Umar Gul40842.00180010
4.1 to SR Watson, looked out but did he get an inside edge? Full on middle and leg, tried to force it through the leg side, is hit on the pads but replays showed he nicked it. 42/1
14.3 to NM Hauritz, gone! Back of a length outside off, opened the face and sliced it straight to Shoaib Malik at point, the slide continues. 94/7
14.6 to B Lee, an inswinger, in the slot on middle and he failed to get his bat down in time, drove at it but it was too quick, middle and leg take a beating. 94/8
18.1 to MJ North, timber!! Straight on middle, had some movement on it as well, North was into the shot a little too early as he tried to hoick that over midwicket, missed, and the stumps were pegged back. 105/9
Saeed Ajmal3.501914.95101000
19.5 to BW Hilfenhaus, stopped on him a little, tried to turn it away into the leg side, mistimed it to lob it straight to Afridi on the circle at midwicket. 108/10
Shahid Afridi411433.50141000
7.1 to JR Hopes, wicket first ball, no doubt about this one, went on straight, Hopes went for the slog-sweep, missed, and was struck in line with leg stump on the back leg. 61/2
7.2 to A Symonds, gone first ball and he's on a hatrick! Straighter one again, holding its line, bowled on middle, he's half-forward and just dabs at it playing for the spin, misses and is struck dead in front of middle. 61/3
9.3 to DJ Hussey, chopped it on!! Pakistan are on top, gave it some air, landed short, drifted into the batsman, went for the cut, got an inside edge straight onto the stumps, Afridi has three!. 69/4
Shoaib Malik301424.6670000
10.3 to BJ Haddin, Five down, slightly quicker through the air, bowled on middle, charged down the track to clear long-off, the bat turned in his hand as he went for it and ended miscuing it straight to Gul at long-on. 73/5
12.4 to CJ Ferguson, missed a straight one, expected it to spin in and pushed at it hard, beat the outside edge but Akmal was quick with his hands, taking off the bails with Ferguson's foot still in the air. 85/6

Brett Lee402215.50133001
2.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, banged in short on middle, went for the pull, mistimed it wide of midwicket, hit the high end of the bat and Laughlin dived full length to his left to pluck falling to his left. Shehzad stayed his ground to wait and check if he grassed it while making contact with the ground, but replays suggest the catch was clean. 17/1

Ben Hilfenhaus402015.00132000
