not even saying it. 158/4
49.1 to MJ North, Mohammad Aamer is on fire! North stands up in the crease, drives off the back foot, snicks into his leg stump, and Australia's revival is in tatters!. 164/5
Mohammad Asif2648323.1912315000
66.1 to MJ Clarke, that is simply exceptional! Perfect line, perfect length first-up, grazes the edge in a McGrath-esque half-bat's-width movement, and a simple nick to the keeper!. 217/6
84.3 to MG Johnson, Asif strikes! Johnson falls lbw to a delivery that pitched just in line, swung back a fraction, beat the defensive shot and thudded into the pad, it looked tight and replays confirmed it would have taken leg stump. Crucial wicket for Pakistan!. 283/8
Umar Gul15.318015.16566005
95.3 to SPD Smith, gone this time! Smith falls to another slower ball from Gul, dragging it on to his stumps off a bottom edge but it ends a sensational knock. He's carried the lead 179 which is plenty for the Australian bowlers to go at.. 349/10
Umar Amin611212.00280020
15.5 to SR Watson, played on! The change works again, and this will be called another masterstroke from Salman Butt. Watson tried to dab the ball down towards gully but it moved in towards him sharply and he couldn't counter the movement this time. The ball takes the inside edge and cannons into the leg stump!. 55/2
Danish Kaneria2127423.52885203
75.3 to TD Paine, oh, what a way to go! Short, slow, horrible looping long-hop from Kaneria, but it spun and bounced, and Paine's eyes had lit up too much to go back on the stroke. A simple toe-ended slap to cover, and Australia are in deep deep do-do now .... 246/7
89.5 to BW Hilfenhaus, Kaneria breaks through! Good move by Butt in the end! Again a touch of air, spinning from around off stump, Hilfenhaus tried to prod it away into the off stump but it spun, clipped the edge and went through to slip. Huge breakthrough. 320/9

Doug Bollinger1325133.92597003
32.6 to Imran Farhat, yorked him! Farhat goes as he plays over the top of an excellent inswinging delivery that cracks the base of off stump. Is there a twist in the tail to come?. 137/2
34.6 to Umar Amin, Bollinger has done it! Hold your breath folks, this could get tense again! Umar Amin had an aimless fiddle outside off, only succeeded in feathering a catch behind. 137/3
38.4 to Azhar Ali, he's gone now! Bollinger has another! It pitched on a length, moved away a fraction, Ali had a nibble outside off stump and feathered an edge through to Paine. Well, well, well.... 146/4
Ben Hilfenhaus1323933.00636001
5.1 to Salman Butt, Butt's nervy innings comes to a swift end! Hilfenhaus gets the breakthrough Australia needed! A man was positioned at short midwicket, no doubt to make Butt think the full inswinger was coming. But Hilfenhaus landed it on a length and moved the ball away from him through the air and off the pitch, taking a thick edge which flew straight to Michael Clarke at a wide second slip. No mistake from him, and this match is really alive now. 27/1
41.4 to Umar Akmal, Umar gone! Hilfenhaus strikes and now Australia are really interested! Umar has looked nervy all morning, not his usual swashbucking self at all, his feet have been stuck, he's pushed at the ball and that has proved his undoing here. Fullish length from Hilfenhaus, shaping away and Umar prodded an edge through to Paine. 150/5
45.4 to Shoaib Malik, Malik has gone! Great catch from North! Oh dear, this game refuses to die! Hilfenhaus went full, Malik crashed it towards cover and North held on to a tough chance, close in at extra cover. 161/6
Mitchell Johnson10.414113.84476001
50.3 to Kamran Akmal, what a catch! Top stuff from Hussey, he caught this one cleanly! Full and wide from Johnson, Kamran through he had crashed the winning runs but Hussey diving full length to his left at gully plucked it out of the air. 179/7
