James Pattinson1015005.00364220
Mitchell Starc1005145.10273040
38.4 to Asad Shafiq, flicked straight to short fine leg, angled in on a length into the pads from round the stumps, he plays the stroke with a flourish and finds the fielder, walks back disappointed. 185/4
38.6 to Umar Akmal, that is a wicket thrown away, second ball to the crease, Umar Akmal wants to power a short ball over deep midwicket, hits it straight to the man in the deep. 185/5
46.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, holes out to long off, pitched up full, Misbah winds up for the big swing but mistimes it for the fielder to come in and take it. 220/6
46.5 to Kamran Akmal, another beauty, Starc is wound up, he is visibly tired, but he produces another ripper, angled in again, straightens just enough to beat the forward push and this time, it strikes off. 223/7
Mitchell Johnson903323.66333030
26.3 to Nasir Jamshed, another short ball, and this time he's got him, Mitch smiles widely, sharp sharp bouncer head high, Jamshed tried to hook, keeper takes it safely. 129/1
28.2 to Shahid Afridi, short ball hammered straight to deep midwicket, sigh, that is it for the crowd, pulling off the front foot, and picking out deep midwicket perfectly. 140/2

Dan Christian1005505.50193010
David Hussey201407.0052000
Michael Clarke20311.50100000
32.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, loud appeal and Clarke strikes second ball, big strike too, Hafeez lunging forward to paddle a full delivery, missed, and was struck in front of middle and off, given by the umpire, Hafeez reviews, not much doubt about that one, Pakistan lose Hafeez and the review too. 155/3

Junaid Khan604227.00165100
44.3 to MEK Hussey, that is an ugly swipe from Hussey to give it away, charges out to a length ball, makes some room and has a big heave, misses and is bowled. 226/6
46.1 to DT Christian, Christian holes out needlessly, tries to loft a length ball over mid off, gets a lot of height, and that is all he gets, Farhat settles under it at mid off. 238/7
Mohammad Hafeez1004904.90321300
Abdur Rehman904124.55335100
8.5 to DA Warner, gone, too much of the same thing, fired in just shortish, Warner winds up for another heave, but the ball bounces and gets slightly big on him, and mid on runs back to take it over his head, Rehman is pumped up. 44/1
35.3 to MS Wade, there is the breakthrough, Rehman has done it for Pakistan, big gap between bat and pad as Wade pushes forward eagerly to a flighted length ball, it spins in through the gate and strikes off. 159/5
Shahid Afridi1006206.20226100
Saeed Ajmal913734.11351220
17.1 to MJ Clarke, got him, that instinct for skipping out gets the captain, sharp work from Kamran, Clarke misses the work to leg as the good length offbreak spins in past his pads, and Kamran is in position to take the ball and whip the bails off, Ajmal was sure immediately that was gone, Clarke is furious as he walks back. 88/2
21.4 to DJ Hussey, Ajmal has one more, and David Hussey's perky innings is over, leaned forward for the strike over deep midwicket again, but found wide long on instead, credit to Ajmal for tossing it up again after being hit for six earlier in the over. 105/3
23.5 to GJ Bailey, confusion, too much confusion, they have no clue what is hitting them, Australia, trying the sweep as a release stroke, doosra again, straightens on the middle stump, gloved in the air, slip has already moved to leg slip in anticipation of the sweep, the ball goes towards where he was originally, Kamran does well to react quickly, move to his right and take it. 108/4
