Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Mohammad Hafeez, 4.4 ov), 2-28 (Azhar Ali, 6.1 ov), 3-40 (Nasir Jamshed, 9.5 ov), 4-99 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 24.4 ov), 5-160 (Asad Shafiq, 35.3 ov), 6-174 (Kamran Akmal, 39.3 ov), 7-175 (Shahid Afridi, 39.5 ov), 8-180 (Umar Akmal, 41.1 ov), 9-184 (Sohail Tanvir, 42.2 ov), 10-198 (Saeed Ajmal, 45.1 ov)
4.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, soft dismissal! He hits it straight to short extra cover, it was on a good length outside off and Hafeez stabbed at it, didn't go through with the shot and it lobbed straight to David Hussey, Hafeez's ordinary one-day form continues. 20/1
6.1 to Azhar Ali, and another soft dismissal! Chipped to mid-on, it was shaping in full on the pads and Azhar was looking to chip it over the on side, the trouble was the bat turned as he made contact and hence mistimed it, Johnson jogged to his right and caught it on the fall. 28/2
45.1 to Saeed Ajmal, well we didn't need the extra time after all! Pattinson fires it full and straight on the leg stump, Ajmal couldn't resist the big shot but played too early, the ball went straight through and pushed back the leg stump. 198/10
9.5 to Nasir Jamshed, good comeback by Starc and better reflexes from Wade! Starc hit the deck harder this time to vary his length, there was extra bounce which Jamshed wasn't ready for, he tried to fend it off outside the off stump but the ball took the top half of the bat and Wade jumped to his left and took it. 40/3
35.3 to Asad Shafiq, and the start of the Powerplay brings a wicket! Shafiq was trying to repeat the shot from the previous ball, made a lot of room to spank it through cover, Starc fired it full and on the stumps from round the wicket, Shafiq made no contact and lost his stumps. 160/5
39.3 to Kamran Akmal, very soft dismissal in the end! Starc pitched it on a good length from round the wicket, Kamran was trying to tuck it over the on side but he ended up playing it too early and tamely chipped it to Clarke at midwicket. 174/6
39.5 to Shahid Afridi, gone first ball! Clever move to bring in a slip because he has hit it straight there! Starc went back to over the wicket for Afridi, pitched it up on the off stump and drew him forward to drive, thick outside edge to Clarke, great captaincy and Starc has four wickets. 175/7
41.1 to Umar Akmal, Starc picks up five! Starc continues his round the wicket line to Umar Akmal, he sprays it full and wide and invites the lofted shot, Umar made room and tried to clear the infield but didn't get the elevation, straight to Bailey at cover. 180/8
42.2 to Sohail Tanvir, the decline continues! Poor shot by Tanvir, not sure what he was attempting there, made room and tried to scoop it over mid-on, miscued it and Hussey ran across to his right and took a simple catch. 184/9
24.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Christian breaks the stand and Misbah perishes trying to be aggressive, Christian took a lot of pace off the ball with his offcutter, the keeper was up to the stumps to stifle the batsman, Misbah tried to hoick it over the on side and got a thick inside edge to the stumps. 99/4

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (David Warner, 3.4 ov), 2-42 (Matthew Wade, 10.6 ov), 3-57 (Michael Hussey, 15.1 ov), 4-67 (David Hussey, 17.6 ov), 5-121 (Michael Clarke, 33.5 ov), 6-184 (Glenn Maxwell, 45.3 ov)
3.4 to DA Warner, swing and a miss! Warner will not want to see the replay, tossed up on off and middle and he was down on his knee slogging against the spin, missed everything and hit the stumps. 13/1
33.5 to MJ Clarke, Hafeez has got the Big Fish! Trapped on the back foot and quite straightforward, bowls it flatter on middle and leg, Clarke was looking to work it away off the back foot, the ball skidded and hit his pads in front of the leg stump. 121/5
10.6 to MS Wade, strikes in his first over! Poor shot by Wade, he tried slogging him over midwicket, looked like the wrong 'un, the top edge swirled in the air and Misbah ran across and took it very close to Afridi. 42/2
15.1 to MEK Hussey, He's been given lbw and Hussey is reviewing it! Hussey is plumb in front I'm afraid, it landed on off and middle and straightened, Hussey was trapped on the back foot and the ball would have crashed onto the stumps, no inside edge, straightforward for Bowden. 57/3
17.6 to DJ Hussey, the spinners have really pulled things back here! Caught at slip, after inducing an edge off Clarle earlier in the over Ajmal gets one off Hussey, Hussey didn't read the doosra, he was forward to defend and the outside edge went straight to Misbah at first slip. 67/4
45.3 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell has thrown it away with a reverse sweep! Ajmal was bowling round the wicket, the batsman missed it completely and was struck in line with the stumps, not sure why Maxwell attempted this stunt yet again against Ajmal. But hang on...that pitched outside the leg stump, so Bowden didn't exactly get it right there. 184/6
